I can confirm the observation, using IE 9 on Win 7. Checking in the IE settings (Tools → Internet settings → General → Fonts), I can see BatangChe mentioned as the font under “user defined” for normal text, and the font used for serif looks like Batang Che but has different spacing. And setting fonts there does not seem to change this. I guess they only ...

OS is winxp sp3. The Apache Friends download page for XAMPP states that Windows XP is no longer supported by the application. However, an alternative link is given for this OS. Windows XP or 2003 are not supported. You can download a compatible version of XAMPP for these platforms here. It seems that the latest version of XAMPP that is compatible with ...

Microsoft has now launched modern.ie, a website dedicated to testing web pages in Internet Explorer. It includes downloads of virtual machines for testing (although not currently for IE 6): http://www.modern.ie/en-us/virtualization-tools

One good and easy way to prevent execution of certain file extensions under an specific folder is to use the "Request filtering" feature of IIS to prevent accessing them altogether. Go to the folder in IIS and in the "File Name Extensions" tab of the "Request filtering" feature, add "Deny file extension" rules for the file extensions that you want to lock. ...

You should take a look at Windows Azure Web Sites. Web Sites offers a very straightforward way to deploy your apps to Azure without worrying about any virtual machine setup. It also has a free tier, which you can then upgrade when you feel you need more capacity, want to add SSL, or add a custom domain name. Web Sites offers ftp access, but also has full ...

This is a known issue with Raleway and some versions of Chrome, it's related to anti-aliasing of fonts. This is a fix for windows, using SVG in the css /*FIX FONT FOR GOOGLE CHROME ON WINDOWS*/ @media screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio:0) { @font-face { font-family: 'MyFont'; src: url('fonts/myfont.svg#myfont') format('svg'); font-weight:...

This depends on how your network is setup. If you have a central DNS server on your network (as many enterprise business networks have) then you can add a zone record for whatever domain you wish for it to show up as. If you don't currently have a central DNS server you could set one up to achieve what you are after just the same. If both of those options ...

Particularly on windows there are some nasty looking warnings about running installer exe's. These can be made much less scary by signing your code release. We make sql charting software, with our setup.exe you only get this one warning: Notice where it says publisher, this means the user gets less warnings and seems safer. I say seems as the only ...

You need one additional thing to connect: the address of the server. It can be either an IP address or a host name. After you have the address you can log into the machine through secure shell (SSH). SSH gives you command line access to the machine. You could also use secure copy (SCP) to place your files on the machine. From a Windows machine you ...

Assuming that you want the uploaded files to be served as static content (or else you could just save the uploads outside the root folder of your application): Inside your root web.config (which can't be overwritten by users), use this (as suggested by Javier G., but with allowOverride=false): <location path="upload" allowOverride="false"> <...

Simple answer. You are going to have nothing but trouble with a file name of setup.exe. In fact, any file with the .exe extension is going to ruin your day. The good news is, I am pretty sure your not a hacker! (humor) Use WinZip or some other compression file application and create a .zip file with your install in it. Have your users download the .zip file ...

The fonts on various websites should offer the same experience than any other operating systems, of course they are never pixel perfect since the rendering engines vary. But with this said it shouldn't be as bad as you say it is and I imagine that something else is causing font problems on your screen, one thing it could be comes to mind and that is early ...

You need to set maxAllowedContentLength, not maxRequestLength to up the allowed upload size for IIS. the former is the IIS request length limit, the latter is the ASP.NET request length limit. Also important to know is that maxAllowedContentLength is the length in bytes, whereas maxRequestLength is the length in kilobytes. See this question on SO for more ...

Ok, so we have confirmed that our calculations were incorrect. Our provider was giving us reports based on the number of "visits". A visit is calculated based on the amount of time a user spends on our website. However, IE7 users might be rare but they might spend more time on a website compared to a Chrome user. This meant that the percentage we were going ...

IIS supports header expires, simply add them to your web.config file. Examples: SOURCE <configuration> <system.webServer> <staticContent> <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseExpires" httpExpires="Tue, 19 Jan 2038 03:14:07 GMT" /> </staticContent> </system.webServer> </...

For want of a better solution, and to get this working, I've ended up creating multiple sets of the codebase onto 'fake' domains and pointing a number of the aliases toward each one. If anyone has a better approach I'd still be very interested to hear about it, and change the accepted answer.

One excellent tool for helping to diagnose this is curl along with a --write-out format and the -I and -L flags. If you use the -I option curl will provide the response headers for each completed request. The -L flag will make sure that curl follows redirects. The -w"@/path/to/format/file.txt" flag will allow you to specify a format file that ...

It is not possible to exclude Windows or target only macOS. You can select operating systems for Display and Video ads, but only mobile operating systems are offered. I had a 30 minute conversation with, and multiple configuration attempts by, a Google Ads optimization advisor person, and he couldn't do it either.

You didn't mention it anywhere, but you are using IE, along with NTLM SSO. IE only engages in automatic NTLM handshakes with sites that it deems to be in the Intranet Zone. Otherwise it will throw the popup prompt to explicitly ask for credentials. (Even in the Trusted Zone) So the question is, how does it know a site is in the intranet? Well, first, if you ...

If you split your content you could hurt your site rankings if you take away your ranked pages. If you take away non ranked pages, then it'll not impact your site. So check out which of your pages are ranking good, check which of them have external links, and keep them in your main site. Maintaining two sites will be more work, and they will immediately ...

We are a software developer and we had the same issue. Our products are packaged as installer EXEs and then hosted on our site. All our EXEs are digitally signed by our code-signing certificate issued by Thawte CA. Our website has been registered with GoogleWebmasterTools (GWT) since 2011. Initially we had our hosted our EXEs and they were being downloaded ...

Just to add to the posted solution for others who might be running into the same issue: None of those worked for me until I figured out that the handlers were locked at the top level. I'm not a server admin or even close to it, so that took me a little while. Until the applicationHost.config file was edited to allow overrides, including even an empty <...
