What are the chances that M$ will ever fix any of the bugs in this mess?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
my guess is never.  I am getting the same memory errors that i got the last time i (regretfully) used it 4 years ago.

Debugging: Root Out Elusive Production Bugs with These Effective Techniques


Errors happen. But in production, error logs often provide little or no help in pinpointing the exact line of code in which the problem originates. You can't usually isolate the root cause by modifying code in a production environment because recreating the exact same environment is very difficult due to the large number of potential software and hardware configurations. This article provides some concrete steps you can take to get at the heart of the problems in your production code.

Server 2008 R2 -> Failed to decrypt using provider 'RsaProtectedConfigurationProvider'. Error mess


So I am using the aspnet_regiis.exe tool to encrypt sections of the web.config in my asp.net applications and services.  I have done this for years successfully on Windows Server 2003 (IIS 6).  However I just moved some apps over to Windows Server 2008 R2 (with IIS 7.5) and I am now receiving the following error at runtime:

"Server was unable to process request. ---> Failed to decrypt using provider 'RsaProtectedConfigurationProvider'. Error message from the provider: Bad Data."

Now I am quite familiar with this process and am stumped at what I have missed this time around.  I have done ALL of the following which typically suffices for the process on the server. PLEASE READ ALL AND DO NOT PROVIDE RESPONSES OR LINKS FOR THINGS I HAVE ALREADY DONE Thanks!!  Wink

  1. Imported the keys to the server using aspnet_regiis -pi  Result: Success
  2. Given FULL permission (using -full switch) using aspnet_regiis -pa to ALL of the following accounts  Result: Success
    1. Microsoft .Net Framework needs deleting and starting over because it is a mess

      Hello, I have a Hewlet Packard Computer and it is about 10 years old. Recently I was having problems with it and so I did a HP Systems Restore on it. The Compurer Repair man came to my house later and said that my computer only had the Service Pack 1 on it and that it needed more, so he added Service Pack 3 I think it was. Anyway then something else happened later and everything on my computer wasnt acting right again. I had tried adding the Microsoft .Net Framework stuff to it, and I knew absolutely nothing about it all, in fact, I wasnt even aware of it being on my computer till the Computer man had come here. I dont even know what it is for. But anyway, at one point I had tried to just remove it all off my computer entirely, going to my Control Panel and Add/Remove Programs, then I tried some kind of a Clean-up tool but I dont think I knew what I was doing. The whole thing is a mess and this morning it was acting up again. Can you please help me to be able to get this all off my computer completely then to add it properly back onto my computer? Also, I noticed the little yellow shield on the bottom right corner of my computer keeps saying Ive got one update, then it tries to add it, and I think its the Framework thing and it fails. It says it is installing Framework 3.5 then gives me a Fatal Execution Error OX7927f276 Then it pops up saying something about a debugger. Cou

SSIS script component bugs at around 10k rows

I'm trying to load a dimension table from a tab delimited file to a parent-child table. I have made a script like this: public override void Input0_ProcessInputRow(Input0Buffer Row) { String level0 = null, level1 = null, level2 = null, level3 = null, level4 = null, level5 = null; while (!Row.EndOfRowset()) { if (Row.Description_IsNull || Row.Description == "") { if (!Row.NextRow()) break; continue; } if (!Row.Level0_IsNull) { Row.ID = Row.Level0; Row.ParentID = null; level0 = Row.Level0; Row.Description = Row.Description; } else if (!Row.Level1_IsNull) { Row.ID = Row.Level1; Row.ParentID = level0; level1 = Row.Level1; Row.Description = Row.Description; } else if (!Row.Level2_IsNull) { Row.ID = Row.Level2; Row.ParentID = level1; level2 = Row.Level2; Row.Description = Row.Description; } else if (!Row.Level3_IsNull) { Row.ID = Row.Level3; Row.ParentID = level2; level3 = Row.Level3; Row.Description = Row.Description; } else if (!Row.Level4_IsNull) { Row.ID = Row.Level4; Row.ParentID = level3; level4 = Row.Level4; Row.Description = Row.Description; } else if (!Row.Level5_IsNull) { Row.ID = Row.Level5; Row.ParentID = level4; level5

Bugs in most Updated version of AjaxControlToolKit???

