How to download and activate SQL server 2012

Last Modified: 2020-12-23
Our customer requested to install Win2012 with SQL Server 2012.
I could not find SQL server in VLSC portal.  I can see only 2014 SQL server
I Googled but no joy.
Appreciate if someone can guide us on how to install and activate SQL server 2012
If I am not mistaken license key is embedded with the download.
I tried to reach MS licensing team and could not open a ticket as they have some issue with the support portal.
