Some facts on Sharepoint 2010

By following Lee Richardson's blog, I came to know about few good and few shocking news about Sharepoint 2010. Lets start with some good news:

(i) Sharepoint 2010 will have inline list editing with AJAX Support.
(ii) Workflows created using Sharepoint designer can be resued by the same way what Visual Studio does
(iii) Sharepoint 2010 will support ASP.NET Data Services API.
(iv) BDC will also insert or update the data.
(v) You can edit Sharepoint Solutions without touching XML! Whooo!!!

To me, shocking news is related to the requirement part:
(i) Windows Server 2008 will be needed. So what will happen to me if I have Windows 2003?
(ii) 64 bit SQL Server 2005/2008 is needed.
(iii) There will be no support for Sharepoint 2010 in IE6. I am not sure whether it is because of AJAX or not.

You may recieve the following error after creating a web application in MOSS 2007:

It probably means that there is no site collection created for the newly created web application. So just go to Central Administration >> Application Management >> Create Site Collection. Create a site collection under the web application and you will stop recieving the error.

Error connecting to undo manager of source file

This error is very confusing and irriritating as it does not give any clear indication about what the problem is. I got this error when I was using Visual Studio 2008 to compile and run a web application. Steps that I followed to overcome this issue were as follows:

(i) I deleted the source file (designer.cs) from the project. But before that, I took a backup of the designer.cs file to be in a safer position.
(ii) Then I right clicked on the ASPX page and select "Covert to Web Application". Finally, I compiled the page and executed it within Visual Studio without the error.

The report server cannot decrypt the symmetric key that is used to access sensitive or encrypted data in a report server database...

In SQL Server Report Manager page, sometimes you may recieve the following error:


Don't worry. Just go to SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 Configuration Manager. Go to Encryption Keys tab. Click on the Delete Encrypted Content button. It will sove the issue.
