Client Server Installation Design


Good day,

The problem scenario is installing VB apps and updates on each computer (on each server pc and each client pc!).

I want to enhance this setup and implement a client server installation wherein the server will install the product from the server side alone and update to each client pc automatically (remove the manual labor of installing apps to each pc).

One way is to develop a utility to update the client's version and deploy the product.

* What approach or technology is the best way to resolve this problem (Winsock, etc.)?

* Is there any products or suggestions or recommendation that would help this scenario?

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Client And Server Installation (InnoSetup)
Hi all

I have made an application into VB 6. and a installation script using InnoSetup

My doubt is that i want to make two kind of installation modes, one in the Server Installation where have to install the app, and the other is the client mode, that i want to only install the DLLs and OCXs and to [bold]create[/bold] a desktop shortcut that points to the server machine.

Is this possible?


Thanks very much

Winsock, I Made A Server-Client... Now I'm Trying To Make A Server-Client+++
Trying to get this Winsock Chat thing to support more than 1 person. I don't know at ALL what to do... Could anyone push me in the right direction?

Also, I need help getting screen names to work as well. Thanks.

As you will see, I attempted to add multiple connections myself... I failed. =[

I'm using VB6.

Code:Option Explicit
Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long
Private Const EM_LINESCROLL = &HB6
Dim ClientNum As Integer
Private Sub cmdSend_Click()
    Dim strdata As String
    strdata = "Server : " & txtmsg.Text
    tcpServer(0).SendData strdata
    Text1.Text = Text1.Text & strdata & vbCrLf
    txtmsg.Text = ""
    SendMessage Text1.hwnd, EM_LINESCROLL, 0, 10
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim s As String
    s = InputBox("Server Port Number: ")
    tcpServer(0).Close
    tcpServer(0).LocalPort = s
    tcpServer(0).Listen
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Activate()
    txtmsg.SetFocus
End Sub

Private Sub tcpServer_ConnectionRequest(Index As Integer, ByVal requestID As Long)

    If Not tcpServer(0).State = sckConnected Then
        ClientNum = ClientNum + 1
        tcpServer(ClientNum).Close
        Load tcpServer(ClientNum)
        tcpServer(ClientNum).Accept requestID
        Text1.Text = "User has entered the server..." & vbCrLf
        SendMessage Text1.hwnd, EM_LINESCROLL, 0, 10
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
    MsgBox "Wanna-Be AIM"
    tcpServer(0).Close
End Sub
Private Sub tcpServer_DataArrival(Index As Integer, ByVal bytesTotal As Long)
    Dim strdata As String

Is Access Client Server?? What Is Client Server?
If I use visual basic to query an Access 97 database, this is what I find:

The SQL query only selects one number from a large table - ie the total info required is 4 bytes.

However, when I analyse the network traffic to my computer I find that 17,000 bytes get downloaded when running this query.

I am using ADODb connections and coding them manually in visual basic. I do not know if this is relevant, but my question is:

I thought using client server that all that went up the wire was the SQL statement and all that went down the wire was the resultant data.

Is this just Access? Does a query have a minimum package of 17,000 bytes? Anything I can do to make the performance better (as my application has to run over a 56K line)?

What about if I used SQL server?

Client Installation - Doubts About DLLs And OCXs
Hi

I want to make a "little" explation of what I'm trying to do:

I have created an install script using InnoSetup for an vb 6.0 application.

This script install the server part of my application that includes the typical stuff
- Create the application's directory
- Makes an icon from the desktop
- Install and register all the DLLs and OCXs
- Install MySQL ODBC 3.51

All works fine, but I'd like to make also a "Client Install" that only:
- Register the DLLs and OCXs
- Install MySQL ODBC 3.51
- Creates a shortcut in the desktop to the main file of the application (that's has been installed used the InnoSetup installation)




The problem is that I don't know how to make an Installation using Innosetup where there's not an "application" to install. So I have think to create an install application by myself that copy and register the DLLs, launch the MySQL ODBC 3.51 install application and creates the shortcut on the desktop.

I have thinked to copy all the DLLs/OCXs to the Windows' system directory and then registry all that dlls. I don't know much about how DLLs and versions work, so I don't know well what I can do when exists an previous or newver version of one of the DLLs on the system

Could you people give a few advices of how make this?
Is this a good idea? Can I check the Version of an DLL from VB code?


