Is Free Visual Studio Express Good Enough

Apr 7, 2011

I've got .net v4 installed, and the SDK, and I've managed a Hello World msgbox winform .exe app using the free IDE "SharpDevelop", but that doesn't seem to have an Immediate Window which I'm a bit lost without. I also tried MonoDevelop but I couldn't get the Immediate Window there to work, and worse than that, I couldn't even find a way to design forms and plonk down some controls! I think their main interest is C# rather than VB? So it looks like I'm going to have to try the crippled Express Edition from MS - which feels annoyingly limiting from what I've seen - but I'm struggling to understand exactly what missing features would halt me in my tracks.Basically (pun intended, sorry) I'm hoping to see if I can upgrade myself to from some VB6 dabbling a few years ago. From what I've read it seems mostly quite manageable, I can understand the "everything's an object" concept, etc.

But, would I be able to produce useful software, deployable around the office with proper msi installer packages? If not, then I just won't have the motivation to progress beyond a few little experiments. The question is - can I actually do anything worthwhile without risking the waste of a considerable sum of money if I were to shell out for an uncrippled version?

IPhone Jailbreaking Utility ?

Nov 20, 2009

Anyone know what jailbreaking does to an iPhone? If so, is there a way to make a program to jailbreak 3.1.2 in VB or in RealBasic? I guess it'd have to send commands to the hardware and software of the iPhone, and communicate with it pretty well...

Using Remote (RDP) Utility With Mstscax.dll?

May 18, 2010

I am looking for information on using mstscax.dll in VB. The goal is to create a utility that logs into a remote service in the same manner as remote desktop. However, my utility is not required to show the desktop.I have a series of commands that I will start off with that will look for users, reset logins, shadow, and message. I have been using a batch file on my RDP to perform these functions, but we are already looking for more functionality and power than what the batch commands can offer. I am googling 'mstscax.dll' but the results have been less than satisfactory although I continue to search.

VS 2010 Design Layout Utility?

Sep 22, 2010

This is kind of an off-the-wall question but does anyone know if VS 2010 has somekind of utility that will allow you to just drag & drop controls onto a form or something that will help in visual design. I'm just talking for visual purposes only. No code-behind files or anything...almost like a canvas where you can place controls and labels, etc.

VS 2010 - Utility To Create Self Extracting EXE

Dec 1, 2010

I am trying to create an application to make self-extracting Exe's in Visual Studio 2010 Express. I would like to have a box in which files can be dropped into, then when you click "Compile" it will compress all files dropped into the box along with 3 others I must have delivered to this self-extracting exe. When the newly created exe is run, it will launch "Install.exe". I know there are other items out there to build the self-extracting exe's. I would however like to make my own that always delivers these 3 specific files along with whatever is dropped into the application.

Build A Date Calculator Utility (DateCalc)?

May 10, 2011

I am trying to build a date calculator utility (DateCalc). It returns the number of days,weeks, months etc between two dates.I worked hard and long trying to find out how to convert a date into a format on which you can perform math operations (for the "what's the date in 'n' days time" part) and it works! I can also use the minus operator to find out previous dates, from say 10000 days ago... BUT...I want to develop it further, and this is where I need help (i am still very newbie remember)Can you help me to find a way to code this bit to ignore weekends and saturdays or sundays individually, and a range of dates in its calculation? I have two datetime pickers and a some checkboxes.DTPickFromDTPickToChkBoxExWeekendChkBoxEXSaturdaysChkBoxExSundays An image of my form and it's components is here :--> [URL] Also, as part of my 'Datecalc', I'd like to find the dates of every other saturday and sunday in the future.

C# - Get An Utility That Can Monitor Open Windows/ In .net Winforms?

Apr 13, 2010

I want to find the framework class that enables one to choose an image at design-time. I can find the editor that is used at run-time - its the Drawing.Design.ImageEditor. At design time, however, a different editor pops up which allows one to choose an image from resources.I'm guessing I could run some kind of program, then open up the image editor, from the property grid, and see what new windows/classes have been created?

Creating A Tool Or Utility Or 'helper App' For A Project?

Nov 23, 2009

It seems that in C#, a solution can contain multiple projects, which, I guess, would compile into separate but somehow related programs. It seems that this functionality is missing in VB, even though VB uses solution files as well.How would someone go about creating a tool or utility or "helper app" for a project? For example, a command line version of the program, which is a separate executable, but obviously would be distributed as part of the main program? Maybe I want to integrate a feature into windows where the user can right click on a certain file and choose "convert" from the context menu, where "convert" would open the helper app, which would read the file and save an updated copy of the file (converting from one file format to another and saving the result) without the user needing to wait for the main program to load, wait for the interface to be configured, then wait for the file conversion. The helper app would not need to display an interface to the user - just convert and save the file.

VS 2008 : Zip, Rar, And 7z - Decompress All These Files Using The Windows Utility?

Sep 3, 2010

Background: I have read a bunch of techniques to handle compression. I don't think SmartZipLib handles 7z. System.OS.compression does not seem to handle rar or 7z. I am trying to find one approach for all.The tools within Windows XP seem to handle them all from inside the file manager (at least on my computer).Question: how can I decompress all these files using the windows utility? I am guessing it is some sort of Shell command. Alternatively, is there another option?

Code Review: ADO.NET Data Access Utility Class (VB)?

Mar 6, 2009

When I started at my current employer I inherited a project from a previous developer and in that project was a data access utility class that tries to simplify a lot of the code involved in making calls and retrieving data back from the database. Over time it has been modified to add more overloaded forms of functions, and now I am looking at possible suggestions from the StackOverflow community.What do you think should be added? Removed?odified?Note:It would be nice if this class could remain compatible to VB.NET in the .NET 2.0 framework. We are also developing in 3.5, but I would like to have something that is generally going to work across most frameworks (so no LINQ, etc.) Also, please refrain from unnecessary answers that consist of nothing but "Use nHibernate" or other tools.

My class:
Public Class DataAccess
Public Shared Function ReturnScalar(ByVal CmdStr As String) As String

Utility That Allows The User To Edit Jump List Entries?

Jul 29, 2011

I want to make a utility that allows the user to edit Jump List entries. There is some kind of tie between the raw junplist filenamess and the app, for instance:

Excel = cdf30b95c55fd785
Word = adecfb853d77462a

Those were found by trial and error and there are a few more on the net.

For MS Word the file is "C:UsersusernameAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsRecentAutomaticDestinationsadecfb853d77462a.automaticDestinations-ms"

What I'm wondering is if anyone knows how to determine what filenames go with what program. Deciphering the files will be another issue for sure

Open Source Code / Utility For Maintain Calendar In SQL Server DB?

Sep 3, 2009

I am looking for some (preferable code to use in an application that will allow me/my users to setup calendars (that I store in SQL server db).

I am looking for something that will make it easy to schedule recurring appts (i.e. every monday, every other week on thursday at 9AM, every month,1st and 3rd tuesday, every year etc) with as many possible scenarios as possible.

I can automate most of the easy ones via a few screens, but inevitably my users come up with scenarios that require me to code and execute some custom scripts in SQL to make the entries, and I'd really like to offload this to the users.

Starting Up A Thread That Runs The Standard Windows Defrag Utility?

Apr 8, 2009

I have a app that is starting up a thread that runs the standard windows defrag utility. It also gives the user the option to cancel the defrag if they want to. Problem is if the thread defrag is running on is canceled is there any data loss or does it just do the last operation and then exit. For example the code goes something like this:


Code works exactly as it should, runs the defrag on a separate thread so my UI remains responsive. I'm just worried about the effect of the cancel on it, when you call a thread abort does the program running in the thread know it's being canceled and "cleanly" close? I don't want to abort a file move operation when it's defraging and end up with a corrupt file.

Deleting Rows From .sdf Files Using Database Explorer Utility Of Visual Basic?

I am trying to delete rows of an .sdf file using the Database Explorer utility of Visual Basic. When doing so, I get the following error message:No rows were deleted.

A problem occurred attempting to delete row 1.

Error Source: Microsoft.VisualStudio.DataTools. Error Message: The row value(s) updated or deleted either do not make the row unique or they alter multiple rows(48 rows). Correct the errors and attempt to delete the row again or press ESC to cancel the change(s). It is correct that the data in the rows are not unique (and not supposed to be; there is no "error" to correct), but why should this prevent deleting them?
