I don’t know how many times I’ve heard of this issue, but it never happened to me…until recently, that is. What a bummer! I was trying to get into the Admin interface of our QC app when I received it. I tried a lot of different things…unregistering/re-reg... the DLL, rebooting, etc. I tried a lot of the solutions online involving checking permissions on the file, my rights, etc. Finally, I looked at the problem from a different direction.

Whew! Finally!
Well, we finally did it. We got the project that has literally sapped the very life from me (ok, maybe not literally) is reached its first milestone, and we released over the weekend. I actually got a day off after three weeks of 80+ hours. How blissful. <sigh> Unfortunately, the project came in on a wing and a prayer. Just some interesting statistics: We have over 1100 features.