Thanks very much

We have a system running on client side..

The problem is that, whenever we have some enhancement done to the old system, we will create a new setup file and we will uninstall the previous version and install the new one..

Is there any way like just can copy some .dll files and automatically it will apply all the changes?

Trouble Connecting From .NET 2.0 App On Win2000 Server Client To Remote SQL Server 2005 DB
Hi,

Has anyone experienced similar problems trying to connect under the stated configuration? Were you able to resolve?

This looks like some type of security or permissions issue on the client side but I don't know where to start looking. The login is correct and I don't have any issues when the client is XPSP2.

Additional info:

The Windows 2000 Server client is running SP4.
The 'Data Link' application used to configure the connection string from the client tests successfully.
Can't even connect as Administrator from the client.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Using Faxcomexlib To Create An XP Fax Client Using Windows 2003 Server As Fax Server
1) Can anyone help me clarify the syntax for computer name when the FaxServer and remoteFaxClient are deployed within a domain?

2) If item 1) above is not the problem then does anyone have suggestions on how to properly setup the Fax software (remote Fax Client and the Fax Server)?

The following code works fine for creating a local FAX Client on XP and Windows 2003 Server. However, I want to use the XP node as the Fax Client and the 2003 Server node as the FaxServer.

Whenever I try to use the XP node as the remote Fax Client ot the Windows 2003 Server FaxServer, I get the following error code:

Error -2147024894 (80070002)

This error occurs on the line where the faxjob is submitted. I get the same error on both fax sumissions (JOBID and sumbission without retrieving the JobID):
    'submit and get JovID
    JobID = objFaxDocument.ConnectedSubmit(objFaxServer)

    ' submit without retrieving the JobID
    'objFaxDocument.Submit (objFaxServer.ServerName)

I am wondering if I am using the correct name for the FaxServer. The computer name is "medserver" but the full name (path and computername) is "medserver.domain1.local". I tried using "\medserver", "//medserver", "\mdeserver.domain1", "\medserver.domeain1.local" and I still am not able to connect to the server and send the test fax. Using a blank name for the FaxServer "" or using the local computer name while running the Fax Client VB routine local to the Server works just fine. I get through the connection call but I get the 80070002 error when I submit the fax from a remote Fax Client to the FaxServer.

Installation Of Visual Basic Setup File Without Oracle Client
Hello,
           I m very disturbed with this problem and I want its answer as soon as possible,
 My problem is that:-

I had designed a software by using the tool Visual Basic (Front end) and oracle (Back end). The system in which I developed this software has Visual Basic and oracle 9i client. Oracle 9i server is installed on server where there is a database whose name is deseinin. I created the entire table in this database. Then I had created its setup file with the help of “setup and deployment wizard”. When I m installing it on the system which has Oracle 9i client, my software is working but. When I m installing it on the system which don’t have oracle 9i client. It is get installed but when I m using(running ) on the installed system it is giving following error:

Run time error ‘-2147467259 [80004005]’

" The oracle(tm) client and networking components were not found. These components are supplied by oracle corporation and are part of the oracle version 7.3.3.(or greater) client software installation.

You will be unable to use this provider until these components have have been installed. "

    I did the database connectivity by using ADODC control and the code that I had written to make the connection and database access is like this:

Dim cn1 As New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs1, RS2 As New ADODB.Recordset

Private Sub cmbdname_Click()
cn1.Open "trouble_dsn", "scott", "tiger"
RS2.Open "SELECT * FROM SYSTEM1 WHERE DEPT='" & Trim(CMBDNAME.Text) & "'", cn1, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic, -1
RS2.MoveFirst
CMBSNO.Clear
While Not RS2.EOF
CMBSNO.AddItem (RS2(0))
RS2.MoveNext
Wend
RS2.Close
cn1.Close

End Sub

Note: Trouble_dsn is a system dsn that I had created througn DataSource(ODOD).

Please give me the solution of this problem as soon as possible to my email id rsinha_0108@yahoo.co.in

Retrieve A Picture Stored In .MDB Via A Server (Client/Server)!!!
Hi
I have made a quick search over here (in the forum) ending up with failure to find an answer to my question.
Well the problem is like this
(Client/Server Applicatoin)
Client will keyin a user name and password to connect to the server and retrieve his information including a (picutre) and the server will send the information including the picture which will appear to the client with the other information.

