    Re: Building a Google Equivalent

    As long as he uses those Firefox tools a web secretary, er "developer," can do anything with his markup languages.

    Re: 64 Bit integer

    Well a Double doesn't have the bit layout of an integer, so generally no. But it depends entirely on what you are trying to do.

    Re: Windows 10 will be Windows 10

    Version-lie appcompat should at least defuse the potential problem - assuming it applies to installers, which for normal MSI packages it did not in the past.

    Re: 64 Bit integer

    Currency is a 64-bit integer type. It is just treated as if scaled by 10,000 in order to hold 4 simulated decimal places.

  7. Re: Get serial number of all hard disks and partitions in it

    As they mention for DiskId32, to get the serial number on XP w/o admin rights you might try the "SCSI backdoor" (searches should turn up info on that technique).

    It isn't "historical" but "implementation."

    It only works if the outer array is Variant. Only a Variant element can contain an array value.

    You never assign anything to your cIter, so of course it remains 0.

    Your exp2 and exp3 are expressions (Boolean comparisons here), not assignments. Then you discard the result if the IIf()...

    Re: unique identifier per computer

    How often does a machine ever have CPU Serial enabled? I had the idea that was only done in shipping systems for a very short time before outrage caused it to be disabled by default on new PCs.

  15. Re: Compile error : Ambiguous name detected: ChartData .

    No, VBA is never translated to machine code: it gets interpreted. Much as VB6 code run in the IDE or when compiled to p-code does.

    Most .Net code also gets intepreted except where the CLR decides...
  16. Re: Compile error : Ambiguous name detected: ChartData .

    I'm sure a lot of it is politics. But VBA doesn't have a code generator and just keeps/runs the intermediate p-code, it uses a divergent set of UI widgets (forms and controls), and lots of other...

    Show 'Method call on default object in current namespace (i.e. Me.Show).

    Some alternatives include IIS (supports a separate WebDAV extension), BarracudaDrive, and Apache Jackrabbit Standalone Server.
