client.Capabilities.HasFlag error

Mar 20, 2014 at 3:33 PM
I'm using VS2008 and SSIS, which == .net 2.0

I've downloaded netftp-42c0fce0ae2ddfd31e8280955825e99214130303, assuming it to be fit for the purpose, but I'm getting an error on GetChecksum.cs, "client.Capabilities.HasFlag".

What am I doing wrong?
BTW, I do databases for a living, so I'm fairly ignorant in all things VS/.NET.

I'm guessing that's coming from the Examples project. The .HasFlag() method is not supported on enums in .net 2.0, if I recall correctly. You should unload and remove all projects from your solution except System.Net.FtpClient.NET2. Let me know where things stand after that. If you get an error building the code I need the exact Project, File and Line Number.

For what it's worth I don't know how this code will work in SSIS. I've never used it and never even considered it being a place it would used. Not saying it won't work, just don't know how well it will work. You're kinda on your own there.

It should work just fine, once the dll is registerede in the GAC, but for now I am using VS2008 and just testing.

Here is what I've done so far:

1) Downloaded

2) Extracted it to a folder on my local hd

3) Created a new solution in VS

4) Added the project System.Net.FtpClient.NET2

5) Tried to compile but got a bunch of errors, because the Extension files


appear to be missing from the project / zip file.

jptrosclair: Could you please have a look at my previous reply and advise on a course of action?

Download the latest source code from the source code page.

Yes, the extensions source code is missing from the ZIP file. It will be fixed in the when I do another release, if you want to build from source (which you have to for .net 2.0) then download the source tree from the Source Code tab as I stated. That's your only option. I've tested and the .net 2.0 project builds fine and links fine against another .net 2.0 project. If you have any problems with SSIS I can't help; I don't use it and can't test it.
