How to run.NET and also SQL Server in USB thumbdrive?
Exists a means to install.NET on a USB drive, pop it right into an equipment and also get.NET working without in fact mounting it on a customer is neighborhood equipment?
I am additionally attempting to identify just how to do the very same for SQL Server. Is it also feasible?
I pick up that the demand to "install". NET & SQL Server to a USB drive has something to do with the expenses of mounting them to the hd (dimension, documents, etc). Mounting these to a USB is not practical, growth - sensible. Why not construct a Virtual COMPUTER rather?
No, its not feasible for factors mentioned by others below.
Your best choice is to require.NET to be mounted, and afterwards run your.NET application from the thumbdrive.
If you require SQLServer yet do not wan na install that monster you can make use of SQL Compact (consisted of in.NET) and also store the data source in the very same folder on the thumbdrive.
I assume the solution will certainly be No.
Anything else would certainly be a significant hack,. NET install updates all type of points in the system, and also its loader thinks those points remain in area (as an example GAC exists, area of compilers, IIS/IE/ ... assimilation).
