V Image Mover - Copy/Move Images Making Easy

The first thing you might ask every time you see a software is "what is the need for it?".There are 100's if not 1000's of free softwares out there on the web for image organizing and browsing, how is this software different from them?.

I have personally used many of the free image viewers like Infranview, Slowview, Xnview,FastStone and many more.These softwares do lot more things than "V Image Mover" and provides several ways to move/copy your images from source to destination. However some of them are not quick while others are not very intuitive. So V Image Mover came to life and is solely targetted for moving/copying images.

Photography has been changed drastically in the last decade, with today's camera's and mobile devices you can take 10's if not 100's of pictures per minute. So there is lot of burden on us to selectively pick pictures that we like and keep them for our memories. Space is getting much cheaper every day, it doesn't mean that we should keep all those 1000's of pictures and never look at them again.

The next question is how will I end up with so many images when I could only import the pictures I want using my camera software. In an ideal world you would have time to pick the pictures you want right from the camera, but sometimes you are in a rush to dump all the pictures to a folder and freeup some space on the camera for your next creative photo shooting. Also not to mention that some of the camera softwares to import pictures doesn't support the sizing of thumbnails in the view and other features that you would like.

Thumbnail generation is done using and the the credit goes to them.

Remote Desktop "Credentials Did Not Work"

I know that my username and password are right when connecting to a pc using remote desktop connection, but always giving me error about the credentials.After playing around for hours and hours I found that the user name I am entering is not the user name that Remote Desktop Connection.

When I installed the operating system I have created a user name "tester" and then renamed it to "debugger". I opened control panel and cheked the profile and it seems like it kept "tester" instead of debugger, but Remote Desktop Connection was expecting me to type "tester" which is weird. User in the control panel and in the login screen were showing as "debugger".

SQL Server 2012 sp1 and Visual Studio 2012 Installation Errors

It literally took me 2 days not 8 hour days 14 hour days to make everything work right.

I started with Windows Home Premium(which I shouldn't have) and SQL Server 2012 with SP1(note that VS Studio Express was there on the pc).I didn't go any where as I need Windows 7 sp1 and I couldn't install it on my pc successfully(TRUST_E_NOSIGNATURE(0X800B0100), searched through web and found out that re-install was my only option).

I have decided to re-install win 7 home premium and got the sp1 going on, then I started with SQL Server 2012 with SP1 Dev Edition.After about 20% in the installation process I got an error about Visual Studio 2010 shell(along these lines This installation package could not be opened).I continued with the error and installation completed with errors syaing that Sql Server Data Tools installation is failed. Then installed Visual Studio 2012 Premium, everything seems to went fine.

I was able to start the SQL Server instance and connect to it, but when I opened the adventure works database warehouse project, VS says that it is not a valid project.Tried to get myself a copy of  SQL Server Data Tools on the web with no luck.I thought that problem is with OS so I figured out this I will go Pro or higher version of OS to solve the problem.

Installed Windows 8 Enterprise and repeated the order of installation same as windows 7 mentioned above and ended up with same errors(tired by now, to download and install OS'es,hundreds of updates...etc).Same error with Visual Studio Shell.

I didnt want to give up, so wiped the entire hard drive(3rd time) and started with Windows 7 Enterprise and followed the order below and I am all up and running(aaah!...).

Windows 7 Enterprise(& 143 Updates)
Visual Studio 2010 Premium
Visual Studio 2012 Premium
Visual Studio SP1
Windows 7 SP1(SQL Sever 2012 SP1 & SSDT Needs Win 7 Sp1)
Sql Server Data Tools 2010 & 2012
SQL Server 2012 with SP1

Good Luck Folks!, what a pain.

Error 87 Paramater is invalid using runas

Some times you might have to impersonate a user when launching visual studio, to automate this process we can create a batch file with runas and /savecred.

When doing that you might encounter a error 87 parameter is invalid, to avoid this make sure you put the user name with domain like 'Test\User1'
