I installed VS 2005 on my machine.. and later I installed a few Extentions for .Net framework 3.5 (LINQ, AJAX etc). Later I come up with a requirement to convert a website into WebApplicationn I did it earlier so I was sure It will be done by installing Web Application Project Addin by Microsoft. Unfortunately it did not work and I cound not found the reason. I tried many ways but no success infact I get VS 2005 updated by installing it again. I found the below resolution from http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ast... ...
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 ...
*Moved to: Upgrading Team Foundation Server 2008 to 2010I am sure you will have seen my posts on upgrading our internal Team Foundation Server from TFS2008 to TFS2010 Beta 2, RC and RTM, but what about a fresh upgrade of TFS2008 to TFS2010 using the RTM version of TFS. One of our clients is taking the plunge with TFS2010, so I have the job of doing the upgrade. Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
*Moved to: Upgrading from TFS 2010 RC to TFS 2010 RTM doneToday is the big day, with the Launch of Visual Studio 2010 already done in Asia, and rolling around the world towards us, we are getting ready for the RTM. We have had TFS 2010 Beta 2 and RC in Production for nearly 6 months and have had only joy, so moving to the RTM on launch day gives me warm and fuzzy feelings.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
Normally when I have develop a service layer for my silverlight app I have it all in the same web project (easy, no clientaccesspolicy headaches), … but in some cases I have my service layer in a separate solution, in theory it’s quite easy to setup a client access policy, but… when you try it it fails because that xml policy file is not in the root of the cassini web server :-(. What to do.. change your settings, good old trick that can be applied even to VS 2005 :-) http://weblogs.asp.net/scot... ...
Technorati Tags: WPF WPF patterns : MVC, MVP or MVVM or…? What to use? Model-view-controler, the model-view-presenter or the new paradigm called model-view-viewmodel? MVC is kind of template and also a framework that can be used in VS 2005 and VS 2008. MVVM is a part of WPF which can be used to create windows apps. It's common practice to let the UI layer do more than it should. Without a clear separation of responsibilities, the UI layer can often become a catch-all for logic that really belongs ...
[Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/E... Following on from the sample for processing Excel uploads with nServiceBus, I have a comparable version using BizTalk on MSDN Code Gallery here: BizTalk and nServiceBus Excel Upload. The BizTalk (2006 R2) sample uses a FILE receive port with a simple pipeline component to disassemble the Excel file into separate messages. A SQL send port subscribes to the messages, and with an outbound map calls the AdventureWorks stored procedure to insert each product. ...
*Moved to: Installing Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server SP1I have been trying since SP1 was released to get it installed at Aggreko, but due to our global, three time zones, development team and release schedules it has been very difficult to get some time set aside for it. Now that I am leaving, last day is Tuesday 17th November, there was more of an apatite to take the hit on time and get it installed.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...

I've been renewed again this year as a member of this elite cabal of crazies that call themselves Team System MVP!! I feel really happy today, this is always good to know our commitment to the product we love is recognize by our peers, community leaders and Microsoft. This program has really been a blessing for me in the last 5 years I've met incredibly bright, funny, cranky (at times) and very passionate people that I always look forward to seeing and talking too. My professional career has really ...
I was reading the Developer Evangelist Handbook which is a good guide for public facing developer evangelists created by Chris Heilmann of the Yahoo Developer Network. Check out the online handbook here http://developer-evangelism... In this handbook there is some great advice for people who complete public presentations or someone who want to expand their current speaking engagements. In reality many developers are evangelists (or should be) at there places of employment. Developers often feel ...
*Moved to: Connecting VS2008 to any TFS2010 Project CollectionEasy peasy, all you need is the full URL from the project collection and you will be able to connect directly to it as if it was a different Team Server. This functionality was added with Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1, so if you don’t have SP1 installed yet you had better get it: Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
We’ve been slowly migrating our services from asmx to WCF, but as we’re still using BizTalk 2006 with no support for WCF we’ve been exposing endpoints configured for basicHttpBinding and consume them using the SOAP adapter. Generally speaking things have been going well, although we completely gave up on the idea of moving the services to WCF and NOT have to change the client, until yesterday we’ve stumbled into a serialisation issue – The SOAP adapter, as part of its work deserialises the request ...
