Not able to open sharepoint 2010 websites using visual studio 2010


Hi all,

When i m tryin to run a web application from wss Virtual directories im getting this following error and im using SP2010 with 8081 port and visual studio 2010.

For the past 2 days im googling and came across many solutions but nothin has fixed for me.

I tried creating website in 14/_layouts also but no progress.

 Here the scenario is

1) Sharepoint running at port 8081
2)Default port in my system is 80

 So i tried creating web applications under both 80 and 8081 virtual directories.
In both the applications when i am trying to run the following code,it throws the same error as follows:
SPSite oSite = new SPSite("http://Sitename:8081");
 The error is :

"The Web application at http://Sitename/ could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application".

So, anyone help me please. I am badly in need of this solution.

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.

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.

Download and Share Visual Studio Color Schemes

The good news is that Visual Studio allows you to completely customize the editor background and text colors to whatever you want - allowing you to tweak them to create the experience that is "just right" for your eyes and personality. You can then optionally export/import your color scheme preferences to an XML file via the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.
