Need help with configuring VS 2010 on x64 Workstation

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

We have several applications that we developed in VS 2005 and VS 2008. We have IBM x86 PCs that we have installed VS 2010 and have attempted a compile and have created a baseline.

Our IT dept has given us an HP z400 workstation running XP x64 with SP2, Xeon 2.8 Proc and 6 GB of RAM. We have tried the default install of VS 2010 on this machine, and can see no real improvement in compile times. This system is also running Intel ICH8R/9R/10R/D0/5 Series/3400 Series SATA RAID controller.

Question is this: is there something special with Visual Studio we have to do to run in WOW64 mode? We know there is not x64 bit edition of VS 2010, but the installation we have doesn't seem to be taking advantage of any of the x64 features. Are we missing something basic, soome checkbox or command-line option that we have missed? You would think that a faster processor/faster RAM/faster disk and controller running on an x64 OS would compile faster, but it doesn't. In fact we cann't seem to see any improvements at all over our IBM Intellistation M Pro machines running XP x86.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how we may be able to realize some of the benefits of having this more powerful system running what is supposed to be a faster OS, using Visual Studio 2010?

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list

Configuring SharePoint Foundation 2010 with ADFS 2.0 in a multi-tenant environment using subscripti

Hi, I am trying to configure SharePointFoundation 2010 and ADFS 2.0 in a multi-tenant environment, where I have one Web Application and two site collections, each one under one subscription.  At this point is still a very simple infrastructure with one single Domain, AD and ADFS.  My problem starts with the configuration of ADFS 2.0 as Identity Provider in SharePoint. Since I have only one web application, the directory for the incoming token is "_trust" is placed at the root level or the application. Is there a way to change the location where this directory is created, so I can have one distinct one for each one of my site collections ? Or in other words, is there a way to have on identity provider by site collection ?  Thank in you advance for any information on this.   --MD.

Configuring ODBC Database connection in Sharepoint Designer 2010


We are trying to connect the simple way from Sharepoint Designer 2010 to an external Pervasive SQL version 10 database.

Normally this is a trivial excercise in any other development tool, you supply an ODBC connection and away you go.

Using Sharepoint Designer 2010 (or the previous version) it is not possible to get a working connection that will get you past the "Configure Database Connection" dialog. We have to use the "Use custom connection string option" as that is the only place there appears to be a Provider for ODBC or OleDB.

No connection string works, I have tried connection strings that work fine in Visual Studio, no joy.



Configuring SharePoint 2010 to allow access for external users


I have just installed SharePoint 2010 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  It works fine from the LAN but I cannot access it from the Web.  I have my router configured to forward all port 80 traffic to the virtual server so the problem is not there.  When I try to connect via the IP address or FQN that points to the same IP, I get a "Cannot Display the Page" error.

I have done this before and it worked fine but I'm missing something in the setup with Windows 2008 to allow external access. 

Appreciate any help.

Thanks, Ken

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

Architecture Tools in VSTS 2010

Designing new functionality on existing applications can be daunting. There are always differences between the original design and the current implementation.

The new Architecture tools within Visual Studio Team System 2010 help you understand the application you have, design new functionality you need, and validate that your design and your implementation do not deviate.
