deploy vb.net winform and sqlexpress application
Posted on 2009-04-01
I have an application developed on my pc. All is working fine. The vb.net winform application is in a vs project folder and the sqlexpress database is c:\sql databases. Now I need to deploy the sql database to a file server and then deploy the vb.net application to mulitple pc's on the network. I am not sure what is the best way to do this?
a) What are the steps needed to deploy the vb.net application from Visual Studio Express.
b) What needs to be done at the pc's where the application will be installed?
c) What needs to be done on the file server to install the sqlexpress database?
d) What do I need to do to have the pc's access and share the sql database located on the file server?
e) What issues will I have once deployed to the multi-pc network envornment that I am not seeing in my existing 1 pc setup?
Any help, insight, guidence or starting pointers would be greatly appreciated.
