I need to do some tests on a MS SQL (not MySQL) database. But without the burden of having to open a hosting account, create a remote database, connect to it, and remotely insert a million records.

I need to create a MS SQL Database locally on my computer only to be used on my computer - and I need to be able to import it using Navicat software.

How can we create a local MS SQL database on OS X [Yosemite]?

    Parallels, VMWare Fusion or Virtual Box + Windows + MSSQL Server – sdmeyers Feb 5 '15 at 21:34
  • MS SQL server only runs on Windows and so you need a VM or run in Bootcamp – mmmmmm Feb 5 '15 at 21:38
