I set up a SQL server profiler trace - the funny thing is no update statements are performed but somehow an exception is thrown resulting in a transaction rollback. See screen shot from profiler.

I fixed it by rewriting lines 118-122 in updatedb_helper.php:
        if ($iOldDBVersion < 290) {

            $oTransaction = $oDB->beginTransaction();

            // Loop all surveys
            $surveys = Survey::model()->findAll();
            foreach ($surveys as $survey)
                $prefix = Yii::app()->getDb()->tablePrefix;
                $tableName = $prefix . 'survey_' . $survey->sid;
            .... etc.

        if ($iOldDBVersion < 290) {

            $oTransaction = $oDB->beginTransaction();

            // Loop all surveys
                    $surveyquery = "SELECT sid FROM ".dbQuoteID('{{surveys}}');
                    $surveyids = Yii::app()->db->createCommand($surveyquery)->queryAll();
                    foreach ( $surveyids as $surv )
                $prefix = Yii::app()->getDb()->tablePrefix;
                $tableName = $prefix . 'survey_' . $surv['sid'];

Now I'm getting stuck in : function createSurveyMenuTable293($oDB):
    $oDB->createCommand()->createTable('{{surveymenu}}', array(
        "id" => "int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT",
        "parent_id" => "int DEFAULT NULL",
        "survey_id" => "int DEFAULT NULL",
        "order" => "int DEFAULT '0'",
        "level" => "int DEFAULT '0'",
        "title" => "character varying(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT ''",
        "description" => "text ",
"AUTO_INCREMENT" is not valid in ms-sql, IDENTITY should be used.
"timestamp" is not a valid data type in ms-sql - I think datetime should be used.
"ON UPDATE " can not be used this way in ms-sql, a separate trigger has to be defined for this functionality. See:
