SQL Server 2016 – JRE Update 51 or higher required

For those SharePoint folks that are installing SQL Server 2016 (CTP) and you get an error regarding the JRE, then you’re installing the Polybase Query Service.

If you remove it from installed features, the error will go away.

Installing SQL 2016 CTP2.2 – Quick Tips

Don’t be worried about the ISO/DVD label being incorrect. While it shows SQL 2014, it really will be SQL 2016!

And before you do any of it, go into Server Manager, Add Features, and add .NET 3.5.  Ugh.

TechEd North America Slides Download Script

So the download script only gets the videos. A quick adjustment and I was able to get the slide decks as well!!!

Here’s the code:

 

[Environment]::CurrentDirectory=(Get-Location -PSProvider FileSystem).ProviderPath
$rss = (new-object net.webclient)

$a = [xml]($rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2014/RSS/slides”))

$a.rss.channel.item | foreach{
$code = $_.comments.split(“/”) | select -last 1

$url = New-Object System.Uri($_.enclosure.url)

$file = $code + “-” + $_.creator + “-” + $_.title.Replace(“:”, “-“).Replace(“?”, “”).Replace(“/”, “-“).Replace(“<“, “”).Replace(“|”, “”).Replace(“‘”, “”).Replace(“`””, “”).Replace(“*”, “”) + “.pptx”
$file = $file.Replace(“â”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“¬”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“€”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“œ”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“‘”, “”);

if (!(test-path $file))
{
$file
$wc = (New-Object System.Net.WebClient)
$wc.DownloadFile($url, $file)
}
}

TechEd North America MP4 Download Script

Here is the download script for TechEd NA. Save it to the directory you want to download the files too. 

I copied this from the SPC14 script, but I modified the URL and the Replace code.

 

[Environment]::CurrentDirectory=(Get-Location -PSProvider FileSystem).ProviderPath
$rss = (new-object net.webclient)

$a = [xml]($rss.downloadstring(“http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2014/RSS/mp4high&#8221;))

$a.rss.channel.item | foreach{
$code = $_.comments.split(“/”) | select -last 1

$url = New-Object System.Uri($_.enclosure.url)

$file = $code + “-” + $_.creator + “-” + $_.title.Replace(“:”, “-“).Replace(“?”, “”).Replace(“/”, “-“).Replace(“<“, “”).Replace(“|”, “”).Replace(“‘”, “”).Replace(“`””, “”).Replace(“*”, “”) + “.mp4”
$file = $file.Replace(“â”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“¬”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“€”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“œ”, “”);
$file = $file.Replace(“‘”, “”);

if (!(test-path $file))
{
$file
$wc = (New-Object System.Net.WebClient)
$wc.DownloadFile($url, $file)
}
}

An error occurred during the compilation of the requested file, or one of its dependencies. ; expected

On one of my current SharePoint/ASP.NET projects, I started receiving this error:
An error occurred during the compilation of the requested file, or one of its dependencies. ; expected.

To solve this, I started removing chunks from my ASPX page until the exception went away. The cause?
It was a typo. I needed to use and forgot the =.

My faulty code:
javascript1

Working code:
javascript2

SharePoint 2013 training for developers

Please note: If you’re building a new VM, be sure to check out the requirements. For instance, you’ll need SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1.

And get used to building new machines for your upgrades. The only way to upgrade to SharePoint 2013 is via content database migration. In other words, you need a new 2013 farm. No more in-place upgrades (for those of you who’ve actually done one).

SharePoint 2013 Beta was just announced

If you haven’t already heard, SharePoint 2013 has been announced. If you want to play with it, log on to msdn and download the img file.

I’m looking forward to using the new application deployment model with Windows Azure.

I wonder if MS will have improved upon the Managed Metadata Service. If not, I may just take it upon myself to do so!
