Make sure you have Windows 10 with the anniversary update or newer.

You can verify this by pressing the winkey + R and type ‘winver’ and hit enter. The anniversary update has buildnr 14393. And make sure that you have the “Bash on Ubuntu on Windows” feature enabled.

Xmllint is not included by default, so you have to install it first.

sudo apt install libxml2-utils

You can read more about xmllint on http://xmlsoft.org/

in order to format a large XML file which has no line breaks you have to use xmllint like this:

xmllint --format input_xml_file.xml > pretty_output_xml_file.xml

You use the format option on the input_xml_file.xml and redirect the output (>) to a new file with the name pretty_output_xml_file.xml

This is a lot faster than opening the file in notepad++ and use the xml plugin to format it.

Hope it helped. Good luck!

I had to blog this, because the GUI option mentioned on msdn did not work on my locale (nl_nl)

I have stored an mp3 in my OneDrive music folder on my Win 10 (build 14393.693) and it syncs to OneDrive online. So far so good. When I go to https://music.microsoft.com

it is not there. When I click on the song on https://onedrive.live.com/ it starts to open music.microsoft.com and I see:

So something is wrong there:

snip_20170208100957

So I cannot play the mp3 which is in my OneDrive music folder. They appear up on onedrive.com so the onedrive sync is working fine. The problem is with my groove connection. When I locally start groove, there is the mp3. Because I stored it on my HDD it loads locally, but does not show up from onedrive.

Local Groove:

I clicked on the option to reset my groove catalog which seems to reset my cloud collection:

This does give me my recently added track. But only as “unknown”

There is a lot which is not known…

Perhaps this all happened because I added the onedrive/music folder which is local as folder to watch for groove:

I have removed that reference now and this seems to fix it Smile Even the new track is not an unknown one!

 

I hope this might help someone

I thought that USB to Ethernet adapters where a universal thing and I was wrong. It took me a 517MB download to get to a 503kb .exe containing the drivers.

I downloaded the Boot Camp Support Software 5.1.5769 from https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1837?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

If you extract the zip and go to the folder “BootCamp\Drivers\Asix” you will find the AsixSetup64.exe which is just 503kb.

 

Alternative: download the 503kb file from mega.

If it succeeds, it will show something similar to the picture below in the device manager

So my Surface pro 3 running the anniversary update and latest updates got hot. So hot that I got the white thermometer of death.

I borrowed this picture from this topic on Microsoft Community. I could not take my own picture, because I was too upset.

So I contacted the store where I bought the device and there has been a change with the return policy in the Netherlands. So I could not send it in for repair at the store. I had to contact Microsoft myself. After logging in with my Microsoft account I could register the issue without any issues. Microsoft mailed me an UPS label for the box and within a few days I got a mail with a trackingcode that a similar device was heading my way.

My SP3 was over 1,5 year old and like a lot of overheating sp3’s equiped with an i7 cpu.

Windows Store

Having a lot of applications in the store, made it easy for me to get back to work fast. Open live writer is now a store app too so that is nice! The only applications I had to download outside the store were:

  • Visual Studio
  • FileZilla
  • Skype (I know there is a preview uwp app in the anniversary update…)
  • Sql Server Management Studio
  • Office 365
  • Notepad++
  • Adobe cloud (and Photoshop)
  • Chrome
  • Firefox (and mozbackup)
  • Github for Windows
  • TeamViewer
  • Snip (office mix)

 

It would save me even more time if those were in the store. And if Visual Studio had some kind of installed extension restore option.

So I was supprised how fast and good the service for the surface is and how fast people can get back to work with all the latest software on Windows 10. Could be even faster if I would do a system restore. But I wanted a clean install with all the legacy sql, mvc, azure installers etc. Maybe it will be even faster in the future with using chocolatey or oneget and restore settings stored in the cloud (onedrive)

 

I hope this will cheer up people who have Surface heating issues. I was only a week without the surface.

Good luck!
