(Apologies in advance if this has been answered previously; I just couldn't find it, if it was.)
I have a VB 2013 Express for Desktop app that reads and writes to an Access 2010 database. That is all working just fine. In fact I can publish it and it works fine. (I guess.) And it took me FOREVER to find a way to get the file to come along with the published app. (I finally "added" the file to my Solution; set the Build action to Content; and the Copy to Output Directory to Copy Always). Well, the published program runs fine and I can make changes to the database as shown by fields on my form that display the updated data.
Wow, was I excited. Except....I'd like to find where that updated file is on my hard drive. Because if my client updates that database I want to get a copy of that database to replace MY (now out-of-date) copy.
No clue as to how to find that updated file (if it exists). Maybe I'm doing something else wrong, too. But I need SPECIFIC instructions on how to do it (i.e., not a lot of tech-talk; I don't do this very often so, while competent I'm not an polished expert).I DID find the file with this appendage: .deploy.
