Do I even need this program?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I'm sorry for such a silly question, but at one time when I'd run MS update I'd download optional downloads, some of them because I wanted to learn programing and thought I might need it, instead of waiting until I actually did. As a result I have a number of Microsoft programs and such installed that I don't know if I need or not. One being SQL server 2005 compact edition, several versions of .Net Framework (from upgrading) and MS compression pack 1.0 for Windows XP, I think I need the last one because I think it was an automatic update. I know this isn't the correct forum for these other installs but I thought someone may know so I didn't have to find a forum for each one of them, thanks so much for any help.

Can't get an Icon to show for Desktop shortcut and Program Menu



I've created a SetupWizard, but can't get it to show the Icon for the shortcut on desktop and program menu. The installation goes fine without any errors, the only problem is the icon.

I've made a shortcut of my exe file in the Application Folder and dragged the shortcut to the Desktop folder, then on the shortcut properties, I assigned it an icon picture located in Application Folder.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.


Access to report file denied. Another program may be using it.


Migrated from Windows 2000 ASP.NET 1.1 to Windows 2003, ASP.NET 2.0 and had this error. All the forums/MSDN/Blogs says to give Read/Write Access to C:\Windows\Temp folder. Why should we give Full Access to some folder in Production server?? In windows 2000, ASP.NET 2.0 development machine, no files are created when we run crystal reports from aspx pages. Then why in Windows 2003 servers, we need to give rights to temp folder?? It is a simple code


And the code is not storing anything on the disk. Then why should it store the GUID.rpt file in Temp file in Windows 2003 server?? Any alternative is there not to store anything on the disk when Crystal Reports are opened in aspx page??


Editor's Note: Does Your Program Smell Like Bacon?


When building your program, are you content with "good enough"? If so, your expectations are fatally low.

Design: Inspect and Optimize Your Program's Memory Usage with the .NET Profiler API


Developers using .NET often make memory leak tracking a low priority because the common language runtime takes care of garbage collection. What few developers realize, however, is that their objects' lifespans, along with their size and what other objects have been instantiated, all affect how they are cleaned up. Depending on the particular circumstances, these combinations can negatively affect performance, especially over the lifetime of an application. This article presents a way for developers to see memory usage and understand garbage collection using the .NET Profiler API. Along the way, a sample application to demonstrate these principles is built.

Visual FoxPro 7.0: Program Your Data with Powerful New COM, XML, and Web Services Support


Visual FoxPro 7.0 represents a significant improvement over version 6.0. There are many new features designed to support COM, XML, and Web Services. Now COM servers built with Visual FoxPro are more flexible and robust thanks to strong typing and the ability to implement interfaces from other type libraries. IDE features like the new object browser combine convenience and efficiency, and other language features such as event handlers and early binding to COM objects increase performance. Lastly, an enhanced session class plus several new XML functions make Visual FoxPro a great choice for Web application development.

Fax Services: Send Any Printable File From Your Program in Windows 2000


All versions of Windows 2000 have fax services built in, so sending faxes manually is as easy as setting fax options from the control panel. Faxes can also be sent programmatically in Windows 2000 using either COM Automation or the standard C API. The example in this article uses COM Automation with Visual Basic and MFC to programmatically manage faxing. The objects used for fax transmission, such as the FaxServer and FaxDoc objects, as well as their properties and methods, are explained. Because faxing of files you can't print can be problematic, this process is explained. Finally, this article implements a fax routing extension-a plug-in that exports standard functions and implements routing methods for processing received faxes.

How can I have my program access another program that is running on the same computer?

We use 5 different applications at work. There is a lot of copying and pasting and going back and forth between applications. It can be very draining. The main program that I want to interface with is a ticketing application. It was not designed to be manipulated by another program, only a person. One way would be to write a program which moves the mouse around and types things into the fields and navigates between the different windows. But the problem with that is the user (me) would not have the screen/mouse/keyboard free while this was happening as the program would be using it. How would you go about just getting the data straight from memory? If that is not an option could I move the program off screen and manipulate it there? I don't know what language the program was written in. Maybe I could decompile it? Is there a good way to monitor the information it sends across the network? If so I could just have my program make the same requests and then completely bypass the current program.   Do you have any ideas?
