Need a so big as possible demo-database with real or better not real customers, invoices and products, for testing and demonstrating a program i'm writing. Anyone know if such a database is free to download somewhere?

Microsoft has a database called AdventureWorks and is available for free download here. Just chose your the platform that suits you.

To be honest sounds like you are looking for a complete accounting application with Customers, Invoicing, Inventory, etc.  as opposed to one single database.  What you are asking will not be in just one database.  I would look at a 30 day trial of Quickbooks, Peachtree (Sage 50c) or something similar.

No, im not looking for an application, I am making an application. I need raw data to feed my application.

Red Gate Data Generator will create data for you in your database and you even decide how many rows!

If you find any existing database, it won't just fit your own database schema and it might be a pain to convert it.

The Access Northwind database also has customer and product data.  You can download it and then convert it to MySQL or whatever else you want.
