Application running in WinXP with a Windows 7 theme

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
I have an application that runs fine on all OS' except when I run it on Windows XP with a Windows 7 theme running (runs fine with standard XP theme).  I was wondering if anyone has come across this issue before and/or has an idea on the cause and solution to it.  Thanks.   Dion

Setting theme to windows application

Hi I am having Vista Machine & I am developing windows application with VS2008. When i run my application it is showing the current windows theme by default. I want to apply XP classic theme to it. Can you please suggest me how to set my winform as well as control style to XP classic theme. Means after developing my winform application on vista if i run that application on any of the Windows OS it will show me XP theme not the default theme of that operating system. Is there any way for doing the same ? If yes please share it. Thanks, Devendra

How to get message from Windows to actually running application in WPF?


I spend around few hours to find something about my issue on Internet. But I have no idea what to write in Google... :/
So I thought maybe it will be better to write here.
  I wrote an application which can save and open it own files. Then I added special registry key and now when I double-click on a file associated with my application, Windows (OS) opens my application and load the file. Most application work like this and thats OK.
But what I want to do?
I want my application to be opened just once. So when I double-click on a file the application will start running and load the first file. But when I double-click on second file (during my application is already running) windows will open second application. And I want to load this second file to already running application. What should I do??

PS - I am writing WPF application in Visual 2010 with .Net4.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

SqlServer - Windows Account to install Application from Gallery


Referring to this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/download-and-install-an-asp-net-application

I selected umbraco cms and got this wizard:

I already have Standard Sql Server 2005 on my machine which I wanted to us for above DB and not SqlExpress.

I did not remember "sa" account pwd nor I use explicitly any account to connect to my Sqlserver. I use Windows Authentication account i.e implicit authentication. So I created new account and gave all rights and used it in the above wizard and was able to install the database after some struggle.

My question is: What if I want to use my Windows Account to install the database above? Why the wizard don't have any option to use Windows Integrated Authentication?

Note: I can create the DB with external user I created, just looking specifics for using Windows Authentication for above installation.

Cloud Storage: Fueling Your Application's Engine with Windows Azure Storage


Yes, you can run background processes in the cloud. Kevin Hoffman and Nate Dudek use a shopping cart example to demonstrate how to build an application engine as well as implement asynchronous messaging and processing using Azure Storage.

Windows Forms: Give Your .NET-based Application a Fast and Responsive UI with Multiple Threads


If your application performs any non-UI processing on the thread that controls the user interface, it may make the app seem slow and sluggish, frustrating users. But writing multithreaded apps for Windows has long been restricted to C++ developers. Now with the .NET Framework, you can take advantage of multiple threads in C# to control the flow of instructions in your programs and isolate the UI thread for a fast and snappy user interface. This article shows you how. Also, it discusses the pitfalls of multiple threads and presents a framework for safe concurrent thread execution.

Designer crashes sometimes because application path becomes C:\Windows\system32

Sometimes VS crashes as it seems to execute the WPF designer in its directories or C:\Windows\system32. Sometimes it works fine as we can preview saved settings in the Designer. I have set application path as follows : ConfigFile = Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, "mixer.ser");<br/> When VS crashes I accept to debug it, the exception is : {"Access to the path 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\\Common7\\IDE\\mixer.ser' is denied."}    System.Exception {System.UnauthorizedAccessException} ... or c:\windows\system32 Any ideas on how to fix this ?   Thank you !
