I can't seem to find Sql Compare in your list.

I am having a problem all of a sudden with all of my Sql Server 2008 databases. They worked fine before.

I am getting an error:

SQL Compare Aborting

Registering databases
database-reading object text

Index was outside the bounds of the array.

I can't compare any of my 2008 databases now.

2005 databases work fine.

What is the problem?

    Also, I did try to delete all the projects and recreate them but that didn't seem to work.

    Which version (i.e. 7.0, 7.1, 7.2) of SQL Compare are you using?

    If it's one with the logging functionality in, you should be able to access the engine log from the 'icon menu' (the menu off the SQL Compare icon in the very top left of the window). If you set the logging to 'verbose', it should give you information about what object is causing it to fail and hopefully also a stack trace you can send us, which might help us work out what's gone wrong.

    If it's an earlier version without the built-in logging, it might still be possible to turn on logging in a more manual fashion - I can give you instructions for that if necessary.

    The version I am using is:

    Here is the logging results:

    How would I get a stack trace?
