Why are you still using SQL Serer 7.0 ? that is like a version that is more than 15 years ago


#3

I don't think you can get it anywhere from MS official web site.


#4

Just checked it is not available with MSDN Subscription also.


#5

Maybe MSDE would do? (SQL 2000 wasn't it? ... too long ago for an old dinosaur like me to be able to remember!)

Couldn't you install a later version and set the compatibility level to 7.0?

It looks like SQL 2012 and 2008 R2 only allow compatibility back to to 2005 so you'd want something earlier. I don't know about 2008 (non-R2) but I'd assume SQL 2005 and SQL 2000 would be able to configure for 7.0. You may be just as stuck trying to find an install-able copy of either of these though.
