SQL Express with 4.0
I would like to install the free version of Kentico. I will be supporting a site that has Kentico 4.0. I'd like to do development & learn on my local computer.
If I download SQL Express will that be enough to work with Kentico free version?

My computer has:
Window 8 home - Should the be Windows 8 pro?
8 Gig Ram
.Net 4.0
Visual Studio 2010
IIS 8.0.9

RE:SQL Express with 4.0

Yes, Kentico CMS works with Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition.

Here is list of Kentico CMS System Requirements. And here are some other links you might also find useful: Complete Documentation, Portal Engine Tutorial and Installation Guide.
