VB Deployment (with DB)
I've created a new app in VB.net 2008 that I need to deploy (via download would be best). I need it to do run through a setup (like the click once feature) but I also need it to prompt during the install a location for it to copy the database to (MS Access DB it runs off) and then copy the db to that location.
Can anybody offer any advice on this? The idea is to have a local app, but so the database can be installed on a network drive.

If you 'publish' the application via Visual Studio (Or express) then you will get a network or net based installer like the one Google Chrome uses.
It might be best to then have a 'splash' page when you first run the program to prompt for the database location. Otherwise you would need to create a custom setup package.
