2008 R2 Upgrade Advisor from command prompt fails


I've run the 2008 R2 Upgrade Advisor (from the GUI) successfully, finding several upgrade issues in a run which takes around 20 minutes. When I run the command prompt version of the tool, using the config file created by the GUI run, it returns immediately with no error message and having created no report. Here's the command:

C:\>"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Upgrade Advisor\UpgradeAdvisorWizardCmd.exe" -ConfigFile "C:\Documents and Settings\MyLogin\My Documents\SQLServer 2008 R2 Upgrade Advisor Reports\MyServer\Config.xml"

Why is the command doing nothing? I need this to automate my pre-upgrade analysis work.

How do I install and run MSDE2000A (mssql$netsdk) on the command prompt of Windows 7?


Hello. I'm trying to install MSDE2000A on a Windows 7 machine, and the database book I'm using described doing so through the command line. First I installed it to C:\< folder >. Everything went fine (except for a Windows 7 compatibility issue notice), until I started to actually run it. I was in the directory in the command line, and I typed net start mssql$netsdk. As a result I get the response

"System error 5 has occurred.

Acess is denied."

After trying to look up a solution, I found that Windows 7 had an issue with developer stuff being put outside of users' directories, so then I installed it again, this time in C:\Users\< username >\< folder >. The same problem occurred.

Where do I go from here?


Resources for soup-to-nuts of website development lifecycle



 I'm looking for a website, or book, or some resource that can lead me down the path from website design to implementation/deployment. I know that covers a ton of material, but I am really looking for the bullet points, or high-lights, to make sure that I think of everything. I am mostly fuzzy on security measures and deployment since I haven't been involved in those aspects before.

Background:  I have been a programmer for many years, and with a little over 3 years' experience coding websites in vb.net/asp.net with sql server. Due to recent restructuring/layoffs at our firm, I find myself in the position of lead IT person - I'm feeling a bit underqualified but I feel this is my chance to work hard and step up to it. I'm very good at vb.net, master pages, css, asp.net, sql server. I'm worried that the person who was the lead before was doing a bunch of stuff that I'm not aware of...so I need to start learning more than just the code. I don't need lessons on how to code anything...I need to learn how it all gets put together - the next step up.

thanks for any suggestions!

Row command working on all rows not selected one?



I have this code that hides a column in a gridview.  (The column houses another nested gridview).

    Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "Select" Then
            If GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False Then
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = True
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

The trouble is that if I click the select link on one row that action to hide is carried out on all rows.  How can I set this up so that it only hides the row that is selected?


Why isn't my Views/Home/Home.Master file published when I publish my website?


Hi All,

I spent the better part of today hunting down an elusive error.  I was getting a message saying that it couldn't find the Index view for the Home controller, and it gave a list of locations it searched, e.g., ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx.  This was really confusing as the file definitely existing and was at ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx, the first place in the list of locations it searched for the view!

What I eventually discovered was that there was a file that did not get published when I used Visual Studio's "Publish" feature (this is on the "Build" menu).  That file was Views/Home/Home.master, and (as you can probably guess) is the master file used by Views/Home/Index.aspx.

Once I copied that file into place manually, it started working.  But I am left wondering--why???  Why does this file not get published?  It's a part of my project, I can see it in the solution explorer, and it's obviously a critical file that's necessary for the MVC app to run.  It has the same permissions as every other file in my project.  So why wouldn't it get copied?  And how can I fix it so it does get copied?

Thanks for any suggestions on this!

VS2010 Professional .NET 4.0 Remote Debugging ASP Website Project


Trying to remote debug ASP website from VS2010 Pro to Windows Server 2003 machine.  Specifically, trying to debug a Web Service, but breakpoint says, "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document."  This happens for all compiled code though.  I have read this is due to missing PDB files and the work around is to manually copy them, as noted here.  Problem is, I cannot find any PDB files for my project, except referenced libraries, which I can remote debug.


  • web.config has <compilation debug="true">
  • Debugger is attached to wewp.exe process on remote server
  • Installed VS2010 remote debugger from DVD (as I can remote debug referenced libraries)

This is beyond frustrating.  I migrated my code from VS2008 .Net3.5 to VS2010 .Net4.0 to take advantage of the inherent multithreading framework.  Debugging works when using local host and was stable until deployment to test server.

Thanks in advance,


Creating a user friendly alias for the website path


 Hello mates,

I am hosting my ASP.NET application on a Windows 2003 Server.

To browse to my application one has to type the path :http://serverName/applicationName

I want users to only type  applicationName on the web adress area.I believe there is something to do with alias and CNAME on DNS records that can adress this.

Any help on how to go about doing this will be highly appreciated.
