No, That don't meet the requirement of "No need to install additional package on client PC".jh71283 said:Cheong said:*snip*
have you considered SQL Compact?
This is a government contract so we have little control over what we can do. The Excel/Access driver is already there in WinXP so these are the way to go. For others we have to watch the "pre-approved applications" checklist... To give you a grasp on how tight the controls are, NewSID from "Sysinternals Suite" is on the "allowed" list, while other applications like "Process Explorer" on the same package are not.
Duncanma: We don't have direct access to the web server, and I don't think they'll allow running another application there. Think about the forms we'd have to fill and the time required to process those forms.
Basically we need some offline data container that allow basic SQL select and join queries and come with WinXP by default.
