Hi Brian,

Brian Donahue wrote:Just to confirm: you are using VS2005 and .NET Framework 2.0? At the start of the thread it looked like VS2003 was trying to load lc.exe from .NET 2.0's folder.

I checked my system. I have installed .Net 2 and VS 2005. No SKD 1 and no VS 2003.

So there should be no problem with wrong lc.exe. There is only one lc.exe on my system.

Kind regards

I'd recommend contacting support to resolve this using remote desktop tools. I've pretty much run out of ideas. Can you give us a call at 866 733 4283 or send us an email to with your contact details? Unfortunately I haven't been able to find you in our contacts database by name or email. You may want to include your serial number in any correspondence to speed things up.

SQL Compare API - Distributing Application

The SQL Compare API
Distributing Your Applications
Glossary Item Box

To distribute your applications:

Ensure you have a valid SQL Toolkit serial number.
If you do not have a valid, activated serial number, the applications you distribute will display a trial expiry dialog box and will stop working when your trial expires.

Add a licenses.licx file to your C# or Visual Basic .NET project in Visual Studio.
If a licenses.licx file does not exist in your Visual Studio 2005 project, you must create one with the following entries in it:

RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine.Database, RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine

Compile your application.
If you have a valid serial number and a valid licenses.licx file, your executable file will run SQL Compare without displaying the trial expiry dialog box.

Distribute your application.
You must distribute the following files with your application:





Note that you are not permitted to distribute any other Red Gate files. In particular, you must not distribute any .lic files.
