never used it before (command line and all *shudder*). But supposedly it does come with MSDE. The real answer to the question, "How can I execute a query and view the databases?" is: You write a front-end application in VB, C++, or Delphi (yeah Delphi). And probably using ADO as the database connectivity technology. Other than that, there are some free and (and some not free) grahical MSDE management programs. Google for them "free enterprise manager", or "msde management tool", etc..There are GUI Utils for MSDE 2000 as Ian stated, you can Install Enterprise manager ie the client tools if you have a full SQL server 2000 Server version and a SQL License or use OSQL , see below article: How To Manage the SQL Server Desktop Engine
I have installed MSDE2000A and it is working perfectly on the local machine, but how do I connect from a remote Enterprise Manager? I keep on getting the message that either sql does not exist or access denied. How do I fix this?Hi, Using client network utility (cliconfg.exe) create a new Alias Specifying IP Address and port number in machine which has Enterprise manager. use this ALIAS name to register.

the above mentioned error. But I don't understand the solutions. About the operating system I an a novice too. Installed MSDE a few times before the server Icon with the green errow apered. Deinstalled MSDE 2000 a few times and removed also the directories. Some in this newsgroup mentioned that there are entries in the registry that should be deleted. But about the registry I am a novice. Is there another solution to make a clean install. Henkhi Henk, about the folders and registry entries to be deleted, you can have a look at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q290991, which completely remove an MSDE instance from a pc but for the presence orphaned Windows Installer registry entries.. for the latter you have to use MsiZap.exe, part of the Windows Installer
I am using the MSDE deployment toolkit to deploy MSDE release A. The total size of my install is ~80 MB, of which my application accounts for 1 MB. Is it possible to create a smaller MSDE install by excluding certain merge module depending on the features used by the application?hi Marius, you should always provide the full "package" other "cannibalized" packages could produce erratic behaviours resultin in installation failure..
you want to do with them you can use Acces to query your database, or any other application that is designed to work with SQL Server if you need management tools, to "manage" your MSDE instance for creating logins, databases, tables, objects and so on, you can do it via oSql.exe like explained in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q325003 or resort on third party tools.. you can have a look at a free prj of mine, available at the link following my sign., or for other free and/or commercial tools listed at http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/partners/default.asp or http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2442; google for furter..Andrea, Thank you very much for the information!

It runs on both Win98 and WinXP.hi Peter, are you mixing up trusted connection with user defined credentials for login? how and with what tool are you trying to connect to the MSDE instance? if you use oSql.exe, the command line tool provided with MSDE, you have 2 different ways to connect.. specifying a trusted WinNT connection, c:\ \>osql.exe -E -S(Local) or with a standard SQL Server authenticated connection, c:\..\>osql.exe -Usa -Pyourpwd -S(Local)hi Again, BTW, can you please verify the mixed mode authentication is enabled?.. run regsvr32.exe, locate the registry "LoginMode" key as indicated in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb

;concurrent queries" versus "concurrent users". The workload governor operates off the former while users are typically looking to configure based on the latter. The workload governor allows essentially 480 (sub-second) database queries or other (e.g., update) operations per minute without degradation. You can ballpark what this means in terms of transactions. Assume a simple transaction has perhaps 5 queries. A mid-level has perhaps 20, and a complex transaction has about 40. So you can support between 10 and 100 transactions per minute with MSDE with no degradation. OLTP leans towards the simple side (volume-wise you might have 70-80% of your transactions in the simple category) so lets assume 75 transactions per minute. The real question for

Can MSDE be cloned? I would like to creates an install of MSDE in an image I am working on, and create an image of the load. Does anyone know if this will cause problems for MSDE? Thanks in advance. BobShi BobS, AFAIK not you can ghost a complete pc, but not a single MSDE instance installation I actually do not understand how do you prepare the "image" to be burned and distributed lot of dlls, both standard Win32 and COM dlls, have to be written to disk, both in private \Microsoft SQL Server\.. and system . stuff has to be written to the registry services have to be installed and negotiated .

Now, when I open that plan again, I see that the every 1 days is changed to 366 days (not only for this one, but for all where I've set it to every 1 day). I can't save the plan anymore (errors complaining about having the wrong value-types). When I change it back to 1 day, save it and re-open it, it comes back with the 366 days again Any ideas on what's going on here?

