Issues trying to install BC 19 (2021 Wave 2) Demo

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for help trying to install the BC 19 (2021 Wave 2) Demo (on premise).

I am running Windows 10 Pro and SQL Server 2016 Express.

When I attempt to install BC19 Demo, I get the error message: The version of the SQL Server instance ‘BCDEMO’ is not supported.

I downloaded SQL Server 2019 Express, but when I try to install it, I get an error message: Oops… A required file could not be downloaded. This could mean that the version of the installer is no longer supported. Please download again from the download site.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?


Here is a link to an article that I hope with help:


I did the following to get BC20 Demo (BC 2022 Wave 1) installed locally.

(1) Uninstalled SQL 2016 Express
(2) Moved the BC20 download files off of my network folder and to the root of my C: drive and installed from there.
