I am working on a project which is in on client server architecture(Network), I want to place my Database(Sql Express 2008) on centralised server , and my .net windows application should be able to access them at client Machines.

What are the minimum softwares need to be installed on server to run sql database such that multiple client applications are able to connect simultaneously?

Provided you use, you never need to install anything else on the client.
The server has to have the server installed, there's no way around that.
You might want SQL Server Compact instead, but you still need to install it.

The server will need only its operating system (Windows) and the database engine. It won't even need the "advanced tools".
Just be sure to open the appropriate network port.
