WebDev.WebServer.exe has encounted a problem and needs to close when trying to view page in browser

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi, whenever I load an aspx page in vwde2008, I get the message in the subject of this post.  After I click Ok on that, I get a dialog box, Unable to Connect to the ASP.Net development center.  What can I do to troubleshoot?

I am using Windows XP SP3, vwde2008 with SP1, on a HP desktop.  Also using Office 2003 if that is relevant at all.

Thanks, Justin

Page cannot be displayed when I am trying to View in browser with visual studio team system 2008


I have been working on this project for weeks.  Every thing was fine.  But all of sudden today, I got this error: Page cannot be displayed when I was trying to debug as usual. 

I searched online for solution.  Only one solution was found at http://hubpages.com/hub/ASPNET-DEVELOPMENT-SERVER--WEB-PAGE-CANNOT-BE-DISPLAYED.  But when I followed its steps, I found in my hosts file, it is already like this:       localhost

I cannot continue to work without testing finished form pages.

Could somebody please help? 



Stupid ActiveX problem on a Webserver


 I have developed an asp.net website that uses an old activex.exe control.

The website works fine when someone is logged in on the server, but gives the following error when no one is logged in on the server :

Unable to cast COM object of type 'Proxyticketserver.TicketingClass' to interface type 'Proxyticketserver._Ticketing'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{848607B6-A467-4F40-9450-E543EDDE7080}' failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)).

Anyone any idea?

ASP.NET Grid View Paging and GridDataRowBound Problem -



I have a problem displaying data in a Grid View control when I set a row to visible = false when a certain condition is true.

For example, if a DataRowData value has a condition set to true (custom in table) I set the visible property to false, so the data row will not be visible at run time.

The problem is that I'm using paging (10 rows per page) and if 8 of those rows fall into the true condition that won't show the row, that grid view page will only show two rows of data in page 1. The worst scenario is that if I go to page 2 of the grid view and all the rows (10) fall into the true condition, that grid view page will not show any data at all.

How can I show 10 rows of data at all times in a gridview? In other words, I would like to just show the visible rows at all times.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.


Razor View Engine and Add Namespace in Web.Config Problem



I am working on a MVC project with Razor view engine and I have the following:


This only works if I have on the same view the following:

  @using SquishIt.Framework;

However, on my Web.Config I have the following:


      <!-- Namespaces -->
        <add namespace="System"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Routing"/>
        <add namespace="Microsoft.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="SquishIt.Framework"/>


So if "SquishIt.Framework" namespace is added on Web.Config why do I need to have the @using on the view?

Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view


Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?

Sharepoint 2007 View Problem

I have a document library in Sharepoint 2007 in which I have seet up a number of different views so that the users who work with the information in that library can filter down to the specific area that they work with.  The view itself works great, and they are able to see their data quite easily.  The problem comes when they actually go in and edit any of the items.  Unlike most software in the civilized world for the past 30 years, the user is not returned to the view that they were working with, but to the defult view.  This means that any task where they are required to do many edits at a time becomes a frustrating nightmare and waste of time.  Is there any setting I can change, or anything else at all that I can do to give my users a little relief by making the site navigation such that they are returned after an edit to the same view that they were in before the edit?  Ideally, it would be nice if the same scroll position within the view were returned as well, but I suspect that I may be asking for too much by pushing that issue.  HELP! HELP!  Any and all constructive assistance is appreciated.

problem in css for Mozilla browser



I am displaying data in crystal report and I want to data to be displayed in vertical format. I am getting the proper alignment in all the bowsers ie. IE,chrome and safari. But having the problem with Mozilla.

The problem is with text alignment with any symbol eg. (% of hours), I want to display it in a single vertical line. But when a symbol is encountered (here it is %), it is displaying that in the next line.

Can anyone help me on this ? Its urgent.

Please find my CSS below.

    font-family:Arial,Verdana, Geneva, Helvetica, sans-serif;

Add page numbers for paging in data view web part


Hello all,

Has anyone found a solution that will allow me to have page numbers for paging in a data view web part. For instance, if I have 40 items/rows and I set the paging to display 10 items, I'd like the paging to show 1 2 3 4 rather than showing 1-10 and having to click next over and over to get to a specific item.

I found this article, but it is for 2003 and doesn't seem to apply to 2007 or if it does I am not able to really figure out how.


Please help!

Thanks in advance.


Problem with master page and update panel (I think)



the app I am working with is made up of three nested master pages that have the following design:

The first master page ha only realize the HEADER, BODY and FOOTER divs.

The second one specialize the Body content placeholder and divide it in three more layers: NAVIGATOR, PAGE TITLE, BODY CONTENT.

The final layer specialize the BODY CONTENT in PAGE CONTENT and ACTIONS.

In one of my content pages I have (inside the PAGE CONTENT area) 

  • 1 Update Panel that contains a gridview object
  • 1 Update Panel that contains some HTML code to show in a PopupModalExtender

The PopupModalExtender can be either triggered from inside the gridView and also from a series of LinkButtons that are in the ACTIONS area.

The problem is that when the PopupModalExtender shows the FOOTER and the ACTIONS areas are not dimmed from the style I apply as background to the modal popup. An example of what I am trying to explain can be viewed in the following screenshot.

Why this is going to happen? Has anybody any suggestion on how to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot

CSS Problem on ASPX page


I am having a problem with space around a div. The page looks perfect in the VS internal browser, but there is space at the top between the body and the div for the page layout in IE and FireFox. I tried everything I know by setting margins to 0 and padding to 0 for the body, div, form, almost everything and there is still space. The wierd thing is that the space shows the background color when I set the padding for the div#page to 0, and the space is the div#page background color when the padding is set to a value.

I must be missing something. I looked at the page's HTML after it is rendered from the server and it inserts a dive with a hidden control for the viewstate. I thought this might be causing the problem so I set the margin and padding for all divs to 0, but it did nothing.

The code for the simple page and CSS is provided below.

It appears the problem disappears and the page looks as I intended when I use the Compatibility View in IE8.

Thanks for the help in advance,
-- Chris

Customer Activity Designer Problem - "Could not generate view for VisualBasicValue`1"

I'm reading Bruce Bukovics Pro WF4 book and in chapter 16 - Advanced Customer Activites, he details emulating a Sequence activity along with a custom designer. When I drop the custom activity into a new xaml activity, I'm getting all sorts of wierdness. The custom sequence activity has a condition property that determines whether to schedule each child activity contained within. Once I set a value in the ExpressionTextBox for the activity, Visual Studio starts showing in red "Could not generate view for VisualBasicValue`1" along with this error showing up in my error window: The activity 'VisualBasicValue<Boolean>' cannot be referenced by activity 'MySequence' because the latter is not in another activity's implementation.  An activity can only be referenced by the implementation of an activity which specifies that activity as a child or import.  Activity 'VisualBasicValue<Boolean>' is declared by activity 'MySequence'. Here is the source for the activity itself: using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Activities; using System.ComponentModel; using System.Collections.ObjectModel; namespace ActivityLibrary { [Designer(typeof(ActivityLibrary.Design.MySequenceDesigner))] public sealed class MySequence : NativeActivity { [Browsable(false)] public Collection<Activity&
