Yeah, but upgrading keep security patches coming. If you want to keep a vulnerable system running, I guess you shouldn't upgrade. Well, it'll keep running until someone finds it and exploits the holes.
Actually that deserves a downvote (though I did not).
When the management of a company decides that the program must be able to run on such old Windows, a software developer working for that company must fulfil that requirement. If he refuses to do so, he will be replaced by someone else who is not so stubborn...
Generally, a decision for such old systems or for programming in VB6 is not a decision of the individual developer but by somebody else!
Yes, I know that. It's also up to everyone to maintain the security of the system. If managemnet is unwilling to change, they get replaced to. Especially if someone breaks into their system with known security vulnerabilities.
If customers find out, they leave and no more company.
I know the system works. I've been riding in it for the last 30+ years.
Hell, I know of a bank that still runs crap on NT4! Do you think I put my money in there?!
Nah i got a problem here, call it mini MicrosoftWord.
The problem is, whenever I show the form with RichTextBox inside it, the program freeze for three second (only the first time).
To handle that, i show and dispose the form when i'm on the splash form (with progress bar) so that it freeze while progessing.
Is it possible to show form but user don't see it?
Yes i mean to make it invisible.
I tried this way,
Dim form AsNew form()
and this one too,
Dim form AsNew form()
form.Visible = False
This is the craziest problem I've ever seen. I have a text file containing a line of financial data for each minute of the trading day -- 400/day. I extract 4 data for each minute, calculate a ratio for two of these data points, and print what I've extracted plus the calculated value as one line, comma delimited, to a final text file. I do this process line by line. All variables are zeroed out between loops.
The calculated value is a ratio, and when the ratio is below 1, it erratically prints to the file with an order of magnitude error -- e.g., 2.567 instead of .0267. This happens consistently inside a any one file when I repeat the routine, but NOT consistently among days. There is no pattern of frequency of occurrence within the file other than when I repeat the processing, the same minutes show the error. The errors are spread throughout the day's data. The only common factor is that for files showing the error, the denominator of the calculation is alway larger than the numerator. It never occurs when the numerator is larger.
I've stepped through those days showing the errors, watched the ratio values as they are calculated, and never see an error. It only appears in the printed file. Have also tried all kinds of formatting statements and the errors always appear, for the same minutes. I've examined the original data file and an intermediate processing file and can find no irregularities.
I guess my question is what could be happening in the Print to file process that causes this error? It appears with both the Print and Write statements.
I've been looking for some help with regard to using the ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.GZip library to stream read embedded gz files (i.e. File1.tar.gz has a.tar.gz, b.tar.gz, etc). I can use this library to successfully read .gz files which do not contain embedded .gz files but it's been difficult finding a solution to read embedded files. The following is a snippet of what I currently have. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
ForEach fi As FileInfo In di.GetFiles("*.gz")
fullPath = dirpath + fi.ToString
Dim gzips As GZipInputStream
gzips = New GZipInputStream(File.OpenRead(fullPath))
reader = New StreamReader(gzips)
DoWhileNot readLine IsNothing'---- work on readLine
readLine = reader.ReadLine
I wondering how you could encrypt a string a text in a textbox in 128-bit AES and also 256-bit AES (if applicable), and be able to de-crypt it (like binary code converting). It would also help if it was a few short lines of code or short as possible (if applicable).
I want to load and use two different versions of same dll in my project. only solution i could think of is to use same dll with different namespace, but I cannot change the dll since its third party. so i am stuck here...is it even possible? if yes then how?
Not sure if this is the right forum, since i want to achieve this in vb.net application so posted here. any kind of help is appreciated!
Thanks for reply.
these are .NET DLLs. basically our organization are shifting from an older version of third party API to its latest version. and we want to make this transition smooth, we want to use both for a while and gradually replace the functionality from older version to new version.
