When Launching SQL Compare, I get the following error:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException' occurred in mscorlib.dll

Additional information: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

Anyone know what is causing this?

My System is:
Windows 2003 Std
Sql Server 2005
Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite

    Sounds like a nasty business. SQL Compare 4 works on .NET 2005, so please make sure you've got v4, otherwise it's just a matter of your version of Framework being unsupported. Any Betas of .NET may also cause a problem.

    Basically any application that blows up at the MSCORLIB level probably points out a serious problem with your .NET Framework installation, so you'd want to look into possibly reinstalling it.
