Updating the database from SQL Server 2008 to 2012

I have been using SQL Server 2008 With Visual Studio 2008. Now I am using SQL Server 2012 With Visual Studio 2012. For now, I just want to get the database updated so I can restore it in SQL Server 2012. Is there a query that will handle this task? I tried using the restore query that I always use:
Database name:  --          jandmmfg

Restore database jandmmfg from disk
= ‘F:\Backups\SQL\jandmmfg.BAK’
With recovery, replace

...

This gave me an error…

...

I have seen this error when restoring to a new database and the destination directory doesn't exist.  SQL Server won't create directories for you.

Does the directory "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA" exist ?

sjwales,

That directory exists in SQL Server 2008, but not in 2012.

SQL Server 2008 was Developer edition. I am using SQL Server 2012 Express edition while I wait for the delivery of SQL Server 2012 Developer edition if that makes a difference.

Something like this (change the logical names and enter the full path to the data files including their physical names as appropriate):
RESTORE DATABASE jandmmfg
   FROM DISK= 'F:\Backups\SQL\jandmmfg.BAK'
   WITH NORECOVERY, 
      MOVE 'jandmmfg_Data' TO '<full path of your data file goes here>', 
      MOVE 'jandmmfg_Log' TO '<full path of your transaction log file goes here>'

acperkins,

I received this error after the MOVE statement.


Msg 3234, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Logical file 'jandmmfg_Data' is not part of database 'jandmmfg'. Use RESTORE FILELISTONLY to list the logical file names.

Thank you all for your help.  I am going do an upgrade in place from SQL Server 2008 to 2012. I think that in the ticket. Happy New Year everybody.

Logical file 'jandmmfg_Data' is not part of database 'jandmmfg'.
That is why I specifically stated change the logical names and enter the full path to the data files including their physical names as appropriate.  I have no idea what names you used.  And yes using RESTORE FILELISTONLY will answer that question for you.
