I am using visual studio 2005 and I am having a problem publishing a windows application that uses SQL server.  The users who is trying to install is getting an error that they cannot connect to SQL server.  They do not have a SQL server license which they should not need.

1. WHen publishing my application is there anything else I need to specify or include so all the SQL data and tables are included?

We need a bit more information about how the project is setup. Are you attaching a SQL Database from your App_Data folder, or are you connecting to a full SQL Server? Is the person installing the app on the same network as you?

If your app uses SQL Server and it is being installed on a client site then the client needs a SQL Server available.

You installer should be able to install SQL Server engine if it's not already available on the Client machine. And if your connection string requires a specific Database as your Initial Directory you will have to create it while installing.
