Job Submission Sample Download

SharePoint 2007

The download sample that accompanies this developer guide, the Excel Services and Excel 2007 Windows Compute Cluster Server Job Submission Sample and its supporting files (OfficeExcelServicesECSCCSSamples.exe), demonstrates how you can use a compute cluster to improve workbook performance when running a parametric sweep.

The sample gives users the ability to schedule or immediately submit Microsoft Office Excel 2007 workbooks to a server running Windows Compute Cluster Server (CCS) 2003. Using this sample, large and long-running workbook calculations can be offloaded to a compute cluster. This makes it possible to take advantage of the parallel computing and high availability of a compute cluster to deliver results faster and more reliably than by calculating workbooks on a single desktop computer.

NoteNote:

If you have installed Visual Studio on a drive other than the C drive, you must modify the path to gacutil.exe in the PostEvents.bat file. The PostEvents.bat file is included in the sample download.

All server names in the projects and solutions point to localhost. To test any changes made in the solution, use the installers for their respective project/codebase. This enables the installation process to establish the configuration of the environment.

When you open the solution for the first time, you might get an initial message that a required DLL is missing from the global assembly cache. This message will only appear before the first build, and is not displayed after you build the solution for the first time.
