Looking for SQL server software not made by MS that runs on XP

Q: Looking for SQL server software not made by MS that runs on XP

I'm looking for an SQL server solution that runs on XP for testing purposes. I know MS makes a free one but I can't get it to install and I frankly have a bias against MS when it comes to mission critical programs. I've just been let down too many times by programs with too many entanglements into the OS. MS seems to feel that because they know the OS backwards and forwards that they should then entangle any app into the OS's deep settings.

Anyway, I'm looking for pretty much anything. It can cost money as I'm happy to play with a demo for awhile.

Preferred Solution: Looking for SQL server software not made by MS that runs on XP

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I tried cheating the system by overwriting some dlls (i forget which, possibly IIS.dll and another, i don't have the originals now) in WinXP Home with some from WinXP Professional so I could run the IIS server on my computer. It didn't work... So I kept it that way for a long time, but now my computer recognizes itself as a Windows NT 5.0 workstation instead of an NT 4.0 server like it should. Now I can't install windows updates and stuff. Help! Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem?

A:Crap, I made my computer a Windows NT 5.0 Server

Use system restore to recover, restore your last image backup, re-install Windows and don't do that again?

Those seem to be the options...

Hey everyone,

I'm bored right now, there is nothing to do today. I was just wondering if anyone needs a simple program made. If you do, then I can do it for you. And if you would like, I will also create a YouTube video on myself doing it.

Just leave a reply if you would like something made.


EDIT: Whoops sorry, didn't notice the sub-category for this kind of thing.

Hi Guys

Is there any software that can log all connections done by a software over a period of time? just the IP address and port and basic infos logged is good enough..

basically my friend developed a software for us , like a messenger, and though it is able to connect peer to peer and through its own server, i would like to analyze if it is making connections at random to a specific ip address even when its idle.. im basically watchin for "phone home" mischief...

Have a PC dedicated to an on-line instrument that operates continuously 24/7. This equipment is connected to our LAN. Therefore, IT decrees that a/v s/w be upon it and running. Every day between 10-11 am, this a/v program will do its thing - scan, etc. However, the PC's s/w does not take kindly to the a/v program reading and such its HD whilst its own dedicated program is trying to write to the HD the data its in the middle of collecting and writing. Therefore, at least 2-4 times per week, the PC will say pphhhhfffffffffffffftttttttt, and lock-up.

The basic details are thusly:

PC OS: Windoze 2000
A/V s/w: McAfee VirusScan Enterprise version: 8.0.0, & EPO update engine

Any thoughts? Well, besides upgrading the OS or not running the a/v - both options are denied by our IT department at the moment.

A:Would software recommendations made for older OS s still work for windows 10

I haven't tested Windows 10, too big of a download to justify the bandwidth right now. I'm interested to see what people have found does or does not work. I know with Windows 8 there were issues with some Windows 7 programs not working; devs had to quickly release new versions that fixed the issues. I'm sure there are going to be at least a few similar cases for Windows 10, especially for older software that was built for XP or Vista.

I have a small business with two computers running an appointment booking software. On my #2 computer - anytime I try to retrieve data or do basic task such as bookings, point of sale, etc. takes forever. I thought my #2 computer (being older) was slowing down and ready to be replaced -not the case. When we put a new one on the network the software still runs as slowly as before. It was not always like this - #2 seems to get slower and slower as our data base expands on #1.

In my task manager I get big processer spikes (25-35%) when it is trying to perform ordinary commands.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

A:LAN shared software runs slow

Spikes of 25 to 35% is nothing. What are your computers connected to for your network? Are you using switches or hubs? Switches are generally faster. Do you have the same make and model NIC in each computer? I would also recommend using 3Com or Intel. Your cabling can also have a big impact on network speed. If they are crappy cables or home made ones they can cause connectivity and speed problems.

I came across a small applicaiton that a guy writes and updates that will reboot your machine and actually scan before windows even starts. the software is EXCELLENT and has worked for me every time on the nastiest of nasties. Every time I use it I swear that I am going to write it down somewhere I will remember, well here I am. I do rembember writing it down, but cant remember where.

I always have stumbled onto it while surfing looking for something specific. I cant for the life of me find it this time

Why does my computer run MS Word when I try to update software? Whenever an installed program notifies me there is an update available and I click on install, instead of going to the web page for that software MS Word runs instead. When I run CCleaner if I click on the logo to go to their home page it does the same thing.

I thought this tool ran once and then deleted itself. Also I'm pretty sure in Vista and W7 ? that there was only a monthly entry.

