Wanting to know if there are any versions of AdventureWorks DBs available for download that are compatible with SQL Server 2008 (version 10.0.5500.0)? I noticed that the website only has R2 downloads available for 2008. I wanted to check before I am forced to upgrade to R2. Can anyone point me to a good location?

I uploaded AdventureWorks databases for 2012, 2008R2 and 2008. Each download zip file contains an mdf database file and ldf log file. This consolidates AdventureWorks databases for several SQL Server versions to one page. Please let me know what you think.
