Hello,

I am working an outdated application using an Oracle Database. It is version 8.17.0.0.

I don't know Oracle.

I know SQL Server well and have already loaded SQL Server 2005 Express and I have SQL 2000 Enterprise.

My plan to get the data from Oracle to SQL Server is this:

1) Export from Oracle 8.1.7.0.0
2) Import into Oracle Express 10g
3) Download SQL Server to Oracle migration wizard
4) Import Oracle data into SQL Server 2005.

Fine.

But as I was reading the documentation, the migration wizard doesn't work with SQL Server 2005 Express. So I need to ugprade the 2005 Express to the 2005 Developer edition.

How do I upgrade the 2005 Express edition to the 2005 Developer edition?

I am working on an single CPU machine with Windows XP.

Thanks.

What is on your SQL Server Express edition that you need to save, it sounds like you have just the Server loaded with no real data (maybe AdventureWorks??), at least until you get your Oracle data over to SQL?

If that is the case then Download:

And pull out your wallet.

I think you can run the 2 in parallel. Express is a named instance (MyServer\SQLEXPRESS) and you can set the Developer version as Default or as named instance. You shouldn't have any problems after that.

This being said, I think you actually want to get rid of Express. Just use the Uninstall routine for the SQL Server service from Add/Remove Programs. It will subsequently uninstall most of the things that came with it. Then you can install the Developer version
