Patch Upgrade from to - Fatal Error Undefined Subroutine

Hi everyone,

While executing our patch upgrade from to on the "Database Kernel" phase we are getting the following "Fatal Error" message:

Undefined subroutine &SAPDB::Install::Wizard::Dialog::Install::killUsedFiles called at SAPDB/Install/Wizard/Dialog/ line 103.

Our system is W2K3 64bit R2 SP2 ... everything 64bit.

I have stopped all the relevant MaxDB services including the SAP DB WWW ..etc...

Any help is appreciated.

    How did you upgrade? Did you use SDBUPD?

      I'm pretty sure SDBSETUP does exactly that but with a nice gui at the front. SDBSETUP did successfully stop the DB, and all the necessary services including the x_server ..etc..

      Might give SDBUPD a go next time to see if that makes a difference.

      Yep, had it on the server running when I was problem solving but I couldn't find anything obvious.

      I'm hoping someone from SAP might be able to tell me what line 103 in the is doing??
