Framework 4.0 dll loaded by a 2.0 executable cannot find "xxxx.resources.dll"

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
 Hello, I have an interesting situation here that I was hoping someone may be able to give some pointers on.  First my application is all provided within a class library assembly so that it can be loaded by multiple hosts.  We are investigating moving to Visual Studio 2010 and the .Net Framework 4.0 for some of the new features.  However, one of our hosts is a 2.0 click once application that we do not have the source to.  I've tried modifying the config file for the executable to add the useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy with the 4.0 as the supported runtime and setting loadFromRemoteSources as suggested by a Google search and that came close to working.  However, depending on the workflow through our client code is giving a System.IO.FileNotFoundException for various references. The message associated with the exception is Could not load file or assembly 'file:///XXXXXX.resources.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."  Were the XXXXX changes and the .dll may or may not be present depending on whether Assembly.Load or Assembly.LoadFrom was used to perform the load.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. [Addition: I forgot to mention that our app originally targeted Framework 3.5SP1] Michael Fischer

Are You in the Know?: Find Out What's New with Code Access Security in the .NET Framework 2.0


Unlike role-based security measures, code access security is not based on user identity. Instead, it is based on the identity of the code that is running, including information such as where the code came from. Here Mike Downen discusses the role of code access security (CAS) in .NET and outlines some key new features and changes in CAS for the .NET Framework 2.0.

Where can I find Javascript .NET Framework Reference?


I have been Googling for hours to find a reference to methods and properties in Objects in the .NET framework using Javascript in ASP.

I can see from examples that properties are not spelled the same when accesing from C# in code behind and in Javascript. And it seems like the avaiable methods and events are not the same in C# and Javascript.

Does any one know where I can find such a reference?


Thank you!

Trying to find out how data from warehouse is loaded into a dimension


(SQL Server 2005)

I have a customer data warehouse table that I am loading into a customer dimension.  Each row in the warehouse has a unique integer key.  It is possible to have multiple rows with the same customer name.  Each row will have an account code and an alternate account code.  Besides the key field, Name + Account + Alternate is what makes a row unique.

Once I process the table into the warehouse it looks like I am only getting one entry in the dimension based on customer name.  It is difficult to browse dimensions and tell exactly what is there.  I've tried setting up a plain demision and also adding  Account code and Alternate account codes as attribute relations under Name.  I've also tried a hierarchy with Name -> Account -> Alt Account.

I have a customer with 2 account codes and multiple Alternate codes - 29 rows in the warehouse.  When I browse I only get one result for name - I want to see 29 names all the same.  Do I need to set up the dimension somehow to use Name+Account+Alternate as the key?  Currently I am using the warehouse key field as the key.

Where to find width of ImageButton after the image has been loaded?


I have an ImageButton that loads different images (of differening sizes) based on a selection made by the user from a dynamic data list. This ImageButton is displayed beside the DetailView. I want to get the width of the DetailView (which is static) and the width of the ImageButton so I can set the width of the Div they are contained in to the sum of their width, plus a few px. Once I set the width of the DIV and I set and margins (left and right) are auto, the DetailView and ImageButton will be centered in the page. However, every way I've tried to get the ImageButton width, it is always zero. I've trying coding the ImageButton Load event and its PreRender event but I get zero in both cases. Do I need to check some other property, or another event, like maybe one from the form itself?

Entity Framework with Odata | Scott Hanselman | 'ProcessRequestForMessage' could not be loaded


I'm attempting to reproduce a simple / straight foward demonstartion from Scott Hanselman (azgroups.nextslide.com/odata-begins).  I created a very basic entitymodel then added the service.  However it keeps going to an error in my broswer.  The goal would be to expose my Entity Framework objects over the wire as a web service that I can consume from a client application.  I even started a blank project from scratch and still have the same results (VS2010).  I have sample code as well that can reproduce the problem. 


The operation 'ProcessRequestForMessage' could not be loaded because it has a parameter or return type of type System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message or a type that has MessageContractAttribute and other parameters of different types. When using System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message or types with MessageContractAttribute, the method must not use any other types of parameters.


Steps to repro:

1 Create new WCF Service Application

2 Create new Ado.Net entity model

3 Create new WCF Data Service

4 Set

Test whether Ajax framework loaded properly


Hey fellas,

As most of you probably know, there is a glitch with AJAX, sometimes not loading properly with certain browsers' settings.

I would like to test if it indeed wasn't loaded properly.

I've been suggested on different forum to try this method:

if(page_load) { //if you got here it means that all of javascript functions loaded properly }


I've yet to test it, but I'm not sure how this will work in case that there is an error with AJAX framework loading and javascript freezing.

Could you please suggest another method or insure that the above one does work?

Thanks ahead 


Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.
