That's the exact problem...To give some background...We had in our company two groups (with a certain fading between them) one for the desktop development and one for the web...Now, with the new version we abandon the desktop and move all the functionality to the web...The leader of the desktop group try to ensure, he will not became obsolete (and this is foolish, as his knowledge of that part of system remains relevant) he picks subject that are relevant to the new technology stack and implements them (cache, authentication ans some) on his own, without knowing too much about the web (he got's his ideas from Google)...I do not want to dump him, so I have a big dilemma how to tell boos he has to stop it (as he not aware of the situation)...
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
Granted, that's a sticky situation, but if you chat with whoever's in charge of the architecture, and discuss the idea of putting together "Grand Scheme" diagrams and white papers, it might help to nip off any wrong directions in a slightly nicer way than (what will look like) running to the boss.
If the guy's acting out of paranoia (or out of desire to improve his position) things are likely to get heated (or backstabby), if you don't work it with his feelings in mind.
Sit back and work out a rational approach toward, shall we say, getting everyone to pull in the same direction. There's always an intelligent approach that avoids anyone getting put down, and that allows everyone to feel secure in what they're doing.

Windows form can rob company of vital data, unscrupulos users can steal windows form application .exe pirates. Or worse, decompiles the .net pseudocode. But from a risk standing, web application allows all user data and usage recorded to detained the cloud (opens new revenue stream from leveraging recorded usage), and disables stealing the executable.

This is probably going to come down to the way your boss likes to be communicated with, so it's difficult to offer a suggestion.
(1)Sometimes it's best to just mention your concerns, in person or by email, so that you are covered when and if it all goes pear-shaped. Sometimes the boss needs to be allowed to screw up so that they can become aware that they need to consult you more closely next time.
(2)Do a Columbo [^]and just drop the idea in as you leave a room or meeting, just when they are at their weakest - Mwahahaha!

I'm self employed now, so take the following with a grain sf salt - it worked for me though. When I was dealing with HR, I made sure to growl a lot while talking, and stand in front of the only exit. There's a kind of sociopath that will only act with some consideration if they realize that their skeletal integrity is at risk, because they're the sort of people who would do that to others if given the chance. I don't beat up people at random, but you can bet that at least some sociopaths would if they thought they could get away with it - use it against them. Not to mean that all HR folks are sociopath, but you do get quite a few.
Someone (who shall remain nameless) has managed to completely remove onedrive from my laptop and I can't get it to reinstall even after spending quite some time trawling the interweb.
Anyway, the only reason was looking is because I had an email from MS telling me that I was about to lose some space and that I'd have to upgrade to Office365 (free for one year) and get 1TB of space. After that, a couple of bucks a month.
Now, I could just use the web interface but I was quite happy to use the desktop app.
I think the only recourse is to refresh windows. Don't really want to do that.
Anyone know of another way to install the app? (I've tried onedrivesetup.exe - it does nothing).
Much appreciated if anyone does know how to reinstall the app painlessly.
Haha! Not only is it back, I've paid for extra storage (1.99 for 50GB). More than I need (today) for images and documents. If I get to the point where that isn't enough I can get 1TB. Seems to be as good as any other cloud storage app.
It seems to work pretty well and may put my NAS drive out of business.

The Scottish vote used the same method as all other UK votes. Paper and pencil! The Government was afraid enough to promise all manner of things (some of which they've even had to implement) in the final week of the campaign.
