Windows 10 Takes Port 80

Filed under: General — Tags: , , , , , , — Michael @ 13:58

In trying to run a server that listens on port 80 (successfully on Windows XP and Windows 7), I found that the service could not attach to port 80 after I updated to Windows 10. It turns out that, as part of the upgrade, Microsoft has the “World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC)” listen automatically on that port.

The fix: run “services.msc”, stop the World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC), and then change its Startup Type to either “Manual” or “Disabled”.

Thanks go to DeveloperSide.NET for pointing this out!

Error on jAlbum Creation

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — Michael @ 16:40

When creating a photo album today using jAlbum, I got the following error:

Evaluation error on line 2:
Sourced file: inline evaluation of: “ showHomeLink = homeLink != null && homeLink.length() > 0 && !”http://”.equals(h . . . ” : Error in method invocation: Method length() not found in class’bsh.Primitive’

I found a discussion thread that helped fix the problem: I had the “Copyright” field in my “Simplicity” skin set to “2011,” but purely numeric fields cause problems. When I changed the field to include non-numeric text too, everything worked well.

Firefox Error

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — Michael @ 16:22

Joshua Flanigan found a solution to an annoying problem with Mozilla Firefox (the Windows version) in which non-administrators receive error messages when they try to start the program. The error reads

One or more files could not be updated. Please make sure all other applications are closed and that you have permission to modify files, and then restart Firefox to try again.

His solution takes a few steps, but it works.
