Visual Studio 2010 on windows 7 64 bit



Today i have xp pro with visual studio 2005 and going to change to windows 7 with 64 bit.

Will upgrade to Visual Studio 2010 with 64 bit.

Is that a problem going from visual stuidio 2005 (32bit) to visual studio 2010 (64bit) ? Anything i should think about or if anybody had problems with this ?

The server I will deploy my webapplication is windows server 2003 (32bit).
Will it be ok to deploy webapplications that are build in vs2010 (64 bit) but deployed on a server with 32 bit ?

Maybe this is obvious to some people but I have to ask cause I'm not sure about this.

Thanks in advance

Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Document Library Settings with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in in

I have a client who has recently upgraded their SharePoint system to Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in integrated mode. I have configured reporting services and am able to deploy reports to SharePoint. The client created a document library before the upgrade to WSF 2010. I need to add Report Builder 3.0 to the New Document menu and found the following article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326289.aspx "Allow management of content types?" is set to yes under the advanced document library settings. The problem is that when I try to "add from existing site content types" the reporting services content types are not in the list. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Windows XP, Visual Studio Express 2010 and SQL Server 2008 Express - How can I save modified columns



I am using c# in VS 2010 Express. I have a MDF database that I connect to through "Database Explorer". Database Explorer will not let me SAVE columns that I have modified. As I know in SQL Server 2008 full edition you can change the setting "Prevent saving changes that require table recreation" in Management Console to prevent this. I haven't got Management Console and can't see it in install.

How do I change this setting if I haven't got management console? Is it in Registry or Config File.



Visual C++ Runtime Library error when opening documents in Powerpoint 2010 from Sharepoint link



I posted this question on the Office Powerpoint forum and did not get much response so thought I would try here.   Here is the link to that post  http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/pptshare/thread/36a58d07-b1ad-4935-a14e-086dae8cb786

I'm running Windows 7 with Office 2010.  We have a Sharepoint 2007 server.  Whenever I click a link from our Intranet site I get the error "this application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.  Please contact the applications's support team for more information."  It asks if I want to open in safe mode and I say yes and it never opens. 

During testing I also find that if I have a blank powerpoint .ppt file that I try to save to the same document library on the same site it works fine, but if I try to save a blank .pptx file to the site I get the same runtime error. 

This does not happen on all powerpoint or office documents being opened from the Intranet.  If I boot to safe mode it works fine.    If I copy the files local they work fine.  Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks so much!!!

Windows Application Migration - Visual Studio 2008 to 2010 - The "GenerateResource" task failed unex

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express - installation on Windows Server 2008



We are trying to install VWD 2010 on a windows 2008 server. We already have installed the 2008 version as well as SQL 2005, 2008 and 2008 R2. The Web Platform installer is not installing VWD 2010 however.

At first it notified us that the OS does not allow it, after running tons of updates on the OS (some of which failed) it is still not doing it, not even donwloading it. The latest message simply asked us to post the error on the forum.

Has anybody had similar experiences? If so, how was it solved?



visual studio 2010 and 2008 ide on windows 7 64 bit seems to be blocked from reading the registry


I am using:
1. visual studio 2008 and visual studio 2010
2. windows 7 ultimate
3. 64 bit gateway
4. I am using a third party control that has been registered using regsvr32
5. its wrapper was created with 64 bit aximp
6. The code runs but  in design mode nothing shows:
Warning 1 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG))  0 0 

7.I used regedit and tried to give all the user's permission to read the registry entry for the item - didn't work.

8. The same code and situation works fine in windows vista home: which means  visual studio cannot read the registry on the windows 7 pc

What do I need to do

Windows form hanging when ran outside of Visual Studio 2010



I have a windows form that starts a background worker to grab data from a database and put it into a datagridview through a bound datatable. So a decent summary would be:

1. Main Thread: Get a load of order numbers

2. Main Thread: Start a background worker

3. Worker Thread: Go through the order numbers, getting order details and putting them in a datatable

    3.1 Worker Thread: Call my progresschanged method after each time we put order details into the datatable and force the form to update


And this is all fine. It works as expected. Everything is responsive, all the orders load into the view, etc etc. Program done. However, as soon as I run this outside of Visual Studio (so running the .exe in the debug or release folder) it hangs every time the last time it's going to call progesschanged.

So say there are 50 orders, after getting the details for order 50 and calling progresschanged the main thread locks up instantly. There are no errors reported, there is still free memory in the machine, and it works 100% of the time when running through VS.

I have no idea where to look to fix this.

seeking recommendations for running Visual Web Developer 2010 on Windows 7 without local administrat


All -

Please help.

I am seeking recommendations for running Visual Web Developer 2010 on Windows 7 without local administrator access.

Is there a "how to" somewhere that delineates the issues, etc, that come along with 

Is there some other access level, something higher than Power User but lower than Local Administrator, that can be used or created?

There seems to be a lot of places where glitches appear if one is trying to do development on a Windows 7 64 bit box with Visual Web Developer 2010 Express.

For example, without local administrator access, one cannot create a virtual directory in Windows 7 in IIS, which slows down testing, etc.

I am of the mind that developers should be allowed to run as Local Administrators, for expediency sake, etc.

What do you recommend to approach the situation if one must run at a user level lower than Local Administrator?

If you do not run as a Local Administrator when you develop at you corporate environment, then how do you workaround the matter?

If you do run as a Local Administrator when you develop at you corporate environment, then how did you get management to understand?

Please advise.

Thank you.

installing SQL Server 2005 on Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2010 already installed



Last year I had Vista on machine with Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005 running fine. Last week I decided to wipe the hard disk, install Windows 7 and make the move to Visual Studio 2010. I still need SQL Server 2005 to be able to test code for clients using this.

Anyway, Visual Studio 2010 Professional went on OK. This installed SQL Server 2008 Epxress.

I then try to install SQL Server 2005. I know that there is a compatibility problem, so following advice from other sources, I want to install it without running the server, then install SQL Server 2005 SP3. Then I should be up and running.


The problem is that even though I make sure the 'Start SQL Server' check box is UNchecked, part way through the installation it throws up an error saying it can't start the server and this part of the installation is unrolled.

I've tried running 'setup.exe SKUUPGRAGE=1' which gets rid of the only warning I was getting up to this point, but the setup seems to insist on running the server even though I tell it not to. So I don't get a chance to run SP3 on it.


I wonder if the problem is that SQL Server 2008 Epxress is already installed but can't see an easy way of uninstalling it. It doesn't appear as an uninstall option using the Visual Studio 2010 disk and if I look at uninstall programs I get the f
