Trouble with SQL datasource control, "Cannot get web application service"


I am working with the time tracker starter kit and learning allot.  When I drag a SQL datasource control on to a web form and select the "Configure Data Source" smart tag.  I get an error.  The error reads "...while getting connection string information from configuration "Cannot get web application service."".  I tried pasting a connection string into the HTML but I still get the message.  When I drag a table on and the SQL Data source is created autoimatically it works, but when you try to look at the copnfig wizard the error occurs.  Could this be a permissions issue?

Also, why are there three connection strings and two web.config files?

Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like your suffering from the same bug that everyone else has in the this thread.

 The solution is to shut down VSD and then repoen your project.


Hope that helps

A "Web Application Project" for web-services ?
I was wondering if there is something analogous to the "Web Application Project" VS add-in for Web-services. By analogous I mean: 1. All the source files in a Web-services project is compiled into a single assembly, perhaps with the exceptions of the .asmx file 2. Property pages for the project in VS display all the tabs that are available in other kinds of projects - i.e., for example, ability to specify pre and post build events, the XML documentation file etc. I really appreciate any help.

Get "Mail"/"Get "News" / "Write"/"Post" buttons?
If the "Get Mail" button text changed to "Get News", and "Write" changed to "Post" when TB's in the news-reading mode, it would save me and probably others from constantly forgetting to make the change before proceeding. :-) Or is there an extension to do this which I don't know about?

"Dynamic" Web Services, "Dynamic" Parameters
This is a follow-up discussion from I noticed we stopped talking about Peter's problem some time ago. The discussion had become one of passing "XML strings" to a web service in order to permit optional parameters, a dynamic web service, and things like that. My contention is that this is a solution without a requirement. It is something that we can do, which does not imply that anyone needs us to do it. First of all, if you need to send XML, then send XML. Do not send a string that happens to have XML embedded in it. ASM...

Trying to transfer a Web Service made in .NET aspx on my "localhost", to online and getting BC30002: Type 'localhost.Convert' is not defined. error
I think I get the general idea of this error.  The webservice works on my computer as Visual Web Developer somehow makes a temporary server out of my computer.  But when I try to FTP my full ASP page I get an error that localhost is not defined.  This makes sense as I am sure the web server for GoDaddy is not called localhost for me.  Now in my App_WebReferences folder in my program I have a local host folder that holds 3 automatically generated files which are somehow "calls" to a webservice that I built.  So I have the original files for the webservi...

"Net use" not working in application that runs as "system"
Hello, I am trying to create an application object to distribute a program which during the setup procedure creates two local users on the workstation. I tried to set up the application to run as an unsecure system user and start the setup.exe. This method worked fine for quite a number of apps in the past. However this app needs a drive mapping to a windows 2003 server to start the setup.exe. Apparently under windows 2003 it is no longer possible to use the "net use" command when running a script as system user. I get system error 1312 "A specified logon ses...
