Or, "Quick hack to get Windows Presentation Foundation running with Firefox".
I have FF installed on my desktop, it's my default browser, and this is, in general "a good thing". However, I've just installed the latest bits of the .Net Framework, and things are not all well in the world.
Couple of notes to self mostly:
I had a couple of problems with an ASP.Net 2.0 site on Windows XP Pro, namely I first received errors like:
Failed to execute the request because the ASP.NET process identity does not have read permissions to the global assembly cache. Error: 0x80070005 Access is denied.
So, my rubbish telephone/broadband provider are really taking the biscuit this time aren't they? How's this for a tale of woe and depression:
On 20 July, I inform them that I'm moving house on the 29 July, and wish to take my phone and broadband service with me, and while we're at it, let's switch to their Total Broadband Option 3 - the one they've been advertising on the telly recently.
Getting AjaxPro (CodePlex Start Kit) to behave in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). While the means to do this are available in the Starter Kit, the "Quick Guide" doesn't really cover the main points here.
Hooray! We've finally upgraded the last of our sites to ASP.Net 2.0, and all the goodness that entails - Generics, Membership Providers, Master Pages, the works.
I have to say, while the profile provider out of the box is a little rubbish - the entire profile is stored as a delimited field in one column of the database - the rest of it's wonderful. Only thing that confused me for a little while was the application names - if you change the name in the membership provider, don't forget to change it for all the other providers (roles, profiles, etc). No real point in logging-in/registering at the moment, I've not wired anything up to use it yet.
