how to connect a server whiole installing a windows application setup?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework


During installation the Application will be setup to communicate with a particular server, and prompt the user to supply an Account Number and Password which will be used to retrieve that client’s details from the Internal Application. Therefore the computer onto which the Client Application is being installed must be online during installation. As the installation may not occur without these details, the screen requesting the Account Number and Password could be the first screen after the introduction screen. Installation may not precede without connectivity or the retrieved client details.

During installation a printer selection screen must also be displayed, where the user may select,

 The thermal printer  and the dot matrix printer (for bulk printing, if relevant).


PC’s, onto which the application will be installed, will be locked with software prior to the application being installed on it. Thi

How to setup windows server 2008 to enable socket communication?

I wrote a simple socket program, which listens to the 82 port, then receives and sends data through it. I tested the program on my local machine and it works fine, but after I published the program onto my windows server 2008, it does not work anymore. I guess it should be the firewall causing the problem, so I added rules to allow 82 port for both in and out bound, and I also add my application to the allowed program list for passing firewall, but still doesn't work, how could I solve it?   The windows server 2008 machine has a public network IP address, while my workstation is in a local network without public IP address, I connect to server 2008 through a router which has a public IP address. Is that the problem?   thanks! Regards! directfriends.net

Don't see tab and toolbar of the report manager application after installing sql server reporting s

Hello everyone: I have tried to install and configure Reporting Service. I found lots of  errors along the way. The first one was an error (500.23) from IIS7. I applied the suggested solution on the IIS screen which was migrating configuration using AppCmd ( %SystemRoot%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd migrate config "Default Web Site/"). Next problem was  : Request is not available in this context Stack Trace: [HttpException (0x80004005): Request is not available in this context] System.Web.HttpContext.get_Request() +3465893 Microsoft.ReportingServices.UI.Global.get_ConfigurationManager() +47 Microsoft.ReportingServices.UI.GlobalApp.Application_Start(Object sender, EventArgs e) +32  This error was caused by the fact that Report Server and Report Manager were configured to DefaultAppPool in the Reporting Service Configuration Manager. I have switched to Classic .Net AppPool  for both Report Server and Report Manager and it has fixed the problem. Now my problem is that the Report Manager Application ( http://localhost/reports/folders.aspx ) shows no tab, toolbar or folder. What I now have on the Report Manage Application page is the header with the title and [home] and [Help] button links on the top right corner. I have made a report to test the problem but no folder shows o

Error installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 machine

HI all, I'm installing the Developer edition of MS SQL Server 2008 R2 (downloaded today) on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit virtual machine (using VMWare Workstation 6.5).  Yesterday I had tried MS SQL Server 2008 R0 with the same results.  Both give an error about 30% into the installation process: "An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'VSLangProj80,Version="",PublicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a",Culture="neutral",FileVersion="8.0.50727.1826"' When I click the OK button, the install rolls that last bit back and then continues.  Unfortunatly I didn't take a screenshot of the main install window, just the error window. Any ideas what this error means?  The install yesterday seemed to work, but I'm not through the R2 install yet.  The R0 install also failed to install the documentation for some reason (I left it running during the night) Note that I have VS2010 (original release plus downloaded updates) installed and then just some small stuff like Snagit and Skype on this VM.  I updated Windows 7 completely before I started installing R2 so it is completely up to date as of midnight!

Enabling Windows Authentication to SQL Server using Application Pool Credentials

I have created a WCF Service (VS2008), an application pool account which has the access to the SQL Server(in remote machine). Configured the App Pool account to the Virtual Directory in IIS (Version 6.0). Once I browse through the SVC file, I can see the WSDL file. I have the "Windows Authentication" and the 'Anonymous authentication" Checked in the Properties for the Virtual Directory. But when I access service through Client, I get "The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Negotiate,NTLM'.". Binding that is being used is HTTPBinding. I have set the Identity Impersonate to True as well. Bottom line is - I need to use the App Pool account to connect to the SQL Server. Could some one please help me in this?  

Windows 7, SQL Server 2008 Express & VWD 2008 Express Setup Problems

Hi I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and Visual Web Developer Express 2008 (which came with SP1) installed. SQL Server 2008 Express never worked - Windows 7 won't allow the Management Studio to be installed and VWD was asking for SQL Server 2005.  Looking on the web, I found advice to try the 32 bit version of SQL Server instead.  This would work with VWD, apparently.  I referred to these instructions (http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/3/163A851B-D956-42E9-B426-F5C0EBE6B654/ReleaseNotes.htm) and used the latest links and instructions, but I could not install SQL Server at all - apparently something to do with WOW64... This has been going on for a WHILE and I'm going nuts.  I am reluctant to uninstall VWD and start again, because I had to manually fix a few things, and now it's working...  PLEASE can someone tell me of a working configuration, I have read SO MUCH advice on this, and none works, including those release notes (unless I missed something) :(
