Ward Pond's SQL Server blog

Ruminating on issues pertinent to the design and development of sound databases and processes under Microsoft SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2005, and SQL Server 2000 (while reserving the right to vent about anything else that's on my mind)

On Thursday, June 18 at 11am PDT, Mark Russinovich will host the first of a two-session virtual roundtable for IT pros worldwide to discuss Windows 7 Application Compatibility. This is a chance for IT pros to learn all about the Windows 7 Application Compatibility and answer any deployment and management questions that they may have. As part of the “virtual” experience, IT pros will be able to submit their questions about Windows 7 Application Compatibility to the panel live during the event—or submit questions in advance to vrtable@microsoft.com.

So..  if you want to get up to speed on application compatibility in Windows 7, save the date now and plan to join Mark next Thursday, June 18 at 11am PDT at https://ms.istreamplanet.com/springboard.  I’ve attached a .ics file to the post to make reminding yourself even easier.

  • hey is there any chance we'll get SQL 2000 to work on Windows 7?

    I have a hard time living without the SQL 2000 / MSDE, and I honestly think that this was my biggest complexity in moving to Windows Vista.. Since I'm hoping you guys learned from your mistakes, I was still _REALLY_ hoping you guys might allow Windows 7 and SQL Server 2000 to play nice?

    Just _HAD_ to ask, thanks!


  • @Aaron: to my knowledge, SQL Server 2000 is fundamentally incompatible with the security model introduced in Windows Vista.  This security model is also present in Windows 7.  

    You might want to consider using SQL Server 2005 Express Edition instead.  This software is compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    Hope this helps!
