A Test Post to check the new version of JetPack
When installing a separate 32 bit web application in a SharePoint 2013 Farm the new application might fail to load and give a general 503 Service Unavailable error message. When looking in IIS manager, the Application Pool for the new app would be in the stopped state.
The following error messages might be visible in the Event log…
For the new 32 bit web application
Event ID 5002 – Error <date and time> WAS 5002 None
Application pool ‘<App Pool Name>’ is being automatically disabled due to a series of failures in the process(es) serving that application pool.
Event ID 5139 – Warning <date and time> WAS 5139 None
A listener channel for protocol ‘http’ in worker process ‘<process number>’ serving application pool ‘<App Pool Name>’ reported a listener channel failure. The data field contains the error number.
For SharePoint 2013
Event ID 2282 – Error <date and time> IIS-W3SVC-WP 2282 None
The Module DLL ‘C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\isapi\spnativerequestmodule.dll’ could not be loaded due to a configuration problem. The current configuration only supports loading images built for a x86 processor architecture. The data field contains the error number. To learn more about this issue, including how to troubleshooting this kind of processor architecture mismatch error, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=29349.

Solution / work around
The solution to this issue is to enable 32 bit applications to be loaded together with SharePoint and ask the SharePoint Module to only load in 64 bit mode. This can be done by running the following command, located in the %WINDIR%\System32\inetsrv\ folder:
appcmd.exe set config -section:system.webServer/globalModules /[name=’SPNativeRequestModule’].preCondition:integratedMode,bitness64

Hat Tip to my colleague Markus Lind for pointing this out.
This web part for SharePoint provides the possibility to visualize both the current status of a SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) cube or tabular model (BISM) and some of its metadata.
This web part can be used in BI portal type pages in SharePoint to show the current status of a cube used for reports and analysis. This means that there is no need to guess the update status or last process time etc. of a cube.
Both the source code and a .wsp solution file for deployment are available for download from the project page: http://cubestatus.codeplex.com
This project is described in more detail here
Please, feel free to suggest updates and new features etc. either here on the blog or on CodePlex.
I have published an update to the Create Time Dimension Application for Excel that includes a new Date Integer Id column (in the format 20130616 for June 16, 2013) and Dutch language support.
The update is made on the server so it is available for everyone right away, no update needed on the Excel/Client side.

SharePoint features a very useful function that enables users to open a document library as if it is a normal folder inside File Explorer. This would give the user access to normal file operations such as copy, move etc.
Look and feel of Open with Explorer in SharePoint 2013 in English
Look and feel of Öppna med Utforskaren in SharePoint 2010 in Swedish
When using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 10 to open a document library the following error message appears and the library does not open in File Explorer:
We’re having a problem opening this location in File Explorer. Add this web site to your Trusted Sites list and try again.
A similar error message in Swedish:
Klienten har inte stöd för att öppna den här listan med Utforskaren.
Update: There is now a hotfix available at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2846960 that should solve the issue for Windows 7 and IE10.
Not really… At the moment this is a known issue with Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 7. The suggestion from Microsoft is to de-install IE10 and use an earlier version. Another option would be to upgrade to Windows 8. Unfortunately my current PC (HP EliteBook 8540w) does not support Windows 8, and Internet Explorer 9 isn’t really an option anymore.

This is posted as a follow up to my post on how to get explorer view to work in SharePoint 2010: http://www.stefanjohansson.org/2012/01/how-to-get-explorer-view-to-work-in-sharepoint-2010/ – obviously this won’t cut it in the above scenario.
