Hi!
I need help on which Dtabase to use for my App.
Shortly,I am developing an app. that will run in the LAN evironment with max.5 workstations that will run !!Windows98!!. The problem is what can I use as a Database? SQL Servers are too expensive.
I could use desktop database and implement 3-tier architecture that uses DCOM,but Windows98 is a problem.put Access databse file in a shared folder? What else could you suggest.
I really NEED HELP!!!

thanks,Vitaliy

take a look at MySQL. it is free and should be mostly compatible with sql server if you decide to upgrade

Look at MSDE - a Royalty free SQL Sserver engine that comes with VB6.0, MSDN or MS Office 2000 premium.
If you have one of these, you can use the MSDE engine free of charge! ( it's basically a Full Fledged SQL Server without the GUI )
Search for MSDE on MSDN.com
