Web server deployment

What is required on the web server to run an ASP.Net web application using SAP .Net Connector 2.0?

Running the SAP .Net Connector msi stops advising "You must first install the Visual Studio .Net 7.1 integrated development environment (IDE)." I don't want to install full blown IDE on server just to access the connector's functionality.

Pls advise.

    Answering my own question if anyone else is interested.

    I have resolved this by setting the Copy Local property against each of the SAP Connector references to True.

      On your production/live server, you would need SAP.Connector.dll in your /bin folder and also make sure librfc32.dll is in your /winnt/system32/ folder.

      That's the basics you need to run a SAP .NET Co 2.0 web app in production.

    You can freely deploy your SAP .NET Connector-based application within your company including needed SAP .NET Connector DLLs.

    This means that you need to ship your app with

    - SAP.Connector.DLL

    - SAP.Connector.Rfc.DLL

    - LIBRFC32.DLL

    in your application's folder.

    Or you install the two .NET assemblies on the target machine's GAC (global assembly cache) and LIBRFC32.DLL into System32.

    The effect of setting "Copy to Local" has the effect that the SAP assemblies are copied in your target dir. But note that this option can cause strange troubles in Design Time.

    Please also note that you cannot distribute SAP DLLs outside of your company.
