Why does ETW EventWriteString have binary payload and can not be printed as message

Q: Why does ETW EventWriteString have binary payload and can not be printed as message

I wanted to extend my Eventlog (Event Trace for Windows) by an additional component where I just want to log strings. I am using code like the following one.
#include <Evntprov.h>
#include <evntrace.h>
#include <minwindef.h>

// {38F4122A-4D8C-465A-9EFC-F7E632A84ABF}
static const GUID MyApplicationGuid = { 0x38f4122a, 0x4d8c, 0x465a, { 0x9e, 0xfc, 0xf7, 0xe6, 0x32, 0xa8, 0x4a, 0xbf } };

REGHANDLE regHandle = nullptr;
EventRegister(MyApplicationGuid, nil, nil, &regHandle);

EventWriteString(regHandle, TRACE_LEVEL_INFORMATION, 0x0, L"Hello");
EventWriteString(regHandle, TRACE_LEVEL_INFORMATION, 0x0, L", ");
EventWriteString(regHandle, TRACE_LEVEL_INFORMATION, 0x0, L"world");
EventWriteString(regHandle, TRACE_LEVEL_INFORMATION, 0x0, L"!");


I already have registered a provider with the given guid that shows up correctly and those events are part of the etl logfiles as generic events. To this point everything seems to be fine but when I want to add the message as a column I am not capable to
see the logged strings because they are stored in a binary payload element.
Is there a way to define an event/template to format the traces done with EventWriteString into a message string. Something like "%1"? (There is already a Header Flag STRING_ONLY set.)

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

A:Record keeping of the printed records & warning user when printed more than one time

could't you just add a field in the record for printed?

Then if printeed true, show warning, else show printable form.

I have been bombarded this past week with dozens of virus alerts from my NAV program. The alert is always the same. "Norton AntiVirus has detected and removed a virus from your computer."
Object Name: D:\payload.dat
Virus Name : Backdoor.Trojan
Action Taken: The file was automatically deleted
I don't know too much about viruses or Trojans; but I do a live up-date of NAV weekly and I do have a trojan remover program installed (Pest Patrol). Both programs tell me that my computer is free of viruses and trojans.
Would anyone know just what is happening here....other than NAV is just doing its job. ??? Just what is Payload.dat and should I be concerned with the frequency of these alerts ??? I've had this computer for a year and have had no alerts until this week. Now it's 1 every 15 Mins. when I use it. Do I just have to sit here and put up with these alerts or is there something I should be doing about it ??? Sorry if I sound so dumb.....but i just don't know enough about these things. Thanks in advance for any help......Joe

What is the size of the header and what is the size of the payload in an IP packet?

In reference to my query I am quoting a few lines from an article “Measuring network throughput” on Wikipedia.

“People are often concerned about measuring the maximum data throughput rate of a communications link or network access. A typical method of performing a measurement is to transfer a 'large' file and measure the time taken to do so. The throughput is then calculated by dividing the file size by the time to get the throughput in megabits, kilobits, or bits per second.

Unfortunately, the results of such an exercise will result in the goodput which is less than the maximum throughput, leading to people believing that their communications link is not operating correctly. In fact, there are many overheads in transmission that mean the calculated goodput does not reflect the maximum throughput.” []
Thanks in advance

I've got to do some stuff with binary trees and binary search trees, but I'm having difficulty with it and was wondering if there might be some people here who could offer me help.

1) What's the difference between a binary tree and a binary search tree?

2) If I have a set of integers, say x = [5, 7, 12, 2, 4, 18, 9, 10, 1] and I have to put these into a binary tree, how do I decide where each integer goes, ie how do I decide what is the root, what are its children etc.

3) Same as above for a binary search tree. Are there any differences?

First off, this is technically a repost. I am reposting after following the instructions here Windows Update Posting Instructions

I cannot install windows service pack 1. I attached my error code screenshot. I created a but it was too large to attach (more on that below). After troubleshooting windows update, I completed the following steps:

1. System Update Readiness Tool
I downloaded and installed/ran the appropriate SURT for my system and let it complete.

2. SFC Scan
I opened an elevated command prompt and entered the sfc /scannow command. After it completed, it stated 'Windows found no integrity violations'

3. Windows Update Error Codes
After completing the two above steps, I attempted to install SP1 again. The error code I get is 80073712 as seen in the attached screenshot.

