During a recent deployment I had had an issue with the registration of a DLL. Part of the deployment process included the registration with RegSvr32. On one computer the registration failed with the error “LoadLibrary failed - The specified module could not be found”. This error was a bit troublesome as the installation process was previously successful on several other computers. I verified the path was correct, the library existed, permissions were correct and more.
I used Process Monitor to trace the activity, filtered on the Regsvr32 process, and noticed that a dependent library was missing. Process Monitor indicated, in the list, the specific file that was not found. In the end I copied the missing library to the computer and the registration was successful.

I had recently experienced a strange issue with a SSIS Package. This was basic package that copied data from a SQL Server table to a text file. This SSIS package was deployed in production for several months without issue, until – a minor change needed to be made. The change was insignificant; the location (path) of the output file (a config file is usually used but in this case I wanted to edit the package) needed to be changed. I had changed the path, built and deployed the package. Soon after deploying the package I received word that the file created was not correct.
I reviewed the output file and noticed that each record (line) ended with strange hex looking data: _x003C_none_x003E__x003C_none_x003E_
I scratched my head for a bit, reviewed the package’s source and destination connections and could not find where this odd _x003C_none_x003E_ data was coming from. I decided to view the package with a different editor and realized that somehow the Text Qualifier property for the Flat File Connection Manager was set to this “strange” sequence.
I removed the value, built and deployed the package and everything was back to normal - well as normal as it could be...

Did you know that almost all digital cameras (including SmartPhones) save specific metadata, such as camera settings and scene information, within the image (photo) files that they create?
This information is called EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) data. Information such as the camera or phone make, model and image resolution is stored within the photo. GPS enabled cameras may also store location information from where the picture was taken.
whatmyphotosays.com lets you view the EXIF data for photos found on your computer or the internet.
Follow this link to whatmyphotosays.com and see what EXIF data is saved in your pictures.
