Command Line Error

I am using the trial version of SQL Compare to test creation of a snapshot on a remote database system, but it is generating an error. I need to test this process before purchasing because many of our databases do not allow direct external access.

DotNet 1.1 is installed on the PC I am running the snapshot from over PCAnywhere. The database is SQL Server 2000.

Here is my batch file text:
===========================================
SQLCompare /Server1:Database1 /makesnapshot:DB1.snp
===========================================

The error is from the Common Language Runtime Debugging Services.
"Application has generated an exception that could not be handled."
Process id=0xadc (2780), Thread id=0x534 (1332)


What am I doing wrong?

    Hello,

    The error message isn't incredibly revealing, but it usually indicates a problem with the Framework. What is the full version number you've installed? 1.1.4322.510 is a version that keeps popping up and causing us problems. It was a beta of Framework 1.1. The first full version of 1.1 was 1.1.4322.573. If you do not have this version, then please get it from Microsoft.

    Thanks!
  • After copying a number of RedGate and SQLCompare DLLs to the remote system and having the system administrator update DotNet (to 2.0), here is what I get just trying to access the help...

    Thanks for the stack trace. Now it's pretty clear that you're trying to run the program through a mapped drive or network share, which .NET doesn't allow. Maybe you can get this to work by using the .NET Framework 1.1 Wizards in your control panel->administrative tools? There is a wizard called 'trust an assembly' and you should be able to enter the path to the assembly and at that point you should not get the security exception any more.
