Fix: Word print view showing no margins and pages appear collated
05 Απριλίου 19 11:46 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
I’m often asked by friends and family to assist them on frustrating technical issues they can’t resolve by themselves. Thanks to remote access / support software like TeamViewer, this is a piece of cake nowadays. The solution to such problems isn’t always straightforward though. Just came across a Microsoft Word installation where suddenly the Print […]

04 Απριλίου 19 05:09 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Had just converted to target .NET framework 4.7.2 a Visual Studio solution full of 4.5 libraries, console apps and an MVC 5.0 (recently converted from 4.0) web app and all seemed to build fine, but then noticed that with web.config of the MVC web app open in the editor, it was showing lots of warnings […]

Fix: jqGrid search operator menu items jumping around on hover
06 Νοεμβρίου 18 08:27 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
A colleague noticed earlier on today, that on the Chrome browser they were using, the search operator menu items of a jqGrid on a web app’s UI were jumping around on hover, making it practically impossible to select one.    Seems this had started occurring on that ASP.net MVC web application, after a recent update […]

HowTo: Fix DVD/CD with Live filesystem (Packet/UDF) on Windows
10 Οκτωβρίου 18 09:33 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
The other day I found how easy it is to use a Live CD/DVD (where packet writing occurs when adding stuff) instead of a Mastered one (where all is kept to be written when you close the disk) on Windows. It feels more like using a USB flash disk and should be more safe regarding […]

Fix: jQuery’s jqGrid search UI custom styling
03 Οκτωβρίου 18 01:35 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Lately, I’ve got the task of maintaining/extending an ASP.net MVC web application that is using jQuery’s jqGrid for data grids on its UI. First thing I noticed was how confusing the search UI on the grid’s header was: Those symbols on the left-side of each column’s searchbox are for the type of search (e.g. contains, […]

Fix: Temporary or Local roaming profile message after Windows login
18 Αυγούστου 18 08:09 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
  Researching how to solve a “You have been logged on with a temporary profile” message on a system set up to use a roaming profile (and after I had first checked/fixed the filesystem for errors which is the classic cause for that when using local profiles) I came across this article: http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2011/07/how-to-reset-a-roaming-profile-in-windows-7 Near the […]

Fix: Windows 10 laptops with AMD graphics adapter going really slow
27 Ιουνίου 18 07:11 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Quoting my comment from a discussion thread on the AMD Community website Actually the drivers back from 2015 that Microsoft serves for AMD laptop graphics adapters seem to make Windows 10 crawl (at everything, not just in graphics stuff). Installing the newest ones from AMD (in this case the beta driver) makes laptops work decently […]

HowTo: Install Skype desktop on Windows 10 (for older webcams)
22 Μαρτίου 18 02:05 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
On Windows 10, Microsoft (they’ve acquired Skype some years ago) provide a Windows Store app for Skype, however Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps like that one don’t support older webcams (even the ones embedded in not-that-old laptops). Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn’t bothered to provide some frame grabber driver to bridge with DirectShow-based etc. older webcams that […]

Some time ago, at a WordPress 3.3 blog, a friend was getting a blank main area at the administration UI (just the menu was showing up there) when they visited the classic URL of the form http://somesite/wp-admin/. Here is a writeup of some notes I had kept while troubleshooting that issue and then upgrading to […]

Fix: Windows Phone update error 80072f8f

I was setting up a new Lumia phone (with Windows Phone 8.1) and neither phone update, nor the (Here) maps downloads were working. When trying Settings / Phone Update, it was showing error 80072f8f and was pointing to http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/how-to/wp8/basics/solutions-to-update-issues to read more info. However that error code wasn’t listed there. Wonder if there is any […]

25 Νοεμβρίου 15 04:50 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
For some time now, I was getting very annoyed while copy-pasting content from other software into Microsoft Word 2010. I would press CTRL+C at some other software and then would press ALT+TAB to go into an open Word document and press CTRL+V to paste, but it would not. So I had to move my fingers […]

At http://www.askvg.com/fix-windows-10-insider-preview-build-10240-not-appearing-on-windows-update/ it writes: NOTE: If you previously had a new Windows 10 build installed in your computer and then reverted back to an older build, you’ll lose access to the new build and it’ll no longer be offered as an upgrade option.

Fix: VSIX installer error – SignatureDescription could not be created
10 Οκτωβρίου 15 02:13 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
This is my answer at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31552082/vsix-installer-signaturedescription-could-not-be-created-for-the-signature-algo/ to the question on why some extensions fail to install at RC (Release Candidate) versions of Visual Studio 2015, showing error “SignatureDescription could not be created for the signature algorithm supplied”. Not sure if Microsoft fixed this on purpose or by accident, but this is very useful for people […]

Fix: Cleanup after upgrading from Windows 10 technical preview

I recently replaced the internal hard disk of my old Lenovo S10-3t Tablet PC with an SSD and installed Windows 10 technical preview, but recently realized the hard disk had almost run out of space. Trying to figure out why, I realized that upgrading from the Windows 10 technical preview version to the final Windows […]

Fix: TortoiseHg not commiting files
04 Φεβρουαρίου 15 06:00 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
It seems that sometimes TortoiseHg Mercurial (Hg) client on Windows fails to remove a 0-byte-sized file named “wlock” (a write lock to avoid simultaneous write to a local repository) in the “.hg” subfolder that holds a local repository. This results in the Commit dialog never commiting changed/removed/added files and you have to press Close there […]

Fix: Hypelinks not clickable in RichTextBox under Silverlight
07 Σεπτεμβρίου 14 04:18 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Just fixed a nasty bug in ClipFlair Studio (http://studio.clipflair.net), where one couldn’t click hyperlinks in the Text component when set at ReadOnly mode. In that mode hyperlinks should open up new web pages (in Edit mode you can edit/remove them only of course), but instead when clicked they would show something like a focus rectangle […]

Fix: How to remove Trovigo.com, SearchProtect, restore Internet Options
14 Μαΐου 14 09:35 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Trovigo.com is an unwanted search engine hijacker that renders Internet Options of Windows / Internet Explorer inaccessible. To restore them on an older Windows XP installation, one way that I’ve found to work is to update Internet Explorer to a newer version, aka IE 8 (say via the embedded Windows Update facility or Microsoft Update […]

When you try to run a ClickOnce Windows application from Mozilla Firefox, on some machines you may see it try to save a .application (ClickOnce deployment manifest) instead of running the ClickOnce application installer/updater/launcher. To fix that issue you can open Firefox add-ons dialog and search among available to download/install add-ons for "net framework assistant". […]

The other day my Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 (was either a gift from Microsoft Hellas or had ordered it myself from Microsoft Company Store with the credit Microsoft used to give pro-crisis to MVPs) started behaving erratically, failing most of the times to right-click and sometimes doing left clicks instead with some delay, or […]
