In another posting, I received advise on installing SQL Server on a Laptop running OS ME. I appreciate the advise. I am learning SQL and would find it convenient to have SQL on my Laptop. Is there a trial version of the SQL Server 2000 Personal Edition? If yes, where can I download it? There are two trial versions that can be downloaded: Standard and Enterprise but no Personal Edition.
If I can't download a trial version of Personal Edition, is there any way to get the install the trial versions on the Laptop running ME? A friend and I are learning SQL. It would be convenient for each of us to have separate systems to practice with while learning.
If I can't run a trial version of SQL Server 2000 on my laptop, I would like to know that. I can't affort to purchase the SQL Server 2000 Standard ($12K) just to get a copy of the Personal Edition.
I do have a workstation that I can install the trial version on. But it is not very portable.
Thanks for your help.
