This document shows how to modify the standard settings in SQL Server 2016 Express Service Pack 1 (SP1) installation for use with NaviEdit.

The best way is to use the SQL Server 2012 that is included in the NaviEdit installer. 
However, when using another version, e.g. SQL Server 2016, it should be installed before installing NaviEdit.

If any other version of the SQL Server is installed on the same computer, un-installation of this SQL Server is recommended. 
The NaviEdit database files used by NaviEdit are not removed when the SQL Server is uninstalled.

SQL Server 2016 supports Windows 8 and higher operating system versions.
