How To Visual Studio Find Web Services On The Local Machine

Jan 3, 2010

When adding a new web reference, one of the options that visual studio gives you is to search for web services on the local machine (The exact option name is "Web services on the local machine").

My question is, how does Visual Studio find the web services on the local machine? The local website that contains the service doesn't contain a .disco file.

I tried to use fiddler but got nothing (visual studio didn't make any requests to the local web server). Does visual studio scan the default website for files with the extension .asmx?

Visual Studio :: Error While Enumerating Services On Local Machine?

Jun 30, 2010

This error never happens before in my machine since 7 months of using it. [:(]

"There was an error while enumerating services on local machine: Active Directory Services cannot find the web server. A possible cause for this is an incompatibility between versions of Internet Information Server (IIS) on the client and the server. Another possible cause is that IIS is not installed on the local machine, or the user identity under which you are running may not have permissions to view websites on this machine. To view websites on this machine, make sure that you run Visual Studio as administrator. On Windows Vista computers with IIS installed, make sure that IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility feature is enabled."

I'm trying to add back a webservice (localhost) after deletion. And suddenly I'm getting the above error.[:(]

The error's suggested tip is to install IIS but I did not install IIS since then in my machine because VS2010 built-in server do just fine. Should I install IIS?

I also found this helpful tips but nothing works. [:(]

* Run Visual Studio with elevated administrator permissions
* Be a member of the "Administrators" group on the local machine
* Right-click the Visual Studio icon and select the "Run as administrator" option from the context menu.

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.

Way To Find Out If Request Came From Local Machine?

Jul 18, 2010

I've built an ASP.NET application that's using Forms Authentication. In our hosting account control panel, I set up an automated task that requests a web page once per week. When the page loads, a number of emails are sent out.I'd just like to know if there's any way to determine in the code-behind if the request is coming from the local machine (as with Windows authentication). Using a separate web.config file in the page sub-directory with Windows authentication mode doesn't work.

Shut Down Web Services Launched By Visual Studio?

Jul 14, 2010

I have a solution with about 10 web services and one web site that calls them. All the services have to launch when I click "start debugging", which is necessary and good. When I stop debugging the services are still running. I can right click on each of them in the system tray to shut them down, or I can shut down Visual Studio and they get shut down automatically. Is there a better way?

I found this SO post which says how to not start the services in the first place, but I want the services to launch (and even want them to stay running more often than not.)

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.

Success Using Apple Mac OS 10.6 And Parallels 5 For A Visual Studio Dev Machine?

Mar 19, 2010

I grew up using Windows and switched to OSX as a Computer Science major in College. I've recently started my first real software developer job, and have a ThinkPad and Windows XP for developing ASP.NET / MS SQL applications (Visual Studio 2008). Question:Basically, I am wondering if any developers out there have had real success creating ASP.NET applications on a Mac using a VM? I've been fighting with Parallels 5 all week and finally have Windows 7 and VS 2008 running but my hot-keys are all screwed up. Is it worth the work to keep beating this thing into submission? Should I give up? Should I give Mono a try instead

I basically want to transfer a file from the client to the file storage server without actual login to the server so that the client cannot access the storage location on the server directly.

Object Data Source With Reporting Services In Visual Studio?

Oct 12, 2010

I'm working on a site where we want to include a pie chart on a page. Right now I'm working on implementing that through Reporting Services (RDLC file) with an object data source.The SelectMethod of my object data source is a method that returns a list of business objects; lets say a List<Alpha> and Alpha has a sub object Beta with a Name property. In my report definition I have set the Category groups to be: =Fields!Beta.Value.Name this means that Alpha.Beta.Name are my pie slices. I got the following error:

An error has occurred during report processing. The Group expression for the rouping 'chart1_CategoryGroup1' contains an error: Object variable or With block variable not set.I was able to confirm this is because Beta is nullable and was able to fix the issue by updating the object Alpha to return a new Beta() if the Beta property is null. This solution is not ideal though because there are other places in my code where I need Beta to be null if it doesn't have a value yet.Is there a way to update the report definition to accept a null property as valid? Ideally I would like to specify the value as "Not Set" if Beta is null.

Visual Studio :: 2010 - Can't Open Local IIS?

May 6, 2010

I've just downloaded VS2010 Express to play with on my personal laptop. However, when I try to open an existing website through the "Open Web Site..." / "Local IIS" button, the system trundles on for a bit and then says: "To access local IIS Web sites, you must install the following IIS components: In addition, you must run Visual Studio in teh context of an administrator account."

Note the blank line after the "you must install...." [strikeout]Is this a limitation of the "Express" editions of Visual Studio? [/strikeout] I've just installed VS2010 Premium from our MSDN DVD and it has the same problem.... Also, seems to have broken VS2008 as well since I can no longer browse Local IIS from VS 2008 either. Good thing I installed this on my backup machine first and I can still get work done on my main development machine!
