    Here’s how to find the name of all SQL Express instances installed on a computer. To get a lsit of SQL Express instance names, run this command in an elevated command prompt:

    SQLCMD -L

    Alternatively, run this command:

    osql -L

    ❗ Note: You must use a capital L for the command line switch!

    It takes about a minute to run and will return a list of all SQL Express instances installed on the computer.
