 Getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app
Hello, I just installed UltimateMenu (the entire suite, actually), so I''m a newbie to this toolkit. I'm getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app, using the link provided in the tutorial. I had installed it in it's default location. I'm running Windows XP Prof. SP2.
The complete error-text in IE (6) is:

"The XML page cannot be displayed"
..
A name was started with an invalid character. Error processing resource 'http://localhost/Karamasoft/UltimateMenu/v3.1/Desi...

<%@ Register TagPrefix="mswc" Namespace="Microsoft.Web.UI.WebControls" Assembly="Microsoft.Web..."

Surprise

When I try to run it from within Visual Studio 2005, by selecting it within the designer, it gives an empty window with an hourglass sitting within it interminably.

You need to have IIS installed on your machine in order to run the UltimateMenuDesigner.

Re: Getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app
Actually, I do have IIS installed on my machine. Is there a specific version of IIS that it requires, or is not compatible with?

Have you installed IEWebControls? See http://www.karamasoft.com/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=12.

Re: Getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app

No - thank you for that pointer! Interesting to discover such an item of which I'd been unaware.

I'm concerned, however, about this disclaimer from Microsoft's MSDN page:
 
This product is only compatible with machines running builds of the .NET Framework (1.0.3705.0) and Visual Studio® .NET (7.0.9466).

Does this imply that we shouldn't employ it if we're using VS 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0?


(Incidentally, why am I not able to remove the boldface formatting from that last sentence! I tried toggling the B button, and also clicking on the Remove Formatting btn.)

Incidentally, after installing WebControls and verifying that webctrl_client is indeed now present under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot, I still get that error-message. This has to be something I am doing wrong, because I'm trying it on two different machines on my desk and both are doing this.

Thank you, btw, for your prompt responces!

James Hurst

Re: Getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app
It may be due to where you installed on your machine. You may locate the UltimateMenuDesigner in IIS and try to open by browsing from inside IIS. Are you able to run the C# and VB.NET sample applications?

Re: Getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app

I am using all default installation paths. I did try browsing on UltimateMenuDesigner.aspx from within IIS. On the one box it still yields "The XML page cannot be displayed..", and on the other (my laptop) it simply opens a browser window but sits there showing an hourglass.

Yes, I am able to run C# and VB.NET applications.. I've had VS 2005 on my laptop awhile and have been building Windows forms and ASP.NET apps on it quite a bit.

Re: Getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app
We mean the sample apps under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Karamasoft\UltimateMenu\v3.1\Demos. Can you open the Samples.aspx under CS and VB.NET, and see all samples working propelry. Is it only the UltimateMenuDesigner that doesn't work properly? You may open the Designer app's properties in IIS, and look into the ASP.NET tab. You may change the setting from 2.0 to 1.1 in the dropdown box.

Re: Getting "The XML page cannot be displayed" when trying to run UltimateMenuDesigner as a web app

Ok, well to make a long story short - that worked. I ran the sample C# app, it gave errors, I ran it again and suddenly it stopped failing. Then I found that I could run the UltimateMenuDesigner and lo! actually design a menu![8-|]

However, I am unable to save this menu to an XML file!

It says: Menu XML file cannot be saved. Click here to see FAQ about ASPNET write permissions.

I gave 'ASP.NET Machine Account' full permissions to the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot, and to the Karamasoft directory and everything beneath that. But nothing seems to work.

Where exactly would it be trying to save that file (I gave it no folder-name, just a simple MyMenu.xml)?  And how can I save it?   I assume that IS the way we normally want to save a menu, unless we're saving it within a database???

Thank you,

James
