Abort file opening for invalid file
I need to open an ASCII file using Serialize() method. I want to add a
validity check (say, length of the file) so that the file opening
process will automatically abort (but not exiting the program) if an
"invalid" file is encountered. What should I do in order to implement
that? Thank you.

When I go to save my excel 2007 worksheet which is running in compatibility

Your Excel 2007 is not running in compatibility mode because of Vista.
Compatibility mode means you have opens a old Excel file made with a version
that pre-dates XL 2007
Form the Start menu open Excel. It will open with a blank XL 2007 workbook

Hi, Some people on the XP Discussion told me that Widows Vista only really
runs well if it has 2Gb RAM. I know that the Upgrade advisor states a lot
less, and that the Minimum system requirements is less also.
Is this 2Gb need/want true, in what cases, and why? Is it just that Vista
runs much smoother on 2 GB RAM?
Having 2gig of RAM is a lot better than having 1 GIG or even 512MB. Go for it and
you will not regret it

Unread Mail no longer displays the number of new unread mails; instead,
folders with new mails are displayed in bold. But when I click on Unread
Mail, I can read the mails that are new.
How can I get Unread Mail to display the number of Unread Mails, and the
folders containing new emails to NOT be displayed in bold?
What happens if you right click on the Unread Mail folder and click
properties? Is the "Show number of Unread Items" radio button selected?

To install a .NET app on XP so that it launches when the user logs in,
you had to do was add a folder named Startup to the User's Programs
Menu object the Setup project's file system, and create a shortcut in
that folder that runs the app's primary output.
This does not seem to work with Vista or Windows 7, apparently due to
the different location on the disk for the Start menu folder tree.

How BIOS or Windows knows that a disk drive is "removable"?
Is this returned by the drive itself, or determined by the BIOS, or ACPI?
I have a weird single board PC that needs an 1.8" drive of a rare type.
So I use a regular Sandisk CF card, with a CF to IDE adapter.
The BIOS sees it as a "removable IDE drive".
When I install WinXP or 2003 on this, the setup happily formats the card
and copies all the files - though it warned that can't create partitions on

versions of Windows for the last 5 years.
I compiled the programs on Windows Vista using VC++ 6.0. The 'win32 debug'

Is it possible to embed a signature in my x64 class filter driver? If so,
does this eliminate the need to distribute an associated catalog file?
If the driver is installed using an INF file, then a signed security catalog
file is required.
Legacy (non-PnP) drivers that do not use an INF file are signed by signing
the driver binary.
IIRC boot-loaded drivers must have the driver binary signed - possibly in
addition to having a signed security catalog file.
