Graduated LVC, BS in CS. Mostly used Linux (slackware circa kernel 1.2.8) as my main OS, but gradually used Windows 95 more. Initially did some system admin work in NT4, then went the direction of programming, working mostly in Access 97 (for frontend and backend) for about 2 years. After picking up DB design, moved up to MSSQL 7, with VB6 for a frontend. Designed many classic ASP apps with compiled web class ActiveX DLL's and MSSQL 2000 as the DB server. Picked up MySQL and Oracle.

In 2003, started full time development in VC++ with MFC. Started using subversion in combination with bugzilla for management of off-the-shelf kiosk application. In 2005, started dev in .Net 2.0 with C#. Actively develop company website transaction management in ASP.Net, with MSSQL 2005 backend.

Currently learning EF4 in the hope of porting a VB6 Application using an Access 2000 backend to a .Net 4 application using WPF with the MVVM pattern, and SQLite DB for backend.

I work at KioWare, which makes Kiosk Software for Windows and Android.

Did you write the application that calls into the python lib? Is this a debugging issue, where your own program is silent dying?

comment Dual screens, dual audio with 2 separate audio devices?
The thesis of your question lies in "Are there any media players that allow their sound output to be sent to "device XYZ"?" Your problem is application-specific. The application that you are using must be able to target a specific audio out device. In fact, any applications that you are using simultaneously are going to need to support it.

Almost certainly, what you've downloaded is the source tarball instead of the compiled game installer.

Note, that there's a chance that notepad is going to barf when it sees unix linebreaks and/or unicode. Textpad handles both of those.

The fact that it they are all "paper" icons means that windows has no knowledge of the extensions in use. For example, INSTALL has no extension. If you'd rename this to INSTALL.txt, you'd be able to double click and open it in notepad (or whatever is associated with .txt files on your system.)

comment On-board RAID vs Hardware RAID
@shinjijai That link refers to using the OS as the entirety of the RAID solution vs. using a piece of hardware. The OP is asking about hardware vs. hardware.

FYI, DEL /Q does not allow it to silently fail; it still complains. You're going to have to test ahead of time... sorry.

comment Windows seems to lost part of its configuration, how to fix it?
In general, you can't just move the "Program Files" folder. There are registry entries that point to places on disk, permissions, and all kinds of other things that application installers magically do to set up a program's install.
