I've just started using Windows 8.1 and have VS 2013 installed. I have BE 2.9 XML version up and running. I am about to install SQL Server 2008 on this VM but will this version work with BE2.9? Nowhere can I find DB requirements?

There seems to be some"skeleton" folders installed out of the box with Windows 8.1 for SQL Server 2012. Will this affect a correct install of SQL Standard 2008 (have to use this as this is what we are using on live server)?

And where are the steps in the documentation for converting from XML to DB?

Thanks in advance :-)

I was successfully able to install SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard using these instructions:

I was able to locate info on converting to DB here:

Hopefully these are up to date as I haven't tried it yet.
