Issues using VS 2012

Feb 22, 2013 at 5:43 PM
Hi there,

I am using VS 2012 to work with WAF (I am trying to find a suitable MDI framework for a project.) To that extent, I have run into a couple of hiccups.

1) The Architecture project is not supported out of the box by VS 2012. I don't have a solution for this yet, but that is discussed in a separate thread. At this time, this does not seem to affect the overall funcationality of the framework or sample applications.

2) VS 2012 comes with the new SQL compact 4.0. If you try to run the application, you will most likely get errors as it is trying to create a 3.5 version of the database. Here is a link to some code that will convert it to 4.0, after which, it should work: http://kitsula.com/Article/Tool-to-upgrade-SQL-CE-database-to-SQL-Server-Compact-4.0. Note that the .sdf file it creates is no tthe one you find in the sample folders, but is actually created in whatever:

Path.Combine(Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData), ApplicationInfo.Company, ApplicationInfo.ProductName)

is on your computer.

Anyway, that will get you past any errors you will have initially. If I find more VS 2012 related issues, I will reply to this thread.
