    Hi Naresh,

    Basically MAXDB Database studio 7.8 requires JRE 1.6. You can do the following

    Uninstall the Database Studio version.

    1. To uninstall, call the installation manager 7.8 ("Programs -> SAP MaxDB -> Installation Manager").

    2. Choose "Remove MaxDB Installation".

    3. Under "Legacy", select the Database Studio version.

    Selecting "Legacy" ensures that you do not select the Database Studio 7.8 that you have just installed for uninstallation.

    4. Choose "Forward" to confirm that you want the system to remove the installation.

    Due to the operation of the earlier Database Studio version, some processes may still run (for example, serv.exe). Stop these processes and continue with the 7.8 installation.

    And then install JRE 1.6. Then delete the files in location c:\Users\<User>\sdb\DatabaseStudio (delete files .configuration, .metadata, p2) and then re-install MaxDB database studio.
