what i want to know is after download install will i be able to extract the setup of MS Visual c++ Express Edition


This sounds like you're downloading the ISO anyway, so I'm still not clear on what benefit you're getting.

Anyway in my folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express - ENU there is a file setup.exe that seems to be the actual VC++ Express setup, ir brings up the wizard and offers to repair or uninstall Visual C++ Express.  The file is 314KB but it might require the entire folder, which on my system is 111MB. That is at least small enough to fit most USB drives I see these days. As noted already, it would probably require some experimentation to see if it would work. Is there some target size you are aiming for to be able to carry the install to the other computer?

702
so this is second time u'r picking on me, with due respect n u aren't somebody to judge someone by its character at least by it post: but still i forgive u.....

I wasn't picking on you, I am honestly trying to understand the problem, although I understand where you are coming from, I think anything I say at this point is going to be interpreted in light of my response on the previous post. So maybe I shouldn't try. Is the main problem that there isn't a separate standalone (non-bootstrap) installer for Visual C++? (I think I understand the CD contains VB Express, C# Express, SQL Express, etc, things you don't need.)


703
Sorry, I'm probably making too many assumptions. It's probably doable, using a similar skill set to making an app portable making custom installs. Didn't realize you were paying that much for bandwidth, I pay a flat fee.

what i want to know is after download install will i be able to extract the setup of MS Visual c++ Express Edition , so that i can later use it to install on my pc. Since Express Edition is a freeware...i got many other links to Express edition with DVD iso with size 800/700 MB which i don't require.  Is it possible to extract the setup of MS Visual c++ Express Edition, backing the Registry is not a problem for me:

For all the time you would spend getting that working, I would go ahead and spend the 10 cents on the CD, unless your time is worth absolutely nothing. I'm serious.

705
Thanks for sarcasm to..:)

Sorry about that, I deal with a lot of passive-aggressive "confused" types in my day-to-day stuff, I took you as one of them and I was mistaken. I didn't see this thread going anywhere, but I'm glad Eóin was able to clear things up for you. :Thmbsup:

706
I dont think the APPEND and ASSIGN are useless cmd line

You should take that up with Microsoft then. Maybe they will write a custom version of DOS just for you.

707
Because some cmd line available for v 6.22 like APPEND,ASSIGN etc etc does not run in my version of DOS [Windows]

That's correct. They don't work in Windows 7 either. So you don't actually have a problem, unless there is a specific function you need that the older commands provided and you need a modern day equivalent.

As a former DOS 2 user, I just want to clarify, every Microsoft operating system ever has removed older dangerous commands and added new commands.

708
There's something in the air along a busy local road, and it's not just exhaust fumes: It's the smell of grilled steak, courtesy of what appears to be the nation's first scented highway billboard.

I apologize in advance for what surely is the worst Charlotte Observer headline since "Oldest Living Man Dead".
In one minute, my reaction went from "Hey, that's kind of cool" to "So, you can't really 'look away' from the billboard" to "Time to pass a NOSE ordinance." Also, although it's not exactly the smell of meat, some vegetarians might have something to say about it, too.

Yep, those are good reasons for the iPhone to wonder why it was ever born.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Any screencast for Clipboard Help+Spell?
« on: June 03, 2010, 09:07 AM »
I'm figuring it wouldn't hurt to ask if there is any screencast for CHS, since I see screencasts for other things. I have this installed but can't get in too much of a flow with it. I find the help file a bit confusing.

714
Updated original post with helpfile and abbreviated user guide including screenshots (which didn't seem to bump the topic to recent posts, hence this post).

715
erm, what are the differences?


This is discussed some in this topic and in this one.

716
Hm, 64bit Vista allowed unsigned kernel mode drivers? Not unless running in driver signing test mode :)

All I know is that I saw some Vista 64-bit wireless drivers for my old wireless card and that they didn't work in Windows 7 for the above reason.

EDIT: Could the signing be specific to the OS, so that to Vista they were signed, and to Windows 7 they weren't?

717
I went from Vista 32 bit with 1GB RAM to Windows 7 64 bit to 8GB RAM, and I went with the 64 bit version solely because of the opportunity to have enough RAM not to have to worry about RAM anymore.

Between the 32bit and 64bit apps on my system, I don't notice any speed difference, and certainly not "pauses or weird glitches."

I started to say there is not much of an advantage to going to 64-bit on a 4GB system, but on a 4GB system, I think 64 bit would see the full 4GB vs 32 bit only seeing 3GB, so it might actually be worthwhile.

By the way, DO check all of your drivers, including the chipset drivers for your motherboard and Google what others say about running Windows 7 64 bit on your motherboard (or off the shelf system if that's what you have.) Vista 64 bit DID allow 64 bit unsigned kernel mode drivers, Windows 7 64 bit DOES NOT. In fact, Google every piece of hardware you have because I'm not seeing a trial version of Windows 7 64-bit except for one that runs in a VM, and that won't help as far as testing drivers.

