  1. Hi, use: dir /x to see the 8.3 Filenames next to the long ones. Bye, Egon
  2. Hi, example on how to create a shortcut on the user's desktop: shortcut -f -t C:\SysTools\ProcExp.exe -n "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Process Explorer" This will create a shortcut to C:\SysTools\ProcExp and place the corresponding .lnk File on your Desktop. Bye, Egon
  3. Hi Kukris, there is a command called "shortcut.exe" which you can use for this purpose. I have attached the tool. Bye, Egon SHORTCUT.EXE
  4. Hi PMshah, the OP wanted to know if global environment variable setup is possible from within BATCH FILES, not manually. Bye, Egon
  5. Hi Kukris, just try the following instead: start C:\"my prog"\prog.exe Bye, Egon
  6. Hi, Environmental Variables are stored in the Registry. Current User: HKCU\Environment Local Machine: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment Use a tool like reg.exe to modify these. Bye, Egon
  7. Hi, as most of you will know, with Windows XP there is a technique shipped called "ClearType" which uses Sub-Pixel Rendering for Text Display. If you set Font Smoothing to "Standard" only larger Sized Fonts are smoothed using a standard Anti-Aliasing (Grayscale) Method. My question is, if there is any way to enable this Type of Font smoothing for ALL Fonts on the System, not only the large ones. The reason i ask for this is, that i very dislike ClearType because my Eyes hurt when looking at them - MacOS for Example uses the same technique as Windows with "Standard" Font Smoothing - but also at lower Font sizes, and these looks good to my eyes. Any suggestions? For Reference i have attached a Image which shows the Smoothing i mean (labeled with Anti-Aliasing) Goodbye, Egon
  8. Hi, SrvAny is your friend: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q137890/ Bye, Egon
  9. Hi, i have a little problem accessing a new bought external USB Harddisk on my Win2k Box. When i connect the Drive, it shows up in the Device Manager, but i am unable to assign a Drive letter to it using the Disk Manager (not shows up at all there). The Harddisk itself is formatted with FAT32 and works when booting to my WinXP Installation on the same machine. Any suggestions? Thanks, Egon /edit: The external Disk has 60 GB size and is a USB 2.0 Device
  10. Hi Guys, today i run into a rather interesting Problem concerning the partitioning done by the Windows XP Installer. I always used two partitions (two primary partitions, one with the operating system (c:) and one with my data stuff (d:)). Because today i upgraded my PC to a new Mainboard and CPU i had to reinstall Windows to upgrade to the long awaited x64 Version. Here's where i run into trouble. I deleted the Primary Partition (using the Windwos XP installer), created a new one on the now free space and installed it. But now my Data Partition (formerly assigned to Drive D:) has become E: - and i am unable to move it back to D: because of the simple reason that the D: Partition is the active one and contains the Boot Files (ntdetect.com,ntldr,boot.ini). I played around with the Idea of moving the Boot files to the C: Drive and make it the active one - but Windows Installer has created a Extended Partition and created C: as a Logical Partition - so i am unable to make it the active one. Has anyone run into the same Problems? Can i repartition my Harddisk (for example with Partition magic) to have C: as a Primary and active Partition without corrupting the OS installation? Thanks and Bye, Egon
  11. Hi, i had a similar problem a few months ago. The problem was that my user was in too many AD Groups. Solved the Problem by setting the following Registry Key: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSA\Kerberos\Parameters (DWORD:MaxTokenSize=0x000186A0) Maybe this helps for you. Egon
  12. Hi, the ICMP Protocol (which is mostly used by Ping, Traceroute,...) is described in the following RFC: www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc792.html Read through this manual and you know how it works in detail. Egon
  13. Hi, is the page which tries to access the cookie on the same domain as the one who sat up the cookie? Egon
  14. Hi, i personally would use the Cygwin Tools to manipulate Text Files the way you need. Use a Bash Script like this: cat linkfile.txt | while read line do echo http:\/\/${line} >> newfile.txt done (get cygwin at www.cygwin.com) Egon
  15. Hi, Sounds like you have DHCP enabled on your Router. Check if your settings are correct on the Router. When yes, try to install a Network sniffing software like Ethereal and check whats going on during the process of aquiring a IP Address. The 169 Addresses are windows default if no IP could be retrieved from your DHCP Server. Egon PS: If your Router is a NAT Device, you really shouldn't use a non private network range in your local network. (Private networks are 192.168.*.*, 172.16.*.* and 10.*.*.*)
  16. Hi, it really depends on what video standard you are using. For NTSC (American Standard) the DVD has a resolution of 720x480. For PAL (European) the Resolution is 720x576. A complete list of common Display Resolutions are at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_resolution Bye, Egon
  17. Hi, Java Applets work on *ANY* Webspace because they are executed on the Client Side. Egon
  18. Hi, there should be software provided by the manufactor of your keyboard to set up those things - at least HP provides such software for their laptop/pc Keyboards. Egon
  19. Hi, you can also call for example HP and tell them that you want to buy a replacement Keyboard for your AlphaServer - these Machines use standard PS/2 connected Keyboards with PC104 Layout (look same as the actual types they sell with their PC's) but don't have the Windows Keys. Same with IBM and their RS/6000 Keyboards. Egon /edit: btw imho the best keyboard ever (and still) manufactured is the Avant Stellar Keyboard: http://www.cvtinc.com/products/keyboards/stellar.htm
  20. Hi, i am currently in the process of gathering information about hardware for our new development server. Has anyone experience with the following MoBo http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/ser...ail.php?UID=560 in the area of: stability, relability Thanks, Egon
  21. Hi, 1.) Is IIS starting up fine? 2.) If yes, check if iis is listening on Port 80: netstat -na | find /n "80" | find /n "LISTENING" 3.) If yes - do you have any firewalls enabled on your system? 4.) If no.... check your settings in the IIS Administrator and post details. bye, Egon
  22. Hi, please be more specific in what you exactly want to do... Egon
  23. Hi, which version of the .NET Framework do you had installed before Visual Studio 2003? Was it possible to run a asp.net application before you have installed VS2003? Try to re-register ASP.NET to IIS: C:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe Egon
  24. Hi, sure it's possible. You have to write a HTTP Client inside your PHP Script which retrieves the Data on request of the Client, stores them local and presents a page where the Client can then download this file. Hint: Retrieving Data from a HTTP Site using Sockets: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=54660 Egon
  25. Hi, i've never used Socket's in a PHP Script before, but a quick look into the PHP Manual gave me a plenty amount of information about this. Just look in the PHP Manual (downloadable from PHP.net in CHM Format, if you don't have it already) and look for "Socket Functions" Short excerpt: Socket creation: <?php $socket = stream_socket_server("tcp://", $errno, $errstr); if (!$socket) { echo "$errstr ($errno)<br />\n"; } else { while ($conn = stream_socket_accept($socket)) { fwrite($conn, 'The local time is ' . date('n/j/Y g:i a') . "\n"); fclose($conn); } fclose($socket); } ?> How to write to a socket and retrieve data: <?php $fp = stream_socket_client("tcp://www.example.com:80", $errno, $errstr, 30); if (!$fp) { echo "$errstr ($errno)<br />\n"; } else { fwrite($fp, "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\nHost: www.example.com\r\nAccept: */*\r\n\r\n"); while (!feof($fp)) { echo fgets($fp, 1024); } fclose($fp); } ?> Hope that helps, Egon
