Error when editing connectionstring



I have just downloaded beta 3.6, and I get the following error, when pressing Edit for a connectionstring:

Hi KBLarsen,

Before I start investigating further, can you try to start SCD Merge Wizard as administrator (Run as Admininistrator)?

I tried that, and I get the same error.

Just to make it clear; If I enter the connectionstring in the text field, I can use the wizard. The error only comes, if I press the Edit button.

I found an error: obviously I forgot that 2 DLL's should be copied next to the ScdMergeWizard.exe. I will definitely need to create some kind of installer.

Anyway, thank you for noticing and reporting this.

This issue should be fixed with version 4.0 installer.
