This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS

I was trying to run a compare between 2 databases on the same server and received the following error message: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

According to Microsoft there is a hotfix available (KB935434). Does anyone know if this will address the problem we are experiencing?

    Hello,

    This error happens when FIPS policy checking is enabled. You can tell whether it's enabled by checking the registry key here: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FIPSAlgorithmPolicy\Enabled (1 is enabled and 0 is disabled).

    If you're allowed to disable it, you can change the value of that key to 0. You can also try creating a config file in the same folder as the .exe with the same name as the .exe. For example, in C:\Program Files (x86)\Red Gate\SQL Compare 10, create a file called RedGate.SQLCompare.UI.exe.config.

    You'll need the config file to contain the following:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <configuration>
    <startup>
    <runtime>
    <enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>
    </runtime>
    </startup>
    </configuration>

    This might not work in certain locked down environments.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks,
    Evan
