Windows Update Caused Graphics Acceleration Isssues with .NET 2.0 Applications

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
As of 9-17 2010 our users have been having issues with two .NET Windows applications since getting the Windows Update. After the IT dept did about a day and a half of researching we figured out it was the video cards with acceleration that was causing the issue. Windows would totally freeze when launching any .NET 2.0 applications. After researching and coming to the conclusion that setting the acceleration on the 3rd bar, or about 1/4 way to full acceleration the applications would finally launch. However there are still some areas of the applications that still freeze windows. One of the applications was developed by our development department and another is a third party application we use internally. I have researched online for some others with issues like this and I am not sure what the next step should be. Any help is appreciated.

Disable Hardware Acceleration in Windows 7 Through Regedit (No Entry for Avalon.Graphics)


I attempted to disable hardware acceleration through regedit as described here.  Unfortunately, my system doesn't have an entry for avalon.graphics.  (I do, however, have .NET Framework 4 installed, which I thought was part of avalon.)  Is there any sort of work-around?  Can I simply create my own entry for avalon.graphics?


Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Windows Management Instrumentation: Create WMI Providers to Notify Applications of System Events


Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is based on an industry-wide standard for notifications used to manage objects and devices across a network. By receiving WMI events, an application can be notified of changes to data in WMI itself. This allows the developer to notify the consuming application that certain system configuration data has changed, without the application having to poll WMI continuously for this data. The author presents an explanation of the different types of events in WMI, then goes on to develop an event provider.

WinInet: Enable HTTP Communication in Windows-Based Client Applications


The Internet provides the infrastructure for applications to communicate, and that can include non-UI communication between Win32-based applications. If you think beyond the standard browser usage of HTTP, you can use this protocol to retrieve information from Win32-based applications and save it to a Web server. After explaining how HTTP can be used in this way, this article shows how to use Microsoft SQL Server, ASP, IIS, WinInet, and Visual Basic to implement two examples. The first reports usage data-how often an application is used and by whom. The second monitors application errors and reports error details for use by helpdesk staff or engineers in the debugging process.
