Let's take a custom-made .NET application :
- Dependency on the .Net Framework
- A few dlls and an executable
- A few dependencies on third parties (Crystal Reports, Connector, etc.)
What are the technical disadvantages of installing this kind of application. on a network share or drive, and allow multiple users to use it at the same time on a windows domain ? I'm looking for usage issues, not deployment issues.
I know that it's not the best case scenario, and that, auto-updatable local installs, TS sessions and other means are now available for this situtation, but I'd like to have a clear and deep answer to discourage such way to install applications across a network.
