When a certificate is "untrusted" by IE (such as a self-signed certificate), it displays a "Certificate error" icon next to the address bar. It used to be that you can click on that icon, "View certificates", then install it. On Windows 7, because of UAC , the "Install Certificate..." button is no longer displayed. In order to see the button, you have to start IE9 with administrator privileges: right click on the IE9 shortcut icon and select " Run as administrator... ". To save the certificate to a file, click the Details tab on the Certificate dialog, then click " Copy to File... ".

Two things need to happen to properly display Chinese in Windows XP: Install Chinese fonts: from Control Panel -> Regional And Language Options, check "Install files for East Asian languages" and click Apply or OK. In the "Advanced tab", select Chinese for "Language for non-Unicode programs". If you did 1 but not 2, your browser may display Chinese correctly, but you still see garbage when you run desktop applications

Cygwin comes with openssh and X Windows. You need to select these packages from the cygwin installation screen: openssh (Net) X-start-menu-icons (X11, optional) xinit (X11) xorg-server (X11 server) To start an X-enabled remote SSH session, you need to start the X server on the cygwin side first: startxwin then enter: ssh -Y user@network-address This allows you run X apps on cygwin, but you won't see your normal Linux desktop (gnome, KDE etc.). In order to see remote desktop, you need to run XDMCP (Display Manager Control Protocol, which isn't secure). It's a bit tricky to set up XDMCP over ssh.

MinGW is "Minimalist GNU for Windows" - a collection of freely available and freely distributable Windows specific header files and import libraries that allows you to build Windows native executables with GCC. MSYS is a minimal system that provides a POSIX compatible shell and utilities so that you can run the normal set of GNU build tools (such as configure, make). You can download MinGW and MSYS from sourceforge.net: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435 . The set of files is overwhelming and installation is confusing sometimes. But here's what I did in order to build ffmpeg on Windows XP: Download "Automated MinGW Installer" (MinGW 5.1.4) Install MinGW 5.1.4. Select "Candidate". Check g++, but leave other options unchecked Finish installation of MinGW Install MSYS DTK 1.0 in C:\msys\1.0. Download "MSYS...
