MAP SQL Server Express 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all

    I can't find the service "SQL Server Express 2012" or service "MAP Toolkit" Doesn't MAP use SQL Express?

  • No, starting with MAP 7 we started using SQL Server 2012 Express LocalDB which only runs when MAP runs and does not run as a service so that you aren't using system resources for SQL when you aren't running MAP.

    Edit: To access the LocalDB instance through SSMS, use this for the server name: (localdb)\MAPToolkit
