    VB.NET Databases without SQL Server?


    I am just learning database programming in VB.NET, and all of the techniques
    for connecting to a database that I have found require SQL Server to be running.
    I don't really want to set a SQL Server up. Can I just read and write to
    a database without a data server somehow?

    You can either use the Access JET engine, or use the MSDE edition of SQL
    Server that comes with VB.NET.
    It's copied onto your PC with Visual Studio .NET, but the setup has to be
    run manually.

    Cheers,

    Do I need to run manual setup to use the Acess JET engine or can I do the
    whole thing programmatically?
