Simple VS 2012 and SQL Server Question RRS feed

    I have VS studio 2012 professionnal.  When I install it does it install SQL Server alongside it?  If I had to guess it install SQL Server Express (Isn't that what Solution Explorer is?).

    So I don't have to download it and install with VS studio 2012?  All I have to do is download SQL Mangement Studio and install and it  will work.

    Many thanks for your replies and feedback. I don;t know much about this stuff.  There is alot of online help and tutorials but not much regarding this subject.

    Sql express is already installed with vs. You can manage your project db in solution explorer. But, to manage db with/without opening vs use management studio
