My client has an existing Server 2003 running SQL 2000 Standard. It is a Thompson Router IP Master mdf database with the ldf file. It is used to query the mdf for patents and trandmark cases.
The Client is moving to a Win 8 Laptop and needs to have a SQL version installed with the management component so she can attach this database.
I have tried the express versions of 2005 and 2008 and I cannot see how to attach the database. I need something that will work, and I am NOT a SQL user/knowitall, so I need some direction. I need to get it working in SQL on a WIN 8 laptop.
