There's a special version of the setup that installs SQL2012, however, if you upgrade a site that used to have SQL2005 it will continue using SQL2005.

This is controlled by a settings file named ConnectionStrings.config. In there you can change which SQL instance it connects to. You'll also have to migrate the database, please see the below for that.

A perhaps easier solution is to uninstall LAS, delete the ConnectionStrings.config and install the SQL 2012 version from scratch and then simply uninstall SQL2005. You'll loose all data of course...


Migration of Database from SQL2005 to SQL2012Manual migrationCurrently manual migration is the only available option.Migration consists of 3 main steps:Create backup at the old serverMove the backup file to a location that is accessible to the new serverRestore the backup at the new serverTo create the backup, connect to the old server and issue following command:


It will create backup in the default backup directory. You can quickly check path to the directory with this:

EXEC master.dbo.xp_instance_regread N'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE',N'Software\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\MSSQLServer', N'BackupDirectory'

The backup file needs to be moved to a place where it can be accessed by the new server. Recommended location is the default backup directoryof the new server. Obtain its path with the same SQL query that you used at the old server (make sure that you execute the query against rightserver). Copy or move the file to the new path and make sure that it is readable by the account that the SQL2012 runs as.Before you can restore the file, you need to obtain path to the data directory of the new SQL Server (it is the default directory in which the SQLServer stores its databases.) First, get the root directory with:

EXEC master.dbo.xp_instance_regread N'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE',N'Software\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\Setup', N'SQLDataRoot'

Data directory is named "Data" and is stored directly in the root directory.Now you have everything you need to restore the database. Below you have SQL statement that performs the restore. Before you execute it,replace ${DataDirectory} placeholder with real path.


MOVE N'BXOLAS' TO N'${DataDirectory}\BXOLAS.mdf',  

MOVE N'BXOLAS_log' TO N'${DataDirectory}\BXOLAS_log.ldf'

Finally, unlock SQL 2012 features with:


The new database is ready to use. Remember to ensure that LAS Server has correct connection string. You can also take the old database offline to ensure that no application will connect to it by mistake.

We Respect Your Privacy

LASConnect and its affiliates are committed to supporting 'Privacy Principles' and to the protection of your personal information. Our privacy policy sets a standard for the collection, access, storage and subsequent use of personal information which has been obtained as part of our business operations.

We respect the right of our customers, dealers, distributors and employees to have their personal information kept private. We have policies and procedures to ensure that all personal information is handled sensitively and in a secure manner.

This Privacy Policy sets out:

  • issues regarding information we may collect about you
  • our policies on the management of personal information, and
  • generally, what sort of information we hold, for what purposes, and how we collect, hold, use and disclose that information

What personal information do we collect and store?

So that we can provide goods and services to you, we may ask for personal details such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. Some examples of where we may need these details are for the delivery of goods. Privacy law requires us to collect personal information about you only if it is reasonable and practical to do so.

LASConnect implements procedures to ensure your personal information is protected from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration. We also take measures to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information when it is no longer required. The types of measures we take vary with the type of information, and how it is collected and stored.

Generally, you have no obligation to provide any information requested by us. However, if you choose to withhold requested information, we may be unable to provide you with the goods and services that depend on the collection of that information.

How is personal information used?

The personal information that we ask for is generally used to provide goods or our services to you. For example, for a credit card transaction we need your card number and for delivery we need your address details.

We may also use your personal information in other ways, for example to send you notice of new services or products. You have the right to tell us that you do not want us to send information to you other than for the main purpose for which we have collected your personal details, however this may restrict your ability to access or become aware of these new services.

We will not disclose your personal information for financial gain to any other commercial organisation other than affiliates of LASConnect. If you wish to 'Opt-Out' of receiving e-mail communication from us, please tell us by phone or by sending an e-mail to the appropriate address shown in the contact page on this website.

Access to your personal information?

We will provide you with access to any of your personal information we hold (except in the limited circumstances recognised by privacy law). If you require access to your personal information, please e-mail our Privacy helpline at the address shown in the contact page on this website. Of course, before we provide you with access to your personal information we will require some proof of identity which may include a date of birth, etc. We may charge a reasonable fee if your request requires a substantial effort on our part. If you need to update your information (e.g. if you change your address), please contact us by email at our general information email address in the contact page on this website, or by telephone so we can make the amendment.
