Hi. I'm really new to the database-thing. I'm trying to build an app using C# in VS 2010 that requires a DBMS be held inside the app not like the usual having connection to the outside the project. I mean when I want to pass the published app to a person I don't want to make him install MySQL Community Server to make things work! Please don't judge me why I'm using MySQL! I also searched Code Project and googled the topic but didn't find anything useful at all. Thanks a lot :)

I'm confused. Are you saying you want your app to use a MySQL database but when it is deployed you don't want your app to have a MySQL dependency?

No, this is not how MySQL and other SQL servers are designed. You need to install it on the target computer to have your application working, period. There is no such concept as "embedding".
