Deploying Visual Web Part with Custom Server controls

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I created a Visual Web Part with VizStudio 2010. In this web part I have a custom server control that exists in a project I added to the solution.


When I deploy from the menu can I tell Studio to deploy the Custom Library or do I install that manually?


It builds fine, but when I add the web part to a web part page I get an exception that the assembly cannot be found.

Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

Deploying custom project workflow using visual studio 2010


Hi All,

After i developed a custom project server workflow using vs 2010, i tried to deploy it using this article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff459292.aspx and everything done great (Add, Install and Activiate) .. when i tried to debug from VS 2010 i got this error while deploying the project:

Error 6 Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Feature with Id 'c34364d9-0323-4e46-98c1-d74f638e6c7d' is not installed in this farm, and cannot be added to this scope.

i'm pretty sure that the Guids are the same ... and i got the same error when i tried to activate the feature from VS 2010 directly

here is my feature xml (inside VS 2010)

Help deploying Windows Service to 64bit Server usinf Visual Studio 2008 Setup Project?

I have a Windows Service I created a while back for our Win2003/2008 32bit Servers, written in Visual Studio 2008, deployed via a VS2k8 Setup Project.  Everything works great, installs fine, and runs as it should.  There is no platform dependent code, it's all straight-up .Net Framework stuff, so we thought it should deploy to a Win2008 64bit Server just fine.  But this seems not to be the case.

When I try to install the Service as is on the 64bit machine, the service and associated DLL's are installed to the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" folder, but when you right click the Service itself and look at the properties, it is trying to find the .exe file in the "C:\Windows\System32" folder. This difference prevents the service from running, obviously.

If I change the Setup Project settings, set the Target Platform to "x64" and change in the File System screen to use the "System (64-bit) Folder" placing the files in there and re-run the setup.exe on the server.... now the files are correctly installed to the "C:\Windows\System32" folder, but the Service itself is not 'installed', that is it *does not* show up in the Services Manager.

Just for the giggles of it I tried to manually install the service using 'installutil.exe' in the .Net Fra

Unknown server tag - controls not rendering in visual studio 2010 design surface


I added a visual web part item to my solution.  I'm looking to drag some controls on to the design surface from the toolbox but they're not there.  For example, linqdatasource control and datapager control.  I tried to create them in the markup up but all I get is 'cannot render control' or 'unknown server tag.'

At the top of my .ascx file I have:

<%@ Assembly Name="$SharePoint.Project.AssemblyFullName$" %>

<%@ Assembly Name="Microsoft.Web.CommandUI, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>

<%@ Register TagPrefix="SharePoi

Custom web part properties are not saved in SharePoint 2010 visual web part


I have created my first visual web part in SP2010.  In 2007 version I didn't use user controls so all of my code was in a single file for the most part.  Now I've separated out the code.  Everything works great and I like this a lot better (more like traditional ASP.NET development) with one exception.  In my bootstrap .cs file (I call it that because it does nothing but load the user control file) I put all of my custom web part properties.  Then in my web part code-behind I reference them thru an instance of the containing class.  I must have something incorrectly configured because none of the changes to the properties at runtime are getting updated in the code.  Here's a filtered view of how I have it wired together:

Sample property in the top level .cs file:

private string m_ImagePath = "sites/myapp/images1/branded_image.png";
   WebDisplayName("Relative path to header image"),
   WebDescription("Relative path to header image"),

Problem deploying custom report item. Items shows in preview screen in VS, but not in server deploye


I have developed a custom report item that works fine in design and preview mode while in Visual Studio. I cannot get it to show up on my deployed reports. Here's what I have done so far:

1. Deployed the report using Visual Studio

2. updated the rsreportserver.config file with the following entry:

      <ReportItem Name="PedigreeChart" Type="Uabr.Rap.PedigreeChart.PedigreeChartRenderer, Uabr.Rap.PedigreeChart" />

3. Updated the rssrvpolicy.config file with the following entry.

                    Description="This code group grants Uabr.Rap.PedigreeChart.dll FUllTrust permission. ">
                                Url="C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.3\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin\Uabr.Rap.PedigreeChart.dll" />
