Possible to run MSDE (2000) and 2005 Express at the same time

89 New Member
Just wondering if this is possible, I'm coding this application that will run on a network with a SQL Server 2000, however each workstation (notebook computers in this case) will need to copy some of that data locally to a SQL 2005 Express instance. On the computer I'm developing on I'd like to have an instance of both MSDE and SQL 2005 Express running so I can replicate the network as close to possible while writing code.

Alternatively I could just install MSDE (2000) on to the workstations, however 2k5 Express can be embedded into setup files with visual studio so that is really appealing to me.

Any help or links would be appreciated.

I have tried to install MSDE 2000, first the normal version, then the one for developers using Visual Studio .NET. Each time the installation appears to complete, but there is no shortcut to start the program and it's not in the Start/Programs menu. However, if I look for it in "Add and Remove Programs" it's there. The directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Binn includes some exe files and I have tried to start them,...

Posting this here as MS has informed me that microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb.data is not a supported group, but this one is.

Currently it's strictly single user, but I'm working on a multi-user version now. In order for one machine to connect to the other, I must run the svrnetcn.exe utility and...

Hello, all, I started out thinking my problems were elsewhere but as I have worked through this I have isolated my problem, currently, as a difference between MSDE and SQL Express 2005 (I'll just call it Express for simplicity). I have, to try to simplify things, put the exact same DB on two systems, one running MSDE and one running Express. Both have 2 Ghz processors (one Intel, one AMD), both have a decent amount of RAM (Intel system...
