According to MSDN : On Windows 7 and on Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed, the operating system installs a virtual device if a Hosted Network capable wireless adapter is present on the machine. This virtual device normally shows up in the "Network Connections Folder" as "Wireless Network Connection 2" with a Device Name of "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adapter" if the computer has a single wireless network adapter. This virtual device is used exclusively for performing software access point (SoftAP) connections. The lifetime of this virtual device is tied to the physical wireless adapter. If the physical wireless adapter is disabled, this virtual device will be removed as well. On Windows 7, there's no UI to start or stop SoftAP....

Google's Chrome browser ignores proxy setting for FTP. When you enter an FTP url in the browser, it goes to the FTP server directly without going through the proxy, even when the proxy is manually configured. I tested this for for versions 20.0.1132.47 and 20.0.1132.57 on Ubuntu and Windows 7. Chromium bug report for the issue: Issue 11227 : FTP not wrking behind (HTTP) Proxy

I learned this the hard way. Apache is set up and running fine. I can open the "It works!" page in a local browser. I added the rules to the Windows Firewall to allow incoming connection from both Private and Public networks. But when I tried to access the default Apache page from another PC, timeout! I removed the rules, added them back again, double checked, still timeout! I then removed the firewall rules and used Windows 7 troubleshooting tool to fix the problem. It correctly identified and "fixed" the problem. But I still get timeout! Finally I got tired of all this and hit the Power button. It worked! Everything worked out after reboot! Lesson learned: Windows 7 is still Windows.

Steps to configure SSL for Apache HTTPD server on Windows: In Apache2.2/conf/httpd.conf , load mod_ssl and include httpd-ssl.conf :
LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so ...In Apache2.2/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf , make sure the paths for the cert files point to the cert and key you want to use:
# Server Certificate: # Point SSLCertificat...Start up Apache. If it fails, use the command line to see what the error is. There won't be any log in error.log if there are errors in the conf files:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\...I corrected the previous error by using the alternative line for SSLSessionCache :
# Inter-Process Session Cache: # Configure ...

When a certificate is "untrusted" by IE (such as a self-signed certificate), it displays a "Certificate error" icon next to the address bar. It used to be that you can click on that icon, "View certificates", then install it. On Windows 7, because of UAC , the "Install Certificate..." button is no longer displayed. In order to see the button, you have to start IE9 with administrator privileges: right click on the IE9 shortcut icon and select " Run as administrator... ". To save the certificate to a file, click the Details tab on the Certificate dialog, then click " Copy to File... ".

Microsoft provides free downloadable Windows images to support IE browser compatibility testing, just google Internet Explorer Application Compatibility VPC Image . These VMs run on Microsoft's Windows Virtual PC . According to MS: You can technically have a base image which never expires although you will never be able to permanently save any changes on these images for longer than 90 days.

IE9 has pretty good developer tools support - similar to that of Firebug, though not as good (under the Tools icon pick F12 Developer Tools , or hit F12 directly.). It also allows you to test compatibility with older browsers like IE8: Bring up Developer Tools with F12. pick IE8 in Browser Mode and IE8 standards in Document Mode .

My Dell laptop wasn't able to use an external monitor after a week's vacation. The symptoms were: No response when pressing Fn+F8 to swtich displays. "No signal" on external monitor. Bring up "Screen Resolution" dialog, only one monitor is avaiable. Click "Advanced settings" in "Screen Resolution" dialog, Adapter Type displays "VgaSave". There's no "Display adapters" section in Device Manager . Solution: re-install the video display driver. My laptop came with Nvidia GPU so I reinstalled the Nvidia driver. Download the driver pack from Dell. The Windows 7 CAB file is about 1GB, which indludes all kinds of drivers.
