Office 2010 and Basic Authentication on IIS fails to open documents
I have just upgraded my Office 2007 to 2010 (yes the RTM build) and am
running into some serious trouble accessing documents stored on a web server
or SharePoint server configured to only allow Basic Authentication.
Word opens as expected but does not do anything else (no prompt, no document
download, nothing). Accessing any Office document on a server or SharePoint
2007/2010 server that has e.g. Integrated Windows authentication enabled,
all is good I get prompted for credentials and the document downloads and
opens as expected and as in Office 2007.

I am using plink to establish an SSH session with a host.
I have developed some Windows code to manage the plink session.
I am using CreateProcess to start plink and various read/write
commands to communicate with plink.
I've tried to terminate plink with the commands to send a
Control C or Control Break to a session. That hasn't worked.
I've found an obscure note on another program that states the
problem may be that the progam (plink) does not have a console.
At the moment I've resorted to calling TerminateProcess to
end plink. The documentation states Termin...Performance problem in Vista Windows explorer if /SWAPRUN:NET is set on an executable.
I have rather big executables (about 25-35 MB). Because I want my
users to easily execute my application, I don't want them to install a
bunch of DLL's, just xcopy-install is OK for me (and my customers).
Because my software is often run from a network drive, and my
customers' networks are not always reliable, I link my executables
using the /SWAPRUN:NET option. This guarantees that the whole EXE is
loaded in memory before the application starts, and prevents crashes
if the network connection is dropped while my application is running.

I use Windows XP and IE 7 and suddenly one day I was unable to access

Here's my problem.
I've got a set of Excel files with monthly data which is updated every
month. So in January I only have Jan data. In February I have Jan and
Feb data, and so on.
The chart I have for this data always displays a full 18 months data
from October 2003 to March 2005, and as more data is added, the line on
the chart snakes its way from left to right.
These files are submitted to me from various sources. As a central data
collector, I now want to link these Excel files into a single Excel
file which will display all the charts in one place for convenience.

Can you set up an option so that when you print a report, it automatically

going to a 2nd line
You can modify the report with Report Writer and on the Report Definition
window change the Printer Orientation to Landscape. Don't forget to change
security to use the modified report.
You can also use Named Printers to change the printer properties to
landscape if the report is one controlled by Named Printers.

I need to link three Excel Documents into a master document that will reflect

but that allows only one person at a time to enter the data, we need to have
multiple people entering the data.
Let's try for the easy solution first... Are people entering data on
different worksheets, which are then captured on a 'master' sheet via
equations? If so, open the file (make a backup copy first!), click on one of
the input sheet tabs and select Move or Copy, then move the sheet into a New

I have a ControlBar(pParent) window and inside this

This pChild window is constrained to pParent's client rect.
The problem is that all the mouse messages are sent to the

to AfxWndProc(), if I click on the child window, a mouse
message targeting the parent window is generated(the
target window handle is the parent window). Maybe this is

This means I have no idea who has the file open....can anyone tell me why
