Posted By: Ram     Posted Date: September 05, 2015    Points:5   Category :Windows Application

I had developed windows application with C# and converted to EXE file.When i install that exe to windows 7 i got this error when i run that project.

"Failed to update database "c:\Program Files\Test\Test.mdf" because that database is read-only."

but if we install with windows xp it is working good.

Can any one please help me it is very urgent?

Hi Ram,

Kindly change your database access rights to normal mode as following steps

1. Open SQL Server Query window from the SSMS
2. Write a query and execute it


Use [DatabaseName]
Alter Database [DatabaseName] set Read_Write with No_Wait

After, executing the above query your database will change normal mode.
