producer consumer semaphore

Q: producer consumer semaphore

Control two exclusively shared resources(semaphore). The two resources are two files. The producer will write even numbers to one file, and odd numbers to another one. The consumer respectively reads from each file until it gets 5 even numbers and 5 odd numbers.

Can any one help me with the code.

Thanks in advance.

What the heck is error 0x80070079 " Semaphore time out period has expired" ?
This happens to me when I try to send large files to my Buffalo network attached storage device. The other three PC's on my network do not have this issue ruling out the network and the NAS device. Also, sometimes after getting the above error Windows Explores stops working and restarts. My wireless network card also looses its connection to the wireless router when getting the above error. The other three computers on the network never loose connection with the router also ruling out the router.
Any suggestions?

my OEM machine?

Thanks Ted

Hi all, I originally posted this in the software forum, HERE
but I never got even one reply, so I figured I would try it here!

This is in C: Program Files.

Attachment 3249

It came installed on my OEM machine and I am trying to find
out if it is something I can delete from this entry? Seeing the MS
entries I want to make sure it is not something that can't be deleted.
I uninstalled it in Programs & Features but the entry won't be gone!
So I can remove the entry in CCleaner but that doesn't get rid of the
bits and pieces left behind that I am trying to clean up. Like this.

Can someone please help me figure this out???
Thank you very much!

Helloo, I have been trying to to get a published Microsoft Producer project to work on our web server. The Project runs fine off the local network but once we upload the files to our server, and then run the files off the server the files dont display probperly. The slide images are small and the video controls are not on the left, neither is the table of contents its just a big blank square, that seems to be the media player display. Does anyone know what the requirements are to run producer on a web server? It appears Microsoft doesn't have web server requirments on their site. It must be something the server requires that ares doesn't have because we used to run them on our old server and they ran fine. If any one know please let me know. Thanks

Good Morning All,
 
I am having issues installing Windows updates, they have been failing upon install for the past 3-4 months.  I get the error code 80070079, "The Semaphore timeout has expired".  So I tried backing up my data to just wipe it and reload the OS, the backup fails as well, same error message.  Then I tried moving files manually to an external drive and that as well timeouts on the larger files.  I have searched the Internet and it many people seem to have this issue and it relates to the network adapter, but I am not trying to do anything over the network (Updates are already downloaded just waiting to install), so I feel it is something else.  Does anyone know of a fix or possible solution?  I searched semaphore through the registry and there are a lot of entries, but not sure if i need to change any of them or not?
 
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I use Windows XP Pro and I am getting this error message in the system event log everytime I log in. Now I only get one, but just recently there are like 3 or 4 in a row many times during the initial log in to the internet network.

I have tried to search everywhere and google and yahoo for an answer but never was able to get a clear solution.

Luckily, I am able to get online just fine but the idea of this showing up constantly bothers me. It was fine, for about 4 months it stopped showing up after I did no changes to my system but its now back.

Also for a while I was getting something about user cancelled something but I have not seen that in a long time.

I tried to unplug the modem and cables to reset the IP , but that doesnt help. Also not that my service uses a Dynamic IP and I cant switch to static IP.

Hi everyone, I purchased this M-Audio Produce USB Microphone for my daughter for Christmas. I have come to try and install it and The drivers are not for windows 7 64bit. I have gone to their website and downloaded the right drivers. I now have the operating software installed and I tried to install the driver for the microphone itself and I get "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2753" and then installation stops. I ahve tried everything and nothing works.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks

A:M-Audio Producer USB Microphone

Hello there Kim, this is what i've found on M-Audio Forums






Quote:
Hi debian!

I got the same error. Some of the "old" driver files were not removed properly.

Here's what you do:

1. Uninstall the new beta driver
2. Remove all files that match: "delta*.*" in your c:\windows\system32 directory
3. Reinstall the new beta driver

You're ready to go! - hopefully...

