I downloaded the documentation of the new Silverlight 2 Beta 1. When I tried to open it, after a successful download was this:

chm_problem_01

Ok.... not really what I expected to see. After some asking around I found it thanks to this post. Apparently you have to open Windows Explorer and open the Properties window and push the Unblock button:

chm_problem_02

And afterwards I was very happy to see this:

chm_problem_03

Happy reading for this guy and I hope for you the same.

Grz, Kris.

I like keyboard shortcuts a lot and use them wherever I can, especially while developing with Visual Studio 2005, so here are some handy shortcuts for Windows Vista:

Windows key + spacebar: Will show the Windows Vista Sidebar. I like this feature and the possibility to create your own gadgets as well. There's also some to be found on CodeProject as well.

Windows key + x: This'll launch the Windows Mobility Center. Very handy when you're using a laptop.

I just installed Windows Vista Enterprise edition. The graphics card of my laptop only got a score of 1.9 so I'm not into Aero. My hard drive however, a brand new 100 Gb 7200 rpm, got a score of 5.0. And indeed, installing Vista on it was much faster then I could imagine. I also just installed IIS and now will begin with Visual Studio 2005 Team System For Developers and SQL Server 2005 for developers to get as quickly as possible up to speed again.
