8.4. What is the difference between the SE and NE versions?
The main differences between the SE (Single Edition) and the NE (Network Edition) are as follows.
Installs on Single (1) Workstation (PC).
All data is stored on that particular workstation.
Can install on multiple Workstations (PC)
Accommodates up to 3 concurrent users at a time.
Data is stored on either a shared workstation, or File Server.
Data is shared between each Workstation
Since data can be placed on server, data is normally backup on timely basis (as long as you have a backup plan implemented.)
The Icon colors on the desktop are also different. If the icon is Brown, then it is the SE (Single User Edition). If it is Blue then it is the NE (Network Edition).
