If you're not sure where the file is located on your hard drive, it's easy to find it. Go to the Windows Start Menu (by pressing the key on the lower left of your keyboard with the Windows logo on it - it's usually located between the Ctrl and the Alt key), then press "f" for "file" and "f" for "find". In the box, type sqlct50setup.exe. Then, hit "enter" (or click the Find Now button). When the computer displays a line beginning with sqlct50setup.exe, simply double-click the word sqlct50setup.exe, and the installation will begin.
In order to connect to a server, MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components) 2.5 or higher needs to be installed on the target computer. Usually, these components are present on most computers; if they are missing, SQL Server Comparison Tool will display instructions for downloading and installing them (you can download MDAC from http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm ; please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions).
Here's why our customers love SQL Server Comparison Tool
Edward Mansfield, Professional Loss Control
SQLCT is an excellent tool, BTW. After just a few weeks of use I have become dependent on it, and I am feeling lost without it. It has saved me hours of tedious manual cross-comparisons, and eliminated a lot of potential for human error. I have a growing number of SQL database instances all based on the same ‘master’ DB design, but each holding data for individual clients. I found SQLCT invaluable for comparing and validating the various DB instances whenever a change is introduced. I was considering cobbling together a simple DB comparison tool for the purpose myself, but SQLCT does everything I need, and so much more, and with a much more professional user interface than the simple command-line tool I was planning. And for a fraction of the cost, considering the time it would have taken me to build the tool I was planning. Kudos to you for producing a really useful piece of software.

Several months ago I downloaded the trial versions of several DB Compare utilities that I was able to find using google. I had considerable trouble with most of the them crashing when attempting to analyze a production system, but using your product I was able to isolate and solve the problems I was having. I decided to add it to my toolkit and have recommended it to a few others.