4. Log Collection
I copied the CBS folder from C:\Windows\Logs to my desktop then sent it to a compressed zip folder. When I checked the CheckSUR text, it said I had several CSI payload files missing. From other threads, it seems that I need to obtain these files somehow. I'm not sure what steps to take after this.

My compressed zip CBS folder is too big to attach, approximately 15MB and the limit is 8MB. Is there another way I can upload it here that is acceptable? I also cannot for the life of me locate my original disc to do a repair install. Thanks for any help!

A:Can't install SP1, CSI payload files missing

remove the older CBSPersist files from the archive until the compressed size is under the 8MB limit, then upload the file.

Hello, I'm new to this forum.
My issue is very similar to this thread: Issues installing Win 7 SP1, CSI payload files missing

I've been having trouble installing windows service pack 1 for a while now. I've tried several things including the sfc /scannow command (no integrity violations found) and the system update readiness tool which installed and ran but I still could not install SP1.

I checked the CheckSUR text file which I will paste below (sorry for the wall of text let me know if there are better ways for me to post it). It seems I am missing several CSI payload files. There are also text files called CheckSUR.persist and CBS that say similar things, but I am only pasting from CheckSUR. I am sorry I am not too familiar with them. I need help obtaining the files and am not sure what to do once I get them. I tried to follow along very closely to what was said in the thread above. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Within the last 48 hours, I have received link only email messages from two seperate clients that link to (domains removed so no one here clicks into what I presume is a site with a virus downloader) "/cms/modules/Search/tubyus.htm" and "/blog/wp-content/themes/tubyus.htm". A quick search of "tubyus.htm" on Google returns scores of pages ending with both of the previously listed paths attached to multitudes of random domains; yet I have been unable to find any results that link it to virus discussion or AV virus database results.

I thought I should post here because since these only came in (to me) within the last two days, and since most of the Google results (that have associated dates) have only populated since 07/14/2011, I think we may have a new virus with a payload that drops "randomdomain/blog/wp-content/themes/tubyus.htm" or a varient thereof to an infected user's entire contact list.

I will not be contacting either of these people today until much later this evening because it is my wife's birthday and I am taking her and my daughter to a waterpark to celebrate However, if I get back early enough and can get ahold of either of them I will connect remotely and run mbam, DDS, and GMER and see if I can identify what virus is dumping this payload into their email and post the results here.

Some time ago, Noel had a remarkable record for finding missing files. I wonder if he could do it again.
I have inherited this machine from a recently deceased friend. I think it came with Vista, and he installed Win 7 a long time ago. I'd like to keep it, but it needs SP1 to be eligible for Win 10, and that installation fails for lack of several files. Here's the list from CheckSUR.log:

I have eleven CSI payload files missing, and NoelDP, I see you have been able to help a lot of people find these files and re-install them on their system. I have attached a copy of CheckSUR.log, as well as a CBS.log from a SFC scan I ran today.

If you could help me find these files that would be amazing, so that I can finally install Windows 7 SP1!

Avira removed it. Last time I was infected, Avira's removal was complete.

For one, Windows Firewall has been re-activated, seemingly by itself, and Event Viewer's logs appear to indicate that it has been tampered with. This did NOT happen last time I was infected with this virus. EDIT: I've gone back through and it seems the firewall was probably re-enabled when I did my last set of Windows updates.

I am at a lost. I've been avoiding updating the SP1 for months. Today, I finally decided to figure out the issue. I have run the Update Troubleshooter. The Readiness tool and checksur.

I'm getting the error code: 80073712
I found out that means the Component Store is corrupt.

Here is the CBS file:

I am lost as to how to find those files and how to fix the corruption. My Windows 7 was installed when I purchased the laptop. I'm sure I have a backup disk somewhere, but I would have to find it. I would prefer not to have to install or reinstall if it is possible to fix it.

Q: Binary

I am not sure if i put this in the right catagory, i apologize, if it is incorrect.

I understand that binary is an 8 digit system. It uses "switches' of 1 and 0s. When you have 8 of these switches, or bits, u get a byte. A single letter, number, symbol, or etc is a byte. I understand that fine, correct me if i am wrong in any of my explaination.

My question is this, how can i find what a byte is? In better words, if i have 8 bits, how can i tell what letter, number or symbol it is?

Thank you for your time,

I really have to finish my computer assignment and I am confused at few questions.

1) Say Computer A has a 1GHz processor and 16-but word size. Computer B has a 2GHz processor and 32-bit word size. Compare the processing speeds of these computers quantitatively. Show calculations.

