From the online documentation @ http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/spptsdk/html/tsovOMGdlnsShowASPErrors_SV01108995.asp?frame=true:
Displaying ASP.NET Error Messages
You can disable Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services error messaging so that ASP.NET error messages are displayed instead.
To display ASP.NET error messages, perform the following steps:
- In the Local_Drive:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS folder, change the name of the global.asax file to global.bak.
- In the web.config file in the same folder, change customErrors = "On" to customErrors="Off".
That is the stupid thing when you are working with SharePoint for so long: you forget to reread the documentation for new additions!
The PDC is almost finished, and finally we get the first bits of information on the next version of SharePoint: SharePoint v3. I’m wondering if they actually have a code name for it!
This is a list of resources I found up to now, it’s more for myself to keep track of it..
First of all the downloadable PowerPoint presentations of the sessions at PDC2005: http://commnet1.microsoftpdc.com/content/downloads.aspx. Many interesting SharePoint sessions in there!
