I have an instance of SQL Server 2014 Eval installed and I want to upgrate it to the purchased copy which is 2014 Standard. When the install checks the prereqs I get a warning that the downgrade is not supported. But according to MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143393.aspx) "Upgrading from Evaluation Enterprise (a free edition) to any of the paid editions is supported for stand-alone installations, but is not supported for clustered installations." This is not a clustered installation so I am wondering if it is a false warning or not. Has anyone received this warning and successfully upgraded to a paid version? Thanks

Could be that you've enabled Enterprise settings on the databases and that's being detected.

I wouldn't recommend doing an in-place downgrade of this type anyway. May just be my paranoia shining through, but I'd uninstall and reinstall.
