Editing a blog post with Microsoft Word 2010

Everybody talks about how to create a new blog post,but how to edit using Word just incase you want to use Word’s features?


Here’s the tip..

  • Open word 2010
  • Click on File-New->Blog post
  • You should see the blog post window appear
  • Click on the open Existing button under the Blog post tab.


Some of the offline blog editors available…

  • Microsoft Word
  • Windows Live Writer
  • Adobe Contribute CS5
What I’m trying right now is Live writer….This seems much better than Word 2010 especially where word requires a picture provider.
Live writer does not require a picture provider.
And out of all the three, my best experience is with Live Writer 2011! Smile

Never been easier to insert pictures…
Wish you blessings with your blogging experience…

Frustrated with Microsoft Forefront TMG (Threat Management Gateway)

FOREFRONT TMG Service keeps shutting down every 2 to 3 minutes and takes around a minute to start again...

The following are the traces found on the event log...

The Firewall service stopped because an application filter module C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway\wspsrv.exe generated an exception code C0000005 in address 000000013F4CBADC when function CompleteAsyncIO was called. To resolve this error, remove recently installed application filters and restart the service.

Faulting application name: wspsrv.exe, version: 7.0.9027.410, time stamp: 0x4cb45915
Faulting module name: wspsrv.exe, version: 7.0.9027.410, time stamp: 0x4cb45915
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00000000000dbadc
Faulting process id: 0x6f0
Faulting application start time: 0x01cb8e1579fe65f9
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway\wspsrv.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway\wspsrv.exe
Report Id: d7c45149-fa08-11df-967f-

The Microsoft Forefront TMG Firewall service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 25 time(s).

Schannel : The following fatal alert was received: 48.

Yeah,so I've not yet been able to figure out the actual cause although I've tried the following stuff..

  1. Disabled logging
  2. Disabled URL Filtering
  3. Installed SP1 for TMG
  4. Installed Update 2 which comes with a few hotfixes
  5. Checked the proxy chain...only the default chain is left
  6. Changed the web proxy port
Inspite of all this,no results yet....Still figuring it out...
Update: I think I’ve Found the solution…it was due to multiple services in the firewall using the SSL port. I disabled SSTP and it worked.
But,I’m not satisfied with it yet. I wish I could run multiple apps on port no 443…whoever invented ports should’ve thought better…. Smile

Adobe Contribute CS5


Just trying our Adobe Contribute CS5. Pretty cool really. It connects with my blog and lets me edit all the posts directly here.

What's the advantage? I don't have to go to the site and login everytime.I could rather do it directly from Adobe Contribute CS5

Any other benefits? Not much as I can see except that you can design better using this thing than doing it on the blogger site

TWO issues : Cannot find W3SVC on computer & Windows 2008 takes half an hour to boot

  • All you did was that you just set up active directory after Windows 2008 R2 installation
  • You simply tried to install IIS...but,it throws you errors when you open IIS after installing it or IIS doesn't even get installed
  • Your windows server takes half an hour (30 minutes) or more to reboot
Cause of this problem?

You would never guess! It's that Display Driver and Motherboard driver.Install those if you haven't installed them before setting up Active Directory in Windows 2008 R2.

The cause of this problem isn't active directory as you would's the drivers. This happened on a CORE I3 PC.

Solution: Install your Motherboard drivers before attempting to setup Active Directory

Sharepoint 2010 Installation : The language of this installation package is not supported by your system

Getting this error while installing Sharepoint?

Don't use winrar or 7zip to extract the files..

Use the command to extract and it works..
SharePointFoundation.exe /extract:c:\SP2010

Now,install it again and the issue is solved!
