To all you guys who worry about how to maintain the code etc. It seems that none of you actually understand my problem. I do not ask for people to write an entire application for me. It is a specific issue which I have been unable to solve. Bear in mind, I have been talking to many other ( famous ) programmers ( I am not allowed to name them because they work closely with Microsoft ) and even THEY could not solve this.
The final code is most likely simple as long as you know HOW to do it. It is not a math problem where you can say "You are too stupid to solve this.". This issue has to do with poor documentation on MSDN and no source code samples.
It is proven specially when some of you suggest $500 is too low for this according to yourselves "simple" "tiny" issue.
Even a foreach-loop is complex is you do NOT know how to do it nor have ANY good documentation for it.
I have been a developer since the 1990s, I'm not a total noobie. I used to eat Assembly lunch. If this issue was simple, you guys would paste the code here already. Why don't you ask all others who post questions in Tech Off to pay you $$$ and nag about how $500 is too low.
First it's too simple to solve, now the price is too low.
The reason for $500 for this "simple" issue is that I have no time to solve it myself. It is a side project. Has nothing to do with my work and I am not in school or something like that. I'm probably older than most of you.
Most of you are just pathetic to watch.
@evildictator: you seem to be the only "reasonable" people around and actually trying to help. I did not even think about using vWork or sites like that because panic paying people for small problem solving is a rather "normal" thing to do in many, shall we say FRIENDLIER places. I thank you for your help.
I have done it for years and years and Channel 9 is the only and only place where people call me names, tell me to "grow a pair" ( wtf? ) for asking specific code related help and putting up money for getting help a little quicker.
Every other person I emailed directly have been most respectful to me, most helpful and been putting hours to help me WITHOUT even asking for money EVEN WHEN I OFFERED THEM. They failed to solve this, however.
Bear in mind, I HAVE solved this working in Windows 7 x64 but it will not work in Windows 8 for some reason.
Not all of you of course but most of you who jump on me for asking for help IN A PROGRAMMING TECH FORUM are just sad stories, unpolite and absolute lowest of the low.
You not only lack technical skills to help, even for $500, but you just insult people when they ask for help. Pathetic creatures. If there was on ounce of shame in you, you would be melting to Earth's core by now.
You might put on $1000 clothes but lowest of the low, is what you are no matter how you dress that pig.
Filth, absolute filth is what I see here in Channel 9.
