    Hi,
    You can open the installation file and upgrade the instance to avoid getting this exception.

    Otherwise purchase a licensed version.

    You can find the details of this error and the work around you supposed to do to resolve this issue in below link: sqlcoffee.com/Troubleshooting073.htm
