Visual Studio :: After 2010 Conversion From 2008 Pages Won't Display In Browser Correctly
Sep 29, 2010
I just upgraded to 2010 and converted my VS 2008 ASP.NET web application. There were no conversion errors and everything displays in the Design mode correctly but when I try to View in Browser or debug the site won't display. I just get a blank page untitled page displayed.
When I open an older project in vs 2010, the Visual Studio Conversion Wizard welcome dialog box will appear, but after I uncheck the option "Do the same for all webs targeting an older .Net framework this solution", the Visual Studio Conversion Wizard will never display again, now I hope the Visual Studio Conversion Wizard welcome dialog can appear when I open an older project, how can i do?
I have downloaded a project from the internet called the SMS Source example. I wanted to open this project in VS2010, so a conversion wizard has popped up prompting for the conversion. But it has errors in converting.
my problem doesn't involve any programming per se but it involves the interface of VWD so I hope I'm posting in the correct space. Anyways, most of the time when I scroll over something in VWD whether it be something in the Getting Started box or an option from one of the menu bar items a full-colored block will cover it and won't go away. This doesn't seem to be hurting anything but it is quite the annoyance. Has anyone else had this problem? How can I fix this? This does seem specific to VWD and no other application on my PC.
i have created a web project and i want to test it.when i click on debug or click on default page to view on browser , ASP.NET Web Development Server Works but nothing appear in my web browser . even i used internal browser ofVisual Studio 2008 but it shows this message :
I chose the option to create a new ASP.NET Web Application (C#) project using VWD 2010 EXPRESS. Normally I choose the create an empty web site option. Anyways, It seems that everytime I needed to make a change in code behind that I would have to click save, then debug>build for the changes to take effect. This was working fine for three days, now all of a sudden it has stopped working. It doesnt seem to rebuild when I click build...though the output message says it succeeded.
I have even removed entire codeblocks from the codbehind (one that populated a dropdown), yet the drop down is still populated when the page is previewed (I have cleared the browser cache as well!). Also, I have tried to set Label1.text to various values and that does show either, like its not in the code.Is there a bug in VWD, or is there a setting I could have clicked unknowingly? I am gettingsome strange errors as well. For example, I am getting object reference not set to an instance of an object errors and the line it points to is a totally empty line
I'm using a 64bit dll (system.data.sqlite) in an Asp.net MVC app in VS 2010. The application runs and debugs fine, but all the aspx and ascx pages show errors when editing in Visual Studio 2010 and intellisense doesn't work. This is a VS2010 regression bug. Does anyone have a work around? (OR)Does anyone know of a free, reliable, production ready embeddable database that doesn't cause a 32/64 bit problem?More DetailsApparently this worked in Visual Studio 2008 and this has been is a known regression bug in Visual Studio 2010 for several months. I don't want to revert to VS 2008 and I don't want to debug in 32 bit mode.
I have web application that needs to debug and deploy as a 64 bit mode because it uses uses some unmanaged 64 bit dll's like system.data.sqlite. Also, I prefer debugging in 64 bit mode because it allows us to test some high memory use cases. After a lot of fiddling, Asp.net will deploy and run just fine. However all the aspx and ascx pages show errors and intellisense doesn't work when editing them in Visual Studio 2010. Apparently this worked in Visual Studio 2008 and this has been is a known problem in Visual Studio 2010 for months. I don't want to revert to VS 2008. There was a work around posted on SO here but it didn't work in my tests, limits debugging to 32bit mode, and also feels a bit hacky (I think it only works for VS Express style websites). Has anyone made this work in a web application or have a better work around?For those who are interested Visual Studio 2010 has two other problems with 64bit dlls that I have managed to work around.
Problem 1 - Cassini: Cassini can only debug in 32 bit modeSolution 1 - CassiniDev or Localhost: Debug using localhost or compile CassiniDev (an opensoure variant of cassini) in 64bit mode. I like the zero config simplicity of debugging a new web app with cassini so I used CassiniDev. You just stick the dlls in C:Program Files (x86)Common Filesmicrosoft sharedDevServer10.0 and it works (I recommended making a backup of the Cassini version you will be over writing).Problem 2 - MSTest: By default unit tests run with MSTest fail to load 64bit dlls.Solution 2 - AnyCPU & 64bit host process Instructions here, set local.testsettings to AnyCPU & 64bit host processI'm starting to think the whole setup is too little hacky and I'm on the verge of giving up and restructuring my application to not use a 64bit dll. I'm also really disappointed that Visual Studio 2010 caused all these problems. Can somebody make MS fix the regression bug they created?
My existing system has Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. But Microsoft web installer for Webmatrix has made Wematrix Launch ribbon menu pointing to Visual Studio 2008. How could I make Webmatrix point to Visual Web Express 2010. To make use of IntelliSense and the debugger, I have to manually launch Visual Web Developer 2010 Express.
I'm used to working with VS 2008 and toggling bookmarks in aspx pages was very useful, however in VS 2010 I'm unable to toggle bookmarks using the CTRL + K + K or the actual "Toggle bookmark" button from the bookmarks tool. Is there an option to enable this on the ASPX page, it works everywhere else though.
I am not sure this is the right place to ask.I am using Visual Web Developer 2010 Express, and have loaded an existing project.I have an image folder, and in the folder I have some images (.png)I need to find all of the ASP.NET pages which uses one of this image,but had no luck. There are hundreds of ASPX, ASPX.vb pages to search...IS THERE A WAY TO SEARCH WHICH ASPX or ASPX.VB pages are using a image file?For example,If I have C:TESTIMAGESTEST.PNG file,I want every file in the project pages which includes:
I'd like to know if I can install both 2008 and 2010 of VWD and use SSEE2008 without ANY difficulties. I need to support some existing sites in 2008 and want to be sure that I can still do that if I load 2010.
