avast! antivirus 5: if you updated your engine/virus definitions to 110411-1, then please update them to ‎110411-2

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/04/11

The 1104011-1 engine/virus definitions of Avast contains a problem; it marks a lot of web-sites as and programs as false positives ago.

Right now, their web-sites and download servers are flooded with people frantically trying to update.

Be patient, but do update when you can. The past has shown the flood doesn’t really take that long.

From their Facebook page:

A few minutes ago: ‎110411-2 UPDATE IS OUT! PLEASE UPDATE YOUR DATABASE.

About 20 minutes ago: PROBLEM WILL BE FIXED WITH NEW DATABASE UPDATE SOON, PLEASE BE PATIENT. THANK YOU.

Oh BTW: If you use the FREE version of avast, then you will have a low priority and receive 403-errors while updating for some while:
Last encountered error: Other HTTP error (403)

Spellen is lastig: Het is weer mis met de Chicagostraat – Almere – WebRegio.nl

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/04/11

In Almere is voor de 2e keer een bord met een foute spelling voor Chicagostraat opgehangen (eerst Chigacostraat, nu Chigagostraat).

Gerrit de Jager (Doorzon Daily) wijdde er zelfs een cartoon aan.

Dit doet me denken aan mijn schooltijd; de woorden “Mississippistraat” en “San Franciscostraat” schoten me meteen te binnen: daar moet ik altijd 2 keer over nadenken voor ik ze goed spel.

Gelukkig komen die een stuk minder voor als “Kerkstraat” of “Dorpsstraat” (hoewel “Dorpstraat” ook bestaat).

Spellen blijft moeilijk, en niet alleen Nederlandse woorden :-)

SharePoint 2010 error: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BDEADF26-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} failed due to the following error: 800703fa – SharePointWiz

Somehow in a production environment I did get this error too:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040154): Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BDEADF26-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

These two posts helped me to solve it:

SharePoint 2010 beta error: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BDEADF26-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} failed due to the following error: 800703fa – SharePointWiz – Site Home – MSDN Blogs.

Rhythmic Coding: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BDEADF26-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

The solution is deceptively simple:

Resolution: It is because you are trying to build a x86 application. Go to project properties and set type to x64 everywhere. Then rebuild and debug. The Error Vanishes!

The SharePoint 2010 dll’s are all x64, and Visual Studio 2010 by default still starts .NET projects in x86 mode for both Release and Debug settings.
