FLASH: Windows Vista Will NOT Support MSDE or SQL Server 2000.

Windows Vista/Server will support only SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 and later. SP2 is due to ship soon after Vista to ensure compatibility.

There will be no support for the Microsoft Desktop Engine (MSDE), the SQL Server subset, used by many Access developers, shipped with Ms Access/Office prior to Version 2003, and mean't to be replaced by SQL Server Express.
