Wrong Database Version

Postby EZRider » Wed Mar 12, 2008 7:51 pm

1. Downloaded Evaluation Version
2. Clicked create new application
3. Named the application and clicked OK.
4. Gave application a name and password and clicked OK.
5. Rather than opening up into the application, the system opens up with a Browse Folder popup and asks me to OPEN APPLICATION.
6. If I open the application named in step 4 above, the system errors with the following statement:

Unable to open application - Wrong database version.

Any thoughts on correcting this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Something's wrong since it should open the application as soon as you give a name and password. What version is that eval copy?

I'm heading out in a couple minutes, but if you give me a call at the office tomorrow we can have a look.

Here is the resolution on this. The gentleman was trying to create a database in the root directory of C: which was failing for any number of reasons related to what Windows will and will not permit. Most recommendations are to never put anything in the root of c: other than those files that Windows puts there.

You should always create a directory to hold the database. This directory can be on a server, or on a local drive and can be a subdirectory of the Ffenics directory or in a place of its own. If you are going to create more than one database, it's a good idea to create a new directory for each database. After long years of habit, I have a local directory named FfApps that contain one directory for each database.
