13.3.8.6436 : Object reference not set to an instance of an object

kalokalo Posts: 71 Bronze 4
having installed the frequent update from the blue bar which popped up today, I am no longer able to run a comparison (Even if i compare a database to itself) i get the error : 
 : Object reference not set to an instance of an object

on first run after updated i got an error saying the Rewriter assembly was missing but that error disappeared following a close and reopen of the application.

But as it stands i'm now not in a position to use the application - is it possible to rollback to the previous working version?

    Hi @kalo,

    It seems strange that it would fail and then start working again. I'm not sure what would cause that. If it starts happening again, please contact our support team so that we can try and resolve this for you.

    If you still need to rollback to the prior version, you can download it here. You'll need to uninstall the current version first.

    update: having tried several times to compare 2 databases and getting the same error , i then tried comparing 2 script folders. This worked, and having got it to work and then trying other database comparisons the error went away. I then went back to my original database comparisons and these are now working too. So i've somehow flushed out whatever was causing the error without knowing what it was.

    Log full of  "Failed to resolve..." errors then the error message that popped up in the UI

    Any idea what would cause this - seems like a blip post-frequent-update ?
