Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

reading values from config files in NUnit tests


One of my NUnit tests has to read in some values from config files.  In my main application this process works perfectly well, however when I run the unit test, the code that reads in the values from the config files doesnt read anything in.  Ive tried putting app.config in my unit test project (I even tried web.config) but nothing seems to work.  Are there any special steps involved when reading from config files in an nunit test ?

NUnit and config files


Ive created an NUnit test project in my solution and have added 3 tests.  They all fail with the same error

SetUp : System.TypeInitializationException : The type initializer for 'Systems.Utils.ConstantHelpers' threw an exception.
  ----> System.NullReferenceException : Object reference not set to an instance of an object.


SetUp : System.TypeInitializationException : The type initializer for 'Systems.Utils.ConstantHelpers' threw an exception.

The ASP Column: What's in ASP.NET Config Files?


Even though you've been using ASP. NET for a while, how much do you really know about ASP. NET configuration files? While you've probably touched the Web. config file from time to time, there are some nuances involved in configuring ASP.

Updating Config Files in Sharepoint Farm

I am trying to update config files web.comnfig in the Virtual Directory of my server so that users are allowed to upload more that 50 MB of files in my IIS 7 server. Everytime i do the update it works fine but after few days when there are few changes then it removes the added elements itself and restore in the Original Stage. I used to edit my config files manually. I found a way of creating a config files and saving it to the Config Directory under 12 Hive in Server. Like the Content will be similar as follows <actions>    <add path="configuration/SharePoint/SafeControls">       <SafeControl          Assembly="System.Web, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral,             PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"          Namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls"          TypeName="*"          Safe="True"/>    </add>   </actions> I have to add following line <system.webServer>     <security>       <requestFiltering>         <requestLimits maxAllowedCon

Need Best Practices for SSI packages (dtsx-files + ONE config)

Please advice hot to keep connection string for many packages at one place. Idea is to have one .dtsConfig-file for each iteas is not acceptable. DEV, TEST and PROD - different virtual computers. Each one can have it's own config-file lying in one and the same folder (c:\bi\configs\)

Why are folder web.config files excluded?

I am asking this mainly out of curiosity. When access rules are created for folders using WSAT, web.config files are generated in these folders. I thought these rules should be deployed with the application (It is at least the case for all my applications), but these file are not included after creation so they are not deployed by default. What is the rationale behind this?

Deployment Of SSIS With Config Files


I went through other threads and links on this subject. Still one thing which concerns me is the config files.

My current folder path is C:\Karunakaran\folder1\folder2\

Under folder2 I have the following files

4 dtsx files
1 .database file
1 .dtproj file
1 .dtproj.user file
1 .sln file
1 .suo file

Config folder ( C:\Karunakaran\folder1\folder2\Config\)

Based on some of the threads, when I enabled package configuration, I changed the path from
C:\Karunakaran\folder1\folder2\Config\common.dtsconfig -> common.dtsconfig

Once I did this, when I open the project I get a dozen of warning similar to the one below

Warning loading <package1>.dtsx: Failed to load at least one of the configuration entries for the package. Check configurations entries and previous warnings to see descriptions of which configuration failed.

What am I doing wrong here? If I have to deploy this to another box, what should I do to ensure that nothing breaks once its copied / installed?


Help with authorization in web.config to deny access to files in a folder



I have a web site that has a folder called Files that contains PDF files.  These PDF files should not be accessible to people who have not signed in to the web site. 

The login URL is www.mysite.com/Account/Login.aspx and the register URL is www.mysite.com/Account/Register.aspx. 

Once the person is signed in they can go to www.mysite.com/Documents/Documents.aspx.  This page has a gridview that lists the PDF files in the Files folder with a link to them.  If the person is not signed in, he/she can't view this Documents.aspx page.  However, if anyone has the URL to the PDF files, they can view those files without having to sign in.

How can I prevent someone from accessing the PDF files in this folder?

The site is hosted on GoDaddy using IIS 6.0.

Thanks in advance.

Missing SSIS Extension in Config Files


As I understand it, in order to use an SSIS package as a data source in a report, I need to enable the SSIS extension in the RSReprotDesigner.config and RSReportServer.config files.  That extension is in neither of these files. I have SSIS running on my machine with Reporting Services.

The path to RSReportServer.config: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10_50.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer

The path to RSReportDesigner.config: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies

Why is this extension not in either of these files?

The following is an abbreviated list of what's present in the RSReportServer.config file:

 <Extension Name="SQL"
 <Extension Name="SQLAZURE"
 <Extension Name="SQLPDW"
 <Extension Name="OLEDB"
 <Extension Name="OLEDB-MD"
 <Extension Name="ORACLE"
 <Extension Name="ODBC"
 <Extension Name="XML"
 <Extension Name="SHAREPOINTLIST"
 <Extension Name="SAPBW"
 <Extension Name="ESSBASE"
 <Extension Name="TERADATA"

The following is an abbreviated list of

How to transfer files between computer and mobile device using bluetooth

What is Bluetooth? How can I have it on my computer?

Bluetooth wireless technology is a communication technology that allows two devices to communicate wirelessly. Most of the notebooks are nowadays equipped with bluetooth. For those notebooks or computers that don't, you can use a bluetooth dongle to add the functionality and it just costs you around $5. Although higher price range bluetooth dongles are available but it makes no sense of buying them if you just plan to connect your mobile device to the computer. Look for one that has Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR (Enhance Data Rate) supporting speeds of upto 3Mbps and with Vista support. You can easily have one of that kind in just $5.

Setting up bluetooth to work on your computer

Just Insert the bluetooth dongle in the USB.
It should get detected by your Operating System and should be ready to use. In case it is just detected as a new hardware, you need to install drivers for it that came with your bluetooth dongle (You can try Google to find the drivers).
Once drivers are installed, a bluetooth notification icon will appear in your system tray.
Right Click on it to access Settings (This may vary with your bluetooth dongle).
Make sure you have turned Discovery On (It allow others to see your computer).
Switch On the bluetooth on the mobile device.
