SQL BPA Command Line Has Encountered A Problem And Needs To Close

I was upgrading an application this morning.  Part of the process was to upgrade SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 (the application is developed by a company that tends to not be adventurous about version platform support).  After I’d gone through the setup wizard, it went to do a last check and came up with this error:


When you’re dealing with something like a SQL upgrade and see something like this … well … you start looking for the phone and dialling 999 (911 for those of you across the pond). 

A very quick search later and I had the solution.  A simple folder creation and a file copy sorts things out.

  1. Thanks for putting my solution on your site. I started the VillageCoder blog hoping to help myself remember problems I have run across and also to help others with their issues. You are the first person to have put a link to my site from theirs.
