One of my team mate faced this issue few days back, After
installing SharePoint 2010 when he tried to open central admin he got blank page. We checked for all app pools and services but everything were fine,
But after some googling we found solution that: He forgotten to tick the Windows Authentication box when
installing the IIS7 features. So: Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn
Windows features on or off >Internet Information Services > World Wide
Web Services > Security >tick ‘Windows Authentication’
After doing this our central admin was working as expected
Event ReceiversWorkflows Can execute either
before or after the operation Always executes
after the operation Can cancel the
operation Cannot cancel the
operation as the item will have already been created Cannot be launched
manually by the user Can be started
manually by the user Not designed for
user interaction Specifically
designed for user interaction Can execute in
response to many different actions, including deletes Can only execute in
response to one of four events – Manual, an item being created, an item being
edited, and an item being submitted for approval Must be created in
Visual Studio Can be created with
Visual Studio, Visio or SharePoint Designer
Workflows are mostly used for business process implementation
and Event receivers are mostly used for one time activity based on trigger.
According to lot of articles on internet Event handler and
Event Receiver are same. In SP2003 it was called as event handler and SP2010 it
is called as Event Receiver.
But as per my understanding individual overridden method are
called Event Handler and whole class is called Event receiver.
Comment out your thoughts on this.
