I installed the WSUS role on a SErver 2016 server but have received a messaged that the WSUS Post-deployment configuration failed.

I have attached the log file for this error.

What do I need to do to fix this issue?

Here are the contents of this file:

Hello,

I am trying to come up with a solution in WPF to solve a UI issue I am having.

If you look at the attached wire-frame for the UI you will see that I'm trying to make a grid of sorts. The top portion of each row contains 'static' data (will always show # animals, species, gender, etc), but the bottom portion (additional details section) is more dynamic. If you look at the wire-frame you will notice that groups 1 and 2 have 5 attributes and group 3 has 8. This 'footer' section should support (n) attributes.

I'm not sure how to go about solving this issue. WPF datagrids re pretty limited so I don't know how to make this concept work with that. It doesn't necessarily have to be a datagrid, as long as I can solve the problem (even if there is a 3rd party control that could handle this, that works too).

Anybody have any ideas on where to get started?

Hi everyone,

I have the following AJAX call which updates portion of a page at 5s interval. The code works fine excepts that it appears as though the whole page is being refreshed, rather than just the values of the <p>. The page blinks briefly at every call, causing a horrible user experience. Any ideas why?

setInterval(function(){
        $.ajax({
         url:base_url+'dashboard/getLastTickets',
         method:'GET',
        success:function(data)
        {
            data = $.parseJSON(data);
        }
        });

        var ticketContainer = "";
        var i = 0;
        for (i=0; i<data.length; i++){
                ticketContainer = "ticketContainer" + data[i].service_code;
                document.getElementById(ticketContainer).html = data[i].service;
        }
}, 5000);

Open in new window


I did try to include the for loop within the AJAX call, but that did not solve the issue. Thanks for your help.

I use Excel 2016 with classic VBA. I do not use .NET.
Due to a windows 10 system crash, I have to reload the XML Custom UI editor for Microsoft Office, for use with MS Office 2016 (Excel).
When I tried to download the app from the web, I got a request to install ,NET which I did not get when I first installed the XML editor, pre-crash.

What is the correct procedure for downloading Custom UI editor for Microsoft Office, for use with  excel 2016?
Which site ought I to download the xml editor from?

Recommendation for an additional more agile freeware XML editor would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kelvin

We have a standard core Windows desktop program using Winforms as the user interface that we modify for individual client’s needs. This program is written in VB.NET and uses multiple forms for displaying test data and allowing the user to interact with the system. The user interface forms use a number of standard controls such as buttons, labels, textboxes, datagrids, option controls (radio buttons) and checkboxes to name a few.  There are also quite a few code modules that handle a variety of tasks.  In addition, the program uses a MS Access database with multiple tables.  The main test display form uses a timer control to allow for periodic data acquisition collection.

I now have a client (US Government) that is requesting that we build our program in such a way that the user interface operates completely in a browser such as Internet Explorer.  Another request they have made is that our application run as a service on a Windows 10 pc.

I am looking for guidance as to how, or even if, this can be accomplished. In addition, if this can be done, how much of our module code will be reusable?

Thanks,
Charlie

I need some help with a MySQL lock wait timeout error.  I'm appending a simple three field table, that insert statement then triggers about 111 functions that populate another table with totals for certain categories of information, that are then displayed to the user in the user interface.  This process used to work without error, but now certain systems are intermittently throwing this error when the display table gets cleared, my insert statement triggers by 111 functions, and the table is repopulated.

If I close the application and restart it the problem will go away for a while.    How can I debug this error?

The actual error message is:

ODBC--insert on a linked table 'triggerdashboard1' failed.

[MySQL][ODBC 5.2(a) Driver][mysqld-5.7.22-log] lock wait timeout exceeded; try restarting transaction (#1205)

I have username and password,
I'd like to authenticate these with the Azure Active Directory in my cloud, and I want it to be done with Microsoft Graph API if possible.
And most important, absolutely no user interface. Assume its all running via command line, or in a script.

So far I got the UI way (using C# but ultimately it will be C++):

Uri authUri = new Uri(string.Format("https://login.microsoftonline.com/{0}/oauth2/v2.0/authorize", TenantId));
try
{
   string data = string.Format("client_id={0}&response_type=code&response_mode=query&scope=user.read&redirect_uri={1}", ClientId, WebUtility.UrlEncode(redirectUrl));
   BrowsePage b = new BrowsePage();
   b.navigate(authUri, data);
   b.Show();

   b.Closed += new EventHandler((object sender, System.EventArgs e) =>
   {
      is_authenticated = true;
   });
}
catch (System.Net.WebException ex)
{
    System.Console.WriteLine("Authorize request: " + ex.Message);
}

I'm new to VMware and ESXi and this question might be very basic. But it seams I can not find a way to do it. I installed ESXi 6.5 on a server and installed 3 Ubuntu 16.0.4. I can access them through VMWare client and ESXi Web using the console but the question is: how can I access these VM using the VMWare Workstation or anything that allow me to access the Ubuntu UI without login to ESXi server?

I even setup static IP for each Ubuntu VM and tried VMware workstation server connect, using IP address and Ubuntu password but it didn't connect. Is there anything I'm missing? Do I need to setup some permissions or open port on ESXi?

Any help appreciate, -Thanks

I'm involved in a software testing group, it's the basic testing of an existing enterprise system. My question is about testing a fairly complex piece of software, that does this and that, and then inserts data into an Oracle table.

How do you test something like this "to the penny"? In order to have an independent test, you'd kind of have to build the same logic separately. Then if the program changes, you'd have to update your testing module.

