What if I want my deployed app GUI to run as SaaS (Software as a Service)

Post by tonybbb »

Product, version and build:
PowerShell Studio 2020 - 64 bit
Windows 10 64 bit OS

I am trying to deploy my application as a service, but the GUI won't display?

I am not certain what you mean by deploying it as Software as a service. This has a wide range of definitions, including as a subscription based application or a web hosted application.
From your question it can also mean that you attempt to use the Windows Service packaging option, assuming 'Service' means SaaS, which it does not.
If I misunderstood your question please provide more detail on what you are trying to accomplish.

I was assuming that packaging the program as a service would be necessary to offer it as a cloud based service. I gather from your response so far that it does not.

Is there a particular configuration in PowerShell Studio to deploy SaaS, or is that something that needs to happen earlier or later in the process?

That would require you to define what your understanding of SaaS in this context is. The option clearly states "Windows Service", so no, that has no correlation to SaaS.
If you are talking about a web hosted application, Windows Forms is not what you are looking for. I am also not certain PowerShell would be right tool for that.

Thank you.

I guess I will stand up an Amazon Machine Image then, and just install the product on that.
