Questions on migration from VS2005 to VS2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi folks, As is the case every couple of years, I go through a nerve-wracking transition to a new development environment.  The thing is, I've become really comfortable with VS2005, and our small team has a very simple and effective approach to development.  I am nervous that VS2010 will negatively effect our productivity; but don't want to get too "far behind" toolset versions. So, that being said, I wanted to ask a few questions on what to expect when moving from VS2005 to VS2010 on an upcoming project.  Your feedback is highly appreciated. QuestionsCan we still use ObjectDataSources (in our ASPX pages) and access our static methods from them?  This has been my preferred way to access data from stored procedures in the database, and allows others to catch on quickly when jumping in to our projects. Are Masterpages and webcontent forms still the same in concept?  (e.g. Masterpages hold common elements such as CSS references, headers and footers, etc).My projects are very small (2-5 people).  Can we still use Visual SourceSafe to check-in and check-out files with Visual Studio 2010?  In all of our projects, we rely on Microsoft EntLib to reduce common data access tasks when accessing our database.  Is Microsoft EntLib still supported, or is it no longer necessary? Are GridViews (and secondarily, Repeaters) still used as

VS2005 calling VS2010 asmx service returns empty string


Anyone have any experience with this?

We are using VS 2005 for the front end, and vs 2010 for the web services part (asmx), not wcf yet.


Web service works just like the vs2005 when run locally, no problems.


Connecting to it from a test app returns an empty string. Connecting to a 2005 app doesn't!

Anyone run into this before or have a suggestion? Surely vs 2005 can connect to web services from a later version?






SSIS 2005 & 2008 BIDS and VS2005/2008 Will VS2010 work with either SSIS package?

I've read the old posts about having to have the BIDS version match the SSIS package version. My question is with VS2010 is there any change? Can I edit either of the old versions of SSIS packages in VS2010 or do I have to have 3 versions of Visual Studio/BIDS on my machine? TIA J

Conversion from VS2005 to VS2010



I have converted some of my applications from VS2005 or VS2008 to VS2010.  Mostly, that has been straightforward.  The only cases where I have had problems have been when I was using SQL Server Ce 3.5 databases (SQL Server or MS Access give no problem).  After conversion, I have an error message like:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'NotendurDataSetTableAdapters' does not exist in the namespace 'DreifingOR' (are you missing an assembly reference?) I:\VS2008\DreifingOR\RepNotendurForm.Designer.cs 90 28 DreifingOR

In one case, I tried to reconstruct the DataSet from scratch.  Then I got no more errors and everything was OK.  As some of my datasets are fairly complex, I would not like to do that in every case.

Thanks in advance.

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

There are several challenges when migrating documents to Microsoft SharePoint. While these challenges can be overcome, they are a real pain if the migration source, content and file systems are not SharePoint friendly.

VS2010 Professional .NET 4.0 Remote Debugging ASP Website Project


Trying to remote debug ASP website from VS2010 Pro to Windows Server 2003 machine.  Specifically, trying to debug a Web Service, but breakpoint says, "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document."  This happens for all compiled code though.  I have read this is due to missing PDB files and the work around is to manually copy them, as noted here.  Problem is, I cannot find any PDB files for my project, except referenced libraries, which I can remote debug.


  • web.config has <compilation debug="true">
  • Debugger is attached to wewp.exe process on remote server
  • Installed VS2010 remote debugger from DVD (as I can remote debug referenced libraries)

This is beyond frustrating.  I migrated my code from VS2008 .Net3.5 to VS2010 .Net4.0 to take advantage of the inherent multithreading framework.  Debugging works when using local host and was stable until deployment to test server.

Thanks in advance,


How can I be sure that my entire project is up-to-date and free of errors in VS2010?


Seems like a stupid question, but I will go to Build > Build Solution many many times and the build will succeed many many times, then I will put in a minor syntax error and the build will fail, BUT the build will not fail because of the minor syntax error; it will fail because of an unresolved type that I put in about twenty compiles ago. And then I will fix the minor syntax eror, and the compiler will still complain about the unresolved type. Here is my code:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="FTB" Namespace="FreeTextBoxControls" Assembly="FreeTextBox" %>
  <form runat="server">
  Hello World!!  

Pretty simple, really. I go to Buld > Build WebApplication1 and it runs OK. Now, if I put in a minor syntax error, such as substitute "forrrrrrrm" for "form" and then try to Build Solution, it complains not about the misspelled word, but about the FreeTextBox. And then if I correct the misspelled wird, it still complains about the FreeTextBox. Which leads me to believe that Building the Solution does not check absolutely 100% everything that needs to be checked. Is there a more thorough way of compiling a program that I need to use?

Linq qry with order by basic questions


I have never tried a group by with linq, now I do and I'm stuck.

,SUM( CASE WHEN tb_Mailer_smses.DLRStatus = 200 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) As [Delivered]
FROM tb_Mailer_mailing INNER JOIN
tb_Mailer_Smses ON tb_Mailer_mailing.Id = tb_Mailer_Smses.MailingId
WHERE tb_Mailer_mailing.ApplicationId = 1
GROUP BY tb_Mailer_mailing.Id

Is there some one who can me show me the convertion process ?

vs2010 web deployment project restarts w3svc even when restartwwwservice = false


We've updated some of our projects from VS2008 to VS2010.  When these projects are deployed the w3svc is restarted on the target machine, even when restartwwwservice = false in the vdproj file.


This was a problem in 2008 until SP1 (http://forums.asp.net/p/1300097/2534736.aspx).  Does this same problem exist in VS2010?


This is a major problem for us -  we need to be able to deploy projects without restarting IIS.


I've tried creating a new web deployment package and setting the restartWWWService field to false, but this still does a restart when it's installed.


Has anyone come across this problem in VS2010?

VS2010 WDP Optimization


We have moved our projects from VS2008 to VS2010(Ulitmate) but staying with .Net 3.5. In VS2008 we had a web deployment project that would compile the web project to a single dll and emit full debug information, adding the new web deployment project in VS 2010 to do the same the dll is produced along with the pdb but when a dev attempts to debug the variable comes back with "Cannot evaluate expression because the code of the current method is optmized".

In VS2008 we had a targets fix file which had the setting for the optimization but these don't appear to work under 10 (plus the targets file has grown).

Migration from ASP.NET 3.5 to 4.0


So, I just recently started to migrate my website from 3.5 to 4.0.   I am running in a bunch of issues but mainly 2 so far that have me stumped.

1. I have a custom URL rewrite module that I use, and it seems like it's being ignored to some extent.  It works fine if I run it through Visual Studio 2010 debugger, so I have no idea why it's not being fired. 

2. In some of my pages, I reference a BasePage class instead of System.Web.UI.Page.  The ones that reference this BasePage class works fine, but when I use System.Web.UI.Page, I get : Object reference not set to an instance of an object when I try to create an object.

Any ideas?
