Aaaand we’ve got some news regarding the Management Studio download links for SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 3 (see last post about this here).
Microsoft released the Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2012 on November/2015, so right now it’s a good time to get the latest SP and tools for it. With the development now focused at SQL 2014 and SQL 2016, this could be the final big Service Pack for SQL2012.
As before, the key is looking for the SP3 download page, and then select only the minimum file you will need. For most users, that will be “ENU\x64\SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe”. Some people may need the other packages, but those folks should know what they are looking for already. There goes the new link:
