The site will tell you how long the evaluation copy last but i will bet it will not be over 90 days. Probably more like 30 days.


SQL evaluation editions are 180 days.

Edit: I missed Gail's post.Hehe

I'm not going to bet you.:-)

I know it is over 30 days because I got an e-mail at 30 days telling me that I should purchase.

I may have misread the following link but it appears to state that it is good for 180 days?

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/bb671149

Download the fully functional Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Evaluation edition and try the latest features of SQL Server 2008 free for 180 days.

Hi all
I have been using SQL server 2005 Standard (32-bit).
I am planning to upgrade to 64 bit. But unfortunately I cant find a download link for SQl server 2005 Standard (64 bit). If any one knows the microsoft link, it would be a great help. Thanks a million.AD


No download needed, you can install it from the same disks you installed the 32-bit edition from. The licence is for SQL 2005 Standard edition, not specifically for 32-bit or 64-bit. You can install either.

For SQL 2005 version, the media is different for 32 bit and 64 bit. The same media does not work like SQL 2008 and above versions.

Out of curiosity, why would you want to install an outdated, unsupported and potentially unsecure version of SQL Server instead of a current fully supported and secure version?

Thanks Gail, I totally missed that fact
Cool
Thought the question was kind of odd but at that point there wasn't enough caffeine in the system.
