Is it possible to install CA Service Desk Manager with SQL Server EXPRESS EDITION?

If this is not possible, is there a workaround?
CA Service Desk Manager 12.x, 14.1 and 17.x
SQL Server 
We do NOT support SQL EXPRESS EDITION for CA Service Desk Manager (CA SDM). There are no known workarounds for using CA SDM against this edition as it is not officially supported\certified.

In addition, SQL Server Developer Edition is not supported/certified.  SQL Server Developer Edition lets developers build almost any kind of database application on top of SQL Server. It is licensed for use as a development and test system, not as a production server, and is an ideal choice for people who build and test database applications. 

Supported SQL Server editions are STANDARD and ENTERPRISE.
