    Surgical removal of Q890175

    • 5 Comments
    In January we released the Beta version of a new QFE format ( Q889402 ). This format was basically a rollup of all previous SP1 security QFEs. For the same month we also released the security QFEs in their previous format ( Q890175 ), with the idea that if customers had problems with the rollup QFE they could uninstall the package and install the “standalone” versions of the fixes without delay. However...

    Get your snakeoil here and fix all your Codepage problems

    • 0 Comments
    Same thing I discussed yesterday about the Fonts issue applies to CodePages as well. Click this link to download a zip called “Just_CPs”, use it as a troubleshooting tool when text is not being displayed correctly in your third party apps or control panel applets. Again, this won’t contain codepage components from MUI packs, you’d still have to manually add those (or modify this macro to add...

    Lotsa Fonts

    • 0 Comments
    If you follow the XPe newsgroup you’ve seen the issue again and again. A company has a custom app or control panel applet they’re componentizing and everything seems fine except for a pesky little issue with the displayed text. Displays fine on Pro, but on their XPe runtime it "no worky". Either the text is the wrong size, wrong font, disappears off the edge of the button or worse. What’s worse...

    Microsoft Tips Plans For Longhorn Embedded?

    • 1 Comments
    "Tips Plans"? Um, whatever; here's an article from TechWeb that tries to decipher some of our comments in yesterday's online chat. Made the internal MS newswire's top headline, good grief. Mike Hall has an additional discussion about it here as well , but with a CE twist of course <grin>. On the subject of Longhorn, here's an eWeek article today " Why Longhorn Matters " with Jim Alchin's views...

    EWF errata

    • 1 Comments
    #1. In the Help documentation released with XPe SP2 and on the MSDN web page there is a typo in the section called “ Configuring EWF RAM Reg Mode ” that may be causing some confusion. The user is instructed to add a number of registry keys, however one of these has a trailing period that should not be there, specifically: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{71A27CDD-812A-11D0...

Man these MVPs are coming out of the wood work now, god bless 'em! <grin> Basically the Q&A goes something like this: Customer : Dude, I've got hundreds of devices i'm planning on shipping out, i've got questions on the deal with the PIDs ....
