DPack 2.5 (Beta 3) with Visual Studio 2005 (RTM) support is out

New DPack beta is out just in time for Visual Studio 2005 launch event. Final DPack version 2.5 should be available sometime by the end of this month.

Here’s what’s new and changed in this release:

  • Added new Solution Browser feature.
  • Modified Solution Backup feature to calculate relative file path when full path configuration option is not selected.
  • Fixed an editor selection problem on VS 2005. The problem had to do with the editor cursor disappearing sometimes after using either Code Browser or File Browser feature.
  • Modified Framework Browser not to delete cache file on each installation.
  • Added support for Whidbey RTM. Please note that all pre-RTM Whidbey versions such as Beta 2, CTPs and RC are no longer supported. DPack will install and run on Whidbey RC but as I said, that version is not supported.
  • Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.

The new version is available at www.usysware.com/dpack/. Enjoy!

    DPACK website is DOWN!

    It appears to be up now. It’s quite possible it was down briefly as my host was finishing up .NET 2.0 installation on their servers.

    Let me know if you’re still having issues accessing it. Thanks.

    Sam,

    I see you posted yesterday around 7:45pm EST. Is that about right time frame? Have you noticed if the site was down just temporarily?

    After you provide more info I’ll be happy to forward it to my ISP. Thanks.

    Server Error in ‘/’ Application.
    ——————————————————————————–

    Runtime Error
    Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

    Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a tag within a “web.config” configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This tag should then have its “mode” attribute set to “Off”.

    Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the “defaultRedirect” attribute of the application’s configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

    Thanks for the info. I see 4 server errors logged yesterday and none today. I’ll follow up with my ISP.

    I’ve just tried accessing the site and it worked fine. Are you saying it’s still down for you (because it’s currently up)? What browser do you use btw?

    Down now again with IE 7. Is it the browser?

    I don’t think so as this is an ASP.NET 2 Server error:
    Server Error in ‘/’ Application.

    Interesting… it is browser related. I’ve just setup VPC with XP SP2 and IE7 Beta 1 and sure enough got the same error.

    BTW, the web site is an ASP.NET 1.1 application, not ASP.NET 2.0.

    I’m looking into that but if you need to download DPack in the mean time, I’d be happy to post direct download URLs.

    Thanks.

    Should be fixed now.

    That was a menu control bug pertaining to browser (IE7 in this case) version handling. I’m real sorry about the problem and very much appreciate you helping me figure it out. Let me know if you’re still for some reason unable to access the site.
