  • Hi Zafar Iqbal,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Microsoft SQL Server is not included in the installation of visual studio, they are two products. SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) could be installed in visual studio 2015, which is a modern development tool that you can download for free to build SQL Server relational databases, Azure SQL databases, Integration Services packages, Analysis Services data models, and Reporting Services reports. With SSDT, you can design and deploy any SQL Server content type with the same ease as you would develop an application in Visual Studio. Or you could download SSDT in vs.

    Best regards,

    Joyce

  • Hi Zafar Iqbal,

    It has the localDB in the VS2015 community if you installed the SSDT, you could connect it directly under the Server Explorer window, and you could get the connect name under TOOLS->Options like the following screen shot:

    Thanks,
