Installation problems

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am installing SQL server 2005 in a different location than the default one specified. Half way through the installation I get the following error:   The file %CommonDir%\dte80a.olb could not be loaded. An attempt to repair this condition failed because the file could not be found. Please reinstall the program.   There are also other similar errors regarding files with .olb extensions. Can anyone explain what can be done in this case?   Thanks,  Hemant

.net framework 3.5 SP1 installation problems on Windows 7 x64

Hi everyone.  I'm having a big trouble installing .net framework 3.5 SP1 on my Windows 7 Professional (x64) OS.I've tried to install it but only thing it says is 'installation error' at the end of installation.  Strangely, it doesn't even give me an error code.I thought it could be having problem with previous versions of .net framework so I tried to varify this with the tool I've found on MSDN, and I only realized I couldn't verify any of .net framework product on my OS.  (neither of 2.0 3.0 or 3.5)This doesn't really make sense because I've freshly installed Windows 7 a week ago and not letting me install the program.  I've tried by doing web installation and tried to download the whole package and install it but still no luck.plus, i am not even sure if this varification program really works.. I wiped out 1.0 and 1.1 using cleanup tool and reinstalled 1.1, and it's still saying it is not installed.  And it even says i have 2.0 3.0 and 3.5 installed.......which i wasn't able to do..  any thoughts?[10/22/09,14:46:50] Beginning of new SetupVerifier activity logging session[10/22/09,14:46:50] Activity log file location: C:\Users\Jin\AppData\Local\Temp\setupverifier_main_10-22-09_14.46.50.txt[10/22/09,14:46:50] Error log file location: C:\Users\Jin\AppData\Local\Temp\setupverifier_errors_10-22-09_14.46.50.txt[10/22/09,14:46:50] Build created on October 19, 2009[10/22/

SQL Server 2005 Installation problems

I have SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition 9.00 1399.06 running on Windows XP.  I have upgraded to a Windows 7 64-bit computer, and have attempted to install SQL Server on this machine.  The install procedure failed, probably because I was installing from a copy of the install disks on a USB drive rather than the original CDs.  (I am carrying out the upgrade in a different country to my office and I did not want to risk losing the original install CDs). The install failed, and I realised that I had to install from CDs.  I then uninstalled all the SQL Server programs.  However, the uninstall procedure told me the program was already uninstalled.  However, when I try to reinstall from CDs, I am told that SQL Server Database Services, Analysis Servics, Notification Services and Integration Services are already installed. Therefore I am at an impasse.  I cannot uninstall the programs and I cannot reinstall the programs.  I have tried a registry cleaner (CCleaner) to get rid of registry settings and removed all SQL Server folders, but to no avail. How do I progress without having to reformat my entire computer?  I cannot believe that an installation procedure can be so limited - why isn't a reinstall option offered even if the computer records the programs to be present? I look forward to some suggestions on how to fix this. &n

Cannot Configure Sharepoint Server 2010/Installation Problems



I am having the exact problem with the Configuration failing. It appears that EmilyBen fixed the problem by uninstalling and "reimaging" her server. Would you please tell me how this is done and will I be able to reinstall without any problems, such as reusing my license key for the product?

Thanks, Lapt

Top .NET Performance Problems and how to avoid them

Every time I work with one of our .NET customers to help them with managing their application performance I come across the same problems as seen with other clients before: lots of ADO.NET queries, many hidden exceptions in core or 3rd party .NET libraries, slow 3rd party components, inefficient custom code

Visual Studio 2008 Memory problems

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!

Problems posting to a package


Hey Y'all

I'm currently creating a program that accesses a mysql package to add data to a few tables.  I'm currently getting an error that says  "

ORA-01403: no data found
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 42
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 177
ORA-06512: at line 1


These lines are


and 177:add_team_members(V_PROJECT_ID, V_START_DATE, v_FISC_YEAR, V_MEMBERS ,V_NUM_MEMBERS,'add');

Checking these variables in my asp.net page they are all receiving parameters.

Is there a  way to see what the database is actually receiving from the asp.net page?

Or is there another thing to be looking at?


URL Routing and Existing HttpHandler problems


Hello everyone,

I have a problem:

I am currently using 2 features: 

1. HttpHandler

Registering the path="res.aspx" verb="*"

2. URL Routing:

Registering with this pattern: "Company/Edit/{*companyId}","~/CompanyEdit.aspx"

In my CompanyEdit.aspx page, I used httphandler res.aspx to generate some images at client.

  • res.aspx?img=1
  • res.aspx?img=3

Now the problem is here, the page is load success with companyId = "12345", but when the images was loaded at client, it loaded the CompanyEdit.aspx again and show error with wrong id.  

I have debug and find the problem that because when image's urls were generated to client with url=res.aspx?img=1, url=res.aspx?img=3, the asp.net will understand that they are Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=1, Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=3 when it maps with URL Routing pattern.

=> So the CompanyEdit.aspx was load again with wrong id (id now is "res.aspx"). 

So, do you have any ideas to solve this problem, or other design.

Thanks, and best regard

ASP.NET 4 precompilation problems



We used ASP.NET precompilation (first manually, then with VS2008 WDP) with .NET 3.5 almost (see below) successfully.

After we moved to 4.0, the precompilation no longer works properly. The precompilation process itself succeeds, and the website works, but it consumes about twice the CPU it does without any precompilation. We use non-updatable precompilation (so webpages get compiled completely).

Our internal profiling tells us that most of the threads spend their time within variations of the following stack:


  System.Web.dll!System.Web.Compilation.BuildManager.GetVPathBuildResultFromCacheInternal(System.Web.VirtualPath virtualPath, bool ensureIsUpToDate) + 0xa2 bytes 
  System.Web.dll!System.Web.Compilation.BuildManager.GetVPathBuildResultInternal(System.Web.VirtualPath virtualPath, bool noBuild, bool allowCrossApp, bool allowBuildInPrecompile, bool throwIfNotFound, bool ensureIsUpToDate) + 0x5b bytes 
  System.Web.dll!System.Web.Compilation.BuildManager.GetVPathBuildResultWithNoAssert(System.Web.HttpContext context, System.Web.VirtualPath virtualPath, bool noBuild, bool allowCrossApp, bool allowBuildInPrecompile, bool throwIfNotFound, bool ensureIsUpToDate) + 0xcb bytes 

Problems converting VS 2003 project to VS 2008



I'm having problems converting a VS 2003 project to VS 2008 (tried 2005 as well, same problem). There are several problems;
a) I don't have VS 2003 installed.
b) The project is a web service, however I'm not sure what type of VS project it was created as.
c) The general knowledge about the project setup is..slim.

I get a error message using the conversion wizard, however, I'm not familiar with the tool and I cannot quite find any good information on Google for it, so I am left with a error message I do not understand.

Conversion Issues - myProject.csproj:
Unable to open the Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj'. The Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj' does not exist.

The web service is not intended to run on the dev machine, it is copied to a test or a prod server. However, I do not know how this was done previously. I'm thinking that in order to convert, it has to access the server on which it should run (which is set somehow in a config maybe). But that doesn't actually make any sence..

If anyone could shed light on this, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

.AspNet-Menu-Selected Problems


I am trying to have the selected item in the menu be noticeable different than the other items.  I am able to change the border as in the samples, but nothing else. I would like the selected font color to change as well as the background image / color.  Here is a sample page and style sheet.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
