Programmatically delete a .webpart file from wpcatalogs folder from an IIS website

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We are using a third party wsp in our solution which directly adds the web parts into the web application store rather than the web part gallery(References to them are present in IIS site's wpcatalog directory). We want to remove these web part files so that the users will not be able to add these web parts to pages directly. Or any other modification so that users will not be able to add these directly. Is there a way we can do this programmatically?

Why isn't my Views/Home/Home.Master file published when I publish my website?


Hi All,

I spent the better part of today hunting down an elusive error.  I was getting a message saying that it couldn't find the Index view for the Home controller, and it gave a list of locations it searched, e.g., ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx.  This was really confusing as the file definitely existing and was at ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx, the first place in the list of locations it searched for the view!

What I eventually discovered was that there was a file that did not get published when I used Visual Studio's "Publish" feature (this is on the "Build" menu).  That file was Views/Home/Home.master, and (as you can probably guess) is the master file used by Views/Home/Index.aspx.

Once I copied that file into place manually, it started working.  But I am left wondering--why???  Why does this file not get published?  It's a part of my project, I can see it in the solution explorer, and it's obviously a critical file that's necessary for the MVC app to run.  It has the same permissions as every other file in my project.  So why wouldn't it get copied?  And how can I fix it so it does get copied?

Thanks for any suggestions on this!


Exclude Folder from Website in Visual Studio

Method/Way to know whether a input path of FilesSystem contains any Child file/folder or not

Hi,I am looking for a Method/Way to know whether a input path of FilesSystem contains any Child file/folder or not. To know it currently I am using "Directory.GetFileSystemEntries(Path).Count" and checking if count > 0 then returning True else False. For this first method calculates all the files and folder and then return status to me but I want to exit out as soon as my method gets first element(file/folder) in specified path. Because above method is timing out when my input path contains more than 1 million files. I just need to check whether input folder path contains any child file/folder or not. I have tried to use Win32 API also but on ther server it is crashing so I donot want to use that solution. In .NET any method or way is present to know it. Please suggest me.

Web Folder problem : This file cannot be saved to this location because there is no connection to th

When I check out a Word 2007 document from a list, I cannot save it back to the server.  I get:   This file cannot be saved to this location because there is no connection to the server.  Check your network connection and try again.   I am using a Virtual Machine (Virtual PC).  I have the Microsoft Loopback adapter installed.    The server has a static IP address and is a domain controller. I am able to access the web folder through Windows Explorer.   How do I set up Office, Sharepoint and Webdav so that I can check files out of sharepoint and save them back, on a virtual machine?

using application configuration file in AppData special folder

Hi! So I understand it is a best practice to save the application configuration files under the AppData folder, rather than in Program Files, since UAC will restrict write acces to the Program Files folder, which is fine. Now, saving the configuration file to another location is no problem, using the SaveAs method. However, when I load the application, I expect some settings to be read. From what I know, this is done either using direct calls to the ConfigurationManager class, either initializing a Configuration object. For the first case, a example is this: if (ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Title"] != null) { this.Title = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Title"]; titleTextBox.Text = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Title"]; } For the second case, I would use it like this: Configuration config = ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration( ConfigurationUserLevel.None); string setting = config.AppSettings.Settings["Title"].Value.ToString(); So, if the application runs in the Program Files folder, an exception is thrown when I save the file. However, if I save the file using SaveAs and save it to AppData folder, obviously, when loading, the settings are not loaded from the AppData folder, but from the configuration file existing in the Program Files folder. One way to solve

How to localize a .webpart file?

Hi I just got handed a project from another developer and now I need to localize a set of existing .webpart files. My idea was something like : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <webParts>     <webPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v3">         <data>             <properties>                 <property name="Title" type="string">$Resources:TestWPRes,WPDefTitle</property>                 <property name="Description" type="string"></property>              </properties>         </data>     </webPart> </webParts>   However, Having the resource file in 12\Resources does exactly nada. Not even an error message. When displaying the "$Resources:TestWPRes,WPDefTitle" . Now where did I go wrong and how do I fix it?

How to delete an image file assigned to a PictureBox xontrol ?

In a Windows form application, some image files are assigned to PictureBox controls. I am trying to delete those image files. The first approach [1] with "Image.FromFile" gives an error message of "Another process is using this image file", although "Image.Dispose()" is executed. The second approach [2] using "Image.FromStream" results (X) images for PictureBoxes and Buttons, if "fs.Close()" is inclided. Without "fs.Close()", it gives the same error message of "Another process is using...". How can I display images properly and delete those images files ? Thanks [1] pictureBoxSelected.Image = Image.FromFile(@actualImage); . . . pictureBoxSelected.Image.Dispose(); pictureBoxSelected.Image = Image.FromFile(@tempImage);                                                if (System.IO.File.Exists(actualImage) == true) {     System.IO.File.Delete(actualImage); } [2] FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read); pictureBox.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(fs); fs.Close();

Then on my site home page, I add webparts "Page Viewer" and paste the link to see this mht. The problem is when I go on the site, it's always a pop-up ask me to download it (Save or Cancel). I'm not able to see it in the page. On my 2007 it's work fine. Did someone have any idea to resolve my problem ? MOSS 2007 IIS 6 windows 2003 MOSS 2010 IIS 7 Windows 2008 x64 SP2 Thx to allDavid

Log file WSS_AdminService.log - can i delete it?

Hi, I've noticed that the size of a file WSS_AdminService.log every user profile setting eg. in C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\Temp is about 2GB currently. I understand that this file is updated by wssadmin.exe (the Windows SharePoint Services Administration service). questions: 1. we have many users who are no longer using the account to login to the server, can i delete teh file then? 2. is there a way that i can allow only a single file WSS_AdminService.log in a specific user account to be access by wssadmin.exe? in this case we can save more HDD space. because, if we have more than 50 users account, then 50 * 2GB and it's already 100GB. instead of 100GB, can we just make it 2GB and this file is share by all the sharepoint users? thanks. Sam. Does anyone have any insight into how I might alter what is logged or how often, or even just to persuade it to 'housekeep' better, as the file continues to grow (reaching 750MB on the first server I noticed this on)? As far as I can see it is not related to the Diagnostic logging settings in Central Administration > Operations. Renaming the file to append a date on a regular basis is my current solution - a new copy is then created by WSS Admin on its next log cycle.
