larryo My eighty-ninth podcast is up. In this episode, I chat with Larry Osterman, the man who makes Windows go "ding", about his two-plus decades working for Microsoft. We chat about sound, Vista, Security and generally geek out. I really enjoyed this show and I want to visit Larry again as he's got lots of wisdom to share.

(I stole the photo from Channel9.)

If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with µtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

HTTP Error 404.17 - PHP on IIS7 under 64bit Vista

IIS 7.0 Detailed Error - 404.17 - Not Found - Windows Internet Explorer If you're getting...

"HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found - The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler."

...on Vista while trying to get PHP working under IIS7 with the standard ISAPI "php5isapi.dll" ask yourself, are you running 64-bit? That ISAPI DLL is a 32-bit DLL, so you'll have to either change your default Application Pool to enable 32-bit, or preferably create a separate 32-bit AppPool for your PHP Application.

Right click on the Application Pool and select "Advanced Settings" then "Enable 32-bit Applications."

Advanced Settings

At this point, you're all set with the standard ISAPI PHP stuff. 

phpinfo() - Windows Internet Explorer

Even better, consider using the FastCGI for IIS component. I'll do a screencast on that soon.
