Invalid Compressed Data To Inflate

www.vbforums.com

I am a fairly new VB Programmer, so I apologize upfront for any confusion in the way I might describe my problem. My VB 6.0 program uses CDO.Configuration and CDO.Message to send an e-mails automatically with zipped attachments. I have done this to bypass the security prompts in VB programs using Outlook that started happening when we got Microsoft XP. The files that get e-mailed are saved on my C drive and I am able to open them with no problem. But when the file is sent through Outlook 2002 I cannot open the attachments. (This used to work fine). This is the message I receive when I try to open CUSTLIST.PDFExtracting to “C:Documents and SettingsNAMELocal SettingsTemp”Use Path: no Overlay Files: yesWarning [C:Documents and SettingsNAMELocal SettingsTemporary Internet FilesOLK6Reports122004.Error in file #1: bad Zip file offset (Error local header signature not found): 0(attempting to re-compensate)Extracting CUSTLIST.PDFError: invalid compressed data to inflateI beleive it is related to the new security in Outlook 2002, but have no idea how to make it work. Any ideas? Thank-you for any help on this!

Android :: How To Compress Data To Obtain Same Value In Python? stackoverflow.com

I am porting a Python application to Android and, at some point, this application has to communicate with a Web Service, sending it compressed data. In order to do that it uses the next method: def stuff(self, data): "Convert into UTF-8 and compress." return zlib.compress(simplejson.dumps(data)) I am using the next method to try to emulate this behavior in Android: private String compressString(String stringToCompress) { Log.i(TAG, "Compressing String " + stringToCompress); byte[] input = stringToCompress.getBytes(); // Create the compressor with highest level of compression Deflater compressor = new Deflater(); //compressor.setLevel(Deflater.BEST_COMPRESSION); // Give the compressor the data to compress compressor.setInput(input); compressor.finish(); // Create an expandable byte array to hold the compressed data. // You cannot use an array that's the same size as the orginal because // there is no guarantee that the compressed data will be smaller than // the uncompressed data. ByteArrayOutputStream bos = new ByteArrayOutputStream(input.length); // Compress the data byte[] buf = new byte[1024]; while (!compressor.finished()) { int count = compressor.deflate(buf); bos.write(buf, 0, count); } try { bos.close(); } catch (IOException e) { } // Get the compressed data byte[] compressedData = bos.toByteArray(); Log.i(TAG, "Finished to compress string " + stringToCompress); return new String(compressedData); } But the HTTP response from the server is not correct and I guess it is because the result of the compression in Java is not the same as the one in Python. I ran a little test compressing "a" both with zlib.compress and deflate. Python, zlib.compress() -> x%9CSJT%02%00%01M%00%A6 Android, Deflater.deflate -> H%EF%BF%BDK%04%00%00b%00b How should I compress the data in Android to obtain the same value of zlib.compress() in Python?

Android :: Switch To Landscape Then Back Portrait - Inflate Exception groups.google.com

I've met a very strange issue that my app will crash if user first switch to landscape, then back to portrait. I found that Activity.setContentView() will throw an inflate exception. It said: android.view.InflateException: Binary XML file line #29: Error inflating class <unknown> This crash will happens on Android 1.6/2.1/2.1-update1, but doesn't happen in 2.2 Froyo. In Froyo, everything works fine. If the XML I used is invalid, it should happens every time when I try to inflate. But why it's okay on the first time of running and switching to landscape? This also only happens on some devices. For example, there two HTC G1 with same software installed on it and has the same configuration, one has this issue and the other one works fine.

Android :: Unable To Add Subview To Linear Layout With Wrap Content stackoverflow.com

I'm using data to build elements of a ViewGroup. The ViewGroup are LinearLayouts, except the leaves, which are TextViews. Because Data draws the hierarchy, I inflate the LinearLayouts and TextViews from individual XML files programatically on the fly. My Problem: When I create a LinearLayout with the attribute wrap_content, then inflate a TextView or other LinearLayout into it, I can't get the parents (or enough of them, anyway) to redraw, respecting the new view. These LinearLayouts always seem to come out at 0 size, because when they are first created (before their children are inflated), they wrap around nothing. I've tried calling some stock methods of ViewGroup but nothing seems to work.

Split A File Over Multiple Disks www.vbforums.com

I created a backup wizard that takes a file (like a .mdb file), compress it with zlib and copy it to a disk.The problem is: The mdb file will not fit onto a single disk, not even when compressed (I guess that is what happens when you insert 50.000 records in it...).So I'd like to split the compressed file onto multiple disks, and also have a way to glue them all together again. But how do I split them and even harder, how do I glue them back together again so the compressed data will still be valid?Gerco.

Compressing Sql Server Data Across Vpn? social.msdn.microsoft.com

compressing sql server data (on the fly) from a select statement when accessed across the internet. i.e data is stored in Sql Server Express on a remote computer (1) connected via an Internet VPN. An application on a remote computer (2) on the same VPN sends a select statement to the SQL server machine.The data would then be compressed at computer (1) sent across the VPN and decompressed at computer (2) The Reason is, broadband speeds are not the greatest in Australia, and it would reduce the size of the data transmitted, resulting in faster response, as the compression/decompression is done at each machine
