SQL server

Hi!!
I`m looking for SQL server but somekind of OEM version. The program witch
I`m working use the MSDE Desktop engine (5 user version) and I want to use
it at 12 user. The SQL 2000 server is expensive for me and I`m looking for
something cheap, becouse I use only a SQL database engine.
Thanks

MSDE is the redistributable version of SQLServer.

There is no licence restriction on the number of users in MSDE it is simply
that the engine is throttled such that performance suffers when you add more
than five users. If you want better performance then you need to buy the
full product.

If your app doesn't use the database heavily you could consider using MS
Access as a DB back end.
You can use that database without having Access itself installed.

Otherwise you could have your app close connections as soon as they're not
needed anymore (ie. open and close the connection for each database action
you need). This ofcourse only works if the 12 users are not constantly using
the database at the same time.

Finally, i've read somewhere that if SQL Server is used in conjuction with
only one application you can get it for a reduced price.

Cheers,

Bas