Nevertheless, this is a system test and not a unit test. But still, to balance "to the penny", this is more than a causal glance at the numbers, "Hey, looks good!"

In my example, the logic retrieves data from Oracle where [such and such] = A, B, or C, and we changed the logic to add D, E, F. I'm inclined to inspect the code as our verification method. But to write a query to test this, I'm thinking I have to build the actual logic from the program.

Just looking for a reasonable approach to this.

Hi,

Looking to confirm terminology here.

Scrubbed example: Suppose I have two tables for a running stats database.

Runners, containing fields such as name, address, DOB, team affiliation.
Races, containing fields such as runnerID, date, distance.

In what I think is flawed design, the UI for entering race info contains an entry field for the runner's hometown. If you change it from (e.g.) "New York" to "Chicago" in one race, it will display "Chicago" for all races.

IMO, this field should be display-only on the Race info UI and should be modifiable only on the Runner UI.

Now, to my question: Is "normalize" the correct term I should use to convey this concept?

Thanks.

Hi Experts,
I am using a Kendo UI grid in my MVC.Net application.
I have added an onclick event to one of my grid's columns.  The event takes 1 parameter (the value of the BatchID columns).
I also want to pass the value of the FileName column a second parameter.  Is this possible to do using the template of a given column?
If so, how?

You can see my code, and an image of my code below:
    function loadLog() {
        var BatchID = $("#hdnBatchID").val();
        $("#ELog").empty();
        $("#ELog").kendoGrid({
            dataSource: {
                type: "ajax",
                transport: {
                    read: function (options) {
                        $.ajax({
                            type: "POST",
                            url: '@Url.Action("GetLog", "EDI")',
                            dataType: "json",
                            data: JSON.stringify({ "BatchID": BatchID}),
                            contentType: 'application/json; charset=utf-8',
                            success: function (result) {
                                var data = result.FileDtls;
                                if (data != null)
                                    options.success(result)
                            }
                        })
                    }
                },
                schema: {
                    data: function (response) {
                        return response.FileDtls;
                    }
                },

In my older Note2 (which is now broken), I was able to change my Tethering or Mobile Hotspot
SSID name & its password but on my current Note4 (I purchased it as a used set), I could only
enable it but could not locate anything on this Android 6.0.1 anything to change the name & password.

Another query:
I recall there's a setting where the first letter after a fullstop will be auto-capitalized & the standalone
letter "i" will be auto-capitalized: can't seem to find this setting.

I want to add a new task and associated group to the backstage of PowerPoint using the fluent UI XML method, although the same issue occurs for Excel and Word.

Using the Microsoft-published list of idMso control IDs I've established that the structure of the tab I'm interested in as as shown below:

PowerPoint backstage, Export tab
So to append a new task control to the end of the collection of 5 built-in tasks, this is the XML I'm using:

<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui">
	<backstage>
		<!-- Office Export Tab -->
		<tab idMso="Publish2Tab">
			<firstColumn>
				<taskFormGroup idMso="PublishGroup">
					<category idMso="FileTypes">
						<task id="myTask" label="My Task">
							<group id="myGroup" label="My Group"/>
						</task>
					</category>
				</taskFormGroup>
			</firstColumn>
		</tab>
	</backstage>
</customUI>

Open in new window


But when loading the project containing this same XML in PowerPoint, Excel or Word, I get this error:

Failed to find Office control by ID
ID: PublishGroup

I know the control ID is correct, even it it's swapped regarding Microsoft's normal naming convention because if I try taskFormGroup idMso="GroupPublish", I get the expected unknown error message instead:

Unknown Office control ID: GroupPublish

So do I have the XML structure wrong?

Hi

If I want to use a lock in my UI ribbon as an image, I know access has this kind of image how do I complete the referencing in the ribbon here ( imageMso = “Lock”):

<?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“utf-8”?> <!-- This is a comment in the ribbon’s XML -->
<customUI xmlns=“http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui” onLoad=“onRibbonLoad”>
 <ribbon startFromScratch=“true”>
 <tabs>

Instead of having my ribbon looking blank or without a single image, I can return some of the images already provided in Ms access as part of the application. For example the lock above can represent login menu.

Regards

Chris

I need to be able to import a csv file into an access table while allowing the user to browse to the file.  I have a file picker dialog process that allows the user to do so and although the process runs without any error messages, no data is imported.  

I am aware of how to create an import specification and running the saved import from the external data tab works, but I need to be able to run this from the user interface and the file path will not always be the same, nor will the file name.

has many items in download folder.

I have a related question because airbnb app only shows 9 items in download folder (newest nine).
Older items with same name have no picture.
I can not attach these items.
Airbnb does not recognize these files as images.

So it is an airbnb app error.

I need to allow users to upload their financial reports (PDF or CSV) to my site, but enable them to obscure private data (Business Name, Merchant Account Numbers, etc.) before any data gets stored to the disk.

I need to use Angular to create a list of user data fields extracted from the PDF and display them for approval, perhaps with a checkbox next to each field. Fields which contain that merchants proprietary data need to be then be checked off by the user so those fields would be populated with XXXXX's.

I do not want to store that PDF onto my server. Instead, I want the user to select the fields needing to be hidden. Or even ignore them altogether. I just do not want that PDF on my server.

So, the question is...

Can Angular extract the contents of a PDF that has been uploaded? And a PDF that does not exist on disk?

I could save the extracted data onto my server in some other fashion, not yet decided.

I prefer Angular 4, and hope this functionality exists in Angular 4.

It's an interesting challenge. I see Angular as a great platform for nested logic and as a place to store objects and lists of objects. And to do the first part of processing this data on the client is what intrigues me.

Thanks.
