I want to use my SQL Server Database application on sharing basis. I just added an mdf from Add New Item, made table and then connected with my application using datasets.
I donot have network to test. I want to know if this application will work fine on a network (I will just share the folder containing my application files and mdf file and make a shortcut to application exe on network computer. I use this method for Access database and it works fine. Will it work for mdf also?

Also, do I need to install SQL server on client computers too or it is enough to install on main computer containing database?


1 solution

This will work .....
but this not correct style ....
you should make centered database and pass connection string in application ,
and install this application on all client side .

Will there be any disadvantage of it?
Also you mean I should provide user the database
And user attach them to server instance? I also need to
Give passwords?
Could u advise connection string for client application?
Can I use .\sqlexpress in my connection string?
I think this is always there when SQL server is installed. Right?
