For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
You might want to take a look at the Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition[^], it is basically Professional under a free license (for small teams/student/private use/etc). I have it installed, and it comes with Office Developer Tools.
The installer you used installs to the Global Assembly Cache, which is why you can't find them.
There are a number of programs to help with finding libraries in the GAC, such as GAC Manager[^] (comes with an API) and GAC Explorer[^] (My preferred program). GAC Explorer can also copy assemblies out of the GAC. I am not sure if GAC Manager can do that.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
The metaphorical solid rear-end expulsions have impacted the metaphorical motorized bladed rotating air movement mechanism.
Do questions with multiple question marks annoy you???
Let say I want to write a simple document editor, say I want to make (yet another) Notepad2 app!!
How unrealistic an endeavor is that?
My particular problem is that creating FileStream to random location on the file system seem completely impossible!
In my case I am making some proprietary format file editor. I would like to use Windows store
API AND I would like to open previously open file when the app start and also save edited file when user press CTRL+S (without going through a file picker)
But this scenario seems to be a show stopper... since I don't have file access....
Am I missing something?
I am trying to migrate my utility library (formerly a plain .NET4.5 library) to a PCL library which supports both .NET 4.5 and the Windows Universal app (for Windows 10) app.
I got some issue working out why some things are working and some are not.
For example Task is fine. I can do Task.Run() on both .NET4.5 app (obviously!) and Universal app.
But Thread is not. new Thread() will fail to compile for Universal app.
Trying to use the documentation is of no help. In either project it send me to the same location! From which I am lead to believe that (System.Threading.)Thread class does exists! Though it doesn't! (in Universal app, that is)
Is there any tip / trick / reference (other than the compiler complaining) that will let me know in advance which .NET4.5 class will be supported in a Universal library and which is not?
hi my name is bigboy. im teaching myself c# and my goal at this point is to make a trading card game, in a console application due to no art skills, does anyone have any reads that would help me accomplish my goal, or a search option to find what im looking for.
Please, don't try to teach yourself C# by writing code: get a book, or a course, and work your way through it.
Writing code can get you to a point where you feel comfortable writing code - but you can miss out on huge chunks of language and framework which would make it a lot easier and more efficient. A structured book or course introduces each part in a logical sequence, so nothing gets missed out.

I'm replying to your direct comment because it's relevant to more that just you!
OK, so you have a budget to $0 - that doesn't mean you can't learn properly!
Yes, you could learn to fly a plane by watching a pilot do it and (provided you started off high enough) you probably be able to get it into roughly straight and level flight (and possibly even in the right direction). But...you'd be in real trouble when you approach an airport!
Development is the same: you can pick up some coding ability by "try it and see" but that doesn't mean that you know why you do things like that - go to QA and you will see hundreds of questions a week on the same subject "How do I fix 'Null reference exception'?" - all because they haven;t understood what a variable is, what an instance is, and they probably either ignored that bit or just glossed over it because it was boring. But if you know the basics, it's obvious what the problem is!
Learning by coding won't teach you much that is useful for developing your own applications: at best it teaches you how to create that application, and it's not obvious how that relates to the next one.
So...if you are doing this to get a job in the industry, find the budget for a book. Better, find the budget for a course. Or visit you local public library and see what they have, or can order. (My local public library can get any book in any county library in a few days, in a Welsh library in a week or so, and in England in a little longer. If it isn't held, I can request they purchase it for a small fee. You will probably find that yours can do much the same thing.
Look at Addison Wesley, or Wrox - they both do good (if very thick) books on the subject.

I have an asmx Web Service hosted on our secure website which is consumed from a c# library that is used by several WinForm desktop Applications.
Currently, I can only get to the ws by using the actual ip (instead of the web address) end the endpoints / bindings. This works wonderfully for our in network users, however we have out of network users as well.
I should add that I can access the direct url to the ws from out of network which shows the test page, however the tests all return errors (unless within network).
The error I get testing is that the request content-type is expecting xml but receiving html response. This just probably means it is returning an error instead of the xml content.
Has anyone else conquered this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated...
I have created a form in a tabcontrol -> tabpage, it has a contract format and I need to print it. So, I heard about PrintDocument but I don't really know how should I use it to print a tabpage because it has a large height and it should be printed on multiple pages. Any suggestions please? Thanks
That's what a PrintDocument is for - it allows you to select exactly what is printed, and where it is printed, in what font, what colours, etc.
What it doesn't do is "print a control" such as a tap page - because that's silly. The control is very unlikely to conform to the form factor of the paper being printed onto (and it'll have a "screen based" resolution rather than a "printout based" resolution, which is generally a lot, lot higher.
Well, which is the right way to print a form with textboxes, labels in a specific location in form? In that example it prints a text file. But in that way, it prints the whole windows form. Or, is there any third way? For example to send data in a word document?
