Cannot download SQL Server 2016 Evaluation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I'm trying to install SQL Server 2016 evaluation copy on Windows 2008 server, downloaded "SQLServer2016-SSEI-Eval.exe" and initiated it as Run as Administrator. It prompts for download media, custom and Basic installation. If i click on any of these options, it failed on below error:

    Oops..

    Network issues have prevented the download of the SQL installer file "https://download.microsoft.com/download/E/1/2/E12B3655-D817-49BA-B934-CEB9DAC0BAF3/SQLServer2016-x64-ENU.box". Please try again later.

    But i can directory access the URL: https://download.microsoft.com/download/E/1/2/E12B3655-D817-49BA-B934-CEB9DAC0BAF3/SQLServer2016-x64-ENU.box and download the file.

    Could anybody please let me know what is causing this issue.

    Thank you,

    Arun

  • Hi-

    recheck again-

    SQL Server 2016 DVD (ISO) Image: You can use the ISO image to Mount and/or burn your own DVD.  After the SQL Server installer downloads SQLServer2016-x64-<language>.iso:

    • Right click on SQLServer2016-x64-<language>.iso and select “Mount”.  Locate and execute setup.exe on the mounted device to begin the installation.
    • Using your DVD-burning software, select the options to burn a DVD from an .ISO image. After burning the DVD, locate and double-click Setup.exe on the DVD to begin the installation.

    SQL Server 2016 CAB file: The SQL Server installer will download the following compressed files:

    • SQLServer2016-x64-<language>.box
    • SQLServer2016-x64-<language>.exe

    Once the download has completed, double click on SQLServer2016-x64-<language>.exe to begin the installation process.

    Please go through the linke redme with more details -how you need to be move on.

  • Seems like you may not have some network problem. But whatever that does not matter, as this never can succeed anyway. SQL 2016 does not run on Windows Server 2008.

    You find the hardware and software requirements here:

  • Thanks for the Reply, it was helpful.

    I wonder Windows 2008 Server is not supported for SQL Server 2008. Surprising :)
