Various Contributions
Answer questions regularly to help the community of software developers.

An Auto Update Mechanism in c++

Code Project
Many software developers need to update their software and apply such update to all current users. This article provides a method we developed which allows a fully transparant automatic updates with no action needed from the user (such as start the new version, etc.). It is also unique because it doesn't reuqire any server side code.

Creating a .Cab archive

Code Project
Microsoft requires Drivers developers who wish to qualify them for Windows 10, to pack the drivers files into a single cab and code sign it. I was looking for a way to do so programmatically. I found the MakeCab tool but from first look, it allows passing one parameter for the file, so I was looking for the easiest way to pack several files.

Tiny Obfuscate

Code Project
The purpose of obfuscators in general is to hide program code, flow, and functionality. If your program uses an algorithm that is a trade secret, obfuscation will make it harder to reverse engineer it and reveal this trade secret. Some time you need encrypt/obfuscate strings in your program and don't want to bother using expensive and complex obfuscation tools.

Date time batch changer for photos and other files

Code Project
I recently looked for photos and videos of an important event and couldn't understand why I can't find any video files, even though I recalled that my wife and my daughter took both photos and videos..

Integrating with Paypal Smoothly

Code Project
This article was written following a need to integrate PayPal Express Checkout in a c++ Win32 application.

Finding Skype's Default Account Name

Code Project
The purpose of this article is to show you how to find the default Skype's account name.

Integrating with Google Maps via a Desktop Application

Code Project
A while ago we were asked to create a small Desktop application that will go over photos and extract any Meta Data from them, including the location where each photo was taken (which is a topic for a separate article),. To display the result, I looked for a way to display a map, powered by Google Maps, in an MFC application. Here is the solution I have found.

Creating a Console Based Window for Debugging

Code Project
The purpose of this article is to explain how to build a centralized function for logging and how to display log entries in real time using a Console window which can be opened throughout the run time of the application, regardless of its type (Win32, MFC, etc.).

How to Embed Resources in a Static Library

Code Project
It started with a need to release a Static library as a product and include some resources in it. That is usually impossible since a program that uses such Static library will use its own resources. I posted a question (which I answered after finding this solution). I realized that this solution deserves an article with source code. I have also posted a question about that possibility in Stack Overflow.

Adding an InputBox to Any C++ Program

Code Project
There are several building blocks in programming that are available in most of the languages and make life easy. For example, the ability to pop up a message. In Win32, that would be MessageBox(). Another building block is Inputbox. InputBox() is a very handy command for prompting the user for an input.

A Google Docs Based Backup Application

Code Project
I wanted to write a small application which allows dragging and dropping multiple files and folders into a container in order to send them to an online storage. This article was written before Google introduced Google Drive, but it is still practical to use it for quick upload of multiple files to your Google Drive.

The secrets of Wi-Fi Credentials

Pentest Magazine This article covers and teaches the following issues: • Personal information – how and why is it stored and how can anyone fetch it. To do so, two examples are provided: - Wi-Fi credentials - Skype account information

Fetching Alexa's Recordings Using Python

Pentest Magazine Filing a formal request to Amazon led to an email "approving" my request, however, none of my recordings were including in the data. After inquiring with customer service, I was told that one can only hear or delete his/her recordings but there is no option to download them.
