The reason I need this is when we purchased a piece of software they needed
SQL Server 2000, however we could not purchase a SQL Server 2000 License so

means we have the SQL Server 2005 disks and now we need to upgrade to SQL

My application is initiated by a user on client (the user choose a

component (simulating Excel in an ActiveX dll) VB6.
Then I would like to send the resulting data to the calling client
(Excel Addin + VB6 Client). I'm using Excel2003.
Why I make a serverside calculation instead of send the values and
formulas to Excel and let Excel do the work on the client are :

of the resulting data
2. Some clients will be browsers without calculations possib...Synchronization error

I'm using Entourage 2004 to connect to an Exchange 2003 server at work. On

At the end of the day, we put our POS to sleep (Standby). When we wake it up
in the morning, it is often very slow to resume and show a desktop. Also, it
is very slow to allow launching of Store Ops. Does this have anything to do
with the newer SQL server software installed when we upgraded RMS 2.0? Any
other ideas on how to improve performance in resuming from standby and
launching/using POS in the morning?

In response to an earlier post saying that messages should not be used for synchronization
and that primitives like mutexes, events, and semaphores were better suited, (note also
that CRITICAL_SECTIONs had been omitted from the list, probably an oversight, and timers
had been included, for reasons I cannot ascertain because timers have nothing to do with
synchronization). I offer a counterargument: these primitives are the assembly code of
synchronization, and mechanisms like messages and I/O Completion Ports provide much better
alternatives most of the time. We should be searching for highe...Outlook on Exchange server machine
