Dear all,

What is the command to install/setup the x64 version of SQL server 2012 on Windows 8.1?

just run setup.exe and it will detect the x64 version of Windows 8.1 and install the X64 edition ?

 or another x64 setup.exe for SQL server 2012?

MSSQL comes in version specific media, you will need 64bit media in order to install a 64bit version..


here is the step by step guide to installing MSSQL on win8, this is for enterprise but the steps are the same.

my developer edition has both x86 and x64 edition on the same CD, this is what I am worrying about

even the enterprise edition we have combine both x86 and x64 on the same media, how to know which one is installing ?

if you look in the folders each version should have its own setup.exe

that's what I am thinking if the setup.exe will detect the x64 and run the x64 component.

you can install the 32bit version on a 64bit platform, so if they have the same exe than the version you install will be one of the pre install choices
