Hi, wonder if I can get some advice?
As I'm sure is the case with many others using these Newsgroups, I wear both
developer and dba hats. I wore my dba hat to install the SQL Server 2005
Management Studio tools on my workstation in order to administer the servers
I look after.
However I'm about to don my developer's hat to work on a small-scale app for
which I'm thinking of using SQL Server Express as the back-end for a Visual
Studio 2005-designed interface.
The question is, can I safely install SQL Server 2005 Express on my
workstation alongside the Standard edition? As far as I know the answer is
'yes' but I'd like to be sure before I do anything so would very much
appreciate some advice first.
