Risque of using MS DE 2000 and Windows Vista

T

Tony

Hi,

1.

I just received a piece of retail administrative software for review that
uses MSDE 2000 database engine. Installation om part of of the SQL Server
2000 Desktop Engine on Vista Ultimate took 1 hour and 8 minutes.

What went wrong???



2.

The retail box of the software mentions Vista under ,,System requirements'',
but XP is ,,Recommended''.



Is there a risk in using the MS DE 2000 data engine under Windows Vista? It
is still ,,supported'' by Microsoft for Windows XP, where the Microsoft web
site says it is unsupported for Vista!



3. The MSDE 2000 database is ready for syncronisation on install of the
administrative software. I'd say that is putting it open to the world. Is
there any way to prevent is from doing that?



Kind regards,

Tony Thijs

If you are saying you Must run some software that fails to run well on your
hardware, I would guess you should get better hardware. If your Vista
'client' OS is not enough for your needs, you should probably consider
installing a 'server' OS, like Windows Server 2008. Both Vista and XP were
never really considered good server platforms, and running a data server has
always required better hardware. The 4 gig client memory limit is probably
the problem.

i'd say you are witnessing firsthand another part of the 'mark of the beast' being put in place...
but most is already done... the pieces have been slotting in un-noticed.
the next thing the beast wants, is 'choice'.

btw... define 'risque' ? life or death ? something a tad smaller?

Hi,
This is a low cost administrative package that is supposed to run on a
workstation. I have a 2,53 Ghz Pentium 4 with 4 Gig memory. This software is
not meant to be even near a server system.
Kind regards,
Tony Thijs

yes, i guess data-loss would be a value,,, but in regard to life or death, thats something only
a starving man could understand..... yes? (value has many forms, 99.99% of them all underated....
but one things for sure, without life, then where is the value in collected data? ie, if you
die tomorrow, what use is your data?
