Edit file in Visual Studio from command line

For years I’ve used a tool I found internally at Microsoft called VSEdit to load a file into an existing instance of Visual Studio from the command line. Microsoft released that handy little tool on MSDN (albeit without the source), but they also added the feature directly to the Visual Studio executable image (devenv). Sara […]

osCommerce admin login won’t login

I’ve been implementing a new website using the WP.osC framework (based on osCommerce) and ran into a problem of not being able to login to the admin panel.  It would simply redirect back to the admin login page.  This typically occurred when I would change the URL to the store website. Quite a few people […]

mysql_connect to localhost on Windows 7 and Windows Vista times out

I’ve been developing PHP websites against mysql on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and finally decided I needed to start doing my testing and debugging on a client machine instead.  My development machine runs Windows 7 so it is running the same version of IIS as my Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. […]

Editing applicationHost.config on 64-bit Windows

I’m coming up to speed on IIS7 on Windows Server 2008 R2.  There is a lot to like, but there is also a lot to learn.  One of the things that’s interesting about R2 is that there is no 32-bit version, so I’m finally running 64-bit Windows.  This doesn’t come without its problems. One of […]

“Location is not available” on Windows Server 2008

I’ve just recently added a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine to my network with a domain controller running Windows Server 2003 SBS.  Everything seemed to be working fine for a couple days (not sure why it lasted that long) when I started getting an error message like this: The system detected a possible attempt to […]

Troubleshooting on IIS7

I’ve been setting up WordPress on Windows Server 2008 R2 lately and as part of trying to understand the issues fully – by installing, uninstalling, installing, etc., the last time through I forgot to create the database and the SQL user for WordPress. Unfortunately, when I connected to my website, all I got was the […]

Docking Windows in Visual Studio

I made a mistake today when trying to move tool windows around in Visual Studio – I merged the two docking frames at the bottom while debugging.  I couldn’t figure out how to split them again, so I decided to search for a solution.  MSDN came to the rescue When you drag a tab or […]

PHP Failure Due To Missing Timezone

I’ve been working on installing PHP 5.3.0 on a new server running Windows Server 2008 R2 and encountered a problem I hadn’t run into before.  After installing PHP following the instructions I published here (FastCGI is supported natively by W2K8 R2 so I didn’t need to do anything to use that), the following message was […]

MySQL Install Hangs

I’m in the process of setting up WordPress on another server running Windows Server 2008 R2 following the same instructions I published for installing on Windows Server 2003 (see the series of articles here).  I ran into some trouble with the step to install phpMyAdmin so I tried to uninstall everything, including PHP and MySQL.  […]

Including FLV files in Windows Media Player 12 Video Library

My son has downloaded a variety of instructional FLV (Flash video) files that he wants to have available in Windows Media Player.  Since we just installed Windows 7, he was having trouble figuring out how to make it work.  He’d already installed the correct codec (ffdshow) so he was able to play the videos, but […]