2) Conversion from true-color graphic to black and white. Explain what the conversion did in terms of pixel bytes or bits.

3) If you run the CPU simulator program, you will find that it uses the system bus 12 times. Explain how this number comes about. (You must explain why based on how cpu operates. This will involve a little arithmetic. Show all).

The last questions I believe uses the concept of

1) Fetch
2) Decode
3) Execute
4) Store.

A lot of the stuff in this forum goes beyond my comprehension. However, I'm trying to learn as much as I can. Right now, I'm dealing with the "" problem that a few others have had. Didn't find much when I searched for it, though. Anyway, I have no idea where to find the problem or how to go about resolving it. My computer will occasionally go to 100% CPU usage and start lagging out. I don't see anything suspicious in my HJT log. I tried the StartDreck, too. I'll paste them both in here and see if anyone can find a problem. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Binary search Help

I should have started with this thread.
I've posted a link for an example to your thread (there's no need to duplicate thread for the same problem).
I've adapted the coding of the example this way :

public class BinarySearch
public static final int NOT_FOUND = -1;

public static int binarySearch( int[ ] a, int x )
int low = 0;
int high = a.length - 1;
int mid;
while( low <= high )
mid = ( low + high ) / 2;
if( a[ mid ] < x )
low = mid + 1;
else if( a[ mid ] > x )
high = mid - 1;
return mid;
return NOT_FOUND; // NOT_FOUND = -1

public static void main( String [ ] args )
int SIZE = 8;
int MAX = 16;
int [ ] a = new int [ SIZE ];
Random generator = new Random();
for( int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++ )
a[ i ] = generator.nextInt(MAX);
[COLOR=Red]Arrays.sort(a);[/COLOR] // Edit : to sort the array (see artur02's remark)

for( int i = 0; i < SIZE * 2; i++ )
if (binarySearch(a,i) != NOT_FOUND) {
System.out.println("Number " + i + " has been found");

Can someone help me come up with an algorithm in which I could count the number of 1's in the binary representation of an integer?

Thank you for any help

A:[ASSEMBLY] 1's in binary representation

Can you tell me more about how the problem is defined with respect to negative values and what you want to know?
Do you want the sign extends or just one of the bits?
Is there a restriction to two's complement representation?
For example here's both pos and neg 32 (using a 32 bit int)

32 ==> 00000000 00000000 00000000 00100000
-32 ==> 11111111 11111111 11111111 11100000
The obvious and straightforward method for a positive int or a dword etc. could look like:

#include <stdio.h>
#define numIntbits 32

int main() {
int i;
unsigned int numbits;
int testInt = 32;

for (i=0,numbits = 0;i<numIntbits;i++) numbits += (testInt >> i) & 1;
printf("%i\n", numbits);
return 0;

I can't recall when it started, on what day, but it's become worse as I downloaded more files and/or installed programs. I'm thinking the file screw-up started over two weeks ago. I was in need of a rare cam driver, so I downloaded it. Now there was a particular webcam driver software approximately 6 or 8 months ago (vimicro) that, upon initial installation, prompted AVG Free to alert me of a virus, can't remember what the message AVG listed. But even after that, I simply deleted the program, ran a full scan, and everything was fine.

Almost every program download only gives a partial file and/or binary file.

Wait, something else: Ya know, I do believe I know what program first started this all: Adobe download Manager; that's the one. It would d/l only a partial file. Then I ran the update again and it installed just fine I think.

I have win7 64 bit and use a currency trading platform that relies on Java. I have been running it quite happily for several months but now find that the platform freezes when I ask it to work a little harder. I have to close it via Task Manager and that is when I get the warning that Java is not responsive.

There have been numerous emails between me and the broker but it is clear they have no idea what is causing the problem.

To date, I have tried the following remedies:
Removed all Java files and reinstalled.
Tried Java 64 bit alone, tried it with 32 bit in tandem, and tried 32 bit alone.
Tried a previous version of Java recommended by my broker.
Tried starting via Chrome and IE.
Sent copies of Java console logs to the broker (the Java console freezes simultaneously with the platform so I can only send a screen print showing the latest info).
Run CC Cleaner, Malwarebytes and Superantispyware.
Reinstalled the platform data.

Basically, I've tried numerous permutations, including removing everything relating to the problem, cleaning up, and reinstalling.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

You can add Process Explorer to your list of tools that check for malware.

You might try Process Monitor to see if you can find the cause of the freeze.

