Solution : projects\connectfour\build.xml:46: Unable to find a javac compiler; com.sun.tools.javac.Main is not on the classpath. Perhaps JAVA_HOME

make sure you are bale to execute the javac from command line.
[basically you need to have the "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16\bin" included in you path]

or following user variable

JAVA_HOME = C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16

copy the tools.jar from C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16\lib folder to cruisecontrol\apache-ant-1.7.0\lib

This should do the Job

word to wiki convertor macro

Using the Macro :

It is translated to TiddlyWiki from Word2Wiki by RobertCastley: as posted onto WikiMedia's Meta-wiki page. go to http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Word_macros#Word2TWiki for the original and the instructions there.

To use it, you must first load it as a word macro:
    * copy the vba script below into a text editor and then save it as
Word2TiddlyWiki.bas
    * Open your word document and then hit Alt+F11.
    * Then select File -> Import File.
    * Select the file you have just saved.
    * Close the Visual Basic screen.
to run the macro:
    * Block the text you want to convert
    * Then in your Word document select Alt+F8.
    * The converter will do its job and should automatically copy the
conversion into the clipboard.
    * All you then need to do is to paste into your editor in
TiddlyWiki.

how to compare or diff the word files

Diff doc is the tool that can be used.

http://www.softinterface.com/MD/Document-Comparison-Software.htm

I found it only effective for small size word files, this tool is much better then Winmerge for word documents.

how to create hp recovery cd \ DVD \ Restore Disks

Steps:


  1. Click Start>All Programs>Recovery Manager.

  2. Select Recovery Manager. This will open Recovery Manager.

  3. Click Advanced Options. If you are using a laptop and operating on battery power alone you must connect to an AC power outlet before you can go to the next step.
  4. Select Recovery disc creation. Click Next. The Recovery Manager will begin creating the necessary files. This may take a while, so be patient until the bar has reached 100%.
  5. Read the table of requirements that appears. Depending on the type of discs you use, more or less may be needed; if you use ordinary CDs, Recovery Manager will require more compared to fewer discs if DVDs are used.

  6. Insert your first blank disc, having made sure it is fully labeled, such as "Recovery Disc 01" or "Recovery Disc 1 of 2". The optical drive of your computer will have automatically opened. If not, open manually. Close the optical drive and click Next.
  7. Understand and confirm you want to go through with the operation using the type of disc you have inserted by clicking Next.

  8. Wait while Recovery Manager now creates the first disc. This may take 20-40 minutes as it collects the files, writes the files and verifies the files to disc.
  9. Remove the disc and insert the next after the first has been finished after clicking Next. Continue the creation of discs according to the necessary requirements, up until the last has finished creating files.

  10. Click Next after removing the disc and then Finish to complete the session. Congratulations! You have just made yourself a set of recovery discs.
  11.                                                                                                 
    Use the recovery discs to recover your computer in case of system instability or failure.


Tips

  • The number of discs you will need, whether CDs or DVDs, is highly variable across all computers. Do not take the table of requirements for granted.
  • Remember, if using a laptop you must be connected to an AC power outlet to create recovery discs.
  • Be sure to label all discs in numerical order as they are created. If the time comes when your computer has crashed, and you don't know the order in which your recovery discs are to be inserted, your system may be in very big trouble.
  • You will need high-quality CD-R, DVD-R, DVD-R with double-layer support, DVD+R, or DVD+R with dual-layer support discs (all discs purchased separately with computer).
  • Re-Writable discs (RW) are not compatible with the Recovery Manager software.
  • Permission may have be sought from the computer administrator (unless you are one) in order to start creating recovery discs.
  • These instructions are based on a Compaq Computer with Windows Vista, and are not intended for previous versions of Windows such as XP.
  • Sony's recovery disc creator is in a bit more unusual spot. Look in the Help & Support menu to find the recovery disc creator.
  • Acer has a program called Acer eRecovery. This will do the same thing.
  • In Acer, there is an option to restore to factory default without making a restore disk. At startup, push one of the following: [F10, CtrlF10, CtrlF10 while tapping]. One of these will start the Acer eRecovery screen which allows you to restore your system.

Warnings

  • Only one set of recovery discs can be made per computer, so do not lose them. Handle the discs carefully and keep them in a safe place.
  • However, the set you make can be copied. Keeping the originals in a safe location, while keeping copies with the laptop while traveling could be very useful to restore the system if major problems happen away from home. Students who study far from home could particularly benefit from the idea that restore disks might be necessary to use their computer after a virus wipes it out.

Things You'll Need

  • A computer
  • OS (operating system) of Windows Vista
  • High-quality discs
  • A Compaq or HP computer with Recovery Manager
  • A CD or DVD burner

Allow not compatible extensions in Firefox

The last version of firefox is out, but an extension that I use daily (QuickProxy) has not been updated yet. In fact, it should work but it is considered ‘not compatible’ by firefox and thus, is automatically de-activated.

The workaround (at your own risks !) is to bypass the security that enforces the compatibilty of extensions.

  • Open firefox and enter  “about:config” in the URL bar.
  • Right click in the page, then “new->boolean”
  • enter “extensions.checkUpdateSecurity” as the preference name in the dialog
  • set it’s value to false.
  • Create a similar entry called “extensions.checkCompatibility” set to false too.

Be careful when testing unsupported extensions, you may want to activate them one by one ! However do not hesitate to try, I have been able to succesfully use QuickProxy this way for more than a month….

For the record, the list of all the about:config options of firefox.

Solution : Eclipse Galileo 3.5 + Proxy settings

I installed eclipse 3.5 at my work place (where we access internet through an authenticated NTML proxy).  I was unable to make eclipse pass through this proxy, which prevented me to install updates and additional software.

