  • Blog Post: Cool Vista quick launch keyboard shortcut: Windows + <n>

    This is totally off-topic, and most people out there probably know this already (or do they?), but I love this Vista feature that I discovered by accident today, so I have to blog about it: There is a keyboard shortcut on Vista for launching the first ten apps in your quick launch toolbar, and it's documented...
  • Blog Post: No Flash in IE7 on Windows Vista? Here is the fix

    Until recently I was not able to see any flash content ( Soapbox videos, e.g. ;-) in my browser on my Vista machine. Adobe's installer site told me that everything was fine, but other sites complained that I either had not installed Flash, or turned off JavaScript (which is both not true). So the problem...

  • Blog Post: Vista RTM on my Toshiba M400: smooth update from RC2

    During the last couple of weeks, I was still using Vista RC2 on my M400 since I was on a roadshow, with all my demos built on that pre-release version, and I did not want to run the risk of ending up without a demo machine in the middle of the tour after a potentially failed update... So I waited until...
  • Blog Post: Windows Embedded Studio on Windows Vista - database issue & solution

    If you have played with SQL Server on recent builds (Beta2 and beyond) of Windows Vista, you might have noticed that database connections using Windows authentication usually fail because of UAC ( User Account Control ) - even if the account you are using is in the Administrators group, and regardless...

  • Blog Post: Hasta la Vista, Longhorn...

    :-) Yes, the OS formerly known as "Longhorn" got its first preliminary official name: Windows Vista . (Remember, we don't have a Beta 1 yet...) See the announcement here . I will still wear my "Longhorn" jacket at the PDC in L.A. - it will always be Longhorn for me...
  • Blog Post: Avalon & video drivers

    I was playing with some of the current Avalon stuff today when I noticed that videos in my Avalon apps were all displayed as black rectangles instead of the actual video content. I was wondering why (this should work just fine with my hardware - an ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo w/ 128 MB RAM, and...
  • Blog Post: Longhorn in 2006, Avalon + Indigo on XP/2003

    I'm currently in Bellevue, WA, attending a Microsoft event for us developer evangelists, and I'm just back into my hotel room from a meeting with Jim Allchin who gave us an update on the Longhorn roadmap - you can read the official press release here . (You can, as expected, find the first derisive comments...
  • Blog Post: Longhorn 4074 fries my CPU :-(

    Well, I got that fantastic Dell Inspiron 8600c (Pentium M 2GHz, 2 GB RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo w/ 128MB video memory) which runs XP in Virtual PC faster than most of my other machines do on hardware , so I thought this would be the perfect machine for the WinHEC Longhorn build, incl. DWM...

    Habe mich inzwischen wieder vom Technical Summit 2004 in Kassel erholt :-) Die Veranstaltung hat allen Beteiligten großen Spaß gemacht, und das Feedback der Teilnehmer gibt uns Recht (97% waren mit der Qualität der Vorträge zufrieden, 98% mit der Organisation der Veranstaltung...
  • Blog Post: Redmond again

    Arrived on Friday in Seattle, for a MS-internal event. Staying at the Doubletree Hotel in Bellevue, quite acceptable. The jet lag finally got me on Sunday afternoon; since then I'm in (kind of a) zombie mode ... :-) Anyway, there's quite some interesting stuff to see here, so I try to stay awake...

    I discussed this recently with a colleague. I can proudly state that I was right :-) Authoritative answer by Rob Relyea : " zammel ". Very cool, esp. since there is also BAML and CAML ...

  • Blog Post: Longhorny ;-)

    Got back safely from L.A. (despite the fires), cured the cold that plagued me during the PDC, and now I (as most oft the PDC attendees, I assume) am playing with the bits which were distributed at the event. Longhorn is fascinating, esp. the XAML stuff. (Hope to get some AERO soon ... :). Of course it...
