upgrade from sql server express 2005 to sql server 2005 - language issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an english windows 2003 server with a DUTCH sharepoint 2007 and a dutch sql server express 2005. At first we thought that sql express would be enough. Now we would like to go to sql 2005 because we bounce against the 4 gb limit of sql server express 2005.

    Apparently there is no dutch version of sql server 2005. 

    When trying to upgrade (setup.exe SKUUPGRADE=1) SQL Server Express 2005 (dutch) to the developer version (English) I get the error "your upgrade is blocked because of cross-language compatibility".

    What would be the easiest way to upgrade? Is it possible to overcome the language issue ?
    Do we need to change settings in sharepoint ?

    thx in advance !
