I am trying to change the FILESTREAM Access Level property on a SQL Server Express database. The Configured values section of the Advanced tab of my Server Properties dialogue box looks like so:

Server Properties - Configured

The Running values section looks like this:

Server Properties - Running

This is before and after a full restart of the computer. Am I right in thinking that SQL Server Express just doesn't support this option, or could there be another reason this is happening?
