SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition download

    Question

  • Hi All,

    We recently had SQL Server 2012 Enterprise licenses. Now i got a requirement to install a developer edition of sql server 2012. Can you please let me know where can i get the developer edition ? sorry for the dumb question.

    if i download a trial version from microsoft site and enter same key of enterprise edition, does it mean it the edition will be developer edition.

    My question is does developer/standar/enterprise depends on the KEY that we enter ?

  • Hello,

    The PID is tied to the license.

    Hope this helps.

    Does the lSQL Server edition depends upon the KEY?


    PID determintes the edition of SQL Server. So Media (setup.exe) is same for all edition its the PID (key) that determines the edition of SQL server.

  • Thanks Alberto/ Chirag,

    So, if we have a developer edition installed on a box. Later in future if we want to make the developer edition as a Enterprise edition, than we can change it just by changing licensing key ?
