So I've been beating my head against this all day and I'm beginning to suspect the worst.

Does anyone know if it is possible to perform an in-place upgrade to take SQL Server Express 2008 and upgrade it to SQL Server 2008 Enterprise?

I keep ending up with the setup yelling at me about the FeatureUpgradeMatrixCheck failing, but was hoping to find some workaround or a setting I'd overlooked.

If all else fails I suppose I could just back up my databases and move them to a separate instance of the Enterprise version and go back to reconfigure all my applications to point to the new database but I really want to thoroughly exhaust the possibility of making an in-place upgrade work before doing that.