Now, I want to insert the picture into MS Access file .MDB along with the other information in a table (the picture will be of an OLE type, since this is the only way that I know we can include a picture), then be able to send to the client and display in the screen along with the rest of the information.

So, anyone can help, I failed to do so. I can transfer information (not including a picture). I know that we can achieve this goal by treating the picture as binary or so.... I am not sure actually about the concept. If anyone can help or can give me a piece of code that can assist me in this.

Server DLL, Under MTS, Running On Server, How To Msgbox To Client Machine???
Ok, I have a server DLL runniong under MTS on a serever. This server has msgbox's in it I know bad...how do I get these msgbox's to appear on the client machine, since the server is in another building
Don't give me grief about msgbox's and dll's...I know. It's not my code, nor my dll...I need a quick fix, can recode it at a later date.
All I need is for the msgbox's to appear on the client machine...
We are running NT Server 4.0

Winsock Query - Server To Client Messages Having Already Received Messages From Client
Hi,

I posted this onto VB Newbies but maybe it's a more intermediate query.

I have set up a client and server app so that many instances of client can connect to the server and send messages at the same time using Index=0 on the Winsock control on the Server.
However,

I want to send messages from server to client also - how can i do this since I get error message "Invalid operation in current state" when I try to connect from server to client - i need to get Winsock(0).State = connected and can't - do i need to name Winsock differently between 2 applications. I looked at www.winsockvb.com but can't find an answer to my problem.
My code on clicking command button on Server app is :

  Winsock(0).Close
  Winsock(0).RemoteHost = gstrIPAddress
  Winsock(0).RemotePort = Val(gstrPort)
  Winsock(0).Connect        'Seems like the connect isn't happening here - passes through it...

 gstrMessage = "Message to send"
If Winsock(0).State = sckConnected Then
    Winsock(0).SendData gstrMessage
    DoEvents
End If

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Virtual Server - Client Server Problem
I have a client server application which has an SQL database on the back end, a data server EXE on the data server, a middle and client tier (DLL and EXE) on multiple workstations.

This is a VB6 application that has worked fine for several years. I made some modifications and tried to re-install it for my client and it turns out that the client is now using a virtual server (VMWare) to host the SQL database and my remote object on that server. And I am now unable to get around a Permission Denied error.

Has anyone run into similar issues when migrating to a virtual server environment? I just need a sanity check here before I dig much deeper.

Thanks.

Basic Client - Server App. What DB Would Use Use On The Server?
If you were distributing a client server app to your customers, what server side DB would you use?

I have only just found out about MSDE...yea, yea...I know, I've been hiding in a hole for years

Basically I have a client server app that uses SQL Server 2000. My customers had to buy SQL Server for my product to work. Admittedly they use it for other stuff to.
I cannot expect every custoemr to fork out shed loads of cash on SQL Server just to run my app.

What DB would people use?

MSDE?
Access?
Fox Pro?

Any others?

Client Server - SQL Server In IP Location
Hi All,
We have developed a client/server application with sql server database. When the Server is located in the network application is working fine.When the sql server is hosted in IP location the application becomes very slow. Can anyone help me in figuring out this problem. We have doubts in the way we are connecting to the server - Connection string. Would client/server applications perform well with IP based databases?.
Also give me suggestions that will increase the speed of accessing my application.
Thankz in advance.

Client/Server -> Browser/Server
Hi,
My manager currently told me to research how to turn my client/server program into a browser/server program. He speaks only in Chinese, so he can't explain it to me, because my chinese isn't that great. I'm really new to VB, but I think I've gotten pretty good at it lately. I have a very vague idea of the difference of CS and BS functions. But I have no clue what he wants me to do.

My program, basically it's a library management system. It reflects everything that the software that the company is working on does. You can check in books, check out books, add a title, check for late fines, add a library member.. etc. It connects to a SQL Server 2000 database which stores book titles, loan histories, pending penalties, etc. Right now, the database exists on the same computer as the client application. Not sure what to do next.. I think the manager said something about having one database for all clients, so that any update made by one client program will be seen by the other clients.

Any help on this topic is appreciated.

Though old i still use SQl Server 7 as learning tool. I had SQL Server 7 installed on my system and the same was working fine. Suddenly one day i was unable to log in with my password. I received a message "Connection Open Unable to Login, no server exists"

I tried several time but was not able to rectify the same. Hence i thought uninstall was the final solution. Hence i finally installed the same from my computer.

