Steve / Brad etc...
I think we all understand that the last big upgrade caused some irritating problems which have been difficult to resolve - BUT...
To quote probably the best example, I've...

Many thanks Steve. One more thing...
I don't know if it's still the case - but immediately after the "upgrade" users suddenly needed to set a 'limit' on how far back a search would go. The default...

Yep, you're absolutely right. Typing that text into Google brings up a whole bunch of results (all of them perfectly valid).
Why can't we make searching work any more on this site? It seemed...

If I try to run an advanced search for posts containing the word declpsec and my own user name (John E) it only throws up 1 x result. But I'm pretty certain I've used the word declspec in more than...

Yeah, or I suppose the other option is to add one of those "captcha" utilities to our form. Although they can be annoying for a genuine user I can fully understand why they've become so popular. What...

Aaaargh! It seems that I'd simply forgotten to join the Win8.1 machine to my Windows 7 Homegroup. Having just joined the Homegroup, networking is now working as expected. So that's one issue solved....

Hmmm... on my home network I have just 2 x PC's - one running Windows 7 and the other running Windows 8.1. From the 8.1 machine I've only shared 1 x folder and I've set it up such that all classes...

Our products work for 30 days before requiring the user to register. It's a crude (but reasonably effective) way of deterring piracy. At the end of the 30 days a dialog box pops up with a hyperlink....

I find Windows 8 (strictly speaking, 8.1) to be quite reliable and it's a real joy to have an OS that boots up so quickly but it definitely has its irritations. For one thing, I can't stand the...

Can anyone recommend a good book for learning about the Python based build system, waf? I know there are some good online resources available, such as this one but personally, I tend to learn better...

Thanks! I knew it must be there somewhere :blush:

I just spent an hour thumbing through my MSVC handbooks and I'm embarrassed to say I couldn't find the answer to this... :blush:
Using only standard 'C' functions (_open() / _creat() or whatever)...

I discovered that Perl offers a system command which is quite simple to use - e.g.
@my_command = ( "the_exe_name", "arg1", "arg2", "etc" );
In fact, if the exe...

I'm building a complex C++ project using MSVC. As a pre-build step it runs a small Perl script (called "fixup.pl") whose job is to configure certain files which then get used later in the chain....

Can anyone recommend a utility that would allow me to display the resources in a DLL? i.e. if the DLL contains icons / bitmaps etc I'd be able to view them. I've a feeling that such a tool exists but...

Yeah, it looks like I've been unlucky with Windows 8 for some reason. I seem to get lots of problems with folder permissions. Even when they look right (and even if I run my apps as an Administrator)...

Good suggestion O'Reubens. I searched the macro script for any instances of 'exit()' and I only found one, which was returning the value of a system() call. So I guess that 255 or -1 is a value...

There doesn't seem to be a CodeGuru forum for questions about the M4 macro processor so I hope someone here will have some experience with it.
Basically, I'm moving a VC project from my Windows 7...

Thanks guys. I found Dependency Walker in my VC install directory and it revealed that one of my DLLs was linking to MSVCR80.dll as well as MSVCR80D.dll. At first I found this hard to believe because...

The above error message appears whenever I try to run the Debug version of a complex app that I'm building (the Release version runs okay). By "complex" I mean that it has around 40...

I've always had a soft spot for British actress, Samantha Janus. It shouldn't be too hard to spot her in this photo... :D

Arrrrrgh! Yes, it was a setting in the project (well, kinda). One of gtkmm's header files contains a flag which you set if you're building as a static library. When I first built gtkmm (about 3 years...

A good theory - but some of the library's functions have already been called by the time this bit's needed.
There are A LOT of exported symbols in this DLL (over 13,000). Could that be exceeding...

Oops... I forgot to show the namespaces in my example but in fact they are in the actual code :blush:
I built your sample Igor which is essentially identical to the original library code and it...
