I am doing a proof of concept to explain the team using cubes improves the application's query performance. I am allowed to use VS 2008 BI tools. I am in need of the AdventureWorks2008R2 DW to be installed to write some mdx queries to query the cubes.
I have landed in this official website that has a list of files and none of them help me to install the
AdventureworksDW database. I have tried these methods
I have downloaded the adf file and while restoring thorough analysis server I get this error
Backup and restore errors: Error during Restore/Synchronization: the backup >store directory is damaged, so the operation cannot locate or process the >'BackupLog' node from the backup store file while reading storage directory >header. (Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services) I have found and exe path but the exe is removed from Microsoft followed by installation errors.
This link suggests an exe but is throwing error while installing.
Are there any better way to install it?
