I do not know if this is the correct place to be asking this question, but here is the background.  I live in mountain time timezone and own a 950XL windows phone, Surface Pro3 and HP Tower, all with the latest Windows 10 updates installed as of today, August 2017.  The Surface and HP tower work properly in that if I add a calendar appointment on either device, the proper MT timezone is shown on either device and the appointment does appear on the cell phone, of course with timezone not shown, but the alarm does ring at the right time.  I am using Office 365 (Outlook 2016 at present).   On the phone Outlook Calendar app is installed and it does update occasionally when I do an update check.

I just noticed this problem in that when I (source) a calendar appointment from the phone, say at 5:00 pm (no timezone selectable) on the Surface and HP Tower this appointment appears at 5:00 pm Monrovia, Reykjavik time.  On the appointment If I change to mountain time on either device, I have to change the actual alarm hour by a considerable amount to make the calendar alarm work a intended.  This means (I think) if I am travelling with my phone and adding new appointments, my Surface and HP tower will not alarm properly.  If I understand this properly, I have lost the MS advantage of having purchased these 3 devices so that they operate flawlessly.

I cannot find any way on the phone to change any configuration to make this work properly.  I took my cell phone and my Surface into …

Hello!

The title may surprise you, but there really exists a problem with file writability, if you access on a file modified on a PC over Windows Phone 8.1! Actually, the problem first arose under Windows Phone 7.4, but I later switched to a then new smartphone under Windows Phone 8.0, which I later upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1 (it is a NOKIA Lumia 930).

I am using mobile devices to take notes for more than 15 years now. At the beginning, I used Windows CE and later the Windows Mobile 6. With the years passing by, the capabilities of the mobile devices increased, making it possible to enter directly the data into a Microsoft Office document (like Excel) without first making text notices in a TXT file and copying it in another "real" Excel file on the PC later on. But with the above error I am dealing with, I go "back to the old times" and have to copy and paste at home all the notices, if they are meant to be part of an Excel sheet that all-of-a-sudden became read-only.

Actually, I never make the files read-only intentionally. All happens when sometimes adding a column or a new tab when editing the documents over OneDrive in the browser, using Microsoft Excel at home or at business.

I once asked on a site about this problem. One guy – an Excel specialist – told me that the file I attached for scrutiny was including some code that cannot be edited by Windows Phone. So far, so good.

My question is:
  • Is it possible to *cleanse* an Excel file from any

HOW IT ALL STARTED
I signed up at the Microsoft Stream Preview website, using an Personal Microsoft Account ID, not realizing that it was a service meant for Office 365 for Business. Usually Microsoft websites check if the account is a business account or not before accepting he email id. Microsoft Stream, however accepted my Personal Microsoft Account ID and signed me up, classifying the ID as a Business Microsoft ID as it created an Office 65/Azure tenant.

THE PROBLEM THAT THAT CREATED
Was unable to access mails at outlook.com which came up with a something-went-wrong error message when we tried to sign in. A little research on Bing (yes, I am a loyal Microsoft Insider) and I found that the solution was to switch my primary e-mail id with an alias.

WHAT I AM USING
Lumia 950 with Windows 10 Mobile, Version: 1703 (Build: 10.0.15063.414)
Surface Pro with Windows 10, Version: 1703 (Build: 10.0.15063.413)

WHAT WORKS WHAT DOES NOT
Surface: Everything works with the new primary alias
Mobile:  Mail and People Apps on the Mobile not syncing (Error code: 0x85010014)  Error Message with the new primary alias. Everything else works

WHAT I HAVE TRIED
Deleting and re-adding the Mail/People accounts about 50 times. Tweaking the settings in the Outlook account trying different sync and mail server settings (hotmail/eas). Hard resetting the Mobile as the Apps | Apps & Features | Advanced Options | Reset button is greyed out.

I had a need for a “colour picker” for the nice original Windows Phone colour palette. The codes are impossible to remember, so I was looking for a method to point and click to copy a value for later to be pasted into a property pane.

As I wanted all values presented in the three often used formats for CSS, VBA, and as hex values - and had the colour values as an enumeration – I also needed some converter functions. Not much, and with a simple loop all field values could be set.

However, writing code for 63 fields looked like a daunting task. This is where WithEvents came in and solved that with a few handfuls of code.

I wrote it all up here as there are so few examples found demonstrating WithEvents:

    https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/29554/Create-Windows-Phone-Colour-Palette-and-Selector-using-WithEvents.html

with a reference to John Colby’s old tutorial on WithEvents for the interested reader. The only principal difference to John’s example is, that I didn’t use 63 variables but a collection (as I learned from Shamil Salakhetdinov) to hold the controls.

