SQL Server 2012: Offline Documentation October 24th, 2012

Vinod Kumar

With the installation of SQL Server 2012, a lot of people ask how to get the documentation offline. Every time we fire the F1 for help it tries to connect online for content. This is not always useful and people want to have an offline version when they are on the move and getting online is not an option. Just initialize the Help library Manager from the SSMS Tools –> Help –> Manage Help Settings. Select the Install from Online.


Select SQL Server 2012 and Add the Books Online + Developer reference and Select Update.


Another way to get the same as an offline version is to download it from the Download Center. “Product Documentation for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 for firewall and proxy restricted environments”. Please keep checking the Download Center for the latest update for the documentation.
