Though your screenshot is long gone, this issue is most likely caused by a missing DBDiff.SciLexer[32|64].dll.

Pending patch 6463 (download) should resolve this issue for both 32-bit and 64-bit users.

After this patch, Open DBDiff will build as a 32-bit project which should be compatible with 64-bit machines. This workaround was proposed by CodePlex user teleyah on workitem 9565. For your convenience, updated binaries are included in the patch alongside the updated

Related Work Items:

  • 10571 - Open DBDiff has stopped working
  • 9565 - Program immediately crashes when opened
  • 9527 - BadImageFormatException was unhandled

The updated projects reference the following assemblies from the Open DBDiff 0.8.5 release (also in the patch's binaries folder) from the solution root:

  • Ascend.dll
  • Ascend.Resources.dll
  • Ascend.Windows.Forms.dll
  • DBDiff.SciLexer32.dll
  • System.Data.SQLite.Dll
