February 24, 2008


Recently I won early bird prize at Heroes Happen Here, also as a prize money I earned MSDN Subscription from Microsoft.

I am very excited that I got my first package of MSDN subscription. The pack  contained VS2008 Professional Edition DVD and Windows Vista Ultimate Edition!

I am obviously excited!

ASP.NET State Server error!

February 20, 2008

After a full day work, I deployed my project which is an mobile web application, on to a testing server yesterday. The application is built using .net framework 1.1.

After deployment, I hit the URL in the web browser, and to my shock got the below error.


Thankfully, the error stated how to resolve error “Please ensure that the ASP.NET State service is started…”. I hit services.msc from run menu and yes, ASP.NET State Service was not running!. I started it, and refreshed the URL, the page appeared!

Good that I fixed the problem immediately, thanks to for conveying error neatly this time!
