Visual Studio.NET 2005 Service Pack 1

http://msdn.microsoft.com:80/vstudio...1/default.aspx

1) This is big - nearly 500Mb

2) If you have WAP installed, you must uninstall it first - WDP doesn't need
to be uninstalled

3) It will almost certainly take over an hour to install!!!

Having had to download the 1.16 GB big Windows SDK for .NET 3.0 at least
once every month since March, I don't feel that 430 MB or so are that
big ;-) It took me 3 minutes to download the SP1.

I downloaded VS 2005 SP1 + all the Express products SP's

Didn't do it yet. Your word of caution (as well as others I read) made
me decide to wait until I find a good time.

I figure we're headed for there anyway, so I installed it right away.
No problem so far.

Hmm - interesting...

1) Uninstalled "old" WAP.

2) Started installation of SP1

3) Went to the pub to watch the match

4) After installation of SP1, rebooted machine - it didn't ask me too, but
this isn't my first day... ;-)

5) Opened all my existing web application projects - all recompiled without
error in both Debug and Release mode

Smile - relief... etc

However, now I need to make a change to one of the existing web app
projects, so I open the aspx in question, and immediately get the following
error:

Error 3 C:\Documents and Settings\MarkRae\My Documents\Visual Studio
2005\Projects\xxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxx_app\Global.asax: ASP.NET runtime error:

[Obviously, I've replaced the actual name of the solution and project with
xxxxxxxx because it's a very well-known company and I've signed an NDA
etc...]

The entire first line of the aspx file has the blue squiggly line underneath
it...
<%@ Application Codebehind="Global.asax.cs" Inherits="xxxxxxxx_app.Global"
Language="C#" %>

What is even stranger is that this shows up as an error, not a warning or a
message, but the app still compiles and runs...???

Anybody else experiencing this? Any ideas on what to do about it?

There is a mention of it on Scott Guthrie's blog as relates to the "old"
WAP, but no mention on what causes it or how to get rid of it...

re:

ASP.NET 2.0 has gone away from the code behind model
to the inline script model for its Global.asax pages.

Here's an alternate way to switch back to the global.asax codebehind model:

<%@ Application Language="C#" Inherits="Global" %>

Look, ma, no ' Codebehind="Global.asax.cs" ' !

The only other step is to write your code to a class file called Global.cs.

public partial class Global : System.Web.HttpApplication
void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
// Code that runs on application startup
}

etc...

You must move global.asax.cs to the App_Code directory, too.

Of course, you may use :

<%@ Application Codebehind="Global.asax.cs" Inherits="YourNamespace.Global" %>

( notice : "YourNamespace.Global", not "YourApplicationName.Global" )

....but why would you ? ( since it entails additional work... )
( and why would you use the alternate method I suggest ? )

I have changed over to the inline, default, no codebehind, model.

re:
- where would you like it to be...? This is a web application, not a web site...
Why not?
No of course it isn't - why would you think it is...?
If you change to the inline model for global.asax ( which is now the default in
ASP.NET 2.0) you won't have any of the problems you seem to be having.

Using the CodeBehind and Inherits attributes and putting the .cs file in App_Code does work.

There is not much of a benefit in doing so, though.
There's nothing you can do in global.asax codebehind which you can't do inline.

Besides, why work against what the ASP.NET Dev Team
decided was a better way to implement global.asax ?

ASP.NET 2.0 has gone away from the code behind model
to the inline script model for its Global.asax pages.
1) Create a new web application project

2) Right-click the project in Solution Explorer

3) Click Add, New Item

4) Select Global Application Class

5) Click Add

re:

Not all applications need a global.asax file.
Why add a global.asax file by default to applications which don't need it ?

To those that do need it, as determined by the developer,
one can be added although, as noted, it won't have a codebehind file.

The key, Mark, is that ASP.NET 2.0's (and, therefore VS 2005's)
default global.asax file does *not* use codebehind because you
can do anything inline, in a global.asax file, which you can do in
a global.asax codebehind file, so why go to the extra trouble ?

To top it all, if you use a codebehind file, which you can still do,
as the procedure I outlined proves, you will be compiling the code twice.

Once to compile global.asax.cs's codebehind and another time to merge
global.asax.cs's compilation with the compilation which global.asax will require anyway.

That seems more than a bit wasteful.

Guys,
I don't understand what this little diatribe is all about. I have no trouble
creating Global.asax with matching codebehind in the WAP model. That's the
way I prefer it.
And yes, not every project "needs" to have a Global class.

When two people go back as far as we do, it's easy
to figure out the intent in almost anything we write.

To others who don't know that, it might not be as easy.

That's why I sought an explanation : for their benefit.

My instance of the installer has been running almost 24 hours. It doesn't
like any applications to be open notably IE so you might as well play guitar
for awhile and keep an eye on the progress in case you have to intervene.

I still can't download any of the Expression Suite applications [1] and
msdn2.microsoft.com is still FUBAR.

I figure we're headed for there anyway, so I installed it right away.
No problem so far.

It took me 3 minutes to download the SP1.

And how long to install it...?

Didn't do it yet. Your word of caution (as well as others I read) made me
decide to wait until I find a good time.

24 hours!!!!!????? I'm impressed that you managed to install VS.NET 2005 on
a 286... ;-)

That can't be normal, surely...!

Has it hung, perhaps?

Is the progress bar actually moving at all...?

How much processor time / memory is it using...?
Dec 18 '06 #25
I kid you not and its still gathering required information...noting over
that period of time the installer paused to tell me I had to close certain
applications and then retry after which the progress bar picks right back up
as expected. This installer likes nothing running. Not IE, not WinAmp and I
closed down all tasktray apps except McAfee which will probably cause a
conflict sooner or later itself.

Hmm - I never like advising people to kill a running process, especially a
software patch, but there's clearly something getting in its way...

Have you considered rebooting the machine, switching off everything bar the
bare essentials and then trying again...?

re:

I suspect that's the reason for the slow install.

If every time setup creates a new file McAfee has to scan it,
and since setup creates thousands of new files...

Have you tried stopping McAffee until setup finishes ?

My install has finally finished successfully. Disabling the current install
of McAfee is nearly impossible. The UI has turned into a POS and I am going
to write them about this as managing their software has become inaccessible
from the tasktray requiring several manual operations to disable and
re-enable services.

At breakfast this morning I was also thinking about the paging file which I
surmised the VSSP1 installer may be using. I haven't been able to get past
the Continue button to the download page for any of the Expression
applications so in my still unsuccessful attempts to troubleshoot I have
disabled paging on c:\ and relocated the paging file to a second disk set to
a fixed Custom Size. I just reset on to allow System managed size so I have
to go reboot now... :-)

I have installed it on three systems - one W2K SP4, and two XP SP2. On the
W2K and one of the XP boxes, it took about 4 hours. On the other XP box, it
took about 30 minutes. All have VS 2005 Standard. The only thing that was
really different was that the 30 minute install didn't have _ANY_ MS Office
applications started (not running, but simply started and closed). Once
again MS is doing too much integration of applications with the OS.
