Best Way to Upgrade Using Web Setup Project


Hi there,

I am using VS2005.

I don't have much experience with web setup projects, but I now need to create a decent windows installer in order to allow customers to install one of our web applications. I have created a simple web setup project and it works fine, but not when it comes to upgrades of the application.

If for instance I install version 1.0 on a machine, and then later I try to install version 2.0, I don't seem to have the control that I would like... I can specify in the web setup project that the installer must enforce an uninstall of previous version, but then all application files and logs are uninstalled as well. If I let the application just install itself over the older version, it seems to leave some old DLL's there - it then causes issues in the application because DLL version conflicts.

My basic requirement is that I would like th installer to upgrade the old version with all the files required, but leave any application and log files in tact - this way the customer won't have to reconfigure the application after install.

What is the best way to handle this?

Who Goes There?: Upgrade Your Site's Authentication with the New ASP.NET 2.0 Membership API


Here Dino Esposito and Andrea Saltarello cover the plumbing of the Membership API and its inherently extensible nature, based on pluggable providers. To demonstrate the features, they take an existing ASP.NET 1.x authentication mechanism and port it to ASP.NET 2.0, exposing the legacy authentication mechanism through the new Membership API.

An example of packaging web application containing database upgrade SQL file

A few months ago, we have a blog talking about extending the web publishing pipeline to package database project deployed SQL file.  In this blog, I'll show step by step example of packaging web application with SQL Server database upgrade SQL file using Visual Studio 2010.  This way, we can generate a web package with incremental SQL script to certain database version.  The scenario may help distributions of a web upgrade package which needs to be installed on many different locations, each with their own SQL server database.   1. Create a Web Application Project 2. Add a new "SQL Server 2008 Database Project" to the solution 3. Prepare a development database, such as my test1 database as the following: 4.

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson

Attempting to copy article resolvers from SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\Replication\ArticleResolver Msg 25026, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_registercustomresolver, Line 82 The proc sp_registercustomresolver cannot proceed because it is not run in the context of the distribution database, or the distribution database is not properly upgraded.

Hello SQL Support group, I have SQl server 2008 R2 installed on a Win 2003 R2 and it is for our SharePoint and Project server 2007 environment. Today I noticed that we have only 75 days left! Seems like we installed it on evaluation mode. Here what we have on Helpàabout : Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Complete (expires in 75 days)    10.50.1352.12 We do have MSDN account, and we have the KEY that comes with the SQL server 2008 R2 enterprise. We would like to assign the key to our SQl server ( we want to have enterprise edition). It is in a production environment now. I would like to know how we can do it  with minimum of down time. I found this link: http://blogs.technet.com/b/sqlman/archive/2010/03/16/sql-server-2008-upgrading-to-standard-enterprise-edition-from-evaluation-edition.aspx On the internet, but doesn’t say anything that we are losing any data after upgrade or not. Please let us know the best way to assign the key, and if it has any impact in our data. Thanks Bahram

COM Server upgrade breaks interface

Ok, so apparently I posted this question in the wrong group last time, so I'll try again :) ======= I have an ActiveX exe that I’m calling from a Web Service. The ActiveX exe however gets upgraded independently of the web service. When this happens the web service breaks. Looking in the registry, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHING \ SOFTWARE \ Classes \ {DLL Name}  - the GUID seems to remain consistent after upgrading the EXE, however I’m guessing the interface GUIDs much change for some reason. Is there perhaps a GUID per interface that’s exposed that’s changing when the ActiveX EXE is recompiled? If so can someone tell me how to view these interfaces and confirm that his is or is not the case. ======= What I'm trying to figure out of why my Interop Proxy DLL stops working every time the developer of this ActiveX EXE releases a new version. As I said that GUID in the redistry seems to remain the same. I'm just not sure how to go about debugging the issue. I don't want to have to re-compile my application every time he releases a new version and he does not seem to think he's changing the interface - so something else must be changing when you /unregserver  /regserver the COM server \ ActiveX EXE. ========

SQL Job Running the Upgrade Step, but the Step Fails

I have reviewed the following thread (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqldatabaseengine/thread/1c06be77-3fa9-42d8-9803-6649be65afd6), but I do not think it applies to my case, b/c I have no other processes running, except the RESTORE DATABASE process. In SSMS, when I EXEC spCent, the user-defined stored procedure runs successfully. When the same SQL command is executed from a SQL Job, the job fails, and job history is like the following: Message: Executed as user: NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE. ...on file 1.
