The simple answer to your question below is that you do not have to install DevForce on the client machine. Nor does VS 2005 need to be running on the client. You simply have to copy the necessary DevForce DLLís to the appropriate folder (or folders) on the client machine. I will explain how to do this in general.
You typically have two options:
- XCopy Deployment
- Use a Setup.msi
For very simple projects, you can copy all of the files into a single directory on the client machine. It is a little more complicated for an IIS deployment. For more complex projects consider using a Setup.msi.
I would strongly encourage you to run one of the Deployment tutorials before trying this yourself.
