VB Databases - codebase, etc

Hi,

I've been writing some CGI programs in VB using the CGI4VB stdin/stdout library and Access databases.

Obviously Access databases are a pretty crappy way of doing things due to slowness and the size of the db engine, etc.

I've been looking at the Codebase DB library by Sequitter software and wondered if anyone has had any experience with this or any similar products and how well they work.

I don't want to use a db server as this over complicates things for what I'm doing.

Comments would be appreciated.

Thanks

Neil McAliece

Hi,

Unfortunately I'm going to sell these CGI programs and can't insist that all my clients have Office 2000 installed to use it.

Thanks

Found this on Microsoft:

You may need to purchase developer cd and you can redistribute msde.

?Only the version MSDE on the Office 2000 Developer CD is redistributable. The version on the Office Premium CD is not.
