I am trying to create a project (c#, .net) where I can start running SQL's targeting my Informix database directly without the client sdk being installed on the machine.
I know there are a set of managed and unmanaged dlls that are the dependencies I will have to counter with.
Is there any way I could get to as close as possible to a xcopy deployment solution for my .net application?
I don't mind running regsvr32 commands / .reg files prior to the setup, I just don't want to go through the msi installer and want to controller the deployment.
I am guessing the rest of the configuration like the host, protocol, service, etc can be defined in the .config file.
