After enabling checkbox column in BeaTunes and restarting it, it will no longer launch.
First, a splash screen appears for a few seconds, informing me the database is being repaired.
Then, the following message appears:

Fatal error. org.hibernate.exception.GenericJDBCException: Unable to acquire JDBC Connection.

So far tried restarting my pc and re-installing the application - the issue still persists.

Attached is the application start log.

Please let me know how to fix.

    Hey Miron,

    is beaTunes giving you the options to rebuild the database? If so, please do this.

    If not, please delete beaTunes' database folder, while beaTunes is not running. Instructions can be found in the knowledge base article

    Kind regards,
