Just need to upgrade the version from Developer to Standard. Is it as simple as just entering in an Enterprise Key or do I need to re-install the SQL Instance ?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
You will need to run the install to perform an upgrade, it's pretty simple however.
Edit since I apparently can't read and thought you were using express, there will be almost 0 feature changes made yet I'm pretty sure you still have to re-run the setup program to get the key in and allow it to make the necessary modifications.

you can upgrade by just using a simple tool "Randolph" easy to use and it takes full responsibility for upgrade.It shifts the responsibility for versioning from the users to the software. Its light-weight, easy to use tool that runs in the background and keeps track of all your databases schema and data changes over time, and enables full review of databases' history, and full rollback to any point in time, as well as optionally push changes into existing systems.
