Gradience Pro / Enterprise - Errors opening Gradience after upgrading from Optima

Resolving errors encountered after upgrading to Gradience

When upgrading from Optima/MyBiz 7 or 8 to Gradience and then upon launching Gradience, the following may occur:

  •  The program hangs before being able to enter login and password. 
  •  After entering Login/Password the following error appears:  SQL error in table Checklist and P.Firstname

This is due to the program failing to go through the update process fully.         

Workaround: Run a database maintenance.

--NOTE--  The steps below can only be run while physically at the computer where the database resides. You may encounter difficulty trying to run this through a remote tool like RDP.

1. Your operating system determines where to go:

On Windows 7, on Server 2008 and 2008 R2 click...
Start > All Programs > Gradience > MaintenanceDatabase Maintenance.

On Windows 8, Windows 10, and Server 2012, click...
Start > All Apps > Gradience > Database Maintenance.

2. Click the Start button that appears at the lower left corner of the popup. This cannot be done remotely through RDP. You have to either be [physically] at the computer where the database resides or you need to remote into the console.

3. Close the maintenance utility when it is finished and try to open gradience again.
