Ok, apparently the issue was caused by MSSQLServer, which had changed the format in which the version number was returned when queried and installshield 2015 couldnät interpret that. It seems to be fixed in 2016.

Hi guys, I'm maintaining an installscript project which contains SQL components which should be implemented to MS SQL Server Express databases. Everything has worked flawlessly for years until a week or two ago SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 3 GDR (KB 3194721) was introduced via Windows update ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54189 ). After this update whenever we try to run our installer, the following error appears when trying to connect to SQL server: SQLRTConnectDB function caused an error: The version of (local)\DATABASE present does not meet this setup's minimum requirements. This installation requires Microsoft SQL Server 11.00.2100, 9.00.1399, 10.00.1600, 10.50.1600, 10.00.2531, 9.00.4035, 9.00.3042, 9.00.2047 or later. This error appears always at least with 64 bit Windows 7 machines. I tried to modify the values in database requirements to meet the current database version 11.0.6567 to no avail. There is a log entry in SQL server indicating a successful login. Is the installshield simply unable to read the version correctly? Has anyone had similar issues or can you suggest any workarounds to get my installers running again? I'm currently using InstallShield 2015 Premium but I supposeI can upgrade to newer version if needed. Thank you in advance 🙂 BR, Pungero
