I downloaded and installed the trial version of DW 8. My 30-day trial ran out before I purchased the upgrade so I had to revert back to DW MX 2004. I ran into a DB connectivity snag while working on a site originally created in DW MX 04, then worked on with the new DW 8, and then further worked on back in the old version of DW.
The problem is that DW MX 04 no longer introspected the database. But when I tested the connection, it was just fine. What gives?
I traced the problem to the files in the _mmServerScripts folder. When I installed DW 8, new versions of the files were placed in this folder. When I reverted back to DW MX 04, the new versions of the files no longer did a part of their job. Namely, to introspect the database.
The fix is to delete the files in the _mmServerScripts folder, then retest your connection. The act of testing the connection discovers that the files are missing and replaces them. However, since the test is done in DW MX 04, the correct version of the files is placed in the folder.
So, if you find that DW no longer knows about the tables, stored procedures, and views in your database but testing the connection is successful, AND you've loaded DW 8 and reverted back to DW MX 04, there's your solution!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend a week on a deserted tropical island? Well, I'm here to tell you it's wonderful. Do it if you ever get the chance. No phones, no internet or email. No husbands and no kids. Just 6 middle-aged women, hundreds of sand crabs, a couple of iguanas, and a varied assortment of sea creatures.
I've posted the pictures in two folders depending on your patience!
Awesome sunrises and sunsets.
