Why, after a week, does my program download suddenly prompt users on shield rights?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I download into a created folder: csidl_common_appdata and the game was working great from a desktop icon for about a week.  Now, suddenly the permission shield sticks to the icon and I wonder if this is because I need to do registry updating while deploying....

send email to all users with certain rights

Hello,  I'm using Sharepoint Designer and Foundation 2010. I am a new admin and appreciate all the help I can get.  Here's what I'm trying to do.   I have several business workflows that call for notifying the users of a particular site. Rather than set the workflow to email specific users or even a group of users, I'd like to set the workflow to email anyone within a certain rights level. For example, I want to notify all users with Contribute level rights whenever a new document is loaded or modified.    Is there a quick way to do this?Beth Singley PBM Graphics

Suddenly, documents are read-only for some users


In our SharePoint 2007 farm, some of our users are suddenly not able to modify Microsoft Office documents. This is NOT a permissions issue - the users clearly have write access to the folders involved.  When they open Office documents, they open read-only.  When they try to save Office documents, they get this error: "Documents in this folder are not available. The folder may have been moved or deleted, or network problems may be preventing a connection to the server."

The problem began around February 21 2010 when we installed the latest Windows updates on client PCs. (We are guessing the updates may have triggered the problem.) Out of 1000 users, only 10-12 have this problem, but it seems to be growing slowly (new cases every few days).

It seems like non-MS-Office documents (say, .txt files) are not affected. They are writable.

The users are running a variety of Windows versions and IE versions. They all have Office 2007, and they all used to be able to write Office documents in SharePoint.

Anybody else experiencing this? Any clues appreciated!

Lost rights for users and admins


After lunch yesterday, I discovered that no one could create any new pages in our MOSS 2007 intranet. Creating sites is working just fine.

All admins, except for one called wss_sys also can't create pages.

The weird part is that when I look at the user rights for the whole site, they are all as before. All the admins have full control and the rest have everything from read to contribute.

Our server is not in English, so finding helpful info is kind of hard.

Had some hope in that the SQL server 2008 was creating the problem, but that one seems to be doing just fine.

Any help is appreciated.

MS SQL Server: Disconnect Users From Database - Kill User Session

Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.

Download and Share Visual Studio Color Schemes

The good news is that Visual Studio allows you to completely customize the editor background and text colors to whatever you want - allowing you to tweak them to create the experience that is "just right" for your eyes and personality. You can then optionally export/import your color scheme preferences to an XML file via the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

Need help redirecting users to personalized page


 Hi, first timer here so be gentle.


I've been able to create a cool little website, it's up and running with users logging in and out, I created roles so my administrative team can see sensitive data that's not available to regular and anonymous users.

Now they would like me to create a page specific to each user.  For instance when user A logs in they are redirected to a page that has information that pertains to user A only (like a list of their benefits/ their remaining vacation time). This page needs to be accessible only to user A. 

I've watched a ton of the videos but have yet to see one that covers this topic, any help would be great!!!





Intranet Users Challenged When Using Windows Integrated Security


We've setup an intranet site using Windows Integrated Security. Its up and running and users can access it. However, they are being challenged with a login dialog for the server when they initially access the site.

Isn't is possible to configure the server so that the users aren't challenged AND are recognized as being already authenticated by Windows? We're trying to go with a seamless experience, whereby all they have to do is login to their machine like normal and then go from there.

Users getting logged out because HttpContext.Current is null


We've  been trying to fix this one for a couple years, and I'm just out of ideas, so any help is really appreciated!

We've got a fairly large, complex web application that uses Forms Authentication to authenticate users.  Throughout the application we store and retrieve information about users in the Session object, and in some cases in cookies.  In a couple places we check for the existence of the context, and if it's null we send the user back to the login page to re-establish the session. 

Just a quick run-down of this web app: C#, .NET 3.5, IIS 6, ASP.NET State Service to manage session

As for the session timer, we use our own home-grown timer, which is basically a client-side timer, which is backed up by a check to the SQL database to see when their last activity was.  This seems to work well for us.  It's not perfect, but it allows us to notify the user before the session times out, and allows us to be certain we're not logging a user out before their 60 minutes of inactivity is up.

What's happening is that certain users are being logged out after just a few minutes.  We've eliminated the timer as a cause and believe what's happening is the HttpContext.Current is null, so the user is logged out.  We do not know why the HttpContext.Current is null, and I underst

Can't get an Icon to show for Desktop shortcut and Program Menu



I've created a SetupWizard, but can't get it to show the Icon for the shortcut on desktop and program menu. The installation goes fine without any errors, the only problem is the icon.

I've made a shortcut of my exe file in the Application Folder and dragged the shortcut to the Desktop folder, then on the shortcut properties, I assigned it an icon picture located in Application Folder.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.
