how do you package files with a feature in sharepoint 2010?

In my old sp2007 project, I would create a folder that would contain my feature, when it got deployed, any files would also be deployed along with them, so I could use them during feature activation later on (config xml files). How can I also deploy an xml file in 2010 along with my feature?nonam

Session State throws error in ASP.NET Site Pages for SharePoint 2010 portal using Visual Studio 2010


I'm developing Visual Studio 2010 solution for site pages. I’ve created Site Pages in SharePoint 2010 and I’m trying to access Session variables in code behind in ASP.NET but it throws the following error.

Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint 2010 still using .pst files?


The Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint Server 2007 uses a .pst file to store content that is visible in Outlook. This has caused issues in the past with a client's enterprise policy of preventing use of .pst files on desktops. This particular client has an application that periodically checks for .pst files and deletes them, which breaks the Connect to Outlook feature for them.

Does SharePoint 2010 use the same functionality to Connect to Outlook, or something different?

Fast Search 4 Sharepoint 2010 Business Data Connectivity (BDC) - IEntity Could not be found


Hi, I am using Fast for Sharepoint and I have created a simple Employee database in SQL server 2008 and I am trying to crawl this database.

Using Sharepoint designer, I have created an external repository and I have configured it to look at my test database. After trying to crawl this database - I get two successfyul documents crawled - which are just junk documents. And 5 errors.  The errors say:

Error while crawling LOB contents. ( IEntity could not be found using criteria 'Id=2502'. )

I also noticed that if I was to disable "Defaul Action" from the BDC configuration, then I get all successful crawled documents. However, if I click on any of those documents in the search page, then it brings me to "unkown page". 

This makes sense since Default Action (View Profiles) is disabled. Does anyone know how to avoid this error message above without having to disable Defaul Action check box? 

P.S. I can also see that the connection between SQL Server - BDC - SP is working since when I create a user profile page, I can see that data populate.

Unfortunately at this point of time I can’t change the site template from publishing portal to some other template, I am helpless.

Sharepoint 2010 Search feature not working


I just updated from MOSS 2007 to MOSS 2010. Everything looks like it went well and most of the features are working except for the search feature.  When I search for a known document that I know is in a library, Sharepoint does not list any results.   I can no longer search for any documents.  ANy ideas on why this is? What are some steps I can take to look for the problem / solution?  I have gone in the search settings in the central admin site and see that there is an error but cant determine what that is.

Problems after updating the portal to SharePoint Server 2010


Hello everyone.

Updated the portal to SharePoint Server 2010 (Database attach upgrade).
Process was completed: Status - Implemented Fault - 0 Warnings - 25

After updating the portal is available, the content can view, add, modify, add to the libraries and lists of new

columns. However, had this problem. If you change the view of a list of child nodes, it is redirected to a page

... _vti_bin / owssvr.dll? CS = 65001 with the message "Error. The list does not exist."

Changing view from the root node of the collection is fine. The same situation is when you connect SharePoint Designer

2010. The root node is connected, to a child - displays an error - "Version Microsoft SharePoint Foundation, running on

the server is newer than your version of SharePoint Designer. You need to install a later version of SharePoint


In the logs record additional information about the error does not contain.

Set up alternative access mapping. Tried to restore from a backup, reconnect the base content - did not help. "Lost"

objects do not found. Test-SPContentDatabase no issues.

Tracing calls to the database content revealed the following fact, when changing view procedure

proc_GetTpWebMetaDataAndListMetaData not share information about the list.

SharePoint 2010 Master page feature stapling - not sure where to put files


I have successfully added a branding feature to my 2010 environment that activates on install. Just as expected, it does not work for subsite creation. I have seen a number of articles/blog posts on how to create a feature stapler for SP2007. However, I am having a hard time finding a working solution for SP2010 using VS2010.

I have a couple of questions that I hope someone can point me in the right direction on:

1. In my project I have a branding feature, this contains the EventReceiver that applies the change. Can I have a second feature here that does the stapling or does it need to be in a completely seperate project?

2. Everything I read points to two files feature.xml and elements.xml, are both of those supposed to be under Features in Solution Explorer or are they located somewhere else or do they need to be create. If they need to be created, where do they belong?

3. In the EventReceiver.cs file there is a GUID that was automatically generated. Is this the GUID referenced in the feature.xml?

Hopefully with these questions answered I can move forward and find a solution to getting the stapler working.
