I use several devices which must connect to my Wndows 7 pc often. Some days ago, suddenly I did not succeed in coupling them to my pc. The problem seems to be security related. My solution:
- Open a command prompt window using elevated rights.
- Type the following command in the window: net localgroup Administrators local service /add
- Press Enter
- Done (at least, you should be)!
It is probably a little too agressive to solve the problem like I did, but I assume you can use this command as a work-around or as a reference for a better solution. In that last case, I would definitely like to see your solution in the comments section .
In Outlook I heavily use some favorite/search folders (for instance, the search folder for mails that need follow up). I use Microsoft Exchange 2010 and therefore have Outlook Web Access (OWA) as webmail client. Although there is a favorites bar in OWA, I did not get it equal to my Outlook favorites. Luckily, I discovered that this is in fact possible (sorry, screenshots are in Dutch, the icons should look familiar though):
- In your mail profile (via Control Panel), uncheck the checkbox for ‘Use Cached Exchange mode’.
- Restart Outlook.
- Wait for some magical seconds (and maybe now create some favorites/search folders).
- Navigate to OWA (or refresh) and see the favorites and search folders to be synced.
- You can now recheck the checkbox from 1. again if you like…
Done! Good luck!
Tomorrow I will be demoing about the Build Windows event last week. Of course, as a SCRUM Master, I must demo something about the new Team Foundation Service preview. But… How to come up with something different than a boring project name like ‘Windows 8 TFS Demo App’? When surfing around the Interwebs just minutes ago, I stumbled upon a really great Dilbert strip inspiring me to laugh a bit (although it didn’t help out on the name, unfortunately ). I hope hereby I share the smile with somebody also searching around for inspiration .
PS1. Notice the dog’s name is Dogbert (nice variation on my blog’s name ).
PS2. The name I came up with? CreAte!
Lately I seem to use Twitter more than I use my blog. Keeping up on Twitter is easier than writing entire blog items . I just added the WP to Twitter plugin to my blog to notice my followers that I blog sometimes. Therefore, if you are interested in my short messages to the world as well ánd want to stay tuned with my progress at this blog, I hereby invite you to follow me: @loedeman.
Happy coding! Cheers!
I had to find the public key token for a strongly named assembly in .NET. Searching for a solution, I came along Wriju’s Blog. It appears the answer is very simple: use the .NET Framework tool ‘sn.exe’. Since I do not want to forget about this one, here it is:
- Open the Visual Studio <version reflecting DLL creator/signer> Command Prompt
- Point to the dll’s folder you want to get the public key
- Use the following command: sn –T myDLL.dll
This will give you the public key token. Of course this only works if the assembly is strongly signed .