This is on the request of some of my readers to show how effective Asp.net menu control is by using CSS Control Adapter. Most of the folks either have no idea of what CSS Adapter is or have some problem in integrating that with their applications. So, In this post I will brief you guys how can we use CSS Adapter to format the design of Asp.net Menu Control. Before we start, let me dig out why would somebody use CSS Adapter and what does that do ? Have you ever notice by viewing the source of your ...
other day I had to install Visual studio.NET 2003 on my system, the problem was I had Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 with framework 2.0 and 3.5 and I did not have .NET 1.1 on it. There were two suggetions from ppl at work: Install .NET framework 1.1 and load project in VS 2005 You will need to Un install VS 2005 and 2008 and then install VS.NET 2003 After googling a little first idea did not seem workable and I was not ready to follow the second option of starting all over. Half hour down I found a ...
After a long break, I’m back at taking MS cert exams. I recently passed the MS 070-541 exam, MS WSS 3.0 App Dev. Man, SharePoint is interesting. Some of the questions were tricky, but in the end with a good bit of hands on real-world experience and a few weeks of reading and studying the test was passed. It is interesting how you can take one exam and become an MCTS. I’ve already started studying for the first of two upgrade exams from .NET MCSD to VS 2005 MCP Enterprise. I have less than three weeks ...
Issue 1: Remote Debug You can't remotely debug an application from Visual Studio 2008 when the installed debugger on the remote (target) machine is from the Visual Studio 2005 install. You must install the Visual Studio 2008 remote debugger on the target computer to attach to the remote debugger from the Visual Studio 2008 IDE. I believe side-by-side installation of the VS 2005 and VS 2008 remote debugger is fine. However, I don't believe they can run concurrently. Issue 2: MSTest If you try to run ...

You've probably just converted your vs 2005 web project with ajax to vs 2008. This is because Visual Studio 2008 has a newer, built-in version. The fix is short and sweet! Remove the System.Web.Extensions from references, then add them back again! That should connect you with the correct assembly. If you're uncertain how to remove the reference, check this out: http://geekswithblogs.net/A... ...
Let's say you've converted a vs 2005 asp .net project over to vs 2008 and you have old ajax references like System.Web.Extensions, etc. that you want to get rid of, but they don't show up under the Solution view. The way to remove those references (or add new ones) is to do the following: Right click on the solution (assuming the solution view is active) Select Property pages At the bottom of the dialog box you'll be able to Add, Remove or update ...

On the project I just completed I was in need of the ability to quickly package a site definition, web parts, and workflows for a custom SharePoint site. I ended up using 3 different techniques in order to package the 3 different solutions. Which in the long run I wouldn't recommend, but overall I now have a much deeper aspect of the different techniques I used. I will detail the pro's and con's I found for all of them and you can make your own decision as to which one you would use to suit your ...
*Moved to: What to do when you dont have a working computer!I have a little problem...I don't have a computer at home at the moment :( So I am writing this post from my Pocket PC using Diarist 2. I will come back to that, but first... The reason for my lack of my "can't live without accesory" is that my laptop has finaly given up the ghost. It is an 8 year old Dell desktop replacemnt, and in my infinite wisdom I desided to install Vista just after it went RTM. All was well for a while, but it was ...
After my experiences with installing VS 2005 SP1, I decided I wasn't going to get worked up over a long install for this one. So I actually started the install process before I left the office yesterday and then (gasp!) left the laptop there to go home and enjoy the evening. Came in this morning, checked the install log (it went well) rebooted and I now how an updated VS 2008 with less stress :) On looking at the logfile it did take nearly over an hour and a half to install so I'm glad I didn't try ...
