Good afternoon,

Upon finding that our SSAS 2008 instance was in fact an evaluation copy, and since that evaluation copy came to an end last night, we installed a Standard Edition over the top.

We have however, found ourselves in the unfortunate position of not being able to open our Cube Solutions due to "Perspectives" not being supported in Standard Edition.

So, what steps can we take to properly downgrade to Standard edition from Enterprise Edition (Evaluation), or remove perspectives from the Cubes (that we cant view in BIDS or SSMS)

Thanks in advance
