"Automation License: in trial" after updating to 10.2

Postby gvsoft » Thu Aug 16, 2012 7:53 pm

I just updated my SQL Compare from 10.1 to 10.2. Now when I run SQL compare from the command line, I get:

SQL Compare: activated, edition: professional, serial number: (my serial here)
Automation License: in trial, expires 8/30/2012 6:46:45 PM

What is this all about?

Please ignore this. Because many Red Gate SQL tools, such as SQL Compare, are licensed per user and not per machine, this wasn't compatible with the growing trend of installing SQL Compare on servers or build agents. Therefore a new license was introduced recently, the Automation License, to cover its use in such cases. However, there is a 'bug' whereby we show the trial expiry message even if the command line is licensed using the conventional per-user license. If you ignore this it will go away once the 14 days are up.
