After installing Autodesk Revit 2017 on a student’s laptop, the software started whining about missing
msvcr100.dll. This was solved by repairing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4, both x86 and x64.
I was installing Autodesk Vault Professional 2017 in the wee hours today, and I noticed the Autodesk Network License Manager was installed in
C:\Autodesk\Network License Manager. That’s a bit strange when
C:\Autodesk has until now been a temporary location for extracting the setup files.
I can confirm moving the files to a saner location like
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autodesk Network License Manager doesn’t work at all. The NLM simply won’t start and nothing gets logged.
It gets even stranger as one of the LMTOOLS shortcuts wants to run
lmtools.exe from the
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autodesk Network License Manager directory, i.e. the old location. Note, this was done on a newly installed Windows Server.
In short: Be very careful when emptying the
Warning! Your server is on fire! Also, you are out of milk.

C♯ and mono are both a blessing and a curse. Most documentation, FreeBSD-specific or not, on the internet are more or less outdated. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places. It was really frustrating. Soon this will be outdated too.
Start by adding
lang/mono. Then add
x11-toolkits/libgdiplus. Continue reading FreeBSD has mono
I noticed the weekdays was missing from
xclock‘s digital display when run in FreeBSD

I’m in the process of readying a brand new Dell Precision 7710. I’m close to completion. The only thing I’m missing is a driver for the nVidia Quadro M4000M GPU. Continue reading Strange storage systems at Dell
I came across Dan Langille post on
security/ssl-admin and figured I should try it before my old certificates expires later in 2016.
ssl-admin exists mainly for managing OpenVPN certificates, and with some tweaking you can make it work for ordinary SSL/TLS services. Continue reading
