We'll take a few moments to understand the process of remote user access...

When a user logs on from a remote location, he will go through am initial screening process before physically entering the secure realm of the LCS.

What I call the "secure realm" of your LCS is basically the part of the system that is sufficient in order to enable LOCAL user access. The rest of the system deals with security and availability....

NUKEleus - A DotNetNuke Installation Program

I'm a DotNetNuke(DNN) evangelist. Many a late night has been spent coding new modules, building skins, and not-so-patiently waiting for the next version to arrive. If I have any complaints about DNN, it is about the fact that DNN has a constant "under construction" sign on its door. It is never really quite finished, because as soon as one release comes out, some newer, cooler technology comes down the road, and off goes the core team to integrate it and bring it to the grateful minions. So can ...

Sandcastle is Microsoft's new tool for generating MSDN-style documentation from your .NET assemblies and in-code XML comments. More info here^. On 29 July 2006, they released the CTP, and the blog soon followed up with an 11-step manual process to generate the CHM file using their test class. It seemed easy enough to create a BAT script to accomplish all this automatically, however, there were a few issues that made this non-trivial. I've come up with a BAT script to automate this process, as we...

Asynchronous Setup Grid

If there is a need for a setup component that can read an XML setting file (SetupScripts.xml) and run methods or scripts defined in it asynchronously, then this Setup Grid component is what you are looking for. To use this component, the methods in an assembly, a batch file, or a path to a T-SQL file can be defined in SetupScripts.xml and we can call StartSetup() to execute them asynchronously. That means, when the setup is in progress, other operations are not suspended....

In my ambition to use this tool, I wanted to share the necessary steps I took to install the Visual Studio 2005 command line tool add-in created by Josh Ledgard from Microsoft. This tool is one of many that helps developers do their job from one workspace, namely Visual Studio. The download comes with both 2003 and 2005 command-line projects, but this article addresses only 2005. Hopefully your install goes well with the steps I offer in my article....

I needed a simple install program for a Shareware/Fairware program of mine, but I just couldn't find anything suitable for my needs. I wanted a reasonably automatic creation of an installation executable, but I didn't want to spend hours learning scripts or complicated setups. After a protracted search, I found a couple of nice programs that created SFX files (self extracting executables), but I either had trouble compiling them, or they just didn't behave the way that I wanted....

I had never before attempted to create a deployment project in Visual Studio. So, of course, the first time I was asked to do so, I also had to deploy the .Net Framework and MDAC as well! Why should my life be easy? Everyone has used Windows Installer at one time or another; it is how almost all Windows-based programs are installed today. You have used it if you ever added or removed a program in the "Add/Remove Programs" section of Control Panel. If you double-click on a file with the extension...

In September, 2001, Microsoft released a tool called Hfnetchk that checks NT 4, Windows 2000, and Windows XP systems and generates a report of which hotfixes need to be installed. While this is a great idea, the tool is a console-mode program and only prints out a list of Knowledge Base article numbers; it doesn't list URLs or take you to the Knowledge Base articles about the hotfixes....

This project is based on my Cabinet Library CabLib which is also published with source code on The Code Project.

The original purpose was to create an Installer or Setup which installs an ASPX server consisting of 3000 files. But obviously you can use this Installer to install any software package.

The installation files consist of only a tiny EXE file (the installer) and a CAB file which contains all files of the software package....

Creating an install MSI file is rather simple; however there is very little documentation about it, or it's choppy and sometimes too wordy. Well, the point of this article is to show you how to create the installer application, and how to make it launch your application after it has finished installing....

I'd like to begin by providing a brief background of services and their capabilities to put the forthcoming solution into context. Windows services are a feature of NT operating systems such as NT 4, Windows 2000 and XP. Services are not available on legacy "desktop" operating systems such as Windows 95, 98, and the short lived Me. They are analogous to the daemon processes that run on UNIX servers and workstations....

I recently ran into a problem where I required a self-extracting installer that would allow customers to download one single huge file in order for them to choose from a variety of setups or associated documents, like readme files or release notes. Consider a company that ships a product suite that is made up of different components like a server installation, a client installation, an administrative installation, and a command line tools installation. If each of those components has a separate ...

This is the second part of a two part article. This article assumes you have read and understood the techniques and concepts described in Part 1. In the previous article you saw how properly defining an UpgradeCode could be used to upgrade an existing application while preserving legacy files if needed. We also saw in the previous article that an upgrade does not work if you change the per-machine or per-user level between setups. We will look at one of several possible solutions to this potenti...
