Dags att väcka liv i bloggen

Nu är det dags att väcka liv i bloggen igen. Jag laborerar bland annat med lite med nya teman för wordpress.

Finns det någon därute som kan rekommendera några bra teman att testa? Lämna en kommentar här eller hör av er på twitter @jlonnqvist.

Nokia Booklet 3G

Jag har under en längre tid funderat på om jag ska införskaffa en netbook, verkar så otroligt smidigt att ha med sig istället för en normalstor laptop.

Nu har Nokia presenterat en som verkar riktigt nice, ska bli kul att se den i verkligheten när den väl kommer.


My blog has a new home!

I’ve finally completed my move from Typepad to a self hosted WordPress blog. Hopefully this gives me more flexibility to try out new features.

List uninstall strings using powershell

If you find yourself in the need of the uninstall string of an application and you have powershell installed on the machine, you could easily get a complete list of all installed applications and their uninstall string using the following command:

dir HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall | foreach-object {get-itemproperty $_.PSPath} | select-object DisplayName,uninstallstring

DPM 2007 Error 3013 on Windows Server 2008

I’ve just installed Microsoft Data Protection Manager 2007 on a Windows Server 2008 RTM, and I ran in to an issue when trying to access the report functionality of DPM.

The error message that you get in DPM is:

3013: DPM could not connect to to SQL Server Reporting Services server because of IIS connectivity issues.

DPM will give you a suggestion on how to fix this, but that didn’t work for me.

If you try to access SQL Reporting Services directly from Internet Explorer, you will get an error message like this:

HTTP Error 403.1 Forbidden
You have attempted to run a CGI, ISAPI, or other executable program from a directory that does not allow executables to run.

This error led me to a KB article from Microsoft KB938245 which explains the error.

At the bottom of the article you’ll find this text:

Problem 2

When you run a script to configure the virtual directory for the report server, you receive the following error message:

HTTP Error 403.1 Forbidden
You have attempted to run a CGI, ISAPI, or other executable program from a directory that does not allow executables to run.

Cause of Problem 2

This problem occurs because of a new permission requirement in IIS 7.0. This permission requirement is for ISAPI extensions that use a wildcard (*) script mapping.

Workaround for Problem 2

To work around this problem, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type inetmgr, and then click OK.

2. In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, expand Web Sites, expand Default Web Site, and then click the virtual directory for the report server.

3. Under Features View, double-click Handler Mappings.

4. Under Actions, click Edit Handler Permissions.

5. Click to select the Scripts check box, and then click OK.

This does however contain one little error, in step 4 above you should click on Edit Feature Permissions.

That solved the reporting issue for me.

How to make gmail work with SonyEricsson K800i

I’ve struggled to get gmail’s imap implementation to work on a Sony Ericsson K800i for a couple of hours. Then I found another blog post that threw me in the right direction. It seems that gmail are using ssl certificates that are not available by default on a K800i phone. But after importing the following three certificates I was able to both send and receive messages.

Gmail Certificates

I’ve set the phone to use IMAP/SSL for incoming email on port 993 and SMTP/TLS on port 587 for outgoing email.

I hope that can help somebody else that wants to use their phone for email.

HTC TyTN gets Windows Mobile 6

I just got back from a needed vaccation and realized that HTC finally shipped a rom upgrade for their TyTN device. It can be downloaded from HTC e-Club after you have registered your device.

I’m currently upgrading my phone and will get back to you with the results after a day of testing or so…

Microsoft SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard 1.0

SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard enables the deployment of SQL Server databases into a hosted environment on either a SQL Server 2000 or 2005 server. It generates a single SQL script file which can be used to recreate a database (both schema and data) in a shared hosting environment where the only connectivity to a server is through a web-based control panel with a script execution window. If supported by the hosting service provider, the Database Publishing Wizard can also directly upload databases to servers located at the shared hosting provider.

Optionally, SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard can integrate directly into Visual Studio 2005 and/or Visual Web Developer 2005 allowing easy publishing of databases from within the development environment.
