    Hi @marzban hadian , Welcome to Microsoft Q&A,

    You don't need to download visual studio in a production environment. You only need to download the corresponding operating environment, which can usually be selected in the installation package.

    For the database, a database driver for the applicable database type needs to be installed in the production environment. For example, if you are using a SQL Server database, you need to install the SQL Server database driver.

    This is possible if you want to use the same database. It is more recommended that you place the database on a network server. You can have a good connection after using it in the application.

    If you plan to use the database on your local computer, you need to do the corresponding network connection homework yourself, which may be a bit complicated for novices.

    Best Regards,

    Jiale
