Installation problem

P: n/a
I'd like to distribute my database application(written in
VB.Net) to other machines to have some usability testing.
The database connected is MySQL. And the tables are
pretty huge, 15 GB in total. Can someone tell me in which
way can I distribute the application to other machines?
Thanks a lot!

Ship everything on a 20GB hard drive? Perhaps look into a tape drive system?

Ive never had a need to distribute a 15GB application.

Maybe the database can be compressed into a 40 MB ZIP archive...

The 15GB things can be loaded by copying from a public
drive via intranet. I was wondering if I can pack the
processing code and distribute it to other machines.

Is that possible?

Yes...

Thats what your supposed to do.. to package a 15 gb database is well...
insane... no offesne, but it would take you a day per workstation and the
data congruency errors, through the roof!

Just make sure your connection string is dynamic and use a single database..

Assuming you have Visual Studio.NET Pro (I think it
requires that, but maybe not) you can create a new Setup
Project that will create an .msi file and the dialogs
necessary to install the software. All you have to do is
select what files you want packaged and where they go.
The msi file you get is ready to be deployed via internet
or cd or whatever.
