I think here is the problem.

I seem to have solved this problem.
I did the following:

.SQLEXPRESS and the database name to Library.
I then added the following to app.config: It seems to work now.
|connect visual studio and sql express on amazon EC2|
Assuming that you have a connection string (to server
ec-xxxxxxx.xxx.amazon.com), your problem could be that the .Net instance
(let's call it NET) and the SQL Server instance (SQL) don't have the rights
to see each other.
Create two instances with the different security groups
On both groups, you'll like want to open RDP (you probably have that
already as I can read)
On the SQL instance security group create an inbound rule for port 1433 and
open it only for the security group of WEB. Otherwise, the whole world can
access your SQL Server Express database. Like this, only the WEB instance
can access it. You need to paste the security group id of WEB into the
inbound rule for SQL to do that.

|Winsock "connect" hangs. Visual studio reports possible deadlock|
Since you are encountering the same problem in multiple wrappers that all
ultimately delegate to Winsock, its safe to assume that this is an OS
issue, not a coding issue. Something on your system has hosed your Winsock
installation, or the OS is having networking problems in general,
especially since a simple OS reboot did not clear the issue. Try using
Windows' command-line netsh tool to reset both the TCP and Winsock
subsystems, the command-line ipconfig tool to flush the DNS cache, reboot,
and see if the problem continues.
On the coding side, you should implement a timeout on the connect() to
avoid further deadlocks. There are two ways to do that:
Put the socket into non-blocking mode and then call select() if connect()
returns a WSAEWOULDBLOCk error. If select() times out, close

|Connection error, connect from Visual Studio 2010 to SQL Server 2008 with ip, port|
You need to remove the Integrated Security=SSPI; from your connection
string (that's saying: use Windows Authentication).
Data Source=[ip],1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=[db];User
If you have both the Integrated Security= and an explicit user/password in
your connection string, the integrated security wins - remove it, and you
should be good.
PS: I would strongly recommend to NEVER use the sa account - not even in
development and testing!

It looks like this happens sometimes when the VS execution engine process
is terminated. This was the case for me, since I had terminated the process
manually when the process was not responding. You could check if you have
"vstest.executionengine.exe" process running when you see this error
message. I came across this solution at the MS forum below:
|Visual Studio Find All Not Referenced|
This is not a feature of Visual Studio in the current version. Using Roslyn
you could code and Inspector yourself, but Roslyn doesn't offer one out of
the box either at the moment. The walk-through on Semantic analysis should
get you started. The roslyn forum is a good place to seek help or find
examples, and there's a well monitored tag on StackOverflow as well of
Productivity plugins like Resharper and Code Rush offer this for sure.
There are other similar tools that might have this feature JustCode,
VisualAssist, CodeItRight are likely candidates.
You can also use something like Visual NDepend to detect unused methods.
Their new command Linq to Code features should make it relatively easy to
build a commandline tool that fishes out all unused calls.
|Visual Studio won't find references|
The paths in the project file cannot be the same or the assemblies
referenced have a different version.
It might be worth unloading your project and the editing it to inspect
where it's looking and for what version.
|Find empty methods in visual studio|
In the visual studio find-tool, set it to use Regular Expressions. Use this
expression to find empty methods.
void .*(*)( |(
To find empty Page_Load methods:
void (Page_Load).*(*)( |(
All these approaches would work for "void" methods. For other types, you
can change the expression or further generalize the expression to match any
kind of return type.
|How to find Server on the LAN - Using VB.Net [Visual Studio 2010]|
SQL Server Browser is a windows service that is generally installed with
SQL server. It listens for broadcast messages and provides information on
the installed SQL server instances of the machine.
The .NET Framework has built-in functionality to discover all SQL Servers
in the local network by sending a broadcast message and listening for
responses by SQL Server Browser services. See here.
If you look at the example in the provided link, you will see that what you
get are the hosts and instances of all SQL Servers on the local network.
This can be reused as-is in a connection string. Obviously it won't return
any login credentials; these will have to be hardcoded in your app.

|The system cannot find the file specified. in Visual Studio|
The system cannot find the file specified usually means the build failed
(which it will for your code as you're missing a # infront of include, you
have a stray >> at the end of your cout line and you need std::
infront of cout) but you have the 'run anyway' option checked which means
it runs an executable that doesn't exist. Hit F7 to just do a build and
make sure it says '0 errors' before you try running it.
Code which builds and runs:

I added local database (@jotep comment), but when I try to add that to the

After you add the database file, the Data Source Configuration Wizard opens
to the Choose your Database Objects page, and you can select the tables to
use in the application.
|Connecting to a database in Visual Studio|
Yes, the database can be remotely hosted, I'have this working on my local
machine with a remote MsSql database. Make sure the remote database server
accepts connections from your IP.
I'm pretty sure the MsSql Server Management Studio is only for MsSql, not
MySql. The server name in my case is the IP for the remote MsSql database
server, further you need the login and password for your database. But if
you use your remote MySql, you don't need this tool.
I have no experience with MySql, but it must be possible to use the
database in your Visual Studio project with the correct "connectionstring".
The connectionstring contains the type of the database, where it is
located, login and pasword, etc. You can find the syntax of you
connectionstring here: www.connectionstrings.com/mysql/
|Can't find window "Memory" in Visual Studio 2012|
You can only use the memory window while the debugger is running.
So instead of clicking "Run" try clicking "Step into", or make a breakpoint

Debug -> Windows -> Memory.
|Using Wildcard/Regex for find & replace in Visual Studio|
Using the regex option...

The [^"]+ part uses a negative character class that matches any character
except for a double quote. The + will match it one or more times.

|Cant find the header when I linka .lib in visual studio 2012|
There should be the include file that comes with the library itself, i.e.
the gl/glfw.h (together with a bunch of other gl/gl...h files probably).
This file (these files) needs to be placed somewhere where the compiler can
find it when it encounters an #include statement, i.e. in one of the
directories listed under INCLUDE in the project or compiler settings, e.g.
under Tools / Options / Projects and Settings / VC++ Directories / Include
files (see here)

As far as I know it is not possible without additional software. Some times

sure ReSharper can also do it.
