SQLServer 2008 Express Upgrade to Standard

    We have a vendor installed system that installed SQLServer 2008 Express with a named instance. An upgrade has been performed using SQLServer 2008 Standard Edition against the named instance, but, the named instance still reports as SQLServer Express.
    The SQLServer and SQLServer Agent services both reference executable images in the vendor directory path.
    How can I get the services to start as Standard versions?

    Welcome to the forums.
    Run the following code against that named instance and post here:
    SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')
