Recently, someone claimed that CRM 4.0 could be installed on SQL Server Express Edition. I haven't tried this.
I know it is not listed in the implementation guide and would therefore say it is not supported - but it might work.
Can anyone confirm whether:
a) CRM 4.0 can be installed on SQL Server Express Edition ? (even if unsupported) and
b) If it can, whether this is supported.
