Configuration :: Apps Automatically Using Machine.config

Oct 31, 2010

I have connection strings info in web.config. I thought that if this were the case, machine.config would be ignored. But, everytime the connection string in web.con is different than the connection string in maching.con, I get error. The connection name 'aspnetdbConnectionString' was not found in the applications configuration or the connection string is empty. Is there something I can check or change to get the app to ignore the machine.config when web.config connection string is listed.

Storing Configuration Data In .NET Than The Web/machine Config?

Jun 24, 2010

We have a large multi tenanted website which requires thousands of lines of web.config to support it. As the system grows we are finding it more and more difficult to manage this configuration file.The system currently in place uses XSLT to generate the config but this solution seems to involve a lot of duplicated code (we have 12 deployment environments).

I am leaning towards putting the configuration data in the db so we can be sure that it's deployed with the application and that our release notes don't require the IT guys messing around with XML

What are better solutions we could use?

Configuration :: Unable To Access Connection String In Machine.config

Nov 14, 2010

I have a Windows Service I have developed in Visual Studio 2005 (C#).

It accesses a database using a connection string in machine.config.

On my Windows XP Pro 32bit (SP3) machine, it works correctly.

On my new Windows 7 Pro 64bit machine, it throws "object not set to an instance of an object" when it gets to the line where it's trying use the connection string.

This is the 'object' which is not set in Windows 7:


The machine.config has the same connection string set up on both machines.

A .Net 2 website transferred to the Windows 7 machine has no problem accessing the same connection string.

I have tried a bunch of different permissions on the machine.config and its containing folders, and setting the service to log in as Admin, but I don't know exactly what permissions are required.

IIS Configuration :: Web Config Error - It Could However Be Viewed By Browsers Running On Local Server Machine

Jun 5, 2013

When I run my application I got this error

Server Error in '/POD/POMLNT' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->
<customErrors mode="Off"/>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
What is it means , and how can i fix it ?

Php - Communication Of Two Apps On The Same Machine?

Oct 15, 2010

I have an ASP.NET app running on a webserver. A third party is created another app in PHP which needs to send data to my app for processing. Initially it was assumed that the PHP app would be deployed elsewhere so we agreed that the communication would occur over the internet via HTTP (over SSL). My app would simply use a generic handler (ashx) file to recieve the data and send confirmation back.

Now it seems that the PHP app might be deployed on the same machine as my app. I like the fact that using HTTP (as opposed to say direct database access), the PHP app needs to know nothing at all about how my app works. But using the public internet seems silly for communication between two apps on the same machine. If the PHP app simply used a localhost address, would this ensure that all the data stays within the machine? Is there a better way to do this?

Visual Studio :: Errors In Root Machine.config And Web.config After 2010 Installation

I just installed VS2010 and opened the root machine.config and web.config files for review and I found some errors. In machine.config, the following line has errors in both entries for <Microsoft.VisualStudio.Diagnostics.ServiceModelSink.Behavior>. When I hover the cursor over them I get a tooltip text which displays: "The element 'endpointBehaviors' has invalid child element 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Diagnostics.ServiceModelSink.Behavior'. List of possible elements expected: '...(list of options here)...'. The same problem happens for the second appereance in tag <serviceBehaviors>.


In web.config, there is a tag called <protocols> that has an error with a tooltip text that says "The element 'system.web' has invalid child element 'protocols'. List of possible elements expected: '...(list of options here)...'.

Machine.config File Know About Web.config?

Feb 16, 2010

It is known that we use web.config file to override the setting of machine.config file.

a) how come machine.config file knows that only changes made in web.config file are to be overwritten. I mean to say, if I use some other name for the config file say xyz.config, will it be able to work?

b) How does machine.config file know about web.config? Is there any link mentioned inside the machine.config file for that?

Why Can't Add Section To Machine.config

Mar 31, 2011

I would like to add this section to my machine.config in exactly the same way many articles and microsoft are suggesting:

<add name = [URL]/>
<add name = "*" maxconnection = "2" />

[URL] As soon as I do it though, I get this exception when trying to hit a page hosted on the IIS on the same machine: Parser Error Message: Unrecognized configuration section Source Error:

Line 9: settings that differ from their defaults.
Line 10: --><configuration>
Line 11: <>
Line 12: <connectionManagement>
Line 13: <add address="*" maxconnection="24" />

Source File: C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFramework64v2.0.50727Configmachine.config Line: 11 Where is the problem and how can I modify the machine.config so that I can finally control the maxconnection value?

