Thank You. string MappingCommand = MappingCommandPath + "Mapping.exe /FileName " + HL7FileServerIn + FName;       Process p = Process.Start(MappingCommand);On the debugger I get MappingCommand as: "\\\\csi-myserv-dkv\\DKV\\Projects\\CSIAccessioning\\Altova\\Mapping\\bin\\Debug\\Mapping.exe /FileName C:\\Orders\\ORM2.hl7"    On command prompt when I copy past the above MappingCommand and remove the escape sequences, the following command runs fine.\\csi-myserv-dkv\DKV\Projects\CSIAccessioning\Altova\Mapping\bin\Debug\Mapping.exe /FileName C:\Orders\ORM2.hl7Your help is highly appreciated.

CrystalReportsException: Load report failed - The system cannot find the path specified

I recently added a Crystal Report to a web application within Visual Studio 2010.  I'm using the Push method with a DataSet, and have a CrystalReportViewer control added to an aspx page.  When trying to test the report locally I'm getting an exception when performing the data binding on the CrystalReportViewer control...-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Server Error in '/TestDevelopment' Application.

This is a very old prolem that i am getting to. First off I went through anywhere from 4 to 6 or more sessions with a Microsoft TECH and it even escalated a couple of levels of TECH support to boot. I can't remember the details specifically. I do know that I've started with gound up (installed/uninstalled NET Framework versions) installs to where I have all the versions installed. The Service doesn't start either automatically nor manual. I tried the patience of the Support people to fix this last error at that time.

I am starting anew to get the NET Framework Service to work properly . I hope I am in the right support forum.


How do I find the file path from a namespace.class name?


I'm programatically looking ito a .aspx file and getting the file class name declared in its CodeBehind. For example, when analyzing myFile.aspx I read in its Page Directive and found its CodeBehind equals "myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb". Then I use the code below:


Dim Assm As System.Reflection.Assembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadFrom("myApplication\bin\myApplication.dll")
Dim ClassType As Type = Assm.GetType("myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb")
' myBaseType = "myApplication.Forms.BasePage"
Dim myBaseType As System.Type = ClassType.BaseType


Now I want to read the BaseFile (class = myApplication.Forms.BasePage). However, to read in this file, I need I need to get its full path instead of its namespace.class hiearchy. In this case, the BasePage is wrapped in a different namespace declaration thus I cannot just change the '.' to '\' in order to get the path.

How can I get the path of BasePage so I can read it? Thank you - Frank

Could not find a part of the path ... Occuring even if it's not required

I have a windows application which will be installed on a client PC. However, when the user tries to run the app, an error is thrown up.   Could not find a part of the path "C:\Documents and Settings\$username$\Application Data\$appName folder$\sample_log.txt   I looked in the code..but could not find any reference to the file named sample_log.txt . There's no code that creates this file. Although, I know, we had in the past created this file for testing purposes and then deleted the code.   Thank You    

Working with System.IO.Path static class

Hello everyone. Today, I was exploring the System.IO namespace in .NET 4.0 on an ASP.NET web application where I came to few changes, comparing with the previous versions of .NET, related to the System.IO.Path static class. The Path class contains the same method names in .NET 2.0, 3.5 as well as 4.0, only (in .NET 4.0) new overloads are added to System.IO.Path.Combine() method. In the following blog post, I will show the usage of few methods belonging to the System.IO.Path static class, as well as, the changes in Combine() method added in .NET 4.0. Besides the first method that is available in the previous versions for combining two string paths, now in .NET 4.0 you can combine unlimited strings to the path. Note: For testing purpose, on your web application root, create folders with name Files, Files/SubFolder, Files/SubSubFolder and add three text files: text1.txt (in Files), text2.txt (in Files/SubFolder), text3.txt (in Files/SubFolder/SubSubFolder).   Here are few examples:             string path1 = System.IO.Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("Files"), "text1.txt"); //this will give the path to %WEBAPP_ROOT%/Files/text1.text -             string path2 = System.IO.Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("Files"), "SubFolder", "text2.txt"); //this will give

Can't find System.Printing

Hello, I just installed the trial version of Visual C# 2008 Express Edition with SP1 and the Microsoft .NET 3.5 Framework. I have created a new project (console application) and need to use System.Printing in my project to access the print queue on my machine. However, System.Printing seems to be missing from my installation since I cannot see it in the drop down box that appears immediately after I type in 'System.' in the source file. Do I need some special project setting to include System.Printing? Am I missing something from my installation? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Anuj

I have a Java service running on WebSphere Application Server 7.0.  When I invoke the service using my WCF client, I get a 200 OK back in the trace, however my WCF client cannot process the signature in the response message.  I am getting the following error: Cannot find a token authenticator for the 'System.IdentityModel.Tokens.X509SecurityToken' token type.

Can't find the correct path on server


hello, i have developped an application localy that can browse excel files, pictures etc... and display them, the thing is, that on my PC when a user upload a picture it will be saved under local disk C:\ and to browse it i will access C:\idpicture and display it, that easly. the problem is when i deployed the application on iis 7.5 it's not working anymore giving me an error saying that the path is wrong or the name of the file is changed etc...

i have understood that i can't put it on local disk C:\ because the picture or the excel file must be shared on all the PC's, so i have created a map network drive (PUBLIC X:\) which is availble on all PC's, that way i will browse in X:\idpicture but that is not working aswell.


my question is: what is the proper path to use to access file on the server (PUBLIC X:\ or C:\) using IIS?

Cannot find custom tool 'SharePointWebPartCodeGenerator' on this system.

When trying to make a change to a web page in a Web Part when I complete the change and attempt to save the ascx file this error shows up as a warning in the Visual Studio 2010 Error List.  When I deploy the Web Part nothing has changed.  I am assuming it is due to this error.  The question here is how does this, the SharePointWebPartCodeGenerator, get installed?  I already uninstalled and reinstalled SharePoint 2010 Server and the SharePoint SDK.
