I am trying to debug a WCF Service from Silverlight (the service is in its own library within the SAME SOLUTION)

Simply ‘No joy’, tried attaching to process etc, was getting ‘wcf no symbols have been loaded for this document’ in the IDE also!!

Tried this, it did not work ūüė¶ – http://blogs.msdn.com/greggm/archive/2008/03/17/debugging-wcf-services-in-visual-studio-2008.aspx

This is useful to know anyway – http://bbits.co.uk/blog/archive/0001/01/01/missing-wfc-service-configuration-editor.aspx

Double checked all this –

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb157688.aspx (How to: Step into WCF Services)

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb157687.aspx¬†(Limitations on WCF Debugging) –

So, you cant step into it¬†from calling code if its an asynchronous call, which is ALL CALLS in silverlight ūüôā but it should be ok anyway for normal debug?! so what gives?

In the end I created a simple console/windows app as discussed for IIS (I am using internal server though in this example) –

the debugger then worked fine for my async call? does anyone know what I was missing in the SL version?

Also, dont forget to put a nice wait for keypress in your app if your using Async ! ūüôā

Console.WriteLine(“Press any key to continue…”);
Console.ReadKey(true);

Out & Merry Xmas!

Hi All,

We use an old version of sharepoint in work (but I think this applies to SP2007 also).

Basically I think this maybe occurs when you install different apps from Office 2003/2007 in certain sequences (this may include 2007 viewers/trial versions?) which messes offices tiny little massive brain up.  I think Visio 2003 was the tipping point for me.

Either way, trying to open a word doc (or other?) from a sharepoint site makes IE (7 in my case) go BOOOOOM!

These threads help fix it for me –

This wasn’t related to my bug but may help someone¬†– http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938888

I basically, renamed OWSSUPP.DLL to OWSSUPP.DLL-old whereever it resided in –

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11 (just here for me)

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12

Then ran Microsoft Office Diagnostics for good effect, retried IE7, done

! Too early to see any side effects of this, your mileage may vary, good luck …¬†.. .

Set Up Remote Management

Somebody lent me a Mac Mini in work, thought I’d try it.¬† Wanted to remote control it (save mouse, monitor etc)

Set Up Remote Management

Turned on above, ticked all the options for allow access for on previous screen (your mileage may vary on this),  installed RealVNC, typed in the MAC IP, then boom, crashed! VNC gone!

It turns out you must allow best colour quality ELSE YOUR KNACKERED, thanks to many other forums, blogs for this.

Like So!

Good night!

PrtSc + Cntl-V is OK.

But I found out today about ‘Snipping Tool’ built in to Vista, pretty much covers what you need to do.

  • Start->Snipping Tool (or create a shortcut on your quick launch)
  • Draw Square
  • Paste into Wherever
  • Done

Trying to install Basic Windows Authentication  AJAX application on local IIS 7 set up. 

This was previously only running on in built web server (is this called cassini?).

– Needed to TURN ON Windows Authentication IN the IIS Manager although this was also in the web.config.

¬†Got this error –

 Ajax Sys.Manager Error

 So naturally thought this was related to IIS 7 / modules / AJAX set up somehow.

 Found this Рhttp://gramotei.wordpress.com/2007/08/17/aspnet-ajax-update-panels-and-responseredirect/ Рbut think this now out of date as redirect does work!

¬†Yet, it does just happen on redirect, so made me think IIS7 modules not set up, so, added –

  <modules>

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† <add name=”ScriptModule” type=”System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″/>

 </modules>

to my <system.webServer> (which I found had to be in there for IIS 7 to work whilst trawling the web, I had already added a handlers section, but this was not enough)

Example full section ended up like this –

<system.webServer>

<handlers>

<add name=”ScriptResource.axd_GET,HEAD” path=”ScriptResource.axd” verb=”GET,HEAD” type=”System.Web.Handlers.ScriptResourceHandler, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″ preCondition=”integratedMode,runtimeVersionv2.0″ />

<add name=”*_AppService.axd_*” path=”*_AppService.axd” verb=”*” type=”System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptHandlerFactory, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″ preCondition=”integratedMode,runtimeVersionv2.0″ />

<add name=”*.asmx_*” path=”*.asmx” verb=”*” type=”System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptHandlerFactory, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″ preCondition=”integratedMode,runtimeVersionv2.0″ />

</handlers>

<modules>

<add name=”ScriptModule” type=”System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″/>

</modules>

<defaultDocument>

<files>

<add value=”index.aspx” />

<add value=”index.asp” />

</files>

</defaultDocument>

</system.webServer>

Hi,

I have various dev virtual machines, and finally thought I’d stick sql 2005 on my main machine.

I came across this error when trying to put full text indexing on a table –

Execution of a full-text operation failed.¬† ‘The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion’

 

 

 

I followed the various links below, agonised, messed about, ate a pie, then realised that I had not put SP2 on!!!!!! (as I installed SQL a few weeks ago and clearly forgot this vital last step)

Hi All,

Tried access the main betfair site via iphone safari! proceeded to crash and reset the phone when entering the soccer section.¬† I then proceeded to find –

https://iphone.betfair.com (remember the https)

Think its still in early stages, but it does a great¬†job of a cheeky ‘¬£10 on the nose’ when out and about!

– Could do with ‘my favourite markets’ section, like main site
– Could do with remember my login settings (yes, we know its a potential security risk, but its upto me NOT to lose my phone surely?)
– I also want to view the markets before logging in
