Very smooth From (localDb)\v11.0 to Azure .... thank you!

But when I attempt to go from Azure to my localDb I get a

The instance of SQL Server you attempted to connect to does not support encryption

when I attempt to Connect to Server in the 'Setup Target Server Connection"

The script that was generated and saved worked perfectly when run manually against the localDb to generate the table schemas and I assume I can use Management Studio to now move the data... or not.

Can you edit SQLAzureMW.exe.config file and search for “ConnectionString”?  You will find two entries.  In both strings you will find “Encrypt=true;”.  Can you remove that and then try again?  Let me know if that does not work.

Works like a charm ... soooo much nicer than Management Studio.

thank you!
