Hey imanjan, so you want to run your application in the same machine where SQL Server was installed or from the different machine(s) or both?

Hey imanjan, is your program working (successfully connecting your database) before creating an installer using InstallShield?

Did you used your connection string with the following format?

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Server=YourServerName\YourInstanceName; Database=YourDataBase; User Id=YourUsername;
  2. Password=YourPassword;");

Still if you've error means next time post the error message...

Hey imanjan, is your program working (successfully connecting your database) before creating an installer using InstallShield?

yes it work correctly

Did you used your connection string with the following format?

Hey imanjan, its because the connection string which you wrote inside your program was to connect your SQL Server Database not your customer machine's SQL Server Database. If you run your program in other machine means you have to specify that machine's connection string in your program like as follows.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Server=Your_Customer_Machine_ServerName\Your_Customer_Machine_InstanceName; Database=Your_Customer_Machine_DataBaseName; User Id=Your_Customer_Machine_Username;
  2. Password=Your_Customer_Machine_Password;");

Hey imanjan, you're developing an application with installer in your computer but you want to run that application in other computers which will connect the SQL Server database in that computer?

Hey imanjan, one way is use local database. Another way is don't store your connection string details (Server name, Database name, User ID, Password) inside your program because it may different from one computer to another computer. Instead of this store Server name, Database name, User ID and Password it in your application settings. And use it in your connection string.

I have written a C# program and then make the setup project. I specify the prerequisite (.NET Framework 3.5) to be downloaded as the same location as my location. However, I find that my project built has almost 200MB because the folder DotNetFX35 occupies 194MB already. How can I make it smaller? I don't want the user download .NET Framework 3.5 on Microsoft's website. Thanks for any idea in advance.
