Hello

I want to make a standalone program that (for example) is for a very small supermarket that stores in a database their stock. Now, I dont think it is neccesary to install MySQL Server on a client's computer so how do you "embed" it so to speak into the C# program?

Please ask any questions if they are not clear.

Thank you :)

You can't embed MySQL/MSSQL Server (they have to be installed), but SQLite may serve your needs.

Perhaps you can use Excel to store the data and connect to it via C#.
You could perhaps also have a look here

Fine by me :) As long as its compatible with desktop applications and web applications. I want to be able to know online the stock I have as well....
