Hi;

My application require "osql.exe" to backup SQL database from SQL2005 server, how can I install "osql.exe" on to the application server without installing the entire package of SQL 2005?

I tried to select the Client Management Tool only from SQL 2005 Cd but does not work.

OSQL is specific to SQL 2000.  You should be using SQLCMD for 2005+.

You can download the command line client (SQLCMD, as BrandonGalderisi mentioned) from the feature pack page at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=d09c1d60-a13c-4479-9b91-9e8b9d835cdc&displaylang=enhttp://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=d09c1d60-a13c-4479-9b91-9e8b9d835cdc&displaylang=en

You will need both                         SQLServer2005_SQLCMD.msi and                         sqlncli.msi (native client libraries).
