Installing and Uninstalling Services

Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

Installing both VS Pro 2008 and VWD2008


I work at an educational institution and in our computing labs we have Visual Studio Professional 2008 installed already. One of our academics has requested me to install Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition as they think it's easier for their beginner students to learn, but I've noticed it wants to install it in the same folder as our Visual Studio Professional install.

Can both be installed without the limited VWD interfering with the Professional version?

Installing a httpModule on IIS6



I am trying to install a httpModule on an IIS 6 web server. I have the same module working on an IIS 7 test box, but we still have a couple of IIS 6 boxes to support.

The module is:

  • c# .NET 2.0
  • registered in the GAC
  • added to the system level web.config (as we want this for all applications on the box). I followed the instructions from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms227673.aspx. I tried it with both short name (as in the web page) and the full strong name (like the other entries in the <httpModules> section.

So, I am at a loss as it does not appear to even being called and any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Status "Installing" keeps stuck

Hi All..

I have a problem about status that is stucked.. I've read many forums that related to my problem, but still can't solved it yet :(

Here is my problem...

After 3 months I keep on uploading, removing, and uploading form, I have no problem.. Until today, when I want to upload my form, the status keeps on "Installing", instead of "Ready".
Then I removed my form using Timer Job Definitions, and I delete form.wsp. It works.
Afterwards, I try to upload form again, I have the same problem with stuck status. And then I delete again using same way.
I've tried more than 10 times, and the result still the same one.

Things that I've tried are:
- Reset IIS.
- Reset Application Pool.
- Check the services (e.g: Windows Sharepoint Services Administration, Search, Timer, Tracing) -- all are already started.
- Use "stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs"
- Reset Infopath Form ID
- Publish and change Infopath Form Name
- Command "net start SPTimerV3" and "net start SPAdmin"

Tried all things above, but still can't work. Status is still stuck.

Then, I try to upload other forms, but still have the same problem.

Please help me. I'm stuck already... :((

Is there anything I can do again?


How can I remove web parts from showing up on the "Add Web Parts" web dialog without uninstalling th


This seems like a straightforward request, but I can't find out how to do this.  I need to remove a custom web part that is showing up in the Add Web Part dialog box when I go to add a web part to a SharePoint 2007 page.  However, I do not want to uninstall this web part at this time.  How can I prevent it from showing up as an installable web part? 

Need help uninstalling incomplete Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition with SP1


I need to get a list of programs/files that were installed when I was trying to install VWD 2008 so I can go through and remove them.  The installation did not actually install the main part of the program so I can't start with removing Microsoft VWD 2008 (a folder was created in Program files but it is empty.  I found this (below) but I'm not sure that it applies. I don't want to remove programs/files that are being used by other programs. (I can't just try to install again because there is not enough room on my hard drive)

Having problems installing/setting up SQL Server 2008 Express/R2 for ASP.NET user management on deve

I'm a bit new to installing and configuring, well, just about anything regarding databases, so please bear with me. I'm currently building a couple of ASP.NET MVC 2 sites.  I'm following along with the MVCMusicStore tutorial, and am trying to set up user management using ASP.NET's configuration tool.  The problem is that ASP.NET can't 'see' the database. I have SQL Server 2008 installed on my laptop.  It's the version which is available on the Web Platform Installer (I believe it's Express).  When I try running the aspnet_sqlreg.exe program to set up my user management database, it can't tell that I'm running any version of SQL Server at all.  I get an exception about 'named pipes', and some other things I don't understand at the moment. Obviously, this is all a bit over my head.  Is there an idiot proof guide or tutorial available that describes, step-by-step, how to: 1. Install SQL Server 2008 on a development PC 2. How to configure it to be used by Visual Studio 2010 Professional 3. How to properly upload/modify the db on the production server with what's on the development PC Essentially, all the things that the ASP.NET tutorials gloss over.  Any suggestions, links to documentation, or other nudges in the right direction would be immensely appreciated.

When I opened a connection, the old connection was gone, perhaps a reboot? I am able to connect to the instance from the server and create a table  and query a DB.  I am however unable to connect to the Instance from my 2005 client. How can I tell the install was successful? Looking in the event logs and not seeing anything around the time it would have completed. Additionally: I checked and Remote connections is enabled. TCP and Pipes are enabled. SQL Browser is stopped,when attempt to access to start that I get an error: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices asssociated with it [0X80070422] I can't telnet into 1433 on the server.. might be firewall. Do I really need to open that manually? My client is SQL 2005, I believe I've connect to sql 2008 DBs. Should I upgrade the client on my client? I attempted to stop and start the instance. when I started it I got this mess: Server stack trace:    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.ObjectExplorer.ObjectExplorer.FindObjectExplorerFrame()    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.ObjectExplorer.ObjectExplorer.GetObjectExplorer(Boolean activateWindow)    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.ObjectExplorer.ObjectExplorer.ShowError(Exception e)    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.
