Session mix-up issue
We ran into a strange issue 2 days back in our client's production
environment. A remote user, logs in and finds out that the data available in
the web page are from a different user. The client environement is having
..net 3.5 running on Windows 2003 server connected to an Oracle 10g DB. The
web server is on NLB and in a DMZ. The sessions are maintained In proc.
We analysed the IIS logs and the network logs for that duration and were not
able to conclude if this was a security issue or a genuine application

I am trying to create a timer inside an MFC extension DLL. For some reason
the timer creation is:
1. Crash the application if I use CWnd::SetTimer and
2. Never being called inside the DLL if I use ::SetTimer
What does crash mean in terms code? Did you debug and see what is the

WHY do the rules in Outlook 2003 keep changing the accounts they are to
"When message arrives through MYACCOUNT@HERE.COM move it to the MYACCOUNT
"When message arrives through ANOTHERACCOUNT@HERE.COM move it to MYACCOUNT
- These rules were manually entered by me, not imported from OE6.
- This is a fresh installation of Win XP Pro SP1
- Only action in OE6 was to import the old email account settings and
contents through the Transfer Settings Wizard. The Outlook 2003 was
installed and account info imported.

I have a problem that I can't seem to resolve. I have an ActiveX
control written with ATL.
The problem is that when I fire an event from within PThread that I
have created everything works fine but it leaks 2 thread handles each
time. The thread exits OK though. If fire the event without the
PThread then it works fine without the leaky handles. The only problem
is that for some reason I cannot call other functions from within the
COM from the client code.
Any body got any ideas what is leaking and how to get around it?
The relevant code is:
void conn::dostuff(...problem invoke an MFC callback function from Non MFC app
i am having problem invoking an mfc callback function from a non mfc
any samples that I can look at?
What is happening is when I call function (not callbacks) in this MFC
dll from my non MFC app it works fine. But when i try to invoke the
callbacks nothing seems to happen. It doesn't fail/not exception.
When i cut and paste the same code into an MFC app (ie; call the mfc
dll from and MFC app) the callbacks get invoked without any problem.
Now my question is do i need to do something different as i am calling
it from a non mfc app?like a message map? if so how do i do that?
Stupid question maybe - does VS2005 have full mfc capabilities? If I'm
comfortable with VC++ 6.0 will there be any changes I have to make in the
way I write code (unmanaged that is)?
Also, is it possible to use C++ .dll's for web applications? Or anything
written in VC++ for that matter?

Microsoft Office Publisher 2003 and older are critical about printer

the problems you are encountering.

I'm trying to create an ActiveX control in MFC.
I have a library which was provided for the development of an MFC program
I made a sample ActiveX and included the library under
Project->Settings->Link Tab but after building the ActiveX and viewing the
control in Test Container, no methods were exposed??
Am I doing something wrong or will the library NOT work with an ActiveX???
This is a difficult question to answer. First of all, you should try to
build the ActiveX without the static lib, and see if any methods are
exposed. If that is the case...MFC (VS2008SP1) app deploying
I've created app using MFC in VS 2008 SP1, when tested on other

so I've decided to build msi setup deployment. My first issue is
weather to use merge modules or redistribute re-dist packets (which I
would download from MS). Then (if I would go for later solution) I
would need to resolved next few steps:

In my application I have dynamic tooltips in several lists. We display
certain items which can have notes or jpeg previews, and if an item has
a note or preview we just display an icon. When the user goes over such
icon, a tooltip should show the note or the image.
What I did to implement this is the following: I set a tooltip control
on the whole client area of the list. Then I overloaded the
OnToolHitTest function and determine whether the user is over the right
column AND if there's a note or preview. If none is found, I return -1
otherwise the control's ID with Get...How to accomplish mixed page orientation?
How can I have some pages with portrait and some pages with landscape
orientation in the same visio file?
In the File > Page Setup dialog, go to the "Page Size" tab and make sure
that "Same as printer paper size" is not checked.
When printing, you'll need to change the printer orientation to match the
page that you want to print. This is only necessary if you're running a
version of Visio older than Visio 2003.

I have overloaded new and delete operators in a library that I use in
every program I create. Everything is fine EXCEPT when I use my
library in a MFC project.
My overload functions are :
void *operator new(size_t size)
return my_alloc(size) ;
void operator delete(void *ptr)
The functions my_alloc() and my_free() are just calling malloc() and
free(), but in debug version they add size counter and special data
that are used to verify memory leak and buffer overflow.
All this works perfectly well in non-MFC projects, but when I try

I have an MFC MDI app. For discussion purposes, we can assume it has a Main
Frame, an MDIChild window, and a 'floating' tool window. (The tool window has
the following style flags set: DS_SETFONT, DS_SETFOREGROUND, DS_FIXEDSYS,
WS_POPUP, WS_CAPTION, WS_SYSMENU, WS_THICKFRAME, WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW.)
I derived a drag-handler class from COleDropTarget, one for the Main Frame
and one for the tool window. I've overridden the OnDragEnter(),
OnDragLeave(), OnDragOver(), and OnDrop() methods. I've declared one of these
as a member/field in each of the Main Frame and tool window clas...Purchasing Mix & Match Tables- what do you think???
Microsoft should add a Mix & Match table for purchasing. It would act
the same way it would for the sale of an item only it would help
calculate the Purchase Orders.

A purchase order report would calculate the products needed to reach the
This would be an priority trigger over the ROP.

Q164166 states that an assertion may occur in wincore.cpp when a service
launches a mfc application.
Well, frankly, I can't reproduce this behaviour.
Some time ago I made a service which is able to launch any win32
program, mfc apps, too.
Is the KB article out-of-date?
I think the operative word is "may" as opposed to "will."

That's not legal C# syntax. Are you trying to refer to some arbitrary

When I try to design a new form in A2007 it is always maximized and the
Min/Max buttons do not show despite the appropriate property settings.
Furthermore I cannot change the value of the Moveable property, it is locked
to No. However forms designed under A2003 and brought forward behave as
expected. (The exception is that the Moveable property is set to Yes for
Modal, Pop-up forms but the Min/Max buttons still do not show.)
Another symptom is the the Windows category does not show on the Ribbon.
