Access Checker 2010

Deploying the solution

Download the SharePoint solution file (.wsp).
Use PowerShell or STSADM to install the solution into the farm.
Use PowerShell, STSADM, or Central Administration to deploy the solution.

The solution has TWO features, which can be used in whatever combination you like...

Web Application Feature: Access Checker (Site Settings)
This will add two links to the Site Settings page in the Users and Permissions section. One link is "Check User Access", and will show a treeview of the user's access. The other link is "View Permission Inheritence" and will show a treeview indicating whether the content inherits permissions or breaks permission inheritance.

Site Collection Feature: Access Checker Web Part
This will add the Access Checker web part, which can be included in any page of your own choosing.

Building the solution

The Access Checker 2010 solution is a Visual Studio 2010 solution with a single SharePoint project using C#.
You will need Visual Studio 2010 installed. To use SharePoint project templates, Visual Studio requires that SharePoint be installed locally. SharePoint 2010 can be installed on Windows 7 (though I personally don't recommend it), or on Windows Server 2003 or above.
Upon opening the solution, configure the URL for deployment by opening the Properties window (tab) for the Project, and adjusting the Site URL. This address is used any time you use the Deploy command.
