Version 3.1.8.276. I ran a compare between 2 DBs and then selected the text to sync server two with server one. When I right clicked and selected "Copy", I received the following error:
See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.


The actual copy did go to the clipboard, though.

This error has been happening for a while, and has been reported to Redgate in the past. We have tried suggested solutions but it still occurs.

Please advise,
Chris Stamey

    Hello,

    Sorry for the delay. The problem seems to be that by default, .NET allows data to be persisted to the clipboard after the application exists so it can be reused. Apparently this causes problems in the application if the clipbaord is used again.

    This problem is going to be fixed in the next major version of SQL Compare.
