  • .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 and Welcome Screen Log-On

    Hi Robert

    That's a feature I submitted as a bug more than a year ago, but is still not fixed in the installer.

    If you want to have it back to normal automatic logon, download the TweakUI utility from Microsoft.
    After installation and starting it up go to the Logon category and uncheck "Show "ASPNET" on Welcome screen" or maybe also the SQLDebugger account that is also suffering from this bug.

    So after changing this only your account and "Parse Autoxec.bat at logon" should be checked. Then press OK and on the next reboot you should notice things are back to normal.

    Good luck,

  • What happened to Great Out of the Box Experience?

    Have you tried defragmentation of your system drive? You could also delete the sp2 uninstall files in the windows directory to regain some HD-space.

    As for operating systems, I don't really give much value to it as such, it starts to provide value if it supports a lot of hardware, availability of lots of good software, reliability and easy management of the system settings and for a developer ease of application development and deployment. For this reason Windows still remains to dominate the market.

    The thing is, Windows has to handle so many different scenarios so that you as a experienced user may find it too 'friendly', while a newbie may still need a lot of time to perform tasks. Somewhere in the middle you should find the mainstream users who confidently get their work done.

  • Serializati​on problem

    Have you looked into the [Serializable] directive?

  • Serializati​on problem

    Hi karenina

    Are you maybe trying to serialize an Office com-object? And for what do you the object to be serialized?

    And for what reason are you not updating the framework?


  • Countdown Board for Longhorn Release

    Hi Istation

    It would certainly reflect optimism or pessimism from day to day, but if it would be accurate? Probably only the last few weeks.

    Let them leave the dirty laundry inside and release deadline information. I don't feel much for rumour driven schedules. But I sure would like to know when the next public bits are planned.


  • Calling the next Windows?

    Yup, I can remember "Windows FX" rumours...

    My suggestion would be Windows XS (derived from accessibility) or X6 to also mark the release year, but it would only work in Dutch as 6 is pronounced as zes.

  • Interesting Little Article About Longhorn, XNA and The Future of PC Gaming

    But how about in 4 years, will the level of your PC have dropped from 5 to 1, or will there be PC's available with level 10?

    I have doubts about it marketingwise, how are you able to sell your level 1 pc's from the supermarket? And how about if they would sell it as a level 2?

    Benchmarks are also not an option, as each year there will be another benchmark that takes new features into account, that will alter existing benchmakrk figures...

    But indeed, there is a need to quantify the preformance... Maybe some tool integrated into the operating system so you could check the performance live at the store?

  • Hey, ASP.NET team...

    Well, it means an ROI for the developer, right?

    Perform the browser check for the browsers you plan to support, and output different javascripts accordingly.

  • Where is C9 going?

    Cool Wink
    Don't forget the camera!
    But I guess you're not going to get away with filming some of the new controls. I'm particularly interested to see the new picture-scroller control, which at the center displays a few rows of pictures, and on the left and right side the other pictures in perspective, with the horizontal scrollbar showing the timeline and statistical info of the number of pictures taken each month (something Google implemented in Picasa)

  • Where is C9 going?

    Could you interview some of the Dutch people from Delft that are on the Longhorn design team? It has been said they do some fantastic stuff, even that I could be regarded as a little biassed as I'm from Holland as well Tongue Out

    Ask them how they feel about their work being able to change usability aspects

    Tnx Wink
