I'm designing a layout for a report in VS2008 using SSRS/RDLC format. And every time I setup a part of that report i test it on my workstation to see if everything is ok. But, today, i finished the first page of that report and uploaded it to my hosting server (were it's going to be used), and when i press the button to convert the report to .pdf and download it the layout is completely ruined :-/ When i do the same thing in my workstation every thing 'comes out' beautifully, but up on the server it doesn't .
I am working on the migration of the server. Our new server is Windows server 2008 with IIS7.0 I have a great difficulty in browsing the pages hosted in virtual directories. I have followed the proper steps of creating a virtual directories and converting them into applications. But when i try to browsing the pages of the virtual directory, i get the 404 error. Note: The .Net Framework 4.0 is installed on the server and the web applications which i am trying to configure in the virtual directories are developed in Visual Studio 3.0. Even the http://localhost also don't work.
Recently I had a weird problem while trying to install SQL Server Reporting Service in my local PC. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and I wanted to configure SSRS in my PC. During the installation, the setup wizard listed all the services that we want to install and I found that only Reporting Server checkbox option was disabled and I wondered why??? I thought it may be becuase of some installation problem and tried again and its useless... I googled lot of sites for 3 days and finally found that due to some IIS issues, it is not possible to install Reporting Server in Vista Home Premium version. Reporting Server needs some specific IIS features to be installed in the machine.
But unfortunately those features are not available for Home Premium users which in term restricts users not to install reporting server in our PCs... Also, Microsoft has accepted it as an issue and its not possible to get it install in Home Premium...just wanted to share and might be useful for someone like me.
Is there a component I have to install on my IIS web server to support use of AJAX in projects developed in VS 2008 with the AJAX Controls and Extensions? I downloaded the AJAX Control Toolkit Extensions binary but there's no installable file.ASP.NET AJAX features require that the System.Web.Extensions assembly be installed in the global assembly cache (GAC) of the server where the Web application is hosted. If the assembly is available, your application and any associated controls in the App_Code folder or in an assembly the Bin folder can use AJAX features. For example, they can register scripts or createUpdatePanel controls.http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb907614.aspx
I have created a drill down report in SSRS which works fine in Visual studio but when deployed and viewed using a report viewer on an asp.net web page it acts funny. It load fine the first time but as soon as i expand any of the drill downs the width of the report suddenly becomes very! lengthy and the details data disappears.
I have installed the sql reporting server in my system. Issue 1:I am not able to publish the reports from visual studio. When I publish a login box is displayed, and when given admin credentials, it does not accept and shows the box again. The users I tried to login with are members of Administrator groupIssue 2:Report manager URL is given as localhost/Reports_SQLEXPRESS in reporting service configuration manager. But when I use that in the browser, it asks for login, and when provided admin credentials, it gets redirected to localhost/Reports_SQLEXPRESS/Pages/Folder.aspx. There are no property tabs, just the report server page header. The only links are "home" and "help".
I did have this working but now something has stopped it (after trying to integrate combres)
My dev machine is win 7x64, running VS2008. I have a solution with number projects (mostly libraries), one was a webapplication. This webapplication used http://127.0.0.1/ to debug through. That site was configured to point to the home directory of that web application.
It was set up this way because i was URL Rewriting and that was the only way i could get it working
However now whenever i start up visual studio it complains that the local IIS has not been configured, would you like to create the virtual directory. If i say no then the project is not loaded, if i say yes then the process fails with could not find the server http://127.0.0.1 on the local machine. Creating a virtual directory is only supporting on the local IIS server.
I can edit the XML of the project file to turn off Use IIS in which case i can load the project but the site doesn't work through the integrated visual studio server.
I've tried removing the website in IIS7 and removing the AppPool and rebuilding but no go.
We've already set the application pool hosting the site in IIS7 to classic mode and this did not resolve our problem.
Error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed. Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by call to Reponse.Write(), response filters, HttpModules, or server trace is enabled.

