Visual Studio :: 2008 Design Mode Hangs On Windows 2008 Server?
Mar 28, 2010
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 created a web app using Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition and have come to the point where I need to publish the site onto my server (which is running window server 2008). I found that the publish function is not limited in the express edition, so published the app to a local file and FTP'd the contents across to my server. I then setup a website through the servers IIS manage and pointed it to the folder containing the FTP'd files.
My question is, how do I run the app? Do I need to point to a specific file?
I have tried to view a number of the files in browser directly from the IIS but keep getting the same standard connection error i.e. "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
I have never used IIS Manager before and I can't find a resource which gives me a step by step guide to setting up a new site which has been created by Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition, are there any config changes needed.
Is there anything special to do with Windows 2008 R2 Server and Visual Studio 2010 to get Oracle quereis to work? I have the same DB Connnection.string I have used before and it works. I am at a loss here.
I'm creating a website and I'm testing resgistering and Log-in.
I followed a simple tutorial to create a Log-in in Visual Studio C# template which generated a SQL Server database.Locally the Log-in and registration page works perfectly. The problem is that when I upload my site to the hosting site the navigation works but the Log-in and Registration forms send an error when clicked "Register" or "Log-in". I contacted the site and they upload my database the way it should be because I was doing it wrong. I can see all my files including the data base.
They commented me that I had to do a connection string to the data base so the login and registration forms can work. I don't understand how to do that, I know the connection string has to be declared in the Web Config File, the thing is that I don't know how to write that code and link it to my data base in the hosting site, in fact I have sample code but I don't know just what do I need to put in it.
i'm quite a newb in asp.net , so here we go:i used the dreamspark project in order to get VS 2008 pro (free and legal) , and then i started experiencing with asp.net .the problem is that whenever i choose the split mode, it doesn't go there at all, and whenever i choose the 'design' mode, the tab itself is frozen yet it's possible to close it. it doesn't matter what the file (with the aspx extention) has in it (even a new blank website) , it always happen.i've tried to re-install VS2008 (after uninstallation&restart) and i also tried to uninstall anything related to dot net (and then install what is needed again through the installer of VS2008) . i even tried out the express version but it didn't work for me.
So here is the problem, when I build my web application in Win 7 x64 and publish (copy) to 2008 Server R2 (also 64 bit), the application won't run when I navigate to a page that uses a 32 bit dll.
When I boot to the Vista x86 partition and build and publish (copy), same code, minimally modified sln file to redirect to same code location. I've created a new entry usiong Menu > Build > Configuration Manager and created a x86 entry. I thought that was all I needed to do to force VS to build to a 32 bit machine. Am I missing something or do I just need to boot Vista when I want to work on my web site?
Would something be missing, not working, or confusing if I do this? First, install SQL Server 2008 Standard, and SP1. Then, install Visual Studio 2010 Professional, unchecking SQL Server 2008 Express option. Or would I need to fix any configurations afterwards?
i have visual studio 2008 and ms office 2007..when i try to develop a web application in vs 2008, i didnt able to open the design view of the web page.. i can only able to see the source view..came to know by googling as, there is some compatibility issues between vs 2008 and ms office 2007 in web authoring components.
I upgraded a project from Visual Studio 2005 to 2008. Now when I'm in the design view of a dataset (an xsd file) and try to add a new column a get an error message:"Failed to add column. The server version is not supported. Only servers up to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 are supported".But if I add a column from Visual Studio 2005 to a SQL Server 2008 database it works fine.
I have a web application created on Visual Studio 2008. It has Class Library with many classes created to support application . Till now it was running in "Any CPU" mode and worked fine. But we wanted to make it run in the 64bit environment and i started getting erros for class library. System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format." So i wonder if there is any incompatibility issues with class library and 64 bit mode? Any of you know if we cant use class library in this environment?
I'm about to start a new module in my existing web application project (already completed 3 modules), due to more data entry and volume of data handling my PM informed me to go this module on windows application (vb.net), but i'm requesting him to go with web application since i'm much familiar in web applcation and all my completed module on web.
But he is thinking on performance part too, if i get some idea / suggestion on the same so that i can clear and i will go with either option.
The module is Service Billing with LPO Control, Billing, Proforma, eBilling, eApproval, online billing etc.
I downloaded VWD 2008 express months ago. Don't know what happened but my design view went.I have reinstalled the application several times but no success. I posted this problem on several forums and got many suggestions like uninstall office 2007, reinstall web authoring component, install n et.framework 3.5 which is not compatible with Win7 and does not install, so I have net.framework 4.0. I tried to bburn the iso file installation package, burnt it to a dvd and install it from the media, nothing.My pc is a Compaq Presario CQ61 Notebook running Win7 Home Edition.
If VS 2008 and VWD 2008 are both installed on the same machine, will they both use the same Projects folder to keep my projects in?If so, can I open the projects and run them interchangeably with VS2008 and VWD 2008? This is the folder that is located at " User>Documents>Visual Studio 2008>Projects
The method GetDesignTimeHtml of the ControlDesigner class should return html markup that will be shown on the page in design time. My problem is that control looks different in different versions of the visual studio. What is the rendering engine visual studio use to render control in design mode?