Regards

Acoustics


Since this is the first time installing the drivers, you could skip step 1

and here's Another






Quote:
Disconnect the Producer and uninstall all M-Audio drivers. The 2753 may be caused by files from other M-Audio devices, so check C:\Windows\system32 to see if there are any M-Audio files; they may start with "ma", but make sure they are related to M-Audio, if you are unsure, don't delete it. Then try re-installing the drivers


The only part i don't like about these solutions is the fact that you have to mess inside the system32 folder! but that's the answer they gave to those users on the M-Audio Forum!

hello again...

dang this thing is a pain!!

new issue today, trying to save a tiny .rtf file to external USB drive, and get "semaphore timeout period has expired" message and have to save to local drive instead. also get the message if i drag and drop into the desired location.

perhaps related to the issue i occasionally have: the machine loses connection to the external drive and either the folder shows empty (it's not!) or doesn't show as even being connected. little blue light on the drive will sometimes go out, sometimes not, but still no access...

EDIT: i have two verbatim USB drive attached... one or the other of them will occasional disappear from This PC and when i look at device manager there is an error on that drive. i disconnect and reconnect and the drives show up and the error in device manger goes away... there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why this happens. when it does and i try to save something to the drive, that's when i get the "semaphore timeout period has expired"

i have tried to update drivers using windows search online and it always says i have the best drivers loaded....

the drives have been checked for errors and windows reports none... there is still quite a bit of available space on them (80+ gigs on each) and when they are connected and live, i can access files with no problem... it just decides to seemingly drop the drive randomly...

thanks for any help...

I maintain some software that makes a tcp socket connection to a different piece of software and sends data back and forth (pretty basic stuff there). We use boost asio to handle reading and writing of data over the socket connection. We have a client that
has deployed this software on Windows7. The client has been having issues with our software not being able to maintain a reliable socket connection. One thing I have noticed is that quite often the networking callback are receiving the error: The semaphore
timeout period has expired.

This error is not coming from anywhere in our code (or the boost code). I've done some research on it and I found a Microsoft Knowledge base article on this error for Windows XP (support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/325487). I've seen a few people ask questions about
this error on Windows7, but they're all in regards to moving files to different drives, nothing regarding network connections.

What does this error mean in regards to Windows7? Does the knowledge base article I mentioned still apply to Windows7?

Got a message "This application is not supported on this platform". I have Vista Home Premium 64 bit as the o/s.

Also have successfully installed Power Point 2003 so did not expect any problems.

Is Producer 2003 incompatible with the 64 bit sytem?
Thanks,
Al

Greetings,

My environment is: Win'7, Visual Studio 2010, C#

There is another message on these forums with almost exactly the same title. It's closed, so I couldn't post there.

I'm getting that exact same response from Win'7 in a try /catch scheme.

i.e., "...The semaphore timeout period has expired..."

I am quite confident that the serial port is really there, as he will open and will transfer data from time to time.

It's the whims of the hardware that have me so confused.

The exact same code worked perfectly last night. In fact, it has worked for weeks.

The statement which I believe is causing the error is...
TheUsersChosenSerialPort.Open();​

Much like the other thread mentioned, the port is a BlueTooth connector, and Win'7 is reporting him okay, and so on.

I welcome responses from those with useful knowledge on this topic.

I am trying to connect to a serial device. The sp.Open() method throws these two exceptions in the Output window:

The semaphore timeout period has expired
A first chance exception of type 'System.IO.IOException' occurred in System.dll

What's going on here? I'm running Windows 7, and using the exact same code that was already tested and worked perfectly on Windows XP. No code changed, and the hardware is identical - just the OS changed.

I have a toshiba satelite 205 that has a SD slot. When I insert the card to transfer files I get the error: Semaphore time period has expired......
I read somewhere that if you lock the card that you can view the files, but you still cannot write to or from the disk. Does anyone know of a fix for this? Please help, I really need to use this disk.

Hi Ishead!!

I went to toshiba's website and it gives instructions on how to use the card reader properly. I am wondering has the card reader ever worked for you before? How old is the laptop? Maybe it's under warrenty? Need some info to help you out. Thanks

Whenever I try to copy large files over a wireless network (Laptop > Desktop) I get the following error:-
 
Error 0x80070079: The semaphore timeout period has expired
 
I've done a search on Google and have found that a number of other users are having the same problem, but no-one seems to have a fix for it.
 
