BE 12.5 is not supported for installation on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server...You need to upgrade to BE 2010 R3 with SP3 in order to do this.

If you have maintenance in place, download BE 2010 R3 on the link below. You will need to contact the licensing department to get new licenses. Install BE 2010 R3 SP3 and then push-install the new agents to any remote servers.

Just grab copies of the Data/Catalogs folders before performing the upgrade...


EDIT: Get BE 2010 R3 SP3 below:

And if you STILL get this error after upgrading, check the TN below:
