  • SQL 2012 Upgrade Advisor Reporting Error

    HI Everyone,

    I'm performing an upgrade from SQL Server Express 2008 R2 SP2 to SQL Server 2012 standard. I'm doing this all in a test environment before I do it live. Here's my issue:

    I was successful upgrading from SQL Express 2008 R2 SP1 to SP2

    I then tried to install the SQL 2012 Upgrade advisor but it told me to install scriptdom during the installation.

    I did that and then the upgrade advisor for SQL 2012 did install successfully.

    I then ran the Upgrade advisor and after it finished it gave me an an error in the Upgrade Advisor report. Here's the error:

    The best practice group returned null result


    I can't seem to find anything about this on the Internet at this time.

    Here's my environment and all the software are downloaded trial versions

    Windows 7 Enterprise

    SQl Express 2008 R2

    SQl 2008 R2 SP2

    Sql 2012 standard

    Any help would be appreciated.
