I have been given the task of developing an online contact database for my company. Our NT server is using MS SQL 7.0 but they want me to test it on my Win 98 Laptop before trying it out on the server. I am trying to to develop the ASP using Ultradev but it tells me I need MS PWS which of course I can't find on Microsoft's site. In short I have quite a few newbie questions to be answered. Can anyone suggest some links outside of Webmonkey to help? Biggest question facing me, don't have Access or any other database other than ACT! and Excel(I know a spreadsheet program) on the laptop, is it possible to fudge a demo together using either of these? Thanks for any help!

If you are going to do serious MSSQL development on your laptop, I would suggest running Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000.

However, if you can't change your OS (due to limitations of the laptop, company policy, etc.), PWS is available with Windows 98 SE. Go to Start|Settings|Control Panel and select Add/Remove Programs. Click on the Windows Setup tab. You will find PWS under Internet Tools. PWS is also available on the Windows NT Option Pack for Windows 95 which you can download (27MB) for free or purchase for about $99.95.

As far as database development, Access can work well for development but there can be a few gotchas when upscaling to MSSQL.

If you can change your OS, I would suggest getting the
Old UBB Archived Link: [URL=http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/msde/order.asp]MSDE (Microsoft Data Engine)[/URL]
for Visual Studio 6. It is available at not cost (you pay shipping and handling) and it comes with MSDE 7.0, MSSQL Server 7.0, and one developer license for SQL Server. You must have a licensed copy of Visual Studio 6, Visual Basic 6.0, Visual C++ 6.0, Visual J++ 6.0, Visual Interdev 6.0 or Visual FoxPro 6.0 to get it.
