I want to develop a simple application which runs on single computer (just runs in one mechine) and did not need network. Program has to store some data in database and show them for printing. I have no experience with real-word program so I confused here: If the program is so simple why should I use sql-server or crystal report; What is benefit of using them? What is benefit of not using them? I can use a Sqlite file or sdf file or sql-server for storing data and I can generate a html file or use crystal-report for printing the data. But which one is better strategy and why? How exprenced programmer write this kind of application?
Note: I asked same question in other forums but thay closed thread beacuse it's not like pool or... But I think there must bu rules or suggestions in developing whish are different from one case to another
