Zero-day Java exploit fixed: Either update Java immediately, or disable it if you don’t use/need it

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2012/08/31

On monday, I wrote it was Time to disable Java for a while: Zero-Day Season is Not Over Yet.

Today Oracle released a fix, which you should either install immediately (that is NOW, don’t hesitate!).

For this vulnerability, it is enough to disable Java from your browser – see: How to disable Java in your web browser – but as with any software: if you don’t need it, just disable/uninstall it.

Disabling/uninstalling on a Mac may impose a problem, as Apple hasn’t come with an update for the OS X editions that came with Java pre-installed.

Most other users can either install the version on their current system on-line from Download Free Java Software, or download offline installers for other systems at Java Downloads for All Operating Systems.

I might actually try the Java Unattended Silent Installer and Updater from Ninite – Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once.

If a program you wrote can’t start becuase MSVCR*.dll is missing, then you forgot to ship the Visual C++ runtime…

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2012/08/30

Too often I see quesions like the one below on software that people distribute:

The Program can’t start becuase MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I am getting follwing error when i am trying to open Computer management in windows 7,the error is as follows ,

The Program can’t start becuase MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Where can i found this dll file, and help me to download and install.

The reason is that many programmers and companies still fail to ship the correct Visual C++ run-time.

Even for a one-off, you should need to get your installation set right. And writing stuff in a version of Visual C++ almost always means you need to ship the run-time for that particular version of Visual C++ with your application (though sometimes you can get away by putting the DLLs in the directory of your application, this is not recommended, as that way you won’t receive security updates).

User Marilyn O was so kind to sum up most of the download locations (I did a bit of post-editing, added all the non-“FamilyID” links, all naming differences are from the MS site):

I would install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable dll that is needed for projects built with Visual Studio 2010.

Download the files below depending on your operating system version. [...] Check in Programs and Features, do you show that you have installed Microsoft Visual C++ … Redistributable? If not, download from the links here.

VS2010 Workfold Command: allows moving a local working folder for a WorkSpace, but not unmapping it when you have multiple workspaces with the same name

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2012/08/29

Just found a glitch in the unmap support for tf workfold (and found out it has already been reported).

First what I tried to do:

  1. move D:\develop.TFS02 into D:\develop\CodePlex\TFS02 using tf map (which BTW allows you to do in place branch switching).
  2. unmap D:\develop.TFS02\besharp from TFS

First a few things; the first one succeeded (as it implicitly uses the /map command), the last ones failed because /unmap is ambivalent on the /collection parameter: on the one hand it wants to do without, but when it discovers it cannot do without, it wrongly indicates it requires it.

D:\develop.TFS02\besharp>tf workfold /collection:https://tfs.codeplex.com/tfs/tfs02 /workspace:%COMPUTERNAME% $/ D:\develop\CodePlex\TFS02

D:\develop.TFS02\besharp>tf workfold /collection:https://tfs.codeplex.com/tfs/tfs02 /workspace:%COMPUTERNAME% /unmap $BeSharp
The option collection is not allowed.

D:\develop.TFS02\besharp>tf workfold /unmap /collection:https://tfs.codeplex.com/tfs/tfs02 /workspace:%COMPUTERNAME% D:\develop.TFS02\besharp
The option collection is not allowed.

D:\develop.TFS02\besharp>tf workfold /unmap D:\develop.TFS02\besharp
Unable to determine the workspace. You may be able to correct this by running 'tf workspaces /collection:TeamProjectCollectionUrl'.

D:\develop.TFS02\besharp>tf workfold /unmap /workspace:%COMPUTERNAME% D:\develop.TFS02\besharp
Multiple workspaces exist with the name T61PJWP.
Please specify the Team Foundation Server or qualify the name with the owner.

Workaround

The workaround is to

  1. start Visual Studio,
  2. unmap $/,
  3. recursively map $/ to D:\develop\CodePlex\TFS02,
  4. perform a get latest.

Many more event videos available at Channel 9 (was: PDC10 – view Microsoft PDC 2010 sessions on your PC)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2012/08/28

Dang; I thought this had long left the posting queue, but somehow it ended in the drafts (:

Since then, many more event videos made it to Channel 9, including Build 2011, and TechDays 2012.

Anyway, here it is:

Microsoft’s PDC 2010 was held at the end of October 2010 in Redmond, WA, USA.

For the people that could not attend, it is very nice to view the sessions using the PDC10 player (it seems still people didn’t learn and start stripping the century parts from years again!).

Even if you are not using Visual Studio, .NET Azure or other Microsoft Technologies, there are a lot of interesting sessions showing the directions that Microsoft is taking.
Comparing that to what you do today is always a good thing to do: it helps you reflect, an important part of your personal development.

A few things I found interesting (in no particular order):

  • Asynchrony support in C# 5 and VB.NET 11 based on the Task Parallel Library
  • The choice to favour HTML 5 over SilverLight, even though Internet Explorer 9 and Microsoft’s HTML 5 authoring/development tools are far from ready
  • Azure reporting: is reporting the next big thing on clouds?
  • Offline versus online in the cloud world
  • NuPack – does it bring package management to the same level as Ruby or *nix?
  • XNA for XBox, Windows and Windows Phone

Enjoy!
