Yes, just make sure your connection string points at that server.

you mean that i wont have problem with that like vs 2008 Express.
because i could not connect to sql server .
see link.--> http://upcity.ir/images2/40844471152477683294.jpg
there is no "sql server" in list.
it means in vs 2012 "sql server" is in list.is it Right?

Yes. But read this: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/586c2599-347e-489e-863c-79ae6ce7b9c1[^] - you can get problems if you install them in the wrong order. (I did, with VS2008 years ago and it took me a day to sort the mess out)
