Thanks again. I had already handled everything to get it working as a background thread, but I WAS trying to figure out the best way to populate the treeview as needed. I was headed down the wrong path, and dummy nodes will even allow me to only display the expand element [+] on nodes with children, so that's a bonus.
I'm trying to install a .net Windows Service on a PC with WIn 10 running. Windows Defender is running, and this installation has to be done without turning it off. The setup will be called from another setup. We CAN addd the setup.exe to the list of allowed apps.
So, I've tried creating a VS installer Project by following this. It works in stat it sees to install, but the service istself doesn't appear in the Servics dialog.
So, if I manually turn on Real-Time Protection in Windows Defender and use InstallUtil, it installs fine. But with Real-Time Protection on it fails, so I'm trying to get the Installer to work.
I'm open to suggestions here.
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
I built a project payroll management system with vb 2012, MS Access 200 db, Crystal Report XI. In report section when I want to see a employee salary detail record for more than 2 year the report showing month year field not arranged like March_2019 than November_2016, January_2018 want to short by November_2016 than January_2018, March_2019. My access db table contain Month_Year format. So please help me to short the report.
Assuming you're storing the data in the correct data type - ie: as a date - then you need to sort by the raw date value before you format it. Otherwise, it will be sorted alphabetically, and "August 2019" will come before "January 2010".
If you're storing the data as a string instead of a date, then you don't stand a chance. Fix the data storage first.

Hello , I am currently working on a project which requires the use of a custom dll for authentication.
This dll is registered (so they told me) in the GAC of both the Production and Test environments.
The company policies state that you "shouldn't include the dll reference in your application's web.config file", that is, you shouldn't have something like :
<add assembly="" ....="" mydll=""> etc.
in your web.config, at least for this dll I am talking about. They say, since it's registered in the GAC, the application will load it anyway.
The problem is , if you don't add the assemby reference in your web .config , the application is not going to find it , no matter what they say.
Since I am sure the dll is actually registered in the GAC, my question is :
shouldn't the application be able to load the dll anyway , no matter if you add the reference in the web.config or not ?
I was convinced that, adding the reference to the project, the dll 's GAC location would be stored in the application's assembly so that the application itself would be able to find the assembly in the GAC , no matter what the working system is , given that the dll is actually registered in the working system's GAC .
But I must be wrong.
What is the real way it works ?
The Global Assembly Cache stores assemblies specifically designated to be shared by several applications on the computer.
I was convinced that, adding the reference to the project, the dll 's GAC location would be stored
The GAC location doesn't need to be stored; it is managed by the .NET environment.
You will still need to add a reference to the dll. The difference is that you no longer have to copy the dll to the local output folder (which VS does for you, usually), but that the app will use the one that is registered in the GAC.

You mean that I still need the <add assembly="" ...=""> tag in the application's web.config ?
Doesn't the application's assembly contain a reference itself ?
The production cluster specialists in my company scolded me for putting the <add assembly="" ..=""> tag in the web. config, but then I showed them how it would behave without it, and they were baffled ....
