VB.NET app and Database Deployment
I hope someone can help me. I recently finished an application for a company using their access database. I am ready to install on a couple of PC's. It is a stand alone program. The problem is each PC is different. One has little or no storage space on C: the other has room on C:. Here is the problem... The setup will store the application where ever they want it to go but the database is hard coded for example c:datafiles. How can I get it to dynamically move say to any drive c: or d: and even shared network drives like S: or to G:, etc. or any place the user has room for just like the application. One user placed app on shared network F: with database on C: the other placed app on shared G: but had no room on C: so I must reconfig app to move database to may it work, this could become a big problem.... Both would like the database to follow the application..(for security and network backup)... Help I am a long time programmer by new to VB.
