Visual Studio and MSTest: Deploying Files

Microsoft’s unit testing infrastructure provides a number of options for deploying files to the test directory when running tests. Deploy files/directories for all tests in all test projects. Deploy files/directories for a specific test, specified in the UI. Deploy files/directories for all tests in a test class, specified in code. Deploy files/directories for a specific […]

Visual Studio and MSTest: Introduction

I’m coming up to speed on my new company’s development environment, and part of that is the usage of Microsoft’s unit testing infrastructure built into Visual Studio 2008. One of the things the tests need to be able to do is load DLLs provided by a third party. However, the unit testing environment is (or […]

.NET Framework Setup Verification Tool

I was running down an issue with building a 32-bit application in Visual Studio 2008 on a 64-bit version of Windows 7 and a number of articles online suggested that .NET Framework v2.0 should be reinstalled. Most of these were talking about Windows Vista, but I thought I would run this down. Aaron Stebner has […]

Edit file in Visual Studio from command line

For years I’ve used a tool I found internally at Microsoft called VSEdit to load a file into an existing instance of Visual Studio from the command line. Microsoft released that handy little tool on MSDN (albeit without the source), but they also added the feature directly to the Visual Studio executable image (devenv). Sara […]

Enable Ping on Windows Server 2008

When setting up new servers, one of the first things to do is to make sure other machines can connect to.  The easiest way to do that has typically been to use the ping command, which sends an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) or Echo message to the remote machine.  Due to security concerns, however, […]

osCommerce admin login won’t login

I’ve been implementing a new website using the WP.osC framework (based on osCommerce) and ran into a problem of not being able to login to the admin panel.  It would simply redirect back to the admin login page.  This typically occurred when I would change the URL to the store website. Quite a few people […]

mysql_connect to localhost on Windows 7 and Windows Vista times out

I’ve been developing PHP websites against mysql on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and finally decided I needed to start doing my testing and debugging on a client machine instead.  My development machine runs Windows 7 so it is running the same version of IIS as my Windows Server 2008 R2 machine.
