You could use an Access database, or SQLite, or SQLCE - node of them need SQL server, and need little additional DLL installation (which should be easily handled by your installation program).

In this case you can look at MSAccess (or even Excel) as an option.
If the parameters you want to store on the client are very few, you can consider an xml configuration or an ini file.
