Need help deploying SP2010 Document Converter using Visual Studio 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have created an SP 2010 Document Converter app, which seems to work fine in all respects except it doesn't seem to be converting documents in SharePoint. I think there is a problem with the way that I'm deploying the converter executable to the server, but I am having trouble finding the specific issue.

Some notes:
* SP 2010 sees the document converters in my Elements.xml file and is making them available in Sharepoint.
* When I tell SP2010 to convert a document using one of my Converters, I can tell that the service is trying to do *something* in the Central Administration console (job shows up with progress bar and sits there for a while). I have no idea what it's actually doing during that time though.
* All of my executable and executable DLLs have been defined in VS2010 as having "Application Resource" Deployment Types - not sure if this is right because the MS SP2010 SDK info doesn't seem to give much guidance on this subject. VS 2010 is deploying all of the appropriate executable files to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\resources\PDFDocumentService\DocumentConverter\". I have no idea if this is a sensible location for document converter executable files. When I try to run my executable in this location from the command line, it works fine.

My guess is that there's a disconn

Migrating changes from the Development to Production Site (SP2010, SPD and Visual Studio 2010)

Trying to find the best (least error-prone) approach to updating a live site containing content (based Documents and Tasks mainly) with changes. This got to be a common issue - a Development environment containing new features needs to be migrated over to production but the existing data and workflows with the associated tasks should be preserved. I found this thread http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/sharepointdevelopment/thread/2C524797-9737-4D11-BE19-3E407C5C83CE which seems to provide a rather negative take on a tool-based approach but it's for older Sharepoint. Anything improved since then?

Deploying SSRS Reports from Visual Studio 2010 to Report Manager 2008


Our Report server is using Report Manager 2008. Previously I would load reports to it that I created via BIDS. Now I have to use VS 2010. I see that I can build and deploy reports there. Can I send it from VS 2010 to the REport manager 2008 on the other machine? I should add that now i have to develop on laptop only before i was on the server.

If not what are my options? I recall that vs 2005 objects were not taken in Report manager 2008.

Deploying custom project workflow using visual studio 2010


Hi All,

After i developed a custom project server workflow using vs 2010, i tried to deploy it using this article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff459292.aspx and everything done great (Add, Install and Activiate) .. when i tried to debug from VS 2010 i got this error while deploying the project:

Error 6 Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Feature with Id 'c34364d9-0323-4e46-98c1-d74f638e6c7d' is not installed in this farm, and cannot be added to this scope.
  0 0 WorkflowProject1

i'm pretty sure that the Guids are the same ... and i got the same error when i tried to activate the feature from VS 2010 directly

here is my feature xml (inside VS 2010)

ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 Web Development Beta 2 Overview

Many exciting changes for ASP.NET are coming in the .NET Framework version 4. This document gives an overview of many of the new features that are included in the Beta 2 release of the .NET Framework 4 and of Visual Studio 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

This is a big deal. This isn't ".NET 3.6" - there are a lot of improvements of .NET 4, and it's not just "pile on a bunch of features so you get overwhelmed." I've been working with and talking to many of the teams involved and even though it's a cheesy thing to say, this is a really customer-focused release.

ASP 4 - Whirlwind Tour around .NET 4 (and Visual Studio 2010) Beta 1

There's a lot of stuff that's new and added in .NET 4, but not in that "overwhelming-I-need-to-relearn-everything" way. More in that, "oh, this is way easier/simpler now" way. Like, moving data around with ADO.NET DataServices is easy, binding with client templates is easy, there's F# if you need it, the "dynamic" keyword if you need it, Silverlight's already installed, oh, and the parallel stuff will freak you out, but in a good way.

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D
