Could not load type System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpModule’ from assembly ‘System.ServiceModel, Version=3.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=

If you already have .Net 4.0 installed and install a program that brings in an earlier version of .Net, or manually install an earlier version of .Net afterwards, you may get an exception page that matches the title of this article.

This is a simple fix, outlined in detail in MSDN article referenced at the bottom.

Navigate to:

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319 (on a 64-bit computer)

Run:

aspnet_regiis.exe /iru

That’s it!

Parse XML to Dynamic ExpandoObject C# .NET 4.0

The example below uses the LINQ to XML predecessor System.Xml.XmlDocument simply because I still prefer the regex parsing method. It can easily be adapted to use XDocument instead based on your preference. The end resulting output (IEnumerable) is the same.

code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Xml;
using System.Dynamic;
using System.Xml.Linq;

namespace AIS.Common
{
    public class DocParser : IDisposable
    {
        public enum DocTypes
        {
            Xml
        };

        private XmlDocument Document { get; set; }
        //private XDocument Document { get; set; }
        private DocTypes DocType { get; set; }

        //constructor
        /// <summary>
        /// 
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="dt">type of document, currently only supports xml</param>
        /// <param name="f">filename and path</param>
        public DocParser(DocTypes dt, string fp)
        {
            try
            {
                switch (dt)
                {
                    case DocTypes.Xml:
                        DocType = DocTypes.Xml;

                        Document = new XmlDocument();
                        Document.Load(fp);

                        //Document = XDocument.Load(fp);
                        break;
                    default:
                        throw new Exception("Constructor::invalid or unknown doc type specified");
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                throw new Exception("Constructor::Error with document load or doc type.",ex);
            }
        }

        public IEnumerable<dynamic> GetElements(string regex)
        {
            return XmlToExpandoObject(regex);
        }

        private IEnumerable<dynamic> XmlToExpandoObject(string regex)
        {
            dynamic eo = new ExpandoObject();
            var dictionary = eo as IDictionary<string, object>;
            XmlNodeList xnl = Document.SelectNodes(regex);
            foreach (XmlNode xn in xnl)
            {
                foreach (XmlAttribute xa in xn.Attributes)
                {
                    dictionary[xa.Name.ToString()] = xa.Value.Trim();
                    //TrySetAttr(xn.LocalName, xn);
                }

                yield return eo;
            }
        }
}
}

sample xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<robots>
  <robot id="1" age="5" />
  <robot id="2" age="3" />
</people>

usage:

DocParser dp = new DocParser(DocParser.DocTypes.Xml, Server.MapPath("~/xmlfilename.xml")); //can also retrieve xml from external service, etc
        var robots = dp.GetElements("*/robot");
foreach (var r in robots) {
Console.WriteLine("Robot id={0}, age={1}", r.id,r.age); //output. if this is web app you will likely do this differently
}

Silverlight Toolkit Default Path

Quick google search turned up nothing for this, so did a little digging on my own.

This path is useful/necessary if you want to manually utilize anything in the toolkit outside of Hilverlight, such as the themes, which are also compatible with WPF.
