I have developed a desktop application which database is in sql server 2008 R2.
When i want to run this application on another computer i have to install SQL server 2008.
Is there any option which help help me to avoid installation of Sql server.
at the time of installing the application a lighter version of sql installed on that system; so that i dont have to install sql server individually.

waiting for an affirmative answer.
Thanks in advance.

Just check if a SQL Server exists on that system and create your database in that.

1 solution

Depending on whether you want your application to be network capable, you could use an embedded database, such as SQL Server CE[^], or SQLite[^].

Hope this helps
