I have a cross wire cable between 2 devices and the mac address of one of this devices, how can I us

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :WPF

This is the scenario:

I have two devices connected, one is a windows embedded 7mini PC and the other is an arm development board, I have no external internet connections in any of them so I cannot rely in external DNS to get IP address.  but I have the mac address of the ethernet handler on arm development board  which is static and does not change.

Can I use this MAC address to create a socket on the windows 7 device to interogate the arm board or there is any other class I could use with to stablish the direct connection using ethernet cross over cable?

Kind regards

Pocket PC: MSMQ for Windows CE Brings Advanced Windows Messaging to Embedded Devices


Handheld devices are becoming increasingly important nodes on wireless networks, allowing their users to connect to data stores and other central server applications over the network. But wireless network connections can be unreliable, requiring the use of store-and-forward messaging that does not need to maintain a continuous connection. Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) has supplied these features to desktop machines, and there is now a version for handheld devices. MSMQ for Windows CE allows users of embedded devices to perform tasks such as remote order processing and inventory update without worrying about the state of their connection. The benefits of MSMQ for Windows CE and how to install and run the service is covered here.

SQL Server CE: New Version Lets You Store and Update Data on Handheld Devices


Handheld device users need to be able to synchronize with a main data store when it's convenient and, preferably, when the back-end database server isn't busy. SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition allows you to build a traveling data store that can be displayed and run on a variety of devices. SQL Server CE supports a subset of the full SQL Server package, and can be used as a standalone server or in tandem with SWL Server and IIS. The architecture of SQL Server CE, along with data manipulation, synchronization, and connectivity issues, are discussed in this article. Topics such as making your data public, choosing the right type of replication, and handling errors are also covered.

Accessing Client Devices & Upload to Server


I'm in the process of creating a ASP.NET page that will allow the user to upload PDF files stored on a CD onto the server. I have written a piece of code that checks for an .ini file and then goes into a specific folder that will save the PDF files to a folder I have specified on my computer. Now that works fine in localhost, but when I uploaded it to the server it stopped working. 

I get a 404 error everytime I click on the button to upload. I suspect i'm not correctly accessing the client's cd drive because the path to their drive isn't correct.

Multiplexing the Human Race & their devices


The user/device CAL model for SharePoint is flawed in such a way that Microsoft is multiplexing every person connected to the Internet, which of course their products would strictly prohibit.  How is this fair.

If I personally buy both SharePoint Server 2010 Standard & Enterprise CAL, why should anyone else purchase another CAL on my behalf, this is multiplexing.


Some great new ways to use SharePoint, but it is crippled by the licensing requirements.  It is interesting to note the Licensing-Details page does not explain how SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites works at all, why is that?

With over 100+ Million SharePoint CAL sales, how many are unique users (10, 20, 30 million remember they are multiplexing us).

Look forward to comments.

EndScene function is called with several Direct3D devices.How to find out which one is a WPF window,



I am working on a screen grabbing application, which has a feature of grabbing a particular window. To make my application working with WPF applications with a good speed, I have chosen a "Direct3D hooking" approach for grabbing image of a WPF window, which means that I install hooks for some Direct3D calls, specifically, EndScene function. This works because WPF uses Direct3D for rendering windows contents.

However I ran into the following issue:
EndScene is called with several Direct3D devices, not a single one. I have looked into contents of each device's back buffer and found out that in addition to main window rendering, there are separate devices which are used for rendering of menus and tooltips.
However EndScene is called just with a pointer to a D3D device which is used for rendering and no information about whether a main window is rendered or a menu/tooltip. Also no information is available about position of menu/tooltip relative to main window coordinates (so that with that information I could compose a single image rendering images of window and menus/tooltips together).

So my question is: given Direct3D device which is used for rendering a window, how to identify a window (WPF window) by ob
