SQL Server 6.5 available for download with manuals

  • Hi, I've eventually managed to get a copy of SQL Server 6.5 and I've made it available for download for SSC users.

    You will need an FTP client (or command line!) Use 8-bit binary type (TYPE BINARY at cmd line) and a RAR extractor.

    Server: http://ftp.derekcolley.co.uk

    Username: sqlservercentral AT derekcolley.co.uk

    Password: ssc

    Filename: SQL65.RAR

    I'll leave it online for the foreseeable future. There is a manual included in the download.

    Install by using setup.exe in the I386 folder,documentation is in SQLBKS65. Extras scattered throughout inc. ISQL, DTS client and more.

    Enjoy!

    Note to developers:
    CAST(SUBSTRING(CAST(FLOOR(NULLIF(ISNULL(COALESCE(1,NULL),NULL),NULL)) AS CHAR(1)),1,1) AS INT) == 1
    So why complicate your code AND MAKE MY JOB HARDER??!:crazy:

    Worked just fine for me, even Windows Command Line.
    I'd guess you were thrown off by a copy/paste for user, not translating his spaceATspace into the @ sign, because he (smartly) doesn't want his e-mail floating around for spambots to grab.

    That said, thank you Derek, I just now grabbed a copy.

    Turned out there were CRC errors, so my performance test will have to go back to SQL Server 2000 SP4a from the good ol' MSDN CD's.

  • Hi derek. Thank you very much! Your download was providential  for me!!!
    I needed just to restore a DB and recover dates. But without that Setup I was in big troubles!
    Thanks again

  • I am trying to connect to an old SQL Server 6.5 server.  SSMS wouldn't help me.  Could you please have me connect to your FTP site so that I can conect and download SQL Enterprise Manager to connect to the SQL 6.5 instance

  • Rather than download SQL Server 6.5 from a random FTP site, you can download WinSQL Lite free and connect to your 6.5 database via that.

  • Thank you Tom. Let me try that.
