Google Play cannot download error 495

When downloading an application from Google Play while using mobile / cellular network, the download may fail and Google Play reports "error 495". In my case, the fix was to enable background data for the "Media" application (I restrict almost all applications from downloading background data on my phone).

  1. Navigate to Settings, Data Usage.
  2. Select the mobile operator tab.
  3. Scroll down until you find "Media" application. If has "restricted" next to it, it is prevented from downloading background data, so enable it and try to install your application again.

Recursive preorder traversal of a folder tree in VBA

To process files in a folder tree using Excel, I implemented a recursive preorder traversal of a tree in VBA below. I haven't had to do this earlier because I usually use Gnu "find . -exec" to process files in folders.
Option Explicit

'1. Microsoft Scripting Runtime

Global gFso As Scripting.FileSystemObject

Sub Main()
  Set gFso = New Scripting.FileSystemObject
  TraversePreorder "C:\KS Work\Temp"
End Sub

Sub TraversePreorder(ByVal sPath As String)
  Dim oFolder As Scripting.Folder, vMember As Variant
  If gFso.FolderExists(sPath) Then
    Debug.Print sPath 'Process folder
    Set oFolder = gFso.GetFolder(sPath)
    For Each vMember In oFolder.Files
      TraversePreorder vMember
    Next vMember
    For Each vMember In oFolder.SubFolders
      TraversePreorder vMember
    Next vMember
    Debug.Print sPath 'Process file
  End If

End Sub
