When running the Version Upgrade Wizard to upgrade SQL Server 6.x to SQL Server 7.0, if a database whose name is 30 characters long is excluded from the upgrade, the wizard generates an unhandled exception and stops running.

If Dr. Watson is set as the default debugger, an error message similar to the following will be displayed immediately after clicking the EXCLUDE button:
An application error has occurred
and an application error log is being generated.

Exception: privileged instruction (0xc0000065), Address: 0x007f1a80
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in SQL Server 7.0 Service Pack 1. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
