CSSFriendly Menu Not working on publishing to Server 2003+iis6

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

Apology for repeated posting. This was posted by error on Configuration and deployment forum:
After months of work I thought I had finished with my web application using VS2008 with CSSFriendly menu. On publishing, the menu did not work and I got all sorts of errors. Deleting  CSSFriendlyAdapters.browser in App_Browsers folder improved the layout but the menu was not rendered with css even though the html source shows thet are linked. On desperation, I changed the target Framework from 3.5 to 2.0 and then back to 3.5 with no avail. I really appreciate any help on this - I canot afford to lose another day on this problem.

asp menu working fine in the dev environment but not on server

Hi guys,        I am sorry to be asking what is probably a really stupid question, but i have a problem with my asp menu, when i run it on my dev machine(thru vs2010) it works perfectly, all the menu's are displayed correctly with the correct child items in the correct order but when i publish it to the server all the menu items become flat and take up the whole page. I am populating the menu using a reentrant function as follows to call the function and add the menus i am using Dim childMenuItems As List(Of MenuItem) = CreateMenuLevel(0, uniquemenulist)childMenuItems.ForEach(Sub(n) NavigationMenu.Items.Add(n)) Public Function CreateMenuLevel(ByVal parentId As Integer, ByVal menulist As List(Of MenuList)) As List(Of MenuItem)        Dim menuItems As New List(Of MenuItem)        For Each menuListItem As MenuList In menulist.Where(Function(n) n.ParentId = parentId)            Dim MenuItem As New MenuItem            If (Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(menuListItem.PagePath)) Then                MenuItem.NavigateUrl = menuListItem.PagePath

.Net Framework 4 on Windows Server 2003/IIS6: where is the assembly folder ??

I installed and configured Framework4 on a Windows Server 2003 Standard SP2
following this guide:

SQL Server Compact v3.5 SqlCeEngine.Upgrade method not working on PocketPC 2003/Windows Mobile 2003

When trying to use the SqlCeEngine.Upgrade(string connectionString) method i get the following exception:

The Parameter is incorrect.
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeEngine.ProcessResults()
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeEngine.Repair()
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeEngine.Upgrade()
at Vbi.Compact.ErbisPda.Client.Program.Main()

The same code works like a charm on a Windows Mobile 2005 device. I installed "SQL Server Compact v3.5 Core" and "SQL Server Compact v3.5 Repl" on both devices, the WCE4/Armv4 version on Pocket PC 2003 and the WCE5/Armv4i version on Windows Mobile 2005.

I am hoping someone can help me with this problem, its being a showstopper.

[edit]Please note that i am using v3.5 and not v3.5 SP1. This is because for some of our data access we use a 3rd party library that needs v3.5 without SP1. Also i didn't run across above problem when i deployed my application from Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (debugging), it does occur on a clean system with only the two mentioned SQL Server Compact cabs installed and our app.[/edit]

Windows Server 2003: Discover Improved System Info, New Kernel, Debugging, Security, and UI APIs


There's a lot to say about Windows Server 2003. First of all, it's the first operating system with built-in .NET Framework support, and it's the first 64-bit OS from Microsoft. But wait, there's more! There are lots of new features and APIs in this version as well. For instance, Windows Server 2003 features Hot Add Memory and a number of other arcane new tidbits. There are new APIs for handling threads, directories, and files, and new features like the low fragmentation heap for managing memory and system information. There's vectored exception handling and new UI APIs as well.OS internals expert Matt Pietrek takes a look at the additions he finds most interesting and useful so you'll have a good place to start when you dive into Windows Server 2003.

Security Briefs: Exploring S4U Kerberos Extensions in Windows Server 2003


Building Web sites that provide services external to the corporate firewall is tricky. Usually it's not desirable to grant corporate domain accounts to external clients, and from a purely practical standpoint Kerberos does not work well over the Internet due to the typical configuration of client-side firewalls.

Office Sharepoint Server Search not working but Windows Server Search is.

I am having an annoying Issue with the Sharepoint 2007 Enterprise search functionality. I cannot get the Search Centre to work, the out of the box webparts crash the page except the Searchbox when the others are closed. The event viewer shows up numerous Errors (Office Sharepoint Server - EventID 7080) returns with and the same when trying to add a search related web part (e.g. core.results, federated etc). EventID 6398 - Timer is a regular as is 7080. Details below.

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified).

Remote connections are connected, I am not 100% on the Instance name, (how would I go about checking this?)

Also I cannot access the link to SharedServices1 - Open Shared Services Admin site (not clickable), guess it's permissions but I seem to have full site permissions, I think I need SSP-Admin to make more edits to the Search, maybe this is related :s

Both Search Servers are runnig, I have tried everything I can think of to fix this and allow the Search Centre to work.

I am running Sharepoint 2007 on SQL Server 2008.
