I am creating an application (VS2005, C++ Forms application) that is supposed to work on many different machines that won't have any version of Visual Studio and I am wondering what I should worry about. I am using the Mysql connector, so apparently the machine running it will need to have some compatible version of MySQL, but appart from that, what else should I do to make it work? I'm sure that just giving out the .exe file in the project/release file won't suffice...
Edit: I tried running on a different machine (same .NET, same MySQL, even same Visual Studio), but if I try to run the.exe it gives me a error message saying: "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem". I also tried building on it (desperate thought, because it doesn't have the connector) and it gave me the following output:
1>------ Build started: Project: Carna2e, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
1>Copying 'f:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\System.dll' to target directory...
1>Build log was saved at "file://f:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\Carna2e\Carna2e\Debug\BuildLog.htm"
1>Carna2e - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)
========== Build: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
here is the build log, that is (like it should) the same with the output:
Build started: Project: Carna2e, Configuration: Debug|Win32
Command Lines Copying 'f:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\System.dll' to target directory...
Results Build log was saved at "file://f:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\Carna2e\Carna2e\Debug\BuildLog.htm"
Carna2e - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)
Fixed: Apparently I also had to have the connector installed... Will you tell us what language/framework your application is developed in?
