  1. HI, We need a clarification in regards to debugging a device driver in a remote/foreign machine. We use NULL MODEM CABLE to connect the COM ports of the two machines that run in WinXP. We have checked the NULL MODEM CABLE using 'HYPER TERMINAL' application. We use "WinDbg" to debug the drivers. The procedure we followed: 1. hve modified the 'boot.ini' in the target machine (where driver is installed). 2. In host machine windbg is initiated with windbg -k option.(also the symbol path and source path are set) 3. as the target machine is rebooted , the host machine is not recognising ..also there is not indication that the target machine is ready to communicate with the host. any suggestion with diagrams/snapshots for the setup will be very helpful. Thanks and best regards, Ootsoo

  5. Hi. Reference to MSDN under the topic pipes/Anonymous Pipe/Pipe Handle Inheritance The following are the steps mentioned for redirecting the standard output handle to the child process 1.Call the GetStdHandle function to get the current standard output handle 2.Call the SetStdHandle function to set the standard output handle to the write handle to the pipe. 3.Create the child process 4.Call the CloseHandle function to close the write handle to the pipe. 5.Call SetStdHandle to restore the original standard output handle My Question is whether there will be any impact in the parent process when the restoring of the original handle is not done. Please reply back. its urgent. Moreover, the GetStdHandle() API in the step (1) is returning INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE. When does this API returns INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE. When GetLastError is called it returns 6 (invalid handle). Is there any scenario or condition in which this API return INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE. Thanks in advance

    stan vs harv

    A lady in a faded grey dress and her husband, dressed in a homespun! suit, stepped off the train in Boston and walk timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President's outer office. The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, country hicks had no business at Harvard and probably didn't even deserve to be in Harvard. "We want to see the President," the man said softly. "He'll be busy all day," the secretary snapped. "We'll wait," the lady replied. For hours the secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They didn't and the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president." Maybe if you see them for a few minutes, they'll leave," she said to him. The President, stern faced and with dignity, strutted toward the couple. The lady told him, "We had a son who attended Harvard for one year. He loved Harvard. He was happy here. But about a year ago, he was accidentally killed. My husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him, somewhere on campus." The president wasn't touched.... He was shocked. "Madam," he said, gruffly, "we can't put up a statue for every person who attended Harvard and died. If we did, this place would look like a cemetery." "Oh, no," the lady explained quickly. "We don't want to erect a statue. We thought we would like to give a building to Harvard." The president rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, and then exclaimed, "A building! Do you have any earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical buildings here at Harvard." For a moment the lady was silent. The president was pleased. Maybe he! could get rid of them now. The lady turned to her husband and said quietly, "Is that all it costs to start a university? Why don't we just start our own?" Her husband nodded. The president's face wilted in confusion and bewilderment. Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford got up and walked away, traveling to Palo Alto, California where they established the University that bears their name, Stanford University, a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared about. Most of the time we judge people by their outer appearance, which can be misleading. And in this impression only we tend to treat people badly by thinking they can do nothing for us thus we tend to loose our potential good friends, employees or customers.
  10. too cool... came really out of a sleepy lunch session after this joke... Oo
  11. hi all, I have a group of separate/unique Shockwave Flash Object files. say a.sfo , b.sfo , c.sfo ... All these files were taken from temp internet files (folder). All of these files have the next button in them!
