    Update SQL server version!

    I have 2 computers, a laptop and a desktop, the laptop has SQL 2012 and the Desktop has SQL 2014 with the latest update. I have a program which requires that the SQL versions match, but could not get the laptop to accept the SQL 2014 version. It failed with the message to contact MS. I got MS tech support and because they classify SQL Server updates as a business classification, they wanted $499 to for their support...!

    The latest update for SQL 2014 was available for my desktop and I have installed it successfully. I still have the download file on my desktop and wanted to know if it would install on the laptop? Both systems run Windows 10 Professional, 64 Bit version.

    Anyone know if this will work?

    The failure message is what you want to research, and not through Microsoft. Post it here and we'll see if we can help.
