How to setup a Mobile Browser Emulator in Windows Mobile 6:

In the following tutorial, I cover the process of Setting up Windows Mobile 6 for Mobile Browser Emulation using the Microsoft Device Emulator. This enables a user to experience Windows Mobile 6 on a PC via Emulation without even owning a Windows Mobile 6 product. It can be a great way to test drive Windows Mobile 6 before purchasing a product with it installed. In our case, it allowed us to Emulate Windows Mobile Browsing so that we could optimize our sites for the Mobile viewing audience. Installation and Emulation is simple and fairly straight forward.

Windows 2000 Registry: Latest Features and APIs Provide the Power to Customize and Extend Your Apps


The Windows registry as it is recognized today first appeared in Windows 95. Its introduction simplified the storage of initialization information and made that data more secure. This article covers the history of the registry, the form it took in the early days, and its current incarnation in Windows 2000. Practical tips for managing data in the registry are outlined, along with descriptions of special keys, functions, and file types. Manipulation of the registry to customize both application behavior and certain features in Windows is discussed. Also covered are future directions of the registry, including the use of XML to store registry information in a hierarchical fashion.

Windows 7 64bit Registry access using x86 assembly

Hi guys, I have an assembly that is complied in x86 release mode. The assembly tries to access  a particular registry key in Win7 the key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion  -> ProductID(tried to read this value) As the assembly is in x86 it tries to look for the key in SysWow64 node HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion -> ProductID(tried to read this value) When i went through the registry i found that the string "ProductID" is missing (!) ..

Changing Windows Administrator account name

I am planning on changing the name of the administrator account in Windows for security purposes.  I plan to follow kb 816109 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816109/en-us) to use Group Policy to do this (we are running W2003 on servers).  My question is, will this affect anything in regards to SQL.  I have SQL2005 on a member server and normally use Windows authentication for Sql SMS and SQL services.  I can see username is filled in as 'domain/administrator' and is greyed out so it cannot be changed...if the administrator account is renamed through group policy, will Windows authentication still work with the new login name or will it only work with account name 'Administrator'?

I have written a service, that needs to interact with the users desktop and execute a .exe file. Since there is not settings to set this property, I have written the code to change the registry value of this service. But my issue it when I do this, it does not execute the exe file. If I manually go to the properties and check "Allow service to interact with desktop" then I could see the exe is running. When I do it from the code exe runs in the background. Could any one let me know how to fix this? Any help is greatly appreciated. Following is my code:

Dim serviceName As String = "PortalReportScanner"
    Dim key As RegistryKey = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\" & serviceName & "\", True)

    If key IsNot Nothing Then
      ' get the value of the Type key.
