Managing Visual Studio Projects For A Website And Custom Usercontrols?

Aug 26, 2010

I have one main project for the cms we are using for our website. I have also created usercontrols to include in the site, but I think I would like to keep these in a separate project and just reference them in the main project. Is this a best practice and how would I do this?

Visual Studio :: Old Projects Not Showing Up In The Start Page Recent Projects List?

Jan 31, 2011

I just moved to a new PC and installed VS 2010. I copied all of my websites over from the old machine and now when I open the old websites on the new machine, they do not show up in my recent projects list on the start page. New websites that I make do show up there but the old ones do not. This is very inconvenient. Is there a way to make old projects that I open show up in the list?

This brings up another question. Is there a way to make a shortcut that will open VS2010 up with a website already loaded so that I don't have to go through the file open dialog every time?

Visual Studio :: Can Prevent Projects From Being Referenced By Other Projects

Jun 7, 2010

I have a multi-tiered application. I would like to publish the class libraries to UI developers to let them add to their web or windows projects to add all the functionality.

I would like to restrict access so only a certain project can be referenced. The reason is so that they do not refer to the data access layer directly and start making calls that would bypass the business logic built into the business tier.

UI->>Business Logic->>Data Access

So in other words, BL and DA are deployed as compiled assemblies. BL references DA. UI will reference BL, but I would like to strictly prevent any other project from referencing DA directly.

Security :: Managing Users And Roles Across Different Projects In A Solution?

May 27, 2010

Initially, in my solution I had one project, and had set up all that is required for security, and that includes users and roles and access rules, etc. All of that was and still is working fine.

Now I added another project to my solution, and my first project points to pages in the second project.

The problem is that it seems like the users and roles are not being transferred accross projects. Not sure if I am explaining my problem correctly...if not, feel free to ask...

Its my first time trying to manage users and roles accross projects within a solution.

Visual Studio :: Cannot Open Web Projects Configured To Use IIS

Jun 23, 2010

I constant get the following error when I try to load existing web project in Visual studio

"The Web Application Project is configured to use IIS. To access Web sites on the local IIS Web server, you must run Visual Studio under an Administrator account."

It started happening after I had to re-install IIS because of metabase corruption. I have already tried following

1. create and re-create application in IIS
2. register aspnet using aspnet_regiis
3. I am already member of adminstrators group I also added aspnet to administrator group, no luck
4. I have tried repairing Visual studio 2008 and still same issue appears

I am using XP SP3, Visual Studio 2008 Team System and IIS 5.1. I have Visual Studio 2005, Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 installed on my machine.

Nov 16, 2010

I know that I can add more than one project to a solution, but I have a load of pre-developed projects that I want to add and rather than going

I wondered if there was an easier way to add lots of projects at once.

Visual Studio ::2003 Not Showing Web Projects?

Jul 22, 2010

I recently got a new PC and had all my development tools installed/configured, including Visual Studio 2003 (for support of older apps) and IIS. When working on web projects in the past, I would open the project via File->Open->Project from Web.The defaultURL is http://localhost, as it was on my old PC. When I click OK, no web projects are showing, even though I've setup a few web projects in IIS. To set these up, I moved the project to c:inetpubwwwroot<project name>, then go into IIS and change the folder to an app, and select 1.1 under the tab. I've also made sure the Frontpage server extensions are installed.I can open the project by using File->Open->Project, but I get "Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web server. You do not have permissions to debug the server".I found several articles online addressing this and have made all suggested changes but so far nothing has worked.I feel that if I can get the project to show/open as a web project it will resolve this issue as well.

Visual Studio :: Sharing Settings Between Projects / Console App And WPF App

Oct 20, 2010

I'm trying to share settings between two projects: a console app and a WPF app. The WPF app only exists to view and change those settings.

So in my console app, I wrote the following class...


My WPF app has a reference to the console application, so it can access the members of this Settings class.

So you'd think that if I use the WPF app to change one of these settings, then the next time I run the console app that changed setting would be available, but that is not the case. I'll change the masUserID setting from Bill to Ted, for example, but when I launch the console app it shows the setting is still Bill. If I run the WPF app, it's set to Ted.

Visual Studio :: Web.config Transforms For Web Site Projects

Apr 8, 2010

Does anyone no why web.config transforms are not available for Web Site Projects in VS2010. I thought that Web Site Projects where once introduced as the successor of Web Application Projects. But now the lack the deployment feature which I would really like to use.

Maybe someone knows a workaround, without having to convert 70 websites? Converting to Web Application Projects isn't a real option because I use Table Profile Provider by Hao Kong, which doesn't work with this type of project.

