VSS wasn't starting properly and SQL backups were going astray, did the usual checks and noticed that the OS partition that it was sitting on wasn't active, so without thinking I just made it active, (DELL server with a small partition marked RECOVERY that should be the active one), soon as I did it, I looked at it properly and beat my head against the desk, question is, if I just remark the RECOVERY partition as active, should that then solve it again or am I going to have to mess about with diskpart next time I reboot the damn thing?
I am trying to eliminate all compiler-warnings of a given project. I'm stuck with the warning below;
Processing COM reference "AXDBLib" from path "(somepath)axdb20enu.tlb". Interface 'IAcadShadowDisplay' is marked as [dual], but does not derive from IDispatch. It will be converted as an IUnknown-derived interface.
Ideally, I would like to understand how to rectify it, but if that is not possible, I'd like to surpress it.
After years using USB I feel really stupid asking this. My LCD connected to Arduino powered via USB started flickering after I changed PC. I checked the port (hub) and it is set to 100mA. I have no real reason to think that my hardware should be using more than 100mA, but my real question is - <b>can the USB port power setting be changed ( on XP) </b>? I think the LCD back-light LED is eating most of the power, unfortunately I cannot control its intensity. Bummer.
I have a Win8 PC with a Win7 virtual machine (VirtualBox) where I do development because we use VS 6.0. (Yes, I know, hard to believe.) Anyway, each time I do a build, I have to delete other builds, to free up disk space. It is getting to the point where soon I will have no free disk space. It looks as if Windows Updates are expanding the OS. Is there anything I can do? Is there a folder with unwanted OS update files?
I can expand the virtual disk, from the current 80GB, but that is only a temporary fix for obvious reasons. I have to have SQL server etc on the virtual machine, which take up quite a few GB.
Friends,I am working on a project....and in that project i have to take scanned image of finger with the help of fingerprint scanner.....and this image will be used as a password to log in the site.....so plzzzz..tell me how to store images in database..and how can i check the scanned image of finger of user with other scanned images
I have found that for linux it is possible to use vga, hdmi and other video connector's ddc's i2c ports to program and communicate with periphial devices. I have also found that apparently no one has been able to do it for windows, with the exception to nicomsoft. Nicomsoft has software that I have verified can read the i2c ports and not just access edid registry. I have an accelerometer connected and when I run the software it can detect a device at it's address. So I know it is possible but I have no idea if it is possible to use windows to do it. I know windows video port driver can call the miniport driver and get pointers to i2c callback structure containing explicit controls of the clock and data lines. The problem is it does not seem to export any of these pointers to anything else, like a user api let alone another kernal mode driver. I have considered that it might be possible at a hardware level were I have found out the intrcacies of the hardware, I have even seen an example of a video miniport driver on this site. I have an amd laptop which uses the bolton fusion controller hub which has vga ddc i2c ports. If you search amd docs for bolton fch you can find the documentation. basically I know the hub's i2c ports physical pins which my guess are both strung out to the hdmi and vga port's on my lap top. I have alos looked up the hub's general pupose i/o registers and it appears that they correspond to the pins. For instance ddc_i2c_scline is gpin70 and the data gpin71. the gpio registers are numbered correspondingly except the decimal pin number is changed to hexidecimal for the register. I can find the memory offset. My question is now, can I call gdi's function to map video memory to the process virtual memory, then write to these registers, turning them on and off? It is difficult to tell just what perspective on the memory I will have. Also if this worked, it would not be platform independent and would only work for pc's with bolton fusion controller hubs. Nicomsoft's program seems to be platform independent so either it wrote drivers for all common hardwares or it is using windows video port driver somehow? I have been working on this for several months and if someone could please help it would be awsome. thanks.