Can anyone help?
 
(I'm running Vista Ultimate on both my Laptop & Desktop)

A:Error 0x80070079: The semaphore timeout period has expired

Hello Ady,
 
Thanks for your post!
 
This issue may be a little complex and require some steps to troubleshoot:
 
1.    Update the driver of wireless network adapters in both of your computers.
2.    Temporarily disable all the firewalls and anti-virus applications, then check the issue again.
3.    To exclude the factors from other services and applications, do a clean boot to check the issue and perform Step 4.(KB929135) How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vistahttp://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;929135
4.    With clean boot, try to apply the hotfixes contained in the following KB articles:(KB932045) Error message when you use a network connection to copy a large file from one Windows Vista-based computer to another Windows Vista-based computer: "The connection has been lost"
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932045(KB932063) Several problems occur on a Windows Vista-based computer when you work in a wireless network environment
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932063
If problem still persists after steps above, this issue is very possibly due to network devices or configurations, please let me know:
 
1.    Whether this problem occurs in wired network?
2.    If strengthening the network signals, the problem can be changed?
3.    What size of files will lead to this error.
4.    Does this error terminate the copy process?

So I did a search and found nothing definitive regarding this particular error in my application.

I have a Dell laptop with an i7 processor, an SSD drive and 8g of ram, running Win7 Pro 64 bit.

I put a 128G micro sd card into the sd card adapter and slapped into the slot. When I try to move files to the card, I get the error.

I formatted the card just for grins. It won't format NTFS, but it did format exFat @ default allocation unit size.

The only file that didn't copy was one that's 21 megs in size. Everything else was smaller and copied over fine.


Donno what to do from here. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello,

currently I have quite a strange problem with USB:
For some time I have been using a Microsoft Wireless Mouse connected via a proprietary bluetooth transceiver. It worked fine until about two months ago - I booted the computer as every day and the mouse didn't work anymore. Even changing the USB-port of the transceiver or a reboot showed no result.
Using a plain old PS2 Mouse and Keyboard I found out that the &quot;device could not be started (Code 10)&quot;.
However, I had the feeling that the mouse reacted some seconds before the desktop actually showed up.

I decided that the transceiver must have a hardware fault and replaced with with a standard BT-Transceiver by HAMA which has been working fine from then.

I experienced no other problems related to USB (all devices are working fine).

Today, however, I got a new Mouse (Logitech MX Performance) coming with a so called &quot;Logitech Unifying Receiver&quot;. I plugged it in and Windows didn't find any drivers. That puzzled me a bit as Windows did find almost any driver automatically via Windows Update in the past.
So I installed the Logitech software (the one for the mouse and the one for the receiver). But still, no driver could be found.
Then I tried manually forcing Windows to use the right driver for the device. It was installed properly but then an exclamation mark appeared in device manager saying that &quot;the device could not be started (Code 10)&quot;.

Hello all you wonderful people staring into computer screens making the world a more beautiful place to live.

I keep looking for help and I keep finding that all my querys direct me to these forums.

What I need to do is simple.

Optimize my laptop for Ableton live. I have an APC40 (AKAI) and the latency is a big issue, It's almost impossible for me to perform on it (Due to lag & crashes) I will be happy to fetch any info on my pc or registry, and hopefully one of you wonderful programmers can take a look at my setup and offer some advice. Like Some pages on YouTube suggest disabling "superfetch" also what is the Microsoft framework. Mainly I need sombody to tell me what msconfig stuff to change and I will most grateful. It should be easy. All I use is After effects, Ableton Live8, Sony Vegas 12, Adobe Photoshop cs6, & Wirecast & thats it. I installed MSE & I use Chrome.

My Laptop is:

Acer Aspire 5552

AMD Phenom(tm) II N830

Triple-Core Processor 2.10 Ghz

4.00 GB Ram (3.74 Usable)

Please let me know how to copy and paste any applicable info pertaining to this:
Thank you in advance