Here also i got some error message that "sqlervr.exe was being used, access denied etc" still after 3 attempts the same got clean uninstalled by UninstallShield Wizard.

I did not remove the shared dll files that were on the system when uninstalshield asked me to.

The problem began when i began a fresh installation. But the same could not get installed.

1. IT started installation
2. Copied the files
3. Installed Data Sccess Components
4. Installed MMC
5. Started Service
6. Connection to Server -- failed
Re try 2 times them Installation fails.

I am attaching the text file (Zipped) that was created by SQL server.

Anyone please help me. I know fresh installation of Windows 98 can solve the problem but i want to know what is the actual problem. Why is the same not working though after installing.

Anyone out there can help me. Thanks to all in advance

Server To Client
I'm making a text-based game(or MUD).
I have a look command shown below that I made. The only problem is I made it intended for the server side of the game except I don't know how I would send all this information to the client...I accidentally made it intended as a client. Here:


Code:
Public Sub Look(User As String)
CurRoom = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Room", App.Path & "/Users/" & User & ".ini"))
'Gets the Current room the user is in and stores it in CurRoom
RName = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Name", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
'Gets the room name
DN = CLng(ReadINI("General", "North", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
DS = CLng(ReadINI("General", "South", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
DE = CLng(ReadINI("General", "East", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
DW = CLng(ReadINI("General", "West", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
DU = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Up", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
DD = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Down", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
'Takes the available rooms and stores the numbers in D(X) [X = Direction]
If DN <> 0 Then
DNname = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Name", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & DN & ".ini"))
If DS <> 0 Then
DSname = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Name", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & DS & ".ini"))
If DE <> 0 Then
DEname = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Name", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & DE & ".ini"))
If DW <> 0 Then
DWname = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Name", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & DW & ".ini"))
If DU <> 0 Then
DUname = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Name", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & DU & ".ini"))
If DD <> 0 Then
DDname = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Name", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & DD & ".ini"))
'Gets the names of each room next to the room you're in. (If there is one)
Des = CLng(ReadINI("General", "Description", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
'Gets the Current Room's description.
OnFloor = CLng(ReadINI("General", "OnFloor", App.Path & "/Rooms/" & CurRoom & ".ini"))
'Gets the variables on the floor and stores them in OnFloor.
If OnFloor <> 0 Then
Floor() = Split(OnFloor, ",")
'Splits all the Items after OnFloor= and stores each of them in the array Floor(X)
Text1.Text = RName & vbCrLf & Des & vbCrLf & "You Can Go:" & vbCrLf
'Shows the Room name and description.
If DN <> 0 Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & DNname & vbCrLf
If DS <> 0 Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & DSname & vbCrLf
If DE <> 0 Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & DEname & vbCrLf
If DW <> 0 Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & DWname & vbCrLf
If DU <> 0 Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & DUname & vbCrLf
If DD <> 0 Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & DDname & vbCrLf
'Shows the directions you can go.
If OnFloor <> 0 Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & "On the ground you see:" & vbCrLf
Floor = Split(OnFloor, ",")
For X = 0 To UBound(Floor)
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & Floor(X) & vbCrLf
'Shows everything on the floor.
Next
End Sub

Can someone tell me how I am going to make it somehow store all of this is a string or two or three and send it using Winsock.SendData? Thanks.

Server For More Than One Client
Is there any function in Visual Basic equivalent of C's fork()? I want to implement in Visual Basic a server using socket (WinSock), but I don't know how to inplement a server for more than one clients. Can anybody help me?
Thanks.

Server And Client In One
i am making a program and i want to have a chat in it. but so there is no need for a seprate server i would like a chat system that works as a server (listens on a port) and a client (used for ther chating)


example:

guy 1
and
Guy 2 want to talk

Guy1 types "hello" and clicks 'go'

Guy2's server part(because the program's server recieves and the client sends) recieves it.

Guy2 types "hi" and clicks 'go'

Guy1's server part recieves it.



can some 1 give me the code for this or an example file

Server/Client
Hey guys...round (lost count, think 4 or so) haha

Ok, Heres the setup...keep in mind the game of Risk and Battleship.

What I have made so far is like the game Battleship, where you have a map with a grid overlayed over it. I am using an image for the background, and a transparent image() on top of it for use with the array. Anyway, what I am up to is making it connect to be a server/client type of a program.

