When I was trying to publish a database to my shared hosting provider I encountered some problems with backup and restoring my database. To restore a database on my provider I needed a full Sql script (schema and data).
After a few attempts with SQL comparer and Management studio I found a link to ‘Microsoft SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard 1.1’. The Publising Wizard does complete backups to SQL script (including data).
When I tried running the Publishing Wizard on my Vista workstation it failed with the following error:
Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.BatchParser, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.
I fixed this error by installing the ‘Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 – November 2005’.
The Publishing Wizard a great tool!
