Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Express LocalDB is a feature of SQL Server Express targeted to developers. It is available on SQL Server 2016 Express with Advanced Services.

LocalDB installation copies a minimal set of files necessary to start the SQL Server Database Engine. Once LocalDB is installed, you can initiate a connection using a special connection string. When connecting, the necessary SQL Server infrastructure is automatically created and started, enabling the application to use the database without complex configuration tasks. Developer Tools can provide developers with a SQL Server Database Engine that lets them write and test Transact-SQL code without having to manage a full server instance of SQL Server.

To install SQL Server 2017 Express LocalDB, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install sqllocaldb

To upgrade SQL Server 2017 Express LocalDB, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade sqllocaldb
