Active Directory
2 replies , 8/5/2004, 6:56:46 PM
Hi there, I have just run dcpromo to take a W2K server out of a domain and then rebooted and searched across the VPN link to find the SBS2K Server and joined into that domain to get a member server. I now want to promote the member server to a domain controller at this remote site and later add a subnet to the site and services section of the main SBS Server. However I get the following message when running dcpromo to promote the member server: Active Directory Installation Wizard The wizard cannot gain access to the list of domains in the forest. The errror is: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Does this make sense? Any ideas? Many thanks Sam.

I started off copying my entire directory that visual made for me that contained my Web Application. When copied it as is to the server's wwwroot directory the page gave me an error, but when I took everything inside of the directory out and copied it straight into my wwwroot directory the app worked. Is this the only way to do it, or can you somehow keep the app in is on directory and copy it over like I tried the first time.

I'm creating an ASP.NET Web Application. I created a subdirectory from the root of the project called \C1003 Under C1003 there is a .aspx page. I cannot get the page to load correctly unless I manually copy the \bin directory from the root into the \C1003 directory after each time I rebuild my project. It's a problem with the Inherits="ChangeForms_TPA_KY.formsubit6" part.

OWC and Active Directory
0 replies , 9/22/2004, 7:12:48 AM
Hi I'm trying to run OWC on a network with Active Directory controls (AD). I'm having a Pivot Table with some FilterAxis variables, where one of them (market) is access-controlled by AD. I'm having the following strange problem. User 1 has access to all values of the 'market' variable. User 2 has access to only 3 of the 10 total values of 'market' (and NOT to the 'all' value). For User 1 everything works fine, he can see all markets, The Total or any chosen subset of Markets. For User 2 the problems occur. In the 'marker' filter variable only the 3 values that he has access to shows - so far so good. He can also choose any of the 3 markets and get the correct information of thoose. However - when he chooses all 3 markets, or any subset of two of the markets, I get this error message : Formula error - cannot bind: unknown menmber: "Pivot3Hier1MultiFilter__" What is wrong here? Is it because the pivot table tries to make a call to 'all' markets, and user 2 dont have sufficient privilegies to do so? How do I fix it? Regards Kasper S Nielsen

Creating Directory Structure from Cell Value

I previously posted this to the incorrect group. Sorry about that. I was able to create a partial structure from information in a previous post. Post Follows: From user: Farhad Dim Fldr As Scripting.FileSystemObject Set Fldr = New Scripting.FileSystemObject If Fldr.FolderExists("C:\Reports\2007-09-18") Then Else Fldr.CreateFolder "C:\Reports\2007-09-18" End If make sure you have referred to MicroSoft Scripting Runtime from Tools>References Thanks, -- Farhad Hodjat Question: Assuming that the value of Cell D2 is a date in the format 12/2/07 18:39. I would like to create the following file structure from that information Drive:\Place Where Data is Stored\Year\Month (two digit) Month (Verbal) \Day (two digit) So with the data from Cell D2 it would look like this: Drive:\Place Where Data is Stored\2007\12 December\02\ I have used the following adjustment to the data and can't seem to get the full file structure. "Drive:\Place Where Data is Stored\" & Format(Range("D2").Value, "YYYY") & "\" & Format(Range("D2").Value, "mm") & " " & Format(Range("D2").Value, "MMMM") &"\" & Format(Range("D2").Value, "dd") With the previous formula I either get an error or nothing happens at all or I get a directory structure like this "Drive:\Place Where Data is Stored\200711\ or Drive:\Place Where Data is Stored\200711November \. The workbook where the data is contained is the active workbook.

