I've created a SetupWizard, but can't get it to show the Icon for the shortcut on desktop and program menu. The installation goes fine without any errors, the only problem is the icon.
I've made a shortcut of my exe file in the Application Folder and dragged the shortcut to the Desktop folder, then on the shortcut properties, I assigned it an icon picture located in Application Folder.

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?
I want to change the web site where the IIS is. My desktop doesn't have IIS. Therefore, when I hit F5, the project will try launch my ASP.NET Web Application Project from http://localhost I needs to it to launched from [URL]. How can I change the configuration so the web page with URL starting as [URL]? I need it to confirm that the project is being served by the ASP .NET development server.
I have a desktop application which uses BTree/Random Access files for it's core database function. It has run successfully from DOS up to 64bit Windows 7/8 for years now. Currently being developed and maintained with PDS 7.1/VB6 and VB.NET
I now have a fundamental requirement to add/delete/update records using a browser. My users need to host their own server in their office. They have a public facing IP address. Ideally the server should be a desktop machine (W7/8 64bit) which can be used to run the desktop app as well.
Low loading; possibly 100 - 200 requests per hour.
I cannot switch to a SQL type product as this would break my desktop app (proprietary BTree/Random Access architecture)
I am leaning to writing an HTTP server in VB.NET (there are many examples available and even some components).
I'm about to embark upon learning how to create a web site(in fact I am about to create a website for our company) which will enable users to place an order on our system. I already have a desktop, C# WPF, application that has some of the classes I am going to require in the MVC architecture of this new website. Can anyone advise me of the best practise to reuse these classes in the website. If I was going to create a new app I would refactor the classes out of the desktop app into a class library then add this to my new app by adding an existing project (my class library) to my solution but that option does not seem to exist in creating a website?
I am developing one Intranet Que type project for a small Travel agency. I need one logic to route the customer que over all sales agent so anyone once free he will be buzzup to pickup the customer till here is Okay. But i need some timeout if no sales agent pickup the Que it will forward to the supervisor. Now here is my Question should i make a small desktop application and run in server to moinitor the time and forward the task.... or Is Web Service is suitable for this? (Forward means just it will update one field of table so it will start displaying in Supervisor screen.)
Is there a way to make a desktop application easily interfaceable via Web ? Meaning, can you have a way to interface with a single desktop application as if you were remote desktop'd into the machine but not? I am looking at doing this in ASP.NET or Silverlight.
I have just started learning C#. Can anyone explain the technical differences between a .Net desktop application and a web application? I mean for example, if I have a simple HelloWorld application using a WinForm, what are the steps required to change that into a HelloWorld web application?
Is it possible to connect to a Remote Desktop from my ASP.net (I easily done it in .net windows application with a 4 line code and"Windows Terminal Service Control")application, If so can you guide me through it. Many thanks in advance.NB:I want to achieve it without using ActiveX control that work in IE, because with that every client would have to use IE and install the control.
I am trying to develop a web application(Using ASP.NET and c#) that uses a specific database hosted on web server. I will have another desktop application that will use a local database. Both databases have same structure and data at start up. Then databases will change when users add data to web application and an employee adds data to the desktop application. 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?
I would like to embed a Remote Desktop session within my browser. I must use remote desktop because my clients can't install any additional software on the server.
Here are some problems that I can already foresee:
1) I believe that I can embed an RDP ActiveX control, but then all I could support is IE. And even then, IE lockdown may forbid ActiveX controls.
2) I don't know anything about Apple computers, but I presume that they don't inherently run RDP?
3) I think there are ways to run RDP through a Java control. I don't have experience to know if this is a good or bad idea. I suppose that Java may even be disabled on some browsers, but don't know if this is a common case?
I like to create a desktop widget framework using asp.net. its like yahoo widget or google widget any one able to create a simple widget application and plug in to this framework. how to develop this framework?
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.
I am trying to live stream my desktop over http to one or more users. The immediate goal is just to share the desktop in real time in read only mode for several users. In future we might allow the users to control the desktop as well by mouse or keyboard. I have these queries in this context- Is HTML5 + H.264 right for this or do I need to go with Flash?In either case what are all the components/servers I need for a live streaming infrastructure? (Like desktop, encoder, streaming server, web server, media player etc)? It will help compare the options, if You can post your preferences for each of these components/servers.
Is it possible to invoke/execute a particular desktop application why entering an URL in the browser. i.e, when a specific request is executed on the browser, our desktop application should be invoked.
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?
