After upgrading to 10.2.3.1 from v7 I get an error immediately when I start the tool.

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

No other information is presented.

I have the SSMS 2012 tools installed.

Please help.

Thanks for your post.

This is actually a known issue. I believe you submitted a bug report when you hit this, so you should have been sent an email with the workaround. If you didn't get it, this was the gist of it:

Quote:
The execption was caused becuase your current WriteToFileOptions.xml file is in a state that we cannot read.

You should be able to resolve this by deleting the file found at %localappdata%\Red Gate\SQL Compare\WriteToFileOptions.xml

The next time you run SQL Compare, it will write out a new WriteToFileOptions.xml in the correct format.

You may need to re-enter your custom folder layout in the usual place and save your default settings for this feature again to restore your default settings to your usual layout.


I hope this helps.
