Hi there,

I'm trying to run bmdbupdate.exe from a machine that is not the same as the database server. I know I must first use the 'C' option to configure the conn and init options, but what format do these options take? There are no examples and bmdbupdate.exe does not produce any error messages.

For example, what is the connection string format, and what is the init option used for?

The connection string format is just a typical database connection string. You can follow the examples listed here: http://connectionstrings.com/

Specifying init as "yes" will initialize the database if it hasn't already been initialized. You'll need to specify this if you're running the changescripter tool against a DB for the first time.
