running desktop application on browser RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am a desktop developer. I have a thin client application which retrieve and update data from SQL server database on a web server. application uses webservice to connect the database, retrieve and update records.

    now i need the application to be run directly from browser so that we can provide link to users and we do not need to install application on each client.

    Can it be done?

  • A desktop app is not going to run in a browser. You need a web app for that.

    As far as web app deployment is concerned, please consult the experts in the forum linked below:
