SQL Bundle and DTS Compare in the same folder

Postby colinbo » Wed Feb 15, 2006 7:50 pm

We're using SQL Bundle on our build server to snapshot databases with each build of the application. I was going to install DTS Compare to play around with it and I did so by placing it in the same folder (C:\\Tools\\SQLBundle). It seems that the application doesn't like to live in the same folder as it crashes:

Event Type: Information
Event Source: Application Popup
Event Category: None
Event ID: 26
Application popup: RedGate.DtsCompare.UI.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services : Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.

Process id=0x15b4 (5556), Thread id=0x1750 (5968).

Click OK to terminate the application.
Click CANCEL to debug the application.

Is this expected? I'll install it to a different folder for now, but I thought this was a weird behaviour that was worth reporting.

Are you using DTS Compare in conjunction with SQL Bundle 3.x or 4.1? I'd imagine that installing DTS 2 with Bundle 3 would overwrite one of the shared files such as RedGate.Licensing.Client.dll.

Hi Brian,

It's the 4.1 release of the SQL Bundle Developer Edition.

As you've spotted, you'll need to install it in a separate directory. It uses different versions of some common files.
