Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine

The Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine is a data engine that is built on core SQL Server technology.


As Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine supports single and dual processor desktop computers, it serves as a reliable storage engine and query processor for the desktop extensions of enterprise applications. Both SQL Server and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine share a common technology base. This enables developers to build applications that can scale seamlessly from portable computers to multiprocessor clusters.

The Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine does not have a default user interface or any tools. You can interact with the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine through the application in which it is embedded. For ease of distribution and embedding, the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine is packaged in a self-extracting archive. The Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine can also be built into applications and redistributed without royalty with Microsoft development tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio.NET and Microsoft Office XP Developer Edition. This enables developers to build enterprise-class reliability and enhanced database features into their desktop applications.

Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine is fully compatible with SQL Server. The operating systems in which you can run the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine as an embedded database, are Microsoft Windows 98, Windows Millenium Edition (Windows Me), Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 4.0 (With Service Pack 5 or later), and Windows 2000 Professional.