Assumes all telephone numbers are exactly 8 digits (for simplicity). Given a data file containing a list of telephone numbers with corresponding words, i want to write a program that enable a user to type in one or more 8-digit telephone numbers and retrieve and display the corresponding words.

This program should read in the data file of telephone numbers and associated words (which is ordered on telephone number) and store in a vector of structs (called numwordList).

When the user enters a 8-digit telephone number, the program should perform a binary search of the vector for the entered telephone number and display the associated words (if they exist). The words were generated using the International Standard Keypad.

Sample output which it is going to be like:

Welcome to Telephone Word Finder
Please enter name of data file : data.txt

1. Enter a telephone number
2. Quit

What would you like to do? 1

Enter 8-digit Telephone Number (without spaces) :

Words are cachemic,cachemia

1. Enter a telephone number
2. Quit

What would you like to do? 2

A definition file telephone.h is attached in the attachment and a sample data file is on attachment as data.txt as well. There should be 2 file which one to be name as telephone.cpp as the implementation file and another would be telewords.cpp as the main program. I am currently stuck at binary search function and also the structs part as I haven't learn enough for that. Any kind of help ... Read more

Hey all,

I am struggling with figuring out the source code on how to convert binary to decimal.

I know that you need to take each digit in the binary number and raise it to the base and power of however many digits there are, like so...

1011 = 1x 2^3 + 0x 2^2 + 1x 2^1 + 1x 2^0 ... which would give the decimal number of 1011.

Could someone please help me figure out how to get this to work in C?

Thank you all in advance...

i am using vb (or vba) to read files (c-isam) containing binary data.
Some bytes have the binary value "00", so the string functions in vb doesn't work very well.

i am looking for a 'vb' function to convert the data that i have read into a string with the hexadecimal presentation of the value. Just in the same way of that i can see the data with a hexeditor like hexedit or ultraedit.

ex : if the string contains the value : "AaB" the result must be "416142"

but if the second byte of the string contains the binary value 0 then
the result must be "410042"

I need also a function to convert the hexadecimal value back to the binary value

The problem I am having is that when I go to print tax return forms from the IRS site or New York Tax Dept site, the form prints "short", that is, the last four or five lines of each page do not print.

You cannot save the data in these forms, they will only save as a blank form. Your only option is to print it.

However, although Adobe tells how to cure this problem ( by clicking File-Print and going down the menu which comes up to "printer scaling", then chosing "print to fit page", this only works if there is a
FILE menu on the left hand side of the page.

In these tax sites, the forms do not have a tool bar above allowing you to chose a FILE menu.
You can right click the mouse and chose PRINT, however it will print a cut off page.

SOOOOOOO do I either:
1. Get a standard Tool Bar to appear on top of the form, on these web site pages, or
2. use some other device or method to print these documents to fit the page.

If any of you are about to suggest right clicking on the printer icon PRINTERS, in the control panel, forget printer does not bring up anything about "Print Scaling".

Hopefully, some geek out there will read this and solve my problem. Thank you. 44 Guy

Every computerized tax form that I have available at the website of the sponsoring governmental agency...and reflects a printed version option which has resulted in everything being printed properly.

Don't print much multi page output, so am NOT sure when this problem began.

Originally, the pages on my HP DJ855C were printed as expected: page-1 first, then page-2, etc; this resulted with page-1 being on the bottom of the stack. Depending on the application being used, there was often a Print-Order option available for Back-to-Front printing so that the last page would be printed first and then page-1 would be printed last and be on the top in the stacker.

NOW, things seem to have reversed:
If I do NOT ask for the Back-to-Front, then I seem to get it anyway (i.e., page-1 last and on the top). but if I want the original order (i.e., page-1 first and on the bottom) then I must use the Back-to-Front option.
It seems as though the default has become Back-to-Front and then selecting the option for Back-to-Front re-reverses the order and the result is Front-to-Back.

Possibly this reversal happened when I went to Win/XP; possibly it happened with the installation of some piece of software.

Q. Has anyone else had this exxperience?

Please tell me where I might change some parameter to make the option of Front-to-Back actually print the page-1 first like it did originally?

Any advice apprecaited.


A:Order of Pages Printed


Go into your printers and faxes options off of your start menu.

Select your printer, right click the mouse and click on printing preferences.
On the features tab at the bottom there is a option for start printing from last page. If there is a check mark in the box next to it, click there with the mouse and uncheck it and then click on apply and ok and you should be all set after that?

