Hi Norma,

I did resolve the issue.

Basically MAXDB Database sturio 7.8 requires JRE 1.6. I was having same issues. Then i uninstalled MAXDB

Uninstall the Database Studio version.

1. To uninstall, call the installation manager 7.8 ("Programs -> SAP MaxDB -> Installation Manager").

2. Choose "Remove MaxDB Installation".

3. Under "Legacy", select the Database Studio version.

Selecting "Legacy" ensures that you do not select the Database Studio 7.8 that you have just installed for uninstallation.

4. Choose "Forward" to confirm that you want the system to remove the installation.

Due to the operation of the earlier Database Studio version, some processes may still run (for example, serv.exe). Stop these processes and continue with the 7.8 installation.

And then installed JRE 1.6. Then again Installed MAXDB Database studio and got the same issue.

Then i deleted the files in location c:\Users\<User>\sdb\DatabaseStudio (deleted files .configuration, .metadata, p2) and then restarted maxdb database studio and worked for me.