Machine.config And Processmodel With IIS Express

Jan 21, 2011

I'm wondering if modifying processModel in machine.config will have any effect on an IIS express integrated mode application? I'm trying to modify the maxWorkerThreads to at least 100 because I was comparing normal IIS vs IIS express on windows 7 using WCAT to see if scott was correct when he said IIS express has no connection limits. Although IIS express does show 30+ requests executing at the same time against the normal IIS limit of 10 the actual total requests per seconds are comparable between both and IIS express has much higher cpu usage and on average 70 requests queued vs 0 requests waiting for normal IIS! And the CPU is only about 70% on an quad core i7. surely there is room for optimization? additional details. I have uploaded the WCAT results run on windows 7, same script, to [URL]

IIS Express has slighter higher requests per second, and total transactions served than normal IIS. IIS Express is executing up to 50 requests at a time, while normal IIS on windows 7 is limited to 10 as designed. IIS express is using 30% higher cpu, probably because of additional requests it handles at a time. But on average Express requests take much longer to complete. see Request Execution Time performance counter and time analysis (first and last byte). Express is only able to beat IIS in total requests served because it can handle more requests at a time!

Could the fact that IIS express is printing each request to command line window even with trace set none be slowing it down. I also noticed a lot of additional modules registered in IIS express applicationhost.config that are not in IIS applicationhost.config. Could then extra debugging/tracing modules be causing the problem. I notice IIS express does not have FileCache and HTTPCache modules. Could that be why? I'm hoping experts can clarify how these results are possible if IIS express is not limited.

Visual Studio :: 4 Doesn't See Machine.config

Mar 23, 2010

I have switched over from VS2008 to VS10 (.Net4) and I program in Silverlight. But this problem isn't related to the Silverlight but more so to ASP.Net and that's why I bring it up here. My problem is if I create a SL or even a plain ASP.Net Web app, and I go to Project|ASP Configuration and click on security I get error that it can't find the database. After lots of testing, it turns out if there is no connection string with the name "LocalSqlServe" in my web.config, it does not find Machine.Config in the .Net Framework to get it's default. It also happens at runtime and not just in VS. So, my machine ASP.Net can't find machine.config file. I'm running Vista 32.

Is Normal That None Of The .net Framework Versions Contain A Machine.config File

<processModel maxWorkerThreads="20" maxIoThreads="20" ... />

Is it normal that none of the .net framework versions contain a machine.config file that contains the above settings?

Two Machine.config Files On Server - Which One To Edit And Verify They Are Being Used?

Jul 15, 2010

I need to do some performance tuning and need to modify the following settings: processModel, httpRuntime, and connectionManagement. Simple enough I suppose, but I'm not sure which of the two machine.config files to edit, or do I edit both? Framework v2.0.50727CONFIGmachine.config Framework64 v2.0.50727CONFIGmachine.config

As a follow up question, how do I verify that the settings have been applied? I should mention that the server is running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise (64-bit) with IIS 6.0 (64-bit) and MSSQL Server Enterprise 2005 (64-bit).

afeter the deploy, I have only the web.config and the connection string for the entity datamodel....itīs run ok, read/write the data on the DB.

There arenīt error or messager but not read/write the data in the MyApp project.

all run on the iis 7

Can I put a entity in the MyWeb and read it in another project (myApp)?

ps: for connect to DB I use not the c# code:

var db=from x in AccessDB.Example select x;

C# - Automatically Inserting New Fields In A Web.config File?

But where it needs to be used, there aren't these thre fields in the web.config (this was expected, I've just added by hand for tests and developing).

How do I check the existance of fields in web.config, and in case of not finding it, how do I add it permanently to the web.config ?

Installation :: Access Denied To Machine.config - Windows 7 Development Environment

I have just ported my VS2008 development environment to a new computer running Windows 7. One roadblock I'm having is that when I edit machine.config in VS2008, I cannot save it back to its location - I get an error saying Access Denied. I am logged in as Administrator and have tried to set myself up as owner but the crazy security rules in Windows 7 are frustrating this operation. (I could do this on my previous system - VS2008 running XP.) I set the Administrators permissions to Full Control and made this file's owner Administrators (vs the previous SYSTEM)
