Newbie deploying VB.net / SQLExpress app
Posted on 2007-03-23
I developed an app using VB.net and SQLExpress. Now, I need to deploy my application. I have a few questions:
1) When the application is first installed on a server, how do I make SQLExpress attach the database
2) On client machine, I need to modify the connection strings in the config to point to the server. How do I determine the server's name?
3) Should I create two installer?? One for server and one for client machine?
4) If after installing the app on the server, how do I make changes to the db (ie add/delete table, columns etc..)??
