Microsoft has just released AdventureWorks database for SQL Server 2012 RC0. I am very happy that now I will be able to play with this new sample database and base my various demo script around the same. Here is the link to download AdventureWorks 2012 RC0 database.
Please note this is just a data file. You will have to follow my earlier blog post to create database without log file read here.
Additionally this is sample database so install on your development environment. Recently I had seen this on few production database and when I asked production DBA why they exists, they told me it is ‘for practice’. I suggest you do your practice on your development box and not on production box.
