Sql-server – Adventure Works 2012

sql server

I downloaed adventures work 2012 on my server and when I try to open the file, it is (tried to be) opened by VLC media player. So I can't attach it to my SSMS. I tried to uninstall VLC media Player but it is not working. What should I do?

What kind of file did you download exactly? A zip? A BAK? An MDF and LDF?

I can't imagine that double-clicking a database file would give you the results you want, so don't do that.

Instead, open your SQL Server Management Studio and import/attach/restore (again, depending on exactly what kind of file it is).
