VS 2005 web deployment projects in TF build 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

We have a VS 2005 web deployment project that builds fine in TF 2005 producing a fully precompiled web site.

We have migrated the project to VS 2010 and created a TF 2010 build based on the upgrade template to carry out our existing 2005 build script.

We have downloaded and installed the 2010 Web Deployment Projects RTW (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=89f2c4f5-5d3a-49b6-bcad-f776c6edfa63&displaylang=en) on the build server.

However, the web deploy project does not build in the team build.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Need advice on updating SQL Server 2005 Build 09.00.4035 to Build 09.00.4220 for SharePoint 2010


Hello SQL Server specialists,


Please give me some advice on updating my SQL 2005 Server Build 09.00.4035 to Build 09.00.4220 (Cumulative update 3 ) for SharePoint 2010.

I'm stuck with the following questions:

Will I need to install previous cumulative updates in order to install cumulative update 3?

Has anyone installed SharePoint 2010 on an SQL 2005 Server before, any things I should consider when doing this?

Build 09.00.4220 (Cumulative update 3 ) is the minimum build needed to install SharePoint 2010 is it ok to run with the minimum build or would you recommend me to update to another build ?

I'm looking forward for your advice!


Kind Regards,


Web Application Deployment with Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2005?



Is it possible to do a web application deployment(create package/publish sql & package/publish web) with Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2005?

I'm trying my  hand at this new feature - I have an application created in VS2010 and the backend is SQL Server 2005

I read on msdn that the pre-requisites for the database part of the web application deployment is SQL Server Express 2008 or later versions for the tutorial they posted...Is that mandatory for any deployments??

Thanks for your help! Smile


How to get more information about the exceptions that can happen in SharePoint 2010 projects?

In case there is an exception anywhere in the SharePoint 2010 project (most common place an exception would happen is during deployment of your SharePoint project, custom deployment configuration or custom deployment steps), there's a registry key EnableDiagnostics available for you to use.

VS.NET 2010 Not opening all associated projects with solution all of the sudden

I have a VS.NET 2010 solution (.sln) containing (3) separate projects (.vbproj).  All of the sudden today when I open the solution (manually navigate to the .sln file of the solution; not a quick link), only 1 of the projects is opening.  Before I totally mess this thing up, anyone know of the proper process to get all of the projects and the solution itself to open up and display in the 'Solution Explorer' window?

Visual Studio 2010, MVC2.0, IIS7, .NET4 deployment problem

I have a problem where I can get an MVC2.0 application using .NET3.5 running in IIS, but when I upgrade it to .NET4.0, the browser just reports error 500 Internal Server Error. The problem is easy to replicate as follows.  Firstly, to show it works with .NET3.5: Create a new MVC2.0 application in Visual Studio 2010, using the inbuilt starter template. Run the application using the development server, and the Home & About pages display fine. Publish the application to a directory. Copy the directory to a subdirectory under inetpub/wwwroot on my Vista computer, running IIS7 Create a new application in IIS Manager & select the DefaultAppPool (integrated pipeline) Browse the application and Home & About pages are displayed. Then the problem I have is after upgrading to .NET4.0: Change to .NET4.0 for the project in Visual Studio Build & this runs fine with the development server. Publish the application & set up IIS as before, except choosing the application pool ASP.NET v4.0 (integrated pipeline) Browse the application, and I get the 500 Internal Server Error I'm guessing there is some extra configuration required - can anyone help? I've deliberately used the default MVC installation to eliminate any variables caused by my programming .. Thanks in advance, Steve

Procedure to move all SP 2010 databases from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 R2

I have a single SharePoint 2010 WFE with a single SQL 2005 64-bit backend.  I need to decomission the SQL 2005 server.  What is the best procedure to move all the SharePoint associated databases to SQL 2008 R2? I have already read this MS doc on moving all databases: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc512725.aspx So the actual move procedure is standard SQL fodder. What I'm not clear about is what to do about the "other" SharePoint databases and how to reassociate them once the DBs are on the new SQL server.  For example, the Usage and Health DB is going to "Wss_Logging" and it specifies my old SQL server.  It is greyed so I cannot chagne it in Central Admin.  How do I let SharePoint know that these databases have been moved too?

Problems with interaction between MS VS 2010 and MS SQL 2005

This is extremely frustrating.  I had bought MS VS 2005, years ago, and generally liked it.  I installed MS SQL 2005 (developer's edition) and found it easy to work with (though I haven't figured out how to create new login credentials on it - but that isn't a problem in my present context).  It appears to me that my problem is due to the clients for SQL server being incorporated and hidden somewhere inthe interface of MSVS 2010 from being apparently individual programs I am familiar with using. My employer just bought me a new machine (because my existing workstation was too heavily loaded), and required me to install both MS VS 2005 and MS VS 2010.  As part of my installation of MS VS 2005 on this machine, I installed MS SQL Server 2005 (but had forgotten to install teh corresponding clients).  And then I installed MSVS 2010.  When I noticed the clients I was used to  had not been installed, I went to install them and failed with an error message that a more recent version had been installed.  The old machine is runnign Windows XP and the new one is using Windows 7 Pro, if that matters. The problem is that I can not find the equivalent of Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio in MS VS 2010.  So I am at loss as to where the tools are in VS2010 to create new databases, tables, &c.  More annoyingly, I can not find the

Using Freeware SharePoint Foundation 2010 with BLOB extender for large scale deployment project.

Hi Everyone, If I'd like to deploy SharePoint 2010 Foundation with Express DB (no SQL Server) what's the limitation ? and suppose i have implemented BLOB extender from freeware 3rd partyhttp://www.avepoint.com/sharepoint-storage-extender-docave/ does that means i can deploy more than 4 GB of data and it should perform faster since the SQL Express is not loaded with BLOB (document binaries). Can anyone clarify this matter please ? Thanks. /* Infrastructure Support Engineer */

Using the FindMatchingFiles activity when creating Team Build 2010 workflows

Has anyone figured out how to create complex pattern matches for the FindMatchingFiles activity that duplicate MSBuild's use of ItemGroup inclusion and exclusions? I want to be able to select all the assemblies in a folder, but not the debug symbols or XML files, but it seems to me that FindMatchingFiles's MatchPattern only supports basic inclusions and not exclusions.
