I have developed an application in ASP.NET and SQL Server 2008 database. My client needs to run the application on his local PC, and don't want to host the application live. So I need to install IIS server on his PC and host application there. But I don't want to install SQL server management studio on his PC and allow him to make changes with database. To have application running on his PC using SQL server database, what component of SQL server I need to install? In simple words, I don't want my client to make changes in database directly, but only through application. So what is the best solution for this?

Thanks in advance!! :)

You can install SQL Server Express only without the Management Studio.

Follow the link (it's for sql 2005 but the principle is the same) :[^]
