When trying to view a list in datasheet view, sometimes you get the following error:
" The list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view for one or more of the following reasons: A datasheet component compatible with Windows SharePoint Services is not installed, your browser does not support ActiveX controls, or support for ActiveX controls is disabled. "
Well.. the first thing you should test is if activeX is in fact enabled in your browser.. second thing.. if you’re running the correct version of Office.. to use datasheet view you need access 2003 or 2007 installed on your machine. But, if you’re searching for this here you probably already checked those things.. so let’s go to the next level:
Open regedit and let’s edit windows registry.. first of all, please do a backup of your windows registry! you know that edit this is a dangerous thing, right?
Ok then.. so now that you’ve did your registry backup, delete (or rename) the following entry:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\
that’s all.. if even this doesn’t work for you, try to register again stslist.dll:
argh.. I always forget how to do this…
IIS 6 -
cscript C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/<SiteId>/SecureBindings ":443:<HostHeader>"
IIS 7 -
appcmd set site /site.name:<SiteName> /bindings.[protocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:'].bindingInformation:*:443:<HostHeader>
you can find “appcmd” in the c:\windows\system32\inetsrv folder
and why should I want to do this? This is for cases when you have a wildcard certificate (a SSL certificate valid for an entire domain: *.domain.com) and you want to set up several websites on the same server to use this certificate, all of them listening in the default port ( 443 ).
see ya folks =)
From Microsoft Learning - Born To Learn Blog:
Experts needed - create some snacks!
Hopefully you saw the annoucement yesterday about the launch of the beta version of the community learning snack site called SnackBox. It’s the new place for technology experts to create and share Silverlight learning snacks.
While we’re in this beta phase, we’d love to have people who are experienced with Microsoft technologies (MCP’s, MCT’s, etc) create your own snacks and upload them to the site. This will accomplish two things:
1. The snacks you create will be there when we do the larger public launch later this year, giving you and your expertise visibility.
2. We’ll be featuring the top authors on the site, giving you even more visibility.
So if you haven’t checked it out yet, just go tohttp://beta.snackbox.microsoft.com/ See what we have to offer, then use the feedback page to let us know what you think and if you’re interested in becoming one of our beta authors. We’re limiting this beta phase to only 20 authors, so let us know right away if you’re interested and which technologies you’d like to create snacks about.
Saiu do forno a nova versão do Silverlight..
Campanha bacana de marketing da nova versão da suíte do office, vale a pena dar uma olhada:
