A comprehensive resource for setting up, installing, maintaining, and distributing software written in Visual FoxPro, this guide will help developers launch a successful application deployment.
Ship it! Music to your ears or words that cause a cold sweat as you realize you now need to deploy the solution you have worked on for so long? Have you planned the deployment? Do you have the proper language in your contract with your customer? Do you have the proper install package? Do you even know what features your installer needs or how to use one of the many installers?
What media is the package going to be shipped on to the client? How will it be distributed? Is the customer even ready? What happens after Setup.exe finishes? Do you have the support infrastructure in place? How are you going to handle updates and changes?
There’s a lot to think about, and deploying a solution requires careful planning. These questions and many more are answered based on real world experience within the pages of this book.
