Hi,

I'm using SQLCompare 10.1.0.102

Given the following command line:

sqlcompare /server1:.\\SQLEXPRESS /database1:HT /makesnapshot:2-Schema.snp /force

SQL Compare produces the following message:

'mode' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

What does this mean? Should I be concerned? How do I resolve it?

The operation appears to complete successfully and (I think) I get the results I expect.

(edit: I just updated to 10.2.0.1337, but there was no change in behavior)

- Dennis

If you're using an older version of Windows, the SQL Compare and Data Compare command lines will now display this message when you run them.

It shouldn't affect their operation in any way - it's just that they're attempting to use a feature added in later versions to help fix awkward output in a few cases. The old behaviour should all be preserved in the case that this new feature is not available.

So - no need for concern, and we'll see if we can suppress the message in future versions.
