Error when committing

Postby butlerat » Fri Jul 22, 2011 2:49 pm

I'm getting the following error when attempting to commit my database:

Could not find a part of the path '\\\\.\\con'.

This occurs on the second step (Writing data changes to a temporary directory).

Any ideas on what would be causing this and how to work around it?

Ok, I think I can guess what is causing the problem.

We have a schema in the database named 'con'.

In Windows, you cannot create an extensionless file named 'con' as this is a reserved filename (used for the console).

This could be fixed if the temporary file being generated had an extension (e.g. con.tmp).

Unfortunately we are unable to change the name of our schema. Hopefully this can be fixed as this bug will stop us purchasing SQL Source Control.

Thanks for your post.

Checking our bug history at this end, it looks like similar issues have been raised before, but were fixed back in 1.1

If the error you received had a "serious error? send report" link on it, could you please submit that, along with your email address in the box so I can find it, and we can see what's going on?

I agree, it's most likely the "con" that's breaking it.

*Edit* scrub the above, I've found the error report!

Thanks for the update.

If you need any testing done on an updated version then let me know and we can test it out.

Do you have any idea on if/when we'll get a fix for this?
