SQL Comparison SDK without SQL Compare?

Toan NguyenToan Nguyen Posts: 3

I was just wondering if we can just purchase the SQL Comparison SDK to write our own comparison apps and distribute them to our clients without purchasing the SQL Compare product? Each time we update our main application we would like to run a script to compare and update the client's SQL DB automatically. The idea is to create the latest DB schema, include it in the update, use our own Compare-SQL utility to create the client's DB schema and compare them. Then update the client's DB if there's any changes without manual intervention. Having said that my main questions are:

1. Can we use SQL Comparison SDK to do what I described above? (We have Visual Studio and use C#)
2. If so can we only purchase SQL Comparision SDK or do we have to purchase additional tool and/or license?
3. Can the utilities created with SQL Comparison SDK be distributed royalty-free or do have to get them licensed?

Thank you very much for your time and I'm eagerly awaiting your response.
