I suggest that you look at Acumate ES from Kenan Technologies. Acumate offers
two alternaitves methods to handle your situation.

If you want, I can provide additional information on Acumate as my company is a
VAR for the product.

It's true that Acumate offers a subset viewer that can work on a
stand-alone PC, but I didn't think it offered full calculation
functionality (ie Multiway on a client), unlike many of the other
OLAP tools which do offer more or less the whole product on a
stand-alone machine.  This becomes important if the task consists
of more than just off-line viewing.

As I wrote in an earlier note in this thread, Acumate runs standalone on
MS-Windows, albeit using the WIN32S DLL (which is also required by
certain other products.)  What doesn't work is using Acumate on MS-Windows
as a server for a local or remote client, apparently because the Acumate
uses RPCs for client-server communications and MS-Windows won't act as
an RPC server.  This problem doesn't occur for Windows NT or Windows 95,
or at least it won't if Windows 95 ever shows up.

I know this because I'm looking for a fully-functional, stand-alone
MS-Windows time-series database and have had to check these issues out
recently, so this thread is a real question for me except that my needs
go beyond a read-only snapshot.
