Apr 24, 2010 at 1:26 PM


first I'd like to ask if there is other why to avoid install the SQL SERVER express and replace it with some DLL?I think it's too big to add the SQL SERVER express 2008 as pre-requite (99MO) for an application that size is 20 MO ?Maybe there is just some dll to add them and use the SQL SERVER EXPRESS 2008 to with the application after deploying it to customer?!

My question IS how to install database to my client within the Setup Porject? there is script or a code to imlement that ?please help me


I'm using visual studio 2008 ,C#,SQL SERVER 2008, in my application I'm using the LINQ TO SQL
