    Hello Shahid,

    Error -80 means that the database server was not able to start. There are many reasons why this happened, so what you must do is look at the database server log to see a more detailed message.

    If you take a look at the file "", you'll see the startup parameters used the launch the SQLA database server executable (dbsrv12). The option to log messages to an external file is "-o <filename>" so look for that. You can then open that file and see why the database server is failing.

    Feel free to post the error and we'll let you know what it means and how to avoid it.
