Another week of setting up my new computer and when I attempted to use CyberLink Media Suite Essentials power2go I was given an error: "Error at loading if ippSP library - No DLLS were Found in the Waterfall procedure". Being a new machine I did not want to go any further until I figured out if I had something already wrong with my brand new system.
Well after accidently uninstalling, calling Dell (Which by the way provided excellent support) and resulted in having the media disk shipped to me, reinstalling only to find the exact same error I finally came across the solution after many hours of agony!
Here is what I did
Go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and move the following files out of the directory. I moved mine to my documents folder just in case the suggestion did not work.
- ippjw7-6 .. 1
After this I opened back up power2go and I no longer received the error message. So looks like yet another problem solved. Hopefully if someone else has a similar problem this post will show up in the search engines and provide a fast solution to someone else.
Today I needed to create a shortcut to a virtual machine I had setup on my new windows 8.1 pro machine and unfortunately in Hyper-V connection manager I could not find any way to create a shortcut to the particular machine, I could only create a shortcut to the connection manager.
Here is what I came up with that worked.
- Go to the desktop and right click, go to New, select shortcut
- Type the location of the item, %windir%\system32\vmconnect.exe servername virtualmachinename
- So for my situation the hyper-v virtual machine was hosted on my local machine and the virtual machine I wanted to connect to was called Accounting so I typed in %windir%\system32\vmconnect.exe localhost accounting as shown below
- Click Next
- Type a name for the shortcut, in my case the virtual machine was called Accounting so that was what I used.
- Click Finish and a new shortcut will appear on your desktop that when opened will take you directly to the virtual machine in question.
Microsoft hosted a 2 day online event called Connect() launching with keynote speaker Scott Guthrie who gave a talk on "Developers in the mobile-first, cloud-first era" in which he talks about the vision Microsoft has for developer platforms, tools and technologies that bring developers to the center of the mobile-first, cloud-first era.

Was cool to see shows on topic such as .NET 2015, Multi-Device development, IOS, Android and Windows development and more.
Definitely worth taking a bit of your time to see if you find a topic of interest.

Just started using visual studio 2013 a little and looks like Microsoft already has a preview ready for Visual Studio 2015. Glad to see so much progress but I have to admit it is getting difficult to keep up with all the progress ;-)
When I get some spare time I think I will fire up a virtual machine and install this. Looking forward to seeing what is new regarding building cross-platform applications as mentioned below from the above URL.
