Hi all! Is it possible to embed sql server express in an application without installing it like it is in mysql and sqlite3? I would like to link my application to a static or dynamic library if Microsoft makes that provision so that I will not install the server on the user machine.
I tried to do this using mysql but for three days now I have not been able to initialize the server as library initialization fails. SQLite3 makes that provision but does not encrypt the data. I don't know if it is possible with Microsoft SQL server. I will be writing the application in C++. Thanks in advance.
