 installing full version of SQL server 6.5 over the trial version

our trial version sql server 6.5 is about to expire. We tried installing the
full version over the trial version, but it does'nt work. Our database is
way too expansive by now to back up. Is there a way that we could just input
the serial # of the full version? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Fred Marsh

Fred,

 If installing over the top doesn't fix it then delete all the registry
keys for MSSQLSERVER in currentcontrolset and software and then do a
SETUP /t "RegistryRebuild = on" with the full version and answer the
setup questions.  This will leave the databases intact.
