    It was like the day after Challenger that NASA stood for need-another-seven-astronauts. Seems humor as a band aide is a real thing.
  2. Re: Error -2147467259 (0x80004005) with dots in query string

    MapPath does just that though - doesn't it? It turns a virtual folder into a mapped path on the actual server so you can then access files.

  5. Re: Printer.DeviceName gives wrong answer in Win10

    Does it have to do with the Win10 feature where MS manages the default printer? Can you turn off MS managing your printers and see if that changes anything?
  6. Re: Error -2147467259 (0x80004005) with dots in query string

    Does "mappath" actually need an existing folder to work, or can you just pass "Example" and then when you get the result back do a REPLACE on "Example" to make it "Example...Example123"?
  7. Re: Error -2147467259 (0x80004005) with dots in query string

    I don't see how "period" characters are not allowed - they do not seem to have a valid "escape" syntax.

    Show some code please.

    On the surface what you say is obviously true, but for maintainability and furture enhancements - someone could change that to <> instead of = and then you have big problems.
