In case of having troubled with Sony Ericsson MW600 Bluetooth Headset

leave a comment »

Reference: Sony ericsson MW600 bluetooth driver for Windows 7 ?

I bought a bluetooth headset from eBay a week ago for my iPhone. It was perfectly fit to my phone but not for my laptop running Windows 7 Professional (x64).

According to the post linked above, Windows 7 doesn’t provide a proper driver for this product and Sony doesn’t either. Even worse, both parties wouldn’t consider this product. What a shame! However, a good news is that the bluetooth driver for Lenovo laptops are also suitable for other vendors’ laptops to figure this issue.

Solution? So simple. Go to the post above or directly download the bluetooth driver from here (http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/7zbv14ww.exe), install it and reboot your Windows 7. After your Windows 7 being rebooted, find or update your bluetooth driver to Broadcom. That’s it.

Bypassing 404 Error Page on IIS

with one comment


If you are using a web hosting company to run your own web site, sometimes you are experiencing unwanted 404 error page that is provided by the hosting company, which is hardly customisable, especially in IIS environment.

However, web.config of IIS is possible for site owners to bypass the 404 error page and show their own 404 page or a solution-generated 404 page like what WordPress does. It’s super simple. Open web.config of your root directory and add the following line within <system.webServer>...</system.webServer>:

<httpErrors existingResponse="PassThrough"/>

That’s it!

Setting up Wildcard Mapping on IIS 7 with a Classic Mode


After installing Windows 7 on my machine, I realised that Windows 7 has IIS 7 for web development. At the very first time, I thought IIS 7 wouldn’t be much different from IIS 5.1 or 6. Well, if I used Windows Vista at least once, I would never think like that.

The interface of IIS 7 has been totally changed, so I got in troubled with finding suitable configuration settings, especially “wildcard mapping”. The “Integrated Mode” of IIS 7 is not such worrying, but, for legacy ASP.NET 2.0 applications, “Classic Mode” of IIS 7 should be considered.

For IIS 5.1 or 6, the wildcard mapping is done in IIS configurations. However, for IIS 7, there is no wildcard mapping configuration for “Classic Mode”. Instead, just adding a handler into web.config file enables the web application to use wildcard mapping.

NetGear WG311V3 Wireless Adapter with Windows 7


First of all, it is very disappointing that NetGear wouldn’t support 802.11g or below products they have manufactured. Officially and currently, NetGear has announced only 802.11n related products including wireless LAN adapters are supported. The funniest thing is that NetGear is still selling 802.11g products! How disgusting they are!

I admit 802.11n is rapidly emerging out to the world. It is very new and state-of-the-art technology. However, there are still 802.11g adapters as majorities. It is the manufacturer’s obligation that they have to support their products until the products are old-fashioned.

Anyway, NetGear does not want to support my 802.11g wireless adapter, WG311V3, other users using the same product as me have found the way to install this device into Windows 7.

Even though the driver is not certified from Microsoft, it is all good and perfectly working.

Well, I just bought my desktop pre-assembled last year. If I knew that there was the NetGear device inside, I would give up buying the desktop. One day I buy a new networking device, I will never purchase anyone from NetGear and recommend my acquaintances to have NetGear’s product line.

Running Multiple Websites in IIS 5.1

Reference: Windows XP IIS Manager v1.7

There are still thousands of web developers running WindowsXP on their machine. It is true that WindowsXP, even though it is pretty much old operating system, provides robust developing environment to developers.

In order to debug and test their website built, the built-in IIS 5.1 should be used. Unlike Windows server products, however, it only serves one web site. In other words, running multiple web sites at the same time on IIS 5.1 is not possible. Of course we can run different web site by opening IIS manager, changing its property and running it, which is cumbersome.

The tool introduced in the link above reduces this bothering process to only one mouse click. It is very easy and intuitive to use.

Easy IIS 1.7

This is unnecessary for installation, so just download it and use it.

WindowsXP 자체가 오래된 운영체제이다보니 이 툴 역시도 오래된 것이긴 하다만 잘만 작동하면 장땡. 그냥 다운로드 받아서 실행시키면 끝. 원하는 만큼 웹사이트를 추가시킬 수 있음.

IIS 5.1의 특성상 한번에 한 웹사이트만 돌릴 수 있으니 동시에 여러 개의 웹사이트를 돌리고 싶다면 서버 운영체제를 설치해야 함.

Installing cURL Module for PHP on IIS

Reference: cURL Installation

When developers install PHP module onto IIS, cURL isn’t installed automatically, even though it is in the package.

There are two key files to use cURL.

  • ssleay32.dll
  • libeay32.dll

Installing cURL onto my IIS is:

  1. Copy both files stated above from C:\PHP5 and paste them to C:\Windows\System32.
  2. Uncomment extension=php_curl.dll in php.ini.
  3. Restart IIS.

That’s it! Enjoy your cURL life~

cURL 모듈이 PHP 패키지에 들어있음에도 불구하고 자동으로 IIS에 올라가지는 않는다. IIS에 올리려면 위와 같은 순서를 따라 하면 됨.

Microsoft! You've Got Broken VS2008 SP1 Download Links

Well, MS Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 was released on 08/11/2008, which was seven months ago. I was surprised that my VS2008 hasn’t been updated to the SP1. It should be updated automatically because I have the "real" product key served from MS itself.

VS2008 SP1 Download

VS2008 SP1 broken

VS2008 SP1 Download

VS2008 SP1 Download Failure

However, it still remains as non-SP1 version. So, I had to visit the web site to manually update my VS2008.

Wow~ it’s amazing! Both installer version (.exe format) and ISO image version cannot be downloaded from the web site because they don’t exist any longer (404 error).

How come does it happen? I don’t believe it. Hey, Microsoft!! Please restore the downloadable links!!

Synchronising Outlook with Google Calendar


Microsoft Outlook is one of the most famous softwares used for schedule management, contact management, and to-do management. I’ve been using this since 2000 when I started working for a company as a graduate position. It gives me great convenience because it synchronises both my desktop PC and PDA with each other, so I don’t need to memorise all my schedules nor write down on my planner.

Well, now Google provides the same service as MS Outlook, which is called Google Calendar. It is more convenient than Outlook because Outlook cannot be updated while I’m away from my PC. Instead, Calendar can be accessed as long as I can connect to the Internet. So, I migrated all my contacts and schedules to Calendar. By doing so, I can easily update my schedule through my mobile phone, which runs Nokia’s Symbian OS.

However, I still want to synchronise my Outlook with Calendar. Google Calendar Sync is the one I’ve searched for a long time.


After downloading this application from HERE and installing it, it can automatically synchronises both Outlook and Calendar with each other.

It would be great for business people who use MS Exchange and Outlook in their organisation because they don’t need to update their schedule by turning on their PC or accessing to their Exchange server. Rather, just accessing to Google Calendar might be enough.

Of course, there are heaps of applications that enable to directly manage Calendar. This application is using Calendar in just a different way and I prefer this way because it is a sort of back-up my schedules.
