I installed a SQL Server 2008 Express R2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 machine on 15th february 2010.
Today I can't start the "SQL Server" windows service. I have tried manually, but the error is:
"Window could not start the Sql Server (SQLEXPRESS) on Local computer"
After trying to start the the "SQL Server" windows service, I have read on the Event viewer the following error:
"SQL Server evaluation period has expired".
After trying to launch the SQL Management studio Express 2008 I have read this erroe on a pop-up windows:
"Evaluation period has expired."
I though that the express edition was free. I need only to register or to buy?
How can I buy?
I am in hurry. Please let me know! Thank you very much.
