It’s with some satisfaction that I’m able to fill this one under the “solved” section. I’m currently building a Reporting Services solution which generates price lists which includes images of products along with some other information. My dataset includes a column with a path for the image of a particular product, but I can’t be sure that the image actually exists in the file system which means that a call to System.IO.File.Exists is needed. Thus my trouble begins: The methods always returns false even though the file is accessible…. Hours of head scratching ensues until I find that Reporting Services includes its own policy file which doesn’t allow access to the file system.

A quick change to the file Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Reporting Services\ReportServer\rssrvpolicy.config makes all the difference in the world. Initially I gave RS FullTrust just to narrow the potential sources of error to a minimum, but FileIOPermission will suffice in my case. Specifically I changed the following node from




Also do remember that we are deailing with XML thus case very muhc matters. "Fulltrust" does not yield the same results as "FullTrust".

For the past couple of weeks the My Music folder has been missing from the Start menu. Trying to change it using Tweak UI was impossible because it had disappeared from there as well. The problem in first place must’ve been me trying to place the folder on a unaccessible network share.

The fix is simple once you know where to look. Change the following two registry keys to the location of your “My Music” folder and you’re set.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Looks like the Danish price for Xbox 360 will be DKK 3199,– for a kit including all the goodies. A core system will bleed you for DKK 2399,-. I do believe I know what I want to give myself for Christmas

IMO the pricing of the system is extremely competitive. Can’t wait to see how the Media Center integration works out.

The long awaited EAP for Resharper 2.0 with support for both Visual Studio .NET 2005 and more importantly Visual Studio 2005 has finally started. The download weights in at 16 MB, quite a bit larger than the 1.x release. More to follow when I’ve gotten the sucker installed and taken for a spin.

The one thing which has been keeping me from really diving into .NET 2.0 was the lack of Resharper for VS 2005 so naturally I’m psyched about this release

Go download it.

I’m very exited to learn that Microsoft is launching a project code named Atlas which aims to provide an AJAX implementation for ASP.NET 2.0. Scott Guthrie, program manager for IIS and ASP.NET, has some details in his post entitled Atlas Project where states that we will have tech preview as soon as the PDC in September.

Looks like my blog has just been through a field test of comment spam using the Comment API. Thanks to the recent attention to the Comment API on various blogs it looks like the spammers have gotten wind of the technique.

I’ve turned off the Comment API for now, I’m guessing that it won’t come back until we see some form a user authentication on DasBlog.

According to Jetbrains’ Chief Scientist and Vice President of Product Development, Valentin Kipiatkov, we can expect to see an EAP version of Resharper 2.0 soon. He states that a probable time of release will be in two weeks time. Resharper 2.0 is of course the version which we’ve all been waiting for; primarily for the added support for Visual Studio 2005 which is also yet to be released.

Valentin Kipiatkov, “My best guess is in 2 weeks.”.
