  1. As I type this, I am creating the UBS drive thanks to your link. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks.
  2. I got locked in one of those update loops. You know what I mean, probably. My Windows 10 would start an automatic update, then fail, and then reset itself to a previous version. This would happen all of the time. I managed to use one of the methods on this link to successfully do an update: https://www.alphr.com/microsoft/1001411/how-to-fix-windows-update-in-windows-10-if-it-becomes-stuck-1 Now, here is the reason why I am making this post. In case I want to ever do a completely fresh reinstall of Windows 10, I want to know how to do this because the CD (DVD, maybe?) and all
  3. How do I solve issues with adding Tabbed Control with Expression Blend 3 for Silverlight App? I am using Microsoft Expression Blend 3 + SketchFlow Version 3.0.1927.0 for a Visual Studio 2008 Windows Embedded CE program. I am trying to add a tabbed control and Expression Blend does not seem to be cooperating. I have tried googling for a solution. I found this link: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc295163.aspx This talks about SimpleTabControl and SimpleTabItem. I did not find these controls in my list of available controls I can add. This page says it is specific to WPF projects. Coul
  4. How To Modify An Element in the Dictionary Class? ======================================= C# has this cool Dictionary class that you can use like a Hash Table. Is there a way of changing the value of an indexed element without resorting to removing it like this? int value = runningcount[city]; runningcount.Remove(city); runningcount.Add(city, ++value);
  5. In a silverlight app, I have a BitmapImage defined as System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapImage and it as a method called "SetSource" where I can set the source like this: BitmapImage bitmap = new BitmapImage(); System.IO.Stream stream = _scene.GetStream(); if (stream == null) return; bitmap.SetSource(stream); In a WPF application I have also have a Bitmap image defined as System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapImage but there is no SetSource method. How do I set the source in a WPF app like I do in a Silverlight app? Also, it is a stream, not a string. It is not a URI. so "UriSource"
  6. How do you set a default size of a control that you can resize? I have been looking at a code sample from Charles Petzold. It is from here: http://www.charlespetzold.com/blog/2009/05/Realizing-a-Fisheye-Effect-in-Silverlight.html it uses mouse over methods to increase the size of button classes. I have it working but I want to make some modifications. I want the starting size of the button to be larger. I do not know how much of the code I need to post here to make the issue clear enough. The XAML for the page describes a "FisheyeButton" that is described in a seperate xaml file.
  7. Help me Convert this WPF to Silverlight I am interested in a Charles Petzold C# example that shows how to do a fisheye effect ( http://www.charlespetzold.com/blog/2009/05/Realizing-a-Fisheye-Effect-in-Silverlight.html ). The XAML code samples are in WPF but I want to try this in Silverlight. When I try to create the XAML code in Silverlight, the compiler complains in two locations: <Style TargetType="{x:Type Button}"> Error 1 The type 'x:Type' was not found. Verify that you are not missing an assembly reference and that all referenced assemblies have been built. <Style.Tr
  8. TextBlock wrapping of text in Silverlight XAML file. I have a wierd and annoying problem. I have a textblock that is inside a stackpanel that is Oriented horizontal. It would be nice if I could have the textblock appear in multiple lines nicely wrapped. How could I do that?
  9. Hey, I have got a question. What are the browser formats to be concerned with if you want your web site to be viewed universally? I mean, if you can develop a cool silverlight app, I know that Silverlight does not run on Internet Explorer 64 bit. So I guess I would have to use HTML 5 for that. What about the other browsers and platforms and what would be the replacement technologies?
  10. I have a router and an internet connection. I have 3 computers connected to the router. One of which is with a wireless connection. I set all this up a couple of years ago and I have completely forgotten how I did it. And now my son tells me that he can use his Nintendo DS with a wireless internet connection but he needs to know my password. How do I reset my password for my internet connection? I do not even know where to go on my system to find this information.
  11. Sadly, Diskeeper from Executive Software is rated high on this post: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=18603 I wonder if those who support this software know where their money goes.
  12. So my new job started. The company provided me with a computer with a Windows Server 2008 operating system and they told me I should watch some Live Meeting recorded instructions and demonstrations about how the system works that I will be working on. Live Meeting, in case you don’t know, has a very cool feature where you can record a power point and video demonstration and play it back later. The problem is that the video part does not work for a 64 bit operating system like Windows Server 2008. An error prompts you to download an MSA1 codec. After a few attempts to solve the problem, I asked
  13. What is the equivalant of a 'friend' keyword in C Sharp? How do I use the 'internal' keyword?
  14. I am new to this software. I am used to a different sort of comparison software. For starters, what do the colors mean? The folders have different colors some are half one color and half another one. Beyond Compare is a very highly recommended software, but I was expecting something where all the subdirectories and contents would be shown directly to me.
  15. I have been able to launch a batch file from a C# program in a number of ways. Duncan Mackenzie's blog on msdn shows a number of ways how it can be done and I have tried them. (http://blogs.msdn.com/csharpfaq/archive/2004/06/01/146375.aspx). But I have a unique problem. The batch file launches a program that seems to require that a command window (cmd) be open when it runs. Because of this, the batch file works if I launch it from a command line, but when I launch it in a C# program, an exception is thrown. So my question is this. How can I open a cmd window from C# and feed it the command t
