Rearm Trial Period for SQL Server 2016

    Question

  • Hi all, I was wondering whether anybody knows how to rearm the trial period for SQL Server 2016, I'm currently trialling SQL Server 2016 inside of a virtual machine with Windows Server 2016 and only have until February till the trial expires. Your help would be much appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    RocknRollTim

  • One would think that in 180 days you will be able to make a decision if SQL 2016 is something for you. :-)

    In any case, sign up to Visual Studio Essentials and you can get Developer Edition for free.

  • Hi RocknRollTim,

    It's very pleasant that you have got the suitable method. The Developer Edition has the same features and functions as the Enterprise Edition, however you can only  use it for development instead of using for business.

  • Hi Teige,

    I am aware I can only use The Developer Edition for development, thank you for clarifying once again.