718
EDIT: The help file has been moved to my original pledge post and I am working on filling out the whole NANY template, also to be in the original post.

I have a teaser draft help file, hopefully this explains what I am trying to do. You'll notice the screenshots still refer to LaserTask instead of the new name TaskDaddy.

Everything in the helpfile has been implemented but poorly tested, especially since the big command line argument rewrite. Plus I am thinking how to really test it good, and create thousands of tasks, containing random printable and unprintable characters, in an attempt to break both TaskDaddy and Outlook itself*, otherwise read out of Outlook what it put in.

(Non-coder types can skip this part: In the back of my mind, I know I am going to have to delve into the object interface to fix the Outlook.au3 bug which forced me to turn off error checking. Dreading that part a little bit, or postponing it rather until I have some clarity in my mind. It may be something as simple as a method being called that doesn't exist in the Outlook object.)

Anyway, enjoy the help file! I hope someone takes a glance at it. Any feedback on my help file style is welcome, too. I think this is the first help file I ever made.

* On a non-production system, of course. :)


719
Mainly I am trying to get a feel for how many closet AutoIt3 scripters are lurking out there (hence I didn't ask about WSH, Perl, or any number of other scripting languages). From appearances this looks like an All-Autohotkey shop, but appearances can be deceiving.  I know I've seen one or two of you in the AutoIt3 forums.  Make yourself known! Are there coding snacks that will never be written because the person who has an interest in writing it is more comfortable with AutoIt3? (And it is respectfully requested if possible that this is not turned into a debate as to which is better, that seems to have been covered in previous threads)

^I spoke too soon. Now every time FARR starts I get this and FARR won't open:

I was originally going to post the troubleshooting log, but it looks like .log is not one of the allowed file types here ironically.

How do I disable the plugin for the time being?

Circle Dock / Re: CircleDock Hotkeys with 2 non-toggle keys

I have investigated this and found there to be an intermittent problem caused by some sloppy coding by my predecessor. I have fixed it for the next release.

Excellent.

Developer's Corner / Re: Recommend a general purpose IDE
« on: May 29, 2010, 04:42 AM »
I also don't consider myself a coder, but a lifelong coder wannabe. I don't really have a clue what the answer would be, but I noticed a few things.

up until now i've used whatever editor/IDE came with the package i was using. but now that it looks like i'm going to be doing more of this than i want to i'm in the market for a more general purpose tool.

First of all, by "in the market" do you mean you or your company is willing to pay money? (can't help you there, I haven't even looked at payware)

what i'd like is something that can handle c++, php, python, and probably java with equal aplomb.
So you have ruled out getting the best IDE for each individual language -- so noted. And you have ruled out having the most common language-specific application frameworks, libraries, templates, function calltips, and external tools already set up for you so you can get coding right away -- so noted.

I think C++ in particular benefits from the IDE developer's awareness of needs specific to that language. I wonder if you would consider shooting for one IDE for C++ and one for everything else.

folding is important to me because i often work on a small screen laptop
Fortunately, thanks to the Scintilla component, there's no shortage of code folding freeware editors these days.


. and multiplatform would be a major plus since i work on BSD and Windows workstations. having the same tool on both environments would simplify my life greatly.
Notepad++, which was mentioned twice (and I use it myself), is Windows only, although I've seen screenshots of it running under WINE. Consider SciTE, the editor by the author of the Scintilla component; it is multiplatform, one downside (to me) is that to configure the tiniest thing, you have to dig into the properties files and search the help to find out what each setting means. However SciTE is the only freeware editor I know that supports function calltips, and the only reason I know this is that SciTE4AutoIT3 set this up for me in the realm of AutoIT3 scripting.

Screenshot - 5_29_2010 , 6_05_20 AM.png

It's even able to suggest variables I created whenever I type "$" (AutoIt variables start with a dollar sign.) So my only suggestion is to give SciTE a spin and see if it is to your liking.

IZArc is freeware, too. I used 7Zip for a while, but there was something about the way 7Zip File Manager specifies destination paths that rankled me. However, if you use 7ZFM/7Zip, I highly recommend the 7-Zip Theme Manager -- and I'm reading that it is compatible with the 64-bit version now.

724
Got way off topic but ... why the heck does anyone want to use Winzip any more? Why not just download 7zip for free and have a much better product?

Exactly, that's why I use IZArc these days.

What's the Best? / What's the best: Wiki Host?
« on: May 26, 2010, 05:13 PM »
What's the most flexible wiki-specific hosting site, for people not wanting to host it themselves? (e.g.., PBWiki etc.)

Some characteristics to think about (I'm sure I've forgotten some):

- Is it ad supported or can you put your own ads?
- Wiki software used (MediaWiki or Proprietary)
- Cost if any
- Ease of editing (do non-technical people feel comfortable with it?)
- Spam prevention features
- Moderation features
- Types of content supported
