Manual Connection and Service Name

How could I connect a DB with Service Name (instead of SID) with the release ?
The version gave possibility the possibility to select "Service Name", on the "Manual Connection" tab.

    Hi @flodab,

    This generally occurs because you do not have the correct bit version of the Oracle client installed for the version of Schema Compare for Oracle that you are using (32-bit or 64-bit each) - or alternately, you are using the wrong bit version of Schema Compare for Oracle to that of the Oracle client you do have installed.

    I am using Schema Compare for Oracle 5.2.3 64-bit and have the Oracle 12.1 64-bit client installed and I have the option for both SID and Service name:

    I hope that helps!

    Kind regards,
