VS2010 Extension Manager won't open - error given. Please Help

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I am getting this error when I try to open the Extension Manager from VS2010 Ultimate:

The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name Microsoft Visual Studiomust be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.

I had used the reset previously to correct it:

1 - Reset the skipped packages: From an elevated command-line prompt, run "devenv /ResetSkipPkgs" from under "\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE"

This no longer works for me. I also tried:

2 - Revert back to the general settings: From the Tools menu, go to "Import and Export Settings". Select "Reset settings". Make sure to backup your current settings if you have done any customization. Select "General Settings". Finish the wizard and see if the problem is resolved.

I cannot open my Extension Manager - Please Help. I really need to get this working.

thanks in advance!

Crystall Report error VS2010



i write a site and get this error, i using VS2010.

  • An error occurred during local report processing.
    • The definition of the report 'Modules\Report1.rdlc' is invalid.
      • An unexpected error occurred in Report Processing.
        • Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.ReportViewer.ProcessingObjectModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

i try run on my machine its all work fine, but when i complier and run it on Window server 2008 get this error.

I read http://forums.asp.net/p/1513402/3613239.aspx I install the ReportViewer.exe but still cannot find the Microsoft.ReportViewer.ProcessingObjectModel.dll, however I got find it Microsoft.ReportViewer.ProcessingObjectModel in C:\Windows\assembly and is not a dll file. any suggestion?



Controllers AccountController IFormsAuthentication MVC 2 error vs2010


I finally got around to trying vs2010 and MVC 2 ... I'm glad I did not put them on a production computer.

My first compile (I have not had a chance to investigate because I just did this and I am too tired).

All I did was create a MVC 2 solution with MSTEST Unit Testing selected too.

I compiled it and get four unexpected errors (because I have heard ASP.NET MVC 2 "alpha" and vs2010 Beta 2 are supposed to be somewhat robust):

In both HomeController and AccountController:

"The type or namespace name "Controllers" does not exist ins the namespace "mvczzzzz001" occurs twice, once for HomeController.cs and once for AccountController.cs.

AccountControllerTest.cs has two errors:  can not find "AccountController" namespace and can not find "IFormsAuthentication" namespace.

With ASP.NET MVC v1.0 there are errors when one uses xUnit.net (version at time of ASP.NET MVC v1.0 RTM) as the test framework but not errors with MSTEST (I prefer xUnit.net to MSTEST).

I am just so surprised to find such errors in vs2010 + MVC 2 ....

is this happening to anyone else?????????????????

Thank you ~~ regards, Gerry (Lowry)

WPF+ VS2010: Design mode error "The URI prefix is not recognized"?

our application uses VS2008 and WPF. To apply the styles in the design mode, we have used the "BlendMergedDictionary" class (see the following link) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/995101/how-do-i-get-wysiwyg-design-in-blend-vs-without-merged-resourcedictionary-in-ever It works very well in VS2008 IDE.

Printer Delivery Extension Error

I am trying to get the Printer Delivery Sample to work, and I have made all the changes, created the DLL, and changed the config files. It works if I am logged on to the server as the server admin, but if I try to run it from my workstation, I get this error, yet I am an admin on the SSRS system (I get the "Site Settings" link in the upper corner). SSRS is running under a domain account, and the printers are installed on the server under the same domain account. A subscription delivery error has occurred. (rsDeliveryError) One of the extension parameters is not valid for the following reason: Printer \\server\printer is not currently installed (rsInvalidExtensionParameter) Any thoughts why it works on the server, and not remotely? Thanks Rick
