Hi Everyone,

I have a real time situation. Our company has 15 Terminal Servers for each region plus one Databse server.

We are planing to resign the old application which is written in vb.6 and vb 5.0 . Some application use com+.

I am in a suitation which way i should go. That is Web application or Windows Application.

The application fucntionalities are as follows.

1. Application use all finacial information. Which suppose to feed all day today sales and run lot of reports.

2. Send messages to stores and track the actions. These messages are send via word documents.

Those are the main application.

I have a feeling if i go for web solution I want be able to get the full contrll of the application. In addtion to that web server issues. Too many depndencies.

Also think of deployment as well. One reason to go for web apps is that you just deploy it to one web server and you maintain it from there.

There has been an advent in the form of "Click-Once deployment", which means that now you can hold an application centrally and when the user loads the application, it automatically updates.

If you want speed, go for Windows Apps as they will utilise the desktop of the user, whereas a web application has to do all of the processing.

I hope this helps.
