  • Versions affected: SQL Toolkit 3.x-5.x with Visual Studio 2005
When compiling an application that uses one of Red Gate's API assemblies, you may get an error when you build the project:
RedGate.Licensing.Helper.dll is attempting managed execution inside OS loader lock.
This warning happens because .NET Framework 2.0 is more aggressive about its' type checking than previous versions of .NET. It will be perfectly safe to click 'continue' and allow the compiler to finish compiling the project.

Future versions of SQL Toolkit will be adjusted so that this exception will not appear.
