.Net application development with SQL Server 2005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there,

    I want to develop a .net application using SQL Server as backend.
    For this, I have downloaded SQL Server Compact Edition and SQL Server Management Studio.

    However, I am not able to find the server name when trying for "New Server Registration".
    Any idea on what server name should i enter? or
    Do i need to download any other software as well?

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Are you developing some sort of mobile application? Generally SQL Server compact is for Mobile application.  You may want to download SQL Server Express edition limitted edition of SQL Server 2005/2008.  Also, when you install, ensure that you have installed database engine.
