Multi user sql server and visual studio application

9 posts in this topic

Hy. I need some help with a problem i've got. I have a sql database and a visual studio aplication for which I have made a setup. I can install the setup on any PC connected to my wireless network and I can populate my database through it. This works just fine. But there is somenthing else i need to do. I want for my visual studio application, when I press a button, to launch an external application from my PC (GNS3.exe) . I have made it work on my computer (the server) with the following command: Process.Start("gns3.exe") or Process.Start("C:\users......\gns3.exe"). Now I want all the clients from my network to acces it as well, but i haven't been able to make it work.

So, I want the users to acces a GNS3 application from my PC, i want them to be able to modify the application and save their work so that i can see later what they have done.

I hope someone can help me, I wold really apreciate it. Thank you.

So you are not using any code management software like Team Foundation Server?

Well, Team Foundation Server replaced Visual SourceSafe for source control. You can see some of the features here:

It isn't a free product, but you may have access to it depending on if you have a TechNet or MSDN subscription.

Thanks. I hope it will work. But I still have a few questions. Does the Trial of Team Foundation Server have any restrictions (accept the obvious one of 90 days)? The installation works even if i have Visual Studio 2008 installed on my PC? Can I import my application in Team Foundation Server? How does it work? Sorry for asking so many questions....

I haven't used any source control programs since using Visual SourceSafe in 2005, so I'm antiquated in that department by now. :D

TFS is designed for very large companies, and may be more than you need (and more than your wallet needs), so I also found some other platforms that are more-or-less just source control and either very cheap or free.

Apache Subversion (SVN)

Git

Mercurial

I am not in the position to recommend one or the other, as I haven't used any of them (not even TFS). ;)

A source control package will only help you share access to source code - if GNS3.exe is a third party app with no source, you're out of luck.

sorry for the delay. I have abandoned the idea. Thanks for your help.
