Vale Software has just released a major update to their MSDE Management tool, allowing you to administer and develop your MSDE database more visually and simply than ever before. The update has added among other improvements the importing and exporting of DTS packages, support for multiple TSQL windows and the use of docking panes to increase the working area.
MSDE is a free database by Microsoft but it is not supplied with any visual management tool of its own. Even the simplest administrative task needed to be done using code. MSDE Manager not only makes administering MSDE more accessible, it also speeds up the amount of time taken to perform even the most routine of tasks.
The real strength of Vale Software's program is their really easy to navigate interface. They have been built with the user in mind and you can now administer your MSDE & SQL Database more easily than ever before. There are wizards throughout the program for example to backup and restore your database, with an option to add an automated schedule to your backup.
MSDE Manager is designed to work on Windows 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP and Windows Servers 2000 & 2003. You can manage both local and remote instances and perform all the common management tasks that a deployment of MSDE would entail.
MSDE Manager sells for $79.00(US). You can also buy a special saver pack of MSDE Manager and Vale Software's SQL Documentation program for $99.99 saving $29.99. Trial versions and screen shots of these programs are available to download from http://www.valesoftware.com
MSDE - Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) is the free, redistributable version of SQL Server that's ideal for client applications that require an embedded database on the computer, new developers learning how to build data-driven applications, and Web sites serving up to 25 concurrent users. http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/default.asp
