Installing SDB

SDB can be used in several different setup depending on how you want to use it.

I will now go through the different scenarios on how SDB can be installed and the benefit of each of them

SDB on Terminal Server
You need a Windows 2003 Server. SDB is installed on the server and all users connect to the server using Remote Desktop. When logged in, they can use SDB without installing it on their local compunter. Terminal Server Enviroment makes it very easy as you only have to update SDB on the server and not on each PC at the school

SDB Standalone Using MYSQL4 (when no Server is available)
If you want to install SDB on your laptop and are not connected to any server, you can install the SDB program and mysql server on your laptop. You can then from the SDB interface create a blank database or you can copy a complete database from one of the schools down to your laptop. You can also donwload databases in Danish and English from our website. This is called SDB-standalone.
You can have it all on one Laptop/PC. When you use SDB in standalone more, SDB will ask you for username and password. This means that on the same laptop you can setup a teacher accound and several student accounds.
If it is a public PC, the students can use it for resolving tasks and the teacher can use it to correct the tasks.
You do not need a network to operate SDB in standalone mode
