ThreadAbortException my experiments with //Web

The much awaited Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 is now RTM !!  While we have talked about the .NET 3.5 SP1 features for a long time now, the RTM release marks something special for Web Developers.  You would be able to build and deploy real world applications and use some of the cool features like Dynamic Data.

Before installing Visual Studio 2008 SP1, it is recommended to run the Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack Preparation Tool.  The tool can be downloaded from here  This tool removes any earlier versions of the SP1 Beta and also prepares your system for installing the SP1.

What do I get installing this? Well, a whole bunch of stuff considering that this is just a Service Pack. Instead of me listing it down, there is a cool post by the Web Development Tools team that lists them over here

The Web Development Tools blog is one of the most important resources you need to follow.  You can subscribe for the same at http://blogs.msdn.com/webdevtools/

Also, there is a new blog that is put up for Web Development Tips & Tricks.  Check it out at http://blogs.msdn.com/webdevelopertips/

Cheers !!!

Did someone else his ListView disappear in the Toolbox after the installation of SP1?

How to solve this?

I'm a beginning programmer using Visual Web Developer. I was using the SP1 Beta, and I simply installed the SP1 final version without running the Service Pack Prep tool. It seems to be working ok.

What do I do now?

thanks!

Very helpful indeed! The blog on web development tips & tricks surely helped me out. I'm currently creating a web page for a small business. Being new to web development, this surely helps a lot. It's good people share references about the IT world. Thanks also for the heads up on .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

Is there any post here that is currently running these days? The post here is dated 2008 and I am wanting to know if they have a certain new fresh list here.
