Reverting to an older version of Vista / Downgrading Vista

Issue

Reverting to an older version of Vista / Downgrading Vista

Environment

TAC Vista Server IV

Cause

Typically done on an engineering PC, downgrading a version of Vista can result in problems since this is not a practice that is rigorously tested.

Resolution

  1. When restoring a previous version or downgrading Vista the first thing to do is to delete the TAC Shared Folder (Program Files/ Common Files/TAC Shared).
  2. After the directory is removed then run the older version install files.
  3. If you are using Vista 4.3.0 or higher, be certain that your Computer Name in Instance field of Server Setup/SQL Server is correct, (ComputerName/TACVISTA).
  4. You can test the SQL connection to verify it is correct after the installation is complete.
