Hi ALL,

I am new here.
We see compliance report with some amount of "Microsoft SQL Server EXPRESS Edition 2012".
But we did not install Microsoft SQL Server EXPRESS Edition 2012.
We found that TrendMicro Officescan will install Microsoft SQL Server EXPRESS Edition 2012 for purpose of database.

Is SQL EXPRESS edition is free ?
We need to track it ?

Thanks

Albert

MSSQL Express is indeed free. The Lansweeper installer might also install this version on the computer you're installing it on if no MSSQL is found and SQL Compact is not selected. So this is normal.

While tracking doesn't seem needed, you could just make a group with all your MSSQL Express servers and set the license type to User based 0$. You can also use wildcards (ex: %Express%) to automagically select all servers. This way you'll have all servers nicely listed when viewing the license report page.
