|Hi my company has recently acquired the SQLtool belt and I am trying to get the command line to work properly for the Packager. I am using version 126.96.36.199.
If I use the User interface I am able to generate a exe successfully. However, when I run the command line version I always get the same error using the following configuration file:
Used mapping option 'IgnoreSpaces'
Used mapping option 'IncludeTimestamps'
Used mapping option 'IncludeIdentities'
Used Sql Option 'DisableKeys'
Used Sql Option 'DontOutputComments'
SQL Data Compare running with Mapping Option: IgnoreSpaces (OK).
SQL Data Compare running with Mapping Option: IncludeTimestamps (OK).
SQL Data Compare running with Mapping Option: IncludeIdentities (OK).
SQL Data Compare running with SQL Option: DisableKeys (OK).
SQL Data Compare running with SQL Option: DontOutputComments (OK).
SQL Data Compare running with Mapping Option: MissingFrom2AsInclude (OK).
Comparing database SQLCOMPARE.DB with database SQLCOMPARE.DB 188.8.131.522...
Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
I am able to generate the exe from the UI and the API. Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this issue on my end? Also, if I try to use the following with the working project file I still get the above error:
As a confirmation as this working, here is the output from the exe with the successful data additions:

|I thought I'd just post here to follow up in case anyone else experienced this error.
We followed up with jpatches23 and narrowed the problem down to a bug in the Data Compare engine. This has now been resolved with a patch for SQL Packager. If you need to obtain this to get around this error, please contact support.
