DotNetNuke (dnn) Advanced Login Module RSS News

For those of you returning to our blog, you will remember that we recently announced the release of an exciting dnn advanced login module. The module allows you to replace the standard login module of DotNetNuke that typically requires a user name and pass with this module that can allow a user to login to a dnn website with other profile data like an email address.

Well today we are reminding people interested in this module that we have an RSS feed that allows users to track our updates to this module. As we develop and improve the module, the releases and features of the releases are posted automatically from our MS CRM system to our website using the Interactive CRM Portal technology.

To see the latest news you can either go to our website specific for the Advanced Login Module, or visit our main DNN Module site here and click on the support tab for the latest dnn module news.

Microsoft Word 2007 Crashes – Why?

I have an otherwise stable work environment, yet today I discovered the root cause why I sometimes have to reinstall office 2007 to get MS Word to stop crashing.

The symptoms are that word started and appears to work ok, but I cannot select any text either right click with mouse or left. If I close the program, the application crashes with all the normal bull crap about recovery and bla bla.. end result is that word remains broken.

After much research and mucking around (save you all some time) I found that you have to reinstall. Repair is just a moving progress bar connected to nothing, as I have never seen the repair install process actually do anything useful.

But what I am excited about this time is that I worked out the cause. If MS word is open with a document that is not saved, and the operating system does a reboot after a service patch (or should I say… another services patch) then MS word tries to do some tricky save and restore stuff. When you open your operating system again, word is there, your documents are there, but it is all broken and needing to be reinstalled.

My suggestion. Turn off auto updates, just set it to download. Then make sure that you close word and check it is closed with a task manger (not some crap vista or windows 7 closed where the program remains hung and open but does not bother to tell you), then install updates and reboot (again) if needed.

Guess you can tell I have been doing this for a while…  and I am still surprised that the applications I use get less stable not more!  nuff said..

Hyper-v Guest OS Failed to start – Failed to create memory contents file

When trying to start a Hyper-V server we received this error.

Failed to create memory contents file ‘F:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\HyperV\Virtual Machines\….(some numbers)…\..morenumbers.bin’ of size 2048MB.

Screen Shot of error when Start Guest OS

The solution for this problem is simple. Make more space available on the drive with the Hyper-V VHD file. The message is indicating that the drive has run out of space.

It would be nice if Microsoft could dumb it down.
