I am using SQL Server 2012 Express edition. Client sent me the SQL Server backup file with the extension
.sps.bak. I am not able to open it with SSMS. Please somebody help me here.
I get the following error message.
Restore of database failed.
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: the database was backed up on a server running version 10.50.1600. That version is incompatible with this server, which is running 10.00.1600. Either restore the database on a server that supports the backup or use a backup that is compatible with this server.
I cannot open the database that was developed with a professional edition on an Express edition?
