I am new to this forum, I have Vb.net application with Sql server 2012 database. I have procedure at first page load to check the available SQL servers in the network and connect to it.
I am trying to publish this application, I am planning to have SQL server install in server manually, then i need to have CD contain the application so the client can install it in any PC and run the program. At first run it will search automatically in network and connect to the SQL server.
When I did publish and tried the installation it gave me error "The application required that assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo version to be installed in the GAC". I don;t need to install the SQL server in this PC, because I have it already installed in other PC on the network.
Can you help me to deploy/publish this application please.
