MVC 2 in IIS 7. No default.aspx page? Please, could someone help me out?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have been upgrading a project from MVC 1 to MVC 2 and now that I was going to upload it to the server I realized that that is no Default.aspx file in the MVC2 project.

I load the site and nothing happens.

I have MVC2 and NET 4 installed.

Any idea what might be wrong?

Unable to access default.aspx page


When I was testing the use of some of the web parts available to some user's web page, I created a web part to list the content of some document librabry we have.

When I was editing the web part's <Actual View>, on the "Folders" category I chose the "Show this view" as "Folder of the content type", "Sent Letters" (example).

As soon as I pressed OK I was redirected to the home page of that content type list.

I tried to return to site's the Home Page by pressing the Home Page button and event typing the URL http://servername/default.aspx but I keep being redirected to the document list I chose for the web part.

This only happens to the user wich created the troublelling web part.

How can I reset the home page of that user?

How to execute WebService asmx link from Default.aspx page link using HTTPRequest and HTTPResponse?


Hi Community

    I have spent a couple of days on this one.  I have an ASP.NET website that has Linkbuttons on
the Default.aspx page..  I added a WebService to the Website because later on the WebService will
subscribe to a Provider(Feed) of News, Sports and Weather and things like that.  So when a Linkbutton
on the Default.aspx page is clicked it will connect to the link in the WebService which will load the News,
Sports or Weather onto  the Default.aspx web page.  

    The problem is I can't get the LinkButton to execute the Link in the WebService.  The link will call the page up
to where you see all of the Web References.  But then if you want to execute one of those references you
have to click its link and the Invoke button that will follow. My questioh is how can the link on my Default.aspx
page execute the link in the WebService.  Now I changed the LinkButton into an <a href> but I still can't execute
the link in the WebServices.  I always use www.Microsoft.com as the link when testing and I wasn't sure about the return type
so I put "void" for an HTTPRequest,  so below is the link from the Default.aspx web page and below that is he asm

default ASPX Publishing page will not restore to previous version

I have inherited a MOSS farm that has a semi customized front page on it's publishing portal. One of the customizations is a bamboo web part that someone did something to to cause it to change the font on it to white and collapse if it had no information in it. I restored this whole site collection to a test area in a separate application pool so that I could work on it without disturbing any other users.  The Bamboo licensing broke in this web application even though the farm is licensed. I was just going to ignore that for now and concentrated on adding some web parts controlled by audiences. I got the web parts in and reacting to the correct audience but then I screwed around with it long enough to break it.

Now the customized Bamboo does not collapse and is stuck showing it's error message about the licensing, and I am unable to change the height of other web parts although I am able to change the width.

So (and here is the real problem) I thought that I would just restore a previous version of the page and try again after I got the licensing with Bamboo all straightened out. But I cannot get this page to restore an old version.

First when I was on the page showing all of the versions for this page and I would choose an older version it would complain that I had to check out the page before making any changes. SO I check out the page and return

error.aspx page reports that Page.MasterPageFile = ~/masterurl/default.master not ~/_layouts/simple.


This one is driving me nuts.

I'm intercepting Pages using HTTPModules so that I can change the Master Page before the page loads. This works as expected on everything except error.aspx in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS folder. Despite the fact that error.aspx specifies MasterPageFile="~/_layouts/simple.master" I keep getting Page.MasterPageFile = ~/masterurl/default.master instead!

Anybody know why this is the case?

How to set in Visual Studio Startup Page other than Default.aspx?


Is there any opportunity to change it in Visual Studio - not in IIS?

Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.

Flash player doesn't send cookies while requesting an aspx page



 I'm developing a web-site, that uses SWFUpload for multiple files upload to the server. Page, that uploades files, is accessable only to registered user. Authentication is done via web-forms (authentication mode="Forms" in Web.config). Flash uploades files to special web page - upload.aspx. In IE everything works great, but Flash player in non-IE browser (in Firefox, for example) does not send any cookies to upload.aspx. Because of it no sesion and no authentication information is available in this page.

 I can pass all the information, necessary for uploading, in GET-parameters, which upload.aspx recieve. But this is a serious security hole and I don't want to expose session information. I can pass session identifier in GET-request. But the question is the following: how can I restore session information from the session identifier? How can I make HttpContext.Current.User point to currently logged in user in this case?

Any help will be appreciated.

Content Editor Web Part in default.aspx not copied over.


I have a CEWP with some content in the default.aspx page on one site, and I downloaded and uploaded the default.aspx page to another site collection. But when I display the default.aspx page in the browser the CEWP is not there anymore.

Is the CEWP detached from the default.aspx page and must also be copied over to the new site collection? If so, then where is the CEWP stored?

Thanks for any help. 

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont
