Hi,
We already were using successfully Sql Source Control 6 linked to a GIT repository.
After upgrading to Sql Source Control 7 we are not able anymore to compare two commits. It always returns : To use this database with SQL Source Control, you must have Team Explorer installed. 

I cannot undestand what's changed, TFS server is the same, Sql Source Control SSMS plugin is able to correctly read repository...

    Sorry, a little update : It is not liked to a GIT repository but to a TFS repo.  TFS Server is the same as was configured in SqlSourceControl6, everything is the same, we just updated SqlSourceControl. Maybe I need to clear some cache?

    [EDIT] I also have a VisualStudio2017 installed with its TeamExplorer. SqlCompare v13.8
    Other Data : TFS server is a 2018. 

    [EDIT 2] If I open SqlCompare and I try to set source as TFS I get : You can't link to TFS because you don't have the required software installed. For TFS2010 or later you can either use... etc..
    I have : SSMS 17.6 - VS 2017 Team Explorer
  • Hi @cca

    Sorry, you're experiencing this issue!

    So this is a recent bug with SQL Compare using the integration of SQL Source Control connecting to TFS, the team is currently  investigating the issue with the following reference: SOC-10208

    The current workaround I suggest is rather than selecting SQL Source Control as the Source or Target in SQL Compare, is to select a Scripts folder and reference the local copy of the repository.

    Hope this helps!

    Kind regards

    Hi DanC, thanks for the info. 
    Is there an url where I can follow issue's status?

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately the bug reference is internal and would advise keeping an eye on the release notes for both SQL Source Control and SQL Compare

    Kind regards
