SAP DB kernel.exe windows error..database doesnt start...PLZZ REPLY

Hello all

I m facing this irritating problem here..few days back my MINIWAS 6.2 was perfectly running. when i logged in it showed me the license is expired then i extended it and it worked well.. now after 1 week now when i try to start the MIINWAS gives me windows error saying 'SAP DB kernel.exe this program has performed illegal operation' and it doesnt start at all .I can't use SAP DB MANAGER Utility to back my database as first it need to connect to existing database, and when it try to do that , same error comes up. i dun understand wat is the problem here .If anyone here faced similar problem or knows abt this kind of errors please reply me..i m really waiting to get back to work on MINIWAS .Any pointers on the issue will be highly appreciated ..

Thanks in advance


NOTE : when i start the DATABSE ..the XSERVER service is started and the green LED for harddrive shows activity also which means it starts loading the database but then that activity stops and windows error is shown

    Hi Nilesh,

    maybe some more information can be retrieved regarding the error in the logs of the Windows Event Viewer?

    Additionally, there should be more information about the error in the knldiag and knldiag.err file of your MaxDB instance. Please have a look at those (they're found in the Rundirectory of your instance, issue 'xinstinfo <DB-SID>' to find out your Rundirectory's path) and show us relevant info from them.

    Please also state which exact MaxDB version you are using (incl. Buildnr.).
