Visual Web Developer 2010 Express - Installation Method On Windows Server 2008
Oct 18, 2010
We are trying to install VWD 2010 on a windows 2008 server. We already have installed the 2008 version as well as SQL 2005, 2008 and 2008 R2. The Web Platform installer is not installing VWD 2010 however.At first it notified us that the OS does not allow it, after running tons of updates on the OS (some of which failed) it is still not doing it, not even donwloading it. The latest message simply asked us to post the error on the forum
My existing system has Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. But Microsoft web installer for Webmatrix has made Wematrix Launch ribbon menu pointing to Visual Studio 2008. How could I make Webmatrix point to Visual Web Express 2010. To make use of IntelliSense and the debugger, I have to manually launch Visual Web Developer 2010 Express.
Embarrassed that I'm stuck on this I've downlaoded sqlserver express 2008 R2 and VS web developer 2010. Set up a databse wrote a mini test site and am now trying to connect to my database to fetch records back. However i'm getting the error message "Invalid object name 'customer'." (I have a feeling its running it on the master db and not my 'customerdb' but can't prove this as express doesn't have a profiler).
I've wrote the comprehensive post within my blog: [URL] In brief words everything is simple:
1. I've downloaded free Visual Studio C# 2010 Express and Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express 2. I've successfully installed these versions. 3. I've tried registration online - and got the appropriate keys which I've used for registration.
Finally all the keys I've got are not valid for the system - and after 30 days evaluation (for free version?) period all these products are not running anymore because all the keys I am providing from online registration are invalid.
I already have SQL Server (Developer Edition) installed on my computer. I'm learning ASP.NET by going through some video tutorials. These tutorials use VWD 2008 Express so I'm going to install that version (instead of 2010). Will the VWD installation recognize my existing version of SQL Server and connect to it properly after the install? I read something about VWD Express not working correctly with SQL Server Developer Edition.
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'm totally new to ASP.NET ( as a VC++ 6.0 engineer ), I have just downloaded the express edition of 2010 web developer and cannot find for the life of me the correct project template to create an ASP.NET webservice.. in 2008 it appears there is an option for this .. however I cannot find it in 2010..
I have a form that I'm working on in Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. I have a dropdown list to choose a data from the database. I want to use the chosen list item to populate a GridView object. This seems like it should be a simple thing to do.I have a data connection which uses a fixed SQL statement to populate the dropdown list and that works fine. I can select an item on the list and retrieve the correct information for the next query (namely an ID value for the next SQL statement).I have the data connection with another SQL statement to populate the gridview and that works fine. The gridview is currently just showing the entire dataset (it doesn't use the item that was selected in the dropdown list.Now I want to change the gridview's data connection to use the selected item in the dropdown list as a parameter to modify the SQL statementWhen I look at the properties of the data connection for the gridview data, I can bring up the Query properties and see the select statement. I also see the properties panel. I can add a property Name (Mine is "ID"). I then chose "Control" in Parameter Source and selected the ControlID for the dropdown list that has the ID information that I want to use for the parameter. I went into the advanced properties and modified some of the information because the ControlID is a Text field and the Database Column is a BigInt.My select statement looks like this:
What I don't know is how to get the parameter into the select statement.I've tried:
i create a asp.net web aplication project, and when i debug it i can see the result on localhost that is ok. but how can i publish this site on the web? there is no publish button ont the build menu and solution explorer menu?
I created a "website" in VWD 2010 Express. The project contains no bin folder and I can't seem to compile it. I don't have a web host, so for now I'd like to run my site on "localhost" on my machine: i.e. I'd like to drop the DLL (if there is one) and my aspx files into a folder on my hard drive and run the site from there. The site runs if I open VWD and run the asp.net web server, but I would prefer to not have to open VWD each time I want to load my site.
