Upgrade SQL 2005 Eval to SQL 2005 Standard

I installed SQL 2005 Eval and SQL SP2 roughly 4 months ago to test a new application. My Client liked it and i purchased SQL 2005 Standard through Microsot Volume Licensing. i downloaded the software today (they provide a separate link for SQL SP2, which leads me to believe that the SQL install is not SP2 slipstreamed). when i tried to run the setup to make the SQL install proper i got a warning message prompting me to run the setup in command line.

Can anyone please show me what the syntax would be? what procedures need to be followed? do i need to get all users off the sql server before attempting this? does it matter that the SQL install from microsoft EOpen doesnt seem to be SP2 slipstreamed?

Thanks,

Easy cheesy, 5 point program:
1. Detach all the user databases in Evaluation edition
2. Script all the logins and jobs refer this for more info, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918992 and http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191450.aspx
3. Install Std edition 
4. Attach the databases
5. Execute the scripts from step2 to recreate logins and jobs (not required if everything works as planned)


Let me know if this helps. :)

Just do a normal installation of the Standard edition. It will upgrade your existing installation.
