drawing anywhere onscreen by using transparent window?
I am looking for an example of how to create a transparent window that I can
position anywhere on the screen and draw to it using the GDI. So basically
it would look like I am drawing on the screen over top of everything, but
really I am just drawing to my transparent window.
Anyone know how to do this and/or know where there is an example of how to

We just upgraded a 2003 server to 2008r2 , AD tells me it is a 2003 server.
Should we reset the account?
As i never do inplace upgrades i haven't seen that before, but as you don't
talk about problems or errors, check with dcdiag /v and repadmin /showrepl,
i will be sure an account reset wan't help. The shown OS belongs to a kind
of attribute reading which seems not functioning correct in your case.

...Transparent bitmap in dialog box
I want to display a bitmap in a dialog box. I use the resource editor to
specify the bitmap. How can I make the bitmap transparent? For example; all
white areas should have the same color as the dialog window.
I remember seeing examples on how to do this but for the life of me I now
cannot find them!
Try looking at:

The client receives an e-mail from his secretary with two attachments,

different data. He wishes to send the attachments to someone else, so
he creates a new message, then copies and pastes file1 and file2 from

message, he then sees that file2 is now the same size as file1. Upon

Publisher 2003 will open 2000 files. Usually when you cannot it will have to do with
your anti-virus application. If you have Norton, disable script blocking, if that
doesn't do it, in Norton, options, disable Office Plug-Ins as well.
