Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005(E_ACCESSDENIED)) – Parallels PLESK 9.3 – Solved

Problem :

As the error message said, Access is denied. It means that the user account under which asp.net is running is trying to access resource without having sufficient permissions on that resource.

Solution :

1. Login to your Virtual Machine using Remote Desktop ( mstsc )

2. Go to “C:\plesk\etc\DiskSecurity” folder

3. Edit disksecurity.xml file. Add following entry at the end ( before </Entries> )

<Entry AccounType="1" Account="Psacln" Path="C:\Windows\assembly" AceFlags="FilesOnly" AccessMask="Read" EntryFlags="0x0" />

4. Save.

And you are done… Enjoy…


Asp.Net Set Medium trust in local

My almost all  web sites are hosted on goDaddy shared medium trust hosting.It is always painful to get things running on medium trust environment after got it running on your development environment.

But now you can set medium trust environment on your local machine and check every functionality there only.

You need to add following configuration in your web.config

<system.web>
    <trust level="Medium" />
</system.web>
Now you can test your application as if it is running under Medium Trust environment.
 

BugTracker.Net : Add attachment gives you invlaid id

Hi, We are using BugTracker.net to Track Bugs ;)

It has fairly almost all features one need to track issues related to development and above all its free. Highly recommended after using it for almost 1 year.

We were facing a strange bug in it from quite a few time.

Whenever we try to add attachment to issue, it always failed with message “invalid id”.

After a bit of Google, we found following solution here :

In add_attachment.aspx. file remove attribute action=add_attachment.aspx from the form tag.

ie

Change :

<form class=frm runat="server" enctype="multipart/form-data" action=add_attachment.aspx  >

To :

<form class=frm runat="server" enctype="multipart/form-data" >

 

Happy Bug Tracking :)


svn : Can not Parse lock / entries hashfile


Recently we moved our svn repositories from one URL to other. I don’t remember exactly what happened, but we started to get error

“svn : Can not Parse lock / entries hashfile “

whenever we try to take lock or release any lock from on any file in that repository. I have tried a hell lot to solve this problem, but I was not able to solve it in a clean manner.

So I have decided to take reset all the locks and asked on StackOverflow to help me. I received answer from Ben Blank and I followed his advise. I have manually release all locks from repository by Deleting <root>/db/locks folder. And all the locks were reset again.

Caution : Make sure you take backup of your repositories before doing such things.

Asp.Net website : Exclude folder from compilation

Problem :

We used to have asp.net website projects, which does not come with project files like .csproj. We also have fckEditor folder in our project. So now every time when I build my project it unnecessarily also build fckEditor folder also which is really annoying to me ( I hate when something takes too long to build :) ).

If you are working on Asp.Net Web Application then the solution is very simple, you just have to “Exclude it” from the project. BUT we are working on WebSite project not web application project.

Solution :

In fact it is quiet simple. Just hide the folder, I mean, Make the folder ( the one that you don’t want to be included in compiling process) hidden and it will not be there in the build list.  So simple. :)
