File I/O And Registry :: AVI Header - Program To Download And Play AVI Files The Files Are Large In Size And Long Time Wise

Dec 11, 2011

I wrote a program to download and play AVI files the files are large in size and long time wise. I have the files playing as they are being downloaded but i can't see how long the file is or seek reliably. i was reading that the AVI headers are in the last 512kb of the AVI file *why would't they put it at the start* lol so my question is is there a way to download the last 512Kb of the file i'm downloading. i have the Bytes Read and Length of the file while its downlaoding i'm just not sure where to go from there, or how to do it atleast. If i had the length in time of the Avi file i could set the trackbar to be able to seek properly. or if someone has an idea how i could get the time of the video by using fps and some math i could prob do it that way too but idk how i would tell how i can find how many kb are in the fps i'm sure it changes so think that way is't going to be reliable. how to get the last 512kb would be the best option not sure if it can be done even.

Determine OS Type For Wow6432Node Registry?

Oct 14, 2010

I need to check a value within the registry. The application (Cisco VPN) is a 32bit app so uses Wow6432Node when installed on 64bit operating systems.What would be the best method of selecting which string to use? Checking the OS for x64, attempting to read one and then the other if the first fails? Or is there a better method?

Dim keyName64 As String = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareWow6432NodeCisco SystemsVPN Client"
Dim keyName32 As String = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareCisco SystemsVPN Client"

Using .net 4.0 framework?:

Dim registryKey As RegistryKey
If Environment.Is64BitOperatingSystem = True Then
registryKey = registryKey.OpenBaseKey(Microsoft.Win32.RegistryHive.LocalMachine, RegistryView.Registry64)
registryKey = RegistryKey.OpenBaseKey(Microsoft.Win32.RegistryHive.LocalMachine, RegistryView.Registry32)
End If

Posting MIME Encoded Attachment To Ariba Supplier Network

Feb 10, 2010

I'm having an issue with trying to use VB.NET and the WebRequest object to post some cXML text and an attachment.I believe I am formatting the text of the data I wish to post correctly, as it matches samples Ariba has supplied. What I am uncertain of is if I am correctly using the WebRequest object to do the posting.I am setting the Method as "POST" and the ContentType as "multipart/mixed".I can successfully post cXML (using a ContentType of "text/xml") The message I get back from Ariba is "The document could not be parsed: Missing start boundary [ANCLS-741552]", however, as the following code shows, there is a start boundary.I have removed some proprietary data and replaced it with "...". Following the MIME text, I have included the relevant VB.NET code I am using.[code]

File I/O And Registry :: When To Close Files

Jul 24, 2010

I should mention that I'm mainly concerned with Random files.Which is the best method?

1.) Open file, manipulate data and immediatly close the file. (Which means doing this alot everytime data needs to be read, edited, deleted, or saved)

(2.) Open the file when the app starts and let it open for data manipulation until it's time to close the app at which time the file would be closed.

I was always taught option 1. The main reason at the time was to cut down on the chance for data corruption in the file or an outright loss of the file due to outside circumstances like power failure.

Retrieve Application Path For Associated File Type From Registry For Use With Shell Command?

Jun 17, 2009

I'm using VB.NET in Visual Studio 2008 in a Vista 64-bit OS. I'm trying to find an easy way (there must be one) to quickly retrieve from the registry the application file name and path to use in a Shell command to open a particular file. Specifically, I want the user in my app to be able to click on a PDF file and have the app open that PDF file using the application associated with PDF file types - Acrobat Reader, for example. Anyone have any suggestions as to proper coding & syntax for the following sequence?:

(1) Get name of .exe file associated with .pdf file type (most likely from the HKey Root Classes hive)

(2) Get path for the .exe file

(3) Shell("[pathname]appname.exe filename.pdf")

I've spent a couple of hours looking through the forums and haven't found what I'm looking for.

File I/O And Registry :: .Net 2003 Win App Can't See Local Files

Jan 25, 2012

I'm programming a small windows app that allows the user to fill out some fields and then creates and runs a batch file based on their entries. The program works, but it doesn't.The program creates the batch file just fine but when it tries to run the batch file, it gets errors in the cmd window saying it cannot find the scripts the batch file is trying to call. What's confusing me is that if I take the batch file the program created and run it myself, it works just fine so I know it is not the batch that is the problem. My best guess is that there is some security setting for that I've overlooked but I am only an "every once in a while" programmer so I really don't know where to look. Additionally after running the batch, the program is supposed to delete the batch file but that fails as well with the message that it cannot find the batch file, the same batch file that it had just created and run.

File I/O And Registry :: Random Access Files In .NET?

Nov 2, 2009

how to read and write random access records in .NET. Now I know random access files are dead and the response on every query I found with google/bing/yahoo searches was don't use random access use Binary serialization but I can not. I have a situation where I need to read and modify 256 byte records in a file that is used by another application.

Now for a bit of background the file is made up of 27 fixed length records of 256 bytes. Each of the records has a separate structure consisting of 30-120 fields. The proplem I am having is I can create the record structures but when using the FileGet method I am receiving an error. Now I have found samples that showed the same format I am using that claim to work.

The error I am getting is Option Strict On disallows narrowing from type 'System.ValueType' to type 'ProgramName.ModuleName.Record' in copying the value of 'ByRef' paramater 'Value' back to the matching argument.

