Debugging clickonce deployed wpf apps

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hi,   I'm trying to debug an error which occurs on all client pc's but not on my dev pc. I have already added the following error handling to my app.xaml.cs: public partial class App : Application { void App_DispatcherUnhandledException(object sender, DispatcherUnhandledExceptionEventArgs e) { var stringBuilder = new StringBuilder(); stringBuilder.AppendFormat("{0}\n", e.Exception.Message); stringBuilder.AppendFormat( "Exception handled on main UI thread {0}.", e.Dispatcher.Thread.ManagedThreadId); // attempt to save data var result = MessageBox.Show( "Application must exit:\n\n" + stringBuilder.ToString() + "\n\nSave before exit?", "app", MessageBoxButton.YesNo, MessageBoxImage.Error); if (result == MessageBoxResult.Yes) { MessageBox.Show(e.Exception.InnerException.ToString()); MessageBox.Show(e.Exception.InnerException.Message.ToString()); } // Return exit code this.Shutdown(-1); // Prevent default unhandled exception processing e.Handled = true; } private void Application_Startup(object sender, StartupEventArgs e) { AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException += new UnhandledExceptionEventHandler(CurrentDomain_UnhandledException); } void CurrentDomain_UnhandledException(object sender, UnhandledExceptionEventArgs e) { Exception ex = e.ExceptionObject as Exception; MessageBox.S

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Practical Multithreading for Client Apps

Writing applications that use multiple threads is often considered an advanced programming task, prone to errors. In this month's column, I'll focus on a practical application of multithreading in Windows® Forms applications with some real benefits, while attempting to keep things simple. My goal is to present multithreading in an approachable way that addresses a very common need: writing applications with a user interface that remain responsive to the user.

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,


HttpHandler works with Visual Studio Development Server debugging, but not otherwise


Hi all,

I'm new to HttpHandlers.  I am writing an HttpHandler that reads uploaded files directly from the request stream to provide progress that can be queried using an AJAX request.  For large files, this seems to be faster than having ASP.NET load the file contents into Request.Files and then streaming the file from there to wherever it goes (Linq to SQL into a VARBINARY column in an SQL Server database.)

My HttpHandler works perfectly when I'm debugging using the Visual Studio Development Server, but doesn't work otherwise.  The application pool for this application in IIS 7 is set to run in Classic Mode, and the Handler Mappings screen in IIS says that I must manage managed handlers in system.web/httpHandlers. 

I set up in my applications Web.config file.

<add verb="GET,POST" path="*.upload" type="Namespace.For.UploadHandler, AssemblyForUploadHandler"/>

It works great, so long as I don't debug with the "Use Local IIS Web server" option.

What else do I need to do to get this to work?


Debugging ASHX after deployment



I'm finished with a part of my ASHX handler and need to test it against the software that'll be calling it using HTTP POST. The software required an https url so I created an internally hosted site in IIS and published the project there. 

Question now is how do I do any debugging on the script to see what data is coming out of it before the data goes back into the software that's calling it? Do I set something on the project itself to be able to step into the published DLL? 

iPhone and mobile apps


Hi Guys,


I would like to develop a mobile application such as the one you find in iPhones but I don't know from where to start!!? I'm not looking for something complicated, just an a static application of an eBook that users can read an flip the pages, I don't think that you can do such animation easily in ASP.net so does anyone knows what tool that I can use to develop such application?
