Very slow regasm.exe and aspnet_regiis.exe make a setup timeout.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Hello, I originally posted my problem in the Exchange forum, but I think that it is an ASP.NET issue. The Exchange setup launch "aspnet_regiis -config+" command with maximum timeout of 120 seconds. If I manually launch the command, it take 240 seconds for a successful résult. I found that this command use regasm.exe, witch take 3.5 Minutes just for help (regasm.exe /?) All details are on : http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/exchange2010/thread/70d8cbfa-6e9e-47be-87b8-969ad1a581aa Can you help me ? Syncerely Yours, David.MCSE, MCITP Exchange 2K7 & 2K10

What is the standard practice to make sure one slow-running page doesn't affect other pages?

Page A loads very fast; Page B loads very slowly and does some CPU-intensive things on the web server.I noticed that if someone is loading Page B, then Page A also loads slowly - for ALL users. What is the standard practice for making sure this doesn't happen?  If multiple users are loading Page B at the same time then Page A is ridiculously slow.Is there an IIS setting, web.config setting, or hardware configuration I could use to make sure that the fast-loading pages aren't bogged down by other pages that need more time to load?

slow query, proper db setup, indexes, tables

I have a large set (~10 million) of time series data (date, time, and value) stored in text files.   These dates and times may repeat.   I would like to move these to a database (or several databases) and access them from a program.  I have sort of done this, the problem is that retrieving the data takes too long (say 30s).  I'd like to reduce the time it takes to access the data.

The steps I've done are:

1) Create a new database using SSMS.
2) Read in all of the year 2010 data into a new table
3) Accessed the data with the LINQ query from c#:
var timeSeriesData =
                from point in context.2010s
                where (new DateTime(point.Date.Year, point.Date.Month, point.Date.Day, point.Time.Hour, point.Time.Minute, point.Time.Second, point.Time.Millisecond)).CompareTo(_MinimumDateTime) >= 0
                    && (new DateTime(point.Date.Year, point.Date.Month, point.Date.Day, point.Time.Hour, point.Time.Minute, point.Tim

Reporting Services 2008 R2 - slow response on first report and after a certain timeout period


We are using Reporting Services 2008 R2.

We have a Windows Forms client with a main form using a webbrowser control to display the report Home page provided by Reporting Services.

We are finding that the loading of this page is very inconsistent. The first time we load the Windows Forms client at the start of the day the page takes too long, more than 10 seconds. After the first access, the Home Page displays in less than a second. If we don't access the Reporting Services for 20 minutes (estimate), we are back to the 10 seconds for initial load. Can someone explain what is going on?

We have tried to create a subscription to a simple report, this didn't help. We tried to create a console app to make a web request to the reporting services url every 10 minutes, this didn't help. We have looked at the rsreportserver.config and the RecycleTime entry put that doesn't really make sense why this would need to be increased considering it's at 12 hours by default. The issue that we seem to be having is happening on a shorter interval.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!

How to setup a Mobile Browser Emulator in Windows Mobile 6:

In the following tutorial, I cover the process of Setting up Windows Mobile 6 for Mobile Browser Emulation using the Microsoft Device Emulator. This enables a user to experience Windows Mobile 6 on a PC via Emulation without even owning a Windows Mobile 6 product. It can be a great way to test drive Windows Mobile 6 before purchasing a product with it installed. In our case, it allowed us to Emulate Windows Mobile Browsing so that we could optimize our sites for the Mobile viewing audience. Installation and Emulation is simple and fairly straight forward.

Response.Redirect slow


I'm in the middle of migrating servers and on the new server Response.Redirect is extremely slow. It takes around 20 seconds for the browser to get the redirect. This is something that was quick on the existing server. It's an ASP.NET 2.0 application, both servers are running IIS6.

Additionally, if I "manually" do the redirect, it's fast. For example:

Existing way:


takes around 20 seconds on the new server

New way:

Response.Status = "302 Moved Temporarily";
Response.AddHeader("Location", url);

is fast on the new server.

Any ideas why Response.Redirect would be so slow on the new server?

