Deploying access project

Hi;

I have spent some time investigating this issue, and I would like to
verify with you my findings. I would greatly appreciate someone
experianced saying yes to what I concluded, or no and why....

I have access project. It was developed on MS SQL Server 2000 full
edition....
I want to destribute it to my customers. They do not need MSSQL
Server.

I understand that I can package my access project with Microsoft SQL
Server 2000 Desktop Engine (which is lighter version of MSSQL Server,
but (equally???) capable database in its core?) using Microsoft Office
Developer. It would turn my project and MS SQL DE into an exe file
which would be
easily installable to clients machine.
Am I right? Is this the only way to do this?

Thanks a lot

You are correct, with exception to some limitations on database size and
user concurrency in using MSDE (desktop engine). Read the MSDE White Paper
to find out more, from Microsoft of course.

The Office developer edition has a wizard that will package the entire
installation. I would suggest deploying .ADE instead of .ADP with the
access runtime if you want to protect your code.

A quick scan of the group did not immediately reveal an answer to my questions so here goes. First let me describe my app and then I'll ask the questions. I am writing a Windows Forms App (not Web Forms) that serves as a thin client to some web services. In other words, the Windows Forms app will be installed on the client machines and that app will call web services that are deployed on my server.

Hi there, hope someone can help me on this: I'm planning to deploy several ASP.NET projects to a production server. Normally I used the "Project / Copy project" option in VS.NET, but to this production server I only have FTP access.

Or is it possible to just make 1 virtual directory and put al the projects...

Hi, I have created an ASP.NET application (let's call it FooBar) with VS.NET on my local machine, residing in http://localhost/FooBar. Deploying it to another folder on my machine works well with FrontPage Server Extensions, but I don't manage to deploy the application to my web provider http root folder. When I run Copy Project, I get an error message just saying 'Unable to create Web project 'myname'. Not found.'.

I posted this last week end in the MSDN forums. No luck there. Let's see what the experts here have to say:-)))) I have a rather convoluted project. The distributable will come in eight different flavors, each with its main program, libraries, datafiles, doco, etc. Each flavor will also have one or more standalone executables that can be called as tools from within the main program.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
