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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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...
