Oh man, I have been using Configuration Manager with System Center Advisor and it never reports any problems, but I have never been able to get the software catalog to connect to the Application Server. I troubleshot this for about 2 weeks, then i gave up. No matter what I do I cannot get the Application Catalog Web Portal to work correctly. I have made sure that I have all the prerequisites and I have also reinstalled the web site and website svc roles multiple times. I think it is a problem with the connection to SQL server. Anyway, The Advisor was easy to set up but I wanted it to help me fix this problem, and it did not give any alerts yet.

Welcome Back Gov,"tree hugger How come you never mentioned the custom refresh option in windows 8 where you can make your own custom refresh.wim that you can restore without losing your desktop applications, (if you make the custom refresh with them already installed.) What I did after installing Windows 8 Pro, all available updates and all of the programs and applications that I need to use on a daily basis, (along with my files) I create a custom refresh.wim and then if I ever have a problem I can refresh the pc back to my own custom baseline wim image. It is a great tip that many people do not know how to do.
I remember a long time ago MagicAndre recommended an application that updates all the sysinternals tools automatically every time you run it if you want to. I have been using this app ever since. WindowsSystemControlCenter - http://www.kls-soft.com/wscc/
Then you can just put this program in skydrive and run it from there and that will enable you to update all the tools if you want. Try it out, it also includes all the Nirsoft utilities as well. It is a great utility that puts all the sysinternals together in one free app. I haven't noticed anything bad about it either, except that the command line tools open in their own command prompt.
I may have missed something but what kind of dump does it have to be to use these commands, minidump is not supported, correct? so it has to be a full dump? I am sorry if I did not pay enough attention and missed something, the whole episode went by really fast.

You know what it is is when you open the video fullscreen then the visual studio text is blurry and hard to read, but if you watch it in the small box on the page then it will not be blurry but is too small to read. It seems to be an issue with scaling the video larger to full screen. It always helps if you guys would read what the code says when you show code from your computer, since your computer screen doesn't scale clearly into our computer screens, but you can download all the source code from codeplex.
Hey Bob When I tried to validate the page created in this lesson, I get the following errors:
requirednot allowed on element
inputat this point.
<p><label><span>Range input: </span><input type=range name=rangeInput required value=42></label>By default....</p>
5is not serializable as XML 1.0.
<p><label><span>step: </span><input type=number step 5></label>
Any ideas what they are talking about here?
I thought I knew the difference between get and post before, but now i'm totally confused. Bob, as far as what you were saying, I definitely heard something similar to that, but I know Candritzky is also correct. Now, I I have to go and research this again, because Candritzky just confused me with his explanation. Maybe a follow up comment with the bottom line differences would do us some justice.
