hi there !!!
Lemme introduce myself to u first of all. Well I am Abhinav Gupta and have done MSc(Elect.) & MCA and presently working in a co. in Delhi on ERP project. More precisely, I am working on Oracle 8 & D2K 5. Well, I have got a problem which is how to make an exe of the D2k projects.

In other words, the problem is to make a setup.exe of the software which has been made for a company. By 'setup.exe', I mean that the GUI we usually get when we wanna install some Microsoft Product in which we just have to press OK button again & again.
As we have to keep one thing in our mind that the client is totally illiterate as far as the Computer knowledge is concerned.
The thing is that I want to distribute my project/application as a auto run cd, such that if anyone wants to install my sw, one just has to insert the CD in the CD rom drive and there is no need to make DNS and copying forms & reports manually.All these tasks must be automatic.

What my superiors want out of me that all the tools require to run the sw made by us got installed just by inserting an auto executable CD and by following the on screen instructions. They also want that the D2k runtime gets installed alongwith and the respective icons also get placed on desktop etc.
Kindly show me the way.......

The second thing is that I want to attach help files or help tags along with the fields of my forms made in D2.But, I do not know the solution exacltly.
kindly mail me asap and help me out if anyone knows the solution.
Hoping to get a positive response soon

Thanking you in anticipation.

Abhinav Gupta

Hi Abhinav,

I am working at Hyderabad and seem to find myself with the same problem, that is, integrating the help files created in robohelp 2002 with d2k - would be a great favour if you could share any solutions to this problem.

Regards,
Sri

Hi
For the Autorun feature to be used in the CD. U have to write a .INF file residing in the parent directory of the CD. This will be created in the Notepad with the following text.

[[Autorun]]
open=Appication.exe

This Application file contain both the instaled for Application and Forms Runtime.

If u have got another solution pls let me know this.

P'haps it will solve ur problem.

i am presently developing project in Oracle 8i. Forms and reports are being developed in 6i. I have to instal my project directly from CD to the client PC. we are using application server 9i. i want that all the forms and reports alongwith procedures/packages must get installed through one button. User should install all the above with pressing one button like window software. Foer which my requirement is How to create an Executable file which can install all these in a proper directory. Please send the solutions at the earliest as presently we are doing it manually.
