I received last week a notice about the expiration period of SQL Server 2008 R2. I honestly got surprised considering that I installed the Express Edition.
This week, I noticed an article announcing the coming out of SQL Server 2008 SP2. This really caught my attention.
A few questions:
1- Is R2 a release candidate version of SQL Server 2008 Express?
2- If so, how can I uninstall it from the moment SP2 is available for download. Must I use the original setup program I used for install?
3- Actually I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition with Advanced Services. What is the equivalent for the SP2 version. Where can I find it for download?
Thanks for helping,
I have develop a Delphi tool that allow to manage enterprise timesheet.
This application is used by multiple different user in an enterprise.
The tool can run under SQL Server 2000,2005, 2008 (express or not).
In my SQL queries within my application, there is a lot of "INNER JOIN", "OUTER JOIN" that is quite universal.
But there is also some "ISNULL(?,!)", "CASE WHEN ... .THEN ... ELSE .. .END".
I want to have a "free trial" version of my tool.
I can't ask my users to install SQL Server (it is a free trial).
I am not able to use SQL Server Compact Edition because I need a multi-computer connexion (each different employes of a company access the tool).
I dont really like ACCESS because there is some standard not respected (varchar datatype do not exist, memo field is not easy to manipulate compare to varchar(2000), CASE WHEN dont work, I have to make weird query junction with parenthesis when there is
multiple table, etc...etc...etc...).
My question : WHAT CAN I DO! I dreamed of SQL Server Compact Edition allowing multiple concurrent connexion and handling tables. Or SQL Server Express without install.
Is there a solution to this?
I have several css style sheets I want to work with. I have copied them into the appropriate directory structure in my project. The styles are applied correctly.
But the manage CSS styles tool bar on the left margin doesn't seem to work correctly. At one point I had generated a style sheet and worked with it there, but now it not only can't find the one it generated, but the attach style sheet link doesn't respond at all, nor does anything in this bar. Same deadness with the CSS Properties bar. With or without a style sheet loaded in the editor -- a style sheet that is active in the project such that when I run it, the styles are applied.
VB version of studio, running on Vista home basic.
PS, the design mode works a lot better than the professional version I use in my day job on XP and server 2003.
I downloaded some project from some site which is made in VS 2003. When I open its project file in Notepad I get following at first line Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 8.00. I don't have VS 2003 in my PC but I have VB 2005 and 2008 Express Edition. Now I wanted to upgrade that file but it is not doing. Can somebody help to upgrade it.
I need to get a list of programs/files that were installed when I was trying to install VWD 2008 so I can go through and remove them. The installation did not actually install the main part of the program so I can't start with removing Microsoft VWD 2008 (a folder was created in Program files but it is empty. I found this (below) but I'm not sure that it applies. I don't want to remove programs/files that are being used by other programs. (I can't just try to install again because there is not enough room on my hard drive)
