Set Up file along with database

Posted by Ganeshji under C# on 4/9/2011 | Points: 10 | Views : 1902 | Status : [Member] | Replies : 7
I have created a set up file of my windows form application following the following http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/rahul4_saxena/Setup08232007071849AM/Setup.aspx link. It is working fine. As the database is in my PC, so no prob cropped up. But can any one help me with proper link so that my setup file can easily get connected with the database in my target PC.

Regards,
Ganeshji

I have not looked at that link. When you develop a windows that connects to the DB, save the connection string in the app.config and when you install your app in the target location, just change the connection string to what you want.

HI,

Its gng to be simple... when u build your setup proj itself try creating a config file which holds ur connection string and put that in the resource files of the setup... this way u can change it as per the environment like prod, sat, uat etc

Thanks
