Unlicensed copy

Hi,

I am running the SQL compare on a server with the command line tool. I have not installed the product on the server, just the files mentioned in the Help for the command line interface:

SQLCompare.exe:
SQLCompare.exe
RedGate.CommandLine.Common.dll
RedGate.SQLCompare.Distribution.dll*
RedGate.SQLCompare.Distribution.mod*
RedGate.SQL.Shared.dll
RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine.dll
RedGate.SQLCompare.CommandLine.dll
SQLCompare.exe.config


But when I am running my *.bat file I get the error:

Error: This is an unlicensed copy of the red gate SQL command-line.

Before copying the above mentioned files to the server, I activated my SQL Compare tool on my personal computer..

Is this not the way to do it?

We are running: SQL Compare 5.3 (PRO)

    This is the correct way of doing it, and I have just tested this out against v5.3 to make sure it works. I can't explain why it wouldn't. Has SQL Compare already been activated on the same machine?
