VuGen 9.5 and SQL Server 2008 Conflict

I was using the stand-alone version of Vugen used with Performance Center 9.5, and I noticed that it would crash every time I tried to create a parameter file.

After some research, I found out it is because SQL Server 2008 was installed on the machine. Apparently, Vugen is doing something that conflicts with the mfc80.dll or mfc80u.dll file used by SQL Server 2008. This problem not only affects Vugen, but other applications as well.

Here is a link to more information on the topic:

And here is the location of the hotfix (downloads tab, ENU version is the english version):

http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/KB961894

I applied the hotfix from this page, and I can now create a parameter again. I do not know if this problem affects other versions of Vugen.

Good luck!

Thanks,
Scott.
