    how to suppress error messages when using process

    This would do exactly what I need, only I need to do it from the VB.Net code. It is not possible for me to add the macro to the documents, since they are generated by another (ancient) system. Thanks, Rick

    How to use application keys?

    Hi, Most applications today have some form of activation, to protect it against illegal use (user didn't pay for it). Usually the user has to enter a key when installing the application. The key is then checked against some algorithm to see if it is a valid key. I was wondering how to...

    Application To Application Communication.

    Hi Kannan, I found the .NET Application Updater Component on the internet (actually someone posted the link on another forum). This little component can be used to let your application update itself, using http-dav for the download. In the example they use IIS as their webserver, but I don't...

    How to get information from AssemblyInfo

    Thanks for the help, but I found a better way to update my application: Use the .NET Application Updater Component. It is written by Microsoft, and even the sourcecode is supplied. I'm still a bit confused by the security part, but that will come to me when I try this I suppose. So, anyone...

    Application To Application Communication.

    Hi, I don't know if it is possible to communicate directly to the application, but when two applications are on different computers you'd use sockets to communicate. I thisnk this should work just fine when both apps are on the same machine... I can't help you with the download part, since I...

    Display popup messages from system tray

    Thank you very much!!! This is great! You've just helped me out big time! But I still have a few questions: 1) You use Text1.Handle.ToInt32 to tell the tooltip the location of the textbox (if I interpreted this correctly). But I want to display a tooltip from a notifyicon, and the...

    Display popup messages from system tray

    Well, I found some C# code on msdn.microsoft.com that should do this. Normally converting C# code to VB code isn't to much of a problem for me, but this has got me puzzled. I think it's because of the struct used for NOTIFYICONDATA. Can anybody help me with this? Here's the C# code: typedef...

    press any key to exit

    Ok, bad example. As you correctly noted, when running on a schedule (like every 3 hours) the output isn't exactly wanted :) But the app can be run manually as well... So it has an parameter that turns off the output. And you are right, I should use a service for this. But my boss didn't want...
