No sound when playing MPEG video in MediaElement

Hi, I am writing a multimedia centre using the WPF MediaElement control, the project is very mature and going really well. However I get no audio when my player plays a .MPG file. I have tried installing lots of different codec packages on my test machine but to no avail. The same files have audio when loaded in WMP but not in my WPF application. I am developing on an XP machine and on that I get sound, but on my target machine, Windows 7, no sound! Other formats such as AVI etc do not have this problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Disposing when hower AND CTRL is activated AND left mouse button is pressed ????


I want to let the user get rid of some designelements (PictureBoxes) on a form very fast.

This code can do it IF the user holds down the CTRL-key AND moves the mouse cursor over the designelements.

    private void signal_MouseHover(object sender, EventArgs e)
      Cursor.Current = Cursors.Hand;
      if (commonThings.ctrlActivated)

I have two problems witch I can't solve:

1) I want to secure wrong deleting of designelements by ALSO test that the LEFT-mouse key is pressed togather with CTRL (there is no "buttons" with the e !)

2) the Hover-event is a little delayed, so the deleting is in fact a little slow

How can this be done ?

SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() returns -1 when doing Insert / Update / Delete

Sometimes you end up with a return value of -1 when using the SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery method.

Why is that?

Well, the ExecuteNonQuery method is there for statements for changing data, ie. DELETE / UPDATE /INSERT, and the returned value are the number of rows affected by that statement.

When checking the documentation we can see that there are some conditions that return -1.

For UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements, the return value is the number of rows affected by the command.

When a trigger exists on a table being inserted or updated, the return value includes the number of rows affected by both the insert or update operation and the number of

rows affected by the trigger or triggers. For all other types of statements, the return value is -1. If a rollback occurs, the return value is also -1.