Hey Lots2Learn, Welcome to Sevenforums!

In order for me to properly diagnose your problem I need to understand a few concepts which caused this.

What restore did you do? Was it a system restore or a Samsung recovery type program?

If presented how far did you restore back to and was the programs you are having problems accessing installed after the time you specified?

Do you have any installation setups or discs for the affected programs?

Many Thanks,

I need to install web server software on my computer so I can preview web pages before uploading them. It saves all of that unnecessary upload time. I used to run XAMPP with XP Pro SP3. But in looking to download it again, it doesn't mention 7 as being compatible. The last OS listed is Vista. I would imagine XAMPP is probably compatible with 7, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on this, or maybe another suggestion for free open source server software I could use with 7?

It has a web server function to serve pages directly from your computer, so I imagine that it has some way to preview them also. I don't know if it would allow you to upload them just anywhere though, but I imagine that could be done separately, if needed.

A:Software needs for NT 4 Server

I suspect you're going to have serious problems finding new software that is fully supported for Windows NT 4.0.

I don't know of any application that can scan any operating system to determine any type of problem and fix it regardless of corrupt files or registries. It sounds like you're looking for some type of Holy Grail software that fixes all problems. No such thing. Even harder to find utilities that work with an operating system even the maker of which doesn't support it.

A:What software is better for a web server?

You should use a hardware server; I would say, either get a router that has firewall enabled service or think about IPCOPS distro for linux; If you have an old computer around with two network cards, you can easily setup a firewall with no problem.

Hardware is always the way to go if your going to get a firewall; Cisco ASA or Pix if have alot of computer to protect;

Every now and then (every 5 minutes or so) my cursor will turn into the hourglass for a split second, then turn back.

At the very least, it makes me lag tremendously in online games for a few seconds (which makes CS and UT2004 pretty much unplayable).

As far as the "server" specs go, since you are apparently going to buy a Pre-Manufactured unit, eg, Dell, and obviously you don't want to limit your pleasure by anything as trivial as MONEY....Just buy the biggest most badass unit they offer.

And if it is specified as Multi-media, it "should" lean in the direction you want. As for the HD capacity...since you are talking about ARCHIVING all of you CD's and DVD's to Hard Disk, 250GB should be sufficient...for your FIRST hard drive !!! Go on from there.

A:Software Raid5 in Server 2003

If the OS is not part of the array and you have installed applications on the array you will have to restore those applications as well. I am not even sure you can make the OS part of an RAID 5 array. Your best bet would be to restore the OS volume from a full backup...the OS won't know the difference since the array looks like one big drive to it.

I have a 2008 server and I'm trying to re-install Crystal reports software becuase of a missing dll. I can re-install without any problems, and when I go into the software it works fine, but when I log off and log back on, I have the same problems taht I had before re-installing.

It's like the re-install did not happen, I'm and admin on the server and I'm also running the setup.exe as admin, what could be the problem.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all

i currently use 'iDrive' which does a daily backup of my computer. This is all good but i have got my own web server which has a 1 TB hard disk inside and is always connected to my home network and the internet.

I am looking for a piece of software (preferably free) that family and friends can use on their computers and connect to my server and backup their important documents automatically.

Without sounding horrid, a lot of my friends and family are not very experienced with computers and so i am needing a piece of software that once setup it will backup their documents and pictures etc with out them having to do anything or only having to press a few buttons.

Not sure if this type of software exists but if anybody knows of software that does this i would be very grateful.

Thank you

I have a remote office that has four computers running XP Pro networked together and I need a back-up solution for the system acting as the server (mainly a file server). I was using back-up exec desktop version 4.62 and it has worked great but ever since I upgraded to XP Pro I have been having problems with it. And according to Veritas, they sold the software to a company called stomp which has an upgraded version called back-up. Have you guys delt with Stomp? What software would you recommend.

Somebody please help me. A walkthrough would be great. This is my problem. I have a server at work, I am a computer engineer, however the problem is I have not had much experience with servers. My task is to install some software onto the server (Windows Server 2003) so that the software can then be accessed and run on each client computer (PC that is connected to the server)

Would anyone have any tips, or be able to walk me through doing this ?

Hi guys!

Do you know of any server-client type of program/software (shareware/licensed) that allows users (intranet/internet) to view add, edit, delete files/folders? The server application must also accommodate dynamic IP while the client side must involve minimum configurations.

It would also be great if it includes a discussion interface - chat, boards, etc.

Thank you very much!

