Can I migrate in place from SQL Server 2008 per proc to 2014 server/CAL?

We currently have a per processor license for SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard. We are required to upgrade to 2014 Standard. We'd like to move to server + CAL licensing for 2014. Does anyone know if this is a problem? Can I just install 2014 as an in-place upgrade, regardless of the licensing change?

I don't see why you can't. Did you checked with Microsoft?
