Error code: Internet_31
Error code: Internet_7
Error code: 0x80004005
Try to rename or delete sync.log file (Windows/ActiveSync) on your mobile device,
Do a full hard reset, which will involve having to reinstall and set everything up all over again....
Try Synchronizing again. It'll hopefully either work (unlikely) or come up with some different error message.
Error code: HTTP_403
This worked for me:
- Open up Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
- On the tree wanderdown, Internet Information Services ->
(local computer) -> Web Sites -> Default Web Site
- Find exchange-oma and right click on it.
- Choose Properties -> Directory Security -> Edit (IP address and domain name restrictions)
- Select "By default all computers will be 'granted access' "
- Click apply
Error code: Internet_45
The issue is that your Exchange Server does not have a certificate that your mobile can believe in. Sad, but such things happen. Mention it to your Exchange Admin, but ignore anything else they might say (unless it is some quite salacious gossip, in which case hurry to a terminal and post it on the internet, hmm, I'm digressing).
Here is some blurb I picked up:
INTERNET_45 (ERROR_INTERNET_INVALID_CA): Synchronization failed. The security certificate on the server is invalid. Contact your system administrator or ISP to install a valid certificate on the server and try again.
Explanation: The synchronization client tried to validate the certificates, but it detected that a certificate that is not valid is installed.
User Action: Install a valid certificate on the server, and then try to synchronize again.
By default, the following root certificates are installed on Pocket PC 2002 devices.
- Verisign Class 1 Public Primary CA
- Verisign Class 2 Public Primary CA
- Verisign Class 3 Public Primary CA
- Verisign Class 3 Public Primary CA (2028)
- GTE Cybertrust ROOT
- GTE Cybertrust Solutions ROOT
- Thawte Server CA
- Thawte Premium Server CA
- Entrust.net Secure Server
- Entrust.net CA (2048 bit)
If you are using a certificate that is not trusted, you can turn off certificate validation on the device by using a .cab file that is provided in the Support\Tools\Disable SSL folder on the Microsoft Mobile Information CD. Copy the AS_Cert_OFF.cab file to your device, and then run the program on your device.
Well what you actually need is this:
inside here are three files:
Disable Certificate Check.doc
The "Disable Certificate Check.doc" will tell you what to do, but if you can't be doing with reading that, 'cause you're already more than a little annoyed with PocketPC problems...
Open a command prompt,
certchk query will tell you what the current status is.
It should report Certificate checking is now ON.
certchk off will switch the checking to off.
Try Synchronizing again. It'll hopefully either work (unlikely) or come up with some different error message.

Windows AT command
AT 07:00 /EVERY:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31 cmd /c C:\scripts\script.cmd
I want the script to run at 7 am every day. Now if I put the days of the week, M, Tu, W etc. it will trip up if someone changes the locale, so is safer to put the numbers for each day in the month.
The cmd /c is because I want to run a cmd script or batch file, AT only works on .exe files, so giving it cmd.exe makes it happy.

The Zoo was interesting, lots of information about all sorts of animals, yet the petshop also had lots of information, more infact, didn't cost anything to get in, you could get closer to the animals, and they gave detailed information about the animals on A4 photocopies.
Hmm, which is better? The Zoo had much bigger animals and a restaurant ...

On one of the exhibits a member of the party received an incredible set of blood pressure results. As everyone else's readings seemed normal, they were taken to see a doctor as soon as possible. Doctor pronounced the machine faulty and their blood pressure OK.

How was she supposed to know it was art? :-)
Then on to the Vikingeskibsmussete in Roskilde, and how lovely, the Sun came out as we walked around the harbour and thoroughly enjoyed chatting to staff and researchers who work there. Lovely place and so interesting.

Bringing in the sheafs, part 2
It is Sunday, everything is stopped whilst all the farm workers go to church.
The quiet will only last as long as the vicars sermon.

Bringing in the sheafs
My tractor drivers, permies versus contract, are having a little competition: they have got it into their heads that the one doing the most runs from the fields to the grain driers gets to borrow my Gallardo for a weekend.
The way they are driving them tractors is making me have second thoughts about that one.
But they have to be done by Tuesday night as it is forecast to rain Wednesday early morning, and the straw has to be off the fields too.
We're using two methods of bailing, the old oblong type and the newer circular ones. The trucks carrying the circular ones carry 9 bales at time, 6 on the floor three on top. The truck + pile is higher than the house. The way they come around the corner is a little worrying too, think I might move the cars further down the garden.

