  • Blog Post: Recent updates for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

    I wrote previously about fixes that are available for three issues that can occur when you install SP1 for .NET Framework 3.5.

  • Blog Post: Does DEP/NX affect web applications?

    A while a go when I posted about the .NET Framework 3.5 and 2.0 SP1 being available for download, Kima posed an interesting question in the comments. Kima asked whether the new enforcement of NX compatability by the C# compiler after the application of 2.0 SP1 would affect ASP.NET applications? Specifically...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio 2008 SDK 1.0 and Visual Studio 2008 Shell released

    My colleague Phil brought to my attention yet another release following on from the release of Visual Studio 2008 earlier this week.

  • Blog Post: Installing (and uninstalling) .NET Framework 2.0 SP1

    An interesting point about the .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 is that it is both a service pack AND a full install. By that I mean if you already have .NET 2.0 installed then it gets updated. If you haven't, it doesn't matter, it gets installed anyway. The "service pack" download (NetFx20SP1_x86.exe) is only...

  • Blog Post: Powerful new admin automation options for IIS7

    In version 7 of IIS a powerful new API for administering the server from managed code is exposed in the Microsoft.Web.Administration namespace.

  • Blog Post: More adventures with Orcas on Longhorn

    Let's be clear from the start, if you read the readme.htm (which I did, uncharacteristically) for Orcas Beta 2 it does not list Windows Server 2008 as a currently supported operating system so I can't blame anyone else for my pain.... So despite the warning signs I ploughed ahead anyway to install Orcas...
  • Blog Post: Migrating a web site from Orcas Beta1 to Beta2 - "Unrecognized tag prefix or device filter 'asp'."

    I ran into a minor problem with an existing web site I have which was running Orcas Beta1 after I upgraded to Beta2. It's a content rich site so I spend quite a lot of time just editing pages in between doing actual builds and while editing I kept seeing the error "Unrecognized tag prefix or device filter...
  • Blog Post: Orcas Beta 2 has arrived!

    Disgraceful! No, not disgraceful that Orcas Beta 2 has arrived but that I haven't blogged anything since 25th of May. And now it is 27th July! In my defense it has been a busy old couple of months. Although a lot of our customers start to go on holiday about this time of year, a lot of my colleagues...
