I couldn’t find a list of exceptions for .NET anywhere on the web, although, I didn’t look hard. Below is a list of the exceptions that are in the System namespace. The exceptions in bold are, what I would consider, the most common.

Windows 7 and Windows Installer Error “Another installation is in progress”

All morning long I’ve been battling my Windows 7 system. I finally found out that the error code which reads: “Error 1500. Another installation is in progress. You must complete that installation before continuing this one.” can be attributed to the InProgress key found in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\InProgress After doing a little searching on the web, I found that Microsoft has a program called msizap.exe which can be found in the Windows Installer SDK. The problem with that is that the SDK itself is an .msi file. I didn’t really want to install the full SDK anyway. So I … Continue reading Windows 7 and Windows Installer Error “Another installation is in progress”

Content on Non-Secured Site When Browsing Secured Web Application or Web Site

Nothing frustrates me more as when I try to login on a secured site and images, CSS, javascript files, and other content files are not secured. For instance, I went to retrieve/reset my password on last.fm and found this: A general rule of thumb is that your content should be hosted on a self-hosted or third party content delivery network (CDN) on both HTTP and HTTPS protocols. Secured pages should only reference HTTPS linked files. var dzone_url = ‘http://weblogs.asp.net/jgaylord/archive/2009/06/15/content-on-non-secured-site-when-browsing-secured-web-application-or-web-site.aspx’; var dzone_title = ‘Content on Non-Secured Site When Browsing Secured Web Application or Web Site’; var dzone_blurb = ‘Content on Non-Secured … Continue reading Content on Non-Secured Site When Browsing Secured Web Application or Web Site
