CAD 8.5 upgrade failure

Dear Networker,

We have UCCE 8.0 installed. We have CAD 7.2 services installed (on both servers collocated with PGs). We are planning to upgrade CAD to 8.5

We followed the CAD 8.5 install Guide.We:

1- Installed SQL 2005 on the primary server with a new SQL Instance "CADDB"

2- Configured SQL params as described in the Install Guide

3- Installed CAD 8.5 Over the TOP, but while accessing the initial setup configurfation we face an visual studio error and we can't access that menu !

Can you please advise ?

Please find attached the error image.


CAD 8.5 upgrade failure

Please check this one,

Which says,


   a.. Right click My PC / Properties.

   b.. Click Advanced Tab

   c.. Under Performance, click Settings

   d.. Click Data Excecution Prevention tab

   e.. Select Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only

   f.. Restart Windows

This option is selected by default, but with installation of SQL 2005 or

Visual Studio it changes and start to cause a series of trouble without any

information to the user.

Hope this help you.



System Properties” => “Advanced” => “Performance” “Settings”,

the DEP setting  is set to "Turn on DEP for all programs  and services except those I select :"
