Michael Butler Michael Butler Just a software kind of guy.
  • Problem with Win10 File Explorer

    Ah. My OneDrive didn't install correctly either. I'll try your solution.

  • Problem with Win10 File Explorer

    The last two builds for me have had explorer crashes. Seems fairly random, but Explorer just dies and restarts. It can take a few attempts before I can get to the file folder I want without it disappearing when explorer dies.

  • Resuming...

    I had the problem after uninstalling the Lock screen beta.

    Have a read of http://www.windowscentral.com/tip-resuming-live-lock-screen-beta-uninstall which should help you sort the issue


  • Channel 9 for Xbox One

    @Kryptos: We haven't had much time to spend on it, sorry... really just two devs working on site features, only one was working on the Xbox One app... also the person behind the player on the site and the Windows 8 app (and many more things that are not as visible). We will see what we can do to raise it in our priority list though! We'd like to see it too!

    Thanks for the update. We all know the feeling, lots to do, so little time or resource ;) We might not say it enough, but we really do appreciate all the work that the C9 team do for us developers.

    Of course, if you could get it ready for BUILD 2015, so I can watch the keynotes and sessions on my big-screen without having to use Play-to-Xbox of the downloaded MP4, that would be super cool.


  • No more need for developers (that means you)

    Seeing as their web-site can't even support IE 11, then I'm not too worried about this.

    I've seen these tools come and go over my entire 25 year career, even tried to write a few myself, but never found one which threatened my developer existence.

    I'm all for tools that raise the abstraction layer to be closer to just concentrating on writing the bit that solves the business problem. However, there are always sometimes you need to step outside the tooling to do something, and that's when the entire thing breaks down and you have to jump through hoops to do something that would be easier if you'd just written the code yourself.


  • Channel 9 officially dead?

    The MSDN teams organise a lot of local events,



  • Channel 9 officially dead?

    With Build not until April. I guess there isn't a lot new they are ready to talk about. Plenty of content here already for building Universal apps for Win 8.x, which seems to be the road to supporting Windows 10 across all devices.

  • New MSN live. Any plans for C9 to talk to the team behind the rebuild?

    I see local weather on the top left, a summary with a link that takes me to my local weather. My experience has been customised by my using of the former Bing/now MSN apps on Windows and Windows Phone.

  • New MSN live. Any plans for C9 to talk to the team behind the rebuild?

    New "rebuilt" site is live.

    Rollout begins

    "The new MSN is completely built from the ground up on Azure to provide massive, cost-effective scale (with more than 30,000 Azure cores for serving and 100 Terabytes of storage), reliability, and ongoing agility for a cloud-first, mobile-first world. Every single line of code was re-written to ensure that you have one consistent experience regardless of whether you are accessing your stocks in MSN Money, your favorite sports teams in MSN Sports, or your recipe collections in MSN Food & Drink. All of those experiences will always be with you across your devices."

    Would love to know more details about the developer story behind the rebuild.

    Any chance of some videos and interviews?

    Much larger worlds? The PC version can generate up to 32,000,000 blocks. How much more do you want?


    Well I'm an Xbox player, so I don't get the PC sized world. I'm JavaPhobic, so maybe a move to C++ would be good to switch me to PC.
