leave a comment »

The Office 2010 developer training content on Channel 9 and its downloadable Office 2010 Developer Training Kit has been updated. All hands-on labs and source code have been refreshed and the HOLs are now available for viewing on Channel 9.

Eight videos have been added across the three new modules, Access 2010, Application Compatibility and Core Office Development. 

The new Access 2010 videos cover getting started, an introduction to the new design tools and using web

databases. The HOL has been refreshed.

The Application Compatibility videos discuss the new IT Pro tool, Office Environment Assessment Tool (OEAT), for assessing the enterprise environment and the Microsoft Office Code Compatibility Inspector tool for developers to help evaluate their VBA and VSTO code for Office 2010 compatibility. A HOL helps you get acquainted with these tools.

The Core Office Development videos cover working with data in Office, writing VBA code and core UI customization with VBA. The HOL highlights working with data in Office using Excel and document assembly in Word using VBA.

The new 2010 Information Worker Demonstration and Evaluation Virtual Machine (RTM) VHD has just been released for download as well. All the above Office 2010 developer content has been tested on this version of the VM. So download the VHD, install the Office 2010 Developer Training Kit and you will be all set.

Lastly, the SharePoint 2010 developer content on Channel 9 has been refreshed as well so be sure to check it out too.

How Big is the Cloud for Microsoft?

leave a comment »

No, it’s not a rhetorical question, but in simple terms here are some factoids from both some internal and external services. I feel like Cliff Claven ;)

  • 1 billion: Windows Live ID authentications each day
  • 3 to 4 billion:  # of emails filtered daily from >6 million mail boxes by Forefront
  • 450 million: Hotmail users
  • 20 million: Xbox Live users
  • 700,000: Square footage of one of our new datacenters

IE Security Update

leave a comment »

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS10-018 – Critical

Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (980182)

Published: March 30, 2010

Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves nine privately reported vulnerabilities and one publicly disclosed vulnerability in Internet Explorer. The most severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

This security update is rated Critical for all supported releases of Internet Explorer: Internet Explorer 5.01, Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1, Internet Explorer 6 on Windows clients, Internet Explorer 7, and Internet Explorer 8 on Windows clients. For Internet Explorer 6 on Windows servers, this update is rated Important. And for Internet Explorer 8 on Windows servers, this update is rated Moderate.

The security update addresses these vulnerabilities by modifying the way that Internet Explorer verifies the origin of scripts and handles objects in memory, content using encoding strings, and long URL. For more information about the vulnerabilities, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) subsection under the next section, Vulnerability Information.

This security update also addresses the vulnerability first described in Microsoft Security Advisory 981374. The vulnerability, CVE-2010-0806, does not affect Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Internet Explorer 8.

Recommendation. The majority of customers have automatic updating enabled and will not need to take any action because this security update will be downloaded and installed automatically. Customers who have not enabled automatic updating need to check for updates and install this update manually. For information about specific configuration options in automatic updating, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 294871.

For administrators and enterprise installations, or end users who want to install this security update manually, Microsoft recommends that customers apply the update immediately using update management software, or by checking for updates using the Microsoft Update service.
