Installing a VFP application on a network
Save to folder
I want to install an application developed in VFP 5 onto a network server, and enable users to be able to install the application anytime in the future, from the network installation, so that they are using the application and database off the network. This is acheived with MS-Access by running SETUP with the Administrators option (/A) to install it on the network drive, then a user could install the application by running SETUP from the network drive and selecting Workstation installation, which would install the DLLs, OCXs, icon, etc, to run the application off the network.
VFP does not seem to provide this facility. When I try to do SETUP /A it says SETUP does not support this option. An invalid option reveals all options available (/A is listed) as well as a /Y which "installs without copying files".
Does anyone know how I can acheive the network installation I'm after, perhaps by getting /A to work, or does anyone know just what the /Y option does?
