I have just installed a trial version of SQL Toolbelt to evaluate SQL Compare. However I get the error "Unable to connect to the Redgate Client Service".

How can I get a new trial licence?

    Glad this was sorted - I just wanted to chip in in case anyone else looks at this thread.

    The Redgate Client Service is a Windows service that runs on your local machine. If your Redgate tools can't connect to it, the service may not have started for some reason. You can manage Windows services by running "services.msc" and check that the service is running.
