A friend of mine had to do something similar...<BR><BR>I believe what he did was create create client-side vbscript code (which is exactly the same as what I'm used to in server-side ASP) and DHTML. This way, he managed to create an interface for his database that was to be distributed on CD and viewed on Internet Explorer...<BR><BR>I guess this solution would require you to recode everything though :(<BR><BR>Not very practical ...<BR><BR>
Use a DSN-less connection string. Make sure that the files are put from the CD onto the local machine inside the inetpub/wwwroot directory, make sure the local machine has IIS installed, check permissions on the directories to ensure that the IUSR_MachineName account has write access to the database. Of course, this all flies in the face of what web development is for. You're basically turning it into client-server.
Isn't there a stand alone IIS that can be installed onto a CD or something of that nature? I read not that long ago that there is a version of IIS that you can install onto a CD through Microsoft.
May have need of doing this in a few months. Was going to make a completely VB-based solution, using the browser control for display. However, this integration of the objects may be useful.<BR><BR>Have to read that further. Cheers Xanderno.<BR><BR>Craig.
