    Smile Unanswered: Question about Microsoft SQL server

    Hi,

    I am trying to use a program by HP to work with printers. This program says it needs the Microsoft SQL server. I have googled this and tried to down load but it does not seem to work. I see there is a 2008 version and an express version. I am just looking for a free version that will work with the HP printer software.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Jeff

    A lot depends on just what the software needs... I'm not familiar with any HP Printer software that needs SQL Server, and I'm actually having a hard time imagining what Printer oriented software would to with SQL Server.

    Can you provide a URL link or a scanned image of the HP product specifications? That would help a lot.

    None of the SQL Server Editions that support Web Clients are free. HP may have a licensing agreement with Microsoft, since according to http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/.../c01857435.pdf the distributions from HP include the Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition.

    Based on the PDF I cited above that is provided by HP, as an end user you should not need to install or configure anything. The HP distribution ought to take care of everything for you when it installs the software.
