Website problem for

I just discovered that there are some issues with that makes it impossible to download a new version of MSMQ Studio at the moment. I also have some issues with an e-commerce site that I am responsible for. These issues are most probably related to that the hosting service updated PHP from 5.2 to 5.3 today and for some reason this made the menu system on the site to fail. I will dig into this problem this evening when I get home from my day job and the kids are put to sleep.

These issues was very unfortunate as I should have released a new version of MSMQ Studio today and the previous version will stop to work today as well. Unfortunately I will not be able to release the new version until tomorrow and I am very sorry if this will cause you any problems.

Now you can download MSMQ Studio 0.9.0 from!! This version has big improvements in working with remote computers. You can now see subqueues on remote computers and also move messages between queues and subqueues and all the other usual operations.

This is probably the last beta of MSMQ Studio and I have extended the timebomb in it to 2010-02-01 so it will not stop working during the holidays.

I just discovered today that you cannot add private queues to the local computer using the context menu when you right click on “Private Queues”. So this is a minor release just to fix this issue.

You can download the new version here.


Silverlight 4: System.Xml.Linq.dll is missing?? Well, sort of…

I have played around a little with Silverlight 4 the last couple of days and I was consuming a REST service but when I wanted to use XLinq for querying the response I couldn’t find it in the References dialog.


And when I searched on the internet for a solution to this I found out that many others had the same experience. But they solved it by copying the System.Xml.Linq.dll assembly from the Silverlight SDK to the Reference Assemblies folder.

The reason for the absence of System.Xml.Linq.dll in Silverlight 4 is actually that the Silverlight team wanted to keep the Silverlight 4 runtime as small as possible (~4 Mb) even though they added more functionality that in Silverlight 3. What they did then was that they removed assemblies that can be seen as “luxury” to have in the runtime and put them into the SDK instead so that if you want use XLinq have to distribute it within your own .XAP-file.



InstallShield LE for VS 2010…..

2009-12-15 20:14:55 by Kjell-Åke Gafvelin

That is a product I will never use!! I have been using WiX for the last 4.5 years building setup packages for all my projects and I am very happy with it!!

If you also are disappointed that Microsoft dropped WiX from VS 2010 and now introduces InstallShield LE instead, then please join me and others in telling Soma Segar that at!
