    Question Unanswered: SQL Versions

    I've got a few SQL Servers at work which are development servers using SQL Server Standard Edition. I would like to downgrade them to SQL Server Developer Edition to save the Standard Edition licenses for production purposes. However, i do not wish to uninstall and reinstall SQL Server Developer Edition, restore all the dbs. Is there a way to change the version of the SQL Server ?

    You will have to reinstall. However, you don;t have to recover the dbs, use Attach and Detach DBS

    That would be a no-no....

    Why not use MSDE?

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.
