Install IIS 7 on Windows Vista and Windows 7


You can use the Microsoft® Web Platform Installer (Web PI) to easily install Internet Information Services (IIS), and applications that run on IIS. To learn more about the Web PI, see Learn about and install the Web PI.

If you choose to install IIS 7.0 or IIS 7.5 (collectively known as IIS 7) manually, you can use this article for guidance.

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have installed one of the editions of Windows Vista or Windows 7 on which IIS 7 is supported before you proceed. Not all IIS features are supported on all editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7. Home Basic and Starter editions include only limited basic features of IIS. To see a list of which features are supported on the edition of Windows you are using, see one of the following:

Also be sure that you have administrative user rights on the computer. By default, you do not have administrative privileges if you are logged on as a user other than the built-in administrator, even if you were added to the local Administrators group on the computer (this is a new security feature in Windows Server® 2008 called Local User Administrator). Log on either to the built-in administrator account, or explicitly invoke applications as the built-in administrator using the runas command-line tool.

Note that you can run runas /user:administrator cmd.exe so that every application you run from that command line will be elevated, eliminating the need to use the runas syntax from that command line.

If you are logged on to an account other than the built-in local administrator account, you may see the following security alert dialog box.

Call User-defined Function on Linked Server :SQL Server

If you try to invoke a user-defined function (UDF) through a linked server in SQL Server by using a "four-part naming" convention (server.database.dbo.Function), you may receive error message. 
The reason is User-defined function calls inside a four-part linked server query are not supported in SQL Server. Thats why error message indicates that the syntax of a Transact-SQL statement is incorrect. 
To work around this problem, use the Openquery function instead of the four-part naming convention. For example, instead of the following query
Select * from Linked_Server.database.dbo.Function(10)
run a query with the Openquery function:
Select * from Openquery(Linked_Server,'select database.dbo.Function(10)') If the user-defined function takes variable or scalar parameters, you can use the sp_executesql stored procedure to avoid this behavior.  For example:
exec Linked_Server.database.dbo.sp_executesql N'SELECT database.dbo.Function(@input)',N'@input int',@inp…

Max Length not working for Multi Line Text Box : Solution

In almost all the web projects, we require a multiline TextBox control. It was annoying to find that maxLength property doesn't work on multiline textboxes. There is a workaround to accomplish this using RegularExpressionValidator. Following is the markup that will restrict the text box to maximum of 500 characters.

OR You it can be done so easily using javascript functions.

I suggest that we should put a javascript validator function so that user will not be able to enter characters more than the length specified, even cant paste any text with more than specified characters. Here are those javascript functions.

TextBox Control


// Keep user from entering more than maxLength characters function doKeypress(control){ maxLength = control.attributes["maxLength"].value; value = control.value; if(maxLength && value.length > maxLength-1){ event.returnValue = false; maxLength = parseInt(maxLength); } }

// Cancel default…
