Visual Web Developer Express 2008 Freezes in Design View
When I connect to my web site it comes up find in Source View. However when I switch to Design view, the text comes up but images take forever to render and actually I have never waited longer than 5 minutes to see if they ever do. At this point Web Developer is basically locked up. It won't let me cancel or close. I have to click CTRL+ALT+DEL to close the program. I have downloaded and installed the Performance Hot Fix KB946581 and this did not help any. I have a fast internet connection and am using a well known web host. I can connect quickly ...Visual Web Developer 2008 Express freezes when I switch to design view.
When I try to switch to design view of any form, aspx, or html, the entire program freezes and I heave to end task.
It also freezes if I click Tools, Options, HTML Designer, CSS Styling.
Any help would be appreciated.Phil Hopper
I have the same problem. When it freezes, I notice that its using upwards of 200MB of memory in the task list. The only way I can get out of it is to end task on it. I'm using Visual Studio 2008 Professional.
Doesn't anyone at Microsoft test this stuff?Mark this post as the "Answer" if it was the answer.

In the Design view, when laying out item in "absolute" positioning mode... there's this nice layout tool bar that has various alighment widgets. However, for the life of me I can't figure out how to select multiple objects. Example, I want to left align 3 buttons. But I can't select them. I realize there are other ways to do this... but since the Alignment widgets exist and since absolute positioning exists... there must be a way to select multiple objects.
Thanks for any help
Keep on pressing CTRL or SHIFT key and then click on objects to be selected one by on...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 ...VWD 2008 express bug? cannot display aspx in design mode and split mode

be switched to Design or Split mode. After clicking Design, the page
just don't render. The display area will show whatever other windows'
remaining content if it's covered. Clicking Split doesn't do anything.

It's been a while since I actively designed in dot net. Now it's time to do some serious updating to our website (from dot net 1.1 to 3.5). I haven't used any of the new design tools but want to be able to take complete advantage of all the new features of v3.5 and the features of development applications.
What are the differences between Visual Studio 2008 / Visual Web Developer Express 2008 / SharePoint Designer / Etc. and are there any others I should consider for development? I just want to settle on a development platform so I can start moving forward...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 ...Web User Control design view doesn't render in designer once any source editing is done
Not sure if anyone has a work-around or fix for this one. In pretty much any web user control I design in VS2008, once I edit anything in the source view, the designer goes blank.A few observations that may or may not help:1. If I cut the code from the source view and paste it in the design view, it works ... until I edit the source directly agan2. When the designer goes blank, if any items are added to the designer, it appends the new code at the end of the exiting code in the source view. I'm running VS 2008, .net 3.5, Vista 64-bit. This is getting to be a pain, so...Unable to view .net web page
An error occurred during the processing of /profdev/training1/MainMenu.aspx. The attribute 'autoeventwireup' is not allowed in this page.
I am encountering the above error while attempting to view my .net web page. Does anyone have any ideas?
The most common scenario is that the directory it's running from is either configured with the wrong version of ASP.NET as it's application framework, or it's not configured as a virtual directory, which makes it kind of hit or miss as to wheteher it will serve pages based on the parent directorys sett...Visual Web Developer Express vs Microsoft Expression Web Designer
I would like to know what are the differences between VWD Express and Expression Web Designer ?I have played with both and they seem very similar, is there a comparison chart available or does anyone have any thoughts on this ?
There are huge differences. Expression is Designer-oriented too and has more advanced page layout and CSS tools, but does not include compilers, debugger and does not provide code intellisense. VWD and Visual Studio are developer-oriented tools, they provide advanced tools for those who are primarily writing code. Markup and script intellisense are approximatel...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.

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 ...unable to view inserted images in design mode

Can you post your code? Are your images in the same directory level?If everything happens for a reason what is the reason for this error?
Untitled PagFollowing is the code...and yes, the images are in the same directory level as the html page itself.
