I'm writing a windows forms application to be sold to small to mid-size corporations and be used by users on a LAN.
To make it easier for network administrators, I'm thinking of using .Net 3.5 SP1 and have the app running from a network share. This way, client installation is minimal (I know they must have .Net 3.5 SP1 installed).
Admin will install the app in a server, running a windows installer and then email the users the path to the network path so they can start using the app. The alternative is to have the admin install the app in hundreds of PCs, which I try to avoid. Every time I update the app , admin has only to re-install it in a single server.
I want to get your opinion if you used such deployment, what the pitfalls are and what should I be aware of.
Thanks in advanced.
