Hi

I recently downloaded VB Express edition 2008 and wrote a small application that I would like to deploy on a terminal server - can I do this? or do I need to do something special for a terminal server installation by way of coding or building the package?

I know I have to insall any application on terminal server 2003 as the install user but was really asking more towards the programming/building the exe side of things.

Thanks.

sagarh,

Obviously without the specific of your program, no one can say for certain.

Just make sure that you build your app with the knowledge that it will run on the TS box, and possibly have no connection to the Client.
(For example: be careful when setting personalized registery keys, or user specific data or settings)

(As long as you are not developing a 16 bit DOS application.)
;-)

See this great link for info on setting up an application to run on a Terminal Server:
