To resolve this issue:

  1. Do not start up the HsqlDbSchemaUpdator script via double clicking on it. Instead, use Terminal (Mac) or cmd.exe (Windows) to run the script.

  2. Change the directory to the folder Update.

  3. Run the HsqlDbSchemaUpdator script only when it is located within this folder. Be sure to provide the path to the HSQL Database folder as one of your parameters. For example:

    For Mac OS X:
    [UserName]$ cd /Applications/Quark Publishing System/QPS Server/database/hsqldb/Update
    [UserName]$ ./ ../

    For Windows:
    cd \Program Files\Quark\Quark Publishing System\QPS Server\Database\hsqldb\UpdateHsqlDbSchemaUpdator.bat ..\
