Active Desktop and Windows Server 2003

If you are developing on Windows Server 2003, remote access to the console, like in Windows XP Pro, is handy. By default, you get a new session, but if you want to finish something you were working on at work from home later in the evening, connecting to the console is the only way:

BizTalk 2004 and small schema
Today, I came across something totally weird with BizTalk 2004. I'm hoping someone out there will have an explanation for this one. When we want to build a web service for BizTalk, the first thing we do is create an XML Schema. This gets compiled into code using xsd.exe. Once done, we compile xsd.exe's output (together with other schemes) into an assembly. Our web service that BizTalk consumes uses this assembly to define the documents that we want BizTalk to use when communicating with our web service. ......

Halo 2

Of course, I ran in to problems right away, not the smallest being that Windows Media Player cannot auto-sync content with my Pocket PC (IPAQ 2210). Looking on the web, it was suggested to use the file sync feature of ActiveSync. However, there is no option to copy to a flash card, just to /My Documents which is in RAM. According to Microsoft you can adjust the registry on your device and desktop ......

Welcome to my blog!
I've been lurking around in the blog community for far too long. A big kudos to Jeff for setting up this blog to get me going. I am the architect in a small software group. I'm currently working on a couple projects, one of which uses BizTalk 2004, SharePoint Services, InfoPath, and, of course, .NET (mainly in C#). I would have to say that it was BizTalk 2004 that drove me to this point in my life. While I was learning enough of BizTalk to figure out if it was a good move to base our next product ......
