  • Blog Post: Sxstrace for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003

    I have received question about availability of Sxstrace for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Unfortunately this is not possible. The traces from sxstrace.exe really comes from Sxs.dll. Sxstrace simply tells sxs.dll when to trace, where to log, and then parse the log to a humanly readable form....

  • Blog Post: Title change

    Laterly, most of my topics have been Win32 stuff. Then I realize that the title " Junfeng Zhang's .Net Framework Notes " makes less sense now. Effectively now, the title of this blog becomes Junfeng Zhang's Windows Programming Notes Thanks for reading.
  • Blog Post: MSDN Wiki

    MSDN launched MSDNWiki a while ago http://msdnwiki.microsoft.com/en-us/mtpswiki/default.aspx I really like the idea of MSDN Wiki. An API is rarely just an API. There is an associated history, like the background, the design choices, the limitation, the alternative, usage pattern etc. Unfortunately when...

  • Blog Post: Brad Abrams --- API design hall of shame

    Brad thinks the API AppDomainSetup.ShadowCopyFiles is API design hall of shame. http://blogs.msdn.com/brada/archive/2005/11/17/494282.aspx I don't think Brad is fair here. At best, it is just a not-so-well-designed API. An API to be hall of shame should at least have one of the following problems...

  • Blog Post: Questions and Topics Suggestions

    I keep getting emails from folks. Most of the time, the questions folks asked are interesting to general audience. Some times I will have a new blog post to answer the question. But often I just hit reply, and missed the chance to share it with everyone. Thus I create this post. Please post...

  • Blog Post: Comment moderation

    Due to comment spam, I turned on comment moderation. When you post a comment, it won't be shown to public until I approve it. This sucks. But I have no choice.

  • Blog Post: 100 posts

    I started the blog late January this year, when the tide of blogging swept Microsoft. Half a year later, I hit a 100 posts mark. In between, I talked about Fusion, CLR, .Net framework, things I am interested in, things I think may help other people. Of the 100 post, the least read one is ...

    Error 1709 is that Microsoft installer is not registered. “msiexec.exe /regserver” should fix that.
