SQL Server 2014 ClickOnce bootstrapper packages
Visual Studio 2013 comes with bootstrapper packages for 'SqlExpress2008R2', 'SqlExpress2012' and 'SqlLocalDB2012'. SQL Server 2014 was released earlier this year but bootstrapper packages are still unavailable. Please release the bootstrapper packages.
Although it would be possible to create a package by myself there are a few problems which make this difficult and undesirable:
- What are the fwlink links for download packages from Microsoft's website
- What are the public keys for the packages
LocalDB in particular is supposed to be used as a replacement for SSCE which is deprecated. How can we use it if there's no simple way to deploy it? It would be very very simple for Microsoft to update and release a package so why haven't they?

... and also for 2016 LocalDB... please.

Yes, I agree, Microsoft should have their own

I create a package for SqlLocalDB2014 and SqlLocalDB2014SP1 which you can get from GitHub:
build it yourself... geez! lol

It is a big problem, I dont understand why Microsoft doesn't have yet a correct bootstrapper for SQL localdb 2014 and Installshield 2014 have one. I hope Microsoft will put hands on it soon.
