Issue:The procedure entry point sqlite3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamic link library SQLite3.dll.

Description: For Iphone, ipod, ipad you install some applications for internet, data-sharing, video chat, songs sync, or any kind of sync.

all these application depends on itunes in some or other way. when those required files are not located to access iTunes etc. these kind of issue occurs.

in my case it was issue with PdaNet, it is used to access iPhone internet plan on laptop/desktop. very good app indeed.


1) Ensure Itunes is installed
2) iTunes releated services are running
3) go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and check for "sqlite3.dll ", if its there rename it.
4) go to C:\Windows\System32 and check for "sqlite3.dll ", if its there rename it.

Now check you application which was throwing this particular error. it should work.
after that check all application you have installed for IOS devices. make sure every app is working fine.

Let me know via commenting if this work or not, or anybody has resolved it using alternate method.
Do Share it on G+ and facebook.

How to search Active directory for email and name of current NT user

You can search for your organisation's Active directory for particular user's email-id, first name, last name and many other vital information using LDAP.

what you need
1) LDAP Address
2) Any valid active directory credentials (e.g yours own)

No need to install any third party software etc.

Code snippet:-

var userWithoutDomainName = "skumar"

var entry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://DC=company, DC=com"/>, "username", "password");//username //is without domain
            var searcher = new DirectorySearcher{
                SearchRoot = entry,
                Filter = "(SAMAccountName=" +userWithoutDomainName + ")" };
            searcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("Mail"); //email-id
            searcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("givenName");//first name
            searcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("sn"); //Last name
            return searcher.FindOne(); //.FindAll() is also available, for example if you searching with name only //and there are chances of more than one user

in this way you can search the users from active directory, there are others properties are available to search for, you can google for it, if not found comment below, i will help.

Write server side asp .net code in tridion DWT

DWT has its own language, but sometime we need server side Tags in dwt tbb.

Example: Suppose you have some string and you want to format it, or want to do some operation on data which is not possible in DWT. you can use following code.

<% if(condtion) {%>

<%="@@CAR@@".Replace("INR","Indian Rupee") %>
<% }%>

Keep in mind. DWT will no execute the .net code snippet, it will be rendered as its on .aspx page.

when this page is requested through browser then this code snippet executes.
& format or replace the strings etc.

if you have any question, just comment. i will try to reply ASAP
