[Slightly OT] Microsoft 'permalink' URLs

For the .Net framework 3.0, the download link is...

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=70848

If I'm creating an installer, how do I find the permalink for
redistributable s? For example, I need to package the Visual J# 2.0SE redist,
how do I find the permalink for it? If I look at the target of the URL for
downloading I end up with:

http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/i...2fvjredist.exe

Which I'm not convinced is a good thing to be linking to. So the question
is, how do I find the LinkIds for the various redists I have to package up?

Hi Tim,

As for setup project's prerequisite, the url to download product you
mentioend is called "HomeSite" link. Based on my experience, not all the
products or redistributable package has such a directly HOMTSITE link,
however, for most products, you can use its mapping url(from
go.microsoft.co m ) as its HOMTSITE link. Here is a forum thread wihch
mentioned the mapping url for V J# redist package:

#Visual J# Redistributable Package v2.0.50727
http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/Sho...94999&SiteID=1

Hope this helps .

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng

Howdy I've been given conflicting answers about search engines picking up urls like: http://mysite.com/index.php?var1=1&var2=2&var3=3 Do search engines pick up these urls? I've been considering converting a site of mine to PHP-Nuke, but if the individual modules aren't picked up in search engines I'm not going to do it. Thanks phpKid

I'm working on a site with more than 1700 HTML files. We'll be moving files around on this site a lot because we're reorganizing it. I'm thinking of writing a script that will convert all URLs in href and src attributes to absolute URLs with this form: href="/somedir/somefile.htm" src="/images/somecategory/image.gif" That way, if you move a page from one directory to another, the links and image references within the page will not...

If you specify a Destination with both an Address and a Via, the Address is used as both the Url property (transport) AND the "To" SOAP header. The Via portion is effectively ignored, making it impossible to connect to web services with SoapActor attributes or behind NAT / PAT. I can provide a complete test case upon request, although the issue is quie easy to replicate. Thanks,

I have been creating a personal blog engine for the last couple of weeks because I am tired of using WordPress and I don't have a SQL server back-end. I have successfully created a working URL rewriting engine (via Global.asax) that cleans illegal characters from the post title, uses Regular Expressions to grab the entryID (ie 13), rewrite the path (entry.aspx?entryID=13). My current permalink structure is as follows: ...

Hello all, I feel dumb having to ask this question in the first place, but I just can not figure it out. I am wanting to set my site up using dynamic urls (I'm assuming that's what they're called, an example of what I have in mind is index.php?page=). However, I can not figure out how to do this. I will eventually want to use SEF urls, but for now I'll be content just to have the dynamic urls. If anyone can tell me how to do this, I'd...

Hello This is a rant. If you don't want to read it then don't, simple really. I usually spend my working life buried away in the back ends (fnar) of business systems.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
