deploying req. minimal installation. Can this be left out?

Post by kerrywales » Thu 28 Oct 2010 09:39

I am trying to use MS setup and deployment project to deploy my app that uses devart.

The project has included
Devart.Data.dll
Devart.Data.PostgreSQL.dll
Devart.Data.PostgreSQL.Entity.dll

which are stored in the same folder as the app. The app.config includes















as guided previously. The first time the PC needs to use the app with Devart I still require to install the library from the licensed code (minimal installation).

What am I missing? Should I tell the MS setup & deploy project to "register" the devart DLL's?

If so which one(s) and with what is the Register property value?
default value is: vsdraDoNotRegister.

Many thanks.

Kerry

I have just been reading the notes on the Oracle deployment.

My app.config include the text

Code: Select all


 
I have no idea where this came from. Should this be removed?
Also in the section. I presume the version number should be that of
Devart.Data.PostgreSQL
and not of
Devart.Data

And the runtime section includes info for Devart.Data

Code: Select all

				
				
			
Can someone tell me if this is the correct construct.

Could you please explain why you need to make the minimal installation? Are there any errors? Please post here the exact text of the errors and your current version (the Tools > PostgreSQL > About menu of Visual Studio).

The Deployment topic is described here: http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/postgr ... yment.html. A deployed application also should have a valid license resource: http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/postgr ... nsing.html.
