  • hi,

     

    im using visual studio 2005.  if my application uses an attached database file for storage and data binding, when i install it on a user's machine, will i also have to install SQL Server or SQL Server Express if they dont have it?

    Yes, you have to. But in case of SQL Server Express it's free and really easy to deploy.

  • yeah i've already checked out the white paper on embedding SQL server express and it definitely seems doable.

    thanks!
