Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 – Upgrade Issues

Just upgrading some of my projects and am going to note some of the breaking changes for anyone else.

Entity Framework

System.Data.Objects.ObjectContextOptions

//deprecated
ContextOptions.DeferredLoadingEnabled = true;

//beta 2
ContextOptions.LazyLoadingEnabled = false;


Update:

It seems the T4 template for the Self Tracking Entities was not updated with this change for the ContextOptions.

Here is the Fix

Just unzip and replace the following files.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplatesCache\CSharp\Code\1033\AdoNetEntityDataModelT4SelfTrackingCodeGenCsharp.zip\EF.SelfTracking.Context.ctp.CS.tt

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplatesCache\CSharp\Code\1033\AdoNetEntityDataModelT4PocoCodeGenCSharp.zip\EF.Poco.Context.ctp.CS.tt

Workflow

When I opened up my Solution with a Workflow project it was unable to open it.
It seems they have now added two new Workflow Project Types.

WCF Workflow Service Application
Workflow Console Application

Also it seems the XAML has changed and the designer can’t interpret old Activities.

Update:

Found another bug which I just battled an hour with.

My Custom Activities weren’t showing up in the Workflow toolbox it turns out that they only show up when the Activity Library project is not contained in a Solution folder.


The referenced assembly "DLLName.dll" could not be resolved because it has a dependency on "System.Web, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" which is not in the currently targeted framework ".NETFramework,Version=v4.0,Profile=Client".

  1. Hi,

    I am having the same issue with Custom Activities in Solution Folder. Is there any workaround for this?

Freeing Disk Space on C:\ Windows Server 2008

I just spent the last little while trying to clear space on our servers in order to install .NET 4.5. Decided to post so my future self can find the information when I next have to do this. I performed all the usual tasks: Deleting any files/folders from C:\windows\temp and C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\TempDelete all EventViewer logs Save to another Disk if you want to keep themRemove any unused programs, e.g. FirefoxRemove anything in C:\inetpub\logsRemove any file/folders C:\Windows\System32\LogFilesRemove any file/folders from C:\Users\%UserName%\DownloadsRemove any file/folders able to be removed from C:\Users\%UserName%\DesktopRemove any file/folders able to be removed from C:\Users\%UserName%\My DocumentsStop Windows Update service and remove all files/folders from C:\Windows\SoftwareDistributionDeleting an Event Logs Run COMPCLN.exe Move the Virtual Memory file to another disk However this wasn’t enough & I found the most space was cleared by using the Disk Cleanup to…

CPF Contribution Rates for new Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR’s)

Recently my wife and I applied and got approved for Singapore Permanent Residency. After completing the formalities the most significant immediate change is the contribution to CPF which is Singapore’s mandatory social security savings scheme requiring contributions from employers and employees. CPF contributions start from the date you obtain SPR status, which is the date of the entry permit.   Being a relentless budgeter I needed to know exactly how much I and my employer would have to contribute so that I could adjust my budget accordingly as the employee contributions get deducted from the monthly salary. After doing some research I discovered that there is a “graduated” approach to CPF contributions for new SPR’s where the contributions gradually increase in the first and second year and then upon reaching the third year are at the full amount. Note: There is an option for employers to contribute the full amount for year 1 and year 2 and the employee can use the graduated rate, b…

Consuming the SSRS ReportExecutionService from a .NET Client

I’ve just finished writing a nice wrapper which internally calls the SSRS ReportExecutionService to generate reports.
Whilst it was fairly simple to implement there has been some major changes between 2005 and 2008 and the majority of online and documentation is based on the 2005 implementation. The most important change is that the Report Server and Report Manager are no longer hosted in IIS which will be a welcomed change to Sys Admins but makes the security model and hosting model vastly different. So far I’ve yet to figure out how to allow Anonymous Access, if anyone knows how to do this leave a comment and it will be most appreciated. Getting StartedTo get started you’ll want to add a service reference to http://localhost/ReportServer_SQL2008/ReportExecution2005.asmx where ReportServer_SQL2008 is the name you configure in the Reporting Services Configuration Manager. The Web Application files are located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.SQL2008\Reporting Servic…
