We have an old client/server application which we cannot modify further since the developer is no longer available and dont have the source.
We would like to rewrite the application in visual basic. In more details:
* For now we just want to develop the existing functionality of the system. More to come later.
* We want to keep the database backend as it is now(with data), which is SQL server 2000. I can easily provide a script to reproduce the database with some data.
* I can also provide screenshots of the existing system / or even the system itself to make the development easier
* The system is around 6 main screens to manage the following
* Company info and address
* Showroom details
* Contact person details
* Target info
* Maintain company connections
* search screen for companies
It is desirable that the developed system can read active directory in order to authenticate the user and not require a username and a password.
i can easily provide screenshots of the system to be produced in order to aid in development but also on cost evaluation.