Other than dogging the print preview, and struggling with the size in any pertinent image editing software, has anyone found a reliable way to limit or control the size of a printed web document?
to wit:
I scanned an odd shaped document, 3x8" to email to myself at another site, and the printed form was big enough for two pages. What a waste.
I print receipts regularly and they, 99% of the time have a "trailer" on a last page that has stuff like web site address or URL, a Secure Website emblem, or other, clearly unnecessary printing. My introduction to Windows word processing (WordPerfect) had, and I still use, a "makeitfit" command. Invoking such a command AUTOMATICALLY when printing from the web seems like a simple, brainless way to conserve'll give me a fractional font (e.g. 11.9 vs. a 12) and would prevent the idiotic tendency of a printed page to only have the leftward 80%, l which leaves off the important stuff like the prices...(you gotta print landscape to avoid this)
And I thought a computer was to make life easier, boy was I ever misled)

A:printed size of web documents

The problem is that web pages are usually coded to make them look good on screen, and that tends to make them "unfriendly" when printing.

Web pages designed for printing do exist, and it works well in those (few) cases.

Cutting and pasting into a word processor is sometimes the only workable solution.

After reviewing the properties, somehow it downloaded 32 bit pieces instead of 64. I don't know if that is a problem, but wanted to throw it out there.

So then I noticed that my Samsung Monitor was not displayed as the "Display" (instead, it read "Generic PnP Monitor"). I went to their website and downloaded the driver for that too, but I can't FIND it either.

Hi, I received a stmt file from a bank. The file name says "statement.pdf" but the type of file says "binary file". When I click on the "file name" it opens up into a word document window with a "File Conversion" popup that says "select the encoding that makes your document readable" & under that are three buttons: Windows (default); MS-DOS; Other encoding. Since I don't know what that means, I tried again to open the file by clicking on the button that says "open" or "save" & the same thing happens.

The bank says they produce the document, save it in .pdf format & then send it. But when it arrives, it shows up as a "binary file".

I'm not that computer savy so not only do I need assistance on how to open a document from a binary file into the requested format (pdf or tiff), but because I've seen this term before, I also would like to understand a binary file - in simple terms (if that's possible)

I have Windows XP Home Edition


A:[SOLVED] what is a binary file &amp; how do I open it?

In the simplest terms, a binary file is a file that is made up of entirely 1's and 0's (binary code) and it represents what information that the computer will read.

It sounds like you don't have the program needed to open a PDF. I don't know if you are familiar with them, but PDF stands for Portable Document Format, and it's just a simple way for people to send documents that aren't meant to be edited. Adobe Acrobat is needed to read PDF files. If you don't have it, your computer won't recognize what type of file a PDF is, so it will default to a binary file. Follow the link below to download and install Adobe Acrobat for free. Hope this fixes it!

hey guys, Ive posted this in a couple Alienware specific forums but no one seems to know, so I thought I'd give here a try. But if no one really knows its completely understandable because this isn't an Alienware forum. ANYWAYS

whenever I use battery power, i know the best ways to conserve the battery are to switch to Power Saver mode in control panel, use Stealth Mode (alienware thing that cuts clock speeds in half), and switch to Binary (integrated) graphics. The problem I have is... whenever I try to switch to binary graphics, it just simply does not do anything. I've called Alienware and they said the only possible way to switch to binary graphics is to press the FN key + F7. But whenever i press FN + F7, nothing happens. Ill hold it down for a few seconds, nothing happens. I decided to download the Intel Graphics Driver from the Alienware support website and it wouldn't install because it said "your computer does not meet the minimum requirements to install this update". Alienware could not give me an answer. Anyone here have any idea what to do?

I've recently come across a problem when using Internet Explorer while running under Vista.

I wanted to download Adobe Flash Player 10 from their site, but whenever I click on the link, instead of getting the Install/Don't Install prompt for the ActiveX plug-in, all I get is a window asking if I want to save the file, and it is listed as a Binary file.

Attached is an image of the download window.

Now, this woudn't be a problem, as I could just run it as normal after downloading it, but when I click Save File, it downloads it, and then the file disappears. I can't find it anywhere!

So, my problem is, how can I get the Save File prompt to stop showing up, or if I do have to save it, how can I choose where it goes to?

Really, I've tried this on all different sites, and anything I try to download looks like this.

A:Vista saves downloads as binary :(

Click on tools and options and in the main area look in the downloads and look where the save path is directed too. Also it will show up as an exe file.
