3 - Edition

3.1 - Express

3.1.1 - LocalDB (SqlLocalDB)

LocalDB is a lightweight version of Express that has all its programmability features, yet runs in user mode and has a fast, zero-configuration installation and short list of pre-requisites. Use this if you need a simple way to create and work with databases from code. It can be bundled with Application and Database Development tools like Visual Studio and or embedded with an application that needs local databases.

3.1.2 - Express (SQLEXPR)

Express edition includes the SQL Server database engine only. Best suited to accept remote connections or administer remotely.

3.1.3 - Express with Tools (SQLEXPRWT)

This package contains everything needed to install and configure SQL Server as a database server including the full version of SQL Server 2014 Management Studio. Choose either LocalDB or Express depending on your needs above.

3.1.4 - SQL Server Management Studio Express (SQLManagementStudio)

This does not contain the database, but only the tools to manage SQL Server instances, including LocalDB, SQL Express, SQL Azure, full version of SQL Server 2014 Management Studio, etc. Use this if you already have the database and only need the management tools.

3.1.5 - Express with Advanced Services (SQLEXPRADV)

This package contains all the components of SQL Server Express including the full version of SQL Server 2014 Management Studio. This is a larger download than “with Tools,” as it also includes both Full Text Search and Reporting Services.
