We are running Automate Professional and just had an internal audit.  This software is still running on SQL Server 2008r2 which is past support.  We need to upgrade to a newer version of SQL Server to satisfy a finding.

The staff that originally installed Automate is no longer here but based on the cost of SQL Server licensing I don't think they would have bought that separately so I assume Automate shipped with the currently supported version at that time.  Where do I find the download files and instructions for doing an in-place upgrade of Automate to a supported version of SQL Server?  I don't need to move it to a new machine, just have a supported database behind it.

Hello Frank,

Unfortunately, the only version of SQL that AutoMate comes packaged with is SQL Express 2008.

You are more than welcome to setup a newer version of SQL, then use our data migration tool to migrate the database over from the unsupported version to the new version.

Here is more information on the Data Migration Utility for your reference:
