I'm cleaning out my emails today and noticed this discussion going around so thought I would share a link with you. My position is, essentially, unless you have multiple personality disorder, there really is no need to mix code in this way. If you think I'm on crack let me know...
If you haven't gone through installing VS 2005 on Vista then you might want to refer to these links to help you along the way.
SQL Reporting Services from the forums https://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1376728&SiteID=17
VS and SP1 info from "the man" Scott Guthrie http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2006/12/15/visual-studio-2005-service-pack-1-sp1-released.aspx
Additional VS install info http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa948853.aspx
Some of the major points to note:
1) Make sure you install the IIS 6 compatability stuff in Vista BEFORE installing SQL Reporting Services or VS
2) Get the SQL sp2 and VS sp1 (and sp1 update for Vista!!) service packs on before freaking out that your install doesn't work
3) Run VS as administrator unless you are really bored and just need to kill time with errors that don't matter
I know you have probably head about this on every blog by now, but just wanted to make sure it sinks in. We have some kick butt stuff coming up you really want to sign up for, make sure to check out our new events to get more info on these:
Session 1: Next Generation Identity Management: Windows CardSpace
Session 2: Revving up Cross-Browser and Cross-Server Web Sites with the Microsoft AJAX Library
Session 3: Best Practices for Building Next Generation Web Applications Using Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX
Okay, so the title says it all. I'm the newest addition to the MSDN DE team based in Texas--freshly minted last Friday. My goal is to create an environment where my customers/students/victims can talk about pretty much whatever you want to talk about.
I am HUGE into resources but don't expect me to go too link crazy. Some of the stuff I'll write will totally resonate (big word I heard today) with you and some of it won't. So sit back, relax...relax some more...just a little more..., and get ready for the ride.
It's great to be here!
