The builtin DB version is a run-time licensed version of SQL Server 2K.
There are no management tools with it, although Emerald 4.5 includes
simple backup/restore options, a query screen, and a SQL status
screen to allow basic functionality.
You can actually upgrade it to the full version just by installing
SQL 2K over the top of it. All SQL Server Service Packs can be
applied to it as well (the MSDE notes in the service packs). If
you already have the SQK license, you wont gain anything.
