Detect if code is running inside SQL Server.

Can managed code "detect" if it is running in the normal .Net CLR or the special SQL Server CLR? Is there some environment flag or field we can look at at runtime? Thanks Cap'n

Help with running external Process from button click

We need assistance with a portion of a major web application project scheduled to begin user testing within 10 days.  The troublesome part of the code calls an external application when a button is clicked in Web page.  When run from a command prompt or bat file, the external application, App.exe, runs perfectly producing the desired result.  We created a test page and a small console application, Con.exe, to test the button code with a known quantity.  The test application runs perfectly when the button in the Web page is clicked.  However when we change the code to run App.exe instead of Con.exe, the App.exe code will not execute.  We even tried creating a bat file to execute App.exe.  Like the exe, the bat file executes from the command prompt or when double-clicked, but fails to run when called as a process from the button click event.  Can anyone assist us?  Here is the C# code: (.Net 3.5 sp1) using System; using System.Collections; using System.Configuration; using System.Data; using System.Linq; using System.Web; using System.Web.Security; using System.Web.UI; using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts; using System.Xml.Linq; using System.Diagnostics;   namespace WebButtonTest {     public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page  &nbs

"The agent process was stopped while the test was running."


I have a solution that was originally created using VS 2008. I have quite a few unit tests that all passed when ran in VS 2008.

Yesterday I opened this solution in VS 2010 and converted it using the wizard. The solution built just fine, it runs just fine, BUT now all tests that access the db fail. I get the same error on every test (below).

"The runtime has encountered a fatal error. The address of the error was at 0x5b3b5ad7, on thread 0x19a4. The error code is 0xc0000005. This error may be a bug in the CLR or in the unsafe or non-verifiable portions of user code. Common sources of this bug include user marshaling errors for COM-interop or PInvoke, which may corrupt the stack."

In test classes that use ClassInitialize() and ClassCleanup() methods, all the tests fail. All tests fail with the same error, "The agent process was stopped while the test was running."  Tests in test classes that do not utilize ClassInitialize() and ClassCleanup() (these tests do not hit the database) all pass.

When this was a VS2008 project all 153 tests passed. No changes have been made to these tests, other than converting the project to a VS2010 project.

I've been playing around with one test class. I commented out the ClassInitialize() and ClassCleanup() methods. I rewrote one test me

Error running Document Aprpoval Process application sample


Hi all,

I download and install the application samples for Windows Workflow Foundation 4 on my machine. When I try to run the Document Approval Process example the ApprovalManager project runs fine but when I start the ApprovalClient.exe I run into problems. Can anybody help?

My environment is: Windows 7 64-bit with VS2010. The only change I have made is that the Express Db's name is '(local)' instead of 'localhost\SQLExpress' and I have changed this in the App.Config file.

Thanks in advance for your help.


Here is the error files:

How can you invoke a Workflow from within a running WorkflowApplication?


Our app has this concept of being able to "embed" workflows inside other workflows.  So, we have a custom activity called EmbedWF.  In the EmbedWF's execute handler, we are essentially loading the XAML workflow definition of a particular workflow ... and then we need to invoke it, or run it. 

The parent workflow is hosted in a WorkflowApplication instance ... it uses persistance, navigation, etc.  The idea is that when it executes and comes to an instance of an EmbedWF activity, we want to then kick off that other embedded workflow. 

Is there a good way to do this? 

I've tried this (from the Execute event of the EmbedWF activity):

          WorkflowInvoker wfi = new WorkflowInvoker(activity);
          IDictionary<string, object> resultArgs = wfi.Invoke(args);


But that's just causing the workflow application to hang when it's running UI activities.  I've also tried this:


Running external 32 process from 64 bit OS


I am using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start() to run an external program.

I am seeking to find the best method to handle running an extrnal 32 bit application from my C# project whether it is being used on a 32 or 64 bit platform.

The path to the the external program is configured centrally for all workstations. So at the moment when I invoke the Process.Start("C:\Program Files\MyProgram\MyProgram.exe"), it works when invoked from a 32 bit OS, but not on a 64 bit.

I know I could programatically detect the OS type and alter the file path accordingly, however I thought that there was a method where this was handle automatically.

i.e. When "C:\Program Files\MyProgram\MyProgram.exe" is invoked on 64 bit OS, the system will know to execute it from "C:\Program Files\MyProgram (x86)" instead.
