Hi Guys ,i am so lost in this error message .Could someone could help me

when call the register function to Register the database, it raise this error all the same.if there hasn't Encrypted objects, it can work well.

DALCompareReport logreport = new DALCompareReport();
string DifferentType = string.Empty;
string FileName = string.Empty;
Options myoptions = Options.Default | Options.DecryptPost2kEncryptedObjects | Options.IgnorePermissions | Options.IgnoreWhiteSpace | Options.IgnoreUsers;

public void RunCompareRport(int RID,string SourceServer, string SourceDB, string DesServer, string DesDB)
using (Database stagingDB = new Database(), productionDB = new Database())
//ConnectionProperties sourceConnectionProperties = new ConnectionProperties(Program.StagingServerName, Program.StagingDatabaseName);
// ConnectionProperties targetConnectionProperties = new ConnectionProperties(Program.ProductionServerName, Program.ProductionDatabaseName);

ConnectionProperties sourceConnectionProperties = new ConnectionProperties(SourceServer, SourceDB);
ConnectionProperties targetConnectionProperties = new ConnectionProperties(DesServer, DesDB);

// Connect to the two databases and read the schema
Console.WriteLine("Registering database " + targetConnectionProperties.DatabaseName + " on server " + DesServer);

productionDB.Register(targetConnectionProperties,myoptions); --error happen in this line

    Thanks for your post, and sorry you're having some trouble.

    If you have encrypted objects, then you need to ensure the backupreader DLL is included in your solution. In addition, you must compile specifically for "X86" rather than "AnyCPU".

    Once you've checked that, if the problem persists, can you let us know:

    - does the same thing happen in the SQL Compare GUI?
    - what version of the Compare DLL are you using in your solution?

    Hi, i found this error only raise when the target server is X64, it would be ok if the trarget db server is X32 bit.

    i have included the backupreader.dll and compiled my project as x86

    there hasn't any problem when used the Sql Compare GUI.

    i am using the Sql Comparision SDK 8.0

    the issue i came cross is similar with this one

    Did compiling for 32-bit fix it? The BackupReader component (required for encryption) is 32-bit only which is why you need to do this.

    If the problem persists, you may have an older DLL but I thought v8 should be ok. Check the version number of the actual DLL you are referencing.

    Can you try installing SQL Compare using this link and then reference all the DLLs in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Red Gate\SQL Compare 8" instead of the ones in the SDK folder?

    Hi james, it can works by using the sql compare 8.5 version.

    but i am a liittle confuse that why this error happened on the sdk 8.1,
    it can works when i was using the Compare 8.1 UI .

  • Options
    If you were using the 8.1 DLLs these may be different to the ones in 8.1 of Compare (there are "sub-versions"). Or it may have been a problem just accessing the DLLs via your own code rather than how Compare uses them internally. If it's good with the newer ones though, that's great.
