Upgrading to SAP Business One 2007


Sorry, but after being reinsured that my installation of SQl Server 2005 went fine I now run into the next issues with the actual B1 upgrade.

We currently run 2005 A. I received the package from our VAR and now wanted to follow the instructions to upgrade.

1. re to the instructions I was supposed to run the program upgrade.exe; there is no such program in the whole package

2. I tried to run autorun.exe which starts but looks more like the initial install program

3.autorun.exe gives me the following message after it started: 'an outdated verion of MSSQL was detected'; as mentioned I installed SQL Server 2005

4. when I ignore this and just proceed with INSTALL, SERVER, SKIP I get to a screen that asks for the name of the server instance and the loin credentials; I am not able to logon to the server (in the Server Management Studo everything looks fine)

Maybe there is something wrong right from the beginning. Any hint is appreciated.

Thanks Olaf
