• Copy to your SharePoint server and double click the Pentalogic.SharePoint.PivotPoint.msi file to start installation

  • Follow the prompts

Installer - Screen 1

  • You have a choice to register the Web Part with SharePoint Automatically or Manually

Installation - Automatically or Manually using STSADM


If you are running the install routine on a SharePoint server with a single Web Front End (WFE) then the web part can be registered automatically.

If you are running WSSv2 or SharePoint 2003 then a CAB web part file will be installed in the GAC.

If you are running WSSv3 or SharePoint 2007 then a WSP web part file will be installed in the BIN directory.

If you are using a farm with multiple WFE's, require PivotPoint to be able to use 3rd party or internally developed custom field features that are installed into the GAC or have other specialised installation requirements you should chose the manual option.


CAB and WSP web part files can be found in the Web Part Files directory and these can be installed Manually as detailed here.

  • Removing the PivotPoint Web Part

Firstly delete the web part from any pages you have added it to.

Note - in order to delete a web part you have to be editing the Shared view of a page and select Delete, not Close.

Close does not delete a web part, it just hides it from view.

From the Add or Remove Programs screen find the Pentalogic - PivotPoint Web Part entry and select Remove

If you installed the Web Part onto SharePoint manually then you will also have to remove it manually.
