        • Note: You must have administrative rights on the computer to install SQL Server Express.

            Step 1: Install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later from the Microsoft Download Center.

            Step 2: Download SQL Server Express by clicking the SQLEXPR.EXE or SQLEXPR32.EXE link later on this page. To start the installation immediately, click Run. To install SQL Server Express at a later time, click Save.

              Note: SQLEXPR32.EXE is a smaller package that can be used to install SQL Server Express on 32-bit operating systems only. The larger SQLEXPR.EXE package supports installing onto both 32-bit and 64-bit (WOW install) operating systems. There is no other difference between these packages.

            Step 3: Follow the installation instructions provided in the Readme. For known issues, review the Release Notes.
