Honeywell Experion HS to SQL Connection?

Statements from Experion HS R430 Configurator Reference Guide (March 2015)

Experion HS is a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software package that provides an entry level solution for small to medium sized applications with up to 15 Station clients and up to 16050 SCADA points. Experion HS R430 runs on the Microsoft Windows 7 (64 bit) Professional Edition operating system and Microsoft's SQL Server 2012 R2.

Further on:
SQL Client Access Licenses Experion S R430 uses the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 R2 technology as a part of the system infrastructure. Microsoft's licensing policy requires us to provide SQL Client Access Licenses (CALs) to all users of this embedded technology.

It would appear that running SQL involves licensing, and when properly licensed, SQL is an integral part of the properly installed package.
