Ok, so here is something that I have been trying to accomplish and am having some problems with figuring out how to do. I have built a messenger program that I would like to have operating on multiple systems and updating in real-time.

I have seen software, where the install package goes onto an (acting server) and the drive then mapped to another system leading to the path of the installed program.

Once the path has been established the user accesses the given folder through the mapped drive and runs the setup within the install directory on the mapped drive. Thus setting up a workstation, while all the data is stored on the (acting server)

If anyone would have some insight into how this is accomplished it would certainly be helpful in my endevour.

I am using visual studio 2008 (and also have 2010) for development as well advanced installer for the deployment. would it be better in this case to deploy through visual studio?

Thanks in advance
