Hi experts,

I allready finish my first app. using vb6, MySQL and MyODBC, I created the installation package using the Package & Deployment Wizard that come with vb6, because the data base is located in a server of this company it wasn't necessary to include the data base in the package, I configured MyODBC in the client computer to connect it instead.

Now, I need to distribute the app & database to other offices, each office will manage their data separately, so I like to know which is the best way to do that.

Thank you guys.

I'm not sure I understand the question.  Are you asking how best to distribute the setup package?  If so, then that'd depend on your environment.  You could burn it onto a CD, email it out, place it on an FTP server and have staff download it from there, put it on a nework share they can see, connect to the machines it needs to go on and copy it directly to them, if the remote machines it needs to go on are servers you could use FRS to get it to them, and so on.  I can't answer any more definitively without knowing a lot more about your environment.

Thank's Blue,

I just want to install the same program that I'm using in other offices, those offices aren't connected to my office, they will use the program by themselves, I allready have the intallation package but it doesn't have the database, so my quesion is Do I have to include the database while I'm creating the package or just copy the data base then they paste it, and do they have to install mysql software in the computer where they're gonna used the program?

No, you don't have to include the database, you could ship it to them separately.  It just needs to be there before they'll be able to sue the program.  But it makes sense to include it.  If the program uses mysql and they don't already have it installed, then yes, they'll need that too.
