10020: This DACPAC was created using a newer version of DAC Framework

Dec 16, 2011 at 3:32 PM


I get this error using DacClient 1.2 with Data tier 2012 RC0

I created my bacpac on november the 15th.

Any clue ?

My bad, I did not install all the newer versions of the prerequisites.

everything is allready up to date; but still not working. I have to check the option to create the dacpac file for the previous version of the framework. but the new one doesn't works.

can you provide more details around what you used to generate the bacpac file and how you are attempting to use it?

Example:  exported from SQL Server 2008r2 using SQL Server 2012 RC0 DAC binaries, now attempting to import to SQL xxxx with DAC binaries version xxxx.
