Why is the TT app looking for Issue Tracker? I have tried everything I can think of to elliminate this data base call from the installation, but the app bombs with an error looking for this data base EVERYTIME!!
The error message:
ConnectionString configuration is missing from you web.config. It should contain: <connectionStrings> <add key="aspnet_starterkits_TimeTracker" Value="Server=(local);Integrated Security=True;Database=IssueTracker" </connectionStrings/>
Outside of the verbose source, there is NO information about this. The error is generated in the DAL (by the way, the spelling in the comments and error messages is rather laughable -- who wrote this stuff?), apparently somewhere (I sure wished I new where)
a call is being made to this data base, which doesn't exist as part of the app.
I have tried to sanitize the database, SP's and classes of this reference, yet the app continues to bomb and thow the same error. This happens after the first user is added, and tries to login to the time tracker.
I modified the Framework config, and machine config files to point at the named SQL 2005 instance on my machine, but to no avail. By the way, it is my understanding that this program was intended for the default installation of SQLEXPRESS. Why not explain the
cross over requirements when posting a new program?
Not everyone is a production level programmer/developer (although I seriously doubt an engineer would waste time on figuring this out!)
I have tried as many ways as I could think of to install this app and get functionality, and have NO SUCCESS!!
I tried another machine under the 1.1 Net Framework, downloaded the appropriate TT app, installed it, and it ran THE VERY FIRST TIME!!
What is happenning with this? And why would something this difficult to get functionailty from be posted following the release of what I think is a good iteration of Visual Studio??
Come on Microsoft! If it doesn't work correctly, then don't rush it out to everyone and put them through all the lost time and effort!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRR
