Sesame Database Manager is compatible with Symantec Q&A. Q & A users will find that Sesame uses many of the same keystrokes, the same search syntax, and almost the same programming syntax as used in a Q&A database. Sesame can also translate Q&A databases. Find out more.

Attention McAfee Users: It has come to our attention that sdesigner.exe in 2.5.3 is getting tagged incorrectly as a trojan by McAfee. We are trying to get McAfee's attention to get this dealt with. Meanwhile, we are NOT infecting your computer with a trojan. It's a false positive.

Unfortunately, McAfee does not appear to provide a way for you to tell it you want to trust the program anyway, so you may not be able to run SDesigner. Again, we have contacted McAfee and are trying to get this corrected.
