Windows 10 – Search Not Working

Hey everyone,

I’ve just upgraded to windows 10, however the start menu search has been randomly breaking. It just seems to load indefinitely. Thankfully there’s an easy fix:

- Start task manager (ctrl + shift + esc)
- Click more details
- Under the processes heading look for Search (green icon under background processes)
- Click on Search and hit end task

The Search process should now restart and start working. If not you can restart it manually using file > run.

angular js calling services twice – Angular JS

Hey everyone,

I had a few of my AngularJS services being called twice. The issue turned out to be that I’d added a controller to both my route and my view:

app.config(function ($routeProvider) {
    $routeProvider
		.when('/', {
		    controller: 'ProjectsController', /* <---- here */
		    templateUrl: '/Home/Home'
		})
<div>
    <ul ng-controller="ProjectsController"><!-- <-- here -->
        <li ng-repeat="project in projects">
            <b>{{project.Name}}</b>
        </li>
    </ul>
</div>

Removing it from the controller resolved the issue. Check out the following StackOverflow post for more info: http://stackoverflow.com/a/15535724/522859

Error: $injector:modulerr Module Error – AngularJS

Hey everyone,

Just getting back into angularjs and I came across the following error:

Unknown provider: $routeProvider

It turns out I that while I had included the route provider file I had missed adding it to the app:

 
//Original
var app = angular.module('commandsApp', [']);
 
//Fixed
var app = angular.module('commandsApp', ['ngRoute']);

TF30063: You are not authorized to access asxproject – TFS Online/Visual Studio

Hey everyone,

I ran into the following issue while trying to install the HTML Agility Pack via Nuget today:

TF30063: You are not authorized to access asxproject…

This fixed it for me:
– Go to “Team Explorer”
– Up the very top click on the “Connect to Team Projects” button (power cable looking icon next to the home button)
– Right click on the project and then click connect

Once connected, everything seemed to start working for me again. Check out this stackoverflow post more info: http://stackoverflow.com/a/16700451/522859

Repeat a character x times with c#

Hey everyone,

Just a neat little trick I came across on Stackoverflow, repeating a character x times without using a loop:

string result = new String(‘x’, 5); //xxxxx
string result = new String(‘a’, 3); //aaa

oldIndex must be a valid index in the Children collection (Visual Studio)

Hey everyone,

Just posting this in case anyone else runs into it. After unshelving, the following error kept popping up when I tried to open files using the solution explorer:

oldIndex must be a valid index in the Children collection
Parameter name: oldIndex
Actual value was -1.

I’m still not sure what caused it, but restarting visual studio seems to have fixed it.

Unable to Start Apache – Xampp

Hey everyone,

I was mucking around with xampp this morning and ran into the following issue with apache:

3:41:52 PM [main] Initializing Control Panel
3:41:52 PM [main] Windows Version: Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
3:41:52 PM [main] XAMPP Version: 5.6.3

3:41:52 PM [main] You are not running with administrator rights! This will work for
3:41:52 PM [main] most application stuff but whenever you do something with services
3:41:52 PM [main] there will be a security dialogue or things will break! So think
3:41:52 PM [main] about running this application with administrator rights!

3:41:52 PM [Apache] Problem detected!
3:41:52 PM [Apache] Port 443 in use by “Unable to open process” with PID 7820!

3:41:52 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
3:41:52 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port

In order to fix this, you can just kill the process that is blocking the port. Unfortunately I had IIS on this and needed another solution. As always, stackoverflow had the answer:

– In the xampp control panel, click config (same line as apache) and open the httpd.conf file
– Search for listen 80 and change it to list 8080 (or an alternative free port)
– Save and close the file
– In the xampp control panel, click config (top right)
– Click service and port settings and change the main port (and ssl if necessary) to match your httpd.conf file
– Click save and restart apache (note you may also need to run as administrator)

Resources for Mocking WCF

Hey everyone,

Just a few links I came across for mocking WCF in case anyone else needs them.

This tutorial was great: http://weblogs.asp.net/cibrax/unit-tests-for-wcf

The only issue being that it was missing a few class definitions (IIncomingWebRequestContext and IOutgoingResponseContext). I got lucky and was able to find full code samples at the following links:

https://code.google.com/p/netfx/source/browse/trunk/Source/ServiceModel/Web/IIncomingWebRequestContext.cs?r=18

http://netfx.googlecode.com/svn-history/r28/trunk/Source/ServiceModel/Web/Wrappers.cs
