Installing .NET 4.0 run-time on end user's machine

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

Hi all,

I am building a setup project for my .NET 4.0 WPF application.
When the setup program is run, I would like it to detect if .NET runtime is available on the end user's machine.
If it is not, I wolud like the setup program to download and install the runtime.

How do I do that?

Thanks in advance.

Login Failed for User "XXX" when login from a ETL machine for Sql Server 2005 SP2

Hi Guys, I have a straange issue with Login Failed errors coming intermittently probabaly twice in a week: I have a  production Database on Server A and we have Two ETL servers on Server B and Server C. Sometimes when the ETL's (SSIS) run from SERVER B I do get an error stating login failed for user "XXX" this user is a sql server user. And when I run the same package from Server C it does not give any error and runs smoothly. Both the packages uses the same configuration file to connect to the same database with the same user credentials. Also this error is not a frequent error but comes along once or twice in a weeK. Can anyone shed some light on this and let me know the root cause. Both servers have the same sql client version as well. All servers mentioned above are 64 bit windows 2003 servers. Raju

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.

Error installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 machine

HI all, I'm installing the Developer edition of MS SQL Server 2008 R2 (downloaded today) on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit virtual machine (using VMWare Workstation 6.5).  Yesterday I had tried MS SQL Server 2008 R0 with the same results.  Both give an error about 30% into the installation process: "An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'VSLangProj80,Version="",PublicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a",Culture="neutral",FileVersion="8.0.50727.1826"' When I click the OK button, the install rolls that last bit back and then continues.  Unfortunatly I didn't take a screenshot of the main install window, just the error window. Any ideas what this error means?  The install yesterday seemed to work, but I'm not through the R2 install yet.  The R0 install also failed to install the documentation for some reason (I left it running during the night) Note that I have VS2010 (original release plus downloaded updates) installed and then just some small stuff like Snagit and Skype on this VM.  I updated Windows 7 completely before I started installing R2 so it is completely up to date as of midnight!

Mulitple time and user stamped comments for each custom list row?

Does anything int he UI allow for this type of column to be added to a custom list? or would it have to be a seperate list? And on the subject of connecting two list to each other. Ideally, we would connect two lists by the list ID, having one list look up to another. But then the issue is having to know the ID.Anything in the UI allow a user to select one column, but save the ID for that as part of the lookup? Thanks.

Installing reporting services 2008 on machine that already has reporting services 2005


Hello everyone


I'm a novice when it comes to installing sql server and I would like to install reporting services 2008 on a machine that already has reporting services 2005 installed on it. This is a machine used for developing reports and is not used as the report server. I want to be able to develope reports in both BIDs 2005 and BIDS 2008.

I ran the sql server setup and when it comes to the screen that allows you to select the components to install, I noticed that you could create a new instance for reporting services 2008 but BIDS comes under the share components section.

If I was to select this option, would it over-write/upgrade BIDS 2005. Could someone please point me in the right direction on how to have a side by side installation of reporting services 2005 and 2008 including BIDS for both versions?

installing SSRS 2008 R2 on a separate machine than the SS 2008 R2 database



I set up SQL Server 2008 R2 along with SSRS on a Windows 2008 server--let's call it "SQLDB"--and all's working fine.  I'm able to upload reports that are pulling data from the SQLDB databases.  There is no problem.

However, the operations dept. now tells me that a server with SQL Server installed absolutely will not be made available to the users and so I will need a separate SSRS 2008 R2 server (named "SQLRS") that pulls data from SQLDB databases.  Basically, I need to stop using SSRS on SQLDB and start using SSRS on SQLRS.  Makes sense to me, although I've never done this.

I'm confused about what services and components of SQL Server 2008 R2 need to be installed on which server(s).  Could somebody please point me to a page that explains it thoroughly or, if it's fairly simple, explain it for me here? 

For instance, "SQLDB" has SSAS, SSIS, database engine, SQL Browser, Management Tools, and SQL Agent installed. 

On "SQLRS", I installed SSRS, database engine, SQL Agent, SQL Browser, Management Tools, and SQL Agent.  Was it necessary to install the database engine, considering the data to be pulled is on "SQLDB"?  I read that the Agent is only required for subscriptions, but what about SQL Browser?  Is it only required on s
