Can't add MDF file to Visual Studio 2010 Silverlight example project.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

I have Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.  And I've downloaded and installed Sql Server 2008 R2 Express.

I'm going through a Silverlight trainging module and using the 

Silverlight Business Apps: Module 2 - WCF RIA Services

example application.  The database included (as an .mdf file) won't attach in the project.  I get this:

"Connections to SQL Server database files (.mdf) require SQL Server 2005 Express or SQL Server 2008 Express to be installed and running on the local computer.  The current version of SQL Sever Express can be downloaded at the following URL:......"

But of course, I have the most recent version.  Now I did have SQL Server 2005 Express Edition installed before and it wasn't working either.  I got a different error concerning the version of the .mdf file.  In an attempt to resolve this I un-installed the 2005 version.  Now I've got a functioning default instance of Sql Server, but I notice it's not listed as .\SqlExpress as the 2005 version was.

Can someone help me get this working?  Do I need to change the name of the SQL Server instance in order to for Visual Studio to be able to attach?

I also can't attach the file using SQL Server Management Studio, but I think that's because the file has the path to the Log file somehow

Dear all I am facing an issue in creating new wpf project or loading a WPF project in Visual studio 2005. I have installed Visual Studio 2005 Service pack - 1 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=bb4a75ab-e2d4-4c96-b39d-37baf6b5b1dc&displaylang=en) but still I can not see the option for wpf project  while creating a new project. Generally we can see WPF listing under item File -->New-->Project--> ".Net Framework 3.0" in VS 2005. I have few WPF project and when i try to load them it says "Project file not supported by this Installation". My System Config is given below: OS: Windows 7 (64 Bit) VS: Visual Studio 2005 with Service Pack 1 .Net Framework: 3.5 (By default inbuilt in Win7 OS)   I am suspecting something bugging related to .Net framework 3.0 in Win7. We have one option in control panel to alter .NetFramework 3.5 under "Turn Windows Features on or Off" but there I can not see something related to 3.0 :-(.   Kindly suggest how can I load my existing project and how can enable option to create new wpf Projects.   I saw few solutions suggested by people on following Thread bt most of them related to Windows XP or Vista: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vswpfdesigner/thread/06cf7bca-982c-44cf-aec9-99cf399b3000 Do someone has solution for Windows 7 (64 bit OS)

Improving the Start-up Performance of the WPF and Silverlight Designer in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

  

IMPORTANT NOTE: the Beta and Release Candidate builds of Visual Studio 2010 are now obsolete, since Visual Studio 2010 has now released to manufacturing.

See http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/download

___________________________________________________________

NOTE: The Release Candidate and RTM builds of Visual Studio 2010 does not need this configuration change

This post is to let you know about a configuration change (registry switch) which you can use to improve the startup performance of the WPF and Silverlight Designer in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.

Important:
1. Since this was a late-breaking change, you may experience some instability or increased Virtual Memory usage in some Visual Studio scenarios when using it. If you see such instabilities, please try removing the configuration change, and let us know about the problem you saw (you can do this by replying to this posting or by raising a bug on Connect).

2. You should only make this configuration change if you are a regular user of the WPF and Silverlight Designer, and are experiencing poor performance with it.

3. This configu

Error to Add a Database to a Visual Studio 2010 Project via the App_Data Folder

  

I am trying to add a new database via the App_Data Folder and I receive an error described below.

When I attempt to add ANY TYPE OF SQL SERVER DATABASE through the App_Data folder I receive this error "Connections to SQL Server Files (*.mdf) require SQL Server Express 2008 to function properly.  Please verify the installation of the component or download from the URl."

I can create a db via SQL Server Mgmt Studio, it connects fine, and I can see tables.

Visual Studio- Server Explorer connects fine to the Database, I can see the tables.

Im running XP SP3 w/ Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer.  I had previously removed SQL Server Express.

Why cant I access the database within my project, when Im able to connect to this fine within Visual Studio Server Explorer?

Why visual studio does not generate .vb file when, publishing project into normal directory other th

  

Hello,

I am using visual studio 2005,

When I publish my asp.net project into C:\Documents and Settings\temp\example, then it publish successfully,but into  C:\Documents and Settings\temp\example location , I dont see default.aspx.vb file. I do see Bin directory, PrecompiledApp.config file, webconfig file.

I am not sure , why it does not generate default.aspx.vb file (may be instead it is created PrecompiledApp.config file)

or is this because I am not publishing file into virtual directory.

Give me some advice on this.

Thank you
