Right W3bbo. I could slog through all that. But wait I have a better idea. You are the person I need to do all of this in a flash--probably without even thinking twice--send me an email quoting a price to rent from you please to: email@example.com
I am a poor Greek in a bankrupt country so any concession you could make on price would be greatly appreciated. I actually do have a guy I am using in the USA (he helped load one of my Silverlight apps, which ran for about a week before somehow the permissions
changed on the folder it was running on and now it's inaccessible), and he's earnest, but lacks experience with programming and appears very overworked. I rather just use you. Also I need to be able to run databases on occasion in SQL Server Express. BTW
I figured out a trick the other day where the database, though a trick in the connect string ("Data Source=|DataDirectory|UserData"), can reside in a subfolder in the folder your database app runs in, which makes maintainace easier I imagine because you don't
have to copy the database into a central depository, but I digress.
You mention web config file, and once I did have to play with the switches and XML in one such file when I was doing a login page for ASP.NET, so I do have a vague understanding of the same, but below is a simple "Hello World" Web.config file, and as you
can see it's quite complicated looking (to me). A lot of this stuff is signing off on your executables with a public key so they can't be spoofed I think, and other such stuff, but to me it looks pretty daunting. There's a gulf between theory and practice
that you, having mastered both, can bridge. I myself was tickled pink the other day when I managed to build and then consume a 'web service' following an example in a textbook. But getting such a web service to run outside of localhost might be another matter
(maybe not, with your help)?!
