At CodeProject we spend an awful lot of time playing with room heaters, or as others like to call them, "servers". Over the years we've seen it all, some of it smoking, most of it usually working just nicely until something happens.
What that something is can be hard to find so we've created a quiet place for those battle scarred and frustrated to get a little help.
I currently have a .NET 4.0 website successfully running on Windows Server 2008. It utilises SQL Compact 4.0 which resides in the App_Data folder. The database dlls reside in the bin folder.
I am moving to a new web host company and I want to test this on Windows 2012, ultimately with a view to moving to .NET 4.5 and, later, SQL Server.
My starting point was to move across all of my website folders, including a test database and SQLCE dlls and test the site.
Unfortunately I get the following error message when loading the home page for the first time. "Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed. "
The first part of the trace states:
[ArgumentException: Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed.]
System.Data.Common.DbProviderFactories.GetFactory(String providerInvariantName) +1480919
System.Data.EntityClient.EntityConnection.GetFactory(String providerString) +26
I am still learning .NET and server environment so please be kind. I have researched for answers this morning but it seems to raise more questions than answers for me.
Given my setup and the errors shown is there a best place to look/check first?
That suggests that you do not have SQLCE installed on the new server, even though you have copied the DLLs. Some products are required to have the installation process run in order to set up links and registration information.

Good day friends! Am stuck on my social network site since i can't get the hosting section solved. I designed a social network site with asp.net (vs 2010) using 4.0 .net frame work and ms sql 2005 as the backend. I want to host it and the following are the things I need: I want to have my own domain name, host the site on server that charged at low cost, support windows hosting, host it on a server that runs 24/7. Please give me the steps as this is my first attempt.

And i am expecting a response from this method. But based on the result available in few articles in Internet, it seems like ComplexType object can only be passed in POST method not in GET method. But i want an array result from the above method as response.
Could any one help me how the UriTemplate an be assigned to the above method.?
And how to pass JsonInput Parameter to this REST method from c# client application and how to parse the result back to double type at client side.?
A few days ago I posted here a message to ask for the best solution to test a website. At same time I decided to try some web hosting services to run a simple SVC web API.
I tried www.ovh.com (france), www.aruba.it (italy) and www.hostforlife.com (luxembourg). I was unable to set up my very simple ASP.NET C# 4.0 SVC Rest web API. I can publish my file without any problem but the web API doesn't work. It seems like the hosting services are not able to deal with svc file. The help of these services is so bad that I don't know what to do.
Do you know a good hosting service that understand and can mamage web svc API?
This issue may be out of scope for this forum; however, I have not found anything that solves this issue on the net. This is the situation. I have deployed an MVC web service to a Windows 2008 r2 server and insured that IIS is configured correctly, to the best of my knowledge, using Windows authentication and when I try to access the MVC web service I am getting a 404 error not found error. Now, when I try to access the service on another server it find the web service fine. I know that this is not a Server configuration forum but any help would be great.
I'm looking for an easy and cheap Windows Server / IIS / SQL solution. I just want to be able to deploy my application on a test machine. This is not for production.
First I looked at Azure and other hosting services. When you are requesting for a Windows Server with IIS and SQL it's too expensive. They offer a lot of services I don't need.
I'm now looking to build my own server at home. I already have a Synology but I cannot install IIS or a virtual machine on the Synology. I think I'll have to buy a new PC. I'm thinking of something like the Asus eeeBox but I'm not sure the eebox can run IIS or windows server.
What is the best solution? Virtual machine, hosting, Azure, new PC?
Really depends on what you're trying to test... for me, there's nothing like having a PC with multi-boot setup for testing.
Why? ...because depending on the software that you're testing, if you find issues in the Virtual Machine, then you have to determine whether the issue comes from the virtualization process or if it's a real bug within your code. You also tend to spend a lot of time setting up a virtual system the way you need it, so IMO, for testing, it's worth it in the long run to just get a system you can boot into multiple OS's. I had a single, cheap server that I had set up to boot into three different versions of Windows Server, worked great for testing and I never had a doubt whether any extra layers were causing an issue.
Of course, virtualization has its benefits.... you always have a clean copy of the OS running (if that's what you want/need) and you can easily change OS's with little downtime.
Cloud based solutions tend to pretty much be virtual machines too.. so the only added benefit is the hosting is managed by someone else. Recurring costs are the drawback. Plus depending on your application, you may not want it hosted on the cloud, where someone else's sloppy security might affect you down the road.
You should also differentiate if you need to access computers in a different network or in the same network (which may be a virtual private network also). In the latter case, some kind of VNC might do.
Commercial alternatives usually offer more possibilities and thus might be worth their money!

I have a regular C# desktop GUI application providing regular windows interface.
WCF is not used for supporting these interfaces, since it mainly working as a standalone desktop application, with a lot of data involved in data transfer. But I have used WCF with netNamedPipeBinding for UI automation.
Now I would like to call these interfaces from a web page also.
So in my understanding
1. I have to host my desktop application as WCF web service
( with httpBinding and need o provide a new contract for the interfaces).
2. Call the existing I/Fs from the new interface class.
Thank you Wayne. I am a beginner in web development.
My real concern is whether I would go for a WCF service, REST service or a Web Api.
My primary intention is to use the service in a client web application. Later I also planning to use it from different devices like tab/mob.
