Altium Infrastructure Server vs Microsoft SQL Server 2012

Sharing the knowledge.

Need to install Altium Infrastructure Server v1.0.1.61 onto Windows 10.

Followed the Altium Infrastructure Server documentation and when I attempted to log into the web interface I got an error dialog:

Something went wrong.
The type initializer for 'ExtentPlaceholderCreator' threw an exception.

To fix this changed the web.config in both the IDS and EDS directory. Look for the <runtime> section below

<assemblyBinding xmlns=“urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1”>

Add the following

<assemblyIdentity name=“Microsoft.SqlServer.Types” publicKeyToken=“89845dcd8080cc91” />
<bindingRedirect oldVersion=“" newVersion=“” />

This resolved the problem for me.

Hosting git repository on Windows Server with minimal 3rd party packages

I need to have a git repository hosted on a Windows Server. Go figure this would be simple to do. 

It was a political struggle to get git installed in my work environment. Installing out of the box solutions like scm-manager is not going to happen.

Here is the solution I cobbled together from multiple sources on the Internet.

On my workstation

  • $ git clone --bare chrome-app.git clone-chrome-app.git
  • Copy  clone-chrome-app.git to the Windows Server 

On the Windows Server 

  • $ cd /path/to/chrome-app.git
  • $ git init --bare --shared

On the Windows Server

  • $ cd /path/to/chrome-app.git
  • $ git daemon --base-path=. --export-all --reuseaddr --informative-errors —verbose --enable=receive-pack


Back on my workstation

  • $ git ls-remote git://IP.of.Windows.Server/chrome-app
  • $ git remote add windows  git://IP.of.Windows.Server/chrome-app.git

Is this thing still on?

6 years since the last post!

Does this still work?
