Administrator vs User
When I installed Windows on this new hard drive, I never set up a user
account - just administator - and used no passwords. That is the way it is
on other two hard drives. For 3 days, until I updated Windows, I never had
to log in. Now after updates I have only one choice to log in - that is as

I have just upgraded my home version of Office. I run 2007 on Vista. At
the office where I use a laptop, we have Office 2003 and XP. I use Outlook
on both configured to the same e-mail address. I have two questions:
1. I have marked the option on both systems to leave messages on the server
so that I can read new messages from either location. While messages I pick
up at the office appear in my home inbox, messages that I download to my home
computer do not appear in my office outlook. Is there something else I can do?
2. I have also tried to import my home address book into my offi...Psexec vs MFC application
I am having problems starting an MFC application in remote using
psexec (from http://www.sysinternals.com/). It works well with most
applications (ex: notepad.exe), but it creates problems with MFC
applications. The application starts, but it aborts with an
"Application Error" saying "Windows cannot continue from this
We then wrote our own psexec-like tool to spawn remote applications,
but we have the same problem. The way psexec (and our tool) works, is
by starting a service on the remote computer, which then waits for a

I have upgraded from Publisher 2000 to Publisher 2003.
In a Publisher 2000 document that is an 11 x 17 landscape document page with
each half of the document page showing the contents of an 8.5 x 11 sheet. In
a printing process (for hard copy to do edit checking) I would have a page
property set up for an 8.5 x 11 portrait output. When the 11 x 17 document
page printed the results was two 8.5 x 11 sheets each with 1/2 of the 11 x
17 document page, which is what I desired.
I have yet to find a means in Publisher 2003 to accomplish this. Can you

I know that it is possible to write ActiveX control under Visual Basic and I
think that you can also do it under Visual C++.
In this condition if you write an ActiveX control with the same
functionalities in Vb or in C++, will it be slower with Visual Basic ?
Does the ActiveX control inherit the slowness of VB ?
Last question : is it really more difficult to do it with VC ?

I hope someone can help me with this. I have been out of the loop on pocket

need to know if this shortcoming has been fixed. This is what I need.
Regular MS Outlook had a wonderful feature that Pocket OUtlook did not. IN

I have an E2k3 SP1 enterprise edition server. Whenever I reboot, the IMAP4

How do I make it start automatically?
How is the service set up - to start manually or automatically? Also, I'd
check the dependencies the service has. It may be that it's trying to start
before the other services have completed starting.

I receive a number of tab delimited text files which I need to convert
to Excel spreadsheets. Each file is similar in format: the first line
contains only one entry which is to become the "title" of the report.
The second line contains column headings (always the same) and the
remaining lines contain the variable data; every column in every row
always has a value.
When I format the spreadsheet manually I select A1:M1, Format Cells, and

Hello, I am new to windows development. I was curious if someone could
give me a brief summary of each of the topics? .NET, MFC and Win32API.
Also, someone told me that not many people use the MFC anymore, and
everyone programs with .NET. is that true?
My two cents:
Win32 API is the interface (functions) that Windows exposes so you can
create your applications (Application Programming Interface). This was the
way to program apps back in the day with C. To make programming easier,
Microsoft developed MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes) to make Windows
programming easier, and it worked...
