Put the SQL Server CD in, and choose AutoRun.

Its on the clients computer and i will more then likely remote into it..
Phillip BurtonDirector, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
If you can't put in the CD, then download it from Microsoft. You may need the license key, though, which would be in the CD box.

Can you give me a link?
Phillip BurtonDirector, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
Can you give me a version.
vbnetcoderAuthor Commented:
I'm not sure yet .. they have not gotten back to me.  If for some reason they come back that they don't have sql server at all would it work to use one of the free versions of SQL Server
Phillip BurtonDirector, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
You could use an Evaluation edition for 180 days. There's also a Developer edition, but that's only for test environments.
vbnetcoderAuthor Commented:
How about the express version?
Phillip BurtonDirector, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
The Express version supports limited SSRS features.

vbnetcoderAuthor Commented:
OK if they have SQL Server 2012 where would i go to download just the SSRS stuff
Phillip BurtonDirector, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
You can't just download the SSRS stuff. You download the entire installation, and then you select as part of the installation only those features you want to install.
