In my last post I mentioned that I need to reduce the size of my application to enabled easy demo downloads. I was testing SQLite because of the small footprint (less than 250 kilobytes), and because it needs no setup, just xcopy the dll.SQLite has a lot of nice features, but it lacks stored procedures support. Currently I have my database interaction ......

Microsoft is conducting a survey to know ISV's opinion about runtime deployment needs. Maybe this is a final step to decide the deployment strategy of the .NET Runtime 2.0.

I’ve been developing custom software for a number of years using .NET Framework and MSDE. In this scenario I’ve never had any problem deploying MSDE or .NET Framework. Customers just launch the setup program from the CD and the .NET Framework is deployed if needed. Now I’m trying to move from one-time projects to develop a software ......

I've tried to replace the original Windows Notepad with this one. But as soon as I overwrite notepad.exe, Windows restores the original file. I've found (google) the following solutions: - Backup a copy of c:\Windowd\notepad.exe- Disable System Restore- Replace notepad.exe- Enable System Restore or - Create backup copy of c:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe - Change ......

NUnit 2.2 has been released. If you plan to use it with Visual Studio 2005 beta 1, <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.40607" /> in the <startup> section of the config files (nunit-gui.exe.config and nunit-console.exe.config) must appear in first position. Happy testing ......

This is my very first post.

Although English is not my primary language, I will try to post in English most of the time, just to improve my skill.
So... Hello world!

There's a bug in Outlook 2003 SP1 that was driving me crazy. The bug can appear when multiple email accounts are configured. I started to recieve emails in one account that no one should known about. Then I realized that Outlook was sending my email using a random account. I couldn't believe it so I started to send me e-mails using diferent accounts ......

I wrote a generic class to browse through an application activity history, like a browser history (go back, forward, etc.). The class has been working fine until I have used a struct. This piece of code fails: T current; public void AddPage(T newPage) { if(newPage==null) throw new ArgumentNullException("newP... if(current!=null) // <-- this fails ......

Back in 2004 I wrote a small command prompt utility, called SqlDoc, to document SQL Server databases. I posted that tool to CodeProject. I wrote it for my own use and soon I found it extremely useful. The idea of improve that tool and even transform it to a commercial product was rounding my head for a long time. This summer I've spent many hours to ......
