SQL Server 2008 Installation Media

    Question

  • I no longer have the Installation Media (CD) for my Microsoft SQL Server Workgroup 2008. However, I do have the product key. I am looking to download this software on an upgraded server, but can't find any way to get the installation media. Microsoft stopped carrying it. Any ideas?

  • If you have  MSDN subscription you would get the installation files from their apart from that I dont think you can find installation files anywhere.

  • Hi, possibly this link https://www.microsoft.com/en-nz/download/details.aspx?id=1279

    Under install instructions there are self-extracting executables listed.

  • Actually the download link is not pointing to the installation file it is pointing to the HTML file and from thier you have to click on X64 executable. Even DVD image link is not working.

    Calm down, no one is tailgating,I dont know how word tailgating applies here. I just said it was giving different file to me and when I read install instructions I finally got it. Normally with MS when you click on download it starts downloading immediately
