E1: INST: Fat Client Installation Fails After Upgrading Local Database from MSDE to SSE (Doc ID 1119913.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2017

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 8.98 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have converted our local database from MSDE to SSE.  We built a new full package with the SSE local database. However, when we deploy this package to install the EnterpriseOne client on a workstation, the install fails. 

A couple of different errors can occur.  Either the process is stopping while attempting to install MSDE or the following on-screen error appears:

Database instance (local)\\JDESSELocal could not be found. Please run Setup again.

 There is no error information about this in the jdeinst.log file.


The local database was converted from MSDE to SSE.
