Hi Guys,


Trying to upgrade SEC to 5.5.1 I have this error :

    Hello all,

    as we've heard 5.5.2 is available. Even though it no longer supports SQL Server 2008 (all flavours) and requires at least Native Client 11 and the Copyright in CreateDatabaseWithCollation.sql has been updated it still says
    SELECT TOP 1 @lastDBName = name
    FROM sysdatabases

    Thanks for the info of SEC 5.5.2.

    In a couple weeks I will build 2012 or 2019 Server to migrate SEC 5.5.1 by following this procedure :


    I hope will have no problems.
