Chris would appreciate your help. If you could capture the codeproject cookies for him (the ones marked idtag, vk and lck). Also, try closing the browser and reopening without logging in manually to see if the auto log in kicks in.
The company I work for produces a software utility package for our OEM clients, and the executable must be personalised for each client. Does anyone have recommendations for a software package that can do the following:
Insert personalised binary information in the application, without requiring recompilation of the application
Will sign the application after the information is inserted (NICE TO HAVE)
Works on Windows and Linux (32- and 64-bit) executable formats
I don't know an existing utility. But if you have declared a block of fixed size static memory for your binary data in the application it can be replaced by a simple self written tool that looks for that (using a signature) and overwrites the data in the executable file. Afterwards you can sign the application as required.
Except for the signing, much like what I did to DOS's command.com file. You simply replace a code block with one of a size less than or equal to the existing block. If it includes items such as strings, you may have to consider that ASCII-Z terminator!
Brings back such nice memories - partly because I was so much younger.
Allen's book pulls you into the story and makes you think about the possibilities, invention, innovation, starting a business, building something.
Meanwhile, unfortunately, the Nadella book just didn't excite my imagination.
It is interesting that Allen was part of the team who really built the the stuff that built the business and Nadella is just a manager who was placed in the position.
This is very similar to Ballmer v Gates. Microsoft was driven by Gates but Ballmer was just placed in a position to manage a company.
However, I do actually think Nadella is a far better leader than Ballmer.
The contrast of the two books is quite interesting and I'm amazed at how interesting and well-written Idea Man is.
Have you read the two books? Or either?
