External RuleSet editor basic

RuleSet Service"   As described in here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb472424.aspx, I am trying to add PolicyActivities.dll to Toolbox. But it is not adding up in toolbox. I tried the same thing: Right-click the toolbox and select Choose Items (this may take a while). When the Choose Toolbox Items dialog appears, click the Activities tab. Browse to the PolicyActivities assembly in the ExternalRuleSetToolkit solution and click Open . Ensure that the PolicyFromService activity is selected in the Choose Toolbox Items dialog and then click OK . The activity should now appear in the toolbox in the RuleSetToolkitUsageSample Components category How to add?

Where to download External RuleSet Toolkit from?

Hello, I want to use WF rule in my ASP.Net 3.5 application without the need to have workflows. I found quite a few articles that explains how it can be done. Most of the articles refers to "External RuleSet Toolkit" to add\edit\delete rules outside of Visual Studio. Most of the articles refers to http://wf.netfx3.com/files/folders/rules_samples/entry309.aspx which is a dead link. I also searched google and found the article on MSDN that discuss about this at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb472424(v=VS.90).aspx . I downloaded samples from the link at the top of the page. It contains many samples &  applications for WCF & WF but what I need is ( "External RuleSet Toolkit") missing here. I am not able to find the download location of the sample. Could anyone point to the correct location of the "External RuleSet Toolkit"?   Thanks, Chetan

Basic CMS or Web Editor


Hi All

I am looking for a really basic CMS/Web Editor which will allow people to log in and edit the main text of a web site, maybe add a page, hyperlinks, pictures etc but not change the design at all.

I have looked at Kentico and DNN etc but they all seem far to much for what I ideally want. I develop sites in Visual Studio and want to continue with that but would either like some suggestions of customisable but Open Source fairly basic CMS's. Alternatively maybe someone could even point me in the direction of tutorials, good books, etc on how to go about creating my own.

Are they fairly easy to create from scratch?

Many Thanks


WCF Tutorial - Basic Interprocess Communication

What the heck is WCF? For a long time, I couldn't tell you exactly what it was. And honestly, I still don't think I can. WCF is such a broad concept that it's hard to boil down into a concise explanation. When I finally started reading about it, and getting beyond the concepts, things started to clear up. That's what today's tutorial is about - cutting through all the concepts and just use WCF to build a basic server and a basic client.

 I format lines in a .aspx file (source view) the way I can use them, and if I switch to design view or view in browser or debug, the many lines get reformatted to flow all onto one line.

Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!

Handling external C++ exceptions


Hi. I'm working in a application that uses an external .Dll developed in C++ language. According the business rule, the .Dll can throws one exception if it found a error. My question is if it's possible handle or catch a exception throwed by the C++ dll? The try/catch doesn't works. Bellow there's the code I'm using to call the C++ dll.

        public extern static IntPtr LoadLibrary(string lpLibFileName);

        [DllImport("kernel32", CharSet = CharSet.Ansi)]
        public extern static IntPtr GetProcAddress(IntPtr hLibModule, string procName);

        public extern static bool FreeLibrary(IntPtr hLibModule);

        private delegate void DllMethodCallBack(string param1, string param2);

        public void CallDllMethod(string param1, string param2)

Editor's Note: Does Your Program Smell Like Bacon?


When building your program, are you content with "good enough"? If so, your expectations are fatally low.
