Q : when i write a program does my client have to have .net Framework? \ can't i write independent program without asking my clients to download .net Frameworks?
A : No
actualy you don't write program from scratch in .net framework you use (FCL)Framework Class Libraries , and engine
so your project will not run untill you provide the engine and the supportive libraries ,
as well as the programs that made with java need JVM to be running on your computer , the programs that you will write in VB.net need .net framworks to be running on your system

Q : My Project doesn't save!! , When i run my application i can edit my database but when i stop debugging i find my database records still the same with no changes?
A: Actualy you have 2 databases not one
the origional one in the project folder (that you see in your IDE)
the second one in your projectFolder/bin/debug folder , its just for testing
every time you run your application the testing database will be replaced by fresh copy from the origional one so every time you debug you lose the previous changes
so you have some options to be able to see your database changes
1) see your changes in the database that lies in debug folder not the one in your project folder
2) select your database in your solution explorer and go to properties tab >> copy to output folder property >> select copy if newer
like that you stop the new copy every time you run your project , so willb be able to see your previous changes as long as you didn't change your database design, but still can't see the changes in the origional database in your solution explorer , the changes have been make to the copy in the debug folder

Q: is it possible to do Reporting in visual C# Express Edition?
A: unfortunatly V C# EE (IDE) doesn't support Crystal Reports and dosn't support Add-ins. so that you can't add reporting tool to your IDE .
there is a reason for that , reporting is a profesionals work but EE IDE meant to be a light weight version for students only , if you want this ability you can upgrade to higher version of visual studio,
but there are some ways to do reporting for learning purpose not for professionals work, so you will find most of them not trivial thing and inconvenient so you can't depend on them for production
show crystalreports in EE windows forms but you can't design reports in EE just showing it
very good thread about reporting in EE, actualy its the best way

Q: How do I create a setup project for my C# application?
The only supported setup mechanism within the Express Editions is ClickOnce which allows you to deploy your application to a web server or be distributed via CD or disk as well as support automatic updating after it is in the hands of users.
While ClickOnce is good for most simple applications and installations it does not provide the same level of control that you have with standard Visual Studio created Setup projects that are available in Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition or higher. In cases where more control is needed it can be a good idea to build ones own setup program externally of Express with free products such as:Wednesday, June 21, 2006 7:29 PM
