EX2 Kernel Upgrade

Having a problem with a EX2 kernel upgrade.

The current scenario is a central system with:

- Windows 2003 Server 64-bit

- X86_64 Hardware

- 4.6D EXT 32-bit Kernel

- MaxDB 7.6 64-bit

After upgrading to the EX2 kernel, the SAP system will not startup. The dev_w* files show:

ERROR => Get the precompiler version failed : sqlcode=-888 (Could not load libpcr (No registered version (7.5.0) found.))

\[dbslada.c 4234\]

***LOG BY2=> sql error -999 performing CON \[dbsh 0707 \]

***LOG BY0=> \[dbsh 0707\]

***LOG BY2=> sql error -999 performing CON \[dblink 0627 \]

***LOG BY0=> \[dbsh 0627\]

***LOG R19=> tskh_init: db_connect ( DB-Connect 000256) \[thxxhead.c 1187\]

in_thErrHandle: 1

*** ERROR -> tskh_init: db_connect (step 1, th_errno 13, action 3) \[thxxhead.c 8517\]

which appears to be a connection failure to the database.

The following MaxDB client software is installed:

PCR 7300 (

PCR 7301 (

PCR 7500 ( 64 BIT

Do I not have the correct MaxDB client software installed? Or do I need to something special since this is a 32-bit kernel combined with 64-bit RDBMS and OS?

Any thoughts?
