  • Free Windows Vista Support (SP1 only)

    As you probably know, Microsoft is working on running up its marketing machine to talk about how good Vista really is. (And yes, I was an early convert - I am one of those folks that really like Vista - it took some major thought-pattern changes, but it is really much easier to use.) As part of this...

  • MAPI/CDO for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista

    If you want to write client applications to run on computers that use MAPI or CDO (for example, web servers) and you don't want to install (or can't install) either the Outlook client or the Exchange management tools, then you need to install the MAPI/CDO libraries. These were released just last...

  • Vista x64 Server Execution Failed

    As I wrote earlier, in My Continuing Story of 64-Bit Vista , I've been very happy with Vista x64. After installation of SP1 though, there has been one nagging problem - the wireless notification in the systray didn't work. This is exclusively a problem with Vista x64 on service pack 1. It didn't...

  • Even More on Vista

    So, yesterday I wrote an opinion-piece about Vista , and it appears that Bob Cringely did too . Completely unrelated, and I didn't read his piece before I wrote mine. Of course, his readership is more than mine. :-) His piece has generated lots of commentary - but I just flat out think he's wrong...

  • Just fluff on Vista....

    What _IS_ the deal? I practically got into an argument with another MVP recently over Vista...he said no one is buying it. I chose to disagree. He said no one is running it. I chose to disagree. By this point, he was pretty wound up...so I just suggested we agree to disagree.... According to Bill Gates...

  • A Work In Progress...

    Yesterday (Thursday, 2008-04-17) was the last day of the 2008 MVP Summit. Over one-half of the MVPs attending were from countries other than the United States. It was interesting to hear the dozens of languages being spoken around me this week. Very little of what was covered during the Summit is not...

  • Perfmon tip on scaling

    Recently on a mailing list, several folks expressed some confusion about the scaling that Perfmon (Performance Monitor) does in its graphs and how it affects the data. The answer is: it doesn't. The scaling is used only to make the graph fit in the Perfmon window. The values contained in the Last...

  • Exchange 2007 Disk Performance/Partition Alignment - A Little Quickie

    A perennial recommendation to squeeze the utmost in performance from your Exchange 2007 (and Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003...) disk spindles has been to align the partition boundaries of the disks to a 8 KB boundary - since Exchange will always read in 8 KB at a time (or a multiple of that up to a...

  • My Continuing Story of 64-bit Vista

    As I reported here , I got all my applications moved over (except for MOA 2007 and since then, MOA 2008). We determined that the MOA installation issue revolves around the aborted SQL Express 2005 installation that MOA 2007 attempted to do. If you make this move, I recommend that you install SQL x64...
