comment Webdav between a OS X Server (self-signed certificate) and Windows 7?
I have the same issue connecting another WebDAV site, also with self signed certificate. Same problem, credentials not accepted. I have tried to install the self signed certificate as Trusted Authority under Win 7 -still no success.

comment Testing memory on NVidia 660 graphics card
OK, here is my understanding. Normal test programs for VGAs (I have seen) draw a lot of graphics, images etc. They ask you whether you see a certain pattern correctly or draw millions of primitives and benchmark the time. But what if I see sometimes some spikes or artifacts? Can be the cable, the monitor, or some other stuff. I want to run a test and say "test the video memory, and only the memory" and give me a result on this. That's what I have not seen in such programs. If there is one with such an option, that's the answer (if working with NVidia cards, of course).

comment Testing memory on NVidia 660 graphics card
Is that so? Is it not the way you can write programs for modern GPUs as you write programs for CPUs. I am not an expert on this, but I'd expect that you can arbitrary test code. Correct me if I am wrong. Also I'd expect the VGA has a memory test routine you can trigger via an API (again, just a guess).

comment CMD: Append to path without duplicating it?
I have used "", e.g. "my path". OK, I'll try without quotes, and should have written "in quotes", sorry it was misleading.

comment CMD: Append to path without duplicating it?
Nice, but does it work with spaces in the path? I have tested it with my particular paths, the one "quoted and with spaces" gets re-added. One just quoted but no spaces seems to work.

comment Windows 7 - easiest way to tell whether AERO / DWM is enabled?
This only shows whether you really have an AERO theme. However, if I use an AERO theme, change some settings towards a basic look and feel, this does not work anymore (reliably). See allquixotic's comment above. Nevertheless a good hint +1

comment Windows 7 - easiest way to tell whether AERO / DWM is enabled?
Very good. Especially since it explains why I have asked the question. Just by looking at the theme you cannot always tell whether DMW is enabled or not!

comment Windows 7 - easiest way to tell whether AERO / DWM is enabled?
Is there no other way to tell than just he visual impression. Because if you use remote tools, this can be misleading / hard to tell. Also, when you start with an AERO theme, but change it, does this disable AERO or not? Basically I need something to certainly tell whether DWM is on / off.

comment Windows: Is there something to see and remotely control single(!) windows on a remote PC?
Yep, I think I have seen that feature with VMWare (not 100% sure), where I did run my browser in a VM but displayed it as "normal window". Since I cannot run my app in a VM I am looking for this particular feature - this question has been asked with no answer in the past, but maybe something has come up.

Will do, but this seems obviously a tricky one. Also questions with UNC path / timeout do not have answers: serverfault.com/questions/253690/…

comment Windows 7 NTFS Symbolic Link - Network Share Availability/Timeout
Good question +1, did you find out how to adjust it (the timeout)? Exactly the same issue for me.
