Well, not completely (unless you’re an unlucky sod like me), but makes it unusable. You now have to reopen each previously closed tab one-by-one. No more clicking on “21 closed tabs” to open up what you were working on previously. Unfortunately, the new menu item is greyed out completely for me and doesn’t show _any_ recently closed tabs.
Luckily, there’s a way to disable this new feature (along with the new big search box and not seeing Chrome Apps in the start window):
- Open a new tab, and enter chrome://flags .
- Search for Enable Instant Extended API for Mac, Windows, Chrome OS.
- Select Disabled from the dropdown.
- Restart Chrome.
I started up Cubase for the first time in a few weeks, and I immediately got an error from my Waves plug-ins stating that its licenses couldn’t be found. This obviously freaked me out; I started the Wave License Center, and noticed that it couldn’t identify my machine anymore, and all my old licenses were listed under View All Licenses under the real name of the computer.
Long story short, I’d installed Visual Studio 2013 Pro Preview and along with that the Windows Phone dev kit (Don’t get me started how bad an idea it is to have everything on one machine…). Anyway, Waves didn’t recognize the machine because the network traffic was going through the Hyper-V vEthernet (External Switch) adapter with a different MAC address.
- Start Hyper-V Manager.
- Click Virtual Switch Manager under the Actions pane.
- Select External Switch under the Virtual Switches pane/group.
- Select Internal Network, and then click OK.
- Close the Hyper-V Manager control panel.
- Open up your Network Connections control panel, and then disable vEthernet (External Switch) and vEthernet (Internal … Windows Phone Emulator…).
- Reboot (to be safe).
After a restart (and writing this post), I was good to go (but where’d my musical inspiration run off to in the meantime?)
I was having the rather irritating issue with my Surface Pro where I’d hop on the train for my morning or afternoon commute, and the screen wouldn’t rotate (change the orientation) when I was trying to read with my Kindle app. What made it frustrating was that it’d start working again when I arrived. I read the troubleshooting document and then contacted Microsoft support and they weren’t able to reproduce the issue. This morning, I finally figured out what was going on.
Had issues with XBox Live complaining about the MTU size not being sufficient. Well, that wasn’t actually the cause for me. In the end, I had to turn off uPnP on my Cisco RV082 firewall to get the network connection test to pass and to be able to sign into XBox Live.
If you get the error “Another program has already opened a LocalConnection with id ‘_flexcover’. No coverage data will be recorded.”, do the following:
- Open Task Manager and kill any instances of CoverageViewer.exe (or your Mac equivalent).
- Close all browsers.
- Close FlexBuilder.
- Close Yahoo! Messenger (or other client that hosts the Flash Player).
#3 did it for me.
I was using FlexCover 0.81.
