I have an installation of SQL Server 2005 Express, and I'm trying to upgrade it to SQL Server 2008 Express.ÃÂ During the installation, when it gets to the "Upgrade Rules" part, everything passes except for "SQL Server 2008 Feature Upgrade."ÃÂ It says the specified edition upgrade is not supported, butÃÂ according toÃÂ the upgrade matrix it should be.ÃÂ We plan on purchasing licenses for the Enterprise edition, but I would like to figure this out in the meantime.
I get the following rule check error when attempting to run the SQL Server Upgrade process on my Vista Ultimate machine:
---------------------------Rule Check Result---------------------------Rule "SQL Server 2008 Feature Upgrade" failed.
The specified edition upgrade is not supported. For information about supported upgrade paths, see the SQL Server 2008 version and edition upgrade matrix in Books Online.---------------------------OKÃÂ ÃÂ ---------------------------
And according to the Version and Editions Upgrades matrix, this should be possible?
Shouldn't I be able to upgrade to 2008 R2?

I am a little confused over the Depreciated feature in SQL Server 2008, listed
My confustion is whether this will be available with a backward compatibility mode or not?
I am in the middle of doing a Biztalk Server 2010 install on a developer machine. In the instructions it reads:
SQLXML 4.0 with Service Pack 1
Enables XML support for your SQL Server database and allows developers to bridge the gap between XML and relational data. You can create an XML view of your existing relational data and work with it as if it were an XML file. To install SQLXML 4.0 SP1,
see Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack
My question is, do I still need to install this if I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer? Thanks.
I am having problem installing SQL server 2008. The Feature selection is not showing up.
I tried to clean the registry for everything relating to SQL server but now it's not coming up.
Has a Feature Pack for SQL Server Denali CTP1 been released? If not, what is the expected time of its release?
I use some SQL Server feature pack objects for database maintenance (specifically: Native Client, CLR Types, and Shared Management Object [SMO]). The SQL Server 2008 R2 feature pack components I'm using do not seem to be compatible
with SQL Server Denali (ex. adding a login is throwing cannot write to property exceptions).
Information on an expected release timetable would be appreciated.
I want remove Reporting Services from SQL Server 2008 after I installed SQL Server 2008 standard edition. I run setup again and try to unselected Reporting Services in Feature Selection. However, it seems freezes every checkboxes, why?
