    Selective overwrite with windows installer

    Hi all, I'm making a new Windows Installer for a new version of a program I wrote some time ago which includes some data/settings files. The problem is that the old version is already in use and I need the installer to be able to install the new version while leaving the original data files...

    First time making program

    Firstly, what type of "solution"/"project" is it? If its just a simple WinForms .exe then you can just go to "Build" --> "Build Solution" and it will compile the exe and save it in the folder shown at "Build Output Path:" box on the "Compile" tab of the "Application Properties"...

    Pass switches/command line args to standard WinForm exe on start up.

    Pass switches/command line args to standard WinForm exe on start up.

    Hi, I've got a pogram that I wrote in vb.net which amongst other things is used to print out a form every friday. This is a standard vb.net winforms exe. This is all working fine although it would be good to automate this hopefully through "scheduled tasks". Consequently, I'm now trying to...

    A step up from txt files.

    I dont doubt that, as I said I considered using winsock, but as these programs are running on multiple computers each with a Dynamic DHCP IP I decided the file flag was the easiest way. As I said, all input is welcome, so if you wish to shed some light on these better ways please feel free...

    A step up from txt files.

    Ok, So I just added a Primary Key to the table in the database and everything works now. Sorry about the crazy posts, and answering my own questions. Its kind of thinking out loud I guess. All ideas are greatly appriciated though. Thanks for your input so far.

    A step up from txt files.

    ...ok It worked for a little while but now the "Configure Data Addapter" wizard wont generate the Update or Delete commands. The delete one dosent matter, but the update one is rather essential. I dont know why, it just started doing it. When I ran the new app it threw an error saying it...

    A step up from txt files.

    Well, thats what I was getting using "Microsoft Access Database File (OLE DB)" but when I changed the provider to "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" it went through straight away. ...Strange

    A step up from txt files.

    Interesting, I think the external "flag" is a good idea, the Ordering software wont be "unattanded" but it needs to display new orders automatically. I think I've got what I need now... which is actually what I started with... but now it makes sense, so, heres the plan: The Sales program...

    A step up from txt files.

    Ok... But... I dont need that second table your talking about, but the rest of what you say is exactly what I need. I need a table which allows the Sales team to add a row containing the info from the form via clicking the Submit button, and the same table (or actually only certain columns...

    Nobody knows...? I guess what would work is being able to have 2 simultaneous Microsoft Jet Engine connections from two different programs on two different computers accessing the one single database, both at the same time. Or ANYTHING that will let me get a simmilar end result. PS. The...

    A step up from txt files.

    Hi all, I'm writing a program which is in two parts, firstly. Sales: The "Sales" side of the software is just one form with several textboxes, a few checkboxes, a combobox and one button. The idea is that each person in sales has this running on their screen while with the customer, then as...

    Version number without ClickOnce

    I just opened the AssemblyInfo.vb file and set the file version, description, ect. in there then saved it and rebuilt the exe and everything is great, all the info I set is there in the exe. But its still completely irrelavant to any settings on the "Publish" tab. Reguardless, I can set...

    Version number without ClickOnce

    Thats what I'm saying, the path in Build output path is "bin\Release\", but I didn't change it. Orriginally, it was "bin\Debug\" then it created the Release folder and sarted putting it there all on its own. Also, the file version through right click > properties > version, and using MsgBox...
