Can Not load WPF project in Visual Studio 2005 on Win7 64 system, says "Project file not supported b

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)

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


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

Cannot create database diagrams for sqlexpress .mdf file in Visual studio server explorer



I've look around the forums but I can't get the solution for my problem. I've installed Visual studio 2010 with sqlexpress edition. Then I have renamed my computer. After renaming my computer I've deleted the directory C:\Users\uporabnik\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS. After restart, I have started VS2010, open Server explorer and I've added the connection to a new database. I've been able to add new tabels, bu when I've tried to add a diagram, it didn't work. In properties window od the database I saw, the the database owner was oldComputerName\username not newComputerName\userName. In sql server management studio I've reanmed the user oldComputerName\userName to newComputerName\userName. After attaching the database it worked fine.

I've returned to Visual studio 2010. When creating new database, the owner of new database is oldComputerName\userName. The next tip was renaming the  SQLServerMSSQLUser$ComputerName$SQLEXPRESS(and other names with sql...) in Local Users and gorups in Mange My computer. After restarting the compter I've got the same result. When creating new .mdf file in server explorer of visual studio, the database owner is oldComputerName\userName.<

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



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


Code behind file controls not defined/recognized when using WSPbuilder in Visual Studio 08


I am in the process of adding my custom aspx pages to the LAYOUTS folder(a folder I created) in a WSPbuilder solution in VS08. The problem I am having is when I build the solution it fails because the controls(Load, Textboxes, dropdown lists,etc) in the code behind file for the custom aspx pages say they are not defined. They all have a blue squiggly line and I get over 100 errors. Does anyone know what to do to get the WSP to recognize the code behind pages. Is there a setting or something I am missing.

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.

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.
