Web Forms :: Display Desktop Application Within A Web Browser?
I am currently re-building ourCRM. Our shipping department uses a 3rd party desktop application from our shipping company. The applicationis only about 400px wide and around 300px high.

Currently they switch between our intranet/crm and the shipping app, real waist of time.

I was trying to find out if there is any way I could window that application withina webbrowser.

This way they could stay on the CRM shipping page and just at the bottom right corner of the web browser have full control of the app.

Haven't really been able to find anything on search about this.

C# - Possible To Deploy Application As Desktop Application (with Server Component)
Question: I created an ASP.NET web application. Now it originally was meant for deployment on a webserver.
That is working, so, so far so good. My question now is: Is it possible to deploy it as a desktop-application, too? That is to say the installer installs some kind of server, plus the web application, configures the server to run this application on a localhost URL, and then creates a link in the start menu/desktop, where it opens that url (website, the application) on localhost in a web browser?

I think it should be possible, though the server wouldn't be IIS, because this is a windows component which can't be separately installed. Is there anything like this already out there? The nonplusultra would be that it only starts the server when you click on the shortcut.

Use System.Web In Desktop Application
I just added System.Web reference to a dll assembly, the assembly is for windows applications and for web applications. IF the assembly will be deployed on a server, System.Web will be shared using GAC, and there is no overhead. But what about windows clients. I am wondering if there are extra resources or any kind of problems when System.Web is loaded into memory?

C# - How To Get Web Application To Communicate With Desktop Application
I have developed a Web and windows application, both in C#.NET. Now, what I would like to do is when a button is clicked on a particular page in the web application, a signal has to be sent to the windows app saying a link has been clicked. How could I do this really easily? I would like to stay away from socket programming...

I thought of the web app storing cookies and the desktop application monitoring the cookies folder but that seems a bit clumsy.

After a while I have to sync both databases.

What will be best way to do this? Is there any opensource example/ starter kit to start with?

C# - Render ASP Controls In Desktop Application?
Is it possible to take a page object, or maybe just a single ASP.NET control, and render it in a desktop application in some way? For example, Visual Studio, being a desktop application renders ASP.NET controls in the design surface. I want to do something similar.


I am brainstorming on how to make a very simple designer for a very simple data entry application. I would have some custom ASP.NET data entry controls, and I want lay users to be able to see what the page might look like as close as possible. So I would want a panel in the application to show the rendered collection of controls, but the panel does not need to be interactive in any way. I.e. no click and drag or resizing of controls, etc. There will be standard windows form controls that the form author interacts with for defining the layout of the page.

I will simply save a list of the controls they added with some other information the "designer"(who are non-technical experts) provides, and I will use that information to later create the actual aspx page, either through a manual or automated process, TBD.

Security :: Membership And A Desktop Application?
I have an MVC application which uses the Membership services.I am importing a user list from another application that doesn't have any sort of Membership use, so I'm just using a csv file for the import, and writing a standalone C# app to do it.How do I get the standalone app to use the MVC application's database? The code works, in that calls to Membership.CreateUser are returning, but I'm not seeing the users appear in the correct database. So if the database is on my local machine and called "FooBar" how do I tell the Provider to use that instead of whatever default it's using?

Websites Functionality Reuse By Desktop Application
We are implementing some business functionality that it exposed through the web service. At the current stage user interface is required for some peace of it and we are going to implement it inside of already existing desktop application (it is MFC C++ application, but we are considering to integrate some WinForms/Wpf components). In the nearest future we plan to replace current desktop application with a web site version (it will be web site, or PROBABLY Silverlight application). Therefore, I would like to implement UI once on the web site and just re-use it in some way from desktop application. Am I clear enough? Is there any way to do that? For sure, I can implement web service and use it from desktop application right now and re-use it from web application when it will be required... But I hope there is a better way to do that.

Install Different Silverlight Application To Desktop Than One That Is Running Currently
Specifically, I have the main application running in the browser. I would like to offer a link to install a set of tools that provide the user to perform a subset of the functionality provided in the main application. I'd like to have a link that says, "Install Tools," and this would in turn kick off the Out Of Browser installation of the tools, not the main application.

How To Get Webpage To Return Value To Desktop Application Caller
I need to make an autoupdater for my application. This has been done, and it is working perfectly. However, my application currently downloads version.txt, and reads it to work out whether it needs to download the new application. This is hideous, and slow, and was only supposed to be very temporary. It is also very annoying that we have to update this file every time we release a new version.

My boss wants me to create a webpage that reads the version data from the uploaded .exe, and then returns that to the Desktop application. Therefore, I would be able to call, and it would return the version number, such as 1.1. I could then compare to the current version (don't worry, it is generated on the fly, and not hard coded) and then I could download the application if required.

Here comes my question. How would I go about this? I have heard of CGI scripts, and Which one of these has the power to solve my problem. If you could just tell me that, then I will be all sorted, as I could read up on it, learn, and broaden my knowledge.

If this is not possible, or not easily possible, is there any way of reading the file version of a remote .exe, without downloading it. This would also be preferable in many ways.

P.S. I did try to explain this to my boss, and suggested that maybe he could either do it, but he is not very good at web applications, and refused, saying that it would broaden my education in this matter.

EDIT: Somehow forgot to add: I normally program in C#, although this application should be so small, that it would not really matter. Also, C# code would be ideal, if there is a way to check the version of a file on a remote server.

Architecture :: Local Website Or Desktop Application?
I want to create asuite ofthree products. One is a website, so that is set in stone. Another is amobile application, so that will be written as an application (for whatever devices).Thethird product is something thatthe user can use locally on their machine. However, I'm not sure if I want to make it a desktop application or a local website. With a desktop application, if I make a significant change to my business rules, I have to make it in three places (assuming the dll change needs a GUI change).However, if I makeit a local website, then almost everything would be the same as the regular website. Desktop applications seem to provide more controls that are easier to use though. And since I'm taking this project on alone (right now)easy sounds best. But I don't want to sacrifice easy now for easy later.

The website I want to write will be using MVC architecture. I'm not even sure how to deploy a website yet either to a server or to a local machine. The only thing I've done was set up a local website before for a website that was already created in house by my co-workers.And that was solely ASP.Net, no MVC architecture.

My questions are:What do you guys think would be best in the long run; a local website that mimics the regularwebsite or a desktop application?

Is there a way to create an install package to install a website so the user doesn't have to tinker with their computer at all?
