How to fix lag with Bluetooth Logitech MX Master 3 and DELL XPS 9710


When I did not use the MX Master 3 for a minute, the mouse would lag, when starting the mouse again on a DELL XPS 9710.

How to fix: Can’t bind to ‘data’ since it isn’t a known property of ‘markdown’

would throw an exception “Can’t bind to ‘data’ since it isn’t a known property of ‘markdown'” only in production builds.

Fixed this by adding

  imports: [

In the AppModule en in de Module containing the component with the template using the “markdown” tag, added:

Custom IHttpHandler 404 not found in .NET Framework 4.7.2


When you add a custom IHttpHandler to your ASP .NET Framework 4.7.2 project in a root folder like /Handlers/MyHandler.ashx and you access the url /Handlers/MyHandler.ashx, this handler will be executed,

But if you want this handler to be executed on another path, you will have to register the custom IHttpHandler.


In my case on IIS 10 with application pool in integrated mode (Managed Pipeline Mode = Integrated):

    <add name="DownloadFile" verb="*" path="Helpers/DownloadFile.ashx" type="My.Custom.NameSpace.MyHandler, My.Assembly " resourceType="Unspecified" />


But if you are also using MVC routing, you will have to ignore this route in the MVC routing:


public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)






Fix .NET 4.7.3 MVC PowerShell msbuild csproj – ASPNETCOMPILER : error ASPRUNTIME: ‘/temp’ is not a valid IIS application.



On a specific system, when using msbuild in the folder: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools\MSBuild\Current\Bin”, I was getting the error:

….csproj” (Build target) (1) ->

   (MvcBuildViews target) -&gt;

     ASPNETCOMPILER : error ASPRUNTIME: '/temp' is not a valid IIS application. [C:\Dev\pri\ZvdZOnline\Source\ZvdZOnline\Zv 



But when I build the project by using msbuild found in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Current\Bin” the error was resolved.


To resolve the error with the msbuild found in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools\MSBuild\Current\Bin”, I replaced the folder by one found on an other system, that did not have the error.
