Re: McAfee Risk Advisor 2.6.1 upgrade

There is a database collation mismatch noted in the last error in your post. This is usually the result of running a DB collation other than the required SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS. I'm not sure why 2.6 would have installed on a server with an unsupported collation, but my guess would be that the 2.6.1 version of the extension uses syntax that will only work properly on the required collation.