The basic layout (simplified) is as follows:

Structure Record
<VBFixedString(6)> Public SomeParam as String
Public SomeNumber as Short


Now the overloads for FileGet show all of the data types including Object. But I have tried various methods to retreive the 256 byte record but without success. Do I have to actually read each of the several hundred fields of the structure one by one? Or am i overlooking something (I have been known for this in the past)

Or (and I'll kick myself if this is the only way) do I just have to set option strict Off in the module and the code as above will actually work.

I would love to be able to just ditch the random access file but I have to keep it for compatibility with several other applications at this time.

File I/O And Registry :: Using .NET 3.5 To Retrieve Files From IBM Mainframe

Jun 2, 2010

I know how to get a list of files in a local Windows machine's specific directory:

Dim dirInfo As DirectoryInfo = New DirectoryInfo("C:Temp")
Dim fileListing() As FileInfo = dirInfo.GetFiles()

But how do I use this class for a mainframe system where user ID, password and 'change directory' command are needed?

When I attempt to just access the server without credentials and just do the Windows version and use the syntax "\server_nameAUTO:RPTS.", where 'AUTO:RPTS.' is the mainframe directory name I get the following error: "The given path's format is not supported."

When I just use '\server_name' I get: "The UNC path should be of the form \servershare."

File I/O And Registry :: Zip Large Number Of Files?

Aug 28, 2009

I am using to archive files in a small backup program I am creating. Everything works fine however if I try to archive a large number of files the process of zipping them gets slower the further along in the job it gets.

Example: I have a directory that contains a little over 100,000 files in it. Each file is only about 200k of text. When I use the zipforge zip class it starts zip'ing very quickly but as it gets about 40% of the way through the directory it starts to slow down... at about 60% its working at a snails pace.

Memory usage for my solution also goes up proportionate to the archive file size as it grows. Currently it takes around 26hours to backup this directory which only contains 4 gigs worth of information.

If I use a program like winzip I can zip the folder in less than an hour. I am thinking there has to be a way to write to the end of the zip file without having to open it every time or without keeping it open. My backup software scans the specified folder and writes each file path and name into a text file. Then it reads the text file line by line and passes the path + file info to the zipforge addfile().

VS 2008 Registry - Opening Multiple Files?

Mar 27, 2009

I have made a registry entry as follows: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTMy AppShellOpenCommandAnd gave it the value: "C:Program Filesmyapp.exe" "%1" "%2"I also had a drophandler to for the apphis entry works fine for opening one file that is dragged to my app's icon. The problem is that I can only drag one file at a time into the app. If I try to drag more, it only ees the first file and ignores the others. I use the My.Application.CommandLineArgs array to access the command arguments. For example, My.Application.CommandLineArgs.Item(1) will open the file. If I change the registry entry to:"C:Program Filesmyapp.exe" "%1" "%2" "%3"This will open the first two files, but ignore the rest. If I change the registry entry to "C:Program Filesmyapp.exe" "%1" "%2" "%3" "%4"This will have the same behavior as the previous entry and ignore all but the first two files.

File I/O And Registry :: Accessing Files In Alphabetical Order?

Nov 20, 2009

For a project, I need to extract all the frames of an AVI video. This I have accomplished by with free program. The problem: it took a 30 second clip and spit back 5400 some frames, and the image only changes every 20 frames or so. I really only need about 270 frames, but I didn't want to go through each one manually. So, I wrote a small program using Visual Studio 2008 and VB to open each image in binary and compare it to the one before that. If there is a discrepancy of more than 55000 (to accommodate slight errors in capturing), it leaves the file be. If not, it deletes it.

After much troubleshooting, I got it all to work. I ran it on the directory containing the images, but when it finished, only the first image remained. I checked into it, and found that the FSO loop I have set up to loop through each file was pulling the files in apparently random order. It will give me the image "bg(01).bmp" and then immediately "bg(1362).bmp" and so on. And the order changes every run.

I tried setting up an array to generate a list of all the files and then sort them, so I could pull off the name of the file, then the next one, ect. but it took over 3 hours to finish processing the array, and then It was using a huge chunk of RAM.Is there some way to "force" vb to pull off files in alphabetical order? here is my, code, it belongs with a form. fPath is a global variable, simply pointing to the source directory.

I added a list box to the following code just to ensure the all the files are storing into the array properly... they are. When it try's to copy, it renames the first file to .log, then tells me that the .log file already exist. How do I get it to copy and keep the source file name in the destination folder Eventually I'll loop this and grab only 30 of the files.

File I/O And Registry :: Reading Files From A Large Directory?

Jul 15, 2009

I wrote a cleanup program to go through some directories and delete files based on if the creation date is older than say 6 months. It works fine with some of the directories I have that contain around a few thousand small files. However, there is one directory (that contains small backup files from another program) that is loaded with over 300,000 files and it locks up on me as soon as I read in the first file in that directory.I am convinced it is the directory has too many files in it to open it. The server that the directory is on is slow. It takes a half hour to open the directory while on the server itself. I know it will take forever to delete the amount of files I want to delete, but I don't understand why it gets stuck and hangs there with no error message.Here is where I get stuck. Listbox1 is the directory I'm attempting to access
