Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Re: Free or Low Cost DB Manager app for SQLite?

    For the desktop Vista DB looks like a decent fit given the .NET direction Alpha has embraced.

    Whilst not cheap but not exorbitant at the same time once purchased the database engine can be distributed with the developers applications royalty free.

      Why spend your time trying to figure out which dlls to distribute based upon the target machine cpu? VistaDB has the best deployment scenario for any managed application - true xcopy deployment. You can just xcopy our engine alongside your application and run. Nothing to install, nothing to configure. A single assembly is all you need for both 32 and 64 bit runtimes on any .Net Framework from 2.0 SP1 to the latest .Net version
      Portable... They "get it." ~ I like their methodology at least. Too bad .Net wasn't also "drag & drop."

      It's all about the "framework." (I suppose an "a5-induced" hard drive crash is now in order?)

        I have looked at Vista in the past. When it first came out it had a free version as I recall. Then they priced it too high as far as I was concerned. I will have to take another look. The more I look at FireBird the better I like it. Its embedded version is suitable for a single user desktop, then they have a multi-user version all of which are open source.

          How much more difficult is it to connect Alpha to a database not listed in the connection string builder? I notice that Firebird and SQLite are not listed.

            Both have ODBC drivers, and FireBird has a .Net ADO provider. So it it should not be too hard.
