So I've inherited this WinForms project for a customer who's a two hour drive away.
It's a fun project and a good customer, but the code quality is... It (mostly) works, let's leave it at that Laugh | :laugh:

What's worse though, is the manner of deployment.
Which is each work station one by one WTF | :WTF:
Software on a USB and go.
Of course a couple of people aren't at the office or have another work laptop at home.
In that case it's phone them one by one and update using TeamViewer.
Since I'm not going there for every update (which can be ad-hoc and unplanned) the phone and Team Viewer option is used frequently.

I wrote a little program that closes the application and then copy/pastes a newer version from a file server which also happens to be someone's regular computer.
That way I only need to copy/paste the new version to a single computer and everyone gets the new version.
That sounds great except not everyone has file access to that computer (even though it has all the reports and the database as well).

Seems like I'll be updating individual workstations for a while... Sigh | :sigh:
Any sort of version control wasn't present until now, so everyone has version 1.0.0.0, but they can still be different code bases (but the individual code bases can never be recovered unless you do some reverse engineering).

Time to bring some change around here! Big Grin | :-D
