Excluding Files From Different Configuration Settings

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hey dudes,

Does anyone know how I can exclude certain folders and files from certain builds? Essentially I've got test code that needs to be deployed to the testing server - but obviously not the real server. This is in both files and folders.

Using the configuration manager profiles, I would like to create a profile for each scenario, and tell it what files it does not need.

Best Practice for Windows Service "Settings" (Configuration) with .Net (C#) ???

Background:   I'm developing a Windows service using C# and .Net 3.5.  The behavior of the service should be controlled by some settings.  The settings will vary per host-computer but will not vary per user (which should be understandable since the settings control behavior of a service.)  A GUI panel of sorts must be provided to set-up and modify the settings that control the service behavior.Secondly, there is a "locally installed application" that has its own settings and those settings also vary per host-computer so all users of that computer would experience the same settings.  (Seemingly analogous maybe to a connection string but not a connection string.)Note that I do NOT perceive any need for Click-once support, web support, and so forth.  Translation:  I think I need the simplest darn type of settings support, the old "dinosaur" level of requirements not much more sophisticated than INI files used to be. I've researched using the "built-in" settings that make use of the Settings Visual Designer in VS 2008 and  System.Configuration.ApplicationSettingsBase.  It seems that: 1.  Application Settings cannot be changed at runtime.  MSFT documentation indicates the software must be shut down and settings must be modified by patching the XML with a text editor (notepad et al.)  The framework specifically prohibits application settings from being

External Code Assemblies, Report Subscriptions, and configuration files

I've got a report that relies on a very small external assembly for data for one of its fields.  That assembly, in turn, relies on some values from System.Configuration for portions of its work. I have the configuration keys and values running fine in the web interface, set up in web.config, but when users set up subscriptions for the report it runs fine but doesn't retrieve the configuration values from web.config (as expected) nor does it retrieve them from rsreportserver.config, where I have tried them in the root of the config file as <add key=... /> entries and also by wrapping them inside an <appSettings /> node.  I have also tried them in an appropriately-name config file in the bin directory.  In all cases the report is fine except the field that relies on the external assembly, where I recieve an error indicating that there's missing information (the config vals are used in a String.Format() call): Value cannot be null. Parameter name: format at System.String.Format(IFormatProvider provider, String format, Object[] args) at ExternalDBFunctions.ExternalSelectors.GetNotificationStati(String NotificationID) mscorlib When I remove the config values from the web.config, the web interface shows exactly the same error. Where should these configuration values go?

Multiple configuration files.


I have an application that is deployed into multiple machines and each machine requires a number of specific configuration entries. I was hoping to pick the brains of this group for the best way to mange configuration entries (connection strings, app settings, sevice model, etc.) for multiple machines. I was hoping to have a configuration file that changing one entry would change all of the configuration settings that the application sees. Best would be for the application to "auto detect" the "right" configuration entries but I would be happy if I could limit the configuration edits to one entry. Ideas?

Thank you.


How launched EXE use it's own configuration settings? (Reflection)

Why is there 2 configuration files in an application



every time I add an App.config file to my Windows forms application ,visual studio adds 2 configuration files, the first one is called App.config which gets added into the project folder  , and the second one has the same name as the executable file with the extension ".exe.config" and it gets added into the debug folder. for example if my windows forms application name is Test_App then the other configuration file name would be "Test_App.exe.config" .

why is there 2 configuration files >> App.connfig that never gets changed and Test_App.exe.config ?

At runtime when my application executes code that modifies the application configurations ,the file that gets modified is Test_App.exe.config not App.config which is located in the project folder so why is it there if it's not used?

thanks ;

Problem in reading WCF configuration settings



The great thing about WCF is that you can configure you're WCF bindings in a configuration file and not through code.
We are now making connection to WCF's webservices in our SharePoint code, but now the question is where to place the WCF configuration settings. 


For deployment reasons we don't want to place the settings in the SharePoint web.config:

-  can't be easily changed by admin users through SharePoint Gui

-  new deployment needed to change configuration settings

-  webservices u

Analysis Services Project under VS2008 not honoring Configuration Settings ?

I have a solution with SSRS and SSAS projects in it. Since we have 3 different environments I use VS Configurations for the individual settings. In each of these environments different groups have access to these cubes. However if I deploy the project the roles on the instances are always overwritten by the settings defined in the project. And it seems it is not possible to have different role settings that for each VS configuration. Am I missing something, it should somehow be possible to use the VS configurations to have different permissions per deployment environment?!

Backup SharePoint 2010 farm configuration settings only get an error for not enough disk space when



I am trying to do a backup the Backup using the Backup and Restore feature in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration.  I just want to backup only the farm configuration settings only.

so I followed the GUI 

Open CA Backup and Restore, checked the Farm checkbox,  click Next 

I chose the following:

Backup Type :  Full

Data to backup:  Back up only configuration settings

Backup File location  :   use an UNC shared location   \\servername\sharedname

at this point,  I see the Estimated disk space required is:   1.2 GB 

the server hard disk available space is  30 GB

but when i click the Start Backup,  i got an error in RED saying "There is not enough disk space. Free additional space on your hard disk and then try again. Approximate amount of space needed is 40 GB.   Amount of space free on disk:  30 GB."

Why is this happened?  and the estimated disk spaced required still showed at 1.2GB

If anyone had experience this problem and have a solution, please advice









Data Sources in Configuration Files



In an Integration Services project, I can see there's a section for Data Sources which is used for defining shared data sources for all the packages. In addition, each package can define connection managers of its own, and these managers can be configured using configuration files for the packages. My question is whether I can also use the configuration files to configure the shared data sources and how.

Reading configuration settings from service installer



not sure if this is the correct forum but anyway: I have a windows service and I am using the default settings stored in configuration file, like myservice.exe.config. Everything works fine when the service runs, but when I want to install or uninstall it via the installutil, the settings stored in myservice.exe.config are not read.  I guess this is because the installutil is the application being run, and loading my service assembly via reflection does not cause its configuration file to be read. Okay, but how can I do that? How can I cause the settings stored in app configuration file to be loaded during the installation phase of the service?

Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:
ASP.NetWindows Application  .NET Framework  C#  VB.Net  ADO.Net  
Sql Server  SharePoint  Silverlight  Others  All
