Remote Desktop Slowness

After switching to using Windows Server 2008 for my OS, I noticed that RDC connections could be quite slow.
The following URL mentions the problem and gives a solution:

The solution that I used was to open a command prompt with admin privileges and run the command:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

Castle and IIS7

If you are using Castle and IIS 7 you may receive the following error:

Looks like you forgot to register the http module Castle.MicroKernel.Lifestyle.PerWebRequestLifestyleModule Add '' to the section on your web.config

This error actual means that you haven't add the PerRequestLifestyle to the modules section within system.webServer.

Just add the following in to your web.config


<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <modules>
            <add name="PerRequestLifestyle" type="..." />
        </modules>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>

Microsoft Press Kit - Library not registered

Have you or are you studying for a Microsoft certification? If you and have installed the Press Kit exams on to a Vista PC, when you run the test software you receive the error:

Run-Time Error -2147319779 (8002801d)
Automation Error
Library not registered

Find it frustrating? To solve this issue, you need to register the VideoSoft component library Vsocx6.
You can do this from the command line with the prompt:

regsvr32 c:\Windows\System32\Vsocx6.ocx
