Mapguide Enterprise 2011 on Windows Server 2003 SP2

I don't see the list of FDOs needed to establish a data connectiown when I use Mapguide Studio 2011 to connect to MGE 2011 installed on windows server 2003 sp2. I uninstalled and reinstalled .Net 2.0 2.0 SP1, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 but no cigar

 

The list does appear if I connect to MGE 2011 installed on windows server 2008 R2..

 

I have had MGE 2009 running on Windows Server 2003 without a problem but now I need to migrate to 2011 without the need for w2k8.

 

Is there a fix around it?

53 views (which means a lot of people have the same problem) but no replies. Gee thank you Autodesk.

 

I'm looking forward to purchasing MGE 2012. <roll eyes>

I managed to find a fix that barely suits my needs. Autodesk screwed up really bad on this one by including some FDO provider binaries not compiled for windows server 2003.

 

I edited the providers.xml and kept the Oracle, the MS SQL and Raster providers only, restarted the Mapguide server and it worked.  I can now now see at least the three providers that my company mostly uses. The SHP provider is broken (others might be too, I didn't test them). If you attempt to load SHP files, Mapguide Studio will give you the error message "The OSGeo.SDF provider provider is not supported".

 

I tried to use the SHP FDO provider from MGE2009 but it didn't work either.

 

Shame on you Autodesk. Shame on you.

Final update:

 

I finally got Mapguide Studio to show all the providers I need by modifying the providers.xml file and setting the providers in the following order:

 

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>

Restarted MGE2011. Now the list is displayed correctly in Mapguide Studio.
