What’s New in Visual C++ 2010

What’s New in Visual C++ 2010 This topic introduces new and enhanced Visual C++ features in Visual Studio 2010. Amazon: Bestsellers Electronics and Photo Visual C++ Projects and the Build System MSBuild Visual C++ solutions and projects are now built by using MSBuild, which replaces VCBUILD.exe. MSBuild is the same flexible, extensible, XML-based build tool that is used by the other Visual Studio languages and project types. Consequently, Visual C++ project files now use an XML file format, and have the .vcxproj file name extension. Visual C++ project files from earlier versions of Visual Studio are automatically converted to the new file format. For more information, see MSBuild (Visual C++). VC++ Directories The VC++ Directories setting now resides in two places. Use project property pages to set per-project values for VC++ directories. Use the Property Manager and a property sheet to set global, per-configuration values for VC++ directories. Amazon: Bestsellers Electronics and Photo Project-to-Project Dependencies In earlier releases, you could define dependencies between projects that were stored in the solution file.

Philips NetTV and FritzBox 72xx

I recently bought a new LCD TV from Philips : The 47″ PFL8404H/12 with NetTV. Philips 47 PFL 8404 H 119,4 cm (47 Zoll) Full-HD Ambilight LCD-Fernseher mit integriertem DVB-T / DVB-C Tuner schwarz Actually, I chose this TV because of two features it has: 1. The display : Full HD, 47″ , non reflective having the “Pixel Precise” feature 2. the Net TV: which means practically the you have an Internet connection in your TV set. I have the FritzBox! 7240 from AVM which is a goot DSL modem and router. The problem However, after installating the TV and connecting it to the Internet I noticed that it looses, apparently randomly the connection to the router. When connecting the old FritzBox 7170, everything worked as expected. The reason All FritzBoxes have a nice feature which tries to make the device eco friendly (aka “green”) by reducing the power consumption. So, it has some automatic detection if a LAN port is used or not.

No spam, please !

Have a look at this picture taken today. I live there and those are the post boxes of all the inhabitants of that building. My box is in the middle (see the notes). That sticker does the job 🙂 I never received a commercial … NEVER !!! Can you believe this ? My neighbor has the same sticker and he received spam. I didn’t … I would call this pure luck, but, again, I never received those commercial papers.

Conceptronic CHD3LAN NAS Server

I bought from eBay a brand new Networked Attached Storage server without HDD for 51 euro. Cheap and nice toy.. but … The company from which I bought it, advised me to upgrade the firmware via the web interface. And I did, poor me 🙁 Needless to say that the box is dead now. During the upgrade, I got a timeout from the box and since then it just didn’t work. I wrote to the support of Conceptronic and followed their advice, but without success. Still trying.
