InteropServices.COMException reading DirectoryEntry

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
 

I am trying to identify information in ActiveDirectory concerning the local IIS server.   In the WinXP x32 world I have been starting with:

System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry IIS = new System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry("IIS://localhost/W3Svc/1/Root");

Howeve in the Win7 x64 world, I get an COMException when I try to access any properties of the DirectoryEntry object.

I am running as an administrator, so I doubt that it is a permission issue.   I also tried opening the DirectoryEntry("BadEntry") and get the same results.   I therefore suspect that the entry name is different in the Win7 x64 world.

What is the correct path to the default website in the Win7 x64 world?

Thx

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800A03EC): Microsoft Excel cannot open or save any mo

  

Hello good people, 

I have this beast as an error. Did my research and found some posts here as well but did not do any good for me. 

Here is what I did. I had an error regarding issue rights with COM objects so I gave access rights under component services for Microsoft Excel application now I am getting this error. 

Here is some information regarding this

1. Gave rights to ASPNET and network service to my web app directory to try to fix this error. 

2. The exact same process works on my Windows 2003 server and my Windows 7 development machine. I am trying to get this going on a different windows 2003 machine that is outside of our domain.

3. Developing on windows 7 64 bit with office 2010 installed. Also excel 2010 is installed on my Web server

4. Here is the code that is causing the error: The last line is causing the error.:

GC.Collect();
            MyXl = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application();
            MyXl.Visible = false;
            
            MyWb = (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel._Workbook)(MyXl.Workbooks.Add(Missing.Value));
            int test = 0; 
            MySheet = (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel._Worksheet)MyXl.ActiveSheet;
            if (reader.HasRows)
            {
                int InRow = 2;

FaxComExLib InteropServices.COMException (0x800710D8): Operation failed

  
Hi! I've developed an application that takes a PDF document and converts it to a TIFF file using GhostScript library. This process is done correctly. I then setup a fax connection using FaxComExLib.FaxServerClass to send that TIFF file through fax. My settings (developing/testing environment) are as follows: * Servers are in a domain (baker.street)  - DC containing AD | name: holmes  - Processing server | name: adler  - Fax Server | name: watson * I have a special account BAKERSTREET\Fax The application is running as a Windows Service as user BAKERSTREET\Fax. This services receives Events from a MSMQ queue that has the processing information. (again, this is done correctly). The file is transformed an then an attempt to send the fax is done. Here comes the problem: Scenario 1: * Running account: BAKERSTREET\Fax * Fax Server: \\watson * Result: InteropServices.COMException (0x800710D8): Operation failed               The fax is not sent to the fax server. Scenario 2: * Running account: BAKERSTREET\Fax * Server Fax: \\adler (localhost; this is the computer where the process runs) * Result: The fax is sent successfully to the Outbox Queue in the Fax Server. Scenario 3: * Running account: BAKERSTREET\Administrator (domain administrator account) * Fax Server: \\watson * Result: As shocking as this may

A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException'

  

After calling a very simple WCF Service I bind the result an Observable Collection of Countries to WPF ComboBox, in second ComboBox of cities I displayed the filtered cities based on the selected country. It works fine the first time but when I select another country it takes lots of time to display, the Visual Studio 2010 output displays this like 50 times:

A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in mscorlib.dll

Intereting to point out that it only happens if I try to open the ComboBox and not if if navigate through code doing something like SelectedIndex=2 . It does not happen as well if instead of the ComboBox I use a ListBox or TreeView.

Some extra details.... the real exception detail is:

An event was unable to invoke any of the subscribers (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040201)

Please help with this bug....

I just setup a list. I added a few items to it and then added my web part to the site.

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

  
Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink

XML Reading and Writing

  
We learned to process XML files using the Document Object Model as implemented by the XmlDocument class. To go further and make XML friendlier, the .NET Framework provides many other classes for different purposes, allowing you to create and manage nodes from custom .NET classes.
Besides the XmlDocument and the derived classes of XmlNode, the .NET Framework provides the XmlTextWriter class, which is derived from XmlWriter. The XmlTextWriter class works in a top-down approach to create, or deal with, the contents of an XML file. This class writes an XML node and moves down without referring

reading values from config files in NUnit tests

  

One of my NUnit tests has to read in some values from config files.  In my main application this process works perfectly well, however when I run the unit test, the code that reads in the values from the config files doesnt read anything in.  Ive tried putting app.config in my unit test project (I even tried web.config) but nothing seems to work.  Are there any special steps involved when reading from config files in an nunit test ?

Maximum memory for string ? . System.MemoryOutOfException Occurs when reading the Content of the fil

  

Hi,

I have a C++ code which reads a file [vtk file - its similar to text file only]. and try to store it in string.

here's the code:

String^ ParallelProjectionRenderer::GetVolumeDataAsString(String^ FileName)

{
    vtkSmartPointer<vtkDataSetWriter> sWriter = vtkSmartPointer<vtkDataSetWriter>::New();

    String^ FileName = "D:\\Users\\...";

    char * sptName = static_cast<char *>(Marshal::StringToHGlobalAnsi(FileName).ToPointer());

    sWriter->SetFileName(sptName);

    sWriter->Register(nullptr);

    sWriter->SetInput(this->dataSource);

    sWriter->SetFileTypeToASCII();

    sWriter->Write();

    sWriter->Delete();

    String^ result= File::ReadAllText(FileName);   [it breaks here with system.memoryoutofexception when the file size is huge]

    return result;

}

this code executes fine when the file size is less than 8mb.

I wanted to know whats the maximum memory allocated to the string.


As a workaround i skipped reading out in C++ code. and i tried to read the file contents in asp.net C# code and stor
