ShellExecute Doesn't Repond When Advanced Compiler Settings For Target CPU Is X86
Apr 19, 2010
I have noticed that ShellExecute does nothing (no errors or anything) if the Advanced Compile Options for the Target CPU is set to "x86", but it does work for "Any CUP' and "x64". Is there a way or setting to fix this? I am currently running Visual Studio 2005 on a Windows 7 x64 machine.[code]...
I am trying to change the Target CPU for my application and have read on the net to go to Project Properties -> Compile tab then click on the Advanced Compile Options. I am using VB.net 2005 Express Edition. Is this not available in Express Edition or am i looking in the wrong place?
I am currently working on a project in VB.net that requires the advanced power settings of the client's system to be set to allow wake up timers for when the system sleeps. Please I have been looking around for the solution. I desperately need it.
i have created a user setting named 'setmeup' as string, scope = user, value = "magical meow meow!".in my code i access it and assign it a new value like this...my.settings.setmeup = "howdy cowboy!"my.settings.save()application.restart()when the application restarts, i expect the my.settings.setmeup = "howdy cowboy!" but when i check its contents its still "magical meow meow!".but when i use application.exit() instead of application.restart() and manually restart the program, my.settings.setmeup = "howdy cowboy!" which is correct.what must i do? i want to use application.restart() because i don't want the users to double-click the icon again to start the program. i want the program to restart automatically.
however, this doesn't have an ID so i can't simply use GetElementById. if i were in JS i would use a 'GetElementsByClassName' and then set an index to find the element i want to use but i am not sure if vb.net has such a function so i thought about trying to call its parent element which does have an Id but this does nothing.
I'm using the following code to read in a highscores file with the score written first and the player's name written to the next line, and then display the top 3 scores or fewer if there aren't 3 scores written to the file. A highscores display should have the scores sorted with the highest first so that's what this program tries to implement.
Array.sort() isn't doing a damn thing. In fact, the program's not even reversing the arrays like it should either. I've tested array.sort() this way with the names and scores arrays given explicitly and it works fine. I thought maybe it was still reading the data as string even though it's declared otherwise but it rounds off decimals when I change the array type to Integer so I'm pretty sure it's not that.
I have no idea why reading the data in from a file changes how it's sorted. My teacher didn't understand what was going on either. Does anyone know what's going on here?

