I am using a hosted sharepoint but I don't have the dll's to develop against it. How can I get them

Do you mean the webpart dll's they are located in the _app_bin folder sample: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\<port>\_app_bin

I do not have access to that directory it is a hosted solution.

Usually all dll's can be found there: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\ISAPI

You can't. You will need to programatically communicate with your SharePoint site using web services instead of the object model. See http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms445760.aspx

I don't understand why you cannot use object model and have to use web services Can you explain please I just copy the microsoft.sharepoint.dll to my devel machine and it looks fine to me, even if you get it from other computers running MOSS or SPS, it will still do the job...

Yes you can, I'm doing it at the moment, but the best way to do this is to develop on the Sharepoint server and reference dlls directly in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\ISAPI. I don't know why the previous guy thinks it is impossible but he is wrong for sure.

Good luck

What he means is that you can use the Assembly and object model when you are able to deploy the application on the server. If you are writing a client application that does not have SharePoint installed then the only option is to use web services. So the object model is best suited to admin/config type applications.

I know what exactly he means, also that's why I tell him to COPY the dll over from the deployment server with sharepoint to your own PC w/o sharepoint and simply use the dll, you don't need to have sharepoint installed on your pc, all you need is a microsoft.sharepoint.dll.

Here is the problems that I am experiencing with this solution. I have ALL the dlls from the Sharepoint server copied to my local dev box and I registered them with the GAC using the gacutil included with the .Net sdk. With this solution I can compile and build solutions that automatically add 'using Microsoft.Sharepoint;' to the solution (such as using the workflow templates), but if I try to create a new project from scratch and try to add the reference to the Microsoft.Sharepoint.dll, I can't do it. Am I missing a step

BTW, I am using Vista Business x32 and VS 2005 Pro.
