Does SQLCompare (or any of the Red Gate tools for that matter) use native SQL Server drivers or ODBC drivers?

Thank you.

    All current Red Gate SQL tools use the ADO .NET client to connect to SQL Server. Internally, this uses native SQL drivers rather than ODBC. This means that these tools can only connect to Microsoft SQL Server platforms and no other RDBMS such as Oracle or Sybase, if that's why you're asking. :-)
