Visual Studion Express 2008 SP1, Visual Web Developer Express 2008 and Web Application Project Template
I installed Visual Web Developer Express 2008 sp1 on my two machines, one running Vista & other running XP. On the XP machine, when I open VWD Express 2008 I get an option to use Web Application project template as a new project option but on my Vista machine I only get an option to use Web site model template option. My question is, is the sp1 incompatible with vista? Any help or explanation would be appreciated
SP1 is compatible with vista. I would try devenv.exe /installvstemplates to see if you could force vwd to see the other project types otherwise ...Visual Web Dev Express 2008 and SQL server Express 2005 database connection problem
Apologies if this has already been covered, i can't find any search function on the forum.
I have a somewhat annoying problem with the above software.
I use Vista Home Premium x64 and have decided to install VWD 2008 and SQL2005 to learn ASP and SQL development. I only have a moderate undertanding of standard HTML and would like to expand my knowledge.
It is the final non-beta version of VWD 2008.
The install went fine and no errors were shown.
After trying to connect to the database via the ASP.NET application tool in VWD it gives an "unable to connect to the database ...Turn off Debug
Every time I run a page Debug keeps running after the page has rendered. Is there a way to turn that off so I don't have to stop it after each page? Thanks
You can start your application using Ctrl-F5 instead of F5 (or the green arrow button) to avoid debugging.Christopher Reed"The oxen are slow, but the earth is patient."...Visual web developer 2005 express to visual web developer 2008 express
I created a project(web site) in vwd 2005 on Win XP. Upon trying vwd 2008 on Vista home premium, and opening the project and selecting to convert to 3.5 .Net, the formatting is not correct. All images are sent way over to the right. Everything else works fine.Anybody else have this problem, or similar?TIA Този уебсайт е твърде бавен. Мисля, че IIS 7 не е конфигуриран правилно. Моля, премахнете банери по-горе.
Rendering difference is not a result of conversion. 2008 designer is completely different from 2005, there is no common code. 2005 designer was based in IE6 while 2008 is b...I cannot use SQL Server 2008 Express with Visual Web Developer 2008 Express
I have downloaded the Visual Studio 2008 Express with SP1 All-In-One DVD image file, burned a DVD and installed Visuall Basic, with SQL Server and Visual Web Developer. However when I try to test a new site and add a New Item/SQL Sever database I get a message: "failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed."
I tried to use SQL Server Configuration manager and change SQLEXPRESS logon properties (different built-in account and my Windows Vista account) but it doesn't work and I ...ODP.NET with Visual Web Dev Express?
Does the odp.net for oracle work with Visual Web Dev Express or do you need VS 2005 full version?
I get the following error in VWD when i add the reference to the Oracle.Data Assembly files.
Could not load file or assembly 'Oracle.DataAccess'..............
Failed to grant minimum permission requests.
Also when installing the ODP i got the following:

Hi everybody, I have an asp.net project (created with visual web developer 2008) with a reference to a .net assembly compiled with VS 2005.
Can I debug the external assemby? When I try to jump inside code, I got the message "There is no source code available for the current location."
Thanks for your help.
You need to have PDB (program database, aka symbol files) for the referenced assembly. You also may want to uncheck 'Enable Just My Code' in Tools | Options | Debugging.Thanks------------------------------------------------------------...Multiple selection in Visual Web Dev. 2008 Express
I couldn't select more controls in the design view. After reading some posts I understand this functionality doesn't exist in vwd 2008 express and a sp1 has been created for that.Did I get it right?If I did, is it possible to download only the sp1 and not all the vs2008 again?Thanks
You need to install SP1. In VWD Express SP1 is effectively new VWD download. Most of the binaries in the product have changed so there is really no smaller download.Thanks------------------------------------------------------------This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confe...Ajax Toolkit with Visual Web Dev 2008 Express not working
Hi,I followed the instructions to install the Ajax tool kit as described here:http://www.asp.net/AJAX/AjaxControlToolkit/Samples/Walkthrough/Setup.aspxI can see all the controls in the Toolkit tab on the left - so it *looks* like a successful install. I can run the Accordian sample from the Samples Web site with no problem. But when I try and create and use an accordian on my own web site I get this error: "Could not load file or assembly 'AjaxControlToolkit' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified." Is is because I...Problem with debugging an ASPX page in web developer express 2008
I have a problem when trying to run a page through the web developer. Basically, an aspx page in a live server is used to do an upload to a database of an xml file. It advises it has been successful, but it doesnt appear on teh database. So what I was wanting to do, was run this program in my dev environment and use the debug facilities.
However, when I load the page up in web developer (all necessary files are also there as I have a carbon copy of the whole site in my dev environment etc etc) I get an error in the build of the website. Error is as follows:
Error 1 ...When I try to do debugging with Microsoft Web Dev 2008 I get this error...
This application is currently offline. To enable the application, remove the app_offline.htm file from the application root directory.
How do I fix this?
you fix it by doing exactly what the error says, remove the file called app_offline.htm. This was a new feature introduced with 2.0 so that a sys admin could very easily make a site go down so a newer version could be placed instead.

Can these products be bundled when working in a n-tier project? What are the best practise methods? Or is moving to Visual Studio 2008 Standard Editon the solution?
In most cases you will find all you need is in VWD 2008, If you install SP1 then you can compile class libraries now as well, so less need for c#2008.

I can't seem to get execution to stop at any breakpoints. I've verified debug is enabled in web.config and project properties.
When I was previously working on this project on another machine, (a long time ago)breakpoints worked. Now, I'm working on the project on a different machine (running Windows Vista) and I can't get breakpoints to work. I've tried setting breakpoints in different methods (C#) in different aspx pages, and nothing is stopping. I'm using inline pages, not codebehind.
I'm completely stumped. The project I'm working with is based on th...MVC Preview 3 and Web Dev Express 2008 SP1 Beta
When trying to run a new mvc web application, the default project fails to start up. A BadImageFormatException is throw with the message BAD IL Range.
Anyone seen this before or know how to fix it?
Do you get this error if you build the project first? Is the project language VB? We have seen this error before and are currently looking at the cause of it. It is related to the fact that a view page must be built for it to correctly inherit from MVC.ViewPage.
The language is VB. And Building the project before attempting to run it did fix the problem. Thanks (can...Error: 25
