AzureADSamples on GitHub - Unauthorized Error on Published App (NativeClient-DotNet Sample) - http://blogs.msdn.com/b...
I've been working through some of the AzureAD samples that are out on GitHub to try to get acquainted with how all this stuff works (i.e. Azure AD, ADAL, OpenID Connect). I was having some problems getting the sample service code running on my machine so I decided to just publish the service to Azure in the hopes that a published app would work better. For some of the samples it did indeed work better, but for the samples that try to illustrate calling a WebAPI from a native client, I was running into a road block where I was getting an Unauthorized error when I sent a request with what looked to be a legit Authorization Header. Just prior to throwing my keyboard at Matt Sampson, I decided to check the instructions one more time to see if there were some specific to publish. Sure enough there were (I had of course skipped these, because if there is one area of web development that I have a lot of experience, it is publishing). The most important step in these instructions is: On the...

How to create a blog post on MSDN Blogs
Today, I thought I will start blogging with some of the stuff that I learnt. I am a Microsoft FTE and didn't have any blog under my name. I have to figure out how to create a blog and add new posts on blogs.msdn.com . So here are the clear steps 1. At first, associate your Microsoft corp account with your live account. If not associated, it will not give the option to create a new blog. Follow the link below and it will associate the account https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Profile... 2. Create a new blog http://blogs.msdn.com/create-... 3. Once created, it will forward to the dashboard where you can create blog posts. 4. After that, if you want to add more posts, you can go to http://blogs.msdn.com/control... and start adding new blog posts. If you are not a Microsoft FTE, the link http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki... talks about it I added this post by following these...

StorSimple 5000/7000 Series: Advisory: Disaster Recovery (DR) for appliances running software versions 2.1.1.454 through 2.1.1.478 - http://blogs.msdn.com/b...
Customers must engage the support team in order to execute Disaster Recovery (DR) on any StorSimple appliance running a software version between v2.1.1.454 and v2.1.1.478. With these software versions, there is a possibility that the DR process may not complete properly if there is a cloud connectivity issue. To avoid any potential for an incomplete DR workflow, it is mandatory that the support team be involved in any DR situation for appliances running these software versions. FAQ’s: Do I need to be concerned about my appliance on which a DR was already done? No, if the DR workflow was already successfully executed, there is no cause for concern. Are other version of the appliance software impacted when doing a DR? Other than software versions 2.1.1.454 through 2.1.1.478, no other versions are impacted by this advisory. How do I contact the StorSimple support team for help with Disaster Recovery? Please open a service request at this link or by calling the Microsoft support phone...

How to work around a possible XNA Game Studio setup failure on Windows 10 technical preview - http://blogs.msdn.com/b...
A while back, I wrote about an application compatibility issue that can cause the Windows Phone SDK and XNA Game Studio to fail to install on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Recently, I heard from a colleague who ran into a similar-sounding issue when trying to install XNA Game Studio on the Windows 10 technical preview. After looking at the setup log files, I confirmed that the same application compatibility issue that affected these installers on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 also affects them on Windows 10. The application compatibility dialog that appears in this scenario on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 links directly to the blog post that contains the workaround, but the equivalent dialog on the Windows 10 technical preview doesn’t link there currently. How to work around this issue To summarize my other blog post, if you run into an issue installing XNA Game Studio on the Windows 10 technical preview, you can solve it in most cases by downloading and installing the latest version of the...

Epic Saga Chapter 6: Wherein I learn to Remotely Build and Run on the iOS Simulator But Am Ultimately Disappointed
This post is the sixth post in the series: Uploading Images from PhoneGap/Cordova to Azure Storage using Mobile Services In the previous chapter of my epic saga to create a Cordova app that uploads binary images files directly to Azure Blob storage, I got the Android emulator running, but when I went to deploy and run my app, the sad emulator would not accept the captured image—the check button literally did nothing. I knew it was a longshot, but I thought as a last ditch attempt why not try the iOS simulator. I still don’t have an iOS device, but I had previously borrowed the MacBook Pro from work. I had read that Cordova (or was it PhoneGap?) supported remote deployment to the iOS simulator from a Windows computer to a Mac with XCode installed. After a bit or research into the Multi-Device Hybrid Apps extension for Visual Studio (aka. Cordova extension), I discovered that with a bit of configuring on both side of the connection, this was indeed possible. According to the docs, all I...

Microsoft recently released Security Advisory 3009008 to help address a vulnerability in SSL 3.0. This vulnerability affecting the SSL 3.0 protocol is not specific to Microsoft StorSimple 5000/7000/8000 series devices. Customers who have chosen to encrypt their data with an AES256 encryption key are protected from this vulnerability for enterprise data. To further protect our customers, we are working on disabling SSLv3.0 on the StorSimple device and in Azure over the coming months.

Changes to targeting mobile devices coming to Bing Ads in March 2015 - http://blogs.msdn.com/b...
Last month, we rolled out Tablet related device targeting changes. This change consolidated PC and Tablet targeting across campaigns, while advertisers maintain the flexibility of having bid modifier for Tablet. Phase 1 of our unified device targeting is now complete. As promised, today we will detail the Phase 2, and describe its impact on campaigns that target mobile devices. What is changing in Device Targeting? Device targeting across campaigns will be unified by eliminating explicit mobile device targeting. Advertisers will be able leverage bid modifiers on Mobile. We will continue having the bid modifier on Tablet as well. Once this change is rolled out, there should be complete compatibility between how ad campaigns are managed in Google AdWords and in Bing Ads. Currently, the following device targeting options are available in Bing Ads: Figure 1: Current Device Targeting Options As mentioned earlier, for compatibility with ad campaigns management in Google AdWords, we will be...

Using Bookmarks in SQL Server Management Studio - http://blogs.msdn.com/b...
In SQL Server one way we optimize code is by adding indexes. Indexes help queries by essentially letting the engine know “hey, here’s the fast way to get directly to the data you want”. The alternative is doing full table scans to read all the data, which sucks. When reviewing code in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) we have a similar built-in tool to help save you time: Bookmarks! Bookmarks aren’t quite like indexes but they do help you mark locations in code that you can quickly jump to. This is especially helpful when reviewing code in large scripts. For this example I’m going to use the amazingly useful Diagnostic Information Queries script (which you should be using if you’re not already) from Glenn Berry (Twitter | Blog). This script is jam packed with all sorts of amazingly insightful information on your server and databases. However I often need to jump around to different parts of the script. For example, when performance tuning I like to run Glenn’s code for getting back...

IOT: Build your own boards! FAB fabulously!

How To Improve the IT-Business Relationship - http://blogs.msdn.com/b...
It’s possible to change IT from a poorly respected cost center to a high-functioning business partner. Driving business transformation is a people, process, and technology thing. Some people think they can change their business without IT. The challenge is that technology is the enabler of significant business change in today’s digital landscape. Cloud, Mobile, Social, and Big Data all bring significant capabilities to the table, and IT can hold the keys. But the business doesn’t want to hear that. Business Leaders Want to Hear About the WHY and WHAT of the Business Business leaders don’t want to hear about the HOW of technology. Business leaders want to hear about the impact on their business. They want to hear about how predictive analytics can help them build a better pipeline, or target more relevant offers. Business leaders want to hear about how they can create cross-sell/upsell opportunities in real-time. And, business leaders want to hear about the business benefits and the...
