    Welcome to the forum.

    Do you have any other SQL instances install on this machine?
    I did an uninstall of Eval edition on my laptop recently... successfully.

    You have to use the SQL setup in order to perform Edition upgrade, such as upgrade to Developer edition as you cannot downgrade the edition.
