Visual Web Developer 2010 Exp and SVN Client

Hi All,Is there any SVN Client pluggin available for VWD 2010 Express edition. I checked the possibilities of AnkhSVN, but it doesn't support Express editions.Please suggest any alternate solution to use SVN with VWD Express edition.

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express - installation on Windows Server 2008



We are trying to install VWD 2010 on a windows 2008 server. We already have installed the 2008 version as well as SQL 2005, 2008 and 2008 R2. The Web Platform installer is not installing VWD 2010 however.

At first it notified us that the OS does not allow it, after running tons of updates on the OS (some of which failed) it is still not doing it, not even donwloading it. The latest message simply asked us to post the error on the forum.

Has anybody had similar experiences? If so, how was it solved?



Is Windows Office 2010 required for SharePoint workspace usage in client machine



To work with SharePoint workspace, does the client machine require Windows Office 2010.  I have a External list, which is connected to the BCS. The client does not have Windows Office 2010. Is Windows Office 2010 required for working with SharePoint workspace.

If yes, What are the ways to do Offline External List Capability with BCS other than SharePoint workspace?

Thank you

seeking recommendations for running Visual Web Developer 2010 on Windows 7 without local administrat


All -

Please help.

I am seeking recommendations for running Visual Web Developer 2010 on Windows 7 without local administrator access.

Is there a "how to" somewhere that delineates the issues, etc, that come along with 

Is there some other access level, something higher than Power User but lower than Local Administrator, that can be used or created?

There seems to be a lot of places where glitches appear if one is trying to do development on a Windows 7 64 bit box with Visual Web Developer 2010 Express.

For example, without local administrator access, one cannot create a virtual directory in Windows 7 in IIS, which slows down testing, etc.

I am of the mind that developers should be allowed to run as Local Administrators, for expediency sake, etc.

What do you recommend to approach the situation if one must run at a user level lower than Local Administrator?

If you do not run as a Local Administrator when you develop at you corporate environment, then how do you workaround the matter?

If you do run as a Local Administrator when you develop at you corporate environment, then how did you get management to understand?

Please advise.

Thank you.

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express "Copy Web Site" using different login


I created a site and am trying to grant another pesron access to upload changes to it without giving them my super-user login.

I made a login for her but I can't test whether it works or not because no matter how much I "disconnect" in the Copy Web Site page of VWD 2010, reconnecting to the same site always logs in as my superuser account without prompting me for a login again.

How do I test is the account it set up correctly before having her try to upload to it?    I want to force the login to remote site dialog to pop up again to test her account.

Any ideas?

Web-Aware Apps: Build Hyperlinks into Your Client App with the Windows Forms LinkLabel Control


LinkLabels are Windows Forms controls that enable a user to hyperlink to a URL that points to either the Web or the local directory system. While the SDK documentation discusses the control, it does not demonstrate how linking is accomplished, nor does it outline the power and flexibility the control provides. This article fills those gaps, showing how to link using the LinkLabel control. It also shows the flexibility of this control for the programmer using the .NET Framework. In addition, the author covers the large number of properties that allow you to customize your controls and accurately place them. Their built-in behaviors are also discussed, along with their use in both Visual Basic .NET and C#.

WinInet: Enable HTTP Communication in Windows-Based Client Applications


The Internet provides the infrastructure for applications to communicate, and that can include non-UI communication between Win32-based applications. If you think beyond the standard browser usage of HTTP, you can use this protocol to retrieve information from Win32-based applications and save it to a Web server. After explaining how HTTP can be used in this way, this article shows how to use Microsoft SQL Server, ASP, IIS, WinInet, and Visual Basic to implement two examples. The first reports usage data-how often an application is used and by whom. The second monitors application errors and reports error details for use by helpdesk staff or engineers in the debugging process.

Visual Studio 2010 on windows 7 64 bit



Today i have xp pro with visual studio 2005 and going to change to windows 7 with 64 bit.

Will upgrade to Visual Studio 2010 with 64 bit.

Is that a problem going from visual stuidio 2005 (32bit) to visual studio 2010 (64bit) ? Anything i should think about or if anybody had problems with this ?

The server I will deploy my webapplication is windows server 2003 (32bit).
Will it be ok to deploy webapplications that are build in vs2010 (64 bit) but deployed on a server with 32 bit ?

Maybe this is obvious to some people but I have to ask cause I'm not sure about this.

Thanks in advance

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson
