deployment of visual basic widnows application 2005 dilemma
Posted on 2007-10-05
I have deployed my program successfully in terms the users can save and retrieve the data. What I am having issues with is opening various pdf's files. What my program does is it pulls various pdf reports when the users conduct their search and when the user double clicks on a specific report found in a datagrid, it open up on my development machine, but not after deployment. I have zipped over 50 pdf's into a zip folder which I added to Application folder and set the path to the zip folder where all the reports will be located after installation of the program.
When I double click on the found report, I generate an error that"the system cannot find the file specified", but the report is there in an zipped file and the path to it is set withi an ACCESS 2007 database.
I am not familiar with how you can read the reports through the interface of the software that are located within a zip folder.
I even tried unzipping the folder that contrains all these pdf's and that generated the same error.
Can someone with knowledge with this issue please help me?
