I am trying to restore a database from a . bak file

When i do so i get a message telling me that the previous database was backed up on a server using 10.50 and that this version(mine) is running 10.00.44

I don't mind upgrading but i need to know what i need to upgrade to. If somebody could tell me what I need and provide a link for upgrade i would appreciate it.

10.50 is SQL Server 2008 R2
10.00 is SQL Server 2008 (Not R2).

when you import, are you importing into an existing database or creating a new database?
It sounds as if you are attempting to upgrade an existing database.
Can you import the database into a new (temporary) database?

i have to believe then that the database engine is NOT at 10.50.
It sounds like the sql management interface is at that level, but not the instance itself.
somehow you need to get the INSTANCE upgraded to the correct version... I am not sure how to do that...
