The application can run form the Visual Studio 2012 environment, and when i copy the exe file to the share on the server it runs ok from my own PC.
BUT... whenever i try to start the program from any other PC, it starts, but keeps hanging in the Splash screen, and i can only end the program i Windows Task Manager.
I have also tried to publish the application from Visual Studio, like it's described in the manual.
Is this a Visual Studio 2012 problem ???

Look at the Event viewer to see if any warnings or error occur at the time of the issue.
Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Event Viewer

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 12:54 PMHow did you install the program on the other computers? You should run publish in VS to a CD. The CD doesn't have to be a cd. It can be any folder that you have write permission. After publish find the folder with "SETUP.EXE" in the root folder. Then copy the setup folder and all sub folders to a location that you can access on the other computers and install like any commercial software.

Fixed it !!
The application is using a data source name, and i have created this on my own PC.
The data source name is also created on the server where the application is copied to.
So, when i run the application from my own PC, it works, but when i run it from another PC it doesn't work.
Seems like i have to create a data source name on every PC that runs the application. I thought the appliation would use the data source name created on the server ???

I have involved the VB expert to further look at this issue. I am moving your thread into the Visual Basic Forum for dedicated support. Thanks for your understanding.
