India : Search Private Limited Company Name

In India if you want to open a private limited company, you have to make sure that the name you are choosing for your company should be available for the services you want to provide.

You can check if your company name is available or not at Ministry of Commerce affair site.

If this link is not working ( Some times it says “session Expired” ),  than please visit this link, and then from Other Services menu select “Check Company or LLP Name”

This site is a bit crappy so be have patience and try if it is not working correctly.


Just select Relation : Contains any where or Starts with,  and enter name of your company in Company Name or LLP Name and hit enter ( At the time of writing the search button was not working :) ). It should come up with list of companies that have your company name in their name.

svn : Can not Parse lock / entries hashfile

Recently we moved our svn repositories from one URL to other. I don’t remember exactly what happened, but we started to get error

“svn : Can not Parse lock / entries hashfile “

whenever we try to take lock or release any lock from on any file in that repository. I have tried a hell lot to solve this problem, but I was not able to solve it in a clean manner.

So I have decided to take reset all the locks and asked on StackOverflow to help me. I received answer from Ben Blank and I followed his advise. I have manually release all locks from repository by Deleting <root>/db/locks folder. And all the locks were reset again.

Caution : Make sure you take backup of your repositories before doing such things.

Asp.Net website : Exclude folder from compilation

Problem :

We used to have website projects, which does not come with project files like .csproj. We also have fckEditor folder in our project. So now every time when I build my project it unnecessarily also build fckEditor folder also which is really annoying to me ( I hate when something takes too long to build :) ).

If you are working on Asp.Net Web Application then the solution is very simple, you just have to “Exclude it” from the project. BUT we are working on WebSite project not web application project.

Solution :

In fact it is quiet simple. Just hide the folder, I mean, Make the folder ( the one that you don’t want to be included in compiling process) hidden and it will not be there in the build list.  So simple. :)

Outlook 2007 – Receive mails from particular accounts only

Problem :

As per my work requires, I manage lots of eMail accounts which includes My personal account, My work account. I have forwarded all emails from my personal account to my work account,  so that I just need to check one account only.

But it creates a big problem now. Whenever outlook performs Send/Receive it receives two copies of each mail from my personal account.

  1.   Originally from my personal account.
  2.   Forwarded copy from my Work account ( Since I have forwarded all mails from my personal  account to my work account.)

Solution :

What I actually want is

Follow the steps below to achieve above :

1. Go to Tools –> Options


2. Go to Mail Setup –> Send Receive


3. Click Edit


4. It will list all your accounts in left side pane.


5. Select the account. It will show you Account Options for send mail items and receive mail items. If you just want to send eMails using this account than check the Send Mail items and uncheck the Receive mail items.


6. Press Ok –> Cliose –> Ok.

And you are done. :)
