Using Dynamics NAV 4.x client on Vista x64

Yesterday we had a strange issue on using the Dynamics NAV 4.02 client on a Vista x64 operating system. After applying the trick on sqlsrv32.dll, the error was this: Surprise... the MDAC error is appeared again... seems that the dll was not hacked...

Sharepoint Designer is now free

I've received this wonderful news this morning (it's not an April's fool joke): Sharepoint Designer, the tool that every Sharepoint developer must have, it's now totally free.
