having problems using performanceCouter


i've made a program that shows the CPU idle time using the performance 
counter, using Visual C# .
however, from some reason, it works on any computer other than my home PC . 
i've searched on the net but couldn't find what causes it.
what i get is an exception that if is not caught, closes the program. here's 
a picture of what i get while debugging:
what i think is that maybe some service of windows (that the performance 
counter needs) doesn't work well(or is just disabled) .

my computer runs on Windows Xp sp3 32bit home edition,updated as much as 
possible (to the official updates) .
please help me. i'm kinda a newb at C# (but i do know Java quite well) .

btw, i still don't get any email notifications for new posts, even if i 
choose to get them.

it seems that .net framework had something wrong in its installation. i've 
tried to re-install it in many ways, but with no luck. this is why i had to 
re-install windows from scratch. now it all seems to work fine.
however, i still wish to know how to monitor the network bandwidth using the 
performanceCounter. a way that will work on any computer, and not just hose 
with a specific network card.

.rc files problem
Hello, I face some problem with .rc files in my project. Whenever I attempt to change the .rc files through IDE then the file gets totally altered despite the change being very small. It inserts some version information along with some other stuff like word 'DISCARDABLE' ( at n number of places) in the file. I change it in Microsoft Developement Environment 2003, version 7.1.3088. When I try to build the project with this changed resource, I get the error below, "fatal error CVT1100: duplicate resource . type: VERSION, name:1 , language: 0x0409 " "fatal error LNK1123: ...

Problems with MSG files
My organisation is currently running a mixed environment of Office 2000 and Office 2003. I have a user with Office 2000 who is trying to open msg files saved to a network share (i.e. in file system, not in Outlook) by a user with Office 2003. When she double clicks to open these files she gets the message 'Unable to Read Item'. We can get around this by right clicking on the msg file in the file system, choosing Send To Mail Recipient and then double clicking the msg attachment place in the new mail message. Can anyone let me know the cause of the problem and whether there is a solu...

Sending Mail from Access using Outlook
I have a contact database in A2000 which I have set up to use the SendObject method to send the same e-mail, through O2000, but individually addressed to around 500 contacts on the database. Outlook is run direct from my PC. Having no exchange server, for each of the 500 messages, I get the 'A program is trying to send ...' message and have to click 'Yes'. This then adds around 20-30 minutes to the mailing. Can anyone advise on how this can be done better ? Also the default text is plain text which loses some of the formatting I have set up. Can this also be changed ? TIA, Alan...

Using text in a Form to run a Query
I run a query every day against our company database to pull in specific information. I then store this information locally in my Access db. To save on space, once I'm done reviewing a record, I delete some of the fields to keep the db space low. My problem is that in the future I may have to retrieve these fields. I keep the ticket number in the Access db the same as our company database (they both have the exact same format). I create a form so that tickets can be inputted and then try to retrieve them from the company db, but it doesn't work if I try to retrieve multiple ...

Can you use multiple vlookup's to generate one answer?
I need to look up 3 different matches to generate an answer, and I was unsure of how to do this? As an example. I need it to match the piece of fruit, the state it was grown in, and the season, and then for it to return to me who the seller is. In the spreadsheet there are multiple variations of these combinations. Can this be done, what would the formula look like?

Printing problem in excel
Hello, I have a excel file which is formatted in such a way that 1:1 print matches the physical labels.( We have adjusted the height & width of cells.) Now my problem is when we print this excel from two different machines, prints are different, even though it is printed on same printer. My doubt is that it is related to aspect ratio/ screen resolution. When we print it from a machine with 17" square ( regular ) monitor prints are okay, but when we print is from machines with wide monitors prints are off. Can this happen? or am I missing something. Thanks in Advan...

deleting messages using M drive
Does anyone know if it is safe to delete individual messages by going into the M drive and deleting messages like you would delete files in a directory? Thanks, Mario Using the M:\ drive to do anything other than view the data is not suggested. If there is another way to delete the specific items, I would suggest you use it instead of the M:\ drive. This is why in Exchange 2003 we have removed the M:\ drive mapping. --Chris ============================================================================ ==== This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights....

Problems with 11.4.0 updates
I have tried several times to update Office 2004 with the 11.4.0 updates. Each time, I get as far as a screen that tells me that the program is "searching for programs to update." The rainbow disk spins forever, and I finally when I go to force quit the update, I am told it is not responsive. For what it is worth, I have upgraded to Leopard and use Firefox. I would appreciate any thoughts!

Unable to use two licences on two linked computers
Hey all, I have OS10.4.9 in my business mac network, and I installed Office X on the server and the reception computer. Initially it was the same licence and as others have described, I could not use both programs at the same time. However to improve our office efficiency, I bought a new copy of Office X today, and installed it. However it still won't let me use both versions at the same time even though now I have two licences! Why is this? The Microsoft website is not forthcoming, and they don't have any help lines to call. I can't find anywhere to input my new product key,...

2nd Attempt
I have recently been having difficulties with sending emails. When I make a reply and hit send the email saves to the outbox but does so in bold normal type and refuses to send. Sometimes if I make a new msg, copy by pasting everything and then save, the email saves to outbox in italics. This is "normal" I believe. The email goes out OK then. This seems to have started spontaneously. Anyone know what is happening and why. Perhaps more importantly how do I fix it? -- Jerry ...
