Server and Client Deployment

P: n/a

Hi All,

I have developed one application software, and done the deployment as
well...
by clicking Setup.exe, my application software is able to install. after
installation is done, then click the XXX.exe, then able to run the
application.

my problem is that......
if i got 10 users want to run this application, i got to do the same
installtion 10 times on each PC....
i am wondering if anyone know how to use Visual Baisc DotNet to create a
light client installation.

What i mean here is that all the DLL file, i want to stored at server....and
my clients only the interface...
for exmaple.....SQL 2000 or other ERP software....

SQL 2000
we can install SQL server on A, but the SQL Client on B, then B still have
access to A server, to control......

ERP
most ERP software always got 1 server installtion and clients
installation.......
server side always buggy and heavy, but clients workstation side always
light and easy
for my application software...i want to do the same as well....
install the whole application on server, later for all other client, i just
need to run another setup for clients workstation, then that the application
will get everything from server

pls advise...thank you....

I don't know what the best way is, but one Idea of mine is to

put the setup in a shared folder on the network
and send out a registry file to all users that makes an entry in the RunOnce
Key of the registry so that it will run your app install on next boot.

HTH,
