  • 1. wk1 files, between a rock and a hard spot
    By the subject you may be able to tell that I am not pleased... Here is my situation: We have an old but very useable program that exports information out into a wk1 file. I had a program that I had developed a couple years ago that would open these files through Excel. This allowed me to grab specific information that would then in turn be used in some AutoCAD drawings. Well my nice shiny new computer with it's nice shiny new Office suite just killed it! Excel does not support this format any more (something to do with security issues so I can't blame them.) So outside of going back to my old system and using that I decided I would give it go to extract the data directly from the wk1 file myself. Easier said than done, I am not finding anything on how I can go about doing this. I am not a computer science engineer so my brain is limited in the information department. I would be pleased if anyone would be willing to share information on this file format and maybe any past experience working with it. Thanks, Marty PS. Yes I am looking into replacing the old program but that will take time also. I need a solution in the interim.

  • 3. Start 'invisible' process
    Is there any Process options that will allow a DOS application to execute without showing the cmd window? My application uses a small DOS application to retrieve a list of machines, but I don't want the window to pop up while this is happening, I want it to be an "invisible" process. Is there any way to do this? I've googled, and have come up with many options, to no avail. I've tried creating a batch file with the appropriate switches, but doesn't seem to turn out the way it should. Any ideas? Thanks

Get IHttpHandler in WCF service

Postby QWxwaGFwYWdl » Sat, 24 May 2008 07:08:00 GMT

Hello,

I want to get the IHttpHandler from a svc service.
With old asmx webservices, I get it using 
WebServiceHandlerFactory.GetHandler .

How can I get IHttpHandler in WCF running in serviceHostingEnvironment : 
aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true" ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

OK; *why* do you want the handler? What do you want to do?

Most things you can do by looking at the WCF pipeline ("inspectors",
etc). Yes, cmopatibility mode is an option, but I wouldn't use it
unless I had to - WCF doesn't always run over http or via ASP.NET...

Marc,

I only want to get the Handler as I was doing in an old asmx webservice.

Yes... but why; what do you want to do with the handler? The point is
that there may be different (but more than adequate) ways of doing
this with WCF. Quite simply, WCF isn't actually part of the ASP.NET
pipeline, and handlers are an ASP.NET feature. If you happen to be
running in ASP.NET, you *might* be able to get the handler (not sure)
via compatibility mode, but I would still consider this a hacky
solution, and it adds unnecessary overhead (the ASP.NET shims) to the
WCF stack.

So if you can tell me what you actually want to do, I might be able to
suggest an appropriate WCF way to do this...

I want to process the following code in WCF:

using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols; 
using System.Web.SessionState; 

public class AspCompatWebServiceHandler : 
    System.Web.UI.Page, IHttpAsyncHandler, IRequiresSessionState
{ 
    protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e) 
    { 
        IHttpHandler handler =
            new WebServiceHandlerFactory ().GetHandler(
                this.Context,
                this.Context.Request.HttpMethod,
                this.Context.Request.FilePath,
                this.Context.Request.PhysicalPath);
        handler.ProcessRequest(this.Context);
        this.Context.ApplicationInstance.CompleteRequest();
    } 

    public IAsyncResult BeginProcessRequest(
        HttpContext context, AsyncCallback cb, object extraData) 
    { 
        return this.AspCompatBeginProcessRequest(
            context, cb, extraData); 
    } 

    public void EndProcessRequest(IAsyncResult result) 
    {
        this.AspCompatEndProcessRequest(result); 
    } 
}


In order for AspCompatWebServiceHandler to work its magic, it must be 
registered as the HTTP handler for ASMX files. You can register it using this 
web.config file: 
<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <httpHandlers>
      <add verb="*" path="*.asmx"
        type="AspCompatWebServiceHandler, __code" />
    </httpHandlers>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

Thanks for your help Marc.

1.AJAX enabled WCF Service Vs Standard WCF Service

Hi Guys,

In Visual Studio 2008 there is an new item template called something 
like "AJAX enabled" WCF Service along with just the standard WCF Service 
template.

Can anyone explain to me what the actual difference is between the two? 
I can see that the AJAX enabled service has a slightly different config 
file, but I'm unsure what actual difference this makes?

In particular, is the format of the data returned different when its 
AJAX enabled - if so, how is it different?

Many thanks in advance

2.Getting Error when Service account of WCF Service is a new account

Hi, I have WCF service and integrated with STS (WS-Federation). The Service 
exposes 5 endpoints Win, UNT and Federated Windows, Federated UNT and Mex 
endpoint.

My STS Service exposes 3 endpoints WIN, UNT and Mex.

I am getting error when I sent a request from a client to WCF Service 
Fed-Win/ Fed-Unt endpoints. But it is passing for the regular Win and Unt 
endpoints.

Error:
Test method AMUnitTest.SessionAMUnitTest.CreateSessionWithWindows threw 
exception:  System.ServiceModel.Security.SecurityNegotiationException: Secure 
channel cannot be opened because security negotiation with the remote 
endpoint has failed. This may be due to absent or incorrectly specified 
EndpointIdentity in the EndpointAddress used to create the channel. Please 
verify the EndpointIdentity specified or implied by the EndpointAddress 
correctly identifies the remote endpoint.  --->  
System.ServiceModel.FaultException: The request for security token has 
invalid or malformed elements..

After digging, I found that it is throwing that error due to the Service 
account of my WCF Service ( this Service account is the new account just 
created and it do not have any profile in the machine where my Service and 
STS are running.

If I change the the Service Account some other user (which is logged in once 
into the machine, then it is creating the profile in the machine) then I am 
able to send the requests to all endpoints including Fed-Win and Fed-Unt 
endpoints.

So here my question is, how can I give the service account of WCF Service to 
a new user and to hit the Fed-Win / Fed-End points successfully.

Please let me know is there any solution for this.
 
cheers,
Ravi
