xbap Request for the permission of type System.Net.WebPermission failed

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


I've developed and XBAP application that talks to a WCF service.  I set my XBAP to partial trust and everything worked just fine.

I then added code to the WCF service that uses System.DirectoryServices to talk to my Active Directory server.  I tried to debug the XBAP after I added this code and I am recieving the following error.  Request for the permission of type System.Net.WebPermission failed.

When I set my XBAP to full trust everything works ok.  However I don't understand why I need to set my XBAP to full trust when it's the WCF service that uses System.DirectoryServices to talk with the Active Directory Server and not the XBAP application.


Thanks in advance!

System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Web.AspNetHostingPerm


Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help.

In Reporting Services: Request for the permission of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientPermissio

Hello all,In Reporting Services through http://myserver/mydbinstance/Pages/Report.aspx blah de blah blah, I get this error:Request for the permission of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientPermission, System.Data, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.Actually, the report runs just fine, but some fields had the famous #Error in them. I put some old fashioned debug in my report to TRY, CATCH, END TRY and get the problem to the report so that I could see this report finally run in production. Yes, it runs just fine in VS2005. I have custom code in the report code window that does its own custom connection to an SQL database through "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection" and "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand" to pull in data that is not part of any of the datasources in the report. When I execute the report through the Report Manager or Report site under IIS, the report will run, but I get these errors in every field that uses functions to populate the data.I have searched the web for 3 days now, and the best answers involve using either CASPOL or the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration wizard in Administrative Tools on the server. (I understand that the wizard does the same thing as CASPOL, just through a GUI.) I have followed those steps, but still get the error.I do not know what I need to do to make these DLLs th

I am using Itext sharp to create a pdf. I am adding an image and I keep getting this error

Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.

it is this bit of code that is causing this


string imagepath = "C:\\BMSApplicationFiles\\PDFImages\\bullfrogWeb.gif";

//add the Image to the DOC
  Image bullfrogImage = Image.GetInstance(imagepath);
  bullfrogImage.SetAbsolutePosition(10, doc.PageSize.Height - 36);

If i comment this out, the PDF builds and no errors are thrown (there is just no image)

I don't understand cause I am am trying to do is read a file.

The directory does have full permission granted to IISUser

Any ideas why I am still geting this permissions error?

Error: Request for the permission of type 'System.Web.AspNetHostingPermission, System, Version=2.0.


I have had an ASP.net 3.5 web site working fine until I moved to a new VS 2008 SP2/SQL Server 2008R2 server.  
The web site seemed to be working fine with the old VS 2008 web server with a SQL Server 2005 database server.
Before moved to the new VS2008 SP2 web/SQL 2008 database server, testing on a new Vista workstation with
ASP.net development server seemed to be working fine. 

However, testing on this new VS 2008R2/SQL Server 2008 server with the a tabase created by backup and restore
from SQL 2005 database showed the following error massge.  There were 14 errors.

What is the problem with "AspNetHostingPermission"?

This is frustrating, and I don't know how to solve it.

I have a strange problem. I am adding a LinqDatasource object, and set the context:

        protected void LinqDataSource_ContextCreating(object sender, LinqDataSourceContextEventArgs e)
            e.ObjectInstance = new KaruselaDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

Then I get this error:
The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.


On web.config I already have this:
<add assembly="System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"/>

NOTE: The datacontext is in a different project (DLL proect) where I added a refernce to System.Data.Linq.

is there another way adding a refernce to a web project? or only though teh web.config?

Types in Yukon: Managed UDTs Let You Extend the SQL Server Type System


The next version of SQL Server, code-named "Yukon," will offer enhanced support for user-defined types (UDTs). Because UDTs can be managed by the CLR, you can represent a wide variety of data structures to create types not possible with previous versions of SQL Server. With UDTs you can more precisely control the kind of data your type accepts, resulting in better data management. This article explores UDTs in "Yukon" and covers their design and implementation.

Anonymous Web Site receives "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized"


I set up a test website on my local box and was able to access sharepoint search using the querySearch web service from SP.  After I got it all working properly I transferred the code to the target website that is set up with anonymous access for all people on the fab floor.  However from this website I keep getting the 401 error.  It can't be SP because the same code worked from my local website "localhost".  Any suggestions?  we don't want to have to have the fab people log in so we can't not have the box anonymous.  I would appreciate any suggestions very much!!!
