Download SQL Server Express
Microsoft SQL Server Express Editions are the free, easy-to-use, lightweight version of SQL Server.
Before installing any version of SQL Express, it is recommended that you check with your IT or Database Administrators to see if any existing instances of SQL Server are installed on your network and can be used for the ARGUS EstateMaster Enterprise Database.
Please Note: The free SQL Server Express Editions have limitations on database size, so for larger enterprises, we recommend using Workgroup, Standard or Enterprise Editions. For more information visit the SQL Server 2012 Editions website.
