.NET 2.0 and Upgrading to Metastorm BPM 6.6.4

Created: 16 May 2006

The information in this article applies to product: e-Work 6.6.x


  • 6.6.1, 6.6.2, 6.6.3 (withdrawn and replaced by 6.6.4), and 6.6.4 can run on a machine that does not have .NET 2.0 installed.

  •                                 The 6.6.1 and 6.6.2 Engine cannot run on a machine that has .NET 2.0 installed.                                

  • The 6.6.1 and 6.6.2 Designer require .NET 1.1. If .NET 2.0 is installed also, a configuration file must be downloaded and installed so that the Designer uses .NET 1.1. See Related Articles for more information.                                

  •                                 If the e-Work Engine is to be newly installed on a server with .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 already installed,                                 the Metastorm Install Utility for .NET 2.0 must be installed first. Next, install e-Work 6.6.1.                                 Then remove the install utility. Finally, run the 6.6.4 upgrade and then install the hotfix.
                                    The install utility is available for download from the Customer and Partner Zones of the Metastorm website.                                

  •                                 6.6.3 and 6.6.4 themselves do not require the install utility - only 6.6.1 (and only if .NET 2.0 is installed).                                

  • If 6.6.1 or 6.6.2 is installed and running, then .NET 2.0 is installed, 6.6.4 can be installed directly. The install utility is not required.

  •                                 The 6.6.2, 6.6.3, and 6.6.4 web extensions run as an ASP.NET application.                                 .NET 1.1 is required, so ASP.NET properties for the web extensions in IIS                                 should be explicitly set to run under ASP.NET 1.1, not 2.0 (if present).                                

  • NOTE: Engine server only: If the 6.6.4 upgrade was installed without ever installing 6.6.2 (e.g. 6.6.1 --> 6.6.3 --> 6.6.4, or 6.6.1 --> 6.6.4), then it is strongly recommended that the hotfix be installed. In addition to fixing a problem with memo fields, this hotfix also addresses an issue that was fixed in 6.6.2.

Post an example, and we will have a much better idea what the problem is. In about 90% of posts, the problem is one of communication. Examples bridge that gap.
