Not responding

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I have a task that runs and could take up to 5 minutes to run.  The problem is after about 20 seconds the application says not responding and the user might think it is locked up.  It is not locked up and is busy by design.  How do I make sure that the application knows that is is busy actually running somthing and that the OS should not mark the application as not responding on my long procedures?

Thanks in advance

Internal Error 500 and The Report Server Not Responding

I'm about to give up the ghost here.. I've got Reporting Services installed, the IIS default website is accessible, and it appears the virtual directories "Reports" and "ReportServer" are there, but when I try to access either of these paths via a browser I get the following: Reports - "The report server is not responding. Verify that the report server is running and can be accessed from this computer." ReportServer - Internal Error 500 When reviewing the logs I see this: "w3wp!ui!7!9/1/2010-11:13:39:: e ERROR: The report server is not responding. Verify that the report server is running and can be accessed from this computer. w3wp!ui!7!9/1/2010-11:13:40:: e ERROR: HTTP status code --> 500" I've tried the start stop of ReportServices and IIS...no good... I've checked all permissions and can't seem to find any that are lacking...  I'm running this on SQL Server 2005 (64bit edition), on a Windows 2008 R2 server... any help would be appreciated... I'm getting gray hairs as I type this :-)   Jill

Reporting Services not responding

I've installed Reporting Services 2008,  with sp1 patch, running under Windows 2008. I was asked to disable http and soap access, and so i did through facets. I didnt have any problem.  Then I tried to allow again http and soap access but I was not even able to connect Report Server . More over, I tried to modify rsreportserver with the same results. Any idea about how I can work around with this? Thanks

ASP.Net Application not responding


Hi all,

Recently our client's server was having ASP.Net application not responding issue and after restarting the server, IIS seems back to normal. We found the following error in event viewer and suspected it caused the problem.

Faulting application avp.exe, version, time stamp 0x4ab901f6, faulting module MSVCR80.dll, version 8.0.50727.3053, time stamp 0x4889d619, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0001500a, process id 0x0a0, application start time 01cb3f860132e1d6.

Would this error cause the IIS become not responding? As the user can't access the ASP.Net application, and the page just keep loading. However, the other JSP application running on tomcat was working fine.

Kindly advise, thanks.

SSP stops responding when disabling WSS Services Web Application

I've noticed that when I disable WSS Services Web Application on MOSS 2007, my SSP stops responding. I wasn't the initial person to set this up and am wondering where the connection might be between the two. 

rowDeleting not responding


hi all, i'm a c#.net beginner, my original codes work fine until i added a new set of code inside page_load to rebind the grid, the reason is i wanted to refresh the grid (by session arraylist) after i close the popup window (by showModalDialog).

i'm thinking it is possible to identity which control trigger the postback action so that i can do different thing in page_load?

any advise? many thanks in advance

Service Not Responding


Hello,  I am trying to create my first WCF Service. I have deployed it on IIS 7 and can view the wsdl when I call the url:

However, if I try to call a service operation from my java application, which uses CXF and JAX-WS,  or  SOAPUI, the request just hangs. Any thoughts on what could be wrong? I have pasted below my service interface and the web.config settings


Service Contract:

namespace WcfIdentityServiceLibrary
  [System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCodeAttribute("System.ServiceModel", "")]
  [System.ServiceModel.ServiceContractAttribute(Namespace="http://www.openiam.org/service/connector", ConfigurationName="WcfIdentityServiceLibrary.ConnectorService")]
  public interface ConnectorService
    // CODEGEN: Generating message contract since the operation add is neither RPC nor document wrapped.

Hello, I am trying to create my first web service using wcf. I have it deployed on IIS 7 and can get the wsdl if I call :


However, if I try to test the service using SoapUI - it just hangs.  Any thoughts on what the problem may be?

I have pasted below my service code and configuration:

  public interface IService1
    string GetData(int value);

    CompositeType GetDataUsingDataContract(CompositeType composite);

    // TODO: Add your service operations here

  // Use a data contract as illustrated in the sample below to add composite types to service operations

Dynamic event handler in VB not responding to click event


 Hi Everyone-

This event handler is not responding at all to the click event.  On click, the pagination numbers disappear and I'm not able to trace it in the debugger because the event handle doesn't even fire so I have no idea what's going on.

 Can someone please tell me why? Thanks in advance for your help!


'Create paging control

Workflow stops responding


I have simple workflow with 3 Sequential activities in a parallel activity. and I have 3 WCF interfaces (Recieve activities) in each of these 3 sequential activities. Basically, my WF expects 3 different kind of inputs from client and executes accordingly.

Everything works fine. But when I tried to test it's performance, and tried to call a WCF method in loop, workflow stops responding after 25 calls. It does not throw any exception.

The strange thing is, if I try after 25-30 minutes, it works again ..for another 25 calls.

Note that...

  1. I do not use any DB, so there is no question of locking, etc.
  2. It happens in all 3 methods, one of the method is very simple, which has 1 code activity and returns a small string or empty string. So, I dont think memory related issues (not sure though).
  3. Same case if I run on my PC(windows XP, IDE development IIS ) and also Windoes Server 2003 R2, SP2, 14 GB RAM
  4. My test client is Console application, WCF client created adding service reference.

Any idea?

Many thanks.


Crawl doesn't work and Query server is not responding; Search works only for old (crawled) contents


We have following three servers with MOSS 2007 STD deployed in SharePoint server farm,


App01- Query Server

App02 - Index Server (We are using this server as dedicated web front end computer for crawling)

SPDBServer - SQL 2005


Search was working fine till 01/05/2008 and it stopped working after this date only for new contents meaning search is still working fine for the old contents which were added before 01/05/2008 but not for new contents added after 01/05/2008.


We have been working to find out reasons why did that happen? We have found following event ids on Query server,


Event ID:10042 - A new query machine, 'App01', has been added to the query rotation based on changes to farm topology.
