ASP.net Web Site Administration Tool. An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page a

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have just installed Visual Studio 2010 trial. Previously I have been using Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express. Now every time I try to invoke the ASP.net Cofiguration tool either via the icon or through the Project File Menu item, I get the error message "An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again." I am trying to develop a bog standard Silverlight Business Application. There are no other diagnostics. Is there anywhere I can look for more clues or anything else to do to alleviate the problem? or is this something peculiar to the trial version I am using?   I also think it might have something to do with the fact that I have created this Silverlight Business App on a directory on my D: drive and not the normal, default c: drive path and maybe the web sit admin tool is looking somewhere else. Could this have something to do with it? If so what is my remedy?   Help please.....

Hi, I am new to VWD and i am trying to use the Provider Configuration in the ASP.net Web Site Administration tool to configure my Web site management data. When ever i select the "Select a single provider for all site management data" there is only one provider "AspNetSqlProvider". When i select "test" it give me the following error message: "Could not establish a connection to the database. If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider." I have the aspnet_regsql to create a DB, my IIS is already installed and enable but the VWD ASP.net Web Site Administration tool refuse to connect to my SQL DB.What may be the problem and how can i rectify it.Thanks

Site Settings - Page Layouts and Templates Error


I'm getting an error page when trying to reach Page Layouts and Templates page from site settings on one of the sites in our collection.  When the user clicks on Site Settings -> Modify all site settings -> Page Layouts and Site Templates an error page is displayed with the message: Data at the root level is invalid.

ASP.NET web administration tool error


Hi everyone,

I done Googling and I know where could be the problem is but I dun feel like fixing it without knowing what I am doing exactly. I have this error "An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again." whenever I try opening asp.net web administration tool. Normally, when I click the button, VS2010 will automatically open the page on the browser just like I normally run other websites. However, it ain't happening here, so I manually called the page like "localhost:[port]/asp.netwebadminfiles" sth like that but doing so, lead to that problem. Most people suggest that weird characters shouldn't be in the path like whitespace and other special characters. In my case, my project file is in Documents and Settings/My Documents/ something like that. I am not sure I should change those file paths or not. Please advice me if there's an easier way to fix it. thanks all.

I get the following when I try to manage access rules in the ASP.NET Web Site Administration Tool.  Does anybody have idea why this might be anf how to fix?

An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again.

The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Invalid postback or callback argument. Event validation is enabled using in configuration or in a page. For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them. If the data is valid and expected, use the ClientScriptManager.RegisterForEventValidation method in order to register the postback or callback data for validation. at System.Web.UI.ClientScriptManager.ValidateEvent(String uniqueId, String argument) at System.Web.UI.Control.ValidateEvent(String uniqueID, String eventArgument) at System.Web.UI.WebControls.LinkButton.RaisePostBackEvent(String eventArgument) at System.Web.UI.WebControls.LinkButton.System.Web.UI.IPostBackEventHandler.RaisePostBackEvent(String eventArgument) at System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(IPostBackEventHandler sourceControl, String eventArgument) at System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(NameValueCollection postData) at

Cannot Access Security Tab in ASP.NET Web Site Administration Tool


As the title suggests, I am having difficulties accessing the security tab. The error I keep receiving is "Unable to connect to SQL server database." I try to choose a data store and the only option I am given is AspNetSqlProvider. When I click "Test," it tells me to launch aspnet_regsql, configure the database, then come back and try it again. After configuring it to use AspNetSqlProvider, I still get the same persistent error.

I am using Visual Studio Team System 2008 and SQL Server 2005. Any help is appreciated.

404 Page Not Found Error When Trying to Create a Site From a Custom Site Template


I just moved a site collection from a one server to another, and now I can't make copies of my sites using custom site templates.

The details of my site structure are in the next paragraph, in case they are relevant.
On the original server, I created custom templates for my sites, and checked the Include Content checkbox
when creating the templates. Everything works perfectly on that server. When I moved the whole site collection to another
server using stsadm backup/restore everything was there, including my customized web parts. But now I can't create new sites
from templates - and I'm I'm not trying to use templates created on the original server. I'm creating new templates on the new
server. It successfully creates the templates, but when I try to create a new site from one of those templates, I get a
"HTTP 404 Page Not Found" page. It succeeds in creating the new site, and the new site shows up in my navigation bar,
but when I click on the new site, I get a "404 Page Not Found" page.

On the original server, I created one top level site for my whole department. Under that, I have one subsite for each of our
external clients. Under each of those, I have one subsite for each project for that client. I used a Team site as my starting
point at each of the 3 leve

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Handling 404 page not found with Error page

Retrieving a variable from a previous page



I'm looking to have a search page where a user will select an item from a listview, then then taken to another page that wil display data based on their original selection.

A user will type in a string and be presented with a list of usernames that are like that string, when they select a user name who's profile they would like to view I would like the page that they're taken to, to be that users profile.

How would I transfer the variable from the search page to the profile page, and when I work on the profile page, how can I access that variable?