Beginner: this doesn't make sense to me


Do you need and "empty" script tag in the head to run scripts that are in the body?  Also, can you run JQuery scripts if they're in the <head> tag?  The first sample only works if the JQuery script is in the form (and body) tag, not in the head - even if I add $(document).ready(function() { });

This works

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" />
<script type="text/javascript">
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<a href="">Here is a link</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
$('a').click(function () {
alert("you clicked me!");


This doesn't work.  Notice I removed the second <script> tag from the head

VS 2010 Pro is slow



I was wondering if anybody else is finding VS 2010 extremely slow loading a solution - and it pretty much renders the rest of the machine useless until loaded. Everything is slowed to a halt.

I upgraded from VS 2005 - now I think I made a terrible mistake. I cannot afford to try and load 2 solutions simultaneously.

The machine is a Core2 Duo E8400, 3GB of RAM, WinXP SP3. Max I can go to is 4GB. Would upgrading to a 64-bit OS really be worth it (actually only to get 8GB of RAM)?

I'm hoping someone else has found a solution to this particular problem.

Can this code be setup to run against the whole database instead of just 1 record at a time?


We have made some changes to this code to start capturing 1 new field of data and updating it as new records are added. But there is currently about 120,000 records more or less.. those records of course dont have the new field populated with anything..

We would like to run this logic that already in place and run it against the tables to update the fields 1 time. I think to make it easier, if it can be setup to expect the "valueTwo" variable, so that we can run it againt the individual codes instead of doing all the records at one time.. there are codes that only have a few records, so it would be best to test initially against the small code group.


            strSqual = "insert into trans (trans_type_name, trans_date,sys_id,mod_user_id,show_ind, remoteCode, techName) values('" & valueTwo & "','" & TransDate & "',"&strSystemID&", 1,'T', '" & dbQuote(strUser) & "', '" & strTechName & "')"        
            'get the new transaction_id out for just inserted alarm   
            strSqual = "select max(transaction_id) as transaction_id from trans"  
            set rst = getStaticRecordSet(strSqual)

SQL 2008 timeout


I am recently getting a timeout exception when executing this method. This table stores images and it might be due to the size of the table. I have no idea! Help!

Need Syntax To Make Results of LINQ Union Return Non-Generic Type



I have the below SQL which works just fine:

SELECT     Message, CreateDate, AccountId, AlertTypeId
FROM       dbo.Alerts
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT Status, CreateDate, AccountId,
                          (SELECT     10 AS Expr1) AS AlertTypeId
FROM         dbo.StatusUpdates
WHERE AccountId = PassedInParameter

I have been going about trying to convert the above into a LINQ method and am having problems with return types.
As the above SQL illustrates, I am querying two distinct LINQ tables - Alerts and StatusUpdates -
and then attempting to perform a Union on them. In order to do the union in LINQ, I have to have agreeing types. So, I
am using "var" to make the results of "alerts" and "updates" generic before the union.  

public IList GetStatusUpdatesAsAlertsByAccountId<T>(Int32 accountId)
            using (WorkbookDataContext dc = _conn.GetCont

Unable to make connection to database?


Hy guys. I try to connect my database for so long so i wrote two type of codes. Let's discuse first on.

I have database called PhoneDirectory.

It have only one table named Residents.

I have button wiht ID="Button1".

I want when i click this button to see all of my residents. 

I want to see the result in DetailsView and to be able to edin, delete and add new resident.

First try with SqlDataSource so i wrote this:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="Resident Details" runat="server" ProviderName="System.Data.SqlClient" ConnectionStrings="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ThisIsTheConnection%>" 
              SelectCommand = "SELECT * FROM Resident "

ReadXML Timeout


I am reading an XML file from an external URL and putting it into a dataset that is the populates a repeater. This works fine when I run it locally, however on the published web site I receive A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time error messages.

However, if i type the URL directly into a browser, I get the XML file almost immeadately which leads me to believe that I am going about this the wrong way or I need to some how to extend the timeout period.

Here is my code:

Protected Sub ButtonValidate_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ButtonValidate.Click
        If Page.IsValid = False Then
        End If

        TableCellVATSIMIDResults.Text = "<br />VATSIM ID Validation Results for <i>" & TextBoxVATSIMID.Text & "</i>"
        Dim DataSetVATSIMValidation As New DataSet
        DataSetVATSIMValidation.ReadXml("http://cert.vatsim.net/cert/vatsimnet/idstatus.php?cid=" & TextBoxVATSIMID.Text)
