A project developed in Delphi 6 / 7 using Diamond Access and storing data in mdb databases needs to be converted to storing the data in MS SQL (MSDE Desktop engine and MS SQL Server). 7 Tables (ini, 4 info tables, 2 cross-reference).
Serious bidders can get access to the database.
The project must still also be able to access the mdb files ie, the current connection using diamond access will be kept. I am open to suggestions regarding a different db connection than diamond access, as long as it is faster and allows true multi-user access.
I have now received 14 bids with prices varying from 300 to 1000 USD.
Following info to all bidders. I have set up three machines that can be conncted to remotely. The first machine is a windows XP PC with Delphi 7 (german) installed. All necessary components are installed and this will be the development machine. The freelancer can access this machine day and night, but all compilations and linking must be performed on this machine. The freelancer will sign a non-disclosure agreement before any work is done.
Should you have problems with Delphi 7 german I will gladly install Delphi 7 in english on the machine (this the freelancer must provide as I only have the german version. It will be deleted off the machine once the project is finished).
This project is an initial project, further modifications will be made to the product. If I am happy with the successful bidder then about 6 - 8 further projects on this product and others are possible.
Experience in Virtual Treeview and Shell+ would be advantageous.
The second and third machines are clean XP in english and german with ms office 2k3 installed. On these the freelancer can test the program at will. These machines can be refreshed from an image at any time.
