    SQL Server installation on client machine

    just wondering if it is possible to install SQL Server 7.0 (server components)
    onto Win NT or 2000 workstations. The full version i.e. not Desktop Ed or
    client components.
    Tried to do it but get message during installation saying that only the client
    components will be installed.
    Or can I setup a database with only the client components installed?

    Re: SQL Server installation on client machine

    You can use the client setup (desktop ed) to manage a complete SQL server
    either on your PC or the server on a Win98/NT4.0/Win2K system. It is not
    possible to install the actual SQL Server to a desktop system; the installation
    file is looking for certain files that define a "server". If you create the
    database on your PC and you find that you need it on the actual database
    server, you can use the import/export or replication tools to move the database.
