Hi Mark,

Thank you for your enquiry. My name is Brian Donahue and I am a support
engineer at Red Gate Software.

The problem that you describe could very well be caused by your system
upgrade. SQL Compare relies on some SQL system files that come with SQL
client-side tools. Perhaps the first step to take would be to re-install the
client-side tools from the Microsoft SQL Server CD.

Please let us know if this fixes the problem.

    FYI -- the information in this topic is only applicable to SQL Compare version 2.x. Versions 3 and up do not depend on the SQL client-side tools DMO library since they are built on .NET technology.
