If I close the program, the application crashes with all the normal bull crap about recovery and bla bla.. end result is that word remains broken. After much research and mucking around (save you all some time) I found that you have to reinstall. Repair is just a moving progress bar connected to nothing, as I have never seen the repair install process actually do anything useful. But what I am excited about this time is that I worked out the cause. If MS word is open with a document that is not saved, and the operating… Read More »Microsoft Word 2007 Crashes – Why?

Hyper-v Guest OS Failed to start – Failed to create memory contents file

When trying to start a Hyper-V server we received this error. Failed to create memory contents file ‘F:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Hyper–V\Virtual Machines\….(some numbers)…\..morenumbers.bin’ of size 2048MB. The solution for this problem is simple. Make more space available on the drive with the Hyper-V VHD file. The message is indicating that the drive has run out of space. It would be nice if Microsoft could dumb it down.

Silverlight 3.0 OOB doesn't auto update in my DotNetNuke Module

But we ran in to a snag when testing the auto updating feature. Turns out this auto updating feature isn’t so auto coming from beta to RTM. After some hunting around the new classes available in the framework the following thrown in your App.config.cs will ensure in its simplest way your OOB app will be auto updated. private void Application_Startup(object sender, StartupEventArgs e) { // check for new version if OOB if (Application.Current.IsRunningOutOfBrowser) { Application.Current.CheckAndDownloadUpdateAsync(); } } private void Application_Startup(object sender, StartupEventArgs e) {
