Hello,

I have few queries regarding SQL Server setup,

Please note that i want to use it for developing applications(not commercial) using VS 2005 and want to go for some trial/free download available on net.

- Which SQL Server Edition should i install for my requirement (i.e. simply creating and maintaining databases etc.)

- Second, i downloaded SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition and SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, but could find only three configuration tools, which i don't feel are of any help to me.
Can anybody there tell me when these versions are used or even direction to some web-link will be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You need to install Microsoft SQL Express Management Studio Express to manage the database and maintenance.

You can download from the link below.

Let me know if you have any problem.

Or just spend $40-50 bucks and get SQL Server Developer Edition. The developer edition gives you all of the power of the Enterprise Edition, which is what you large corporations are going to use.
