Error connecting to SQL express - Visual Studio 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

 Hi,

I recently installed Visual Studio 2010 and was getting the following error message when running the code (F5) "Error connecting to SQLexpress". The error page prevented me from seeing the webpage.

I consulted many different trouble-shooting recommendations, however, in my case, it was simply a problem with SQL. When I reinstalled SQL server 2008 on my computer, the error message was gone and I was able to see the ASP.net web development page.

Error code -2068578304 When Installing Express SP1 x64 as a Part of Visual Studio 2010 Installation

  
Howdy! I was installing the VS 2010 on my server running Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 and all of a sudden the setup finished with " Setup completed, however, there were failures reported installing optional components. " The final status is success. The left-hand pane of the finish page reads as: The following component failed to install: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Service Pack 1 (x64).   Leaving alone the fact why setup executed the custom action that tried to install SQL Server Express Edition and Compact Edition when I just asked it to install SQL components (which presumably should be SQL SMO and DMO libraries), I would like to understand what had happed to Express install.   Inspecting the .\Logs\dd_error_vs_vstdcore_100.txt file gives the following record:   [09/16/10,16:06:51] Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Service Pack 1 (x64): [2] Error code -2068578304 for this component is not recognized.

Session State throws error in ASP.NET Site Pages for SharePoint 2010 portal using Visual Studio 2010

  

I'm developing Visual Studio 2010 solution for site pages. I’ve created Site Pages in SharePoint 2010 and I’m trying to access Session variables in code behind in ASP.NET but it throws the following error.

Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive.

Windows XP, Visual Studio Express 2010 and SQL Server 2008 Express - How can I save modified columns

  

Hi,

I am using c# in VS 2010 Express. I have a MDF database that I connect to through "Database Explorer". Database Explorer will not let me SAVE columns that I have modified. As I know in SQL Server 2008 full edition you can change the setting "Prevent saving changes that require table recreation" in Management Console to prevent this. I haven't got Management Console and can't see it in install.

How do I change this setting if I haven't got management console? Is it in Registry or Config File.

Thanks.

John.   


Visual Studio 2010 - Design Mode Error - "Error Creating Control"

  

Greetings,

I am using Visual Studio 2010.  I was debugging a web application and an exception happened and VS 2010 froze.  I ended the VS 2010 in the task manager and when I went back to developing, I found on every form for every ASP.net control I get:

 

Error Creating Control -

Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

 

Also I am unable to edit  the form or add anything from the toolbox.

 

Any help on this matter will be appreciated.

 

 

 

 


SQL Server Express 2008 and Visual Studio Express 2010

  

Hi,


A few months ago I upgraded to VS2010 - at the same time I thought it would be good to upgrade to SQL Express 2008 R2.

It turned out that there was some compatibility issues between the two - "...cannot be opened because it is version 661. This server supports version 655 and earlier. A downgrade path is not supported."  After much trouble I restored the database and have done most of the stuff I need through VS itself.

Now I need to use SQL itself and am positively scared to death of what it could do to my database again.  Can anyone offer any advice - it is a service pack update or something...?


Thanks

Error to Add a Database to a Visual Studio 2010 Project via the App_Data Folder

  

I am trying to add a new database via the App_Data Folder and I receive an error described below.

When I attempt to add ANY TYPE OF SQL SERVER DATABASE through the App_Data folder I receive this error "Connections to SQL Server Files (*.mdf) require SQL Server Express 2008 to function properly.  Please verify the installation of the component or download from the URl."

I can create a db via SQL Server Mgmt Studio, it connects fine, and I can see tables.

Visual Studio- Server Explorer connects fine to the Database, I can see the tables.

Im running XP SP3 w/ Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer.  I had previously removed SQL Server Express.

Why cant I access the database within my project, when Im able to connect to this fine within Visual Studio Server Explorer?

Visual studio 2010 and SQL Express 2008 with advanced series

  

Hi I recently found out that you can only do full text indexing with the advanced series of SQL Express and I managed to download and install it on my machine.

My question is how do I integrate it with Visual studios 2010 so that I can do the full text indexing ?

When I installed SQL Express with advanced series 2008, it created an instance of SQL Server management studio so im wondering if I have to do it there and then move the database into my project or if I can do the full text indexing from inside my project

Anyone's help would be much appreciated


How to execute an SQL script from within Visual Studio Web Developer Express 2010??

  

How to execute an SQL script from within Visual Studio Web Developer Express 2010? Can someone please help with this? The MSDN help reference (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/yea4bc1b.aspx) appears to be inaccurate as the "run" and "run on" options do not show in when the script is right clicked for the context menu.

FYI, I am using the default SQL server (express?) that comes with out of the box with VS Web developer express 2010.

Thanks in advance for your help. 


Error creating control contentplaceholder1 Visual Studio 2010 design mode

  

After I imported a VS 2008 web project to VS 2010, I can't view aspx pages that have master pages in design mode. The page design mode displays "error creating control - contentplacehoder1 object reference not set to an instance of an object." The project builds and runs fine though. I have only one master page that all other aspx pages reference and I don't have any nested master pages. Can anybody help me with this? Thanks in advance.

Visual Studio C# 2010 Express and Web Developer 2010 Express are not supported anymore?

  

I've wrote the comprehensive post within my blog: http://weblogs.asp.net/vasilysokolov/archive/2010/10/26/annoying-2-remake-microsoft-russia-is-simply-not-supporting-visual-studio-express-editions-at-all-and-my-last-hope-scott-guthrie-is-on-vacation.aspx

In brief words everything is simple:

1. I've downloaded free Visual Studio C# 2010 Express and Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express

2. I've successfully installed these versions.

3. I've tried registration online - and got the appropriate keys which I've used for registration.

Finally all the keys I've got are not valid for the system - and after 30 days evaluation (for free version?) period all these products are not running anymore because all the keys I am providing from online registration are invalid.

What can you suggest me for fixing this problem?
