I have not used the Personal Site Kit with VS2005, only VWD Express 2005. In VWD, after installing the pers.vsi, the next step is to click the New Web Site option on the File menu. You should look at options for types of new projects to create from the File menu. I would guess you will find a Template called Personal Web Site Starter Kit.

thanks for your response,

yes, i did that but i get the following error:

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

now what i dont understand is on how to get it to connect to the Sql server which is a SQL2000 server on the same system as the application and why does it have to connect to two databases? i created the database (personal) on the Sqlserver.


  <add name="Personal" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|Personal.mdf" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  <remove name="LocalSqlServer"/>
  <add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|aspnetdb.mdf" />

In Visual Studio choose New Web Site and then choose the Personal Web Site Starter Kit. If you want to use Sql 2000 you will need to use the script files found in the AppData directory to create the database. To start out I would just use the Sql 2005 Express Edition cause it will work right away without having to change anything. If you do need SQL 2000 this forum post was really helpful to me . Good luck

If you have already created your Personal database in SQL 2000. You will also need to add the membership services tables for the Role based security. This combines the two databases that you are talking about. You can do this by browsing to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regsql.exe

Run that exe and then:

  • Click Next
  • Make sure radio button is selected that says "Configure SQL Server for application Services" and then click Next
  • Make sure you SQL 2000 server name is in the Server textbox
  • Choose your authentication
  • Select the Personal database from the drop down list and click Next.
  • Click Next again and then Finish.

Now Change both the connection strings you listed in your post. so that the connectionString value references your SQL Server 2000 server instance and personal database.

They are going to look similar to the following.

<add name="Personal" connectionString="Server=(Local);Integrated Security=True;database=Personal" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

<add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Server=(Local);Integrated Security=True;database=Personal" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

Getting Personal Website Starter Kit to work at Hostiong site with SQL Server 2005
Hi, I got the Personal Website Starter Kit working on my home computer which has SQL Server 2005 Express on it.  I would now like to put my website on the web.  However the hosting company I've picked uses SQL Server 2005 (NOT Express).  I do not have this at home.  Presumably there is a way to migrate the database?  Also, I think that I may not be allowed two databases, which is how the Starter Kit is setup.  Is it possible to migrate everything into one?  I'd appreciate it if someone could point me to an MSDN article or something that explain...

Is there a personal site starter kit for VS.NET?
I downloaded the personal site starter kit from microsoft ASP.NET site, but it's .vsi file. I don't know how to open it. Is there such a starter kit as the community kit that can be installed and viewed in VS.NET? Thanks,   Hi LLZ00 Don't try to save the vsi file but when you are prompted just click open. It will then prompt you to accept the Agreement. Just click on "I accept" from the bottom of the agreement. It will start the installation right away. But you will still need atleast VS 2005 Express edition. So download that before you download the starter kits. Once that is...

Getting personal website starter kit to work
I downloaded the personal website starter kit, then FTP'd it up to my website - . However, when I view the site I get an html 404 "Resource can by found" error. My host is 1&1 . The only advice I've gotten from their tech support so far is to "make the folder an application folder." I'm assuming they were talking about the root folder, so I made that an application folder and still get the 404 error. Does anyone have any idea of how to get it running, or have experience setting up aspx files with 1&1? - Investment newsletter, subscribe...

Personal Site Starter Kit ported to Phalanger
Hi,the Personal Site is now available in one more language - PHP. It's still ASP.NET but uses PHP instead of C# or VB.NET as the code-behind language. The compiler that makes it possible to write ASP.NET web sites in PHP by compiling PHP to verifiable .NET assemblies is called Phalanger, and was recently released under a shared source license.More information and download:
