I have installed VS2010 Pro Trial (with the intention of buying VS2010 Pro). If I understand well, during the installation, SQL Server 2008 Express was also installed. I wonder if there are any clear instructions somewhere of how to upgrade from the (existing)
SQL Server 2008 Express to SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition. I have already spent hours researching and I am very confused with the various editions of SQL Server 2008! :( (It took me forever to realize that SQL Server 2008 Express with SP2 is NOT the same
as SQL Server 2008 R2 Express since many of the links of the R2 site forward one to 2008 pages!!! :( )
And a side question... Is there a way (that I obviously haven't figured out yet!) to manage SQL Server Express (2008 plain or 2008 R2) from OUTSIDE VS? (I'm an old programmer from the VS6/MSDE era :P )
Thanks for your patience and any responses!
