This might be a dumb question, but if I have SQL Server 2008, is the upgrade to R2 free? I see on the download page for R2 that the download is an 180 day evaluation.

We moved our databases to new hardware today (using copy database wizard)
The new hardware should be better than the old one.
We went from 28 GB ram to 128 GB.
We went from 16 cores to 32 cores (with even more cache etc.). We also moved from external SAN with 40 disks to intern disks (8

What is the upgrade path from theÃÂ trial edition to the registered Enterprise edition?
can I just type in a number somewhere, or do I need to do a complete reinstall?
how can I find out exactly how many days left in the trial?
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?
I am having a problem with my graphs disappearing after upgrading to Reporting Services 2008 R2. The graphs are visible if the report is run from the Report Mananger but if the report is viewed from an ASP web app using ReportViewer 9.0 they
