How do I avoid Guid Collisions

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I have a wpf app that supported by a Sql Ce database. I use entity framework in that database. The primary key for all of my tables is a unique identifier datatype. I use Id = Guid.NewGuid(); whenever I create a new entity.

I now need to upload these new records to the server database. I am concerned that a client will eventually generate the same Guid as another client.

I am sure this problem has been conquered before. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Top .NET Performance Problems and how to avoid them

Every time I work with one of our .NET customers to help them with managing their application performance I come across the same problems as seen with other clients before: lots of ADO.NET queries, many hidden exceptions in core or 3rd party .NET libraries, slow 3rd party components, inefficient custom code

How to detect and avoid memory and resources leaks in .NET application

Despite what a lot of people believe, it's easy to introduce memory and resources leaks in .NET applications. The Garbage Collector, or GC for close friends, is not a magician who would completely relieve you from taking care of your memory and resources consumption.

I'll explain in this article why memory leaks exist in .NET and how to avoid them. Don't worry, I won't focus here on the inner workings of the garbage collector and other advanced characteristics of memory and resources management in .NET.

Error: Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing...TlbImp


Hi!  Can someone tell me how I can troubleshoot the following error: "Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing one of these assemblies".

The website developed in VS 2010 (.Net 3.5). This error is only received on my workstation.  Another person developing the site does not experience this issue at all.  Also, not sure if this matters, but on my workstation the 'Assembly Information...' dialog contains no values even though the 'AssemblyInfo.vb' file does specify values for the title, desc, etc.  The GUID being referenced in the error is the main project of the three projects within the solution.

I tried looking through the GAC, but do not see any references to the projects or DLLs in the VS solution and am not sure what else/where to look.

If I delete the copy of the solution on my local machine and pull down a copy from source control (AnkhSVN) the solution will build with no error.  Once I make any changes, such as adding a new aspx file, then the error is received.

I can provide any additional information needed.

SQL Security: New SQL Truncation Attacks And How To Avoid Them


Exploits using SQL injection have drawn a lot of attention for their ability to get through firewalls and intrusion detection systems to compromise your data layers. Whether it's a first-order or second-order injection, if you look at the basic code pattern, it is similar to any other injection issue where you use untrusted data in the construction of a statement.

Scale: Real-World Load Testing Tips to Avoid Bottlenecks When Your Web App Goes Live


Load testing should be part and parcel of every Web development effort, and it should be performed early in the process. However, if you think you can load test using your development environment, you're going to have some surprises when you go live. In this article, the authors outline the process of planning your load testing effort, considering which machines to use, how many users to simulate, which tools are right for you, and how to interpret your results.

Want to create Page URL rewrite based on Users GUID and Display name?



I am using the asp.net membership. 

On my site I have a Profile.aspx page.

In the code behind of this page,  i get the logged in UserId (Guid) and pass

this to a method in my DAL. GetUserByUserId()


In my database I have a Table called Member which the method gets the data from

and displays details on the page about  the user.


What I want to happen is when they have logged in and are diverted to Profile.aspx,

the page URL shows www.MyWebSite/Profile/UsersName 

for example



is this possible. In my Member table I have FirstName and LastName columns or do I get the

name from the membership table.


even better would be they go straight to www.MyWebsite/JohnSmith.aspx


thank you for any help






Failed to convert parameter value from a String to a Guid.


I am trying to get the UserRole from the logged in user and send it to the database table my code is:

SqlParameter FamilyFriendsOther = new SqlParameter("@Role", SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier);
        string [] roles = System.Web.Security.Roles.GetRolesForUser();
        if (roles.Length > 0)
            FamilyFriendsOther.Value = roles[0];

How do I avoid chunked encoding either in HttpListener or in SimpleWorkerRequest?



I am writing a simple web server that uses HttpListner (http.sys) as a listener and an output conduit, and a SimpleWorkerRequest to process ASP.NET requests. All works well, but when an application my server hosts outputs chunked response, ASP.NET calls SimpleWorkerRequest's SendResponseFromMemory() method and passes in data that is chunked-encoded. When I write the output to HttpListener's output stream, it gets chunk-encoded again, breaking the whole thing. So I ended up writing chunked decoder in the middle, which makes it inefficient because the response gets massaged three times instead of one:

  1. Chunked-encoded by ASP.NET HttpResponse, then
  2. Decoded by my code in the SimpleWorkerRequest.SendResponseFromMemory(), and
  3. Gets chunked-encoded again by writing to HttpListner's output stream.

My question is how do I tell either SimpleWorkerRequest or HttpListener not to chunk-encode the response so the encoding can be done only once by either of those? (Preferably, it's SimpleWorkerRequest that needs an option to pass the response to the web server without changing it so that HttpListener would encode all responses, whether the come from ASP.NET or not, for example from CGI request processor).

Thank you,

Gridview, guid ID, and Location


Presently I have a gridview, I'm in the process of populating the gridview. One colunm "Location" is displayed as the guid ID.  I need for that colunm to be displayed as the location. Here some of the code to display the grid.

myObject orgs = new myObject();
grid.DataSource = orgs;


orgs gets a list of organizations (locations) for the grid. How can I replace the guid ID with it location. Yes the guid ID and location are in a table.

return GUID

Hi,I am using LINQ.I have 2 methods.Method 1public Guid getUserIDByProfileCode(string pCode) { var user = from p in dc.OtherProfiles where p.ProfileCode == pCode select p.UserId; return user.FirstOrDefault(); }Method 2 public Guid getStudentUserId(int id) { var stdID = from p in dc.StudentProfiles where p.ID == id select p.UserId; return stdID.FirstOrDefault(); }The first method is ok. But the second method says "Can not implicitly convert System.GUID? to System.GUID. An explicit conversion exists (Are you missing a cast?)"What is the difference between these 2 mehtods?? how can I solve it?Error 2 Cannot implicitly convert type 'System.Guid?' to 'System.Guid'.

How to avoid network problems while calling a webservice in a SQL CLR trigger?

Hi All, My Goal: DB synchronization between SQL server 2005 and Mysql database via web services. I have created a SQLCLR trigger, in which i'm calling a web service to sync/update remote (MYSQL) DB over a specific constraints. After getting the acknowledgment from web service i'm updating the sync flag to success (In SQL SERVER2005). If any network delay happens i am unable to know whether sync has done successfully or not. How to avoid network dependency here? Is there any reliable queuing mechanism available in sql server 2005 to eliminate dependency over network? I am looking any suitable service/approach in sql server 2005 that can take care of calling web services as asynchronously and update the status of sync flag irrespective of network. Thanks in advance if anyone provide the good approach as step by step in detail.

How to avoid viewstate in page load event??

Hello Everyone, Here Is my scenario,I haveMaster Page -> ASPX page -> User ControlUser control page is contains all dynamic bind controls (e.g Repeater) depended on ASPX Page (Only one parameter say ItemNo) The problem is, if I bound user control on page load event with passing respective parameters then it's create to much view state (I checked source file and it's almost 1.5 MB) In other way if I put one textbox, and a command button and I pass required parameter on button click and load the control then page size is ok (I checked and it's  < 500KB) So is it any way I can reduce my page/state size??
