Hi Joe,

in general any Nintex installation or upgrade should run without error messages. Is the installer account only used for installations or is it also used to set up the farm?

Could you open SQL Management and check permissions for user installer on the content database mentioned in the error message? I suggest you give it write permissions to the content database and see if the error persists.

Best regards

Phillip, I got on a support call with a rep. I know it was database permission issue, but not sure exactly what was done.