(My question is similar to this one, but the code is slightly different, and the solution doesn't work for me)I'm trying to save settings changes to the app.config:
Dim config As System.Configuration.Configuration = ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(ConfigurationUserLevel.None) config.AppSettings.Settings("HistoryRootDirectoryPath").Value = p_historySavingPath
I am using a 3rd party dll in an application and the installer does not register the component irrespective of any settings in the install package.It will register manually though using regsrv32 after installation.My question is how can I use the System. Diagnostics. Process.Start("cmd.exe")function to call the regsvr32 with the dll name after installation from the install package, also the correct syntax for referencing the installation folser if the user amends it on install so that it doesn't fail on execution because of spaces.Dim stRegPath as String= "regsvr32 & "" & Path.GetDirectoryName (Assembly. GetExecutingAssembly().Location) & "rogue.dll".
Im just wondering whats wrong with this line vb Dim lines As New List(Of String)(IO.File.ReadAllLines("/Settings.ini")) Well its working.. But it doesnt goes "/Settings.ini" just instead "C:/Settings.ini".. But I type "/Settings.ini".. how make it local folder?
This error first appear to occur randomly. Steps to recreate:Open Visual Studio and load a solution (some files automatically opened) - this is when the problem occurs Close all open files Restart visual studio and load solution (no issues)Open Exactly the same files again, restart visual studio and load solution so files open automatically (problem occurs!)
However, when trying to narrow it down to a single file (that is automatically opened when the solution is loaded), I couldn't reproduce the problem. Now with all the files open again the problem doesn't occur!!! So it looks like it is fixed - though this happened before and eventually the issue came back.
I think it is to do with one of the user controls with DevExpress controls on it - when the error occurs, the designer displays the error. Though I can't reproduce it at the moment to confirm that.
If I look at the IL that is created in Linqpad for the two following code snippets, I wonder what happens here.
In c# int i = 42;
results in the following IL code
whereas in VB
Dim i As Integer = 42
IL_0000: ldc.i4.s 2A IL_0002: stloc.0
Apparently, the c# compiler understands the the value is never used and thus simply returns nothing. In VB.NET the actual code is translated.Is that due to differences in compiler optimization or is there anything else at work?
Update: Just to clarify this - I just enter this one line into LinqPad and look at the IL it creates (most definitely by running the respective compiler). There is no program.
I tried using this code I got from MSDN, but it doesn't do anything. What I am trying to do is have the user click the "Purchase" button in my app that will open a web browser to the web page on our site where they can purchase the application after their demo period has expired. If this is not the correct code?
Code: ' open internet browser to www.Cootsware.comspeedmaster.html Private Declare Function ShellExecute _ Lib "shell32.dll" _
I am calling the following function (to open a file in its default application) in some code running under Vista OS. Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
The function does nothing in Vista. However when running under Windows XP it works fine.
I'm using Visual Basic Express 2008 and I need to use the command Shellexecute. I can't seem to find it though. Autocomplete doesn't display it. Is it a namespace I need to import? Is the command no longer supported?
I have a university assignment, The problem, well.. in the short anyway; i have this form which is for placing orders. There is an "add product" command and next to it a list box. what I would LIKE to achieve is being able to click on add and then a query would come up asking for the user to input a product ID then check either yes or cancel. once that is done, I would like the database to search products by ID (obviously) and then display the product in the list box. the list box may contain up to 5 products and no more. there is also functions to remove individual products from the list box as well as clear the list box all together. in addition to this mammoth task, I also have a label which requires a total price. this would be the price of all the items in the list box, not in the database.
Im looking to make an advanced drawing program in vb.net as a bit of a project to occupy my time.im looking to make one pretty much like Paint but with gradients and other features, but im at a loss as to where to find such a tutorial.
I have two tables:Orders OrderProducts - An order can have 1 to many orderProducts records associated with it.What I am trying to do (unsuccessfully) is to implement a GridView search using a LinqDataSource wherein the search returns Order results where any of the OrderProduct.Manufacturer columns contain a search query.
I was hoping the following would work, however it seems lambda expressions do not work within a Where clause of a LinqDataSource (in VB):
how to get this working within the LinqDataSource definition, or will I have to handle and set up a custom OnSelecting event?
i have an advanced web browser and i would like some codes.It has unlimited tabs but i have a few problems.when i click a link that open in a new window,it open it with internet explorer.When i add a tab and i go to msn.com and other sites,the document title is very long and one tab is the 50% of the webbrowsers tabcontrol tab page text.it's too long!I got an error while i was trying to set the selected tabs text length with a message telling:property length is readonly.If ComboBox1.Text.EndsWith(".swf") Then i want the selected tab to get filled by an axschockwaveflashobject at dock style.A code that makes an .mp3 link to open with an axwindowsmediaplayer on a new tab or at the current tab and a code for bookmark menu that keeps them after program close for the next use.I saw a video about the bookmarks,but i didn't understand lots from it.url...
what I've been reading the past 2 weeks and I want to make a Multi File Downloader.y goal is to have a TabControl, inside each Tab I'll have about 3 to 5 (maybe 7) CheckBoxes, each CheckBox is tied to a TextBox where the url goes (I attached the GUI I have so far so you can see better how I want it to be).Now so far the downloader is working fine, I can download whatever I have in those TextBoxes and it is downloading it only when CheckBox is checked.Here's my problem I want it to be a MULTIdownloader lol not a single file downloader like it is acting right now.
So my question is how can I do so when I check 2 or more CheckBoxes it starts downloading the files (it doesn't have to be simultaneity, it can start downloading the first one then the 2nd one etc).Also how can I identify which CheckBoxes are checked and which ones not? Right now I am using If/ElseIf to control the CheckBoxes but I wonder if there is a better way to do it, because I only have 2 CheckBoxes so far, to test and if I do it like I am now it's gonna be a loooong code.Here's what I have.
Private Sub btn_download_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btn_download.Click If CheckBox1.Checked = False AndAlso[code]....
If is too complicated how could I do so everything saves in the same location as the downloader is?I've been reading around the forum also the microsoft documentation about VS 2010 (I'm not gonna lie, I haven't read the whole thing,

I made a change to my program this morning which worked properly before. The Targetframework was set to 3.5 and I thought let's set it to 3.0 that threw in some errors so I changed it back to 3.5.. however that's giving me an error as well now :S This is the error:

I need to run a small piece of java code (java is the only option in this case) I have the jar file in the VB.net resources as JSSMCL(the extension is not required to run it, of this I am sure :P) I know I use Path.GetFullPath(My.Resources.ResourceManager.BaseName) but no mater how i do it it fails, i have tried so many ways i have lost count! this is the command that i need to run:
I have a server program. It logs all of the lines on the console textbox in their proper folder, named by their type: Logs\Year\Month\Day\Errors.txt There are about 7 types that it logs. All of these show up in the console window. However, I have check boxes that I want to toggle the types that show up in the console window on and off. For example if I want to hide the Error and System types, I want the rest of the types to show. I know I can do this simply, but if I re-check the boxes to show the System types as well with the others, I want it to show the logs in their proper place in the console window, and that I cannot figure out how to do.I am stuck on this problem and cannot figure it out. I know it involves much more than an If statement to display the types correctly in the right place on the console. Please help me out with some idea of what I need to do.

I use Visual Studio 2003, VB.net, NetFramework 1.4 and Windows XP I have been using the following Code Snippet for a number of years in both Web Services and Windows Applications. However suddenly around the 29th September 2010 it has stopped sending E-Mails from both Web Services and Windows Applications. The same problem has happened not only to my own Network but on two other Networks, one using XP as its Server and the other using Server 2003. All 3 of these are using different ISPs.
