I am a strong supporter of smart clients. They could not have been anything better than smart clients. Smart clients are the big thing for any of us developers who write code for the desktop.

Yes the last post was my 100th post. Nitin, a dear friend of mine who also is a blogger (got introduced by Tejas) did ask me some time ago why I stopped blogging.

Questions which are on my mind right now. Hope I can fill in results for these questions some time (hopefully soon)! 1. How can the bootstrapper model of deployment be applicable for merge modules (currently you cannot write a bootstrapper setup for a merge module) 2. How do you install your application using setup.exe (the bootstrapper) but launch ......

Mark whose team delivers WSE blogged today about WSE 3.0 RTM. Congratulations J We require to ship the WSE runtime as a prerequisite for our smart client app hence I had to evaluate whether we can use the bootstrapper installer to install WSE.WSE 3.0 installs the bootstrapper relevant packages which is sweet but I noticed that it does not support install ......
