MSDE Database

The WhatsUp Gold installation program installs the MSDE 2000 database server and configures the WhatsUp database. As described on the MSDE Home page, 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, and for Web sites serving up to 25 concurrent users.
