EC PRO: EnergyCAP Pro 2006 Vista Compatibility Issue
Posted by Barry Kroeker on 14 January 2009 04:38 PM

EnergyCAP Professional 2006 and prior releases use a desktop version of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 called "MSDE." MSDE is not compatible with Vista. Microsoft has elected to abandon MSDE in favor of the most recent desktop version of SQL Server 2005 which is called SQL Server 2005 Express.

EnergyCAP Pro 2006 will run on a Vista workstation if the database is located on a separate server that is running SQL Server 2000 or MSDE.

It is possible to upgrade SQL Server on a Vista PC from MSDE to SQL Server 2005 Express, but this process is not recommended, as this configuration has not been tested with EnergyCAP for compatibility.

SQL Server 2005 Express is bundled with more current releases of EnergyCAP Professional.
