Blocking Issues Win 7 64 bit Framework 4

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I had this problem with my existing Windows 7 64 bit install, so I wiped everything and did a fresh install.  Before installing ANYthing else, I tried to install Framework 4 using this file: en_.net_framework_4_full_x86_x64_508940.

I still get the same blocking message which looks like this:

Blocking Issues:

The setup cannot run in compatibility mode. For more information, see the <A HREF="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=164156">Readme file</A>.

The .NET Framework 4 is not supported on this operating system. For more information, see the <A HREF="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=164156">Readme file</A>.

I really need this resolved.  Can anybody help?

Framework.net 3.5 and connected issues

Hello, I was toying around with some private servers, and then removed them and some software. After that, framework.net 3.5 was messed up. I uninstalled it, and then tried to reinstall it. It said I can't reinstall it without turning some things off in windows features. When I try to, it says its unable to turn them off. Dell datasafe is also having problems since then. Have done a system restore, and it won't fix it. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Datetime issues in Entity Framework in subqueries


I'm bonking my head against the wall trying to resolve this.

I've got three tables - Widgets, Users, and Subscriptions. I have a one-to-many reference set up between Users and Subscriptions since users can have multiple subscription, and a many-to-one between Widgets and Users.

What I'm trying to do is populate a gridview of widgets. Widgets have (only) one user, and those users may or may not have a subscription that's in the same category as that widget. So I've got

Widgets has a category_ID and user_ID (the owner)

Users have a user_ID and a name

Subscriptions have an expiration date, category_ID, and user_ID

Now before in LINQ to SQL I was doing something like

from c in dataContext.Widgets
let sub_days_left = (from d in dataContext.subscriptions
  where d.category == c.category
  && d.user_table.user_ID == c.user_table.user_ID
  select d.expiration_date).Single()
select new
  days_left = sub_days_left == null ? 0.0 : (sub_days_left - DateTime.Now).TotalDays

So I'm converting this all to Entity Framework and obviously TotalDays can't be used. So I'm trying to figure out how to accomplish this. I don't want to do an .AsEnumberable or .ToList() so that I can use Linq

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.
