Installing Upgrade Advisor

SQL Server 2014

Where you install SQL Server 2014 Upgrade Advisor depends on what you will be analyzing. Upgrade Advisor supports remote analysis of all SQL Server components except Reporting Services. If you are not scanning instances of Reporting Services, you can install Upgrade Advisor on any computer that can connect to SQL Server, and that meets the Upgrade Advisor prerequisites. If you are scanning instances of Reporting Services, you must install Upgrade Advisor on the report server.

For more information, see Upgrade Advisor Prerequisites.

Upgrade Advisor is available for installation in two ways:

  • From the redist folder of the SQL Server product media.

    Run the SQLUA.msi file to install Upgrade Advisor.

  • As a download from the SQL Server 2014 feature pack.

    Upgrade Advisor is available as a self-extracting executable file from the Web site. If you select Open, you will be prompted to specify the location to extract the files. If you select Save, a Save As dialog box opens.

You can uninstall Upgrade Advisor by using Add or Remove Programs.
