Consultant and DSD partner David Selko of Baltimore just checked in to report an odd issue he encountered while upgrading Sage ERP MAS 90 from version 4.30 to 4.50 today:
I am out to upgrade a client to 4.5. Get all the conversion work done, get the forms done, log a couple people in, then a user comes to me and says she can’t get in.
object PvxDax.PvxDictionary could not be initialized.
I uninstall the client, repair the client, run the regcom.bat file, register the pvxdax.dll file. No luck. Had this on two workstations. I call support and they say, your computers are messed up,
The work was all done, all the clients for 4.3 were removed and 4.5 installed. I start running around to put them back to 4.3 and support called back and says that it is possible that you don’t have Visual C++ 2008 installed.
The MAS90 workstation setups installed fine without it and never mentioned anything about needing it.
These machines were both missing dotnet. Anyway, installing the visual C++ fixed the issue. I ALMOST had to abandon the upgrade because of the missing files.
So if you see a workstation setup warn you about dotnet, this may be your issue.
And here is the file I needed to install:
