Sql Server 2005 Express + AdventureWorksDB.msi

Apr 3, 2008 at 11:31 PM
I get the following error message when I try to attach the AdventureWorksDB. I'm running Windows XP Professional

The database 'AdventureWorks' cannot be opened because it is version 643. This server
supports version 612 and earlier. A downgrade path is not supported.
Could not open new database 'AdventureWorks'. CREATE DATABASE is aborted. (Microsoft SQL
Server, Error: 948)

Can someone help please? I've read other problem similar to mine but they deal with permissions issue and windows Vista. I've also made sure I downloaded the AdventureWorksDB.msi for sql server express 2005. Is there another version of AdventureWorksDB.msi I need?

You most likely have the 2008 version installed. Here is a link to the 2005 SP2 version:
