I have a need to create an applicaiton that can be installed 1 time only be a user. The application can also be used only 1 time. (on a given PC)
The user may or may not be and administrator.
How can I do this (without registry alteration if possible)?
I'm trying to create an Notify Icon application to give status and action messages to the users about the my server application.
So, I planned to mimic the Microsoft's Action Center.
I need a notify Icon app, building action items as per the incoming messages and actions.
I want to do this in WPF no forms.
Any examples or patterns?
Thanks in advance.
Experts, please advice.
I have a WPF application developed using Visual Studio 2008 + DotNET 3.5 + Windows XP - SP 3.We have wrapped Our WPF application in Active X and hosting in IE 6 and it is works fine ,recently we migrated to IE 8 .Actually we are launching our app inside
a parent application which is Browser based application(developed in java).
When we launch our app in IE 8 and switching between different modules along with our app in parent application our application is crashing.Pls find below stack trace for the problem.
Exception from HRESULT: 0x88980406
Exception Stack Trace:
at System.Windows.Interop.HwndTarget.HandleMessage(Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)
at System.Windows.Interop.HwndSource.HwndTargetFilterMessage(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam, Boolean& handled)
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
Referring to this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/download-and-install-an-asp-net-application
I selected umbraco cms and got this wizard:
I already have Standard Sql Server 2005 on my machine which I wanted to us for above DB and not SqlExpress.
I did not remember "sa" account pwd nor I use explicitly any account to connect to my Sqlserver. I use Windows Authentication account i.e implicit authentication. So I created new account and gave all rights and used it in the above wizard and was able to install the database after some struggle.
My question is: What if I want to use my Windows Account to install the database above? Why the wizard don't have any option to use Windows Integrated Authentication?
Note: I can create the DB with external user I created, just looking specifics for using Windows Authentication for above installation.
Yes, you can run background processes in the cloud. Kevin Hoffman and Nate Dudek use a shopping cart example to demonstrate how to build an application engine as well as implement asynchronous messaging and processing using Azure Storage.

When you sit down to write an ASP. NET application, how much time do you spend thinking about performance? It's unfortunate, but for most developers performance is an afterthought. Performance planning and design really need to be front and center.

If you have an application that handles Windows Media content and you need an effective way to track content usage, Windows Media 9 Series now offers Digital Rights Management (DRM). It allows you to take advantage of the peer-to-peer distribution model and still redirect users back to your app once they have downloaded your content (prior to viewing).

If your application performs any non-UI processing on the thread that controls the user interface, it may make the app seem slow and sluggish, frustrating users. But writing multithreaded apps for Windows has long been restricted to C++ developers. Now with the .NET Framework, you can take advantage of multiple threads in C# to control the flow of instructions in your programs and isolate the UI thread for a fast and snappy user interface. This article shows you how. Also, it discusses the pitfalls of multiple threads and presents a framework for safe concurrent thread execution.

DirectShow is an API that enables Windows applications to control a wide variety of audio/video input devices including (but not limited to) DV camcorders, Web cams, DVD drives, and TV tuner cards. It provides out-of-the-box support for a variety of formats, from WAV and AVI to Windows Media. DirectShow is also extensible, enabling third parties to support their own specialized devices, formats, or processing components. This article introduces the basic concepts behind DirectShow and gives a step-by-step tutorial showing how to create your own video effect filter.
