Install Taskpad View Report

FineBuild can install and configure the SQL 2000 Taskpad View Report as part of the SQL Server install process.
If you do not want to include Taskpad View Report in your FineBuild install, then do not download it.

Taskpad View Report is written by Jasper Smith and Simon Sabin. It was chosen to be included in FineBuild because it provides functionality in SQL Server that is similar to the Taskpad View in SQL Server 2000, and provides an example of a Custom Report.
