downward compatibility - VWDx 2010 to VS 2003

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I'm a sporadic user of asp.net and VS.  Wrote an asp.net application using VS 2003 and haven't really touched it in a few years.  I now need to do some minor upgrades but I no longer have access to VS 2003.  I downloaded VWDx 2010.  Following questions:

1. I am assuming I can figure out how to import my old project and edit it in VWDx 2010.  But any pointers or thoughts would of course be appreciated.

2. Can I update the application in VWDx 2010 and still deliver it to my client and have them run it in in their current environment (which hasn't changed, I believe, from whatever was compatible with the app i developed in VS 2003)?  Any special things to look out for?  Would they need to upgrade their .net framework?

Thanks.  Sorry if I sound semi-ignorant.  Not really - just rusty.

Office 2010 will not open Office 2003 Documents on SharePoint

Going directly to a document in the document view and selecting any of them will present the Read Only/Edit prompt and when clicking Read Only Word or Excel 2010 depending on the document type will open to a blank page and just sit there. If you do a search and then click on the documents that are returned in the search results, it opens as expected.

MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010 Hybrid Upgrade Approach on Windows Server 2003 x64

There's some guidance circulating about upgrading to 2010 with a mix of In-Place and Database Attach upgrade methods. My Central Admin and SharePoint Web App are on a 64 bit server, but it's running on Windows server 2003 x64 and not on Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2. SharePoint Team Blog says Server 2008 or 2008 R2 is required for SP2010. If I want to do the hybrid upgrade approach, is it possible to first upgrade the OS to Server 2008 R2 on the server where my Central Admin and SP Web App runs?  Or will this break MOSS 2007?

SP 2007 to 2010 migration and compatibility


Will web parts written for SP2007 work in SP2010 or is it neccesary to re-write? The web parts concerned make extensive use of connection interfaces and tool parts.

SSAS 2008 R2 Cube being queried by Excel 2010 Pivot Table - 60x slower than with Excel 2003!


SQLServer 2008 R2

Excel 2010 x64

Hi All,

I have a fairly complex Excel report where a raw data sheet is updated from 10 or so PivotTables pulling from an Analysis Services Cube, (2008 R2), with a VBA script that refreshes all pivottables, and then does some post-processing, formatting etc.

This was originally developed in Excel 2003, and the updating of all the pivot tables ran in under 10 seconds

I've now recreated in Excel 2010 and *each table* is taking up to a minute to refresh!

I've also observed that I can get the refresh time of a single table back down to 1sec, if I delete all other pivottables from the worksheet/book.

Its deeply frustrating, as I'm touting 2010 as being the way for our business to go...it won't help the cause if I deliver something with a x60 increase in runtime!

I've run traces of both the 2003 and 2010 versions executing against the SQL Server, the only thing I can see is that the 2003 version passes 1 single MDX query, whilst the 2010 version appears to be firing it in sections.

I've posted this in the Excel forum too.

Please can anyone help?

Many thanks,





Import Word docs with Metadata into SharePoint 2010 from Windows Server 2003


I need to import 700 Word docs (2003 & 2007) from Windows Server 2003 into a SharePoint Server 2010 library.  I only have a test server to work with right now and want to do as much pre-work before we launch the actual server. 

My goal: When we launch the shpt server, import all docs into a library so that columns propagate with metatdata automatically.

I'm not sure what the best approach is...

Can I can open each doc and add custom properties (maybe with InfoPath) to import as metadata, then import managed metadata through the term store tool and have it associate with the manually entered custom properties? I don't fully understand managed metadata, which might pose a problem.  And before I start importing terms, I thought I should find out if I've completely misunderstood how taxonomies work.

Or I have an excel spreadsheet with info about each doc in columns that can act as metadata. I could upload this as a list then associate each doc with the list.  But it seems wiser to enter the metadata into the documets.  

Is it possible to update my docs in advance so that uploading goes smoothly? I have help now for data entry that I won't have later.

I have no resources to spend on tools, and have to figure out and build this&nbs

Sharepoint 2003 with Office 2010


We work with Sharepoint 2003. I've put a Excel 2003 file online.

On a PC with Office 2010:

  When opening this file for viewing it shows the file, ok.

  When opening the file to edit with Excel it starts Excel (2010), but shows an empty sheet.

Any idea what's wrong here?

SharePoint 2007 and Office 2010 Compatibility


So far all of my clients that have been piloting Office 2010 have been running into complications with updating documents in a SharePoint 2007 environment.  They are receiving the following notification when trying to save their changes:

<Document Name> has not been uploaded to the server.  Do you want to close this file?  All Microsoft Office files that have changes pending upload to the server can be viewed here:Microsoft Office Upload Center

In the Upload center we have the following status: Upload Failed - Upload Error

No additional information is available, you just have an option to select 'Resolve'.  This tells you to save the document localy and then upload it to the SharePoint server.  Has anyone found a better log location that can be reviewed for status errors with the Upload Center?  Or, is Office 2010 even really usable within a corporate environment running SharePoint 2007?

Opening Word 2003 document from sharepoint site in word 2010.


When using sharepoint services with word 2003 on an XP machine, everything works fine. We bought some new computers where we now have windows 7 and office 2007/2010. These work perfect too. Even the 64-bit computers.

We are very happy with the new office version, so we decided to upgrade the entire company. As a test, we upgraded 1 PC. But this is not working. So we upgraded office, later we reinstalled it. But nothing helps. This is the problem: I surf to the document click it to open it, and then Word hangs. "contacting server". This is not always the case, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This even with the same document.

We would really like to upgrade to office 2010 entirely. But we're not going to buy licences we cannot use. Anybody got a solution?

Search for people in Sharpoint Server 2003 from Sharepoint Server 2010.


Anyone know how to setup so that Sharepoint 2010 crawls Sharepoint 2003 people?

We have tested adding a new content source called People with a content source type of sharepoint and used sps://site.domain.com/site$$$people as the start address.

When trying to SAVE/OK we get the following error.

The start address "sps://site.domain.com/site$$$people" is not valid for this content source type.


Deployment of SharePoint Server 2010 on Windows 2003 Server Std Ed


After reviewing http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485.aspx document on hardware/system requirements it appears that I will need to upgrade my Windows 2003 Server Std Ed to at least Windows 2003 Enterprise Ed in order for SharePoint Server 2010 Ent to be able to address more than the 4 GB (I believe) Windows 2003 Std only allows or addresses.  I have 32GB RAM on my Windows 2003 Std which also hosts the SQL Server 2005 Std Ed databases for other apps and will host SharePoint's database, as well--single platform install.  I also have two CPUs on this box which SQL (32 bit) uses.

So my question is:  can I easily upgrade Windows 2003 Std Ed to Enterprise without having to reinstall Windows 2003 and subsequently all other apps in Windows?

We installed Sharepoint 2010 using SQL 2008 r2 and had most databases install with a compatibility level of 100.  However two of the databases relating to User Profile Service SynchBD installed with a compatiblity level of 90.  Why would the Sharepoint install do that?  thx!
