Re: running mozoportal in visual studio,

the latest source code requires VS 2013 and .NET 4.5

we no longer support 3.5 or 4.0 though it "may" be possible for an expert to produce a build for those frameworks with some difficulty, it definitely is not something for a beginner to try. we offer no support for that.

with .net 4.5 and VS 2013 update 4 you would build the mojoportal.sln, set a connection string then run the mojoPortal.Web project

Re: running mozoportal in visual studio,

dear sir as you said the latest source code requires VS 2013 and .NET 4.5

but i downloaded this project from codeplex it doesnot contain any sln file with 4.5 labelled 

readme.txt contains this line..

===================================================

Using the mojoPortal Source Code requires Visual Studio 2010. If you don't have Visual Studio 2010, you may qualify to get it free via the Microsoft Website Spark program http://www.microsoft.com/web/websitespark/

Although we recommmend for developers to use the source code, we do not recommend for anyone to modify the mojoPortal source code. All of your custom code should be in your own custom projects. As soon as you modify the mojoPortal code, you will be cutting  yourself off from future improvements and bug fixes and it will be diffiuclt or impossible to upgrade without losing your modifications.
http://www.mojoportal.com/avoid-forking-the-code.aspx

Note that we are targeting the .NET 4.0 runtime. We still support 3.5 .NET, to use 3.5 .NET use one of the solution files for 3.5 .NET like mojoportal.net35.sln to work in 3.5. Note that the Web/Web.config file is configured for .NET 4, so you also will need to copy the contents of the Web.net35.config file into Web.config to use .NET 3.5. For more information see 
http://www.mojoportal.com/the-net-4-transition-plan-for-mojoportal.aspx

==============================================================

please guide me how can i get latest project for visulal studio 2013 and .net 4.5

thank you.

Re: running mozoportal in visual studio,

those packages on codeplex are pre-compiled deployment ready packages, they contain no C# source code and are not intended for use in VS.

sorry, the readme file it is way out of date.

To get the source code you need to use TortoiseHG

Re: running mozoportal in visual studio,

i followed step on site but i think still there's a problem

I downloaded tortoisehg from http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/download/ and

then created an new folder mj

then cloned from source url https://hg.codeplex.com/mojoportal this 

step filled folder mj with files see image below:-

http://m.uploadedit.com/ba3a/142502326239.jpg

then tortoisehg went from maximixed one see image:-http://m.uploadedit.com/ba3a/1425023130125.jpg

i think this is old project as there is no .net4.5 .sln file its 4.0 sln .
i previously posted some lines from readme.txt from same project you said it was old readme 
can you tell is it latest or old or will it support 4.5.net.

if its old then can you tell where i did wrong and how can i correct it?
and thank you so much for keeping up this thread.

Re: running mozoportal in visual studio,

you are making false assumptions about file names, I told you before mojoportal.sln it requires .net 4.5
