I'm trying to install SharePoint Server 2010 on my Windows 7 x64 environment for development. I'm using the RTM .iso from MSDN. When I try to install, I get an error that my environment isn't supported and that I need to install it on Windows Server 2008. It was my understanding (from many sources, including Microsoft), that SharePoint 2010 would support installation on Windows 7. Has this support been dropped? Are there installation instructions for installing on Windows 7 in a way other that what is expected?
Have you followed these installation steps?