C# - Visual Studio 2010: How To Enforce Build Order Of Projects In A Solution

Sep 6, 2010

I had no problem with this in Visual Studio 2008 but it seems that VS 2010 is having an issue, and I'm betting it's probably me.I have a solution with an ASP.NET Web Site Project and a few C# projects (BLL, DAL, Tests in NUnit). I have configured the build process for the test project to automatically run NUnit to run the tests. I would like to ensure that the BLL and DAL projects build before the test project so that the tests will run against the latest compiled version (yes, I know I could do this all in one project, but I'm choosing not to -- please bear with me :) )

So, I set the dependencies of the Test project to include the BLL, DAL, and Web Application projects, and the build order shows BLL, DAL, Web Application, and then Tests. However, I noticed that the BLL doesn't actually build when I build the Test project.Any idea what this could be or any option I might be missing to force the other projects to build when I build the Test project?

Visual Studio :: Sharing A Solution File - Projects Settings/Configurations Maintenance?

Sep 1, 2010

I am using VS2005 and I have a solution file (.SLN) which has 8 projects. I moved the solution file to a different path on a shared folder to have better organization of my projects and to allow access to the solution/projects from any computer on the network. After that, I edited the .SLN file so that the path of the projects in the solution file are correct (all on shared folders).

After that, I opened the .SLN and everything seemd to be working fine. However, I notcied that the "Start Options" of the website part of the solution file is missing the "Start Options", ie, the Start Options are reset to default values. I think also, but not sure, some other settings of the Solution/Projects have been reset.


1. Where the Web Site "Start Options" are stored ?

2. How I can maintain the Start Options and similar settings if the .SLN file is moved or opened from different computers on the network ?

3. I am not using an team development tools, only plain (vanilla) VS 2005 Prof. Edition. Is it possible to have 2 or more developers work on the same solution/projects (shared on the network), if both developers will coordinate manually simultanous access to the porject files/resources/source code ?

Visual Studio :: Unable To Debug VB Web Projects On Local Machine / Security Exception Error

Dec 21, 2010

Basically what I am trying to do is have my webpage project folder located directly on my local machine (ex. Local #1). Our database is located on a server (ex. Server #1) . I am building my web applications on my local machine and then trying to debug them in Visual Studio 2008. Only every single time I click to debug my project I get a "Security Exception" error that looks something like the following...

"Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application's trust level in the configuration file.

Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Web.AspNetHostingPermission, System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed."

I'm somewhat leaning towards the fact that I need to connect to the database to pull information from it and I don't have the proper permissions is the reason why this is happening but I've also read that it can be something that deals with improper configuration of my Web.Config file (i.e. I do not have something enabled).

Note #1: A co-worker of mine is having the same problem if he tries to put the project locally and then debug it. He has full administrative access to the DB and everything else.

Custom Server Controls :: Custom Control Image Not Rendering In Visual Studio Design Mode

Apr 25, 2010

I have a simple HttpHandler that generates a dynamic image based on query string parameters and a custom web control that renders an image tag pointing to the handler as its 'src' attribute. All works fine when run in the web server, but at design timethe control displays as the "missing image" icon (red x in a box). The handler is registered in the web.config with a ".ashx" extension. The RenderContents method in the control looks like this:

output.AddAttribute("src", ResolveUrl(string.Format("~/Sparklines.SparkHandler.ashx?stype=pm&w={0}&h={1}&sv={2}&ev={3}&cv={4}&sc={5}&ec={6}&mc={7}&gs={8}",

Visual Studio :: Moving Projects Between 32-bit Windows XP Pro And 64-bit Windows 7?

Apr 28, 2010

When I am working on projects I like to take my files back and forth between two machines.The machine at my office is running Windows XP Pro 32-bit.My home pc is brand new and running Windows 7 64-bit.I have not yet installed Visual Studio 2008 on the new home pc.My projects usually consist of a web site in and C# often with a SQL Server 2008 Express Edition database backend.I am using Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition (yes, I know I need to upgrade soon).

Before I received the new computer I was simply copying what I did at one machine onto a USB drive, taking it the other machine and overwriting the files that were previously there. Is it feasible to continue moving project files back and forth between computers now that one machine is running a 32-bit OS and one is running a 64-bit OS?

Visual Studio 2008 - Website Running In IIS - Point The Website To Use Cassini?

Feb 7, 2010

My client gave me this web solution, in it various projects, and the problematic project (for me) is the Web Site.

I've copied the code to test web server (2008) and installed VS 2008 so I could step through the code on the server due to some weirdness.

Anyhow, when I open the solution locally on my personal computer, it runs on Cassini [URL] because I'm not on a server OS. However, when I run the app on the web server, when I hit F5, it runs oh [URL].

When I'm running the code on the server, how do I point the web site to use Cassini?
