Editors' Review

+

MDB Viewer Plus is a bare-bones database application. It allows you to view, edit, and search through a Microsoft Access database file without having Access installed on the machine. It serves as a valuable substitute when you don't have Access available to you.

Pros

Straightforward design: Databases are one of the more complex file types that you might have to work on. This program uses a navigation system and icons that should be familiar enough to users of other Windows programs that learning how to perform the basic functions such as opening and searching a file are easy to perform, even for someone without a lot of database experience.

Good value: For a free program, this app offers significant value. Being able to open and edit MDB files without having to purchase Office is of considerable worth, especially considering how well the program appears to work.

Cons

Cluttered: Both the toolbar and the main viewing area of the app are quite cluttered. It looks very dated, without the clarity more common in newer software.

Installation: During the installation process, several questions come up trying to get you to install extra browser add-ons and tool bars. You do have the option to reject these installations, but it seems like a needless hassle.

Bottom Line

If you've ever needed to open an MDB file and don't have access on your machine, this is an effective solution to your problem. The software is a little dated and a little cumbersome, but ultimately it performs the tasks you ask it to do admirably. For software that is about functionality and not designed for any sort of entertainment purposes, those drawbacks aren't enough reason to keep away.

"Works fine so far"

February 19, 2014  |  By memorymoog

 |  Version: MDB Viewer Plus 2.48

Pros

Fast loading
Standalone (no install required, but does create one ini file)
Editing capabilities
Import/Export capabilities

Cons

None found so far

Summary

Only used this prog once so far, to open a simple, one table database and delete one record. Scanned program first with AVG after reading other reviews warning of malware/virus, nothing found.
Looks like it has quite a few features, have not looked into these as yet. Satisifed so far, did the job I wanted very quickly and easily.

"Virus comes with it!"

December 05, 2013  |  By NortNort

 |  Version: MDB Viewer Plus 2.48

Pros

Not applicable

Cons

If you download this freeware you will get a persistent virus that comes along with it "Scorpion Saver." This will keep coming back everytime you restart your computer - even after deleting it from your internet browser extensions/add-ons, computer programs, and registry editor. It will cause annoying pop-ups. I'm still trying to figure out how to get rid of it once and for all!

"Full of bugs"

August 20, 2013  |  By zeljkoitf

 |  Version: MDB Viewer Plus 2.48

Pros

Very few... except it's free.

Cons

Full of bugs;
- Table info gives wrong information about everything displayed in there (field precision, required info, primary keys info etc..).
- Indexes are not correctly detected
- Primary keys are not correctly detected, nor you can change them
- Multiple bugs in query window & execution
- Tables and queries are all "tables".
etc etc...

Summary

I really don't know what people see in this software since almost nothing here works as it should.
