deploy a vb.net app

P: n/a
I'm a newbie also. My app runs great on my PC. However, I don't want to run
it for everyone else which is what is happening now.

It's a pretty simple app, 1 windows form calls on 1 of 4 other forms. These
4 other forms generate Crystal report PDFs on a network drive based on dates
input by the user.

I've read enough to be really confused. One article that I read said that
installation should be as simple as installing the .NET Framework on the
client PC, moving the solution folder and it should run.

Well it does run but it doesn't do anything. I get the first form, make my
choice. It calls the second form, I enter my date(s) and it comes back and
says it's complete. However, it hasn't done anything. No errors, no reports
generated.

I'm not sure where to start.

Thanks,

Mary

You are correct you can deploy .NET app just by moving the .exe and .dll
files to other machine. But if you are using Crystal Reports then you have to
create an installer. Otherwise the reports won't show.

For further information about deploying a Visual Studio .NET application, go
to http://support.businessobjects.com/search and download:

Crnet_deployment.pdf - This document discusses how to create an application
deployment project with Crystal Report for Visual Studio .NET (this version
is only installed with Visual Studio .NET and does not come stand alone) on a
client or server computer.
