SharePoint .NET 3.5 auto-configuration – escape the manual overhead!

I have previously talked about how you manually can configure your SharePoint environment to enable .NET 3.5. My approach were to always do this manually, but it seems that there’s a sweet feature for this purpose created, automating this process.

As a tip from Jeremy Thake, I’m posting the link to a CodePlex project called “Features” which obviously have a feature that deals with configuring your web application without any manual steps like modifying xml snippets in web.config.

Even though the manual steps I’ve provided in my blogpost only takes about 1-2 minutes to perform, this approach eliminates the human facor – which often is the cause to a lot of headaches!

Thanks for the tip Jeremy, and hope everyone else will find this interesting aswell!

More on .NET 3.5 to come later.
