Microsoft SQL Server 2012 T-SQL Language Service

What is Microsoft SQL Server 2012 T-SQL Language Service?

The SQL Server cmdlets support operations such as executing Transact-SQL scripts or evaluating SQL Server policies.


Microsoft SQL Server 2012 T-SQL Language Service is a software program developed by Microsoft. The most common release is 11.1.3000.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 87 files and is usually about 2.96 MB (3,100,672 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 45% of users of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 T-SQL Language Service come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
