Release Notes

Maintenance Release

Defect Fixes:
  • About Box now displays regional and language settings in effect.
  • SDF now notices if user locale changes from the system control panel. The only visible manifestation of this currently is if you right-click the header row of a result grid to open its context menu, then view the submenu with date formatting choices.
  • Changed Connection Editor's database dropdown to display non-system DBs only by default but with the shift key to also include system DBs.
  • Fixed Connection Editor to retain correct details of currently selected connection after saving the connection set.
  • In meta-query library (SQL Server only), deleted DatabaseName column from several queries because their domain is always the current database.
  • In meta-query library (SQL Server only), standardized field names in several queries.
  • In meta-query library (SQL Server only), added/modified ORDER BY clauses in several queries to eliminate warning messages when TurboSort is enabled at the time a meta-query is executed.
  • Installer now includes a shortcut for the user guide as a stub, directing user where to download the actual user guide.
  • Help menu now includes a menu item to open the user guide. If the user has already downloaded the separate user guide, it just opens. If not, SDF prompts the user to download it.

Very minor updates to the user manual are pending.

General Information

Requirements: .NET Framework 2.0

SqlDiffFramework is designed for the enterprise! Check with your system administrator (or see the user guide) for how to:
  • Point to the SqlDiffFramework repository (if any) so you will be notified of updates (user guide, section 2.2.2).
  • Load a set of of default database connections for your environment (user guide, section 2.2.1).

If you are running Windows XP and selected the large-address-space install, be sure your machine is configured to boot with the /3GB option--see boot.ini options.

SqlDiffFramework is easy to use but, you need to review the user guide for some key concepts!

A request to YOU...

While this is FREE software, consider this my modest price: after you have tried the software please come back to this page and add your rating above.

Reviews for this release

I was just about to request funds for a Redgate tool and then I found this. This is cool. Could use some minor improvements such as UI tweeks to make it more intuative. But overall, great tool; works as advertised. Recommended.

Great alternative if you don't have funds for Red Gate, or need to compare data other then from SQL Server to SQL Server. Excellent work and free! Recommended.
