Installation date: ‎12/‎21/‎2012 11:31 PM

Installation status: Failed

Error details: Code 80070643

Update type: Important

Help and Support:


Edited C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Scripts\ManageScheduledTask.ps1

and changed line 462 to write-output instead of return.

Exchange 2010 & Windows Server 2012 exchange management console crash.

Trying to gather data from the exchange console kept getting: error FX:{A5406CA3-6393-48a0-8827-CF06F0C94C55} Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

Everything showed "Unavailable".

Fix is here:

Open mmc, add the exchange management console snap in and save it as emc.msc

create a bat file 

set COMPLUS_Version=v2.0.50727

and the management console will work.

"Unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application."

Saw this trying to install software using ClickOne with a dependency on .NET framework full on windows XP.

"Unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application."

.NET framework 4 full was installed.

Solution was to download .NET framework 2.0

Let windows update install .NET framework 3.5 update.

Install .net Framework 4.

My steps for rooting a toshiba thrive hmj

Toshiba thrive version HMJ

I got all the information from threads.

1. Downgrade to HMJ37.01.5.0032

2.) Boot into recovery mode ( power off -> hold power + volume up)
3.) Select white package, select 'install update from external card'
4.) Reboot - thrive is downgraded
5.) Turn on usb debugging in settings -> applications -> development
6.) Download dalenet easy flash tool
7.) Download a rooted ROM
8.) Extract easy flash tool
9.) Plug in thrive, install adb drivers (they were part of easy flash tool zip) (takes a while)
10.) PS C:\Users\youri\Downloads\DaleNet-Thrive_10-Easy_Flash_Tool-v1.5\tools> .\adb.exe devices
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
280400643406517 device
11.) shutdown, boot into recovery mode
12.) select fast boot (usb icon)
13.) Device looks like hangs at 'starting usb download protocol'
14.) PS C:\Users\youri\Downloads\DaleNet-Thrive_10-Easy_Flash_Tool-v1.5\tools> .\fastboot.exe devices
?       fastboot
15.) Reboot it
16.)PS C:\Users\youri\Downloads\DaleNet-Thrive_10-Easy_Flash_Tool-v1.5\tools> .\fastboot.exe reboot

finished. total time: -0.000s

17.) Steps 9-16 confirm that the usb connection is good
18.) Reboot into fastboot again
19.) Run  thrive_easy_flash_tool.bat
20.) Select #1
21.) extract from rom image onto the sd card
22.) go to applications -> super user and update it
23.) root has been obtained
24. safe boot again
25.) thrive easy flash tool
26.) 3 - install  flash recovery
27.) Install clockwork
28.) thrive will hang at installing mrb image
29.) reboot into recovery, select the package icon
30.) should be in CWM mode, install zip from sdcard
31.) reboot from the cwm menu
32.) Should be on the right image now & rooted

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 defeat simple padding obfuscation

There is an applicationthat obfuscates a serial number by padding each character. Here is a de-obfuscator I made.

First: define the array with all the characters the algorithm uses:

    Public charArray() As Char = {"0", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", _
                           "A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H", "I", "J", _
                           "K", "L", "M", "N", "O", "P", "Q", "R", "S", "T", "U", _
                           "V", "W", "X", "Y", "Z"}

Function that will deobfuscate it.

    Private Function OffsetAChar(ByVal chartooffset As Char, ByVal offset As Integer)
        Dim posInArray As Integer = Array.IndexOf(charArray, chartooffset)
        Dim ArrayLength As Integer = charArray.Length

        If posInArray + offset = ArrayLength Then
            Return "0"
        End If

        If (posInArray + offset) <= ArrayLength And (posInArray + offset) > 0 Then
            Return charArray(posInArray + offset)
        End If

        If posInArray + offset = 0 Then
            Return 0
        End If

        If (posInArray + offset) < 0 Then
            Return charArray(ArrayLength + posInArray + offset)
        End If

        If (posInArray + offset) > ArrayLength Then
            Return charArray(Math.Abs(ArrayLength - (posInArray + offset)))
        End If

