Is sql server express 2012 compatible with windows 8?


  • I was trying to know if I can install sql server express 2012 on windows 8, according to the system requirements mentioned on the downloads page of sql express, windows 8 is not included under the supported operating systems, on the other hand in this page titled "Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2012", windows 8 is mentioned within the supported operating systems, which one should I believe, unfortunately I can't try installing it because I don't have windows 8 yet and I need to know if I'll be able to use sql express before I install windows 8.

    Thanks in advance.
