Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Moved the database, changed the connection strings, attached the database, had to create 32-bit ODBC for this particular app, and got a login screen - success.

    How do I create an instance of application server that runs as a service on startup?

    Re: MIgrate v10.5 Application to Azure Cloud

    Nate,

    Sorry for the newbie questions, but "database move" like physically moving the file to the new server and attaching to newer version of SQL? Or is there more involved like changing pointers in the DB?

    Here is the error that I get when I try to open the same workspace in Windows 2012 server. Should I be using Windows 2008 instead? Did I miss something during the install?

    You could use something like Navicat to move the database. If they're using that old of an OS, then the SQL v. must be very old as well - would have to test a newer - support version of SQL Express, Web, Standard.

    Migrate v10.5 Application to Azure Cloud

    Have a charity client that would like to use the Azure cloud to run their app going forward, but I have little experience with Alpha 5. It appears that they use an SQL based database with Alpha Application Server as their front end. How would I get the app migrated from the current Windows 2003 Server to Azure cloud? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
