Installation does not detect MSSQL

sderricosderrico Posts: 5
Hello!

We are in evaluation of SQL Source Control.

This product is great. I tested and I am ready to buy.

I tried to install SQL Source Control on the workstation of the IT director of the company and the installation does not detect the MSSQL installation.

The first difference between my computer and his computer is that mine is in english and his is in french.

Does the system language affect the installation?

Thank you,
Have a great day!

    Hi

    We believe SQL Source Control should work on a French version of Windows (although the UI is not localized). I've asked a few questions below to help us diagnose the problem:

    1. Did you only have one instance of SSMS open? Because SQL Source Control will only appear in the first instance of SSMS opened.
    2. Which version of SQL Source Control and SQL Server SSMS are installed on the IT director's computer?
    3. Can you confirm that there is an registry entry at the following location on the director's computer:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\Downloads\SQL Source Control\3

    Best regards,

  • Hello Chris,

    We cannot install SQL Source Control 3 because we cannot check this component during the installation.
    The checkbox is disabled and there is a message like "SSMS MUST BE INSTALLED".

    There is two versions of SSMS installed. Here the related information of each:

    SQL SERVER MANAGEMENT STDIO 2008 R2

    Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 10.50.1617.0
    Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 6.1.7601.17514

    Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421
    Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.50727.5456
    Système d'exploitation 6.1.7601

    The SQL Source Control installer checks these keys to determine whether or not SSMS is installed. Maybe you do not have access to these keys or the appropriate one does not exist...
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ssmsee.sql.10.0\shell\Open\Command\(Default)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\sqlwb.sql.9.0\shell\Open\Command\(Default)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ssmsee.sql.9.0\shell\Open\Command\(Default)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\sqlwb.sql.10.0\shell\Open\Command\(Default)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ssmsee.sql.10.0\shell\Open\Command\(Default)
