     Hi @ap_petko


    Thank you for reaching out on the Redgate forums regarding your SQL Prompt error message.

    The development team has confirmed that this is a known bug and they are currently looking into it.

     I will keep this forum post monitored and advise when a fix has been released.


    In the interim, it may be possible to downgrade your version to temporarily resolve this. 

    I have had reports from users that they were able to install v10.12.3 without error

    Download link available here: https://download.red-gate.com/checkforupdates/SQLPrompt/SQLPrompt_10.12.3.28623.exe


    Apologies for any inconvenience caused and hope to have an update in time for you with a better resolution.
