Our sister company just upgraded their server to a Win Server 2008 for a Classic Installation.  They like to live dangerously - They are running PSQL 2000i - so far, no problems.  I guess I shouldn't tell them to try EVO just yet.

That's funny. PSQL2000i is not even supported on 2003, never mind 2008. We hope to upgrade to 10 within the next couple of quarters, and we will upgrade the server to 2003 at the same time. Is this a good plan? Sounds like there are pitfalls in several areas. Is Evo/PSQL10/Win2003 a happy combo? Maybe we'll just stay with 2000  Smiley

Actually, you are right.
Classic runs, but not Evo. Also the lates EVO update will crash.

I'm not sure, but I think some people here have already combined PSQL10 with Win2003 without major issues.  I was thinking of pushing for our server upgrade in the next couple of months (which would probably be Win2008) but now I might want to hold back until the question of EVO/Win2008 is resolved.

Kelloggs -
 
Did you try the Right Click and Run As Administrator trick?  You have to do that with Vista to get Evo to run the first time; I suspect WIN 2008 server has many of the same peculiarities relating to the registry and security and such.

Yes,
I tried all the settings on the "Compatibility" Tab
 
What is puzzling is that it runs on Vista as you said.

I ran it on 2008 standard RC3 and it worked with Pervasive 10 and the current build of Evo at the time.  There were some issues with Pervasive and rights management that I had to work around but I don't remember what they were.  I'm reinstalling the release of 2008 std and will test.
 
Questions:
 
1: What flavor are you running?  std, Small Business or Enterprize?
2: are you trying to run EVO on the server directly or from a work station?
3: where is the default directory?  C:\DBAMFG or a mapped drive?
4: What else did you install?  Active Directory, Firewall, IIS, shadowing...?
5: have you changed any of the IE settings?  Maped drives must be in a trusted zone or 2008 will not allow running of apps.
 
Let me know,
 
Tim

2: are you trying to run EVO on the server directly or from a work station? Both Terminal Server and Console (Server)
3: where is the default directory?  C:\DBAMFG or a mapped drive? Mapped Drive F:\DBAMFG
4: What else did you install?  Active Directory, Firewall, IIS, shadowing...? None, Firewall is installed by default
5: have you changed any of the IE settings?  Maped drives must be in a trusted zone or 2008 will not allow running of apps. Didnt change anything. No idea about trusted zones
 
Thanks for your help

I'm still downloading the release version.  As soon as I get it installed I'll test and let you know.  You are probably getting the IE dialog box asking you if you want to run EVOERP.exe every time you run it.  you fix this in IE, tools, internet options, security and adding the sahre for F: as a trusted site.  something like \\my-server\apps.  otherwise 2008 (and Vista) think you are running the application from the internet and can block it from running or from the different modules from running.
 
You also need to make sure the pervasive service is allowed through the firewall.  If if you are on the same server, pervasive runs through IP address 127.0.0.1 and the firewall rules are enforced.
 
I'll let you know ASAP (Probably tomorrow morning).

OK your right!  Microsoft changed something.  I'm getting the same error.  
 
The most I can find right now is that Evo is casuing a crash in the Memory manager and is not the only application having the problem.  there are a bunch of apps having the same problem (enter appcrash in windows 2008) and or course Microsoft is being tight lipped about the problem.
 
Everything works fine from a Windows XP or Windows Vista workstation.  the problem is EVOERP.EXE running on the server.  
 
Will be back when I have more info.

Got it!
 
Server 2008 has a new DEP protocol (Data Execution Prevention)  Not sure if it's the fact that EVOERP.EXE is actaully tp7runtime.exe or the fact that it is ran twice at startup.  ether way this is what's causing the problem.
 
To fix do the following in control panel,  go into system.  on the left click "Advanced System Settings"
 
Under the Advanced tab,  Choose settings under performance.  in the new window,  go to the "Data Execution Prevention" tab.  click add and browse and choose Evoerp.exe.  (need to add the one in DBAMFG first!)
 
Click OK to return to system properties.  then open explorer and launch EVOERP.EXE to start the client install.  After the clint is installed,  do the same thing for EVOERP.EXE in the C:\ISTS directory.
 
If you are running terminal services,  you need to do this for each user's copy of EVOERP.EXE.
 
DEP not only looks at the file to ignore but also the path to that file.
 
Hope it helps,
 
Tim
 
P.S.  there are some major patches for Windows 2008 you want to get them installed ASAP.

It turns out this step to add evoerp.exe to the list of allowed programs under the DEP protocol in Windows 2008 Server is apparently critical for installing updates.
I had big problems with the install of the payroll update because when I got to the convert existing dictionary and the program tried to open, it would open and then shut down immediately.
When I added evoerp.exe to the DEP list, and ran the install again, the convert existing dictionary program could be run, but by that time Lynn had done her magic to get the necessary files to me and I didn't need to run this.  For future updates I think this is very important.

I have [u]Windows Server 2008 64 bit running with pervasive 9.5 Also running vista business 64 bit.
Evo is running, but I had to click run as administrator.  I will be testing pervasive 10.
 
There was some issues with permissions in 2008 server 64 bit.  It turned out to be a Windows firewall issue, I turned it off for testing and Classic and Evo installed and worked.
 
I will have to see how to do it in Windows 2008 64bit server with Firewall on.  It is a new technology firewall so I will see what I find out.

I just found what you need to do on Windows server 2008.  It is the Firewall.  All you have to do is go into firewall (found in Control Panel).  Go to  "Change Settings,"   Click on Exceptions at the top of the dialog box, click  "Add port" at the bottom.  Give it a name  "Pervasive Port 1"  go to Port number, and place  3351.  Make sure TCP is marked, say OK.  Repeate add port,  "pervasive port 2"  put in port number  1583.  And Firewall will no longer block your connections.  I repeated the process.
 
You can Check whether Windows 2008 is listening to these ports by going to "run"  type in "cmd"
type "netstat -a"  and it will list all the ports it is listening to.  With out giving ports  3351 and 1583 exceptions they will not be listed.   After words they are listed as  "listening."  You will have to scroll back up in the prompt window to see the TCP ports.

We had to completely drop DEP to get to install. Also it has to be run as admin too.

Maybe I should try that too.  I am having a heck of a time getting Evo updates installed.  I have done everything suggested so far, and my firewall is turned off.  I have two evo exceptions listed in the DEP exceptions, but maybe I should turn this off also.
