edited October 9, 2008 1:43PM in SQL Comparison SDK Previous Versions
We have a license of the SQL Toolkit version 6 but it's now called SQL Comparison SDK version 7. My question is do we have to upgrade/purchase a new license to use this for SQL Data Compare 7 and SQL Compare 7 (we are currently using version 6 for both). Also are these licenses PC specific? Could I transfer the license off of one PC to use it on another or would I have to purchase it again?

Thanks for your question. If you purchased a support/upgrades contract, you are entitled to upgrade for free. If not, please contact [email protected] for a quote.
The license is per user. To move a license, you must deactivate it from one PC and activate it on another by following the instructions at: http://www.red-gate.com/supportcenter/G ... oducts.htm

Thanks for your reply. Will SQL Toolkit work with SQL Data Compare 7 and SQL Compare 7 or will we have to upgrade to SQL Comparison SDK 7?
To use the dlls that come with SQL Compare and Data Compare 7, to use any the new features / take advantage of the bug fixes in your code, or to load their projects, or to read their snapshots, you'll need the new SDK.
If you just happen to be using the new tools on the same live / script / backup databases as your old code, that will probably still work fine.

If I was creating a dll instead of an application and one of my functions returns the object Differences, would an application using my dll require the SQL Comparison SDK to use this object?
