Re: how to obtain SQL Server FullText Search service?
You may be able to manually attach the database by opening up Sql Server Management Studio and right clicking databases and selecting attach.
You can browse here for adventureworks, which should be somewhere like:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\AdventureWor ks_Data.mdf
or, you can do a search for all files for *.mdf* and make note of those locations, then attach them to Sql Server in the same way as before once you know where they are located.
Alternatively, you can download the zip file instead of the msi installer which contains all of the databases, then unzip those to wherever you want them. Followed by a manual attach.
