I bought the PRO license, because I liked the feature to use SQL data compare on a SQL backup file directly. And that is only in the PRO license. However, now I can't get it to work with any backup file. I tried many different backup files and everytime I hit "compare now", it starts, but then after a few seconds, it stops with the message "unable to open backup file". No other message whatsoever, just that.
The strange thing is, when I open the BAK file, it immediately tells me the info in the start-screen. It shows me that the file contains a full backup, data and the correct database. But then, when I start comparing, it fails.
Can anybody tell me what I have to check to make SQL backup files work with SQL data compare PRO? Maybe specific security settings?
