Your question seems to be, "how can I use SQL Server without installing SQL Server?", to which the answer is, "you can't".

1 solution

So what do you expect to use to open and use the file in the manner it was meant to be used?

Trying to use that file without SQL Server will just result in you spouting all kinds of foul language due to massive amounts of frustration.
