SQL Server 2019 on a Windows 11 Pro machine

Copper Contributor


I just got a new computer and I would like to install SQL Server 2019 Developer's edition. I am running Windows 11 Pro.


I am getting the copy of the program here:



I get an error:

A required file could not be downloaded. This could mean the version of the installer is no longer supported. Please download again from the download site. https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=866662"


Windows 11 Pro is supported:



How can I download the program?


Thank you

Same issue occurring for myself, on a fresh Win 11 install, also tried to install express edition with same failure, even setup a Win 10 Pro VM to install and it failed with the same error.

I am surprised this issue is now 2+ weeks old.
