SoftwareSamples #2 – Run an application with C#


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace RunNotepad
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("notepad.exe");
}
}
}

Here is what you should do if you want to open a file in Notepad:


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace RunNotepad
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("notepad.exe", "C:/path/filename.txt");
}
}
}

Replace C:\path\filename.txt with the path and name of the file. Also, you would usually do backward-slash in Windows instead of forward slash. However, if you use backward-slash the application will run up a bunch of errors.

You can change the application that is launched. If you had SeaSurf installed at C:\Users\yourusername\Desktop\SeaSurfForWindows.exe, for example, you could launch that.

 

GUIDE: Fix Rendering Problems in SeaSurf for Windows

SeaSurf for Windows doesn’t always render pages as well as it could. However, you can fix this problem easily.

You will need:

You will need to know where the SeaSurfForWindows.exe is stored (eg, C:\Users\yourusername\Desktop\SeaSurfForWindows.exe)

Open Cortana or press Windows Key + R and type regedit and press enter. Navigate to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION and add a new DWORD 32-bit value. Name the value the path of SeaSurfForWindows.exe, including the SeaSurfForWindows.exe at the end and change the Hexadecimal value to 11001 and restart any running instances of ECG SeaSurf.

 

ECG SeaSurf for Windows – Update Pack 2

Welcome to the World of ECG SeaSurf 2017 Update Pack 2! After the problem of not knowing what the URL of a page is, now you can see the URL in the address bar and copy it into an email or whatever you want. It also fixes a couple of those bugs you may of been facing. If SeaSurf hasn’t worked on your machine previously, try it now and if it works, all foreseeable future versions should work.

Could “ECG Tools for Android” be brought to Windows UWP

UWP is the Universal Windows Platform, commonly referred to as Universal Apps. These apps can run on Windows Phones and tablets and are usually built with these devices in mind. Some can only run on PC, some run on phones, some are mobile-only apps, some run on VR and some are intended for tablets. They are usually more limited than their desktop counterpart if they have one.

SeaSurf could have a possibility of coming to the Universal Windows Platform. But, in the meantime, I am learning how to use Visual Studio’s UWP app creator, and I stumbled upon a widget called WebView.

WebView is available for Android, iOS and Windows UWP. WebView may remind you of SeaSurf for Linux as well, as the webpage viewer has been ported over to Python 2.x.

Today, I managed to make an app that displays my blog. I am thinking: should I make apps for people that run with Windows.

In the meantime, just add the following below <Grid Background=”{ThemeResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}”> in your MainPage.xaml:

<WebView Name=”Display” VerticalAlignment=”Stretch”/>

Video Game Problems

Guys, I have decided to start making a basic half-3D half-2D game in Python. It was going well until I had to create the character’s graphics. He looks great, but I want to crop him so the image has nothing BUT him in it – no “cropped” background or anything, just him and nothing else. I don’t mind ads, really, I don’t. All I want is a solution so we have nothing but the character.

Here is how it looks at the moment:

Please comment with a solution!

Windows 10 without Anniversary Update Ends support soon – Microsoft advise you to upgrade

In Summer 2015, Microsoft released their first ever stable Windows 10 OS release to the world! In May 2017, support is ending for this build.

If you were one of those few people who managed to trick Windows 10 into not installing the Anniversary update, now is the time to upgrade. The Creators update will be coming in April 2017 as well, so you may want to upgrade to that as well. 

If you Use Windows 10 at work, contact your system administrator with advice, a link to this blog post, or something else to warn them if they are still using Windows 10 without the Anniversary Update.

If you don’t upgrade, your PC will continue to run but won’t be as secure. SeaSurf will still be supported on this version of Windows 10 for a while, though. 

Alexa adds support for Outlook Calendar

Previously, you needed a Google Account to use the calendar feature. Well, not any more! Amazon added support for Microsoft Outlook Calendar to its AI assistant.

You don’t even need to update your Alexa app to access support, though updating will solve any encountered problems. I couldn’t enable Outlook Calendar from my iPhone, so I enabled it from my hudl instead, which had an up to date Alexa app, whereas my iPhone didn’t.

Just go to Settings/Calendar and then add a Microsoft Calendar in your Alexa app or at alexa.amazon.com.

Then say “Alexa, what is on my calendar” (Doing it right now). Your Microsoft Calendar should be read out. Access your calendar at outlook.com.

Enjoy!

A new Internet Meme I created just now – OK buttons and errors!

If you want the Error application I made myself, get it from https://1drv.ms/u/s!Asov5XVfbr4hlQ2cMOBrz2bRY2en. If you get an error when trying to launch it, that is the point (If the error doesn’t look too normal to you anyway) 🙂 🙂

Here is an Internet Meme you may all share on your own blogs and on any other services you want to share on – it would be lovely if you gave me some credit for this meme – I did make it!

errorme

The point of this meme is to demonstrate that clicking “OK” when encountering an error means you are agreeing with it, but with some error messages that is the only option. This one doesn’t have a close button, only an OK, though it can be closed in the taskbar though, by right clicking and clicking close window.

The “unfortunately this app has stopped” error on Android, even if you tap in the background, still requires you to press OK, with the only other way powering your Android Device off and on again to get rid of the error.

That’s all I have to say at the moment, bye bye!
