Just to announce that Malaysia SharePoint User Group (MySpug) has our own URL and website hosted by Office Live at http://spugmalaysia.org
Look forward for more features inside Office Live to enhance the feature while at the same time I got to plan how to consolidate the websites in Facebook and ISPA into spugmalaysia.org
When you try to install a ClickOnce VSTO application you got the follow error saying your .NET Framework version is not correct (however Windows 7 ships with .NET 3.5 SP1)
Thanks to a blog post from the VSTO product team, I realize that Windows 7 RC left our a file in C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5\RedistList
When I start up my Windows 2008 VPC, I see there is a FrameworkList.xml file inside
So I copy it out from my VPC, then I restart Visual Studio (it is not mentioned in the blog) and republish the VSTO app. The installer is now working!
A lot of complains gone out in the web pass week after MOSS SP2 was released. For a number of customers, after they installed the service pack they notice the server license becomes a trial license and will expire in 180 days. You can check it out by going to Central Admin site and look out for Upgrade and Migration section, look for an option called Convert Licence Type. If you are impacted, you will see a the word Office SharePoint License Trial
There is nothing much to panic according the the knowledge base article 971620 here as this ‘bug’ in SP2 does not corrupt your data, nor does it impact your MOSS functionalities (unless you don’t enter the license number after 180 days). What you need to do is just to reenter the license number
This is something I notice because I got a VPC built by a friend that seems to be slow even with Hardware Virtualization enabled. Then I check out he display setting properties and realize the color quality has been set to 16bit while my host machine is running at 32bit.
I feel like things are faster now after setting the color quality to 32bit on the guest VM.
