The Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, also known as the Fab40, is a set of forty different templates that can be used within a SharePoint environment.

These templates are good to use as a starter when creating new SharePoint sites or custom solutions and I recommend that you install them into your test or development environment. But the download contains 40 different .wsp and .stp files which has to be installed one at a time; either using STSADM or using the web interface.

Why not using a script?

And here is one…

   1:  @SET STSADM="c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\bin\stsadm"
   3:  for %%f in (*.wsp) do %STSADM% -o addsolution -filename %%f
   5:  for %%f in (*.wsp) do %STSADM% -o deploysolution -allowgacdeployment -immediate -name %%f
   7:  for %%f in (*.stp) do %STSADM% -o addtemplate -filename %%f -title %%f
   9:  pause

.csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: consolas, “Courier New”, courier, monospace; background-color: #ffffff; /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; overflow-x:visible;border:0px} .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; } .csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; } .csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; } .csharpcode .html { color: #800000; } .csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; } .csharpcode .alt { background-color: #f4f4f4; width: 100%; margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; } Just create a .bat (or .cmd) file and copy the text from above and save the file.

Open up a command prompt and run the file and wait for the script to finish.
