Problems converting VS 2003 project to VS 2008



I'm having problems converting a VS 2003 project to VS 2008 (tried 2005 as well, same problem). There are several problems;
a) I don't have VS 2003 installed.
b) The project is a web service, however I'm not sure what type of VS project it was created as.
c) The general knowledge about the project setup is..slim.

I get a error message using the conversion wizard, however, I'm not familiar with the tool and I cannot quite find any good information on Google for it, so I am left with a error message I do not understand.

Conversion Issues - myProject.csproj:
Unable to open the Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj'. The Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj' does not exist.

The web service is not intended to run on the dev machine, it is copied to a test or a prod server. However, I do not know how this was done previously. I'm thinking that in order to convert, it has to access the server on which it should run (which is set somehow in a config maybe). But that doesn't actually make any sence..

If anyone could shed light on this, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

SQL express 2008 r2 on windows server 2003

Sharepoint 2003 + Windows Terminal Server 2008 + Office 2007 problem?

Hi, We have a customer where some users runs Windows Terminal Server 2008 with Office 2007. They open documents from a Sharepoint 2003 site. When they open an excel sheet they get a button in the document which says "Server workbook: Click edit workbook to edit this workbook" and there is a button: "edit workbook" The users clicks "edit workbook" but get an error message saying there is no connection to the server.  They are able to edit the document, but not save it back to the sharepoint site. Most other users work on their local computer with Office 2003. Here, everything works fine and there are no button/message stating its a server workbook.   Is this caused due to some compatability issues between Sharepoint 2003 and Office 2007?   Best regards, Thomas Hansen ErgoGroup AS

SQL Server 2008, what is the difference between (for/after) definition for trigger?

Hello. The difference is not clear for me. can someone explain it more carefully pls? as said: FOR | AFTER AFTER specifies that the DML trigger is fired only when all operations specified in the triggering SQL statement have executed successfully. All referential cascade actions and constraint checks also must succeed before this trigger fires. AFTER is the default when FOR is the only keyword specified. So what is the difference between for insert and after insert?

Win server 2003+ Sharepoint 2007+SQL Server 2008 ,reports view issue?


I hope someone may shed some light on a serious obstacle encountered on a client site:

We have implemented a SharePoint integrated report services solution for the client on a single server

Server = Windows 2003

SQL = 2008

MOSS 2007

Web application = servername:8888 (default) - windows auth

Web application extension 1 servername:8889 (extranet) forms auth

Web application extension 2 servername:8887 (intranet) forms auth

Reports are visible and can be run (renders) on internal sites

However, there is an external site which allows users to access the reports - the issue is, the reports then dont run and I get this:

"An unexpected error occurred while connecting to the report server. Verify that the report server is available and configured for SharePoint integrated mode."

Though I have not actually seen the firewall config of the AAM, the client assures me it has been setup properly.

If the AAM is setup correctly, what could be the problem? The server is clearly available and confgured in SharePoint integrated mode.


has anyone experienced the scenario where clients want to publish their reports on an external site? What can one do to see any errors other than the one line message (tried enabling custom errors, but no good)

Windows 7 socket bind behavior difference from XP/Server 2003, with reuse address socket option (WSA


I have two processes that are both listening to UDP packets and can run on the same PC.  One process binds a socket to one NIC address with port 18246.  The other process has two Socket objects, one for sending on port 18246 and one for listening on port 18246.  Both of these sockets are created, have the SO_REUSEADDR socket option set.  Bind is called for a single IP Endpoint for a common local NIC address, but a different one than used by the above app.

Under Windows XP and server 2003, both processes can bind regardless of order of startup.

Under Windows 7, if the process with only one socket starts first, the second process fails with WSAEACCES 10013 error with the second socket bind.

I wrote a sample C# app with the following method that fails when running under Windows 7 x86 and x64.  The above failure occurs when the sockets are in separate processes, but a single process using the same socket interaction also fails.  The below method is called with two IPV4 addresses that are assigned to local Network adapters on the PC.

SSAS 2008 R2 Cube being queried by Excel 2010 Pivot Table - 60x slower than with Excel 2003!


SQLServer 2008 R2

Excel 2010 x64

Hi All,

I have a fairly complex Excel report where a raw data sheet is updated from 10 or so PivotTables pulling from an Analysis Services Cube, (2008 R2), with a VBA script that refreshes all pivottables, and then does some post-processing, formatting etc.

This was originally developed in Excel 2003, and the updating of all the pivot tables ran in under 10 seconds

I've now recreated in Excel 2010 and *each table* is taking up to a minute to refresh!

I've also observed that I can get the refresh time of a single table back down to 1sec, if I delete all other pivottables from the worksheet/book.

Its deeply frustrating, as I'm touting 2010 as being the way for our business to go...it won't help the cause if I deliver something with a x60 increase in runtime!

I've run traces of both the 2003 and 2010 versions executing against the SQL Server, the only thing I can see is that the 2003 version passes 1 single MDX query, whilst the 2010 version appears to be firing it in sections.

I've posted this in the Excel forum too.

Please can anyone help?

Many thanks,





SQL Server 2008 Installation on SBS 2003 - Rule "Operating system supported for edition" failed

Unable to connect Excel 2003 from linked server in sql 2008 64 bit

I dont want to migrate to Excel 2007.

Thanks in advance for all your help.


SQL 2008 scema ONLY to SQL 2003


Is there a way to take a SQL2008 database to SQL2003?  I'm only interested in the basic schema of the database that is supported in SQL2003.  I'm not interested in the data.  I want a blank database at the end. 


I tried the generate scripts but the resulting script has a plethoria of errors when I parsed it on SQL2003.  I'm just looking for the basic database structure only.  Tables, Views, basic interdependenices.

Move SharePoint 2007 on Windows 2003 32-bit to Windows 2008 64-bit


I am planning to move SharePoint 2007 from a Windows 2003 32-bit system to a new Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server tomorrow afternoon.  I have done much research and found only one article that gives me enough information to go on for the migration.  Others in technet have cited this article; so, I expect it is the one go use.  However, before I begin, I wanted to see if anyone has anything else to add. 

Here's the article I'm planning to use:


Our current environment consist of one front end server (Windows 2003 32-bit running MOSS 2007) and one SQL server (Windows 2008 Standard 64-bit with SQL 2008 640bit).  So, we don't need to move the SQL databases - just the SharePoint front end.  We are moving to Windows 2008 R2 with MOSS 2007 (same SP and patch levels are planned).  

Our final goal is to move to SharePoint 2010 in the next week or two, but this seems to be the required first step.

Most of what I've read online contradicts other things.  I've found no consistency between articles.  

Thank you in advance for your assistance. 

SQL Server 2008 Express Edition: What is the difference between R2 and SP2?



  I received last week a notice about the expiration period of SQL Server 2008 R2.  I honestly got surprised considering that I installed the Express Edition.

  This week, I noticed an article announcing the coming out of SQL Server 2008 SP2.  This really caught my attention. 

A few questions:

1- Is R2 a release candidate version of SQL Server 2008 Express?

2- If so, how can I uninstall it from the moment SP2 is available for download.  Must I use the original setup program I used for install?

3- Actually I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition with Advanced Services.  What is the equivalent for the SP2 version.  Where can I find it for download?

Thanks for helping,
