About the SQL Server License Terms

The Microsoft Software License Terms are copied to the local computer when SQL Server is installed. When multiple instances of the same edition and language of SQL Server are installed on the same computer, a single copy of the license terms will apply to all instances of that edition and language. The files are written to: %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\100\EULA\ or %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft SQL Server\100\EULA\.

When multiple instances of the same SQL Server edition and language are installed on the same computer, a single copy of the license terms will apply to all instances of that edition and language.

  • License_DEV_ENU.txt for SQL Server 2008 Developer, English language edition.

  • License_STD_ITA.txt for SQL Server Standard, Italian language edition.

  • License_UA_JPN.txt for SQL Server Upgrade Advisor, Japanese language edition.

  • License_SQLNCLI_ENU.txt for SQL Server Native Client, English language edition.
