Upgraded to 8.1.1 from 8.0.5 and now get 'TeamCity has failed to start'??

I just upgrade from v8.0.5 to v8.1.1 and now the URL <http://localhost:8080/mnt> gives me the error message:

   TeamCity server startup error

This is the first upgrade I have done with TeamCity, since I installed this the first time.
I have no idea what to do with this message.

I have tried un-installing and reinstalling but still get the same issue??

Help is greatly welcome at this point to get this working again.
Don't want to go back to manually building projects. :-)

Turns out that the System Environment Setting 'TEAMCITY_DATA_PATH' needed to be updated to point to 'C:\ProgramData\JetBrains\TeamCity' to correctly pick up the database.

After the upgrading the database all seems well now.

you should delete the registry image and re-installed it;
