    Migration: 500,000 Windows Live Spaces blogs migrated to WordPress.com

    • 0 Comments

    Recently we heard the announcement regarding Microsoft Windows Live Spaces blogs working with WordPress.com to let customers connect the fantastic blogging capabilities of WordPress with the leading communications and sharing services of Windows Live.

    Per Dharmesh Mehta, Director of Windows Live Product Management, as of today, just over half a million Spaces blogs have now migrated to WordPress.com. On top of that, nearly half a million additional Windows Live customers have decided to create entirely new blogs on WordPress.com.  And for each of those nearly 1 million new people now blogging on WordPress.com, there are, of course, many more new blog visitors also now going to WordPress.com. 

    People are continuing to migrate their Spaces blogs over to WordPress.com, and to those of you who haven’t gotten around to it yet, we want to remind you that you’ll need to do so before March 2011.

    As part of this partnership, we’re helping customers to migrate their existing Windows Live Spaces blogs over to WordPress.com. Also we’re using the power of Messenger Connect to help customers share their blog posts with their Messenger friends.

    I too migrated my Windows Live site to WordPress.com Smile

    Microsoft Windows : I'm a PC, aren't you?

    • 1 Comments

    Many people started murmuring what is this new stuff, "I'm a PC"? what is this all about.

    Even i got the following excerpts:

    "... if you're a PC, you belong to one of the world's most diverse communities, connecting across countries, cultures and technologies. Explore this PC Gallery and see what individuality looks like on your screen. You can also record and upload yourself, becoming part of this site and appearing in online ads across the world wide web.

    Where you connect to a global community of more than a billion people and nothing comes between you and a world of ideas and opportunities. With Windows on your mobile phone, PC, or the Web, walls begin to disappear—at home, at the office, and anywhere in between. You can balance work and life as well as fun and functionality. And with a wide range of software, services, and devices to choose from, your technology can be as unique as you are. That's Windows. Life without walls..."

    Later I found that Microsoft launched the next phase of a long-term Windows marketing effort, with the tagline “Life Without Walls.” Key to the new initiative are TV and online spots called “I’m a PC”, which feature both real people celebrating their connection to the community of one billion Windows users worldwide. Windows users can join the community by uploading their own “I’m a PC” videos on windows.com and some user videos will be show on digital billboards in New York’s Time Square.

    The “Life Without Walls” theme was introduced via a set of print and out of home ads which show how multiple Windows devices connect seamlessly, across PCs, phones, TVs and other devices. See the Image Gallery for sample print ads.

    Migrated custom C++/CDOSYS app throws compiler errors

    • 2 Comments

    Recently I was working with one of the developer who earlier designed an CDOSYS based mail component in his C++ application built using earlier Visual Studio (2005) version . After migration to VS 2008 environment, they noticed compile errors with the same code/no changes made. When I debugged further and noticed that the msado15.tlh and cdosys.tlh are not generated correctly for some reasons. When I compared the .tlh file generated by previous VS version, i noticed differences in it – as couple of keywords are missing in method definitions in the .tlh file generated by VS previous versions. That’s the reason, they noticed the compile time/linker errors.

    The generation of .tlh files is affected by some codes in this project, which is compiled earlier than the import sentences. So i moved the import sentences to the very beginning of stdafx.h and used #import attribute “rename” to avoid any name collusion problems. 

    ...
    #import "c:/program files/common files/system/ado/msado15.dll" rename("ADODB","CDO") rename( "EOF", "adoEOF" ) 
    #import  <cdosys.dll>
    ...

    + Then i tried the changes in the code where they use msado15.dll and cdosys.dll:

    Visual Studio - Code

    After the above changes, I can successfully compile it without any errors. It helped them to move ahead.

    Visual Studio Output

    Happy debugging!!

    Exchange Server 2010: EWS applications that run on behalf of the user consume the same client throttling policy budget

    • 0 Comments

    An EWS application that runs on behalf of a user quickly consumes resources on the Microsoft Exchange server 2010. When we investigated, we noticed that the EWS operations the application performs exceed the limit that is set in the client throttling policies. As we know that the client throttling policies for Exchange Web Service are enabled in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment – all client throttling policies are enabled in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2), by default. In this scenario, all the EWS applications that run on behalf of the user are throttled unexpectedly. The expected behavior is that only the EWS application whose operations exceed the limit that is set in the client throttling policies is restricted.

    This issue occurs because all the EWS applications that run on behalf of the user consume the same client throttling policy budget. To resolve the problem, first make sure you installed the latest service pack & rollup for Exchange Server 2010 or install the Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2.

    Troubleshooting: Outlook Social Connector Provider error codes

    • 1 Comments

    Outlook Social Connector providers should return errors to the caller. Please note that Success, warning, and error values are returned by using a 32-bit number that is called a result handle, or HRESULT. An HRESULT is not a handle to anything; it is merely a 32-bit value that has several fields encoded in the value.

    A positive result indicates success with status, a zero result indicates success without status (S_OK), and a negative result indicates failure. I have listed the couple of the error codes that I noticed…

    Error code

    Description 

    0x80041404

    Authentication failed on the network of the social network site.

    0x80041402

    No connection is available to connect to the social network site.

    0x80004005

    General failure error.

    0x80041403

    The OSC provider denied permission for the resource

    0x80070057

    An invalid argument was passed to a function.

    For the detailed list of Outlook Social Connector Provider Error Codes are listed at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff759376.aspx

    Video: Role of a Software Architect in today’s world

    • 2 Comments

    Recently viewed this interview - Brian Prince, Principal Developer Evangelist at Microsoft, and Juval Lowy, Software Architect & Principal at IDesign as they discuss the role of an architect in today's world. Juval breaks down how the role of an architect has evolved over the years from applying engineering principles and practices to software systems to now also taking an active leadership role in the process and in technology. Today's architect does less of showing developers "how-to" but instead showing more what to do in specific scenarios.

    I like the following excerpts which I liked from the interview: “you can copy and paste the code but are you know whether this is right to do in your context”, “architect should constant likely at the technical aspect of the project”. This is a great interview to catch if you're headed down this career path!