    End Function

Usage is simple:

        Dim charArray2() As Char

        Dim ArraySTring As String = txtDecode.Text
        ArraySTring = ArraySTring.Replace("-", "")
        charArray2 = ArraySTring

       txtCodeDecoded.Text += OffsetAChar(charArray2(0), -19).ToString.ToUpper

Figuring out the offset of two letters

    Public Function OffsetFinder(ByVal letter1 As Char, ByVal letter2 As Char)

        Dim CharPos1 = Array.IndexOf(charArray, letter1)
        Dim CharPos2 = Array.IndexOf(charArray, letter2)
        Return CharPos2 - CharPos1

    End Function 2010 run an app, activate it, and send keys.

This isn't an elegant way to do it, but it works for me. It runs a program, sends alt+h, a, tab, then ctrl+c to copy text to a clipboard and puts the contents of the clipboard into a textbox.

In sendkeys:
 % = alt
vbTab = tab
^ = crl
{escape} = ESC

Imports System.Diagnostics.Process
Imports System.Threading

Public Class Form1

Public Sub GetSerials()
Dim pInfo As ProcessStartInfo = New ProcessStartInfo("C:\Program Files (x86)\CustomApp\Bin\customapp.exe")

      pInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Maximized

AppActivate("CustomApp 1.1.5")

        TextBox2.Text = (TextBox1.Text & " : " & Clipboard.GetText & vbCr)


    End Sub

End Class

Monday, January 23, 2012 and oracle package that returns boolean

Public Function VALIDATE_NUMBER(ByVal num As String)
'connection string
 oraconnstring = "Data Source=" & OracleDataSource & ";User ID=" & OracleUserID & ";Password=" & OraclePassword & ";"

        oraclecmd = oraConnection.CreateCommand
        oraclecmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
        oraclecmd.CommandText = "CUSTOM_PACKAGE.GET_NUM"

        'create parameters that will be passed with command
        Dim dbNum As OracleParameter
        Dim dbPartNum As OracleParameter
        Dim dbCode As OracleParameter
        'serialnumber is sent to package
        dbNum = oraclecmd.Parameters.Add("I_STR_NUMBER", OracleDbType.Varchar2)
        dbNum.Value = serialnum
        dbNum.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
        dbNum.Size = 25
        'value is modified by oracle package
        dbPartNum = oraclecmd.Parameters.Add("O_STR_PART_NUMBER", OracleDbType.Varchar2)
        dbPartNum.Value = DBNull.Value
        dbPartNum.Direction = ParameterDirection.InputOutput
        dbPartNum.Size = 25
        'value is modified by oracle package
        dbCode = oraclecmd.Parameters.Add("O_STR_HEAT_CODE", OracleDbType.Varchar2)
        dbCode.Value = DBNull.Value
        dbCode.Value = "default"
        dbCode.Direction = ParameterDirection.InputOutput

'populate class
       numinfo.PartNumber = dbForgingPartNum.Value.ToString
       numinfo.Code = dbHeatCode.Value.ToString
        Return numinfo
end function
if the package returns a boolean value, which adapter can't handle, then a solution is to create a wrapper around that package.
  oraclecmd = oraConnection.CreateCommand
        'initiate return value
        Dim ReturnValue As OracleParameter = oraclecmd.Parameters.Add(":ReturnValue", OracleDbType.Varchar2)
        ReturnValue.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
        ReturnValue.Size = 1
        'Wrapper for the stored function (anonymous block)
        'boolean datatype is not available outside of pl/sql
        oraclecmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
        oraclecmd.CommandText = "declare tmp boolean; ReturnValue varchar2(1) ;begin tmp := FS.GETSN('" & value & "');if tmp = true then :ReturnValue := 'T'; else ReturnValue := 'F'; end if; end;"
        'execute the anonymous block
        'convert returnvalue into a string
        Dim a As String = oraclecmd.Parameters(":ReturnValue").Value.ToString
A will be T or F.
