I create databases using SQL SERVER 2005 Management Studio, I use the connection string from my database which look like this
conn = New SqlConnection("Data Source=*************;Initial Catalog=LandyParts;Integrated Security=True")
When I publish the application and run the setup on my pc the applications work fine and save information to the database as it should.
My question is if I posted the applications setup file as open source on a website and someone installed the application on there pc would the application work and would information save to the database provided, or does the database need to be on the users pc? OR is the database added to the winform application when I use the add data source wizard in Visual Studio????
Personnaly I think that the applications should run fine on anyones pc, but it does not hurt to ask.
Thanks very much
