Autocomplete Bundle Known Issues

The project is not supported by this installation

If you do not have Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite or Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Testers installed (ie. you are running Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition), you will get an error:

"The project file '[Path to project file]QuickstartAcceptanceTests\QuickstartAcceptanceTests.csproj' cannot be opened. The project is not supported by this installation."

You can click OK, and then remove the QuickStartsAcceptanceTests project from the solution. You can still look at the Acceptacne Tests by opening the .MHT files that are in the project folder with Internet Explorer or Microsoft Word.

Could not load file or assembly 'AjaxControlToolkit'...

It looks like there was a change between version 10618 and version 10920 of the Ajax Control Toolkit that causes our extensions to fail to load.
You may see this error:
Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'AjaxControlToolkit, Version=1.0.10618.0, 
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=28f01b0e84b6d53e' or one of its dependencies. 
The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

We have checked the obvious things like the "Specific Version" flag on our references....It is set to false for these extensions. We recommend using the 10618 Version of the Ajax Control Toolkit with the Contextual AutoComplete Bundle.

Vista and XP Service Pack 2 Security Settings Block Content

When you download files from the web, Windows XP SP2 and Vista try to protect you from malicious content by "blocking" certain types of files. CHM files (like those we ship our help in) are one of these file types that Windows blocks to proctect you from.
Since you trust content from patterns & practices, you can stop problems (like the CHM files not showing any content) before they happen by doing the following:
  1. Right Click on the ZIP file and choose Properties
  2. On the General tab, click the Unblock button.
  3. Then unzip the bundle.
If you have already unzipped the bundle, you can "fix" the CHM, by "Unblocking" it just like you can unblock a ZIP file.
For more information on this (and another work around), check out Glenn's blog post Tips: Streams, Zones, Vista and Blocked Files in IE
