Developing mobile web applications with Visual Studio 2008 and ASP.NET Mobile Controls

I have seen a lot of posts in this forum concerning the question how to develop mobile web applications with Visual Studio 2008. In VS 2008 the templates for Mobile Web Forms are missing and there is no more designer support for ASP.NET Mobile Controls. In the Your Websites, Our Passion! blog you can download a ZIP file with the templates compiled by Omar Kahn. And I found another interesting blog post about the Microsoft Mobile Device Platforms with a discussion when Mobile Controls should be used and when not.

.NET Configuration Tools (caspol.exe) with visual studio 2008 express?

Hello list, this is my very first question about .NET as I've started studying it only recently.
I've installed VS C# 2008 Express Edition and I wonder where to find .NET Configuration Tools (caspol.exe). It's generally mentioned to be reachable through Administration Tools, but it isn't there.

Someone says that the tool is shipped with .NET 2.0 SDK. Should I install it? How would this hurt my actual installations (VS 2008, .NET 3.5, etc.)?

thanks very much,

Problem installing SQL 2008 Tools with Visual Studio 2008 Team System Suite

I'm setting-up my development environment on a new laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I installed Visual Studio Team System (MSDN disk 4405)  and then VS 2008 SP1. These installed without error.

Next I installed SQL Express 2008, but had a problem with running the standard install from www.microsoft.com/express/sql/download - message stating that SQL 2008 with Tools was incompatable with SQL 2005 (which was installed as part of the VSTS 2008 install - instance SQLEXPRESS). Therefore, I used the custom install link on this webpage to install SQL Express 2008 with SP1 - X64. I selected the 'New Standalone Instal or Add Features' and it completed without error - instance MSSQLSERVER2008. I selected the install with SP1 because this seemed to be required for a PC with VS 2008 installed (see other threads), hoping that it would be possible to install the tools later. However, when I came to install the SQL Express 2008 Tools (custom install page install SQL Express 2008 with Tools) I hit the following problems:

1. I got message stating that there was a compatability issue which required me to run SQL 2008 SP1 after the install - funny, I had just installed SQL 2008 SP1!

Ignoring the message, I proceeded with the install sel

VSShellInstalledRule Error "Previous Releases of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008" Failed



I have had Visual Studio 2005 & 2008 on this machine in the past. Until yesterday I had visual studio 2010 Professional on this machine. Today, I do not have any version of visual studio on my machine AT ALL and I still get VSShellInstalledRule Error "Previous Releases of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008" Failures when I try to install SQL Server. I was totally astounded when this error appeared a week ago as I tried to install my Developer Edition of SQL Server 2008, quite simply because I had Visual Studio 2010 on this machine (until yesterday), not Visual Studio 2008. I could not upgrade to "SP1" as I have the more recent version, the BOL, forums and MSDN pages don't even consider that this might occur in VS 2010 or even once all versions are removed. At least I haven't seen any yet that do and believe me I have spent far too long looking!!!!!

So, currently, I don't have any Visual Studio on this machine, I can find no traces of visual studio of any version in the control panel applet "Programs & Settings". I could find that, despite uninstalling from the control panel applet "Programs & Settings" there were in excess of 50Mb of files left on the machine in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\ directory.  Hello!!! &

crystal report -visual studio 2008 dual axis chart (bar & line)


dear all, 

i use crystal report integrated with  vs.2008, and i want to make chart with dual axis (bar & line).

i have used bar chart and input the data with 2 values..

then in chart options > template, i activated the dual axis..

my question is, how i can change the 2nd value with line chart not bar chart??

i'd tried to find the right settings in "chart options" but still can't find the solution.

for information in "chart options" there are 4 sub menu : template, general,titles,grid..

i read in a tutorial there's more sub menu called "series" in crystal report (stand alone version)..

is it possible doing it in Crystal Report VS. 2008?

please,, i need your advice and solution..

Thanx before..
