Visual Studio :: Moving Projects Between 32-bit Windows XP Pro And 64-bit Windows 7?
Apr 28, 2010
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 developed one software in C# and the database used is sql server 2005. I have completed the software but now I want to provide setup in a autorun CD to my customer. I have prepare setup but I am not able to deliver my database along with my .net code. What I want to do is when user will install my project on his computer using the CD I am suppose to provide, it should install SqlServer Enterprise edition and should use this database. It may means that, setup should create database on the user computer.

try to install visual web developer 2010 from web installer,http://www.microsoft.com/express/Downloads/#2010-Visual-Web-Developer once installer screen pop up, it stated that it is not supported for windows vista platform. However, previously before formatting pc, it has successfully installed once.
I've got Visual Stuido 2008 Team Suite + Team Foundation Server + TFS Power Tools running on a Windows XP laptop. Everything uses Windows Authentication.A few weeks ago I changed my Windows password per company security policy. As soon as that happened, I started getting a problem working within TFS. I would be trying to check in or check out a file, or view the history of a file, and I would get the following error: "You are not authorized to access tfs.servername.com". Whenever I get that error, my Windows account has become locked and I need to call the helpdesk to get unlocked.
This issue happens intermittantly...I could be working fine in Visual Studio for several hours and then it'll happen. Sometimes it happens several times in a row - I'll get the account unlocked, and then the next time I try to do something in Visual Studio it locks again.I realize there are a host of ways an account can become locked - believe me, I've run them all out - I don't have any services running on my machine that are tied to my WIndows account, I wasn't logged in to another computer under my old password, I don't have any mapped drives that use my old password. I'm fairly sure there's something in VS or TFS that is causing it - I can work for days without getting into Visual Studio and I don't get the issue. I use SQL Sever 2005 Express, which also uses Windows Auth, and I have no problems. The lockouts only start when I'm doing something in VS.
I just moved to a new PC and installed VS 2010. I copied all of my websites over from the old machine and now when I open the old websites on the new machine, they do not show up in my recent projects list on the start page. New websites that I make do show up there but the old ones do not. This is very inconvenient. Is there a way to make old projects that I open show up in the list?
This brings up another question. Is there a way to make a shortcut that will open VS2010 up with a website already loaded so that I don't have to go through the file open dialog every time?
i have VS 2010 and also VS 2010 Express in buth software when i run my web form application it take max usage of CPU and RAM and my windows 7 not functioning well i try to re install windows 7 and also my VS but i still have the same problem.i got this problem today i just wanted to ask you is this a bug in VS or i got virus?
I have a multi-tiered application. I would like to publish the class libraries to UI developers to let them add to their web or windows projects to add all the functionality.
I would like to restrict access so only a certain project can be referenced. The reason is so that they do not refer to the data access layer directly and start making calls that would bypass the business logic built into the business tier.
UI->>Business Logic->>Data Access
So in other words, BL and DA are deployed as compiled assemblies. BL references DA. UI will reference BL, but I would like to strictly prevent any other project from referencing DA directly.
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 installed Windows 7 a few days ago and everything seemed to install fine. I opened up a rather large project I've been working on and opened up my dataset file. I created a new table in SQL Server 2005 and so in turn I created a new tableadapter. It went through the steps to create the tableadapter fine but when I tried to finish it, it took FOREVER to finally refresh. The table is small, about 6 fields with no data, and I waited 20 minutes at least for Visual Studio to finally respond again. Now I've tried to save my work and it's hung up again. I've been waiting another 20 minutes at least just for VS to save the file. Is there some known issue with datasets and Windows 7? This didn't happen in XP and I simply can't be waiting for an hour to simply add a table adapter and save the file.
I installed Microsoft Windows Sever Enterprise Edition (rus) SP1, downloaded (manually) and installed Windows Server 2003 SP2.Installed VSTS (Visual Studio Team System) 2008 (with MS SQL 2005 Express with it, MS Office 2003, MSSQL2008 Developer Preview), IE7.And my Windows Update does not detect/autoupdates any updates/service packs for VSTS2008 and MSSQLServers...like Windows XP, only updates for operating system Windows Server 2003, .NET, IE7, MS Office, etc.
Is it something wrong with my setup?Should Windows Server 2003 autoupdate detect and install VSTS2008 and MS SQL Servers updates, or should not?
I'm using Visual Studio 2008 SP1 on my Windows XP Workstation.I'm simply trying to create a new website from Visual Studio via the "create website" on our Windows Server 2008 with IIS 7.0When I do this from Visual Studio, I get the error,"Unable to create website, It appears the web server doesn't have FrontPage Server Extensions Installed"OK....So I downloaded FrontPage Server Extensions and Installed it on the Windows Server 2008 that has IIS 7.0 Installed, I rebooted the server and I still get the same error when I try and create a website from Visual Studio from my XP Workstation

I recently purchased a new laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). I installed Visual Web Developer 2008 Express using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer. When I open a .aspx file within one of my websites VWD immediately freezes. The program will not respond and I have to use the task manager to force it to shut. This happens every time.
I have already tried uninstalling and re-installing VWD but the problem still occurs. However if I open another type of file in a website, say a .css or .xml file the problem does not occur. It seems to happen only when I open a .aspx file. Has anyone else come across this?