Hi everybody, I have an ASP.NET AJAX application, which is using .NET Framework 3.5. I have  visual Studio 2008 installed on my developer machine. The AjaxControlToolKit dlls I have installed in my system right now come from the file "AspNetAjaxLibraryBeta0911.zip". The released date of the dlls in the file is 12/29/2009. Exploring the AjaxControlToolKit download site, I found that there is a more updated version, which release date was April 12th 2010. I tried to update the AjaxControlKit.dll version to the newest one. I did this creating a path in my system: c:\Program Files\AjaxControlToolKit\WebForms\Release\ then I placed there the new AjaxControlToolKit.dll and AjaxControlToolKit.pdb files. Then I right clicked on the name of the dll inside my Bin directory in my application and selected "Update Reference". After I did this I tested the application and is giving me Jscript error messages like: "htmlfile: member not found", or Microsoft Jscript Runtime error "lenth is null or not an object". I don't get these error messages if I come back to the previous version of the AjaxControlToolKit. Can any body give me an advice on this? It doesn't make sense to me as the new version of the AjaxControlToolKit is supposed to be better in terms of fixing the bugs of a previous Beta dlls. Thanks a lot,   Al              

Windows 7 and WPF HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() a mess


I usually develop WPF in XP. I have an application that is trying to access a web source in a thread that is not available.

I know the source is not there and thats OK.  HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()  is in a TRY block and the exception is being caught

then I execute a System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1500); and try again. Under XP it all works properly under windows 7 DISASTER.

My app stops responding. Gets cloudy..

FUMES are shooting out that the same app acts completely different.

I am wondering if its because I HAD to compile X86 and because there are NO ACCESS drivers? Also I only have 2010 loaded on the machine.

Maybe there is massive conflict there. BUT utter lock up is NO help at all. Grasping at straws looking for ideas.




Role Provider mess up Welcome [username] on wss


Hi,I have a role provider, and this is how i wrote for my GetRolesForUser(string username), now the problem is on the wss page, on the top right corner, it shows Welcome "System Account" Instead of the logged in user. And I checked it, after RunWithElevatedPrivilage, The CurrentUser is System Account,How can I make the welcome to show the current logged user?

Thank you

public override string[] GetRolesForUser(string username)
      //string[] s = ws.GetRolesForUser(username);
      //return s;
      List<string> domainGroups = new List<string>();
      var webContext = SPContext.Current.Web;


          using (SPSite site = new SPSite(webContext.Site.ID))
            //siteEval = site.OpenWeb(site.

Cleaning up content type mess


one of my coworkers added some columns to the base Document content type and now all of the docs in our site collection have these and any new doc library gets these columns. I want to remove these custom columns from the Document type and put them into site specific content types. Any suggestions on how we can fix this mess would be greatly appreciated.

How did they link directly to views in the Bugs Database Template?


I just created a site using the SharePoint Bug Database Template.  I would like to know how, in the Quick Launch, they are able to link directly to pages that display different views of the bugs list.  My understanding is that the only way to do this would be to create a blank .aspx page, and drop a web part on it that shows the list, then in modifying the web part, tell it what view to display.  I did this in another site I built.

However, in the Bugs site, I don't see any indication that it was done that way.  When looking at All Site Content I don't see a list of web pages (with the webpart) that display these views.  Also, the modify webpart drop down arrow is not visible on any of the pages.

Was this done in a different way on this site template?  I'd be grateful if anyone could tell me how it was done, so that I might use that method next time around.

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

Bugs found in Microsoft Ribbon for WPF



Where can I report bugs for the Microsoft Ribbon for WPF?

The bugs I currently want to report are...

1) Adding a submenu to a RibbonApplicationMenuItem or RibbonApplicationSplitMenuItem shows large images, but uses the small image 16x16 to render a 32x32 image, which makes the image look very ugly.

2) It does not seem to be possible to use a large image, 32x32, in a RibbonMenuItem, control template is locked to 16x16.

3) An InRibbonGalleryControl would be really nice!


Is there a workaround for these bugs?

When will an update of the Microsoft Ribbon for WPF be available?



2 bugs in Razor view engine


I found 2 bugs in Razor view-engine.

1. I can't write any inline-templates in _ViewStart, cause

WriteLitralTo is not defined in ViewStartPage class

2. Translator inserts unnecessary whitespace writes

For ex:



Func<int, HelperResult> intFormatter = @<text>- @item -</text>;


That code translates to:

public class _ViewStart_cshtml : System.Web.Mvc.ViewStartPage {


public override void Execute() {

Func<int, HelperResult> intFormatter =item => new

System.Web.WebPages.HelperResult(__razor_template_writer => {

 WriteLiteralTo(@__razor_template_writer, " ");

 WriteLiteralTo(@__razor_template_writer, "- ");

                WriteTo(@__razor_template_writer, item);

 WriteLiteralTo(@__razor_template_writer, " -");






CS0103: The name 'WriteLiteralTo' does not exist in the current context

WriteLiteralTo is defined in System.Web.WebPages.WebPageBase, but

StartPage does not inherited from it.


Why these unnecessary WriteLiteralTo calls (" ")? - there is no in my

code. And these unneces
