Sql Express 2005

If i install the SQL express 2005 in main PC link with workgroup linking,
does i need to install the .Net framework in each workstation PC ?

Tsair,

You don't need to install the framework in order to use SQL Server from
other machines. You can still use ADO or other unmanaged technologies to
connect to it.

Hope this helps.

If it is Windows XP or Windows 2000 or later, you are set. ADO is
already on the box. If you feel you need the latest version, go to
http://msdn.microsoft.com/data/mdac/default.aspx and download the latest
version. It contains all the SQL Server drivers you'll need.

Regards
