# Enable Bash in Windows 10 Creators update

Here are the 9 steps to enable the linux subsystem in the latest Windows 10 version:

1. Windows key + I (to go to settings)
2. Update Windows
3. Select developer menu on left hand side
4. Make sure that the developer mode is enabled
5. Go back to the main page of settings
6. On the right hand side click “programs and features”
7. Click on install additional features on the left hand side
8. Check the box for the linux subsystem
9. Double click on c:/windows/system32/bash.exe to install it

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

Good luck!

# OneDrive and Groove Sync error

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:

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 Even the new track is not an unknown one!

I hope this might help someone

# Use Apple USB to Ethernet adapter with Windows 10

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.

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

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

Good luck!

# My Surface Pro 3 is dead, long live the Surface Pro 3!

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
• 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!

# Manage users for webform auth missing option in Visual Studio

and then there was this stacktrace and error… I have not had this issue before. It was since the 4.6 framework was installed.

Thankfully I found this stackoverflow answer which resolves it:

in notepad++ and ctrl+g (go to) line 989 and give the string appId the value of “1” instead of the stringutil.blabla
StringUtil.GetNonRandomizedHashCode(String.Concat(appPath, appPhysPath)).ToString("x", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
