Pro V standalone

Hi, For both SQL Compare and Data Compare what are the differences between the versions that are packaged with Toolbelt Essentials and buying these 2 products alone? 


  • To be clearer, I'd like to know if the standard versions of SQL Compare and Data Compare are able to be called programatically - E.g. 

    process = new Process();
    process.StartInfo.FileName = sqlDataCompare;
    process.StartInfo.Arguments = string.Format("/backup1:{0} /backup2:{1} /scriptfile:{2}", currentBackup, previousBackup, sqlDataChanges); 
    process.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
    process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
    process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;
    process.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
    process.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
    sqlCompareOutput = process.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
    sqlComareError = process.StandardError.ReadToEnd();

  • Hi @richard_litzo

    I'm not sure if they tools can be called programmatically in this manner, however, for any form of automation with these two tools, you will need SQL Toolbelt license

    Kind regards
