[NEW] Media Center Addin x64: Microsoft.MediaCenter.GuideSubscribed

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Sorry, have to post this thread again, because the original thread isn't accessibly anymore.


I'm working on a Media Center Addin with the following references:
Microsoft.MediaCenter.Store (mcstore.dll)
Microsoft.MediaCenter.Guide (mcepg.dll)

I can access the ObjectStore (mcepg2-0.db),the Lineup and ScheduleEntry with:
ScheduleEntry e = channel.Service.GetScheduleEntryAt(DateTime.Now);

But this is working on x86 Windows only. If I run the project on an x64 machine ScheduleEntries are always return a NullRefrenceException. I had build the project as x86, x64 or Any. All code is working fine then, but ScheduleEntries are always return a NullRefrenceException on x64 machine.

channel and Service are != null, that's not the reason for the NullReferenceException

Any ideas?

Exception System.NullReferenceException: Der Objektverweis wurde nicht auf eine Objektinstanz festgelegt.

Server stack trace:

SQL EXPRESS 2008 replication issue with sync media center on windows 7


Dear all,

I am not able to configure the system in order to make it solve merge conflicts interactively (that is with the help of the user).

The configuration is the following one:

PC-A: sql server 2008. With one the DB "myDB" published for replication.

PC-B: sql server 2008 r2 express. With two replicas of "myDB" on the same instance of sql express: "myDB1Replica" and "myDB2Replica"

The two replicas simulate two users that change the content of the same record so that I can test how the system behaves in case of conflicts.

Everything runs smoothly if "Resolve conflicts automatically" is set... but I get this error message when "Resolve conflicts interactively (only applies to articles that support interactive resolution)" is selected.

Error: The merge process failed to get correct information about the Interactive Resolver component from the registry. Verify that the registry exists and that the path is correct.

Of course this has been enabled on the article (from PC-A on sql server) and on the subscription (from both PC-B sql express and syncro center) as well.


I have been searching everywhere and found nothing! Any help would be really appreciated! I really need to run the interactive conflict resolution

Microsoft AJAX CDN

Content delivery networks (CDNs) are composed of "edge cache" servers that are strategically placed around the world at key Internet network points. These "edge cache" servers can be used to cache and deliver all types of content - including images, videos, CSS and JavaScript files.

Using a CDN can significantly improve a website's end-user performance, since it enables browsers to more quickly retrieve and download content. For example, instead of having a browser request for an image traverse all the way across the Internet to your web server to download, a CDN can instead serve the request directly from a nearby "edge cache" server that might only be a single network hop away from your customer (making it return much faster - which makes your pages load quicker).

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:

CLR Integration With Microsoft SQL Server

Transact-SQL provides as much flexibility as possible but, because it is not a real programming language, it has some shortcomings about many issues (memory management, exception handling, debugging, file processing (or streaming), object-orientation (classes), or thread management). Transact-SQL also lacks features of normal libraries (arrays, collections, serialization, expressions, or string manipulations, etc).

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Building Layered Web Applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 - Part 1

"Building Layered Web Applications" that shows you how to build N-Layer applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. These articles teach you how to design, build and use custom business objects in your web application. The target audience for this series are developers that are ready to make the switch from using SqlDataSource controls to ObjectDataSource controls with custom business objects. Experience with ASP.NET 2 and C# is necessary while some knowledge about object oriented design certainly helps. The design I am going to show you in these articles is a simplified version of a design you would use in a real world application. It doesn't feature all the necessary functionality your application needs, but instead focuses on the underlying concepts.

Microsoft StyleCop: Source Code Analyzer for C#

StyleCop is similar in many ways to Microsoft Code Analysis (specifically FxCop), but there are some important distinctions. FxCop performs its analysis on compiled binaries, while StyleCop analyzes the source code directly. For this reason, FxCop focuses more on the design of the code, while StyleCop focuses on layout, readability and documentation. Most of that information is stripped away during the compilation process, and thus cannot be analyzed by FxCop.

Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Online is a collection of Web-based tools and technologies built on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 that help you store, share, and manage digital information within your company.

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.



Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.
