  • Hello,

    Sql Server 2000 is no longer supported  since the release of Sql server 2008.
    You may always download the SP4 for Sql Server 2000, but that's all.

    You should think to use Sql Server 2008
    It is possible to download the Sql Server Entreprise 2008 Evaluation ( for 180 days ).It is free and you can "upgrade" from the evaluation edition to an official edition.

    It is a little difficult to find the trial download ( around the middle of the page )

    But be careful, there are many changes between Sql Server 2000 and Sql Server 2008 ( novelties and disappeared features ).
    You may have some incompatibilities if you try to use features which were depreciated with Sql Server 2005 and no more recognized with Sql Server 2008

    Don't hesitate to post again for more help or explanations

    Have a nice day

  • Hi

    There is no free version available for SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition. Instead it has a download for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Edition

    In case if you wished to try enterprise edition only, you can get an evaluation edition of SQL Server 2008 with all enterprise features and moreover it has very good manageability featues.This offers reliable, secure, scalable and easy to manage database valid for 6 months.

    It is located in the following link

  • Sreekar,

    this is not the problem....

    We are microsoft partner, but the version disponible in to site of microsoft is only Version License (VL), where the key is already automatically.

    I need a version where the serial key should be placed, because the my customer already have a key and cannot use my key of microsoft partner,understand ?

  • You might be able to get a media through the official channels as a microsoft partner. Try to get in contact with you PAM and see if he can order(/find) a media for SQL Server 2000.
