Hi Hassan,

The installation for B3 is very similar to B2. My suggestion is to download the B2 framework as well and use the documentation found in that package. It is on our list to provide custom installation instructions for B3 as well, but for now B2 should get you 99% of the way there.

You might also want to try the WSP solution as that will install everything for you.

Hello Eric,

Thanks a lot for help. Is B2 framework compatible with Sharepoint 2013 ?

Nov 27, 2013 at 12:49 AM

Yes to both.
B2 for 2013:

And the wsp itself is for 2013 and includes both B2 and B3:

Hello Eric,

Thanks for the quick response. I am trying to install WSP solution but I am unable to activate it. The activate button is greyed and showing following tooltip. I have full rights on sharepoint server also I've access to back end servers too. Can you guide me troubleshooting steps for this issue ?

Thank you,

Ok, figured out. It requires me to enable Sandbox service from system settings in sharepoint. After enabling the service I am able to activate it

Yup, that service can cause problems.

Word is that this service is going away or otherwise being scaled down in SP2013. This is in regards to sandboxed solutions being deprecated in SP2013, but then that was updated to say that sandboxed solutions that are only declarative will be allowed. Custom code is just being deprecated. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
