I am trying to upgrade one of our databases to from Texis version 6 32bit to version 7 64bit.
I've created a new database on the new server and when I try to use "addtable" to add the table file from the old server to new one (with -b 32 flag), I get the "ABEND: exception 0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION)" error message and only a temp tbl file gets added to the database.
Any ideas on how to get around this error message? Many thanks.
Normally addtable should work; we'll have to investigate what is causing the ABEND.
In the meantime you'll have to use cpdb. You can run it on a different port than its default if another one is open through the firewall.
Or if you can copy the texis 6 (32-bit) cpdb, addtable and creatdb to the new server (that already has texis 7 and the old table), you can create a temp texis 6 db, texis-6 addtable the table there, then run texis-6 cpdb as a local server on that db, and finally copy the table locally from that db with a texis-7 cpdb client to the 64-bit db.
