How can I correct a failed FishEye backup restore?

My environment is Windows Server 2008. As a result of experiencing many problems with a FishEye 3.7 upgrade some months ago, I decided to uninstall FishEye 3.7 and replace it with a 3.9.1 installation.

FishEye has always been configured to perform a backup each night and the most recent ones (the last three) are in FISHEYE_INST/Data/backup.

As per the instructions for restoring a FishEye backup -, I shut down the newly installed FishEye service before attempting a restore opf the most recent backup.

Unfortunately, the restore failed with the following output to the FishEye logs (emphasis mine):