Anthony Dahanne’s describes the workaround on his blog (in french). The Apache httpclient implementation should be disabled because it doesn’t work well with NTMLv2 proxies.

For NTLMv2 Proxies, that require user name and password for access the workaround is to

  1. Disable the ECF httpclient provider.
  2. Provide the NTLMv2 proxy authentication info (proxyhost, domain, username, and password)

In practice, edit your eclipse.ini file to append the following properties.

-Dorg.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.excludeContributors=org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient
-Dhttp.proxyPort=8080
-Dhttp.proxyHost=myproxy
-Dhttp.proxyUser=mydomain\myusername
-Dhttp.proxyPassword=mypassword
-Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=localhost|127.0.0.1

Solution : Error: Could not extract bounding box from .eps!

remove the latex file generation from doxygen. or else include the following packages
texlive texlive-pdf texlive-latex-extra
or install  (if on windows)

It is possible to use latex to produce formulas.  There are already some examples of this in the CalRecon code.  When using doxygen to produce documentation where latex commands are included, latex must be available on the system.  This is typically the norm on UNIX machines, however, on Windows this is a different matter.  There is a freely available version of latex available for Windows, MiKTeX:
http://www.miktex.org/
The Doxygen manual states the following:

Make sure the tools are available from a dos box, by adding the directory they are in to the search path.  For your information, the LaTeX is freely available set of so called macros and styles on the top of the famous TeX program (by famous Donald Knuth) and the accompanied utilities (all available for free). It is used for high quality typesetting. The result – in the form of so called DVI (DeVice Independent) file – can be printed or displayed on various devices preserving exactly the same look up to the capability of the device. The dvips allows you to convert the dvi to the high quality PostScript (i.e. PostScript that can be processed by utilities like psnup, psbook, psselect, and others). The derived version of TeX (the pdfTeX) can be used to produce PDF output instead of DVI, or the PDF can be produced from PostScript using the utility ps2pdf.

If you want to use MikTeX then you need to download the fancyhdr package separately. You can find it at:
ftp://ftp.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/fancyhdr/


- Mihir Patel

Solution : Problems running dot: exit code=-1, command='dot' + Doxygen

As I used Doxygen to generate source code docuemt, I failed to generate graphs and got this kind of error message: Problems running dot: exit code=-1, command='dot', arguments='"classcom_1_1htc_1_1hr_1_1tree_1_1_department_table_bean_50f82c9386b01669779a1524b380b355_cgraph.dot" -Tpng -o "classcom_1_1htc_1_1hr_1_1tree_1_1_department_table_bean_50f82c9386b01669779a1524b380b355_cgraph.png"'



Solution to this issue is to restart the eclipse after installing the "graphviz-x.msi".

Basically the path linking is the poblem.

To test that the installtion of the package is successful run the
dot --v
command at the command prompt. if you see nay text that means the installation is successful. To let the eclipse the path up for running the dot you need to restart the eclipse for the first time after installation.

Shrink Vista Partition for WinXp Installation

Options:
A) If you have an available partition for WinXp installation, go to "WinXp Installation".


Materials needed:
1) PerfectDisk 2008(30 days trial version, download here).


Steps:
*make sure you backup the drive you going to shrink just in case anything goes wrong.
1) In Windows Vista, go to "Start", right click on "Computer" and choose "Manage". You will be prompted, just click "Continue".


2) Click on "Disk Management" and you will see the information of your hardisk installed.


3) Right click on the "VistatOS" drive, in my case it's "(C:)" and choose "Shrink Volume...".

4) By default Vista will give you the largest amount of space that you are able to shrink, it's not the free space that you have on that drive. Why?(If you want to find out, please refer to Query 1 or you are satisfied with the amount of space that you can shrink, just proceed to Step 5).


*Steps below followed after I use "PerfectDisk 2008" to empty more usable space for my XP drive. Need help on it? Go here: Get more usable space out of free space using PerfectDisk 2008
5) Please input the amount of space(in MB) for the new drive and allocate wisely, as you need to take into consideration of programs that you will install on this new drive, data storage and so on. I input "1000"(in MB) then only you click "Shrink".


6) Wait for new partition to be created. Then right click on it to choose "New Simple Volume...".


7) Click "Next".


8) Click "Next".


9) Now assign the drive letter(for my case, it's F).


10) Input the "Volume label" as "WinXp" for easy identification later and check "Perform quick format" as well.



11) Choose "Finish" and you have a new partition ready for WinXp installation. Proceed to normal WinXp installation procedure.



Proceed to?
A) If you have an empty partition for WinXp installation, proceed to "WinXp Installation".

Extracting SATA driver from their EXE without Floppy Disk(FD) drive.

Options:
Obiously, you don't have any option to use Floppy Disk.


Materials needed:

1) SATA drivers(from your respective chipset manufacturer website, for me it's intel http://downloadcenter.intel.com)
2) WinImage(30 days trial copy from http://www.winimage.com)


Steps:
1) Download the intel SATA drivers. Make sure you get the correct file by downloading something called "Floppy Configuration Utility".


2) Extract the file and you will get green icon "f6flpy32".


3) Extract the "f6flpy32" again and you will get this a file with .IMA extension.


4) Ok, now you need to open up WinImage and browse to the latest extracted folder "f6flpy32" to load the .IMA file.


5) TATA, you will see all the SATA driver files needed for slipstreaming WinXp using nLite. Before you can use them, extract them to any folder(I name it "SATA driver" on my desktop) by selecting all of the files and choose "Extract".


6) You will be prompted, choose "Extract all files into the same folder".


7) If you open up the "SATA driver" folder, the content is exactly the same with the content Floppy Disk. The difference is that you don't need a FD.
