Upgrade Issue

Just upgraded 8.0 to and now the application will not restart, says encountered a problem and needs to close.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Dave

    I needed to get this fixed so I removed this oart of the toolbelt and used the latest version to re-install and it corrected the problem.

    Still not sure what the original issue was though.

    Hi David,

    In the case where a reinstall fixes a problem with SQL Data Compare starting up, my first thought is that .NET did not update the native image files and when you launched the program, a corrupt or outdated native image got loaded.

    Installing the program should trigger a native image update in .NET, but sometimes conflicts occur when a patch has also been applied to the .NET Framework that requires a reboot. If this happens again, a reboot/reinstall should definitely sort it out.
