Download new setup package of the IM server with built-in MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Express

This is a useful information for new and existing clients about installation of Bopup Communication Server on latest Windows 8 and 2012 releases. We made a new setup package of the server software and integrated Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition that can be installed as a built-in database server. We know that our regular setup for the communication server comes with built-in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express for both 32- and 64-bit systems. But here is a trouble with it on Windows 8 and 2012 because that SQL version is not supported by latest operational systems from Microsoft. Since Windows 8 is a mainstream today we decided to be closer to users and released a new installation file.

Yes, the new setup package is much bigger, it's size is above 115Mb while the setup file with built-in SQL Server 2005 is only about 62Mb. Since SQL Server 2005 is not supported by Windows 8/2012 then now regular Setup Wizard now detects and shows a warning dialog page if the SQL server has been chosen for installation on a local PC. That page contains description and link to our Downloads Center that offers a download of a bigger package especially built for Windows 8 and 2012.
