Where can I download SQL Server 2016 express with advanced options


  • Is Dev Essentials the only option to get it? Can I provide this exe to my client since there is no download link online?

  • According to this article, you need to choose Custom install in order to download and install advanced features using the regular downloaded installation package:
    The SQL Server Basic Installer

    Hope that helps,
