Licensing and deployment question

Licensing and deployment question

Postby dummyname » Wed 02 Jun 2010 07:19

Hi,

is it possible that you create a setup which only contains the minimal installation? The minimal installation works well on systems we deploy on, but because it setup package contains the full installation it is not possible to pack it on a setup cd and give it to the customer.

Thanks in advance.

The recommended way of deploying applications that use dotConnect for PostgreSQL is to include the needed Devart run-time assemblies and the license resource to your application. The assemblies needed depend on the functionality used in your project, but basic assemblies are Devart.Data.dll and Devart.Data.PostgreSql.dll. For more information on this, please see the Licensing and Deployment topics of our documentation:
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/docs/Licensing.html
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/docs/Deployment.html

Please tell us if you've tried this method and whether you've encountered any problems with it.

DbProviderFactory say something different

Hallo,

thx for answering.

The help says the following

ms-help://Devart.Data.PostgreSql/dcPgSQL/Licensing.html#dbprov

DbProviderFactory Notes
Applications that call dotConnect for PostgreSQL through DbProviderFactory require dotConnect for PostgreSQL installed on target machine. To deploy dotConnect for PostgreSQL launch installer and use Minimal install type. The licenses.licx file is not required in this case. DbProviderFactory support allows using dotConnect for PostgreSQL in SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence Solutions.


The minimal installation is the most easy way for us to get everything working. The only thing that prevents us from doing so is the fact that your installation package contains the full installation as well. A thing that would help would be an installation package that contains the minimal installation only and that would have an option for a quite installation. Are there any reasons against that?

Best regards
David

We will analyze possible ways for automatic deployment of applications using BIS. Possibly, we will prepare an installation package with the only Minimal option available. We will inform you here about the results of our investigation.
