Run 2003 application .exe from a network location

Hi Experts,

I have designed an application in VB.Net 2003. Is there anyway that I can run the .exe generated from the deployment, on a shared folder on the network. this would save a lot of time updating clients etc.

Many Thanks

You need to install the .Net framework on every computer.

You also need to adjust the security (also on each PC).

Open the Control Panel
Open Administrative tools
Open Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 Wizards
Click Adjust .Net Security
click Next
Select Local Intranet
Change the level of trust to Full
click next
click Finish

Thanks for the comment, tried that, getting the following error:

An except 'Security.Security.SecurityException' has occurred.

do you receive this error when the application is starting? if that's the case, you did something wrong in adjusting the security.

I have a shortcut link on my desktop pointing to the .exe that I want to run. Apllication does not open up, just error message.

I have run a app from a network like you want to do many times with great success.

Have you adjusted the security for the Framework 1.1 (because you have a VB2003 application) on the PC where you try to run the application (the one with the shortcut on its desktop)?

If you copy the application locally, is it running properly?
