Moving to Vs2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

hello all!,

I'm trying move a class library project to VS2010 and I got problems with one  reference to this project. For some reason the reference look fine in the solution explorer but in the Object Explorer I can't to see the referenced assembly :(. I tried rebuild the solution but nothing :(

The message what I got in the code is:

"Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'MyCompany.common.services.Utilities' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found."

Any help! :(

VS2010 What happened to ctrl-V !! Ever since moving to VS2010 Copy / Paste functions are not workin


It is hit and miss and mostly miss when I atempt to cut and paste code from one place to another. Please help! I will use CTRL-V after cutting some code to paste it and it does nothing but move the currsor to the beginning of the line. I thought perhaps I had accedently changed the shortcut setting, but a revue of tools\options\keyboard\shortcuts verifed that CTRL-V should be pasting. I am sure you can imagine how debilitating this can be. I hope someone knows what is going on as I can find no information anywhere about it.


VS2010 Professional .NET 4.0 Remote Debugging ASP Website Project


Trying to remote debug ASP website from VS2010 Pro to Windows Server 2003 machine.  Specifically, trying to debug a Web Service, but breakpoint says, "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document."  This happens for all compiled code though.  I have read this is due to missing PDB files and the work around is to manually copy them, as noted here.  Problem is, I cannot find any PDB files for my project, except referenced libraries, which I can remote debug.


  • web.config has <compilation debug="true">
  • Debugger is attached to wewp.exe process on remote server
  • Installed VS2010 remote debugger from DVD (as I can remote debug referenced libraries)

This is beyond frustrating.  I migrated my code from VS2008 .Net3.5 to VS2010 .Net4.0 to take advantage of the inherent multithreading framework.  Debugging works when using local host and was stable until deployment to test server.

Thanks in advance,


How can I be sure that my entire project is up-to-date and free of errors in VS2010?


Seems like a stupid question, but I will go to Build > Build Solution many many times and the build will succeed many many times, then I will put in a minor syntax error and the build will fail, BUT the build will not fail because of the minor syntax error; it will fail because of an unresolved type that I put in about twenty compiles ago. And then I will fix the minor syntax eror, and the compiler will still complain about the unresolved type. Here is my code:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="FTB" Namespace="FreeTextBoxControls" Assembly="FreeTextBox" %>
  <form runat="server">
  Hello World!!  

Pretty simple, really. I go to Buld > Build WebApplication1 and it runs OK. Now, if I put in a minor syntax error, such as substitute "forrrrrrrm" for "form" and then try to Build Solution, it complains not about the misspelled word, but about the FreeTextBox. And then if I correct the misspelled wird, it still complains about the FreeTextBox. Which leads me to believe that Building the Solution does not check absolutely 100% everything that needs to be checked. Is there a more thorough way of compiling a program that I need to use?

Where is SilverLight Toolkit in VS2010?

vs2010 web deployment project restarts w3svc even when restartwwwservice = false


We've updated some of our projects from VS2008 to VS2010.  When these projects are deployed the w3svc is restarted on the target machine, even when restartwwwservice = false in the vdproj file.


This was a problem in 2008 until SP1 (http://forums.asp.net/p/1300097/2534736.aspx).  Does this same problem exist in VS2010?


This is a major problem for us -  we need to be able to deploy projects without restarting IIS.


I've tried creating a new web deployment package and setting the restartWWWService field to false, but this still does a restart when it's installed.


Has anyone come across this problem in VS2010?

VS2010 WDP Optimization


We have moved our projects from VS2008 to VS2010(Ulitmate) but staying with .Net 3.5. In VS2008 we had a web deployment project that would compile the web project to a single dll and emit full debug information, adding the new web deployment project in VS 2010 to do the same the dll is produced along with the pdb but when a dev attempts to debug the variable comes back with "Cannot evaluate expression because the code of the current method is optmized".

In VS2008 we had a targets fix file which had the setting for the optimization but these don't appear to work under 10 (plus the targets file has grown).

Do not see the table in Database after moving the project folder



I created a ASP.NET project under Visual Web Developer 2008. Under that project I had a Database (along with ASPNETDB.MDF) which has about 3/4 tables (I had SQL server 2008). Everything was working fine (like insert, delete, etc.). And I was able to view the tables in database explorer view.

Then I had to format my computer for some reason and I copied the whole project in a USB drive and then after formatting the computer I copied the folder and tried to open it in Visual Web Developer (now I have VWD 2010). I can see the both Database under App_Data folder (ASPNETDB.mdf and the DB I created). ASPNETDB has all the tables and data as expected. But I do not see the tables under the DB I created.

I also tried in one of my friends computer who has Visual Web Developer 2008. But same result.

I am just wondering if anyone can help me with retreiving the table. I have a bad feeling that I might needed to do something to backup the data (not sure though). But the tables should be still there ... isn't it ?

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Moving a website - URL aliasing question


Hi we are migrating a website from a proprietary system  to a new system built inSQL 2008.

The old  system has about 6,000 pieces of content with individual hard-coded aliases. How could we go about creating a match table to ensure these resolve with our new system (based on Intellgentsia URL rewriter)?

Any pointers would be helpful.

Controllers AccountController IFormsAuthentication MVC 2 error vs2010


I finally got around to trying vs2010 and MVC 2 ... I'm glad I did not put them on a production computer.

My first compile (I have not had a chance to investigate because I just did this and I am too tired).

All I did was create a MVC 2 solution with MSTEST Unit Testing selected too.

I compiled it and get four unexpected errors (because I have heard ASP.NET MVC 2 "alpha" and vs2010 Beta 2 are supposed to be somewhat robust):

In both HomeController and AccountController:

"The type or namespace name "Controllers" does not exist ins the namespace "mvczzzzz001" occurs twice, once for HomeController.cs and once for AccountController.cs.

AccountControllerTest.cs has two errors:  can not find "AccountController" namespace and can not find "IFormsAuthentication" namespace.

With ASP.NET MVC v1.0 there are errors when one uses xUnit.net (version at time of ASP.NET MVC v1.0 RTM) as the test framework but not errors with MSTEST (I prefer xUnit.net to MSTEST).

I am just so surprised to find such errors in vs2010 + MVC 2 ....

is this happening to anyone else?????????????????

Thank you ~~ regards, Gerry (Lowry)

Windows 7, IIS 7.5 and VS2010: can't edit global.asax


Hey and thanks!


As the subject line notes the software in use, anyone have an idea why I can't edit global.asax in VS2010 (being ran with the 'run as administrator' advanced property check box checked)?  The file properties in explorer show local machine admins have full control (I am in that category) and also that IIS has windows auth enabled for the default web site.  What is this other level of security on here that I'm missing?  I can edit web.config, vb files and general aspx files with no problem--just the global.asax file causing a headache...





Convert 2005 RDLC to 2008 using VS2010


Hi and thanks.


I'm getting an error on serveral reports that I built  in VWD2005 (express) using the reportviewer control.  Trying to edit the rdlc file in VS2010, VS2010 asks if i want to convert the file to RDLC 2008 format and I click ok.  When I build the site, I get this error (and of course also when the report is ran):


Error 1 The report definition is not valid.  Details: The report definition has an invalid target namespace 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2008/01/reportdefinition' which cannot be upgraded. C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mastercardlcm\Reports\WorkLists\OpenSRStatus.rdlc 1 


Here is my web.config concerning the RDLC assemblies, etc.

Problems moving an InfoPath form from a DEV system to QA environment


We developed an InfoPath form using a local DEV environment.  The site collection under which the form was developed was http://server1/.

We are now attempting to deploy this form to a TEST environment that uses a slightly different structure for the collection, namely http://server2/sites/sitecol1.

In both cases the site that contains the form is /fin (so we were using http://server1/fin in DEV and want to use http://server2/sites/sitecol1/fin in TEST). 

The form contains VBA code and so requires admin-based deployment via Central Administration, so to deploy to TEST we:

1. Publish the form against the TEST server using InfoPath Designer

2. Upload the form using Central Administration > Application Managment > Manage Form Templates

3. After upload, we activate the form for the site collection http://server2/sites/sitecol1/

4. The form is then associated with a Form Library

When we try to create an instance of the form within this library we get the following error when we click on New to create the form instance:
