    Prepurchase question about VB.Net

    Where I work, we have several applications that are written in Visual Basic. It's been decided to keep them.

    The goal the company has is to put VB.Net on the server. Then when we hire .Net programmers, they all use the same version that is installed on the server. NO LOCAL INSTALL. The goal is that everyone uses the same version of VB with the same patch programs. Can the Enterprise version be on the server?

    The second question I have is that we have several old VB applications. Once the above is done, we want to upgrade the old applications to the latest version of VB that's installed on the server.

    Can the above be done.


    NOTE: Someone might say put it in the cloud. Where I work, going cloud is a little to advanced for management. So, putting things on the server is only option.

    You mention "the server" 5 times in your post without clarification of what its role is.

    If this is a server that the developers will connect to via Remote Desktop, where they then can run Visual Studio from inside that RDP session, then it should work. That being said, while I worked for many years at a company that provided RDP based application hosting, Visual Studio was not a program I recall any of our clients needing hosted, so I can't speak with 100% authority.

    If this is simply a file server with shared folders and the expectation is that the developer can just run something like \\ServerName\VStudioShare\VisualStudio.exe from any computer they want and it will function the same as if Visual Studio were fully installed on their own computer, then almost certainly not.
