Visual Studio and Windows 10 Emulator

While trying to run an Windows Universal App on a Windows 10 Emulator I got this error message:
Microsoft Synthetic 3D Display Controller: Failed to Power on with Error 'Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.' (0x800705AA).

Quick Solution:

  • Open the Hpyer-V Manager
  • Delete the virtual machine which will cause the error. VS will recreate it when needed
  • Open Hyper-V settings
  • Disabled the RemoteFX support for any GPU

Now it should work.

Typo3 and conditional TypoScript includes

Since a long time it’s possible to split your TypoScripts into external files and include them from your template via
<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE: fileadmin/fileToInclude.ts">
So it’s very easy to use your favorite editor and, more important, organize the TypoScript-Files into smaller, reusable chunks.

My common setup is something like that:
<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE: fileadmin/tpl/include.ts">

<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:fileadmin/tpl/ts/site.ts">
<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:fileadmin/tpl/ts/defaults.ts">
<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:fileadmin/tpl/ts/header.ts">
<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:fileadmin/tpl/ts/menu.ts">
<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:fileadmin/tpl/ts/plugin_news.ts">
<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:fileadmin/tpl/ts/plugin_facebook.ts">

But there is one large downside. Every include adds an [GLOBAL] at the end of file. So it’s not possible to include files based on a multi level condition. For example if you like to develop a new design and want to test it on a test domain. For more information see

But since Typo3 7.6 there is something which can help. Continue reading »

Typo3 – Easy upgrade of pibase extension to TYPO3 6.2 or 7.6

After upgrading a Typo3 4.5 Installation to Version 6.2 your old pibase extension may still running. Hmm .. at least mostly 🙂
You just need to remove some requice_once statements and modify the ext_table.php to use the \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility class. Most of the other stuff is still there.
Once when you try to upgrade to version 7.6 you are in need to modify a bit more. But don’t worry. After all it isn’t that complicated. And by the way … you don’t need to wait until you upgrade. These changes are running very well even in an 6.2 installation.
So here is a small list of needed action to upgrade from 4.5 via 6.2 to 7.6 🙂

Typo3: Backend Search

After you upgraded from a Typo3 Version 4.5 LTS to Version 6.2 or higher you may wounder why the backend search is not working anymore as expected. Even in the list mode the result of extension records can be empty.
If it’s your own extension you can fix it very easy. Since Version 4.6 the search behavior was changed (see
To re-enable the search function of your own extension records to have to add this line to your ext_table.php:

$TCA['name_of_table']['ctrl']['searchFields'] = 'col1, col2, col3';

Just include all columns which make sense. Clear the system cache and it’s done. Of course you need to do this for every table which you wanted to be searched 🙂

Plesk centos update to mysql 5.6 oder higher

If you like to upgrade your mysql installation to a newer version you may try this:

First of all we need to add a repo with contains the new mysql version. I’ve chose the one of the IUS Community

Then we need to check what currently is installed:
# rpm -qa | grep mysql

We need to remove the old stuff. Be sure to select only the parts we can really get rid off 🙂 Never every remove the one which starts with plesk-mysql-server !

rpm -e --nodeps mysql-server-5.5.48-1.el6.remi.x86_64 mysql-libs-5.5.48-1.el6.remi.x86_64 mysql-5.5.48-1.el6.remi.x86_64 compat-mysql51-5.1.54-1.el6.remi.x86_64 compat-mysql51-5.1.54-1.el6.remi.x86_64

Now install the new one. In my case I want mysql 5.7:
yum install mysql57u-server.x86_64 mysql57u.x86_64

Since the databases are in the old format we need to upgrade them to work with the new server version:
mysql_upgrade -u admin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow`

This may take a while. After that you should restart the mysql server.

If you every modified /etc/my.cnf you may should have a look since it may reset to the defaults. But don’t worry. The original one should be saved to my.cnf.rpmsave (or something similar).

That’s it!

Mouse movement awakes Windows from hibernate mode

I really like to you the hibernate mode of Windows. And it’s working very fine. However I recently added a new mouse device. First it seems to work but when I accidentally moved my mouse while the PC was in hibernate the computer restarted! The quickest way to find out which device is able to awake the computer and disabled it is to use the command line:

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed Will list all devices which are allowed to wake up the computer.
powercfg -devicequery wake_programmable will list all disallowed devices.

Now you just have to pick the right one from the allowed list and disable it with this command
powercfg -devicedisablewake deviceNname

For what ever reason I had to disable all devices until the movement of my mouse didn’t wake up the PC any longer.

Typo3 Replace old getPageLink in an extbase controller

If you wounder how to create links in an extbase controller instead of using the old pi_getPageLink methode you should have a look at this:

    'tx_myext[param]'=>$model->getUid() ])

To get more information you may search for getUriBuilder

Typo3 Problems with image gm convert and umlauts

If you have a problem when uploading images with umlauts in the file name you first stop may will be to check the config.local_all setting. The setting should match some value of the locale -a command of the server. Mose of the time it’s something like en_US.uft8 or de_DE.utf8.
But if you still getting errors like

/usr/local/bin/gm convert: Unable to open file ([image file name]) [No such file or directory].

You should also set systemLocale of the Typo3 configuration. The most simple way to do this is to use the Installation Tool/All Configuration:

$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['SYS']['systemLocale'] = 'de_DE.utf-8';
