Visual Web Developer 2010 Installation with Web Platform Installer - SQL Server 2008 Express Authentication Method

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am installing Visual Web Developer 2010 through the Web Platform installer and having selected the software to install you get the screen where you choose the authentication method.  Reading through the MSDN is says that Windows Security is best so I click that radio button and fill in no other boxes.  I am running this on a Windows XP with all the updates etc and I do not have a password on my Windows account.  The install fails after around 1.5 hours and a number of reboots.

    Do I need a password on my Windows account and do I need to fill out anymore info in the authentication screens.

    Kind regards

  • Hi Peter,

     

    Thanks for posting back.

     

    According to your description, seems like the Web PI will install and configure VWD together with SQL Server 2008 Express at the same time.  I think this issue is more related with the Web PI. I would suggest you open a new post in the Web Platform Installer Forum: http://forums.iis.net/1155.aspx to get more efficient response.

     

    Additionally, you can refer to this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb500433.aspx for how to install and configure SQL Server Express.

     

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • Hi Peter,

     

    Thanks for your post.

     

    First, there are several things I would like to clarify with you:

    -          Did the “choose the authentication method” screen appear while installing Visual Web Developer(VWD), or when you create a web project?

    -          Would you please let me know the MSDN article link in your post?

     

    If you could not install VWD 2010 by WPI, you can consider download an offline install ISO image file from the link below instead:
    http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions/visual-web-developer-express

    Choose the DOWNLOAD tab, then you can Find the Offline Install ISO image file in the right part of the page, choose your language and start download Visual Web Developer 2010 Express.

     

    After download, you can either:

    -          Extract the ISO image, to your local computer, that you have just created using something like ISOBuster and run the installation from the hard drive/hard disk;

    -          Mount the ISO image to a virtual CD drive, using another 3rd party tool something like MSVCD, and run the installation from here.

     

    Before install VWD 2010, please finish the steps below:

    -          Turn off your anti-virus/antispyware software during installation;

    -          Install the latest Windows updates from the Windows Update site: http://update.microsoft.com;

    -          Complete or dismiss Windows Update before installation. (And don't forget to turn it on later);

    -          Clean your %temp% folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%);

     

    Then please run the setup with Administrator privilege: right-click the installer -> Run as administrator.

     

    If the installation fails again, please collect the logs from "%temp%" folder with the Log Collection Tool.

    -          Collect tool: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e0da314f-6216-4a18-bc6b-7d29cf83af20&displaylang=en

    -          Then you can send the vslogs.cab file to me for further support (E-mail: : v-anwu_at_microsoft_dot_com).

    Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

     

    If you have any concerns, please feel free to let me know.

  • Andrew,

    Thanks for the detailed reply.

    The '“choose the authentication method” message is coming during installation.  I launch the Web Platform Installer V3, and pick VWD Express 2010, and then brings up a list of pre-requistes it needs to install which include SQL Server 2008 Express R2.  I then click next and it brings up the “choose the authentication method” screen.

    I would prefer to use the Web Platform installer method as this installs all the extra bit and bobs like the MVC3 Tools. 

    The page I was reading was this one:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms144284.aspx

    Could you let me know if the right place for this sort of query is here or the IIS WebPI forum?

    Is there a MSDN page which explains this screen?

    Kind regards

    Peter Jones
