SQL Server :: Moving From 2005 To 2008 In Windows 7 Home 64 Bit
Dec 12, 2010
Does anyone have a good tutorial and location of download for SQL server 2008 instructions. I have windows 7 home 64 bit. I have 2005 already on my system and want to update it without any issues hopefully.
I am planing to move my sql server 2005 database to sql server 2008 database for my asp.net website. Due do this migration is it I have any issue in sqlserver side or my website will work(sp, views, table) without any issue ?
I used SQL SERVER 2008 R2 express as my web development database and I set its compatibility level to 2005. Unfortunately this database cannot be be attached to SQL server 2005. Are there any other options?
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.
Currently we are running an application build in VB6,ASP,Commerce Server2000 and Sql Server 2000. This application is running in Windows 2000 server.Now we are planning to migrate Windows server 2000 to Windows 2008.Will this application run in Windows 2008 or do we need to upgrade this application to dotnet and Sql 2008?
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 was being used along with SQL Express for website development on the Operating System, Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition of Intel Xeon CPU @ 2.13 GHz (2 Processors) containing 12 GB RAM with 64-bit Operating System. Website was developed along with the databases of SQL Express with the help of Visual Studio. Whether the developed website along with the databases may be used on the Operating System, Windows 7 of 64-bit? The website will used within Intranet. Which Operating System and configuration to be used for the Intranet Website?
I've installed IIS for Windows Server 2008 SP2 and Windows 7. In both instances, I can't get even the simplest of ASP.net scripts to work (note: I'm ftping the published files from Visual Web Dev 2008 Express on XP):
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.
Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.
Line 36: ASP.NET to identify an incoming user.Line 37: -->Line 38: <authentication mode="Windows"/>Line 39: <!--Line 40: The <customErrors> section enables configuration Source File: C:inetpubwwwroot estweb.config Line: 38
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".
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.
I just downloaded and installled the Microsoft Windows Azure SDK yesterday for the first time and I am having issues running the application as I all I am getting is 503 errors. I run Windows Server 2008 R2 on my development machine and even tested it on another co-workers 2008 R2 and couldn't even compile the application. He got this error instead "A problem occurred while trying to set the "References" parameter for the IDE's in-process compiler. Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component."
From within my Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V Virtual Windows 7 x86 enviroment, I was able to successfully build and run the Windows Azure SDK and it even showed the base ASP.NET application.So my question is, does the Windows Azure SDK for Visual Studio 2010 w/ Visual Studio 2010 SP 1 installed not work under Microsoft Server 2008 R2?
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 ASP.net 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?
I have looked at all the posts I can find on this problem and tried everything I can think of, but still the problem persists. I am getting really sick of it.was working fine for the last year until an update to MS Office 2007 caused a lot of problems (automatic update). After checking posts here, I removed it completely. No change. I then tried all the things I could find on other posts, also no change. Today, I removed VS and the Web Authoring Component and re-installed. Still no go.
Does anyone have a fix for this problem. It seems that it has been around a long time, but is still giving problems. I even saw one suggestion to reformat the drive! You've got to be joking!
I have made a Virtual Directory in XP. I have files with no extension. When I click on those files they are downloaded perfectly from a XP Server. However when I made the server on Windows 2003 Server. I got problems downloading these files. What should I do in Windows 2003 Server Settings? Or should I do something with my code. I am pretty sure that I will not have to disturb my code as it is running fine on XP
Previous developers have developed a .SSISDeploymentManifest file (SQL Server 2005) to install SSIS packages which prompts a Package Installation wizard. I tried to install it on SQL Sever 2008 (it works on SQL Server 2005), but it failed with the error: "Storing or modifying packages in SQL Server requires the SSIS runtime and database to be the same version. Storing packages in earlier versions is not supported".
How do I install 2005 SSIS packages on SQL Server 2008? I have all the .dtsx files, not sure how to install them?
Could anyone tell me the features comparision between sql server 2000, 2005 and 2008 in the table format like below. sql server 2000 features | Extra features added/supported in 2005 | Extra features supported in 2008
The sites that I've got are still in classic ASP. I know this is a good reason to move to .net but I don't want to have to redo all the sites yet.
So here is the problem:
When I have "On Error Resume Next" no erros get posted and everything runs just fine, the pulls from the database work perfectly. But as soon as we take On error resume next we start getting the following erros: err#424err desc:Object requiredsql:SELECT Name,URL,Title FROM tblMenu WHERE Parent_ID=1 AND Deleted=0 ORDER BY SortOrderScript Name: /index2.asp
I have a web app that runs on local and use merge replcation using sql server 2005 standard on the server and sql express 2005 on clients on XP. As you know, XP Pro laptops are getting hard to find. We are trying to change to Windows 7 Pro x64. I installed SQL Express 2005 and I don't see a subscription on "Sync Center" after I created local subscription using SSMS. I normally see the subscription in Synchronize in XP Pro right away.
I googled about this issue and not really have a good solution. There is one link saying Windows 7 not supporting Express 2005 anymore. [URL] If so, I would like to know what would be a solution such as can I use Sql Express 2008 R2 instead of Sql Express 2005 for client even if the server is still SQL Server 2005 Standard edition. We are planning to upgrade, but we need to hire 5 to 10 people now. My boss does not want us to keep using XP Pro.
