Podcast with WSS 3.0

Aug 31, 2008 at 8:35 PM
   The Podcast Kit for Sharepoint features error on a WSS 3.0 installation with the following errors; 

"IS Content Query Webparts Feature"  Failed to instantiate file "XSL Style Sheets/CbqRss.xsl" from module "RssXslFiles": The specified list does not exist.

"PKS User Interface"    Failed to instantiate file "PKSPodcasters.xsl" from module "PKSAcceleratorXSLStyleSheets": The specified list does not exist.

Both files exist, are the failures rooted in the ContentQueryWebpart features using out-of-box MOSS functionality?

Hi dhollas, you are correct. The Podcasting Kit for SharePoint requires SharePoint Server 2007 and will not deploy or work on WSS 3.0 only. You can download a trial version of MOSS 2007 at this location if you'd like to try it out(http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=2e6e5a9c-ebf6-4f7f-8467-f4de6bd6b831&displaylang=en for x86; http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=3015FDE4-85F6-4CBC-812D-55701FBFB563&displaylang=en for x64).

The Content By Query API is only present in SharePoint Server 2007, and the PKS is using it extensively to query the PKS content type anddisplay the Podcast grid views, to override the RSS for the Zune feature etc...
