Default Does Visual Studio already include a database

Does Visual Studio 2012 already include a database, or do I need to download one, such as SQL Server?
Thanks! Mike

Hi there,

Visual Studio 2012 installs SQL Server 2012 Local DB edition, which is a version of SQL Server used for development. You need to address it as (localdb)\v11.0 in your connections.

You can also use SQL Server Express or the Developer Edition, which both need to be installed separately.

Cheers,

Imar