The colour palette of Windows Phone I have previously used here:

Windows Phone Theme Colours
The Windows Phone Theme Colours is a tight, powerful, and well balanced palette. This tiny Access application makes it a snap to select and pick a value. And it doubles as an intro to implementing WithEvents, one of Access' hidden gems.

Gustav,

I adapted my application to this and I could not believe how efficient and easy this was to do. I see myself deleting a HUGE amount of redundant code and using Class Module in the future. They have always intimidated me and quite frankly, I did not see the use of them until I needed something similar to what you did here. The link you provided to John Colby's Blog was spot-on and VERY informative.

A question on this method however, the particular functionality I am trying to achieve applies to Text and Combo boxes. Reading JC's Blog led me to believe that I would need another Class to handle each type of Object.

Did I comprehend that correctly or can I include more than one Object in this Class?

Great stuff!

Yes, you implement many classes, perhaps one for each type of control.

Or you can modify this check:

    If Control.ControlType = acTextBox Then

to check for other control types as well. And then either apply the same or different methods.

Or do both. Or add more conditions; for example only apply a method to a control with a control source.

those two areas codes on a cell phone are a status symbol

But I am from a technical background and I know that older phone numbers have longer history so more likely to get spam

Does a phone number ever get less spam

Are you advising clients to change their number to the new area code (that is not a status symbol)

I have just downloaded Nokia PC suite version 7.1.180.94 with the intention of acquiring the phone numbers and names from my Nokia Lumina 520.
However, when I run the installation program Nokia_PC_Suite_eng_us_web.exe, I get an error message :
Your phone is in file transfer mode and cannot be used with PC suite. Quit file transfer mode from the phone if you want to use the phone with PC suite.

So how do I  Quit file transfer mode  ??

There are no obvious options in the settings section.

How to debug in Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone with Emulator running?

When breakpoints are set, while running in debug mode with the emulator, we get the message
"The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document.”

The literature on this topic suggests symbols and modules. There is no such thing as modules in 'Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone' or we are missing something. Please suggest!

Also another question: Web Service calls working for Android and iOS - NOT working in Windows Phone 7 emulator. Please suggest any literature on this!

We have the hybrid SCCM Intune configuration that has been working for the last 11 months no problem. Our Company Portal App is signed correctly.
We have noticed today that new or existing users cannot enrol their devices into Workplace with the "We Weren't able to setup this account on your phone" error, which is normally linked to a Company Portal issue.
The Company Portal that is installed on currently enrolled phones has stopped working as well. When you try and open the app on the phone is says "Problem with app" There's a problem with Company Portal. First, try to buy the app... Strange as we obviously already have it, if you click buy it takes you to the store and displays WP SSP WAVE H as an application published by Internal Beta Account. Is this the app in its basic form that I originally signed?
It seems like I need to re deploy the Company Portal App again but wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem before.

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Will soon get a new Win Phone.

Don't want my Outlook data synced to the cloud.

Want only local sync between  phone & my PC.

Years back, when Microsoft started to require Sync-to-the-Cloud-by-default for Outlook on PC & Winphone folks realized a workaround.

"If I go to settings->email+accounts and change the server to 127.0.0.1 (local host) contacts etc. aren't synced, and stored on the handset. " 
http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-phone-8/279833-how-stop-automatic-syncing-contacts-calendar-notes.html#post2502489

Is this still true?  What I want to do is sync the data in my PC Outlook with ONLY the phone.  So that, my Outlook information isn't in the cloud, or passed to the cloud.  Move the data from my PC to the phone via a plain old USB cable.  Seems like this strategy above says that's possible?  

Need an answer from someone who's successfully tried this, or any other workaround that achieves the same thing.

Thanks!!

Hi,

I'm looking for a real simple template on capturing a barcode scan for windows phone.

I've found some resource on google but haven't managed to find any working code as yet!

I was hoping that some experts have already managed to get a simple barcode reader working and can help.

We have a lot of Motorola MC9000 Windows Mobile 5.0 devices and we need to automatically set the date/time on them. I've tried all the registry settings that MS recommends. Below is what we have. The problem is that it doesn't work. These are fresh factory loaded RF guns   The official System info says Windows CE Version 5.0 Build 1400.

Any help would be appreciated. If there is a way to do this w/o registry settings that's ok too, but from what we've found .reg files are the only way to persistently load settings into these.
