I'd like to know what Microsoft components need to be installed for this new LocalDB to run on a users machine.
Now in CTP3: SQL Server Express LocalDB LocalDB is a new lightweight deployment option for SQL Server Express Edition with fewer prerequisites that installs very quickly. This makes it ideal for developers who need an embedded SQL Server database for desktop applications or tools. LocalDB has all of the same programmability features as SQL Express, but runs in-process with applications and not as a service. It is available as part of the SQL Server Code Name “Denali” CTP3 download.
The above is from Microsoft's website New in CPT3
This sounds like the perfect SQL database for small one-user desktop applications. I'm trying to find out what I need to include in an install. I want to use this as an embedded database but I don't know if I need to install any Microsoft components or make sure that any other Microsoft components have previously been installed.
Does anyone know what Microsoft components need to be installed in order for this new LocalDB to run? Is there an installer out there that will automatically detect the presence of the necessary components an install them?
