Sql Data Generator issue

Using SQL Data Generator

The following is the table that I'm trying to generate data for.
lname NVARCHAR(50), fname NVARCHAR(50), salary MONEY, last_upd DATETIME)

I'm getting this error during Creating Project step:
Cannot load the Backup Reader dll (see inner exception)!

Any help?

    Sorry you are experiencing this.
    Do you have any encrypted objects in your database?
    I believe you are running into a known issue under the internal reference number of SDG-1014.
    We hope to have this fixed in the next major release of the tool.
    Unfortunately I am unable to provide a timeline for when that will be.

    As a workaround you can try this older version of the tool. Some users have found that it does not give the error for the same databases.
