Hi
I am trying to demo sharepoint.
I have installed SQL Express 2008 on a Win Server 2008 box. All installed fine and have the express version with SP1. I have set the neccessary rights in SQL for the sharepoint AD accounts that were created (dbcreatror, security admin).
I have installed Sharepoint 2013 onto the same box. On the configuration wizard, when I try connect set up a new server farm, at the point where i specify configuration database settings, i receive the message:

"SQL server at ****\sqlexpress has an unsupported version 10.0.1600.22."

Will this work with SQL Express?

Hi,
no this will not work.
SharePoint requires at least any 64-bit edition of SQL Server 2008 R2 SP 1 or higher.
From MSDN:

Minimum requirements for a database server in a farm:
One of the following:
The 64-bit edition of Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
The 64-bit edition of SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485%28v=office.15%29.aspx#section4

And secondly - the version number you posted seems to be SQL 2008 RTM (so without service pack).

SharePoint databases must be Latin1_General_CI_AS_KS_WS and you can use the 64bit sql express and you need sql database 2008R2 at minimum.

Hi,
no, they are not conflicting. You need at least SQL 2008 R2 (not 2008) in 64bit edition (either Express, Standard ...). David just additionally mentioned the required collation.
