upgrade SQL Server 2014 Express to SQL Server 2016 Developer Edition


  • I've got SQL Server Express 2014 64 bit 12.0.5203.0 installed on Win7-64.

    I'd like to upgrade it to the SQL Server 2016 Developer edition 64 bit.

    I'd like to have it completely replace 2014, keeping my passwords and setup and installed databases.

    Can I install over it and have it remove and delete 2014, or must I delete 2014 and then install 2016, setting everything up again from scratch?
