moving from Visual Studio 2005 to visual studio 2010. Will be on MOSS 2007 for next year at least.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Most of my web servers are 64 bit.

At this new shop I don't have any custom visual Studio 2005 compiled workflows or sharePoint solutions.  What I do have is a few DLLs we've deployed manually to the Web front ends in the 12 hive,  And a few low volume non-sharepoint websites I've deployed with the source - because I knew I'd be moving to 2010 very soon.

What's the risk of moving my development client to 2010? Can I have 2005 and 2010 on the same client? Does 2010 have an option for compiling to 2005 compatibility?

What happens if I compile those solutions (as is) in vs 2010 and deploy?  Does something special need to be installed in SharePoint or my web servers to support VS2010 compiled solutions?

BTW, how smooth is the 2005 to 2005 code coversion (if any) process. Can I open 2005 projects/solutions in 2010?

Visual Studio 2010 will not open my MOSS 2007 Site


I am using VS 2010 premium, Win Server 2008 R2, MOSS 2007 and are all installed on the same machine.

First, I when I try to connect with the server explorer...I get A SharePoint server is not installed on this computer which is not true.

Second, When I try to open a website through > open website > local IIS and click on my sharepoint portal site I get.....Unable to open website, Visual Web Dveloper does not support opening sharepoint sites. Why am I getting this? I am not using Visual web Devloper. I am using VS 2010 premium.

Why is it so hard to open adn/or connect to our sharepoint sites with VS 2010? I have no problem at all using Sharepoint designer to connect but I want to use visual stuidio.  I hate the designer. I think microsoft dropped the ball on this one.    Anybody know of a good article/tutorial on this?

Import Visual Studio 2005 to 2010



I am updating/extending a site I originally created in Visual Studio 2005. My new site I am starting in 2010. If I select add exiting item to project I notice a number of differences. 

1. CodeFile has been replaced by CodeBehind (without changing this, any code goes in script on the aspx page, not the .cs file. Why?

2. There is a file called filename.designer.cs created with new pages that my imported pages do not have. What is the purpose of this file and is it required and/or how can it be constructed from imported content?

thanks in advance

Web Application Deployment with Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2005?



Is it possible to do a web application deployment(create package/publish sql & package/publish web) with Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2005?

I'm trying my  hand at this new feature - I have an application created in VS2010 and the backend is SQL Server 2005

I read on msdn that the pre-requisites for the database part of the web application deployment is SQL Server Express 2008 or later versions for the tutorial they posted...Is that mandatory for any deployments??

installing SQL Server 2005 on Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2010 already installed



Last year I had Vista on machine with Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005 running fine. Last week I decided to wipe the hard disk, install Windows 7 and make the move to Visual Studio 2010. I still need SQL Server 2005 to be able to test code for clients using this.

Anyway, Visual Studio 2010 Professional went on OK. This installed SQL Server 2008 Epxress.

I then try to install SQL Server 2005. I know that there is a compatibility problem, so following advice from other sources, I want to install it without running the server, then install SQL Server 2005 SP3. Then I should be up and running.


The problem is that even though I make sure the 'Start SQL Server' check box is UNchecked, part way through the installation it throws up an error saying it can't start the server and this part of the installation is unrolled.

I've tried running 'setup.exe SKUUPGRAGE=1' which gets rid of the only warning I was getting up to this point, but the setup seems to insist on running the server even though I tell it not to. So I don't get a chance to run SP3 on it.


I wonder if the problem is that SQL Server 2008 Epxress is already installed but can't see an easy way of uninstalling it. It doesn't appear as an uninstall option using the Visual Studio 2010 disk and if I look at uninstall programs I get the f

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.

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D
