I need MSDTC(Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator) in one of my application. I am not sure whether it is available on Sql Server Express editions.

I googled on MSDN and haven't got clear answer on this. It seems with googling that it is avaialble but not started when sql server is installed.
