Hi Ari and team,
5+ years happy onCourse (freeloading community) customers here and rarely an issue. We love your program!
We have just installed version 9.0 after returning from the Christmas break but cannot get the server working. When we open the server program, select our database file, the server opens and says "starting database service" for a few seconds then just disappears (crashes I assume). We have the latest version of Java.
To try to isolate the issue I created a new sample data file for the server to work with. The server loaded up fine with the fresh sample data file. This leads me to think that it may be our data file that's causing the issue?
Another thing to note, embarrassingly we somehow missed the version 8 updates, so have jumped directly from version 7 to 9. Perhaps there were some changes to the database structure in a previous update that we missed? I tried looking for previous versions to download to see if we could step up to V.9.0 gradually but cannot find anywhere to download previous versions.
I've checked the log associated with trying to open our datafile with onCourseServer and there's nothing in it! The date and time on the log file updates to the current time of opening onCourseServer but the file is empty in notepad.
No rush to reply but any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you
