Fixing Subclipse in Eclipse

SneWs's picture

One annoying thing I see time after time is that Subclipse, a Subversion plugin in Eclipse is that it fails to use the native implementation. The fix is easy, just change to the Pure Java implementation and you're good to go without any annoying messages.
The error message you might get when trying to use Subclipse will look something like this:

ATI logo

It's finally here, the much improved openSuSE 11.3 release. And I have to say that the team behind it have done a fantastic job!

I've upgraded my main desktop to run the new OS and as usuall, the ATI prop. driver isn't updated to support the new kernel shipped with openSuSE 11.3. But no worries, a work around has already been published AND it allows you to download a pre-built RPM both for x32 and x64.

Compact Framework & Adding reference to System * problem

SneWs's picture

We've been having some problems with Compact Framework and referencing assemblies from the 3.5 release. The problem shows during compile time with a nice message like "Consider app.config remapping of assembly "System.Data, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=969db8053d3322ac, Retargetable=Yes" from Version "" [] to Version "" [c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v3.5\WindowsCE\System.Data.dll] to solve the conflict and get rid of all warnings."

SneWs's picture

It's finally starting to get close to the new openSUSE release, this time it's 11.3 that's on it's way out of the door. And it will be released on July 15.

NAUTIZ X5 - Camera Tweeks

SneWs's picture

The team ran into some problems using the C# CameraCaptureDialog class for taking pictures with the Compact Framework. When calling the ShowDialog() method it throws a OutOfMemoryException and the user is unable to capture a image.

To solve this problem, we tried to set the properties for Resolution and StillQuality for the CameraCaptureDialog but still no dice. It turns out that the OEM can force the settings written to the registry to override any properties applied for the CameraCaptureDialog class.

Disable Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH)

SneWs's picture

This only applies to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
Snip from MSDN on what FTH is:
The Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH) is a subsystem of Windows 7 responsible for monitoring application crashes and autonomously applying mitigations to prevent future crashes on a per application basis. For the vast majority of users, FTH will function with no need for intervention or change on their part. However, in some cases, application developers and software testers may need to override the default behavior of this system.

Boot from vhd files with Windows 7

SneWs's picture

With Windows 7, you can use the bcdedit tool to boot into vhd files. This is really cool and useful if you, like me work as a Developer or if you are a IT professional responsible for testing new technology.
