Desktop Software get installed on your computer. It may work online or offline. A desktop application can be designed to work for single user or multiple user. Desktop software doesn't require web browser to run unlike web applications, where as it installs on the operating system and runs as a stand-alone software. Desktop software developed dedicatedly to run on a specific operating system such as windows operating systems. But some cross platform technology provides ability to develop software which can run more than one operating system like windows, linux and mac.

How much time requires to develop a desktop software?

It totally depends on the requirement, project scope, number of features and complexity level. We estimate the time of development in number of working hours. We work 8 hours per day and 5 days a week. So if we are providing an estimate of 100 hours, then it leads to 12.5 working days. That may spread around 3 full weeks, because one week has only 5 working days.

How you get understanding what client needs?

We gather all possible information about current system, what it does, limitation of it and what are the changes you want to implement in new system. Then we design a wireframe and shows to client. Once both parties (client and development company) get agree then we continue to next stage.

Can the same desktop software be installed on the window and mac

Generally, No.

It depends on which programming language and platform the software has developed Some cross platform development tools provide this feature, to code once and deploy for different kind of OS.

C# and VB.Net, Winform and WPF are not cross platform and it produces the software that can run on the Windows OS only Whereas there is a mono liberary exists that can compile C# code to work for linux and other platform.

Microsoft has announced MAUI that advertises a technology where you can code once and deploy it to all operating systems. It is in it's early ages, we are waiting for its stable version to be released.

Can I use desktop software on Mobile or iPad?

No. Desktop software specially designed to work on desktop computer only.

Can a multi user software work as offline software too?

Yes, For that you need to have a server computer where you can install your RDBMS. You have to install the software on all client's PC and point the database to DBMS server.

Can a single user software work as online software?

Yes, Database can be hosted over shared hosting or cloud server provider. It doesn't matter for the software that one user is using or multi user. For the software perspective it is already treated as multi user.

What about security?

If the desktop software is working offline than it may have installed on the local pc or on a local server in that case client has to deal with the security themselves, because if someone will be able to breach the network and windows security then they can stole all the data from your computer including data of your custom desktop software.

If the desktop software is working online then the dbms service provider is responsible for the security.

There are a several steps and techniques that can be implemented to protect or encrypt communication between software and database. It depends on the scale of the software.

What if you will not be available for further service support?

We deliver the custom software and it's coding also. So if in future we are not available to assist you, then you can hire somebody else who know dot net technology. With the help of code anybody can provide further service and support.

Where the data to be saved?

Data saves in a RDBMS (relational database management system) of your choice. like MS SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite etc.
