Application exception after v12.4.7 Upgrade


Myself and several colleagues have recently applied the latest available update to SQL Data Comp application. Although the comparisons run through we've found errors when selecting the [Comparison Key] and [Column] hyperlinks in the [Tables & views] tab. A dialog box stating "notify Redgate of this error is launched several times but unfortunately dialog is then disabled and most of text is out of focus and illegible - the last run kept the message "Provide value on 'System.Windows.Markup.StaticResourceHolder' threw and exception" in the error details section.

A general windows error "SQL Data compare has stopped working" is then shown and only option is to close.
Text from the problem details is included below though I suspect this is a general error which may be of little use. I've checked and the .log file is not updated following the crash so I'm not able to send that through.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled v12 and updated to the v12.0.33.3389 patch - functionality works as expected. Updating to results in same issue.
Host OS examples include Win 8.1 and Win 10 Pro 64-bit using SQL2008R2 and SQL2012 database versions.

Originally I thought it was individual setup issue but as others in my team encountering same problem over different host OS versions I need to check this with you.
