Installing MVC 3 for Visual Studio 2010 on Windows Developer Preview after installing MVC 4

I am playing more with the Windows Developer Preview and simply love the backward compatibility it has for applications that used to work in Windows 7. And one of the applications critical to my day-to-day life is Visual Studio. Visual Studio 2010 with SP1 and ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools is my everyday requirement. Windows Developer Preview when installed from the MSDN Center has two flavors. One with the Developer Tools which I would assume, most of us developers would want and the other one, which is simply ......

HTML5 development with Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1

At TechEd India 2011 I presented on HTML5 Development with Visual Studio 2010 SP1. I wanted to cover the aspects that were discussed in my session. HTML5 1. HTML5 is the emerging but promising trend in web development 2. Some of the standards have got green signal i.e. they are candidate recommendations. 3. Some others are still work in progress. 4. IE9 implements standardized HTML5 specifications. Visual Studio 2010 and HTML5 Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 comes from basic HTML5 support. Having ......

Creating and running VS 2010 Web Application Projects and Web Sites on IIS instead of the default Cassini web server

One of the clear changes in Visual Studio from Visual Studio 2005, is the dependency of VS on IIS for creating websites/web applications. In VS 2005 until its SP1 you only had the choice to create Websites that use the local cassini web server for development purposes. The Web Application Projects allows you to create the legacy style of project based sites which can run on IIS. From VS 2008, you can create both Web Application Projects as well as Websites that can run on Cassini i.e. without the ......

Visual Studio RTM, Silverlight 4 RTM and WCF RIA Services download links

Its been a long time since I blogged. Primarily due to Tech Ed India, the ongoing Great Indian Developer Summit (GIDS 2010) and the related travels. However, here is a quick post with a few updates. Visual Studio 2010 RTMed in India during Tech Ed. We had the privilege of having Soma our Senior VP launch VS 2010 RTM in Bangalore, India, during Tech Ed India 2010. With that we also had Silverlight 4 getting RTMed during the same week. Earlier I had written posts around using the VS 2010 Beta, RC and ......

Visual Studio 2010 RC – Silverlight 4 and WCF RIA Services Development - Updates from MIX Announcements

MIX is happening and there is a lot of excitement around the various releases such as the Windows Phone 7 Developer Preview, IE9 Platform Preview and few other announcements that have been made. Clearly, the Windows Phone 7 Developer Preview has generated the maximum interest and opened a plethora of opportunities for .NET Developers. It also takes the mobile development to a new generation and doesn’t force developers to learn different programming language. Along with this, few other releases have ......

Visual Studio 2010 RC first look and Windows Azure Tools

As promised in the previous post, here is a first look on Visual Studio 2010 RC. i am sure many of you have downloaded the bits already so this is for those who are waiting yet. VS 2010 RC is an upgrade to the Beta 2 that was shipped last year. This build has been heavily focussed on implementing community feedback and fixing performance issues reported. The start up screen looks as below. A little darker compared to the Beta 2 build. You can read my earlier post on First look on Beta 2 here I didn’t ......

WCF RIA Services Preview and the Visual Studio 2010 RC

Warning: This is my experimentation and cannot be taken as a recommendation ! I gave it to my temptation and installed the Visual Studio 2010 RC despite having a lot of upcoming WCF RIA Services talks. (One is scheduled right tomorrow and it would be disastrous to try anything fancy) Much has been explained around the non-availability of Silverlight 4 Tools updated version for this RC release and subsequently the inability to work with WCF RIA Services and SL4. Infact, Tim Heuer has put up a nice ......

Using WCF RIA Services without Silverlight in Visual Studio 2010 for building 3 tier ASP.NET Applications

I have been playing with the WCF RIA Services (erstwhile .NET RIA Services) for sometime and found that most of the samples out there focus on Silverlight based applications. While the new WCF RIA Services preview for VS 2010 is awesome in terms of its Silverlight integration, I also wanted to test out on building plain vanilla ASP.NET Applications and using the power of WCF RIA Services to build a middle tier for the same. Ok, to begin with, I already had Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 installed and ......

ASP.NET 4.0 QueryExtender, AutoCompleteExtender and UpdatePanel – mashing it up all

(this is a repost since the initial post had a few issues that couldn’t be corrected) I am playing with the ASP.NET 4.0 QueryExtender released as a part of the Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1. It provides endless opportunities for working with data without writing much code and when you combine it with a few Ajax features, gives a truly great user experience with very less effort. To begin with you need the Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 and .NET Framework 4.0 Beta 1. You can install both from http://msdn.microsoft.com/h... ......

ASP.NET Sessions at Tech.Ed India 2009

I am back from delivering Tech.Ed India 2009, particularly the web platform track where I delivered three sessions across 2 days. In addition, we also had Stephen Walther from the ASP.NET Team deliver sessions on ASP.NET 4.0, ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET AJAX. Over the next few posts, I would like to get all the content that we discussed during Tech.Ed India and possible videos so that even if you missed the action over there, you could benefit right here. To begin with, the sessions focussing on ASP.NET ......

Mobile Web Forms in Visual Studio 2008

UPDATE: I see a lot of comments which make me feel that this post has been useful. There have been a lot of queries also around the inability to find the download link.

According to Omar Khan from the Web Development Tools team, ASP.NET Mobile Webforms are really only useful for last generation ‘WAP’ ......
