ColdFusion Builder Error: "Unhandled event loop execution"

Environment: Eclipse 3.5, ColdFusion Builder Plugin, Aptana

Whenever I open a Coldfusion file, will see error "Unhandled event loop exception." followed by a dialog: "An error has occured. See error log for more details. CFMOutlinePage_0".


Turns out CF Builder is using Aptana which conflict with the lastest Aptana.

Disable Aptana:
  • Disable Aptana: Windows -> Preferences -> General -> Startup and Shutdown, uncheck all Aptana plugins;
  • Disable Aptana Update: Windows -> Preferences -> Install/Update -> Available Software Sites, disabled all Aptana sites;
  • Restart Eclipse using the "-clean" command line, and the problem seems to be fixed now.
Another riskier solution is to uninstall Aptana Studio from Eclipse.
  • Copy current Eclipse directory for backup;
  • Help > About Eclipse > Installation Details > Installed Software > Aptana Studio > Uninstall

Visaul Studio Strong Name Error - Importing key file "X.pfx" was canceled

Getting a new computer, so I installed fresh Visual Studio 2010, and checked out source code from SVN. Then I got the following errors:

Cannot import the following key file: X.pfx. The key file may be password protected. To correct this, try to import the certificate again or manually install the certificate to the Strong Name CSP with the following key container name: VS_KEY_F...

Importing key file "X.pfx" was canceled
Run this command line:

Flex Compiler Error - Could not resolve * to a component implementation

While extending MX control ComboBox, I am trying to alter it's property.

<mx:tree change="outerDocument.updateLabel()" height="200" allowmultipleselection="{outerDocument.allowMultipleSelection}" showroot="{outerDocument.showRoot}" showdatatips="true" datatipfield="{outerDocument.labelField}">

I got the compiler error as stated in the tile. Turns out I should refer to the property using my custom control's own name space. So the code should be like this:

<mx:tree change="outerDocument.updateLabel()" height="200" allowmultipleselection="{outerDocument.allowMultipleSelection}" showroot="{outerDocument.showRoot}" showdatatips="true" datatipfield="{outerDocument.labelField}">

SQL 2005 on Windows XP SP3 - MSXML6 Error

With a fresh Windows XP SP3, I cannot install SQL 2005. The error message in log file is:
Property(S): SupportedOSMessage = Installation of this product failed because it is not supported on this operating system. For information on supported configurations, see the product documentation.
Property(S): ShortCutText = MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686)
Property(S): DialogTitle = MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686) Setup
Property(S): ProductName = MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686)
Property(S): ShortName = MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686)
Property(S): WrongPackage = This MSXML6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686) package is not supported on the current processor type.
Property(S): DialogPatchTitle = MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686) Patch
Property(S): SystemFolder = C:\WINDOWS\system32\
MSI (s) (04:A8) [09:38:47:725]: Product: MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686) -- Configuration failed.

MSI (s) (04:A8) [09:38:47:725]: Windows Installer reconfigured the product. Product Name: MSXML 6 Service Pack 2 (KB973686). Product Version: 6.20.2003.0. Product Language: 1033. Reconfiguration success or error status: 1603.
Luckily, I am not the first one who saw this problem. This problem seems to be around for a while now. There is a nice Microsoft KB article for this exact problem, and the solution is to use "Windows Installer CleanUp utility" to remove existing MSXML then install SQL 2005.

MSDN Library is Gone in Visual Studio 2010

I consider this another major setback in Visual Studio 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 come with a help system that is the worst since Visual Studio 2002.

  • web-based, can be views in IE, as well as FireFox;
  • Encourage the use of better search engines like Google?
  • No auto-complete search box;
  • Search result is worse than Google;
  • Left pane only has three fixed positions, cannot be resized or hidder;
To compensate the lack of auto-complete, I have stopped using my local help system and starting to use Google as my MSDN document explorer which did an excellent job.
