Last night, I upgraded this site to Community Server 2007. The upgrade took a while as this site requires changes to the CS codebase and other tweaking. Other than that, the upgrade went OK for the most part and there are a couple of issues to work out. With this upgrade comes three new Community Server downloads:
Community Server 2007 Contact Form Add-On
Community Server 2007 StrongCoders.CSJobs
Community Server 2007 Shipping Blog Skins with Ad Support
The contact form is the one I use on this site, so it also doubles as an advertising inquiry form.
I installed Windows Vista on my laptop and it came time to install GhostDoc. During the installation process it encountered an error and as a result I couldn’t finish the installation. In order to install GhostDoc setup needs elevated administrator privileges. However, the msi file doesn’t have the Run as administrator option when you right-click it. The work around is what I found here. Create a batch file with the following:
msiexec /i c:\PathToGhostDoc\GhostDoc1.9.5.msi
Then run the batch file as administrator and GhostDoc will successfully install.
This chat was much more constructive than the last one. No silly or topic questions. The date of the next chat hasn’t been set yet, but stay tuned for the date. The transcript for the April 19 chat is now posted and can be downloaded here.
I’m happy to announce that this June I will be moving back to California. Also, later this month, I will be joining Avanade. I’m excited and look forward to starting a South Orange County user group, which I was about to start before I moved to Virginia.
It turned out not to be an April Fools joke and my MVP status was indeed renewed today. Here’s to another year in the MVP program.