Hello everyone, With SQL 2008 shipping late last week it was time to try my hands at this scenario. It worked great but with a few things to remember. Here is the lowdown. There are two way to go about in order to install TFS with SQL 2008 1) Fresh install, 2) Upgrade SQL. 1) Fresh Install I used Windows 2008 because this is going to be the prevalent OS to install on when people are going to start fresh or it most likely will. There was a little issue with that install when Windows 2008 RTM’ed back ...
Background (skip if you know Web Application Projects) In VS 2002/2003, the web project model for a website was similar to "class library" projects, where you have a .CSPROJ or .VBPROJ file that keeps track of files "included" in the project, and compiles all the pages and controls code behind to a single assembly under "\bin". Each page/control has an automatically generated .DESIGNER.CS or .DESIGNER.VB file, which contains objects mapping to the server controls in the page/control markup (the generation ...
So XNA epic failed/pwned me last night. So I wrote my great Pong game and am building an installer (which is essentially an HTML page with links to the other installs) when I learn, via Creators.XNA, that since I use the GUID namespace to create new saved games the player is required to install Visual C# Express 2005 or have full VS 2005 pre-installed. This means, over the 3-4 already required redistributable packages, you also need to install 2 quite large components that basically install a whole ...
I have a big solution in VS 2005 that I converted to VS 2008. However each time when I closing and then re-opening solution, the Conversion Wizard opens again, runs for some time and shows that conversion completed successfully. UPDATE: I finally found the reason of re-running of Conversion Wizard. My solution had some UNLOADED projects, that were in VS 2005 format and failed to be converted. I expected that unloaded projetcs will be ignored , but Conversion Wizard each time tried to convert them. ...

I've finally uploaded my ESBSimpleSamples project to CodePlex here: ESB Simple Samples It's intended as a quick-start for using the ESB Guidance package, and it has a client library for building strongly-typed service request objects. It has two very simple sample services which return the encoded value of a given character, either in ASCII or Unicode. The services are exposed as Web services and IIS-hosted WCF, and there's a WinForms client which lets you call them directly or via ESB. Prerequisites ...
In 2004 I discovered Visual Studio 2003 and the WebMatrix tool. Having avoided Classic ASP in the days of VB6, I could not wait to sink my fingers into the new tool. I found the IDE to be quite daunting at first but quickly brought myself to speed. At about the same time, Photoshop also crashed landed into my newbie life. I found myself stuck between development and design. Eventually, I went for the whole deal, I wanted my apps to look slick and polished, so I hit the web and stuffed my 40Gig HD ...
I fixed the error I posted about yesterday. I updated the post to say: Update: I had also uninstalled VS 2008 Team Suite trial, when I went to install VS 2008 For Developers, I didn't have enough space, which is why I had uninstalled VS 2005 in the first place. I freed up some space and installed VS 2008 and now all is working. Technorati tags: TeamBuild, MSB3147 ...
All of our projects that use TeamBuild are now being built with Visual Studio 2008, so to free up some much needed space on our server, I uninstalled Visual Studio 2005.

If you're used to working with the VS 2005 Performance Tool (Dynamic Code Analysis) and you're starting to work on projects in VS 2008, you may have been a little surprised as I was running the VS 2008 version on existing code and getting different results than you get in VS 2005. By Default in a VS 2008 profiling session there is a check box called "Exclude Small Functions from Instrumentation" which is checked. You may need to uncheck it in order to get more complete results on your code. An example ...
The free software was worth the effort. OK, I forgot to mention that I went to the Heroes Happen Here seminar. I registered for both the IT Pro and the developer track. Of course, when I registered online, the dev track was full, so I registered for IT pro. When I got there, some dev track entries opened up, so I was there ALL day. Worth it? Sorta. The free software was worth the effort. At the time, I was using the Enterprise editon of VC++ 6.0 and the Standard edition of VS 2005 (...paid for it ...
I finally got a Virtual Server 2005 VM running with my clients entire intranet SPS 2003 portal running. It took a bit of time to restore all 70GB of content data. What I have now is a 120 GB VM that is a great way to test the upgrade. Here are some lessons learned: 1. VPC 2007 to Virtual Sever 2005 Does not always work as advertised - I started off this project with a baseline Windows 2003 VPC built on my laptop. The trick is that the VPC used specific IDE controller drivers based on the hardware ...