Hi, I am running MSDE 2000 and will shortly be moving to sql server. Is there a way using osql to output a script to allow me to easily re- create the database on sql server. thnx in advance leehi Lee, not directly.. but you can perform the required task uing the SQL-DMO component and writing some (actually a bit more then "some") code to do that.. or you can use Enterprise Manager to do that as well.. if you like, you can have a look at a free prj of mine, DbaMgr2k available at the link following my sign., that provides that feauture as well.. or, as MSDE and SQL Server share the same storage engine and the databases can be moved among the editions, you can just retain the database(s) and just upgrade to the higher editions..
at a free prj of mine which implements a user interface similar to Enterprise Manager which includes this feature too other tools, both free and commercial, for MSDE are available as described in http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/partners and/or http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2442 the "system" is the same MSDE "is" SQL Server just with some limitations and no graphical tools but the core is the same here you are right you should buy SQL Server Developer edition at about $49, that provides you all the tools for testing, debugging, tuning and troubleshooting SQL Server/MSDE based applications.. but for a "starter kit", MSDE can be sufficient as well Hi Andrea Thanks for the info. I tried the osql command

Hi, I'm installing some software that requires a SQL server database (GFI web monitor reporting). The server I have installed the software on has an existing ISA 2006 MSDE instance. I was wondering if it's possible to create a new MSDE instance for use with the new software. If so is it difficult to do (as I know very little about SQL)? HMSDE is based on SQL Server 2000. While obsolete, it does support multiple instances.

'm looking for a new manager tool. I have a couple fo custoemrs using MSDE and I am running MSDE manager (Vale Software) to administer them. I was interested in finding out about the newer versions and had a couple of questions regarding bugs.

THis has been very disappointing since I really like this tool. So I'm wondering if there is somethign else out there that can be used to manage MSDE?

We have 3 or 4 computers with ADP payroll application on them that uses MSDE. If I install the package under an account such as administrator, then another user attempts to use that computer, each time they logon, it goes through the Windows Installer portion "Please wait while windows configures Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine" for about a minute or so.

a working MSDE sp3 (500+ installs) install utilizing the M$ merge modules and Installshield DevStudio. We need to allow a seamless!!! upgrade path to SQL Express which requires sp4 as a minimum. We aquired the new version, created the directories, and switched the merge module location in options. The new SP4 version installed without incidence , but will not uninstall. A ;quot;standard" Microsoft released service packs/hot fixes and requiring the original ISV to distribute branded versions of them.. (service pack 4 [at least] warned about this condition).. you can try manually uninstalling MSDE instances following http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q290991 advices.. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320873 adds further hints on how to
USB key at application start up, and obviously detach them before key removal (or the dbs will be marked as suspect).. this is not the very best solution for SQL Server database, both for performance and security reasons, but it can be done and, of course, even if this is an MSDE default setting, set the autoclose db option :D just a side note I recently bought an USB key and read something about 100.000 writes warranty well, I really do not know how long does it takes for SQL Server/MSDE (but even JET) to exceed this value, but I'd expect not that much time . so stay tuned :D SQLExpress will support (single user) User Instances, http://tinyurl.com/bm3to , that combined with .Net XCopy deployment can perhaps get your point Hi Andrea: I know for sure of two
engines.. just remember to modify the compatibility level of each "upgraded" db to 2005 level (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/tsqlref/ts_sp_da-di_5c8c.asp), modify the database owner to a valid principal (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/tsqlref/ts_sp_ca-cz_30s2.asp) and update all table's statistics (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/fr-fr/library/ms187348.aspx) with full scan option set.. the very first (pretty physical) one that comes to my mind is Windows Vista support, as MSDE/SQL Server 2000 code based editions will not be supported on the new OS this, of course if you do not need features available on SQLExpress only, such as CLR programmability features, enhaced security, new datatypes

.. ok that number is quite prohibitive as regard resources, as you never will have or desire 16 running instances of MSDE on the same box.. but if you have a "particular" instance you don't want to share with other applications, than you can install a private instance for that app and using a "common" instance for all other databases as long as that instance is up, you need it Does this must be asked to the ISV providing that MSDE instance as per MSDE original EULA it shoul'd be that way, but now MSDE is free, and each instance can be a shared one, as long as the ISV providing it does not specify it's reserved for his/her app(s) it really depends personally I do not, I only have separate instances for test under

In other words, I installed MSDE on Machine A. The Service Manager on Machine A can see its own server, plus an instance of SQL Server on Machine B. Machine B can see its own SQL Server instance, but cannot see the MSDE instance on Machine A. On Machine A, the Network Utility says the tcp/ip default port is 1059 (must be some default, because I did not set it), and Hide Server is not checked.

but that did not help either. So I uninstalled the Business contact manager, since we were not yet using it and the MSDE, then reinstalled MSDE and that is now working just fine with the database application. Does anyone have any idea what my problem may have been, if I am just unable to have the Business contact manager and MSDE on the same comptuer or if there is a fix or workaround for the problem I am experiencing? Thanks so much, SThi, I do not know about Outlook Business Contact Manager, but as regard the empty SQL Server list in the SQL Server Service Manager, it probably depends on network protocols setting for the installed MSDE instance, as reported in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;814132 to modify this behaviour, run the Server Network Utility
