I am trying to upgrade a SQL Server 2000 SP4 standared edition running on 64bit Windows 2003 to SQL 2005. Since I am trying to upgrade, I am updating the Default instance. After selecting default instance, the wizard takes you to what components to upgrade; but the Database services is locked so it cannot be checke for upgrade. Details show the following message: Your upgrade is blocked because of edition upgrade rules. For more information about edition upgrades, see the Version and Edition Upgrades topic in SQL Server 2005 Setup Help or SQL Server 2005 Books Online. Any ideas on what can be done to prevent this problem?
