Visual Studio 2010 – Upgrade from RTM to SP1

Background

Just as yourself, got a lot to do, but occasionally get pulled back in.

 

SQL Server 2008-R2 Upgrade

My manager has signed us up to upgrade all SQL Servers to the most recent version, 2016. Or at minimum the version that precedes the latest; btw, that is 2014.

The SQL Instance that I am looking at currently is v2008-R2 and the OS is 2008/R2.

That latest SQL Server supported on Windows 2008-R2 is SQL Server 2014.

 

Upgrade 2008-R2 to 2014

Trying to upgrade v2008-R2 to v2014, but ran into a constraint right away.
