MS/SQLEXPRESS installation in Deployment

Post by Jiri » Sat Apr 22, 2017 12:39 am

Hello,
We are creating a very simple demo application, which should be (as typicall demo) installed localy on single computer (small database as well as VL windows compoments).
The aim is to made installation (and possible uninstallation) as easy as possible for demo users. In example (if possible) include MS/SQL installation into standard LANSA deployment package.
It is not standard option - LANSA standalone installation (XALONE template) requires already installed database before package installation.
Any idea how to simplify it?
In fact, MS/SQL Express in not mandatory, if this task would be more simple with MySQL, it can be used instead. The database contain only limited number of files and data (demo only) so performance etc. is not very important in this case.
