SharePoint 2010 Tipps for creating a Console App

If you want to create a console app which access the object client model of SharePoint, for example to create lists, fill lists or get some date you should pay attention to some useful tipps.

You should:

  • add the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll
  • use .Net Framework 3.5
  • make it as x64 bit application, otherwise it will not find the SPSite

I think that should help, especially the last point, which i always forget and when the error occurs, i remember it sooner or later 🙂
