Visual Studio 2010 Macros vsaenv cannot find one or more components error

This week has been nothing but hassles after upgrading to Visual Studio 2010 Professional.  After a few days running VS2010, I was happy with the installation so I decided to uninstall Visual Studio 2008 from my computer.  The uninstall went fine and I even bounced my PC just to be on the safe side. At first Studio 2010 seemed completely unaffected by the uninstall of VS2008, but boy was I wrong.  As soon as I tried to fire off a recorded macro VS2010 just sits there like it’s going to hang.  Eventually I noticed a background popup box in the t...

AbleCommerce 7 Build Web Site with Visual Studio 2010

Having problems building your AbleCommerce 7 website with VS2010?  So am I.

Sure would be nice to spend time programming instead of fighting VS2010.  Upgrading to Visual Studio 2010 may not...

Control an ASP.Net Modal Popup within a Gridview Row

First we have to add a Panel to our HTML.  This panel will contain everything included in our popup window.  Here’s a ...

ASP.Net error ScriptManager does not exist in the current context

I just recently upgraded to Visual Studio 2010.  After trying to build the site for the first time (in VS2010 that is), I got an unusual error message. For some reason, VS2010 didn’t like this code any more when VS2008 was ok with it: ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock(page, typeof(string), "EditHTML", js, true); Visual Studio 2010 was complaining that ScriptManager does not exist in the current context.  Yet it compiled fine in 2008 Studio. After a little searching on the net, I found a conversation about having to add a refere...
