Like Dave we use a pure xcopy deployment to bring our application to customers - without the need to install deployXX.exe.
With TD 7 we found two problems:
1. gailwrapping didn't work.
2. error "Internal memory has become invalid..." when exporting Grids to Excel (via SalGridDataExportEx())
I made a case for this and got this information from Gupta:
I found the dlls on my TD-PC in folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Gupta\Team Developer 7.0\netbinInstall of deployment does AFAIK nothing on the registry this is what is done see bellow. TD 7 does not use olexlsf.dll anymore and use Syncfusion .NET assemblies to import/export from/to Excel.
- assemblies are not GAC register but exist in the deployer.
For application using QuickGraph:
For application using SalMail:
For application using Web Reporting:
For application using GAIL:
For TD 7.0 application export grid data to Excel (import from Excel):
We don't use QuickGraph, SalMail and Web Reporting, but after copying this files into the apllication folder of our customers the problems with gail and Excel are solved.
