AddInStore.FindAddIns returning no tokens after upgrade to .NET 4.0

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

I have been fighting an issue since upgrading from .NET 3.5 projects to .NET 4.0 projects.  The code that I used to load the addins fails to find any of the AddInTokens after the projects are upgrade to .NET 4.0. 

I have tried loading the addins using the PipelineStoreLocation.ApplicationBase and by specifying the directories and neither option has worked.

Below is a snippet of code that I used to load the addins before. The method ChooseAddIn isn't all that interesting as it simply determines which AddInToken to use.  The issue I am having is that using .NET 3.5 the AddInStore

Returning datas from two excel file

   string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["xls"].ConnectionString;
        // Create the connection object 
        OleDbConnection oledbConn = new OleDbConnection(connString);
         // Open connection
            // Create OleDbCommand object and select data from worksheet Sheet1
            OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]", oledbConn);
            // Create new OleDbDataAdapter 
            OleDbDataAdapter oleda = new OleDbDataAdapter();
            oleda.SelectCommand = cmd;

Best Way to Upgrade Using Web Setup Project


Hi there,

I am using VS2005.

I don't have much experience with web setup projects, but I now need to create a decent windows installer in order to allow customers to install one of our web applications. I have created a simple web setup project and it works fine, but not when it comes to upgrades of the application.

If for instance I install version 1.0 on a machine, and then later I try to install version 2.0, I don't seem to have the control that I would like... I can specify in the web setup project that the installer must enforce an uninstall of previous version, but then all application files and logs are uninstalled as well. If I let the application just install itself over the older version, it seems to leave some old DLL's there - it then causes issues in the application because DLL version conflicts.

My basic requirement is that I would like th installer to upgrade the old version with all the files required, but leave any application and log files in tact - this way the customer won't have to reconfigure the application after install.

What is the best way to handle this?

Who Goes There?: Upgrade Your Site's Authentication with the New ASP.NET 2.0 Membership API


Here Dino Esposito and Andrea Saltarello cover the plumbing of the Membership API and its inherently extensible nature, based on pluggable providers. To demonstrate the features, they take an existing ASP.NET 1.x authentication mechanism and port it to ASP.NET 2.0, exposing the legacy authentication mechanism through the new Membership API.

An example of packaging web application containing database upgrade SQL file

A few months ago, we have a blog talking about extending the web publishing pipeline to package database project deployed SQL file.  In this blog, I'll show step by step example of packaging web application with SQL Server database upgrade SQL file using Visual Studio 2010.  This way, we can generate a web package with incremental SQL script to certain database version.  The scenario may help distributions of a web upgrade package which needs to be installed on many different locations, each with their own SQL server database.   1. Create a Web Application Project 2. Add a new "SQL Server 2008 Database Project" to the solution 3. Prepare a development database, such as my test1 database as the following: 4.

Entity Data Model and database view returning the same columns as there are in a table


When adding a stored procedure into the Entity Data Model I can select whether the procedure returns a scalar, a (new) complex type or one of the entity types I already defined. 

How do I do something similar for a view?

I mean assuming I have a view like this

CREATE VIEW FilteredFoos as SELECT Foo.* FROM Foo join ... WHERE ...

(that is a view that implements some involved filtering, but returns all columns from one table) how do I add it to the project so that I can use the entity set, but get the Foo objects, not some new FilteredFoo objects.

var foos = myDB.FilteredFoos.Include("Bar").ToList();

foreach (Foo foo in foos) { ...

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson

SPDataSource returning 0 results when used in CrossList Mode



I'm writing a web part in C# to query several document libraries, using a SPDataSource with the results going to a SPGridView.

I got the query to work just fine with a single document library, but when I switched the SPDataSource to CrossList mode (and added the "Web" and "Lists" tags to the query), I end up with no results. I've done a lot of digging around on the web for examples of how to do this correctly, but always end up with the same result, no hits.

These are the only properties I'm setting on the data source:


ds.DataSourceMode = SPDataSourceMode.CrossList;

ds.UseInternalName = true;

ds.SelectCommand = queryString;

The query string looks like this (I added the formatting for readability... the actual query string is all a single line):

<Webs Scope='SiteCollection'></Webs

Control Values When Returning to Page


Why do controls value not persist when returning to a page (e.g. via browser back button)?  If I set control values without utilizing a post back the controls will maintain their last value when I return to the page.  If I set a control value and then call a post back, the control value is reset to the default value when returning.

I have many pages with a gridview, and a textbox which is used to filter the gridview contents.  I set the filter textbox, filter the gridview (postback), go to another page, and when I return to the gridview page (via back button), my filter textbox is reset empty, and the gridview is the original (unfiltered) data.

What concept am I missing here?

Thanks in advance...

public ActionResult MethodB()
   //do stuff

  return View("Index);

What to do in this case ?

Upgrade SQL server 2008 R2 from Evaluation Edition to Enterprise Edition

Hello SQL Support group, I have SQl server 2008 R2 installed on a Win 2003 R2 and it is for our SharePoint and Project server 2007 environment. Today I noticed that we have only 75 days left! Seems like we installed it on evaluation mode. Here what we have on Helpàabout : Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Complete (expires in 75 days)    10.50.1352.12 We do have MSDN account, and we have the KEY that comes with the SQL server 2008 R2 enterprise. We would like to assign the key to our SQl server ( we want to have enterprise edition). It is in a production environment now. I would like to know how we can do it  with minimum of down time. I found this link: http://blogs.technet.com/b/sqlman/archive/2010/03/16/sql-server-2008-upgrading-to-standard-enterprise-edition-from-evaluation-edition.aspx On the internet, but doesn’t say anything that we are losing any data after upgrade or not. Please let us know the best way to assign the key, and if it has any impact in our data. Thanks Bahram
