Announcing SQL Compare 10.2, available through Check for Updates and the download link below:

http://downloads.red-gate.com/checkforu ... .0.696.exe

New Features:

* You can now specify source control repositories and versions on the command line, and migration scripts will work with command line synchronizations / script generation.

* Licensing of the command line can also be done entirely from the command line with no UI elements, so the command line can now be activated on non-interactive servers without having to copy files.

* New option: Ignore system named constraint and index names - this will ignore (at both compare and deploy time) the names of indexes, statistics, foreign keys, primary keys, and unique, default and check constraints where these have been autogenerated by SQL Server rather than user-assigned.

* New SSMS Integration: SQL Compare projects can be found and comparisons launched from inside SSMS, including SQL Server 2012 SSMS; integration will now be set up by the main installer rather than needing seperate installation.

* SQL Snapper is now included in the SQL Compare install by default. SQL Snapper is a standalone utility which can be used to take snapshots of databases on machines that don't have their own SQL Compare license - so you can e.g. troubleshoot problems or prepare deployment scripts for clients or customers with machines you can't access by getting them to send you the snapshot.

    I am having the same problem as Clint.

    I guess there's a first time for everything. I've been using this program for a couple of years now and this is the first time an upgrad has killed my ability to do my job. I am getting the same error as specified below by clint2627. It is only on some of my databases, though. They are SQL 2000 databases and they are production db's used by a major corporation. I have copies that I work with on a development server. All server instances are upgraded with the latest service packs and patches, etc.

    PLEASE figure this out fast and post a patch. I'm working on a deadline and the client is going to have a total meltdown if the work isn't completed on time.
