Advice Please

I have vb 6 apps that use sql server for the backend. These apps compile as a standalone exe file. Therefore, I am able to put these in one place on the network and all the users can run the application. I am trying to move these vb 6 apps to vb.net. I can create a folder on the network with the exe and dlls. It works this way, but I would prefer not to have all the dlls in the folder. This causes me to unnecessarily duplicate the dlls on the network. Is the only real option to create an installation package and install each application on the users machines with the dlls? The global assebly cache still seems to require that the dlls are installed on the local machine even though you can create the snk file in a networked locatio

Thanks in advance for any advice

Hi John,

Using a very basic install package and setting .net security properly, you
can install the exe and the dlls in a network drive - eg, 'f' - and you
shouldn't have to install the dlls on the local machine. I have apps that
do exactly this and I've had no problem.

HTH,

Bernie Yaeger

I am looking for advice on the best method of producing a piece of software written in Visual Basic or Visual Basic.NET that will control another standard windows program such as ‘Notepad' using ole automation. The system will be produced as a stand-alone EXE which will run on a single PC once the installation has been completed, but I also want to be able to easily convert the system to run from a web-site with the minimum of re-work.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
