    Re: VB command line

    You can also build an application that will manipulate files through the windows program... Is it specifically an antivirus program that you wish to make, or just something that manipulates files?

    Re: VB command line

    assembly language will operate in real-mode -- Or you could write the changes into a batch file and run it before windows loads.

    Re: What IS Assembly??

    Good point. But I have successfully compiled programs with significant errrors such as no terminator in a string or calling the wrong memory location.

    Re: What IS Assembly??

    I simplified. Sue me.

    "BIOS" or "Basic Input/Output System" is, indeed, relevant to interrupts. From mnemonic "Assembly Code" you can call BIOS interrupts or DOS interrupts. In fact, DOS...
  5. Re: VB.NET 2005 -- "build" does not work as expected ...

    Simple and useful. I'll do that next time.
  6. Re: VB.NET 2005 -- "build" does not work as expected ...

    Well, it's the only method that has worked for me thus far. Is there a way to make a button in one form activate a control in another form?
  7. Re: VB.NET 2005 -- "build" does not work as expected ...

    possibly resolved. Tried a third machine, where it works as designed. My new theory is that the test computer did not have the. NET framework.
  8. Re: VB.NET 2005 -- "build" still does not work as expected ...

    Okay, so I went to every form and deleted the RealPlayer control, which I was calling "Real1". Then I imported COM framework controls, and used the Windows Media Player control, which I called...
  9. RESOLVED: Learning databases, problem with tutorial: VB.NET 2005

    Resolution: I built the database in an excel spreadsheet, disguised it as a form, and then used VBA to make it record on the next sheet, and analyze the data for output on the third sheet.

    I'll change it over to WMP. Argh.

    Re: Where is the Basic, in Visual Basic?

    Actually, I think that something like that sort of existed... I'm referring to batch file programming.

    It was originally intended to just allow programmers to debug a batch of applications at a...
  12. VB.NET 2005 -- "build" does not work as expected ...

    Hi, Folks.

    When I used VB 5.0, I had a handle on the "Build" process. I'd make an .exe and put it on the machine I wished it to run on. If it required copious data or reference files, I'd either...
  13. Re: Learning databases, problem with tutorial: VB.NET 2005

    you are correct. I cut and pasted. I should have edited them aftr but I was more concrned with getting the database working. I did check out the string and it looked right but I'll try it the other...
  14. Re: Learning databases, problem with tutorial: VB.NET 2005

    Good Morning, BTW.

    On Edit:
    I am able to test the database connection successfully, which is my best result with databases to date.

    Where would I look for an option to force x86 only?
  15. Re: Learning databases, problem with tutorial: VB.NET 2005

    I found VB.net 2005 available at a reasonable price, and I wanted to buy a full version (i.e. not an express or "Learning Edition" so that I could be certain that it would compile stand-alone...
  16. Re: Learning databases, problem with tutorial: VB.NET 2005

    I apologize for the oversight. It seemed very generic to me, and so I dismissed it/forgot it without thinking that it might make sense to others. My error.

    If I were to take dunfiddlin's advice,...
  17. Re: Learning databases, problem with tutorial: VB.NET 2005

    I likely have eels.

    The stated error was singularly unhelpful: "Oledb Exception Unhandled."
    On clicking "More Details" I get " {Could not find installable ISAM} "
  18. RESOLVED: Learning databases, problem with tutorial: VB.NET 2005

    I'm trying to get the hang of .NET databases, after having a decent grasp of them in VB 5.0. It's a new animal, though, so I'm starting with a fresh mindset.

    I found this tutorial by Mendhak, ...
  19. Re: Seriously, a book suggestion on VB.NET changes from Classic...

    Shaggy,

    I hear what you're saying, and I'm really not looking for an encyclopedia so much as a road map. Even something that just explained the relationship between the connection, the data...
  20. Re: Seriously, a book suggestion on VB.NET changes from Classic...

    Thanks, that looks on-point and very applicable. At the very least, that should give me a framework for further study.
  21. Re: Seriously, a book suggestion on VB.NET changes from Classic...

    I did find this tutorial, and I'm going to give this a shot to see if it'll work for me:

    But thanks for the tip; I do appreciate it.

    And for that matter, if anyone knows a really good tutorial that lays it out from scratch, I'd love to see that also -- for either printing or data...

    Thanks for the suggestion and the request. I appreciate both.

    I did find one book "Start to Finish" which promises to build a Database ap with printable reports, so I got that one, but I remain...
  25. Re: how can i write in sector 0 on hard disk

    There are interrupts that perform absolute read and absolute write functions, but they are very dangerous. you can ruin hard drives by writing on the wrong spots.

  29. VS 2005 Re: Tutorials for Serial ports / threading???

    Thanks, DBasnett, it looks like this points me in the right direction. I still have some fine tuning to do and some debugging ahead, but I am passing data to and from, at least.
  30. VS 2005 Re: Tutorials for Serial ports / threading???

    @ Stavris, Thanks for replying. I have not tried the DataReceived event. I was concerned that this might force me to use a handshake, and the data stream I wish to test may or may not use a...

    I'm looking for any tutorials on serial ports. I'm working on a project to read a serial port, and this is my current method:

    Re: ownappname://

    I don't personally know, but I think that since it pertains primarily to TCP/IP, the RFCs would be a good place to start. University of Ohio used to have a good set of online RFCs.
  33. Re: VB2005, how to refresh labels/textboxes

    Thank you all for the information. I appreciate the effort and the willingness to explain.
  34. Re: VB2005, how to refresh labels/textboxes

    This worked beautifully. Thank you.
  35. Re: VB2005, how to refresh labels/textboxes

    @ dbasnett & pradeep:

    Why is using a timer to keep track of time a bad idea, and why would threading.thread.sleep(1000) not be good for an application? Is it because the entire application...
  36. Re: VB2005, how to refresh labels/textboxes

    This looks like what I'm looking for.

    I would love to use a more complex timer routine -- the timer in VB5 was much simpler, as I recall it -- but I tend to go for the simple answer on the quick...
  37. Re: VB2005, how to refresh labels/textboxes

    Okay, I tried both of those tricks, the label1.invalidate and the thread.threading.sleep() (one at a time). I also played with the label1.show().

    The code still executes the same way: A long...
  38. Re: VB2005, how to refresh labels/textboxes

    Thanks, I finally settled on the "Sleep" method after trying a few tricks for "do while loop" and "for i, next i" but had trouble getting the timing right.

    I'll give this a try.

    Interesting. Thanks, I'll try that.
  40. Resolved: VB2005, how to refresh labels/textboxes
