I just installed the latest version on SQL Compare and now I receive the error "User does not have permission to perform this action." during reading permissions phase. No permissions have been changed on our server and previous version was working fine before upgrading.

    Hi Rob,

    Sorry to hear you've hit this known issue with the 11.3.0 release. Due to some changes to how we detect versions, additional permissions were required when running on Sql Server 2008 and later if the database was set to a compatibility level. I'm pleased to say we've produced a fix for the issue and you can get this on our frequent updates channel. To enable frequent updates please see our documentation here.
