I downloaded and installed the MonetDB 4.12.0 with SQL 2.12.0 from
SourceForge using the link on the MonetDB website.


I installed it without error but when I try to start the database with
sql_server I get the following error:

# Monet Database Server V4.12.0

!ERROR: Incompatible database version 020000, this server supports

!mvc_init: unable to create system tables
!ERROR: interpret: no matching MIL operator to 'mapi_register(void)'.

Laptop is a Dell C800 with 512M memory and Windows 2000 Professional,
version 5.0.2195 Service Pack 4 Build 2195.

I know this isn't the best platform to run MonetDB on but it will be a
couple of weeks before I can free up a linux server so any help would be
