SQL Server (Optional)
Because the SQL sample requires the local database to be setup. You need to set up a local SQL database named FSharpSample with sa password = FSharpSample1234. You can use CreateFSharpSampleDatabase.sql or setup.exe to setup your database tables and populate
sample data. If you decide not to setup the database, some of the samples won't be compiled into the final binary result.
