Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

silverlight windows 7

: My silverlight app gets an error on a windows 7 enterprise 64 bit OS. From a school network it will load but it wont access a sql DB. It will work from my laptop in the school and I have the same access rights. I spoke to the tech in the school and he claims it isnt a permission thing and also my asp.net app works. That asp.net app connects to the same  DB on the same school environemt that the silverlight app doesnt. Both of the application are hosted on an external site of course. It must be these WCF calls issue. THis isnt making any sense to me as on XP it all works fine. login 01 pswd 1 http://www.mymrt.net/sums/sums.Web/sumsTestPage.aspx .   Problem is I tried this on a few computers and silverlight does work . It is only when calling the database it stalls with the error. I can run  SL app without WCF no problem on the computers.   Message: Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application [net_uri_BadFormat] Arguments: Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem.

Possible bug in WebBrowser Control realization in WPF and Windows Phone 7

Hello, I'm tried to make authentication component for russian social network Vkontakte.ru (vk.com). In russian forum nobody answered me. The proplem: When authentication is complete WebBrowser component must be redirected to page like: http://vkontakte.ru/login_success.html#session={%22expire%22%3A%221272008089%22%2C%22mid%22%3A%22100172%22%2C%22secret%22%3A%229c8d8f0305%22%2C%22sid%22%3A%221131703552161ae352a1256402e3140d7cbde41b1602a93d15472c82%22} In Windows Form application all works normal.

Or this parameter can be accessed from another place?

Windows 7, SQL Server 2008 Express & VWD 2008 Express Setup Problems

Hi I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and Visual Web Developer Express 2008 (which came with SP1) installed. SQL Server 2008 Express never worked - Windows 7 won't allow the Management Studio to be installed and VWD was asking for SQL Server 2005.  Looking on the web, I found advice to try the 32 bit version of SQL Server instead.  This would work with VWD, apparently.  I referred to these instructions (http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/3/163A851B-D956-42E9-B426-F5C0EBE6B654/ReleaseNotes.htm) and used the latest links and instructions, but I could not install SQL Server at all - apparently something to do with WOW64... This has been going on for a WHILE and I'm going nuts.  I am reluctant to uninstall VWD and start again, because I had to manually fix a few things, and now it's working...  PLEASE can someone tell me of a working configuration, I have read SO MUCH advice on this, and none works, including those release notes (unless I missed something) :(
