Move SSAS Databases 2008 R2 to 2012

Hello,

I am moving SQL Server Analysis Services databases from SQL Server 2008 R2 64-Bit Standard Edtion to SQL Server 2012 64-Bit Standard Edition. The databases are moving from one physical server to another physical server. Here's the problem.

I backed up an SSAS database on 2008 R2 server, password protected. I copied the backup file (ABF) to the 2012 server. On the 2012 server I open the SSAS instance, right-click the Databases folder and choose Restore... from the menu. I select the ABF 'Backup file', enter the 'Restore database' name and enter the password I used. 'Allow database overwrite' is unchecked, 'Include security information' is set to Copy All.

When I click OK, I receive a message:

"Errors related to feature availability and configuration: The 'Support of ReadOnly databases' feature is not included in the '64 Bit Standard' edition of Analysis Services. (Microsft.AnalysisServices)"

What can I do to overcome this error?

Thank You

We did ours by importing our 2008 SSAS project from BIDS 2008 to BIDS 2012, then deploying them to SQL SSAS 2012.

So, basically doing the whole process end to end in 2012.
