SketchFlow Build Error - “The Name ‘InitializeComponent’ does not exist in the current context”
This is my first real go round with Expression Blend and SketchFlow and it is taking quite a while to get used to it. After several iterations of names and screen dragging, dropping in the SketchFlow Map, and adding a few elements to some screens, I decided to try and run my recently created Silverlight SketchFlow project. To my surprise I received error message and a broken build. How could I get a build break if I didn’t even write any code? Man, maybe I should stick to Visual Studio. My co-workers ......

Visual Studio 2010 Type or namespace ‘xyz’ does not exist in…
It pains me to write this post as I feel like an idiot for having wasted my time on this “problem.” Hopefully in posting this, I can keep some other poor lost soul working at 4 AM in the morning from spending wasteful minutes scratching his head and getting frustrated. The Visual Studio designer will work fine in resolving namespaces, but when you build you will get the “Type or namespace ‘xyz’ does not exist error. If you see this error please take a look at your Errors List window and ensure that ......

Converting the Silverlight Business Application Template to use Windows Authentication
For my first “real” attempt at creating a business application using Silverlight I decided to use WCF RIA Services, Silverlight 4.0, and Visual Studio.NET 2010. What easier way to get started than through a template provided by VS.NET 2010, right? Well, in its effort to make it easier it also create some headaches. Sometimes abstraction can add a learning curve as well. In this case it created some headache for me on this project. As an IT consultant for small to enterprise level business most of ......

PDC 2009 Hangover
For the first time in my career I have attended a major conference and it was well worth the wait. I had a handful of major objectives in attending of which all were met. Gain an understanding of Azure and how we can leverage it for our small and mid market customers. Gain more detailed insight into changes in SharePoint 2010 that will impact customizations and solutions that we provide our customers. Have some dialog with some of the MS data team members and others to understand MS’ vision for data ......

A Week Later and Still Using Windows 7
Here I am after a week of putting Windows 7 to the test while working frantically on a tight timeline project and am happy to say that all is well. It has crashed a time or two and I still cannot install Visio 2007 or SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition, but I am still pleased. It seems to be faster than XP and I quickly got the hang of using the UI and the search feature. There are quite a few handy conveniences that will make life easier such as the RDP client has a recently used list. I went ahead ......

Avoiding Windows 7 RTM Corrupt Disk Message with XP Dual Boot
I decided to join in on the fad and perform a dual boot installation of Windows 7 RTM on my laptop with Windows XP. I am working on a project with a pretty tight timeline so installing from scratch was way too risky. I took the advice from some of my co-workers and went for the dual boot option by creating a partition using Acronis Disk Director in which to install the new OS. I created a 30 GB partition and started installing with the DVD that was created from the ISO. The installation was super ......
