MAP Installation Failure - SQL Exception Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Upgrading from MAP v8 to v9.  After answering "Upgrade database?" question with Yes, receive the followingn error:

    "A failure occurred while upgrading the database.  Refer to the log file for more details.  RunListOfQueries:  A SQL exception has occurred running:  "** See the log file for the specific query. **"

    For starters, cannot find the log file that it refers to for further diagnosis.  Any ideas where that's located?

  • I would like to know the answer to this as well.

    I have SQL Express 2012 installed and receive the same error.
    The OS is windows 7 64 bit and the SQL is 64 Bit as well.

    A search for any log file failed.

     Where is the log file?

  • CountryStyle, I did more search and found the log file at Program Files/Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit directory.    Found error discription inside log but didn't help.   I completely removed V8 program including database (option on uninstall) and database backups and installed v9, which was successful.  Note that it wouldn't work after uninstall until I removed db backup.  Each time it would start up and want to Convert db.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi MPHilmar,

    Having SQL 2012 may have been the cause of this for me.  Glad to see you fixed yours too.

    -I resolved the error by uninstalling

    -Creating a instance named MAPS (so MAPS would use it instead of installing a localDB like it USED TO)

    -upon reinstall everything worked great.

  • I did not find anything that was NEW and called *log*

    will look again if I have issues.

  • You will need to follow this upgrade path 8.0 -> 8.5 -> 9.0. Unfortunately, only the currently available release is available on the Download Center, so you will need to already have a copy of 8.5 saved somewhere.

  • selecting No prompted me to the database create screen allowing me to start a v9 rather than use my old version 8 one.  Re ran my audits and all was right in the world again.
