Designer crashes sometimes because application path becomes C:\Windows\system32

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Sometimes VS crashes as it seems to execute the WPF designer in its directories or C:\Windows\system32. Sometimes it works fine as we can preview saved settings in the Designer. I have set application path as follows : ConfigFile = Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, "mixer.ser");<br/> When VS crashes I accept to debug it, the exception is : {"Access to the path 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\\Common7\\IDE\\mixer.ser' is denied."}    System.Exception {System.UnauthorizedAccessException} ... or c:\windows\system32 Any ideas on how to fix this ?   Thank you !

Fox OLEDB Provider crashes Application Designer (BDC)

I am trying to access some data stored on a Fox Database by using App Designer to connect to it. After trying to use ODBC and seeing that MS consider this driver deprecated and suggests using OLE DB instead I downloaded this provider for Visual Fox Pro and try to connect to the DB.
Everything was going fine on Adding a LOB system, typing the conn string for OLE DB and when I hit Connect I even could see the table list and Add tables by dragging them to the workspace. My guess here was that the provider and conn string were fine since I could actually see the DB objects, but when I hit the OK button and the App Designer should take me to the tree-view Metadata Objects window and let me do my work, instead it just crashes big time!

The error says Application Definition Designer has stopped working with this Details:

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.



SqlServer - Windows Account to install Application from Gallery


Referring to this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/download-and-install-an-asp-net-application

I selected umbraco cms and got this wizard:

I already have Standard Sql Server 2005 on my machine which I wanted to us for above DB and not SqlExpress.

I did not remember "sa" account pwd nor I use explicitly any account to connect to my Sqlserver. I use Windows Authentication account i.e implicit authentication. So I created new account and gave all rights and used it in the above wizard and was able to install the database after some struggle.

My question is: What if I want to use my Windows Account to install the database above? Why the wizard don't have any option to use Windows Integrated Authentication?

Note: I can create the DB with external user I created, just looking specifics for using Windows Authentication for above installation.

Cloud Storage: Fueling Your Application's Engine with Windows Azure Storage


Yes, you can run background processes in the cloud. Kevin Hoffman and Nate Dudek use a shopping cart example to demonstrate how to build an application engine as well as implement asynchronous messaging and processing using Azure Storage.

.NET Internals: Tailor Your Application by Building a Custom Forms Designer with .NET


The design-time architecture of Windows Forms in the .NET Framework has made development much more flexible than it had been with MFC. With Windows Forms, you can drag one of your custom controls from the toolbox and drop it onto the Visual Studio design surface and even though Windows Forms knows nothing about the control, it's able to host it and let you manipulate its properties-not possible in MFC. In this article, the author discusses what's going on under the covers as you design your forms and then walks through the creation of a bare-bones forms designer.

Windows Forms: Give Your .NET-based Application a Fast and Responsive UI with Multiple Threads


If your application performs any non-UI processing on the thread that controls the user interface, it may make the app seem slow and sluggish, frustrating users. But writing multithreaded apps for Windows has long been restricted to C++ developers. Now with the .NET Framework, you can take advantage of multiple threads in C# to control the flow of instructions in your programs and isolate the UI thread for a fast and snappy user interface. This article shows you how. Also, it discusses the pitfalls of multiple threads and presents a framework for safe concurrent thread execution.

Custom Editform.aspx crashes Sharepoint Designer

Hi there,

I've recently designed a sharepoint list and customised newform.aspx and editform.aspx. I made copies of the originals then customised the copies.
On both forms I simply:

* Closed original List Form web part
* Added Custom List Form
* Added some section breaks (<tr>) to the form to break it into sections
* Added a new css style to change the background colour on the section breaks (table rows)

Now NewForm.aspx works fine. However after making above changes in EditForm.aspx, I saved it. However whenever I try to reopen EditForm.aspx in Sharepoint Designer (SD), SD crashes! I can only open it in Text view. The error details reported by SD are:

WPF Designer (in VS 2008 and VS 2010) crashes with Visual Studio

Good day all. I have the following question: WPF designer in both VS 2008 and VS 2010 crashes with Visual Studio when I try to edit UI form. Moreover, it crashes even when I try to save .xaml.cs file. Meanwhile, Winforms and Dataset UI editors work as usual. Are there other people met this issue? And how could I fix up this problem? Deleting the .suo file, uninstalling silverlight, repairing visual studio, and further googling did not help me. Thanks in advance.

Application just crashes without error

Hello, I'm using Visual Studio 2010 Premium edition on a Vista 32-bit machine. I've created a WPF application that has references to some old DLL's (older version of Framework). The application needs to load some stuff and then display a map. When I run the app in the debugger of VS2010 it always works!! But when I want to start the app as a normal .exe application, it crashes without an error. It writes a line in the Windows Log: It's an Application Error 1000   Application error Norma SEH Module.exe, version 2010.8.1.0, timestamp 0x4c737108, module error clr.dll, versie 4.0.30319.1, timestamp 0x4ba1d9ef, exceptioncode 0xc0000409, errormarge 0x002b5b8c, proces-id 0x121c, Application starttime 0x01cb435c02d99ad2.   In my app.config the frameworks are defined like: <startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true"> <requiredRuntime version="v1.0.3705" safemode="true"/> <supportedRuntime version="v4.0"/> <supportedRuntime version="v1.0.3705"/> </startup> The weirdest thing is that they app.exe does work 1 time and then it won't work until I create a rebuild with VS2010. Can someone please help me out here? I've searched the whole internet and can't find anything. Thanx in advance With best regards, Alex van der Lans Team Leader | Software Engineer URL: http://www.
