I am trying to set up a SP 2010 farm. I have windows server 2008 R2 installed and was able to install SP 2010 successfully. However when I ran the Sp 2010 Products and configuration wizard I am getting the following error at Step 3.

I have installed all the prerequisites and I am on Microsoft Geneva Framework 1.0.30624.0 . I saw on a blog that Microsoft Geneve Framework beta 2 will actually cause the above problem. However I encountered the error with Beta 1 version as well.

Any ideas why this is happening?

SharePoint 2010 - Error when running the wizard after June CU


When I'm running the wizard it will close with the following message:

Keyword not supported: 'failover partner'

The Farm is using SQL Mirroring, which works perfectly. It seems like that the June CU for SharePoint 2010 doesn't know how to handle this.

I think that my only option is to stop the mirroring on the SQL server, but SharePoint will still be knowing the failover partner. I've looked on the internet to remove the failoverpartner within SharePoint via a PowerShell scrit, but i haven't been able to find one.

Are there more people having this situation or is there someone with a great solution? :)

Share Point 2010 Workflow throws error Workflow Failed to run when using a Pause Untill condition


I need to define a workflow where every night it checks the end date and if it is in past it should delete that list item. To achieve this I defined two workflows on the list which satrt when item created or modified. One workflow just checks the date and if past deletes the item. Another workflow I have defined as timer workflow which pauses untill 1am next day and then updates a hidden filed in the list item which triggers another instance of the timer workflow as well as deletion workflow.

Everything works fine if I remove the pause Until action, but if I use Pause Until or Pause For Duration the workflow does not resume and throws error workflow failed to run.

I googled and found this issue with 2007 and some hotfixes but could not find any solution for 2010 Anyone experienced the same issue?

Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!




Weird security configuration error message


Recently something has gone wrong with our website so that whenever you try to access an aspx file, it shows the following error:


Server Error in '/RALSWeb' Application.

Configuration Error

Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Error with ASP.NET Configuration Tool


I'm trying to make an MVC 2 site, and I've run into a bit of a snag.  I want to add user roles to my system via the configuration tool, but every time I click the Security tab I get the following error:

"There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.

The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Could not load type 'HandiGamer.MvcApplication'."

When I click on the 'Choose Data Store' button, it tells me I'm already using AspNetSqlProvider.

I have a .mdf file for the rest of the site's db, but didn't make any tables for membership as I thought all of that would be handled by the configuration tool.

Am I missing a step?
