An assembly language (or assembler language) is a low-level programming language for a computer or other programmable device in which there is a very strong (generally one-to-one) correspondence between the language and the architecture's machine code instructions. Each assembly language is specific to a particular computer architecture, in contrast to most high-level programming languages, which are generally portable across multiple architectures, but require interpreting or compiling. Assembly language is converted into executable machine code by a utility program referred to as an assembler; the conversion process is referred to as assembly, or assembling the code.

A consultant created a new web server using Server 2019. They then migrated our intranet over to it and started the iis services. The html pages of our intranet load, but the aspx pages do not.

I'm trying to compare the settings between the two iis servers and have not been able to figure out what is making me get the following error message when an aspx page tries to load:

Server Error in '/dotnet' Application.
Could not load file or assembly 'dotnet' or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.

I should also add that I'm stumbling around in this area and am not by any means an expert.

Hello everyone.

For starters, I do not make a lot of money in my self-business.
So, I have to get what I can get, in order to grow.
With that said.

My question is simple.
WHAT RAID Card do I need to get, to connect this with?

Three images. The red lines show to broken hinge. This is a manufacturing defect from the first S-10 extended cab with third door that came off the assembly line. This hinge should have been made with metal. I've changed this three times and now on #4. The part from the dealer is expensive and the pull a parts yards are far and between on having the ones with the third door. And when they do the part is missing.
The orange line shows the holes through which the plastic pieces (blue lines) slide and one end of the broken hinge is shown in the red circle.
The pieces that have these plastic pins are on a threaded rod. On the back of the door opener part are two holes. When the handle is pressed the round holes do not move much. One goes down to pull the top rod (the one on the left) down to release the top of the door and the other one goes up when the handle is pressed to pull the right side rod up. I think the plastic pieces are about in the place they are supposed to be to put the required amount of tension on the handle to raise the right side rod that pulls up and releases the door latch at the bottom.

The problem, even though I have sprayed the door latches with WD-40, is that the amount of tension put on the plastic handle is too much and eventually the plastic hinge breaks.
The only way to get the door open is to have that piece removed and just pull up and down on the threaded rods. I tried that for over two years by stuffing a rag in the open space so the rods …

CRM 2013, Dynamics 365 online

I am looking for a method to test plugins converted for D365 from CRM 2013.  With a Dev environment, how can this be done using Visual Studio and the PRT?

Ideas are: on Dev, if we register the plug-in assembly, ,register a plug-in step for an event and test its execution by doing whatever is shown in the code.  For example, step through the code as a plugin and test that it performs the actions in the CRM 2013.

Questions: can Visual Studio be used in Debug mode to step through the code and provide an adequate test?  Can the PRT be used to view the registered plugin and verify that the plugin ran as expected?

I have a .Net Framework (4.6.1) class library project (call it A).
Then I have a UWP app (call it B), and I want to use the code in A by referencing to A from B. But that is not possible. UWP apps are .Net Core and not compatible with .Net Framework.

So I created a .Netstandard 2.0.3 class library project (call it C), to be a proxy between A and B. I now reference from A (the UWP app) to C (the .Netstandard class library), and then from C to B (the .Net framework class library).

Everything compiles now, but when I run/debug the UWP app in Visual Studio I get the following error originating from the code in A:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: 'Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.ApplicationServices, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'. The system cannot find the file specified.'

System.Web.ApplicationServices is a .Net Framework reference in A, and is not compatible with B. I was hoping to get around this by using .Net standard and C as a proxy between A and B.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Code examples won't help here, the code works fine, but not the integration between the various technologies.
Accountant sends us tax returns as password protected PDFs (password needed to open it.  Properties says it was created with Thomson Reuters FileCabinet CS.  The security tab says I can print, copy contents, comment, etc (I can do everything execpt doc assembly and page extraction, whatever those are : )

I click on them in outlook, it opens in Acrobat Reader DC ( free version) - this is on a windows 10 pro machine by the way.

I want to keep a PDF without the password.  So print to PDF?  But they get sooo much larger

Working on it now, he sent a 24 page PDF that is 93kb

trying different apps:

microsoft print to PDF - 673kb
Tried printing with PDF Creator, but it balks because PDF is password protected (to open, and printing is allowed).  WTF!

Tried opening in chrome.  printing w/ microsoft print to pdf made it a 5MB file!  And still can't use pdf creator.

What's a good combination for opening & printing a PDF or some other easy way to strip off password protection to open a PDF

I have an ASP.NET web forms project, currently running in .net 4.5 version. I am trying to migrate the source code to bitbucket. I pushed the code and compiled the project successfully. when I try to run the project, I get an runtime error shown below -

Could not load file or assembly <add assembly="System.Web.Helpers, Version=, Culture=neutral  ....

In the project, under references I see system.web.helpers.dll, but the inside the folder  (C:\documents\repos\myproject\bin\System.Web.Helpers.dll )  the dll is not there.

when i go to nuget package manager , and search for system.web.helpers.dll , I can't find it.

Questions -

1. Is this dll no longer available and is replaced by something else?
2. I suppose, when the project was created initially, a reference to dll was added to the project. and looking at the folder path for the dll in the project ( C:\documents\repos\myproject\bin\System.Web.Helpers.dll), when i did a clean build the dll must have been deleted . when the dll was added initially, was it supposed to be in the bin folder?
3. or was this dll availabe in older version of .net ? if i update the .net framework version, I would probably need to update other dlls too, which I am trying to avoid.
4. what are best practices in such situations?

Hi Experts,

I have an application with a reference to Microsoft.SQLServer.BatchParser.dll
I have a problem when I install my application with batchparser (version 9 - SQL2005) and try to update it to batchparser (version 14 - SQL2017)

The assembly is in the directory of the application, but when I try to run the application I get the error message "Could not find file or assembly 'Microsoft.'SqlServer.BatchParser.dll' or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not be found".

Is it possible to update this assembly by copying it to the application directory? Because this is an update, I do not want to manually register or install anything.
I have tried building my application in x86 instead of AnyCPU, but still have the problem.

C# web service calling another .NET assembly using reflection
I use a web service to a run-time assembly call using C# Reflection.
The assembly is in Binary format in database. All records contains a binary data which is almost same in structure. It has a Start method in a class called 'MyAssembly'
First I loads assembly object using  the Binary data, then finds the type - MyAssembly from it and then calls a method 'Start'. The start will write the logs into a directory. This works entirely fine when we call from an executable. All executables goes into separate process ID and the results are getting.

Then calling the same step using a Web service hosted in IIS, the results are getting messed up. Simultaneous calls to the same method gets the results into different different calls.
Example: Method1 called using web service and the logs are writing into File1.
Method1 again called using different arguments and the logs are writing into File2.
When calling method1 two times at the same point of time using web service, gets the logs messed up, File1 details are showing in File2 and File2 are in File1. It is not only the logs issue bug also the execution are getting wrong that inner methods are not getting proper outputs and return values. Everything messed up.
