.Net Framework zip package file

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Has anyone idea about .net package files?? I seriously have no clue about this & have asked to do a POC on this. I am told that this feature has come up along with .Net Framework 3.5 but couldn't find any pointer after googling even. It would be great if somebody can explain this & its usage??

Problem is that the ssis pkg runs succesful when i run it from BIDS, bust when I run is as ajon, it gets hung. It completes the first step, it is the sescond step that is get hung. I noticed that when i run from BIDs, it does come up with a window open file - security warning and says the publisher could not be verified, are you sure you want to run this software. why does it do that ??? the file I am asking to run is a .bat file. it should automatically use the cmd.exe app to run the bat file. Please help !!!   Thanks in advance.

How to run Package (for WSP) without Building First; or, how to Relocate a .wsp file after it is cre

I'm attempting to automatically move the .wsp package to a separate deployment folder (like you could with WSPBuilder) after it has been created.  I can't just do a copy after a successful build (in build events) because a normal build does not cause the .wsp to be built.  Also, I've tried calling MSBuild directly in the build events and used the /t:Package call, however this automatically includes a rebuild of the assemblies, so this does not work.  Is there a way to call the /t:Package command but exclude an assembly build?  Any other ways to move around the .wsp file? Thanks.

if ssis package writes to excel file that might be open by a user

I have written a package that writes to an excel file to a network folder. Eventually this package will run as a job.

SSIS package - change Web reference's addres from Configuration file?

Greetings. The SSIS packages provide very nice options to configure them from an XML file, which allows to change credentials, database names etc w/o editing the package. This lets me, say, transfer package from one server to another or from test to production w/o any hassle - just changing the xml. Problem is, i need to acces a web service in my package, and built-in SSIS web service task is useless and just SUCKS. It fails to work even with miscrosoft's own sharepoint web service. So, i have to use scripting task. And scripting task uses "web reference" to access web services, which in turn gives no way to change it's url.  So, if i want to test and then move to production, i'll have to edit my package to change the web reference url from "testserver:5123/mywebservice" to "productionserver:81/webservices/mywebservice". And then change it again to test it again. Etc. Is there a solution to this? A way to programmatically change web reference's url from inside scripting task?

Opening vs2008 solution file in vs2010 - Framework targeting issue


Hey guys,

I am opening a vs2008 .sln file inside vs2010 - the conversion wizard shows up, and it goes through with no errors other than a pop up warning me that this solution needs .Net Framework 3.5 and that it is "not installed on this machine" - I chose to target it to .Net Framework 4.0 and to try to switch it later as an option.

I then bring up Properties - >Application -> Target Framework and in the dropdown, .Net Framework 3.5 is not listed - which is strange since in "Add or Remove Programs" I can see .Net Framework 3.5 is installed on my machine.

How can I get Framework 3.5 to show up in the dropdown so I can target this project to that framework?

Can't say I've ever done this, so I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong.


Update: I tried Method #1 here (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/robvi/archive/2004/02/17/75272.aspx) and I cannot see v3.5 - so where did it go? I'm confused why it is not in my registry but shows up in "Add or Remove Programs" list...


SSIS 2K5 - Deploy SSIS Package with C# - Error File cannot be found



I made a installer program in C# that deploy ssis package on a SQL server 2005. I have like 50 package that contain only dataflow to update a datawarehouse and create fact tables.

I made also one package that call all the other packages. When I try to deploy the packages on the SQL server with the command SaveToDtsServer, I receive an error BUT only on the package calling all the other SSIS package ?? All the other SSIS packages are deployed but the package that call other packages failed to deploy. Whats strange is that when I use the domain controler to deploy the package (I use Impersonation in my C# code) its all working fine, but if I use another user (like the computer admin account), I got the error only on the package calling other packages ???

Can anyone help me on that ? I really don't know whats happening ?

The error that i have is : The file can't be found. But like I said, when using the domain controler user for impersonation, its working ???



    imp = new Impersonation(session["DBMASTER"], session["DBMASTER_PWD"]);

Create Excel file dynamically in SSIS package and fill it by resultset data returned by Stored proce


Hello Every One,

I have a scenario in which i am executing a Stored Procedure which returned a result set.

So every time when package run new file is created with unique name.


Can any one suggest me who to create Excel file and fill result set data into Excel file.

And then finally send that Excel file ?







Package configuration file with multiple connection strings


I am using the configuration file to read the connection string in the SSIS packages. In one of my packages i have to use two different connection strings. If i specify the second connection string in the config file, then the current package works well but other packages fails during validation saying the second connection manager does not exist in the package. Is it not possible to have multiple connection string in a single config file?

SSIS: Error in the package when the data in the flat file source is modified


Hi All,

I have a package which loads data from a flat file source to an OLEDB destination, which is executed successfully and data is loaded perfectly.

But later when the data in the flat file source is modified i.e. if an extra column gets added to the text file, the package is throwing an error because it is unable to detect the extra added column.

How can i avoid this error??? I need my package to execute successfully ignoring the changes(added columns) happened in the flat file source.

Please provide me wth your suggestions and solutions....

Thanks in Advance!!

Using SQL CE 3.5 in a framework 4.0 environment. Missing file msvcr80.dll


Hi, we have an application that use SQL CE 3.5, distributed to several desktop machines via clickonce. The application has the framework 4.0 as prerequisite. To redistribute SQL CE 3.5 we followed the instructions provided at this page : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa983326.aspx in the section "Private File–Based Deployment".

On one client machine, with XP SP3, and only framework 1.1 and framework 4.0 installed, we got an error, because the dll "msvcr80.dll" required by "sqlceme35.dll" was not found.

I remark that .net framework 2.0 and 3.5 are NOT installed on that machine.


Is there any prerequisite that we can add in the Visual Studio project that contains msvcr80.dll and any other dll required by SQL CE 3.5?
