Duplicate Panel of Controls with “Add New” Button in Windows Forms

Tools: Visual Studio, C#, Windows Forms

UI Mock Up, what I’m trying to do

Hi, this is, I’m sure, a very noobish question. I have no doubt there is plentiful information out there on what I want to do. My problem is that I don’t know what I need to do, or, by extension, how to search for it. The closest I’ve come is using MDI to create multiple instances of a form, it would work, sort of, but I’m not sure if it’s really what I want.

Basically I am trying to create a tool for my friend who’s running a D&D campaign. Each line tracks the health of a particular enemy in the game, the buttons allow the user to add, subtract, or reset health. I have no problem programming the simple calculations needed for the primary functions of this tool, however I can’t seem to figure out how to make it scale-able. The image I attached shows how I want it to look. How do I make the “ADD NEW” button function as expected? Adding a new panel of controls beneath the last? How do I make sure that the added panel only effects its own set of variables? Does this have to be done through multiple instances of a child form via MDI? If so how do I make the new forms pop in as a new panel row as shown in my image instead of as a window?

I don’t need anybody to write me a tutorial, I just need to know what to even search for to find information on what it is I’m trying to do. Perhaps I’m in over my head, but I feel like this should be pretty simple once I learn what I need to learn.

Thank you!

Issue connecting over RDP when on Windows VPN

I have an issue that just began today and not sure what the cause is (I’ve been able to successfully connect this way for several years). On my Windows 7 box, I have a VPN set up in Windows. Today I was on the VPN and logged into an RDP session with no problem. I disconnected from the RDP session and the VPN. A few minutes later, I got back on the VPN, and when attempting several times to connect to the server over RDP again, I got several error messages:

Because of a protocol error this session will be disconnected
Because of a protocol error detected at the client (code 0x1104)
Because of a protocol error detected at the client this session will be disconnected

When attempting to browse a website in Chrome while connected to the VPN, no stylesheets would load. Google Drive lost connectivity, though Dropbox did not. Firefox displayed the following message:

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an
invalid or unsupported form of compression.

I am also seeing SSL Protocol errors in Firefox, and other errors when secure (port 443) requests are made. Disconnecting from the VPN made browsing normally possible again and Google Drive came back.

I have another Windows VPN which I connected to – same issues.

The only thing I can think of is I earlier added a Windows Firewall rule to open ports 53, 88, 138,137,139, 389, 445, 636. I deleted the rule, rebooted, and even turned off the firewall and disabled Microsoft Security Essentials but the issue did not go away.

One other thing – for servers where I do not have to be on a VPN, I can remote desktop fine.

I’m at a loss. Any ideas?

Raspberry Pi 3 with Windows 10 IOT using USB Webcam

I just got this new Raspberry Pi 3 and I have installed Windows 10 IOT on it. I am doing this project and it is for a webcam detecting objects. So my question is, can I use a USB webcam on my Raspberry Pi so when I execute the code on my Raspberry Pi, it will automatically detect the webcam and will bring up an image?

Windows 10, ping FQDN doesn’t work, but nslookup does

I have to deal with a strange problem which I think is related to Windows 10.

Assume that I have the FQDN a.home.lan with A record (the data is fictional)
The DNS service responsible (authoritative) for home.lan is of the same machine which the Domain Controller.

The machine with Windows 10, part of the domain, is on the LAN network with the DNS / Domain Controller machine (Different subnets, but routing is not an issue).

From the Windows 10 machine, I can ping via the IP address the DNS (Domain Controller), IP (associated with a.home.lan) and everything else.
I cannot ping a.home.lan, but nslookup a.home.lan works

I take another machine with Windows 7, same specifications in terms of LAN, part of the same domain, etc.
I can ping the IP address of the DNS, and a.home.lan and of course the nslookup works.

Considering the above tests, I think the issues is on the Windows 10 machine.

What can be that Windows 10 is doing differently than Windows 7 in terms of domain name resolution?

I looked around, but most of the problems were users pinging the hostname and the client didn’t have in the suffix list the domain, but in my case I’m always doing FQDN.

Synology NAS – custom script after join a Windows Domain possible?

I have a Synology NAS DS415 and
I have a question: Is it possible to start automatically a custom (bash) script after a special action. I need to do some configuration stuff after the  Synology NAS has joined a windows domain. Do you know in which directory I can add my custom script?
I thought I can use the task schedular but this feature is only usable after boot and shutdown events.
Thanks a lot!

Can’t change or set password in Windows 7

I’m trying to set up a new user in a Win7Pro computer. The computer has HP ProtectTools enabled.

I cannot set the password from within HP ProtectTools or the User Accounts control panel, when logged in either as myself (administrator) or as the new user. I also cannot use net user from an admin-level command prompt, nor can I use the Local Users and Groups pane of the Computer Management dialog.

Whenever I try to do set the password in any of these ways, the dialog or command prompt freezes. For Control Panel and ProtectTools, the dialog turns 50% white, and mouse starts spinning. For cmd and Computer Management, I get the helpmsg 2245:

The password does not meet the password policy requirements. Check the minimum password length, password complexity and password history requirements.

However, the Local Security Policy administrative tools applet has Password Policy set to:

  • Enforce password history: 0 passwords remembered
  • Maximum password age: 0
  • Minimum password age: 0 days
  • Minimum password length: 0 characters
  • Password must meet complexity requirements: Disabled
  • Store passwords using reversible encryption: Disabled

In short, there should be no requirements.

Why do I get this message, and how can I resolve it?
