SharePoint 2013 version

Jan 5, 2013 at 2:25 PM

I've compiled SPWakeUp3 using the RTM SharePoint 2013 DLLs; a copy is available from!1171

Would you mind letting me know what DDLs you needed to replace to get this to work? I don't think I trust a random exe compiled and shared via skydrive. I'd prefer to compile the exe myself from the source provided here with the necessary DLLs.

Thank you

The only thing you need to change is to remove the reference to the original Microsoft.SharePoint.dll file and replace it with the one from SharePoint 2013 and recompile. There are however 2 microsoft.SharePoint.dll files on a SharePoint 2013 computer, you want the one from:

C:\program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI

Take a copy of the dll, and put it into the solution folder somewhere, then add a reference to it in the project replacing the original reference, then recompile and you should be good to go. Hopefully it should be a binary match for mine!

Note that I used VS 2010, not VS 2012, I've not tried upgrading the project into VS 2012 yet.

I was able to replace the dll (I also needed Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.dll) and got the file to compile in VS 2012.

I know the difference is because of the VS versions but here are the MD5 hashes for the 3.0a version hosted here on codeplex. The one you compiled in VS 2010, and the one I compiled in VS 2012

SPWakeup3_2013 (VS 2010)
SPWakeup3_2013 (VS 2012)

My only problem now is even with valid login credentials (I can log into the site with the same credentials) I get a 401 unauthorized error for every URL.

I am not a developer and did the bare minimum to get the solution working with VS 2010 and cannot comment on what would be required for it to work with VS 2012 (perhaps the SPWakeup3 team could produce a new official version?)
The original SPWakeup3 appears to have been compiled against the 2007 Microsoft.SharePoint.dll.

As far as testing the newly compiled version of SPWakeup3, are you performing your tests on the server console and logging into the site (presumably using IE) on the server console as well? If you're testing the SPWakeup3 exe on the server console but logging into the site from another PC, you might be hitting an issue on the server with the loopback check. See for information about disabling the loopback check and then try again.

I've just compiled a version using VS 2012. I opened the solution in VS2012 and allowed the conversion to complete, then replaced the reference to Microsoft.SharePoint.dll with one pointing to the SharePoint 2013 version. I then changed the version of .NET that the solution would be targeted against and built the solution.

The version I got (the debug build) was 18kb.

I've just run it on a test SharePoint 2013 farm and it appears to work correctly.

Thank you for the link to the article I did find that link elsewhere in the forum and am taking steps to test if that fix will work for me. The Method 1 solution was not clear about the "host names for the sites that are on the local computer". Are they asking for or hostname of the machine sharepoint-server? I tried both with the same result. I also tried with a wildcard* and had the same result. I am going to test disabling the check but will need to schedule a reboot for the server.

The host name is the base URL of the web application without any protocol information, so if the site is accessible on then the host name would simply be:

After adding the registry value with my hostname and restarting the iis admin service I still get the same 401 error. I tried adding the disableloopbackcheck registry value and restarted the web server and now get "Error getting subwebs" along with error 401.

Thanks for you help but I think I'll try to do this another way.

Thanks so much @LittleAndy - your SPWakeup_2013.exe is working nicely on my upgraded SharePoint 2013 RTM server.

Are there plans to make this an official download for this project?

PS: I love this project - it's so simple and elegant compared to any other alternative I've seen/tried.
