- [Voiceover] I'll be working…with a SQL Server LocalDB utility.…Here is where to find it on your computer.…Start by looking in the C drive in your Program File folder,…and then navigate to the Microsoft SQL Server folder.…Here you can see all the versions of SQL Server…installed on your computer.…Your folders may be different from what I have…on my computer.…It depends on what editions of Visual Studio…and SQL Server you've installed.…Start by looking at the bottom folder, 130.…This represents the newest version of SQL Server…at the time I recorded this video,…which is SQL Server 2016.…
I wanna look in this LocalDB folder,…and then in the Binn folder.…I'm looking for this file,…sqlservr.exe.…This is the runtime exe for SQL Server.…When you run your database,…and it gets hosted inside SQL Server,…it's gonna be this executable that's running…on the computer.…Look at the Details on the Properties,…you can see that this is version 13.…So the way you think of this mapping…is version 13 is also SQL Server 2016.…
