Cropper crashes on Windows Vista x64

by Aboo Bolaky 18. October 2008 09:02

Just installed Cropper (Release 1.9.1) onto my x64 machine. A Bad Image Exception is thrown at runtime. Consequence : Control Panel ->Programs and Features -> Uninstall Cropper.

Thankfully, Jeffrey Palermo has done a nice job in submitting a patch  [Change Set :18136] on CodePlex. Now, all you need to do is download the Change Set 18136, build the CropperSetup project and use the resulting msi file to install Cropper back again and there you go.....Bob's your uncle.

PS: Cropper rocks ...Thanks again Jeffrey  Cool

Windows Update fails after installing WinXP SP3

by Aboo Bolaky 9. September 2008 07:55

Yesterday, I took the courage to format my laptop and install a brand new Windows XP. After having spent hours in finding my notebook drivers, I decided to go ahead with it and trashed all my existing partitions and re-created new ones (I must have loved this because its been such a long time..:P ).

HOURS Later (yes..its an old laptop), I launched windows update. Win XP SP3 came up as a priority and therefore I installed it..After having rebooted the machine, I re-lauched WU to install the other updates(the most important update for me was IE7)..Once the download updates were complete, all the subsequent installations failed!!! Of course, there wasn't any log as to why the updates failed to install!!

It turns out that I did not reboot my machine after having installed the Windows Update Agent (RECALL: this is the first step prior to downloading updates from WU). Since SP3 was installed straight after the installation of WU Agent, some dlls were not properly registered and that caused updates to fail. KB943144 goes into a bit more detail and provides resolutions to this problem

Oh what a life...