This is so you can work out your prejudices.
Hmm, know some that have need of this...
Holiday, Day 4 of 12
Bumped into a couple who said they were from Manchester, yet he sounded a little Danish and she sounded Welsh. Turns out he was from Denmark, but had spent a good few years in Manchester where he met her and she had moved to Manchester for work. A little light rain shower killed the conversation and into the Domkirke to look around this beautiful cathedral.
Then a trip down the side of the Fjord stopping and looking in at a pet shop cum garden centre cum pond shop near Aegrup.

Virtual PC/Windows CE Emulator
'Virtual PC/Windows CE Emulator' will cause Windows to become unstable. Windows has prevented these drivers from loading. Click here for more details.
Irritated by it this morning I have determined to find out the cause and remove it. So clicked, which took me to: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;891667 and read the info. Not a great deal of help, only gave a method for removing the message, not the problem.
Doing a websearch about problems with XP2 and drivers eventually threw up these two pages:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883775 , and listed in this last one are several files, so a search for each in turn is called for. Got a hit on that.
So the further investigation revealed that 'Physical Address Extension' comes in with Service Pack 2 (SP2) and a file VPCAppSv.sys is the cause. It must have been left over from something I have installed, used and removed as part of the day to day life of using a Windows machine.
So I find there are several ways to get rid of the error message.
- Fiddle with 'Physical Address Extension' i.e. remove /PAE from boot.ini or add /NOPAE if /PAE is not already there.
- Add a /NoExecute=AlwaysOff to boot.ini, this also has the effect of switching off 'Data Execution Prevention', don't think I like the sound of that, tried it, and removed it. Curiously though the machine appeared to boot and run slightly faster.
- Finally, just remove the offending driver, VPCAppSv.sys, as I am not using it. I like that one.
So, after deleting the offending file I find the message has gone away. Now my interest is piqued, what does this VPCAppSv.sys do? Another websearch is called for, and what do I find: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wceintro5/html/wce50conMacallanReleaseNotes.asp , but a page that includes details about how to uninstall it! It would appear this file came in as part of Windows CE 5.0 and the uninstallation of that is not completely clean.

Go to Roskilde Rib House, (Djalma Lunds Gaard 5 B, 4000 Roskilde) for dinner.
Notice a good few people dressed in curious 60s fashion. Finally discover that later they will have a Jazz band playing. That explains the strange fashions.
The day a lost tiger brought the M11 to a standstill
Essex police not only found Tyrone, but also set up a rolling road block so he could be recovered.
Amy said "They had to stop the traffic to get Tyrone. I think policemen are brilliant. I've had Tyrone for five years. He's my favourite bear
Talking heads are saying "what a waste of money" and the "amount of disruption was excessive".
Andrew Rosindell, Tory MP for Romford, said: "I think our police have a reputation for going the extra mile to satisfy the public - in that spirit I think it's all very well.
"But I think the disproportionate chaos that this would have caused and the cost involved, not to mention the fact that the police would not be out catching criminals, doesn't seem to justify the action taken.
"I'd prefer to see these officers on the streets and chasing burglars."
A spokesman for Essex Police said: "Tyrone was spotted on the motorway and successfully captured and locked securely in the back of a police car.
"Rolling roadblocks were set up to allow the traffic officers to safely get out of their car and grab him.
"A phone call to dad in Ramsgate has resulted in one delighted daughter.
"We did not specifically task the officer to find Tyrone but, having children of his own, he knows the importance of toys to their owners.
"It was a minor inconvenience to motorists which I am sure would have been acceptable to all those who have experienced similar circumstances."
Police said Tyrone had been sent from Essex to Kent courtesy of Royal Mail, to be reunited with Amy.
I think maybe a childs smile was probably worth it.

Harry Potter and Horcruxes: a theory
I am getting to really like that Voldemort chap.
Anyways I have a theory on Horcruxes, well where one of them is: I believe we shall find the last Horcrux to actually be Harry Potter himself. Voldemort needs to kill as part of the spell to create a Horcrux, which he did to Harrys Parents. Also Harry Potter seems to have this unexplained strong connection to Voldemort. So the only way to be rid of Voldement for good would be when Harry Potter finally dies.

Cocaine in the Po
Benzoylecgonine, a by-product of Cocain metabolism, levels found in the river Po, in northern Italy, suggest the equivalent of 40,000 doses of Cocain have been taken by the 5 million inhabitants of the area.
That explains the driving.

A theory of computer programming
What the computer actually does although superficially adhering to what the programmer intended does at numerous points diverge.
MI5 taking down terrorist websites?
I just find that so hard to believe. The UK is a bastion of free speech and expression.
Now if they said Gordon Brown (Chancellor of the Exchequer UK) had proposed a new tax on (suicide) bomber jackets. That, I could believe.
