I need to :
- setup Sharepoint 2010 development environment using Virtual Box.
- Setup SSRS 2008 R2 for reporting services.
I I have gone through several blogs and post but am not able to understand a clear sequence of what am I supposed to do. Please Please help me setup my machine in a way I can use it for my personal use and also use it for Sharepoint development.
Okay this is making me crazy...I am on a virtual server and this will not install...anyone have the solution.
I am developing a WPF 4.0 application to be deployed on a Windows 7 Touch machine.
During initial testing, I observed that TextBox control supports the virtual (on-screen) keyboard by default. However, the PasswordBox control does not seem to support the virtual keyboard.
I could not find any properties on PasswordBox to enable the virtual keyboard. Also, there isn't any guidance available online. For now, I assume that virtual keyboard has been disabled for security reasons.
Does the PasswordBox control support the virtual keyboard? If yes, please let me know the details.
Appreciate your time,
Hi, I just want to make sure that we setup this server the best way possible as we are moving from a previous box where
performance was affected mainly because of partitioning and SQL memory optimizations.
Dell PowerEdge R710
Windows 2008R2 64bits is installed on Volume 1.
- I would like to know what suggestions you might have for the Initialization of the other 2 volumes (MBR or GPT).
- Any other settings like partition align = 64
- Memory Settings at the OS level.
- Memory Settings on SQL.
- Any other recommendations.
On my old labtop (windows xp) I was using a SharePoint 2007 + Windows 2003 virtual machine (vhd)
(I was using the free Microsoft Virtual PC to use it) .But my labtop was very slow so I bought a new machine which has Windows 7 professional 64 bit.So how could I use my old vhd? I heard Virtual pc doesn't work on 64 bit windows.
After some search in google I read about VMWare Server which is free.I read v1 is better than v2.But I have no idea about it and didn't use it before is it safe?
Hi I have an Instance of Sql2008 running on Windows 2008R2. That configuration is a guest machine on a Host Windows 2008 R2 STD.
Twice daily noon and 6PM, I run a baremetal restore backup of the host to it's dedicated internal drive. This includes all the vhds for the VMs.
No Windows backup is configured on the VM's
The SQL VM has scripted backup database and backup log jobs that are scheduled.
The backup database job runs once daily in the evening. The problem is the HOST level backup is causing the backup library of the SQL server to identify the noon VM VSS snapshot as a backup. This "injection" means if I want to recover a full backup
then a tlog(1...n) sequence I can do it fine from script but I don't think I can do it from the SQL Management Studio, because the noon backup database command was issued by the host and used the VSS writer to put that on the imaging(hidden) drive.
I am working with a desktop application developed in C#. A form in this application lists all files/folders from the computer drives. Users can drag/drop files/folders between the windows explorer and this form. The users can also drag files
from this form (that contains virtual files list in a dot net listview control) onto [Adobe Actobat Professional] main window and the Adobe Acrobat opens the file in it properly.
But when I the users drag files from the form and drop them on the [Combine Files] window of adobe professional, it shows a cross (X) mouse icon that defines that the dragged items cannot be dropped on this window (Combine Files form).
The possible reason what I thin
