WCF Service stops after throwing a unhandled exception :no user is logged on.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
Hi All,       I have written a WCF service which is hosted as a Managed windows service. I consume this service in a web application. The service is built using a httpBasicBinding and security Mode ="none". I'm now getting the following exception, after which the service stops  "An unhandled exception ('System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception') occurred in CMMonitorService.exe [1812]. Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error: Debugger could not be started because no user is logged on." I had tried changing the security mode to Transport/Message. with windows credential then I get a access to the path denied error. Can anyone provide hint on what am I missing and what would be the appropriate security mode and client credential to use along with basichttpBinding?

Windows Service Suddenly Stops with no logged message

Background: I have a windows service which hosts some wcf services and multithreading has been used there heavily. I'm using Enterprise Library to log messages, handled and unhandled.  AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException += OnUnhandledException;  private static void OnUnhandledException(object sender, UnhandledExceptionEventArgs e)         {             Logger.Error("An unhandled exception has been thrown.", (Exception)e.ExceptionObject);         } Problem: The problem is that randomly my windows service stops on production and I get no log messages saying that the services stopped or what exception details. Question: I haven't created any new AppDomain explicitly. Shouldn't all the threads run in the same default CurrentDomain? if so, why nothing gets logged when the service stops suddenly? Thanks in advance.

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.

How to make "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user" in vb code behind


I need to insert a declaration in the codebehind function below that will make the variable "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user". In what way do I need to change the code below (elsewhere in the project, I successfully make reference to basically the same code and make the UserId equal to logged-in user by using this handler expression inside an image control: ImageUrl ='<%# Eval("UserId","Image.aspx?UserId={0}")%>'...But in the case below, the function is not fired by this expression, but rather by CustomValidator). Thanks very much.


Sub ValidateImage(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs)

        If Request.QueryString("UserId") IsNot Nothing Then
            ' Get the connection string from Web.config.

Windows Identity Foundation Security Token Service can't stay logged in

I'm using the Windows Identity Foundation **(WIF)** Security Token Service **(STS)** to handle authentication for my application which is working all well and good. However I can't seem to get any long running login with the STS. From my understanding I shouldn't care about the client tokens at the application level since they can expire all they want to and it should redirect me to the STS and as long as they're still logged in on the STS it should refresh their application token. Yet it doesn't seem to want to keep them signed in. Here's what occurs in my login.aspx on the STS var cookie = FormsAuthentication.GetAuthCookie(userName, persistTicket); if (persistTicket) cookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(14); Response.Cookies.Add(cookie); var returnUrl = Request.QueryString["ReturnUrl"]; Response.Redirect(returnUrl ?? "default.aspx"); Which was taken almost directly from existing application using normal Forms Auth. From my web.config <authentication mode="Forms"> <forms loginUrl="Login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="2880" name=".STS" path="/" requireSSL="false" slidingExpiration="true" defaultUrl="default.aspx" cookieless="UseDeviceProfile" enableCrossAppRedirects="false" /> </auth

Cash Drawer - Method Open threw an exception - Windows Service

Hi All, I'm getting the following exception while calling Open method of Cash Drawer object. Method Open threw an exception.  Could not read the device name key's default value, or could not convert the Programmatic ID it holds into a valid Class ID. Code:   class Class1 { CashDrawer _uniCashDrawer1 = null; DeviceInfo cashDrawerDevice1 = null; PosExplorer posExplorer = new Microsoft.PointOfService.PosExplorer();   public void ClaimCashDrawer() { cashDrawerDevice1 = posExplorer.GetDevice("CashDrawer", "testDrawer"); if (cashDrawerDevice1 != null) { _uniCashDrawer1 = posExplorer.CreateInstance(cashDrawerDevice1) as CashDrawer; if (_uniCashDrawer1 != null) { _uniCashDrawer1.StatusUpdateEvent += new StatusUpdateEventHandler(UniCashDrawer1_StatusUpdateEvent); _uniCashDrawer1.Open(); _uniCashDrawer1.Claim(0); _uniCashDrawer1.DeviceEnabled = true; } } } }   Tha above code works fine if you put the code in WindowsApplication in all POS systems. The same is working if you put the code in Windows Service in all other POS systems. The same is not working if you put the code in Windows Service in Aures Galeo POS systems.  Thanks in advance.
