XAMPP refused to start up on win7.
Figured out SQLServer’s reporting service was stealthily using the port 80, disguised as a system process! Yuck! So, stopping this service fixes the port issue but whoa – no luck yet – XAMPP won’t want to come up!
Thanks to apache error logs, this time, the culprit turned out to be the path! XAMPP was installed under “\program files” while all the 32 bit apps are installed under “Program files (x86)” in Win7 64!
And all the httpd.conf and php.ini files were pointing to “\program files”.
So, just moved the XAMPP installation from “program files (x86)” to “program files” and voila – all’s well!
XAMPP now runs like a song!
It’s always nnnnnniiiiiiiiiiiiicccccccccccceeeeeeeeee to find solutions!

Not that this is rocket science, but what is to be noted is the validations thought and executed based on the content of the mail.
Well thought google!

As an exception i much prefer the simplicity of windows live writer for blogging from my desktop.
it is in fact so simple, that a few fundamental functions are hidden to the naked eye. Ex: try modifying or deleting an existing post and you’ll see the fun.
What should have ideally gone to the ribbon bar menu is hidden in the file menu, under the “Open Recent Post” menu item.
To Manage your past posts…
1. Select “File –> Open recent post” (Click on the item – just hovering on this item shows another submenu that we are not interested in!)
2. Follow steps 1,2 – select the blog, post & click “ok” for modification. For Deletion, you follow steps 1,2,3 & you’ll get a confirmation dialog before deletion.
1.Windows + R = The Run Dialog
2. Type in “Assembly”
3. This opens the GAC for viewing.
4. GAC is normally the “\Windows\assembly” folder. But, Explorer displays this folder slightly different from a normal folder. So, How does it work behind the scenes?

b, Explorer uses shfusion.dll behind hoods. This is explained here.
