SharePoint 2010–Sandboxed Solutions Not Running On Server

So this one took a couple of days. Long story short, This was showing up in the ULS logs: SPUCHostService.exe (0x23E8) 0x17B4 SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service fe8a Medium – – Unable to activate worker process proxy object within the worker process Did a little searching around, found this script.  Still not totally sure what the ramifications are by allow full control of this registry entry and how insecure I’ve just made my environment, but long story short, it works! $acl = Get-Acl HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName $person = [System.Security.Principal.NTAccount]"Users" $access = [System.Security.AccessControl.RegistryRights]::FullControl $inheritance = [System.Security.AccessControl.InheritanceFlags]"ContainerInherit, ObjectInherit" $propagation = [System.Security.AccessControl.PropagationFlags]::None $type = [System.Security.AccessControl.AccessControlType]::Allow $rule = New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.RegistryAccessRule($person, $access, $inheritance, $propagation, $type) $acl.AddAccessRule($rule) Set-Acl HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName...

SharePoint 2010 – Application pools recycle when memory limits are exceeded (PART 2)

Recently I started seeing this error show up in the Health Analyzer after consolidating some of my SharePoint application pools so as to conserve some server resources.  On this particular farm we had set up a main collaboration site running under it’s own application pool, and then about a dozen web applications that contained custom coding that we ended un consolidating under another application pool. Now there are actually several reasons for this error to occur.  If you’ve set up a large farm and broken out your app server from your WFE servers, then this error is pretty standard as Microsoft has this rule set up as an all or nothing type rule as documented here. However, another reason for this error message coming up is if you’ve consolidated your application pools and reassigned your web applications to use one generic pool, while you can safely delete these application pools, SharePoint is still looking for them in order to verify their existence and proper settings.  When it can’t find them, that is when it gives you the MSCryptic and quite wrong error message that there is a problem with the application pool recycle settings. In order to “fix” the alert, first you need to check and see what application pools the SharePoint farm is still expecting on the servers, to get this list you can open a PowerShell console...

Windows 8–Walkthrough on Building a Windows Store App

No, I’m not going to give you a step by step of how to create the apps here, there is already a great walkthrough located on Microsoft’s site here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/jj679957 I ran through a few of their tutorials in the last couple of days with regards to XAML and C# in Visual Studio 2012. I built the traditional “Hello World” application.  It is a nice walk through and of course got to the basics of developing an app for windows 8.  Biggest impression I was left with is that while you may already know how to code an application to function on the Windows platform, the biggest new hurdle will be managing the application state on load, suspend and terminate and handling the presentation visual states for FullScreenLandscape, Filled, FullScreenPortrait and Snapped.  Storyboarding transitions and animations also play an important role in giving the application a polished look.   The second application I walked through was the Blog Reader application.  It also is a pretty good walkthrough that really focuses on the transitions and orientations.  However, unlike the previous Hello World I really found myself lost on a couple of the steps.  It was great that they had the full set of code and I could walk through each component, but I really found myself doing the code cut-and-paste, running the app to make sure I pasted in the...
