Organizations will gain deeper insights into all of their data with new capabilities that go beyond business intelligence to perform advanced analytics directly within their database and present rich visualizations for business insights on any device.You can also gain the benefits of hyper-scale cloud with new hybrid scenarios enabled by new Stretch Database technology that lets you dynamically stretch your warm and cold transactional data to Microsoft Azure in a secured way so your data is always at hand for queries, no matter the size. In addition, SQL Server 2016 delivers a complete database platform for hybrid cloud, enabling you to easily build, deploy and manage solutions that span on-premises and cloud.


SQL Server 2016 SP2 contains fixes to issues that have been reported through our customer feedback platforms and Hotfix solutions provided in SQL Server 2016 Cumulative Update 2 through Cumulative Update 8. Service Pack 2 also includes supportability and scalability enhancements, and addresses issues that have been reported through the Windows Error Reporting system.


After downloading and running the installer, you may perform an immediate Basic installation of the SQL Engine, a full Custom installation, or download the media only. If you select to download media only versus doing an installation, two media download formats are available to the folder of your choice:

Log in to (it is free to register), navigate to Downloads, then search for the product you want to download. At this moment SQL Server 2019 and 2022 are available. Choose the edition, the format and the language, then press Download. This way you can get also the non-English installers.


If you are accessing this page from a non-English language version and want to see the most up-to-date content, please select Read in English at the top of this page. You can download different languages from the US-English version site by selecting available languages.


The simple answer is no - there is no free lunch. The three supported methods I know of to obtain SQL Server 2016 Developer Edition all involve either registering or paying. This isn't a bad thing, IMHO; you and I have both given up our e-mail addresses in exchange for things far less valuable than a used-to-be-$49-or-$59 piece of software. But read on, as there is a fourth option that might be more palatable.


A few people have objected to signing up for Dev Essentials, but in addition to providing ready access to SQL Server 2016, there are a bunch of other benefits too, such as free access to PluralSight. This route really shouldn't be dismissed, IMHO - again, other than giving up an e-mail address, there's nothing to lose.

When you click Continue, you will be prompted to download the file SQLServer2016-SSEI-Eval.exe. This is the new basic installer they blogged about recently. Yes, that file name looks alarmingly like the Evaluation Edition of SQL Server, but bear with me. Once it's downloaded, run it, and choose Custom on this screen (the Basic option is the real sweet spot of this new basic installer, but we're not going to use that option today):


This will create a folder called Evaluation, in the chosen media location, and download the ISO contents there. They'll already be extracted, so you can run setup without having to mount an ISO (if you want an ISO instead, choose Download Media instead; further information about that path can be found down below). Inside that is the traditional Installation Center you're probably already very familiar with, and the installer should launch that after the download finishes. If not, just navigate to the folder manually, and run SETUP.EXE. Then choose "Installation" > "New SQL Server stand-alone installation or add features to an existing installation" and proceed through setup as you usually do. On the "Installation Type" screen, choose "Perform a new instance of SQL Server 2016." On the next screen is where the magic happens:


If you have MSDN already (check with your employer or educational institution), this is pretty easy. Just go to Subscriber Downloads, click on SQL Server 2016, and the Developer Edition ISO will be one of the options:


When you build a web installer that puts a fancy interface around calls to URIs, it's hard to really keep those URIs secret. I've seen people already point out that you can download the Dev-specific basic installer from the following URL, without having to sign up or register for anything:


Now, keep in mind, that fwlink may change, especially if they roll future CUs/SPs into the package, and the GUID-based URL behind it may change also. But for now this seems to be a bit of a back door - it downloads the new simple installer for Developer Edition (SQLServer2016-SSEI-Dev.exe), and then the process is identical to the Eval Edition steps above, except that things are labeled Developer instead of Evaluation. But just to do something slightly different, let's choose Download on that initial screen instead of Custom:


When it's complete, you will find an ISO file (SQLServer2016-x64-ENU-Dev.iso, not the extracted contents), which you can mount and run setup from. If you want the extracted setup files instead of an ISO, stick with the approach using the Custom option I described above.


An e-mail address is a small price to pay for Developer Edition. But for anyone using any of the free editions of SQL Server 2016, you're already giving up something else to get it: telemetry data. As you can read about in KB #3153756, Connect #2775205, and a Brent Ozar blog post, the collection of feature usage data has switched from a default of opt-out in previous versions to a default of opt-in in SQL Server 2016. Further, they have made it a bit harder for users of the free editions (Evaluation, Developer, and Express) to turn off this phone-home functionality (I show how in a post back in April). I suspect most users of these free editions either won't notice this change (which is why folks like Brent and I try to beat the drums about it), or will notice but won't go to the effort to disable it. My fear is not that private data will be transmitted to Microsoft and they will use it in some nefarious way, but rather that someone with HIPAA or similar constraints will inadvertently go out of compliance, and I don't even fully comprehend the potential scope of consequences there.


Note that the ISO you ultimately get, whether it is extracted or not, is RTM, so it does not have the GDR fix from KB #3164398, and it won't be updated with any CUs, either. They usually only post new downloads to MSDN when they have built a fresh ISO with a new service pack slipstreamed, though I don't know how that will change with their frequent changes to the servicing model and release strategy. Please use the check for updates feature during setup, regardless of which approach you take.


Thanks for the post. It is very helpful. I have one query. In our team, we are 20 developers and 5 Testers. All our developers got MSDN subsctiptions and We are using SQL server developer edition. My Question is what about Testers? they have a single database server (shared) and our application is deployed on this server. Now all 5 testers need to test the application. These 5 do not have MSDN subscription Can they use SQL Server Developer edition in that shared server for free? or they still need MSDN subscription for all of those?


I've installed SQL Server 2016 Evaluation Version and have now purchased the full version via Microsoft Open Licensing. There are no keys available to download through my Volume License Portal for this product, even though the product is listed.


You must download the ISO from your Microsoft Open License Portal and run it. Then choose "Edition Upgrade". The product key is pre-filled from your specific license, so you don't need to fill it in.


I downloaded the destination ISO, started the setup from the ISO (not the installed one) and the product key is pre-filled. But still the check in advance gives a warning, that the Edition Downgrade from Evaluation to Standard is invalid.


SQL Server 2016 final release SQL Server 2016 RTM is now available for free download for evaluation and trial by data professionals, database administrator, SQL developer and Business Intelligence professionals.The first general available date for SQL Server 2016 was announced as June 1st, 2016. And now database administrators, DBAs and SQL developers can easily download the most powerful data platform tool developed by Microsoft from MSDN Subscriber Downloads portal or from TechNet Evaluation Center.


Data professionals can evaluate the free public available SQL Server 2016 download from Microsoft TechNet Evaluation Center.This version which is distributed via Evaluation Center is the final release of SQL Server 2016 aka RTM release.One disadvantage of Evaluation Edition when compared to Developer Edition is it has a limited period of use as 180 days.Besides Evaluation Edition, you can choose to install the SQL Server 2016 Developer Edition which is free for development purposes on the other hand has all features introduced with Enterprise Edition.