Keywords: Uninstall Hawking HWPS12UG Print Server Utilities

When uninstalling the Hawking Print Server Utilities, you receive the message 'HAWKING_PS-P1 still in use! Please release the port before to complete uninstall Network driver'

You have a printer defined in your system (in Control Panel, Printers and Faxes) that is using the port named HAWKING_PS-P1, the port to which the Hawking Print Server Utilities' Network Driver is assigned.

Setting the printer concerned offline does not help.
Deleting the printer concerned does not help.Deleting the port HAWKING_PS-P1 (using the Printers and Faxes window's menu option File, Server Properties, Ports tab) produces the error message 'Selected port cannot be deleted. Operation could not be completed.'
After rebooting the system, deleting the port succeeds.
After deleting the port HAWKING_PS-P1, the uninstall of the Hawking Print Server Utilities succeeds .

Hi there to any of you network Gurus -- I'm testing a Virtual version of Windows Server What I'd like to do is to set up a VPN so I can access it from another computer Windows in the LAN while testing but using a VPN rather than RDP A FREE VPN server and client is what I would like at this stage Eventually I would like to login from a mobile phone too - but later The VPN should just present a LOGIN screen to the user and then show a basic desktop with just say Office and IE installed on it I'm totally VPN and VPN AND Create (Server client) Free software good new to this sort of stuff - so SIMPLE to start with - I don't want to get into quot Remote Roaming quot Domains or any other quot Geeky stuff quot at this stage -- just the simple basics - LOGON etc Any links greatfully appreciated -- there's so many to choose from so I don't know where to start The network connectivity to the server works fine --at least with RDP so I don't have to worry at least about that bit of the system Cheers jimbo

A:Create VPN and good Free VPN software (Server AND client)

First off, a vpn in just a virtual network connection, so it won't natively present you with a desktop or applications. It will get you remotely connected to the network, from there you will launch something else to connect to a desktop, either rdp, terminal services, etc.

Doing a VPN is natively built into sever 2012, so you won't need any software, free or otherwise to setup a.basic VPN.

I am looking for a good backup solution for 2008 Server std x64. This server is an upgrade from 03 and I really liked that solution but no support for 2008.I had a USR 8700 NAS on a fiber connection to another building. Using the falconstor Disk Safe Client. I liked the ability to mount the backups as a drive. The speed of the iscsi interface. and the monitory with e-mail notification, I have looked at falconstor's site and saw some of there current software however no pricing, and price is a big issue.I have also found backup assist. I looked at it and seems more a wbadmin script writer with a couple needed perks. Anybody know any other options, or a way to make falconstor disksafe work on 2008 x64??

I have a 2 PCs that are randomly powering off. One more than the other. Both are giving the same symptoms but I have no clue how to figure out what is going on. I need help from a software to figure these out.

1) Event logs are clean no stop signs or exclamtion points prior to shutdown.
2) Just gives an indicator last shutdown was unexpected.
3) memtest runs through fine.
4) Shutdown is 100% random not any timed thing.
5) Happens when idle and at full use.
6) No blue screen at all.
7) No dump files.
8) Different power sources have been used/on top of the fact one is a laptop with a fine battery.

I am all out of troubleshooting ideas. Any thoughts on something that is a realtime system monitor that might catch WHY these systems are shutting down?

I have been given a PC with Windows Home of 2011 client software Removal Windows Server Home Premium bit This was a client PC from a small old Windows Home Server system which has now been dismantled as the server PC failed My unit works fine but I cannot remove the irritating Server client items from it - Launchpad and Alert Services etc etc Have looked everywhere on the disk but cannot find any uninstall file anywhere All the relevant files seem to be in the Program Files Windows Server Bin folder but nothing found there No separate uninstalling prog will work either Have considered starting up the PC in Safe Mode physically removing the Windows Server folder and contents then running a registry cleaner to tidy up the loose ends Am concerned that this might make the PC unstable so ask if anyone has any useful suggestions For now I have worked through the Start Up process and inhibited the ones considered relevant Also CCleaner has stopped the Launchpad This has worked but would like to permanently remove Removal of Windows Home Server 2011 client software the unwanted items Ted

A:Removal of Windows Home Server 2011 client software

No one has supplied any suggestions as to my programme removal so decided to risk it and do it myself as described.
Backed up whole HD plus registry, restarted in basic Safe Mode then physically removed all traces of WHS 2011 in file system.
Emptied Recycle Bin then restarted as normal.
No disasters occurred so used CCleaner and Advanced Uninstaller PRO. They mopped up the loose ends and everything seems to be fine now. Job done!
I suppose the same process could be used for most difficult to remove items.
