Windows 2000 client/server to Web server/Web browser RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to convert a Windows Server 2000 Client/Server application that communicates with it's associated desktop application (developed i think using .Net 2.0 or 3.0 Framework) to a Webserver/Webbrowser application?

    Meaning, a user will now have the ability to physically connect his laptop using an Ethernet cable to the embedded computer's Ethernet port and use http to access the information. In other-words, the user  can now use any web browser instead of a desktop application to access the data displayed as tabs in the web browser.

  • Hi Sastph,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    As far as I know, it looks like cannot directly convert the desktop application to the web browser application. You can develop the desktop application and web browser application separately, then use the same database.

    For more detail information, please provide the project type that you created those application and we will help you redirect to the appropriate forum for more professional support, since our forum is to discuss the .NET Framework Setup and Servicing, and your issue is more related to the development issue.

    Thank you for your understanding and have a nice day.

    Best regards,
