Thanks to the GE team for such a nice tool. I am trying to implement my own online store for our entire team.

Here is what I have done:
1. I have set up the online store along with the SQL database.
2. I have set up the GE online for the readers of the library.

These are working fine.

Now I am trying to use the GE off line tool to connect to this Online Store so that I can add more libraries and publish it back to the local online store.

I am not being able to connect to the local online store from the off line explorer.

Please HELP ME.

I think activity in this area is too little. Hope I could have got some response.

However there is a good news that I finally could connect from the smart client to my local store and also successfully published my own library.

But the bad news is that the online client is showing an entirely different set of guidance items. Can somebody help me? I updated the following entries in the web.config for the online client:

    <add key="OnlineStorageBaseUrl" value="http://localhost/GEStore/" />

      <setting name="GuidanceExplorer_OnlineGuidance_OnlineStorage" serializeAs="String">

Please help me.

I'm glad you got the thick client to work for you. What did you need to do to get it working?

Are you still having problems with the online client?

Yes, the thick client is working fine. The changes required were in the config file only. I added/changed the online store details in the config file with appropriate user credentials and it works. Thank you.

But the online client is still not working. The code is not commeneted at all to understand. Changes to the config file does not yield anything. I wanted to provide the offline client to the authors of the online store and provide the online client to the rest who need a read only view only. But it does not work that way. The online client (on top of SQL Server) is working fine otherwise.

I am still hopeful of getting some support in making the online client work for me.

I don't want to install the thick client in all the machines of the entire team. I shall like them to visit the online client and get the knowledge.
