Layers-iconDownload GeoTransformer.zip (1.29 Mb)

A new version of GeoTransformer is now available. Starting from version 3.0 the application supports third party extensions (description on how to develop them will follow) and also by default contains much more functionality, such as the Bing map view.

Also version 3.1 contains an important fix for the Bing translator that restores its functionality to GeoTransformer.

Note: if your version automatically upgraded to version 3.0 few weeks ago then you will not get automatic update to this or any future version because of a bug in that particular version. Please update manually.

How to enable translation in GeoTransformer

Recently Microsoft changed their Translator from free application to a paid service. Fortunately they still offer 2 million character translations every month free of charge.

This means however that each user of GeoTransformer will have to register with Microsoft himself to make sure that those 2 millions characters are not split between multiple users.

This requires two steps:

1. Open Windows Azure Marketplace and activate the free subscription (you will have to log in using your Windows Live account).

2. Open Windows Azure Marketplace Registered Applications and register a new application. The important values are “Client ID” and “Client secret”.

Once these two steps are performed you can now enable Bing Translator in GeoTransformer by entering these two values in the configuration section.

Windows profilu saglabāšana, mainot domēnus

Tipiskā sāpe, kad datoru pievieno domēnam vai domēnu maina ir viss pazaudētais lietotāja profils – ikonas uz desktop, dokumentu mapes jāpārvieto utt. Līdz šim pāris reizes biju piedzīvojis, ka profils tiek saglabāts, taču to vienmēr pavadīja administratoru smags darbs.

Kad atkal nonācu šajā nepatīkamajā situācijā, pie tam ar datoru, ko biju lietojis jau divus gadus (un atbilstoši daudz sīkumu bija sakrājies profilā), atradu risinājumu, kas ir absolūti vienkāršs un strādājošs.

ForensiT Domain Migration

Es izmantoju bezmaksas versiju, kas bez problēmām man ļāva savu aktīvo profilu nomigrēt no viena domēna uz otru. Neviens fails netika pārvietots (zināma problēma, ja profils ir >50Gb, bet brīvi ir tikai 5Gb). Pazuda visa veida saglabātās paroles un Internet Explorer pēdējās dienas vēsture (vecāka saglabājās). Katrā ziņā nesalīdzināms rezultāts ar alternatīvu, kad tiktu izveidots tīrs profils.
