I am very new to VB.NET. That said, I have developed a windows form that utilizes an SQL Server back end.
I am developing using Visual Studio 2008 and the 3.5 Framework. The SQL server is 2005.
I do not have any warnings or errors, and the project compiles without error. When I run the install package on another computer, everything appears to install correctly, and the shortcut is placed on the desktop. However, when opened, the cursor goes into wait mode for a few seconds then returns to normal and the form does not open.
I am using windows authentication for the SQL server, and the user of the other computer is the owner of the database I am developing for, so that person has access. I am using the following when making a connection to the SQL server:
Dim cnnSQL As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(My.Settings.ConnectionString)
The settings for the Connection String are:
Data Source=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;Initial Catalog=Project1;Integrated Security=True; Timeout = 60
I receive no errors and have no clue as to why it will not run. I have verified that the other system has the 3.5 SP1 framework installed.
Any advice/assistnace to get this application deployable would be great.
