    Answered Single instance - duplicated

    I did that and it works fine now. Thanks very much for the info :cool: Unfortunately not, maybe because i'm using Community 2017 version?

    Answered Single instance - duplicated

    I wrote app1 that had 'make single instance application' checked in the app properties. All good there. I then needed app2, which is an admin version of app1, and the code wasn't going to be substantially different to app1 so i took a copy of it and did the renaming things (the folder...

    Office object library versions

    Hmmm... just reading about 'Automatic Binding Redirection'. If i develop on the machine that has the older version of office on it (which i do) and compile to framework 4.5.1 and presumably later (which i do) then run the compiled .exe on the machine with the newer office version on it then...

    Office object library versions

    This has bugged me for a while and i'm hoping for some 'train of thought' advice to aid my learning. On my laptop i have office 2010. I write an app that pulls in data from an excel spreadsheet. That app references 'Microsoft Excel 14.0 Object library' and 'Microsoft Office 14.0 Object...

    SQLite app distribution

    For anyone interested i just got time to look into this issue and have the solution. I thought all computers at the company where i work had the same staging image on them, they don't. Bad assumption on my part, of course. Some have .net framework 4.6 and some 4.5. I was compiling my app to 4.6...

    SQLite app distribution

    Thanks for the pointers, John, quite a bit there for me to be reading up on but all good learning. I should have mentioned that I am not 'publishing' the solution, only copy/pasting the structure i mentioned onto the target machines as they require it. I thought by publishing that the user would...

    SQLite app distribution

    I recently developed an app to be used by many people in my workplace. It utilises a SQLite db that is used to store/retrieve data. All is good on that side until i distributed to a select few to start testing. For most it ran fine, but for a couple the app loaded normally but absolutely no...

    Designer in high res.

    If i have my laptop in full res (2560x1440) then the graphical side of the VS designer is unusable: I have been changing my res to 1366x768, then rebooting, then starting work again. Is there a trick i am missing that would allow me to work in full res and thus avoid this annoyance?

    MS Access images to WinForms application

    Still nobody able to help with this? I tried to follow jmcilhinney's example here: Saving Images in Databases It looked simple enough but no joy. The method of adding images to the database is copy/paste from web page. Error is: An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred...

    MS Access images to WinForms application

    Hey JuggaloBrotha, no worries on the misreading, I appreciate you're trying to help me! I already have the data in a byte array but then I cant assign it to the picturebox in my vb.net application because (as i understand it) the OLE wrapper must be stripped from the array in order to leave me...

    MS Access images to WinForms application

    JuggaloBrotha - thanks for the reply, but doesn't really answer my question! I've no option not to use the MS Access database as its used for other things. How can I convert the picture stored in the OLE object to a regular picture? In my WinForms app I have code that successfully connects to...

    MS Access images to WinForms application

    I've been searching for a few days now and getting nowhere - or going round in circles! Same question asked in a lot of places but no real answer that nails it (that i can see) I have an MS Access 2010 database and one of its fields is set as OLE object and has pictures in it. How can I convert...

    Datagridview - which image?

    This is superb advice and obviously something i didn't know, but do now. I understand my mistake and am modifying my code to implement this now. Thanks for taking the time to point this out to me, the learning continues...

    Datagridview - which image?

    Cannot believe i've asked this question again when i actually answered it myself last time i asked. I have no note of that solution hence asking again. Now noted! Apologies all. (Solution: image has a tag property - use that)

    Datagridview - which image?

    I have a datagridview and one of the columns is of type image. In this image cell on each row there is an image taken from the resources file which, depending on the situation, could be my.resources.image1, my.resources.image2, my.resources.image3 and so on. If, sometime later in my code, i...

    Datagrid image

    For anyone that may find it useful (as the many that read the question didn't know!), the simple answer is to put the image name in the 'Tag' property.

    Wake up failing

    Apologies for not coming back sooner - and thanks for your offer of help but it seems that a graphics driver update has resolved this issue. No more to do on this.

    Datagrid image

    I know this sounds like a daft question - maybe i have brain freeze at the mo? I'm adding an image to a cell in a datagrid thus: frmMain.dgAlist(8, frmMain.dgAlist.currentrow.index).value = My.Resources.R1 and thats fine. But what i want now is to get the info of which image is in that...

    Wake up failing

    Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I wrote an app in Community 2015 .net 4.5, more as a learning curve than anything else. Its an MP3 player that uses WMP to do the work. All is ok except the following situation: 1. my app is playing music 2. after few mins screen saver comes...
