    hi all
    i am using VS 2005
    i want my application when installed to make sure that my database is instaled on sqlserver if not than my application should create the datbase itself
    my friend told me to write the code that create the datbase and the tables
    ( CREATE DATABASE var1 .........) in the class install
    but i have more than 8 tables and that will be a long code to affect it to the SqlCommand
    so is there any other way to make my application create the database when installed

    hope someone help or tell me some forums which could help me

    regards ,
    warid

    you can just write the database creation code once in a txt file and run it on install. I would also recommend the 'create if not exist' option so you dont overwrite existing tables.

    im more used to mysql so im not sure how to do it in mssql sorry

    This is just an aside, at this point, but basic stuff like CREATE should be exactly the same.

    It's when you come to stuff like LIMIT/TOP and RAND() and foreign keys things may be a bit different, not to mention stored procedures and all of that jazz.

    Yeah, but make sure that the user running the application has the right rights to be able to execute sql commands on SQL Server or whichever one you're using.


    That's a big problem for my team since they won't give us all the rights we need.


    But in your case, at least it is easy to use the "script to" command in the database server and copy the raw sql needed to make a table that already exists, then repeat for all tables.

    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)
