There are multiple options to test web apps in IE6. Check this Smashing Mag review of free & commercial tools for cross-browser testing to find out which will fit your need best. Update [26/Feb/13]: IE VMs ...

The free IETester application allows you to test IE10 preview, IE9, IE8, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5 on Windows 7, Vista and XP, and requires no installation of separate virtual images. I've been using it for several years for IE tests without issue. I don't know of an 'official' alternative from Microsoft, but it's possible that they'll be dropping support for the ...

First of all -- this really depends on your server configuration -- if such modifications are allowed to be performed on directory level (section is not locked on parent/server level). In order to disable execution of specific file extension yo need to know the handler name that is responsible for this. On each system this name can be different, especially ...

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

Without knowing a bit more about your context it's a bit hard to provide a better solution, however rather than writing a custom web browser that allows users to browse your site, and download things why not do something along the lines of: In your windows application, call a service on your website that gives you the relevant details of downloads available....

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:...

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 ...

Processors with more cores use more advanced technology, that's why they're more expensive. If you add up the processing power, then in theory they're faster, but in practice it depends on you using software that works across multiple cores. More power won't mean much unless you're running computationally expensive operations. It's hard to judge if that's ...

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 ...

I realise this is an old post, but others with the same problem might find the solution useful. After spending ages with various fixes to session.inc.php I finally had a eureka moment and thought to check the PHP session save directory was correct and writeable. Setting NTFS permissions to Everyone on the folder has fixed it for me.. Doh.

The most famous hosting company heavily focused on Windows (as far as I know) is Godaddy. Their main site is also hosted in Windows (only 1% of websites are using Windows). They have all the requirements you listed.

Of course you can, why not? You only need to make sure that your current plan support 2 domains or not. Then, please ask your current provider to install it for you. Good luck. :)

I use this: Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine On #RewriteBase / # check if the file don't exists then redirect RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^(.*)\.html$ $1.php [NC,L] and it works fine, the $a should be $1. RewriteEngine On Enables the rewrite engine IF mod_rewrite is enabled. RewriteBase / Executes all the rules from the root (/) ...

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"> <...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

For an Azure website not running in a VPS, you just need to supply a .pfx file (this step of the tutorial). You can use the Utility running on any Windows machine (including your local workstation) to create the .pfx file as described in the tutorial.

The issue is, there is a missing AddHandler php5-script .php in the config file.

Your Mac is probably retina, which means it uses twice the amount of pixels to display things. Some articles with more information: http://blog.endpoint.com/2014/05/supporting-apple-retina-displays-on-web.html http://www.leemunroe.com/designing-for-high-resolution-retina-displays/ You can emulate retina displays on Windows in Firefox by changing the pixel ...

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.

If you're configuring vhosts in separated conf file, you've also to include that file (remove comment near the end of httpd.conf file), uncomment Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf
