BESX 5.0.1 update failure loop

Ran update to bring BESX 5.0.1(2) to 5.0.2. Setup stopped with "Setup application cannot update settings for the blackberry attachment service and will close" - and it closes. when I try to open server configuration panel I get "Please run setup.exe to complete the intallation before launching the blackberry server configuration panel". But, when I try to run setup.exe, I get the same error that I listed at first. BES is working fine still, but I cutting over to a new exchange server and when we cut over internet access, blackberry fails because it is still looking for the old server (because I can't run server config panel).

The latest version of BES Express is 5.0.3.

The quickest way to upgrade to the latest build is to just download the product fresh from your original download link and install on top. All settings are retained but it does the upgrade gracefully.

What if you manually stop the BB services and then try to run the setup ?

What is Ridge2k8 ?

- Rancy
SNCSDAuthor Commented:
Rancy - Ridge2k8 is the server that BES is installed on. I did try stopping the services manually and install on top.

Simon - I was looking at that as my next step. just a bit tentative as I didn't want to compound an issue that may have a bigger effect. I may just have to go for it.

Thanks All. will post results.
