Crossbow – the new & exciting new windows mobile 6.0

Posted in Uncategorized by Ratnakar Garikipati on March 1, 2007

the code word for windows mobile 6.0 according to some sources at Microsoft is “Crossbow”.

Unlike windows mobile 5.0 some suggest that the new windows mobile 6.0 is going to be much more stable and faster. There’s no doubt that this is a big relief to users like me. I have been using Windows 5.0 for almost a couple years and I have lost count of how many times it crashed in a very untimely manner.  

This new version of the mobile o/s has Vista looks, improvised calendar, email search capabilities, view and edit office attachments, windows live etc.  

I don’t want to brag about it but if you are interested, visit the below link to know more about it: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/6/default.mspx


Loader Lock when running .Net forms???

Posted in General I.T by Ratnakar Garikipati on February 19, 2007

when running .Net forms if you get the following error message, and if you are running iTunes 7.1 then ….

“LoaderLock was detected Message: Attempting managed execution inside OS Loader lock. Do not attempt to run managed code inside a DllMain or image initialization function since doing so can cause the application to hang.”

exit iTunes and kill it’s related processes using the Task Manger, the forms should work.