What I want is for the program to be on two dif ppls comps, say Joe and Bob. The information that I want to save (whats in the array), I want to be on like sort.com.

How it works:
You start the program, then sign on. When you sign on, I need it to download the latest information to populate the grid to show what player owns what square (this part is kinda like risk). I also want it to detect which players are currently connected. Those that are connected, and are close enough to each other, I want to be able to "attack" each other. Again, just like Risk. The actual attacking will be using the game of StarCraft on Battle.net, and after the game, they come back to my program (which should be running in the background) and the winner clicks that they won, and the looser clicks that they lost. I realize that this will make ppl trust each other...but its for a group of ppl I know and play with.

Anyway, my question (after a 1000 word essay, sorry about that), is what direction should I go. Winsock? Something else? I could use a lil direction pointing.

Thanks guys,
Sort

Attached is a small example of what I have so far...this isnt the finished version. Left that at work. &lt;kickdirt&gt;

Client/Server Help
Hi,

I have a client/server app. I have two way to install clients:

1. With a shorcut pointing to the server
2. Run app locally in client machine

I need to know if there are any way to know if my app is running from server or locally?


Thanks

Client-Server App ?
Hi,
I need to write a small information exchange application on a LAN. What category of programming does this fall into ? Is this what is called Client-Server Applications ? Is it possible to do it with Visual Basic ? How do I start off ? Thanks !

Client/server App
I know this is probably a very simple question, I am trying to write a client/server type app and am having trouble, I have written clientside apps before such as mail & telnet. but this is my first venture into the server side. This is the code I am working with...
Private Sub Form_Load()
Winsock1.Protocol = sckTCPProtocol
Winsock1.LocalPort = "8945"
Winsock1.Listen
End Sub

Private Sub Winsock1_Connect()
Text1 = Text1 & vbCrLf & Winsock1.RemoteHostIP & " connected"
End Sub

Private Sub Winsock1_ConnectionRequest(ByVal requestID As Long)
Winsock1.Accept requestID
End Sub

Private Sub Winsock1_DataArrival(ByVal bytesTotal As Long)
Dim strdata As String
Winsock1.GetData strdata, vbString
Text1 = strdata
End Sub


When the app launches it opens the port and listens, but when I try to connect to it remotely it does nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you

SQL Server Client
Hi!. Does anybody knows a SQL Server Client Tool made in visual basic that generate scripts in SQL? Thanks everybody, I'm new in SQLServer and I'm a little lost.

Client/Server DB
Hi,

Currently I'm working on a project, using Access 2003 and VB6. Well, I had read some threads asking about client/server applications and answers about this. Some answers that I had read said that shall write the application in two pieces. Now my doubt is do I have to write two applications (client and software) or do I have to write the application in two modules?

What things or elements do I have to consider when creating a client/server application?

When writing the application, do I have to add some libraries?

Can I install the application and the DB on the server and from there create a shortcut on the client machines?


Thanks in advanced,
TRONPR

Client Server In Vb6
hey guys i was just wondering.. i am using Microsoft SQL Server 2000 as my database and i am working on a project where networking is involved using primarily a router, which means i only want one database and more than 1 computer has access to it.

I know that i should have a server with my database on it.. I was just wondering if I should still program it like I have seen in winsock applications and sample chat programs or can I just share the database and have the other computers access it?

I have tried doing that with Access and works fine but when I use SQL Server it won't work. Please help hehe thanks.

Client Server APP

VB Code:
Private Sub cmdConnect_Click()winsock1.Connect "127.0.0.1", 1234cmdDisconnect.Enabled = TruecmdConnect.Enabled = FalseEnd Sub Private Sub cmdDisconnect_Click()winsock1.ClosecmdConnect.Enabled = TrueEnd Sub         Private Sub cmdMsgbox_Click()winsock1.SendData "msgbox"End Sub Private Sub Form_Load()cmdDisconnect.Enabled = FalseEnd Sub Private Sub winsock1_Connect()MsgBox "Connected"End Sub

MODULE FOR SERVER:

VB Code:
Public Function DoActions(X As String)Select Case XCase "msgbox"MsgBox "Heyah"End SelectEnd Function


It seems to connect.. But when I try to message the server, it comes up with

"Invalid operation at the current state"
