App Catalog

Is it possible to set up the App Catalog without an SQL database? And if we were to set-up with SQL express could we still use it with the Package Feed Module?

The AdminStudio Application Catalog (App Catalog) requires the use of Microsoft SQL Server in order to operate, this is a requirement spelled out in the System Requirements in the AdminStudio release notes:

https://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/adminstudio2019r2sp1/rn/AS2019ReleaseNotes.htm#asreleasenotes_31...

(This is the System Requirements for the current version of AdminStudio as of this post, please check out Flexera HelpNet for the latest version of AdminStudio documentation, including the Release Notes: https://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/?product=AdminStudio)

SQL Express is the free, limited version of SQL Server and can be used to host an AdminStudio Application Catalog, particularly when you're first evaluating the solution.  Do know that because it's free, SQL Express has some limitations compared to the full-feature licensed versions of SQL Server, particularly how large a single database, and thus Application Catalog, can get. More information on these limitations of SQL Express can be found on this third-party site here:

Using SQL Express or a full SQL Server instance to host an Application Catalog, the Package Feed Module functionality in AdminStudio would becomes available to use.