We're looking at using Microsoft's ESB Guidance package to implement a message bus. The bus will be the core of the client's planned Service Oriented Infrastructure, and all existing apps will route communication through ESB. There'll be a few posts coming up covering what it provides, how to use it and some simple walkthroughs, but I'll start with a basic overview and installation tips. Overview Ignore the name - ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) Guidance is not a set of documents giving you best-practice ...
Hello everyone This is my first blog entry at this site and first in a couple of years, but I wanted to share something I created with some help. Since generics came out with VS 2005 I wondered if it were possible to create a completely generic data access layer. I also wanted to take advantage of some cool features like custom attributes, enterprise library, and reflection. One that could get and update objects regardless of the type of object being manipulated. With the help of some great authors ...
I mentioned a while back that we setup a server farm with a Query, Index, Application, and SQL Box. Well we deployed all the old web parts and we are having all kinds of crazy issues on this farm. I'm not sure exactly what nuttiness is occurring, but half the time the solution packages are failing to deploy or the feature isn't installing in the batch files. Unfortunately, I installed VS 2005 and VSEWSS 1.1 and Visual Source Safe. I tried implementing the solutions through Visual Studio and it will ...
Dated: March/2008 Yes as saddening that sounds, it seems it is true. Having a bit of slack time and not being able to give VS2008 a whirl earlier due to project pressures, I broke it out today all eager to gauge what elegance this IDE brings, specially since I had the need to write a test WebPart. Out of instinct I went File -> New Project -> *hold up where is the SharePoint Category. So then me thinks ah! its not built in to the product, maybe another extension for Visual Studio. So googled ...
Adding references to WCF services is trivially easy with Visual Studio 2008, but if you're still working with 2005 there are a few things that need to be considered when referencing WCF services instead of using Add Web Reference. The following step-by-step is meant to help particularly those who have not developed WCF services but just need to consume them. It applies to both, VS 2005 and VS 2008. Prerequisite installs for Visual Studio 2005 If you are in a library, console, or Windows forms project, ...
I knew it's there all over the web, and people are still asking, so, let's go through it together! Most simple Visual Studio 2005 add-ins could actually work with Visual Studio 2008. I'm not talking about huge add-ins like Resharper here, but most of the small utilities we find online. If you really want to keep using your add-in, and it doesn't provide a VS 2008 version yet, and you didn't have VS 2005 installed on the machine when you installed VS 2008 (as it tries to migrate the add-in when you ...
I have Visual Studio 2005 environment and decided to try VS 2008. I've read some articles(e.g. here) about site-by-site installation and had an impression, that making a copy of solution is enough. NOTE: If you are using TFS, before conversion of the existing solution, obtain and install Team Explorer Client . VS 2005 is using TFS Source Control, but VS 2008 shows no Source Control plug-in installed. . After installing of VS 2008 I've copied my existing solution as MySolution2008 and opened it in ...
Most of you who have worked with Visual Studio 2008 would love the fact that it supports multi-targetting i.e. targetting different versions of framework v2.0, v3.0 & v3.5. To give a quick background, earlier versions of Visual Studio were tightly integrated with the framework to give maximum benefit. See the chart below .NET Framework 1.0 Visual Studio .NET 2002 .NET Framework 1.1 Visual Studio .NET 2003 .NET Framework 2.0 Visual Studio 2005 .NET Framework 3.0 Visual Studio 2005 + Workflow Extensions, ...

Is this even a supported configuration? Right now mine's not working but I haven't given up yet. I previously had Visual Studio 2005 installed with the Windows Mobile 6 SDK's (both professional and standard) and everything works fine there. Just yesterday installed Visual Studio 2008 and went to look at the Smart Device templates and only the Windows Mobile 5 stuff is there. No problem I figured - maybe just need to re-install the SDK's now that I have VS 2008 so they can be integrated. Did that ...
