And what is your problem?

DON'T SHOUT. Using all capitals is considered shouting on the internet, and rude (using all lower case is considered childish). Use proper capitalisation if you want to be taken seriously.

its not matter just focus on question???

No. It does matter.
If you are rude to people then it affects how they respond to you.

If you come into my office and start banging on the desk and shouting "TALK TO ME! TALK TO ME!" then you are going to get a difference response that if you ask politely "Can I ask you a question?". And probably some bruises.
Shouting at people on the internet is not a good way to make friends and get help - it *is* a good way to annoy them and get no help at all...

A little politeness goes a long way, particularly when you want something from someone...

Moreover, what is the question exactly?
All I can see are affirmations; putting four question marks at the end of them does not make them questions either.

It shouldn't be necessary, and if it is, your application is probably badly designed.
You should not include SQL Server in your installation. There are a couple of reasons:
0) You can only distribute SQL Server Express for copyright reasons - not SQL Server full version.
1) They may already have SQL Server installed on the network. If so, then they will presumably want to use that version.
2) If they do have SQL server installed and you start proliferating SQL server Express instances, you are going to annoy the heck out of the database administrator...
3) A single site installation of SQl Server is a lot more likely to be backed up than a number of scattered version under user control.
4) Sql server is quite complex for a "normal" user to install and administer - it is not a good idea!
5) It will destroy the primary advantage of using Sql Server over SqlCE or SQLite - multiuser access. If everyone installs their own copy of SQL server, then you will have multiple copies of your database, each used by a single person. This will cause some confusion, and (depending on how you wrote the original database) may take some considerable effort to combine into a single instance when the problem is realized.
