I have SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer Edition installed on my development box. I purchased SQL Server 2014 Developer Edition and was trying to do an upgrade. The upgrade didn't go well at all. I tried downloading the Upgrade Advisor, but that didn't work, because it wanted something else. The link pointed to by the setup didn't work, it pointed to a page that isn't there. So then I decided to download the whole Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014 Feature Pack, and it started installing a boat load of stuff in, well I'm not sure what order. That didn't go well either, and I'm sure it's because whatever it needs to install wasn't being installed in the order that it needs to be installed in.
So, I'm not sure where I stand at the moment.
I just got into SSMS 2008 R2 and took a quick look at a table. It's still there, so I guess I've not lost anything.
So, I need help in finding out how to properly install SQL Server 2014 Developer Edition, trying to do an upgrade from SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer Edition. What software packages need to be installed so that the Upgrade Advisor can work? And what order should they be installed in?
