Database Version Number Is Not The Same


When starting Cubit after updating, If you encounter the error message saying Database version number is not the same as the application (X.000.00X.00), it usually means that something went wrong when running the installers and the database is not yet upgraded.

To manually update the database using the Cubit Management Console:

Setup connection to Database and Upgrade:

1. Start Cubit Management Console, from C:\Program Files\Buildsoft\Cubit\CUBIT Management.exe for 64-bit Microsoft Operating System or C:\Program Files (x86)\Buildsoft\Cubit\CUBIT Management.exe for 32-bit Microsoft Operating System.
