I don't know if it is just me, but the WPF Demo of the Carousel control (and only that control) crashed for almost every example I tried.  That's a little frustrating. :(  Anyway, I just wanted to alert you to that.

Hi Allen,

It is very strange that the Carousel control crashes. Could you be more specific about the exceptions that you are getting?

Sincerely yours,

I have a Word doc with screenshots, but I don't know how to upload it here.

Hi Allen,

If it isn't too much of a bother, you could try to open a support ticket and attach the file to the ticket. Otherwise, try hitting Ctrl+C when the exception message box pops up, and paste the stack trace here.

Thanks!

Kind regards,

I'm having a similar problem with the GridView part of the demo.  When I try to access any part of the demo, I get a crash:

"An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)"

The connection string in App.config shows that the demo is expecting an instance of SQL Express, but we use SQL Server 2005 here.

I tried running the install script for Northwind on 2005 and pointing the connection string there, but the demo seems to be expecting an extra "Bool" column in some of the tables in the DB.

Are there setup instructions for the demo?  It doesn't run out of the box!

Regards

Chris

For the record, I've just got this to work.

- Install SQL Server Express
- Run the demos using Administrator privileges (we're running Vista)

The demos don't work with ordinary privileges.

A quick web search showed that the .mdf file format is exclusive to SQL Server Express.

Hello Chris Smith,

Thanks for sharing you experience. Allen, does that solve your problem?

I realize we can do better when users do not have SQL Express installed, and we are trying to address the problem. We will most likely be updating our installer with some smarts that configure the database connection strings for the examples.
 
All the best,

No, this does not solve my issue.  I am not trying to download and run the samples.  I am simply trying to run your online demo (at http://www.telerik.com/demos/wpf/).  Additionally, I do not get any .NET output.  Instead the browser just goes "blank" with "an error occurred" and nothing else.  I will open a support ticket just so I can get the screen shots to you.

Thanks
