Yes, I installed it a ways back and played around with it briefly.  I =
have a
SQL Server stand-alone machine available, so I decided to stick with =
real thing, and use MSDE for special custom install situations.

If its a service why do you suppose MS keeps talking about accessing it =
embedded applications?  Are there different versions?  What happens =
when you
embed it with an application in an .EXE (as advertised) and deploy it =
on a
target machine without MSDE.  Its supposed to come up running.  Does =
mean it starts services there?  I don't have all the answers.  I just =
what the product documentation says, and what I saw from my brief =

Have you ever installed or used it?

N:\>net start
These Windows services are started:

   Application Management
   Message Queuing
   Message Queuing Triggers
   Network Connections

The command completed successfully.

Those two MSSQL$ services are both MSDE instances.
