Errors starting 4d server v17HF4 on Windows Server 2012 R2

I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 install that I’m trying to update this morning.

At startup, the 4D Server.exe is giving me a series of error dialogs like in this link:

The database names I’m getting errors on are
pk_wizard.4DC
Preferences.4DC
runtime.4DC
wrap.4DC

I re-installed the 4D Server folder with no luck.

I cleared all the 4D related folders except the Licenses folder as suggested in the post above, but again no luck.

I restarted the machine and was successful.

So the question is…what caused this problem to begin with and how can we avoid it in the future?

Thanks,
