SQL SERVER 2008 R2 Standard Evaluation Edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried using the Maintenance Edition Upgrade option to install my product license key.  The evaluation edition trial has expired.  The edition upgrade runs fine, however, after running the upgrade the mssql service will not start with an error "The trial has expired"

    How do I clear this without uninstalling and reinstaling from scratch.
