When attempting to Upgrading SQL Server EXPRESS 2005 SP2 TO SQL Server
for Workgroups 2005, I have the following issue.
It keeps giving me an alert message saying ...
"To change an existing instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 to a
different edition of SQL Server 2005, you must run SQL Server 2005
Setup from the command prompt and include the SKUUPGRADE=1
When I do that, I end up with the same message, but continue along.
During the next steps, it reports my current sql server version to be
9.2.3042 (apparently workgroups) but it actually is 9.0.3042
I don't want to uninstall the old and reattache everything and setup
security again. Any options here??
PS - Dear Microsoft, if I want to upgrade a free product to one I
spent several hundreds of dollars for; just do it!
