Problem with SETUP & DEPLOYMENT

marius40marius40 Posts: 42Member
I have run / debug my application and it is not giving me any errors. The moment i tried to create a setup and deployment i start getting problems. The setup file is created and when i install it, it does what it is supposed to do. BUT.. when i run it , it says Exeption was thrown in Mymodule.vb.

I have the module here, and it looks fine. Can anybody tell me what is going on.

Is there anybody to whom i can send ALL of my code, to help me, yust with the compiling.. This is a project for College i am working on, and my time is running out. PLEASE HELP...!!!
Here is the mymodule code..
[code]
Public Module MyModule
Dim Rs_AppPath As String = System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory
Public testname1, testname2, testname3, testname4, testname5, testname6, testname7, testname8, testname9, testname10 As String
Public AmountTests As Integer
Public str As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;User ID=Admin;Data Source=" & Application.StartupPath.Substring(0, Application.StartupPath.LastIndexOf("bin")) & "libra.mdb;Mode=Share Deny None;Extended Properties=;Jet OLEDB:System database=;Jet OLEDB:Registry Path=;Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=5;Jet OLEDB:Database Locking Mode=1;Jet OLEDB:Global Partial Bulk Ops=2;Jet OLEDB:Global Bulk Transactions=1;Jet OLEDB:Create System Database=False;Jet OLEDB:Encrypt Database=False;Jet OLEDB:Don't Copy Locale on Compact=False;Jet OLEDB:Compact Without Replica Repair=False;Jet OLEDB:SFP=False"

    A null reference exception? Can you paste in the entire details from the exception your getting?

    I have a sneaking suspicion its on the Public str as string line.

    What framework are you using? (2003-1.1, 2005-2.0, 2008-3.5)

    That is a strange error, can you describe how you've compiled and are installing this application? I have never built an executable installer. If you have a meebo.com account you can find me on there as FireSickle (or if you have MSN, I am on that as firesickle gmail com)

    I am using 2005. I used the SETUP-WIZARD. I first build the application and then added the SETUP-Wizard PROJECT. I have a feeling that some path in my application is not finding something. Maybee in resources.

    Is there someplace i can send my code so that someone can try to compile it. It is about 5 meg when zipped. The code is not professional, and i dont want someone to re-write it, just to look at this problem.. PLEASE..

    I don't know of any places. What kind of time frame are we looking at? I am at work right now, and will be until late tonight (doing inventory counts and supporting the inventory system at one of our plants near Memphis).

    I can take a look at your code, but I cannot guarantee I can make heads or tails of it...

    Thanks. I would appreciate any help..

    I am looking at the code, it compiles correctly. When is it giving you that error?

    It is compiling correctly, but when i run the program that is being installed, it does not run. THat is, after i installed it on a 3rd party computer.

    Please try that

    When you install this software on a third party computer, please ensure that the Windows XP .Net Framework 2.0 is installed.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&displaylang=en

    I was able to run this on a PC that did not have Developer studio, but had 2.0 installed properly... I dont know how your installing, i just used the .exe file that was in the Bin folder...

    I created an setup -depoyment project using SETUP-WIZARD which i added to the project. I know it runs from the exe in the bin. But i am supposed to have an executable application. THe moment i run my setup and the 3rd party tries to run it, it throws and exeption.

    Do you know how i should add the setup project to this project, because i think this is where i am going wrong?

    Any other mistakes you can spot, i need good marks and would love some +- critics, i dont know someone that has the knowledge to look at it.
    thanks again
