not sure what you mean by update to 2.8

but if you mean Gamebase v1.3

this GB_ZX2 MDB file has been updated for Gamebase v1.3

There is no GB_ZX v2.8.
or Gamebase v2.8

are you using Gamebase v1.2?

do you get the error on other gamebases?

if so, you will have a Gamebase install error,
or you might be missing a DLL or VB file.

Uninstall Gamebase and start again.
with the V1.3 final version

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gamebas ... e/download

after you install, you might need to run this file first.

GBRegRun.exe

try using gbtoolbox on mdb files, to scan and fix any errors.

failing that i can't help you. :?
