deploy windows application

I have a windows app that I have installed successfully on many
computers. I switched over to Vista for my development machine and
then made some changes to the app in VS2005. Now when i go to install
the application on a client PC it gives an unhandeled exception as
soon as I click on the icon to run the app. How can i troubleshoot
this to find out what is causing the problem? Thanks for your help.

Attach a debugger? You can install the .NET CLR debugger (part of the SDK)
or Visual Studios on the machine that is crashing.

P.S. Make sure you do a debug release.

My problem was solved by installing the new version of the oracle
client on the client PC.

Hi fellows, I have two simple questions regarding the Framework's deploy and the Setup and Deploy Projects: 1. As I've read in another posts and newsgroups (and as I can imagine), VS.NET IDE isn't capable of create a setup and deploy project and, in a elegant way, during the setup process, detect the absence of the Framework.

I want to deploy a Visual studio.net windows application. This application uses MSCOMM32.OCX control. This application works fine on a development machine. However, if I deploy it on a non-developer machine, the application fails to load. It throws an exception, class is not licensed for use. In the source code, a new instance of the control is created, so, when, at runtime, it looks for a design-time license for the control.

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,...
