After updating to the latest Windows 10 version my XBOX 360 wireless receiver was not recognized anymore and shown as “unknown device” in the device manager.
To fix this you´ll need to modify the “xusb21.inf” file that comes with the driver package as explained in this video:
You might have some trouble with enabling the testsigning for the now modified driver, especially if you are runnig Windows 10 Home. To fix this reboot your PC with this command "shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00".
Your pc will then boot into the advanced Windows options and there you can deactivate the driver signing for the next restart. Then you can install the unsigned driver, reboot the machine and enjoy your wireless controller working again.
Download Irfanview and extract it to a folder of your choice (e.g. Desktop/Downloads/Irfanview) – https://www.irfanview.com/64bit.htm – Be sure to download the ZIP version and NOT the installer.
Optional – download Irfanview plugins and extract it into the plugins subfolder of the folder where you’ve extracted Irfanview (e.g. Desktop/Downloads/Irfanview/plugins) – https://www.irfanview.com/64bit.htm – Again be sure to download the ZIP version.
Start Irfanview by double-clicking the irfanview.exe file in the Irfanview folder. Wine will then do its initial setup and needs to download Mono add-ons (required for .NET applications like Irfanview).
After that Irfanview launches and you’re good to go.
Lately I had a bit of an design issue with a web front end based on classical php/html/css. I wanted to display images in different sizes on different pages. But I wasn´t able to touch the php / html source so my only chance was to work on the css. But – I also wasn´t able to touch the css (pseudo) classes or introduce new ones.
After quite some time of research I discovered, that CSS offers a great way to nest statements so here is what I´ve done.
The original CSS class looked like this:
And here is how I nested my image size statement in it:
Recently I was looking for a small and portable FTP server that needs no installation and can be configured within a minute to perform some file transfers. To my own surprise there weren´t many options on the market and so I ended up using Smallftpd 1.0.3. It seems to be really old though the Sourceforge page speaks of an update in 2013.
Anyway – it did exactly what I wanted, needed no installation, supported passive mode and even a link to a dynamic DNS service.
The Digidesign 002 Rack / Console is still a very common audio interface, mainly because of its high quality. The driver installation in Windows 7 though can be a bit tricky. At first you need the correct driver from here http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/download/Digi-002-003-Drivers. Be sure to download the correct driver for your interface. As of now it looks like this:
9.0.8. – latest version for 002 Console
9.0.6. – latest version for 002 Rack
After downloading the driver simply install click the exe file and install them. In most cases the Windows Device Manager will still show you the Digidesign 002 & 003 device with no driver installed. Then you have to do the following;
– open the device manager
– right click the digidesign device
– choose update driver
– search the computer for a driver
– choose for a list of drivers on this computer
– all devices => next
– have disk amd point to this directory C:\Programms\Avid\003 (Console)\Streaming
– select the “Avid00Console.inf” file, select Digidesign 002, ignore all the Windows warnings
– check the device manager again => the device should now be listed at audio,video & gamecontrollers
