We developed business application using Oracle 10g as the database and VB.Net as front end. Application has One exe and approx 100 dll files for various forms which are called by reflection and loaded at run time.
1. Server is Windows 2003 server which has Framework and Crsyatl reports .net runtime installed. It also has Oracle 10g database server. We created shared folder say kcpl at windows 2003 server and placed exe file and all dll files in that folder.
2..Framework and Crystal reports .net runtime are instralled at the Server and each Node
When we copy the software .i.e exe file and all indiividual form dll files onto local machine (each node) , they work properly. But we try to create a short cut from the shared folder kcpl from the windows server , we get public security permission error. We used to run the application properly in VB6 platform by creating shortcut from the shared folder in server.
If we need to copy all the software files (exe as well as dll files) in every node, it is not workable as the changes are done to dll files very frequently. Even Click Once deployment is also not workable.
Kindly guide as to who we make this fully trusted application and run from the shared folder of server itself. We wish to run the application in LAN environment as well as in Internet environment.
