I am developing application in VB.Net (dot net framework 4.0) and SQL Server 2008 R2.

Will it work sucessfully on thin client machine ?

Minor Edit for Grammar.


Yes it will. It depends how which architecture you choose for your application. Usually all the business logic runs remotely on a server and the client only deals with the UI.

Have you considered Smart Client?

Building Smart Client using .NET[^]

Smart client bridges the gap between pure thin client and rich client. Developing smart client applications in using .net is fairly easy.

Good answer.

Good Call.
If you are willing to switch environments, you could also take a look at Delphi[^].

With delphi you will often be able to deploy your application as a single executable. DevExpress VCL Controls[^] and RemObjects DataAbstract[^] are suites that complements each other, and allows you to create powerful applications with a minimum of effort.

It's an alternative, and to be able to deploy your solution as single executable without requiring .net, ocx'es, is often a compelling reason to at least evaluate this development environment.

It's just a thought...

Dear valery possoz and Espen Harlinn
Thanks for your reply.
To reduce the cost of Hardware at client I plan to use Thin Client machine (without some hardwares like HDD)
