VS2012 Help RRS feed

  • User-723833757 posted

    I recently installed windows 7, so I decided to update to VS2012 express, I think I made a mistake or the installation and upgrade should come with some instructions.

    1. I can't get fonts and colors to customize

    2. I can't get my updated database to work properly - will not open design surface, will not open my stored procedures, will not save/update the database when I change tables or relationships. Asks me to save a separate file and then when I reopen nothing has changed. Queries that worked before stop working.

    3. Membership and Roles do not work

    The fonts and colors while being a nuissance, I can live without, but I can't live without the data in my database.

    What happened to the asp.net configuration tool that helps setup roles/permissions etc????

    What server are they using to display on your machine? IIS????

    Is there a way to display on your machine without debugging???

    Is there any info, help, tutorial on migrating to VS2012 from 2010???

    Hello,

    What server are they using to display on your machine? IIS????

    Yes. Since you use VS2012 express, it use IIS express. Cassini is no longer in VS2012.

    Is there a way to display on your machine without debugging???

    You mean your website? Sure, you can publish the website on IIS. Check my blog post on how to deploy your website.

    What "Express" product did you install? Odds are you are going to need a full version or run multiple Express products for your needs.

    Hi Bobby-Z

    If you want to install VS 2012 express, you could download the type of Visual Studio Express 2012 products you want from this, then run it.

    hope it helps you.
