That depends on what you think an "intranet windows application" is and what you want to do. And it will also greatly depend on the specific issue that you have. "How do I create my application" is vague and not very specific.

What's wrong with implementing it as a normal Web application? Install a Web server behind your firewall, and install the application into its web tree. The Web browser becomes your client, and you divide the work between client and server just as you would in any other Web application. The main difference is that, since it's behind your firewall, you can relax the security restrictions a bit.

The question is so vague that it makes no sense. Perhaps you need to know just one thing: you can create am ASP.NET applications in exact same way as for Internet. But also you can do a lot more things based on custom networking, especially if your firewalls don't create barriers inside the Intranet domain(s). —SA

No, we are under no obligation to teach you programming. It is your responsibility to define your question as an actual question and make it clear. If you know that it doesn't make any sense, why did you post it?

If you are good at web application and requirement meets then you may consider creating web application for intranet. You can find a project template for such in Visual Studio.
Now, if you prefer windows application then also there can be better solutions but let me suggest a simple one.

First of all, your database need to be in the server and should be accessible from all other machines.
Mostly, there is no need to design anything specific in your windows application. But consider following things-
1. If you have planned to write any CPU specific code then make need to make sure that all the node machines need to have the supported architecture.
2. You need to make sure that database connection string can be configurable. My suggestion is to put this information in the app.config file.
3. After you installed your application in the client nodes you need to provide the database credentials of the server in the config.

Hope, it helps :)

does it mean that..the application which i have developed does not need any changes in code just install on every client machine which are connected to server..or i need to make some changes in my application. I have read the articles on codeproject about socket programming but didn't grasp the concept.can you help me.. one doubt..does i need an application on server for handling request from client application..

Yes, typically no change is required. If you already have developed the application then you are ready to go. If you face any problem then comeback here and post your problem.
