i developed a vb project(used ms access as my back end) in my desktop.when i want to run the project in some other system is it enough to copy only the exe file?i guess that will not be enough.we have to copy the database also and set the path again when running it in other system.if i make any mistake please do correct me.thanks in advance.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to create an installer for your project and mark the DB as required. Here's a good writeup on creating an installer with VB6

I just ported one of the apps I wrote using PHP 5 under Windows to PHP 4 under unix. I knew I wanted to deploy in this environment - and wrote my code in anticipation of running in the other environment. A brief summary follows: Portability was not too bad. However there were several problems I did not anticipate.

Hi, I'm not a professional programmer, but I've been writing C/C++ and Ada programs for a few years on GNU/Linux without ever concerning on standards and portability to other OSs. I've always noted that when I write code I must use lots of platform specific system calls (POSIX and X/OPEN). Often I found myself using threads and...

I just read couple articles on this group and it keeps amazing me how the portability is used as strong argument for language cleanliness. In my opinion, porting the program (so you just take the source code and recompile) is a myth started 20-30 years ago when world consisted of UNIX systems. Well, world does not consist of UNIX systems...

In this group there is a bunch of people that call themselves 'regulars' that insist in something called "portability". Portability for them means the least common denominator. Write your code so that it will compile in all old and broken compilers, preferably in such a fashion that it can be moved with no effort from the embedded system...

My question is more generic, but it involves what I consider ANSI standard C and portability. I happen to be a system admin for multiple platforms and as such a lot of the applications that my users request are a part of the OpenSource community. Many if not most of those applications strongly require the presence of the GNU compiling...

Greetings, I have some code that is to read unformatted data from disc and interpret it as blocks of unsigned integers. In an attempt to achieve efficiency (it is pretty essential for my application that the code be speed optimized ) I use reinterpret_cast to alias a block of chars read in from disc as a block of integer "words". My...

One of the holy cows here is this "portability" stuff. In practice, portability means: 1) Use the least common denominator of all the supported systems. 2) Between usability / good user experience and portability always choose portability since this minimizes programming effort

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. ...
