This question is same as , if you have VB6 installed on your machine and you want to rebuild/upgrade as Visual Studio.NET Installation :), It will not work. Its starting API/Lib files are very different, that's why it not allow us to do it. Yes you can google, if any crack available.

Nope...not possible. You need to uninstall enterprise and then need to install standard edition. Please find the steps for the same:

A transparent upgrade on the same version is possible however the opposite is more tedious.

Hope this helps...
