We are trying to test SQL Compare to see if it will fit into our setup. For this I need to work with the API.
First problem I encountered was with the latest version: the DLL's weren't in the SQL Compare folder. Though I did find them in some other applications' folders, it didn't work for me and I decided to go with v. 9.0.
My issue at the moment is, that when I run my application, having added the licenses.licx file to my project referencing 'RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine.Database,RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine', I get the error message: "This is a trial. To use SQL Comparison SDK after the trial expires, you must buy a copy from www.red-gate.dk
. You have no days left of your free trial.".
I did this on two machines, neither of them have ever had any Red Gate applications installed.
The Red Gate support told me to use a code to extend my trial, which I did insert into the SQL Compare application, but this has no effect on the API.
Does anyone have any ideas what to try in order to continue.