Building to Latest folder not IIS Virtual Directory
0 replies , 3/8/2005, 3:59:07 PM
In "Team Development with Visual Studio .NET and Visual Source Safe Ch 5" the build process is described as building to "Latest" or release numbered folders. I do builds for a number of applications using all sorts of languages and am now being asked to do builds for .NET applications. In the document above it looks to me like it is possible to build to a disk location for further distribution to the application servers. In the solution files that my application uses they seem to require IIS virtual directory locations to build to. We would like to build this not to a IIS server but to a release structure as described in the document. Is it possible to build .NET applications without using IIS? If so then how? Is there any documentation available that describes this option. I have a Third party build tool that uses solution files to build the applications so that's not an issue. Getting the script written to compile the applications is the issue. Thanks, gj

2 replies , 12/24/2003, 2:53:57 PM
Hi, is there a way to fully install Office into one single location? My laptop is clean and besides WindowsXP, it doesn't have any Microsoft product installed. I need to install MS Office for work, but I want to do this in a portable external USB disk. My problem is that if I install Office on that disk, it will install DLLs and other files into c:\windows anyway, which I definitely want to avoid. I'm a developer and am used to distribute applications that install everything into one place so the user can fully uninstall it. I'm looking for the same thing with Office (any version from 2000 to 2003). The other option was to create a bootable external USB disk and use this one only for Office, but Windows XP doesn't install. So my only option is to have Office "self-contained" without polluting my clean installation on the laptop. Possible? Thanks for any clue.

Hi All, I am looking for some help in creating a directory mail merge. I have data in spreadsheet in the following format. Publisher Books Email PubA Title One a****** PubA Title Two a****** PubA Title Three a****** PubB Book One x***** PubB Book Two x***** PubC One Volume m****** PubD Another Text e********* PubE First of Many Books l******** PubE Second of Many Books l******** PubE Third of Many Books l******** PubE Last of Many Books l******** I have created a directory mail merge in which I have got one letter for each publisher consisting of books list I need to order. i.e. One letter to PubA with all three titles. My letter varies with publisher according to number of books. The problem I am facing is how to email these letters to just one email Id using outlook. For example, I want to send my directory mail merge to Publisher PubA just once on his email a****** and not three times as shown in my excel spreadsheet. I have tried merging with new documents and emailing but it mails all 5 letters together to all the emails present in the spreadsheet. I want individual letters to specific recipients only. I hope I have explained my problem. Any feedback or help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance. -Aroma

I have an Excel COM add-in that is using ClickOnce for updates. My program also depends on a VBA add-in which must be installed at the same time but I hate to require our customers to run two installs. I could install the VBA add-in from my COM add-in if I could only find the directory that contains the installation files. But I can't find a way to reference that directory. I think my program knows in some way where the directory is because it checks there for program updates. My idea is that I could put the VBA add-in the same directory whenever there's a new version and my COM add-in could check for it and update it automatically (the code for installing VBA add-ins is simple). So is there any way to reference that directory from my COM add-in?

XP pro client cant see active directory
3 replies , 12/10/2003, 3:06:10 PM
I have 2003SBS PDC w/xp pro clients and NONE of my clients (although they seem to authenticate just fine) can browse active directory objects or even see active directory on the server. I get permission denied errors connecting to server or client shares. I used the network id wizard to join the domain and my users are all copies of the admin account. I know I'm doing something silly that can be easily fixed but I can't figure it out. I have changed the NICs and Switches thinking its hardware but to no avail. I have one nic in the server and Terminal Services loaded. DNS-wise I have the server pointing to itself and the clients pointing only to the server.

MSBuild: Controlling the default install directory
12 replies , 2/13/2008, 4:13:04 PM
We wrote some COM dotnet dlls to enhance a legacy desktop app that we aren't ready to rewrite as managed code. My direction is to install the dlls in the same directory as is used by the legacy app. MSBuild seems to have it's own idea of where that should be, and I haven't had any luck changing the default. I'm building from the 2005 IDE rather than command line. This ought to be dead simple, so I assume that I'm looking for the wrong keywords. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance, John

Staying it its own directory.
1 replies , 1/7/2006, 8:59:02 PM
I have a file with many vlookups from file1 to file2. The files are in the same directory. Then I want to be able to email the files to another user and they will put them in their directory. Their directory will not be the same path as my directory. I was playing with an example and it caused me a problem because when I set the files up in a new directory the vlookup() was still pointing to the old directory. Is there a way in the vlookup() formula to tell it to look in the current directory the file is located. Thank you for your help. Steven
