Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I'm trying to figure out what versions of .NET are supplied by default in different versions of Windows. I can't find this information in one place, but so far I have:

Win XP: ?
WinXP SP1: ?
WinXP SP2: ?
WinXP SP3: ?
Win Vista: .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.0
Win Vista SP1: ?
Win 7: .NET 3.5 SP1 (includes .NET 2.0 SP1 and 3.0 SP2)

Can anyone extend this list or tell me where to find this information?

Mobility: Add Keyboard Support to Compact Framework Apps by Trapping Windows Messages


The Compact Framework Control class doesn't provide direct access to Windows messages. However, with P/Invoke, a few lines of native code, and the Compact Framework MessageWindow class, it's still possible to access underlying Windows messages. This can be used to work around any .NET Framework features, including keyboard support, that are not included in the Compact Framework.

Rectangular Default Windows Button

Hi i am messing a bit with styles. I think the following code should make the normal "Button" rectangular, but on my Windows 7 machine only the left side of the button. The blue focus rectangle never changes its rounded corners. <Button> <Button.Resources> <Style TargetType="theme:ButtonChrome"> <Setter Property="RoundCorners" Value="False" /> </Style> </Button.Resources> Rectgangle Button </Button>  I used ' xmlns:theme="clr-namespace:Microsoft.Windows.Themes;assembly=PresentationFramework.Aero" '.

SpellCheck (System.Windows.Controls) support for other Languages

Hi, I have a question about SpellCheck class. I use .NET 4.0 and I know that 4 languages are supported. I need to write an easy editor with spell check functionality. It will need to support Dutch language. Depending on when Dutch Language will be supported, the current project will go in different directions. Could you provide me any information about when it is going to happen (if it is going to happen)? With kind regards, Michal Bilinski, Meteo Consult, the Netherlands.

How to set the default culture Info for all thread of an application independant from the Windows UI


A classic 'european' topic?

I am working with Windows7Pro in German, and VS2010 in English. I whish I had all exception handling in english.
Thus, I set the explicly the current culture to english:
 var culture = new CultureInfo("en-us");
 Application.CurrentCulture = culture;
        Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = culture;
        Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = culture;

But I do still have some exception in German, because 'by design', .NET Framework considers the Windows UI language as default culture when a new thread in created (e.g. by GUI controls), as I read here http://www.dotnetmonster.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/winform/14177/setting-culture-of-threads

What is the motivation for such a design? It has always been a problem for us in Europe working with multi languages: it is quite difficult to ensure the software is working properly whereever it is rolled out.
Is there a way to define the default culture of all children threads?

Feedback requested: Default schemas for Windows groups


We want to seek your feedback on understanding the scenarios where you need to assign default schemas to Windows groups.  Based on the requests we have received and reading through one of the longest threads on this issue (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlsecurity/thread/7d46a024-7ed5-4c9b-b091-3640dc04f5a1/), it seems there are multiple solutions that people are trying to achieve using default schemas:

-          Have a default schema as part of the user's session that is set up by the application (through something like SET DEFAULT_SCHEMA = <foo>).  Any objects referenced or created will be bound to that schema.

-          Have a setting in SQL where it rejects any object reference without a schema.  This enforces the app to always use 2 part names (best practice).  This works best when you have access to the application source code or are writing a new application.

Make WPF application look the same on all supported Windows versions

Hi Folks,

I've been developing a WPF application for the past two years on an XP machine. It's mostly been used within my company where everyone else has been using XP, and I have gone to great lengths to make it look good. Now everyone is in the process of upgrading to Windows 7, and the application doesn't look so hot on Windows 7. A few subtle changes in the Windows 7 theme make custom visual changes I introduced on XP look like an eye sore. We are letting some beta customers use this software now, and we plan to distribute more broadly in the future, so I need to make sure the application looks good on any OS that WPF supports. I would be perfectly happy with having the application looking identical on XP, Vista, and W7. I thought I could achieve this by adding the following to my App.xaml file:

  <ResourceDictionary Source="/PresentationFramework.Luna;component/themes/Luna.NormalColor.xaml" />
I tried this, and nothing changed when running the application in Windows 7. Does anyone know how to solve this? I would be most interested in a solution that does not involve any per-OS customization (a per-OS switch statement in one place in my App file might be acceptable). I simply don't have
