Did you install the SQL Server?  The toolset uses an SQL database, and won't run without it.


There is information about installing the toolset in the toolset wiki here.


I usually get an error when the installer tries to create an uninstall file, because it is not able to create the directory it puts it in - manually creating this subdirectory allows it to proceed: C:\Program Files\Common Files\BioWare.


The installation troubleshooting page in the toolset wiki is here.

Yes I did, I also checked the connection using ConfigurateToolset.


The Uninstaller was created succesfully.

MssqlIO.dll appears to be related to the sql database.

Exception code: c0000005 reads as an access violation.  It's possible the file is missing, or there may be a problem with permissions.

And I know the toolset will crash when you try to run it if it can't connect to the database.


So this points to a problem with the sql database server.


You could try running through the troubleshooting steps described for inability to connect to the database.


The last time I had problems getting the toolset to run (it couldn't connect to the database) was sudden.  I'd been using it for awhile, and it suddenly quit working.  I still don't know why, and none of the other troubleshooting steps helped me, but this is what I did to get it working again.


-- I uninstalled the toolset.

-- I followed the guidance on this site to independently install SQL Server 2005.  For step 4, I ended up using the 32-bit files instead of the 64 bit files, even though I'm working on a Win 10 64-bit system.

-- I also installed SQL Server Configuration Manager and saw that the new server I had installed was running.  I used the default server name SQLEXPRESS.

-- Then I reinstalled the toolset, and told it to use SQLEXPRESS instead of its default server (BWDATOOLSET).  This is shown under "Full Manual Install" about 2/3 of the way down the "unable to connect to the database" page.

-- Profit.  (it's been working ever since).


I don't know what else to tell you.  Good luck - I hope I've helped.


Please let us know if you get it working and how.  It may help others in the future.
