Anywhere I can download SQL Server 2005 Standard 64 bit media? (except from MS VLSC)
We have purchased a new MIS server which has Server 2008 R2 standard. We want to keep it 64 bit but unfortunately we don't have the SQL Standard 2005 64 bit media, only the 32 bit version. I have ordered from Phoenix software nearly 3 weeks ago but is still yet to arrive. It should be coming Wed but that is my last day for a while and I really want to wrap this server up before I go on holiday on Thu.
You use to be able to download the 180 day trial version from Microsoft but this now just diverts you to SQL 2008.
Is there anywhere I can download it (legally)...even this tial version? We can't use MS VLSC.
Thanks very much in advance for any help that can be ofered.
Not enought time to get it in...
Thanks for replying.
I'm only in until Wed and it's only me in the school so can't really order anything now and even if I did, by the time it arrived, probably wouldn't have time to finish the server install.
