Free download of SQL Server for Windows 10 32-bit RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I'm not sure if the is the right place to ask this question, but I have had trouble finding a place where I could actually post.

    Is there a free download of SQL Server that will work in 32 bit? I have an x64 processor, but my OS is Windows 10 32-bit.  I don't really want to install another OS as it could mess up a number of my applications.

  • Hi Stuartdm,


    SQL Server haven't supported 32-bit Operation System since 2016, we can use SQL Server 2012 and 2014.


    Besides, when we install SQL Server 2012,2014 on Windows 10, we need to apply SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 1 or a later update and SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 2 or a later update.


    Best Regards,