I have a zealous network administrator who insists that we must use https on an intranet web application in order to safeguard user's credentials. The app is an asp.net web app that uses Windows Authentication to automatically identify users and log them in. There is no login dialog and user's never enter their login or password. The application does not process any confidential data, and the only rationale for requiring https is to "safeguard" users credentials. Additionally he stated that ntlm can be easily hacked.I responded with some information from an MS white paper on Windows Authentication that said it was the recommended way of authenticating users, and that user's credentials were safe because their passwords are not transmitted across the network when the application authenticates them since it sends a hash of the password.
How can I test an application that I am publishing to a remote provider's IIS7 hosted site, with the VS2008 development server that is built in with VS2008 on an XP Machine?
My membership/roles work perfectly up on the remote host. On ths hosted IIS7 site when I try to access a secure directory it redirects to login, and I am able to login, however when I launch (debug - F5) from VS2008, it will provide that folder/resource, no questions asked. Same build, config, etc... nothing has changed.
I am running XP, and local IIS version installed is 5.1.
My guess is what is happening is that the new format required in the web.config is configured properly for IIS7 deployment, which is why it works remotely, but when running locally through VS2008/XP it is running with an older version on IIS and does not recoginize the new tags.
I am doing a SSRS report to generate some kind of print outs.
I need to have different footers inside the whole print out.
e.g. After first several pages I need to use page number as page footer( this can be easily done). but after that i need have footers as Annex A -1, Annex A-2, or Annex B -1 , Annex C - 1, when the page is Annex A, Annex B...etc.
I'm a software manager that want to select a Reporting engine and develop international application , i want to know Dose SSRS support multi-languages environments(Special in Report Builder for end users) or not ?
I need a reliable method to switch off users' access to SSRS dynamically. If you care about the reason, users are not allowed to access SSRS from home, but they are allowed access from within the factory walls.
I can generate a token or event when they arrive at work or leave, no problem, such is the sophistication of our security system.
So I can create a little .net app that pokes SSRS in some way and tells SSRS to allow that username to access reports. When the users leaves the premises, the .net app will prod SSRS to deny that username access.
I considered dynamically adding and removing usernames from the authentication section of web.config in the SSRS root dir, as in <deny=usernamelist />. But given the frequency of changes (dozens per hour at peak times), that seems too intrusive, as it probably causes the restart of the app.
I tried adding usernames to the ACL on the SSRS physical directory (Microsoft SQL ServerMSSQL.2Reporting ServicesReportServer) as deny reader, and for a few brief minutes I thought I had arrived at a solution, but for some reason SSRS decided to serve pages to denied users seemingly at random. Must be cached somewhere, although I can't for the life of me figure out why that would be happening seemingly at random.
I rather like the ACL idea from the perspective of ease of control, and if there's a simple thing i have overlooked in the way SSRS interacts with IIS and NTFS permissions, I hope someone can point it out so I can understand why the ACL seems to be mostly ignored.
I have SSRS report and have customized the toolbar with textbox. User can enter the report page number and can press enter so that report will generate with report number. I have made autopostback=true to the textbox and below is my code in textbox_textchanged event
Suppose if I enter 2 in textbox and then press enter,it is not firing and if i press enter second time it is working. From page 2 if i enter 1 in textbox and press enter also it is not working.
I am trying to connect linq to dbf file. I am using VS2008 on windows xp with sp2. For most part I can create a connection and see the tables in the server explore, but when I try to drag and drop a table onto the .dbml i get "The selected object is an unsupported data provider". I have been trying to use FoxPro to connect to the DBF. In VS in the Data Connections I go to modify the connection and hit test and the connection says success, but no tables appear.
I have SSRS (discountasp.net) and I currently display reports on my web page using Reportviewer and use .net code to authenticate them (username/password). Recently I have bought VPS (Windows Server 2008 Web Edition + .net 4.0) and would like to use SSRS the same way as above. I have never done this before so need some guidance on that just to ensure the server is still "safe". Below are some questions that I think are related but feel free to add other comments that I didn't think about.
1) Set up new user? What permissions are required? 2) Configure SSRS to for external connections? 3) Firewall?
