Dependency on SQL Server 2012 RC0 components


You get a FileNotFoundException when you run the DacCli.exe since Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dac, Version= isn't included in the final release of SQL Server 2012.
Since these old assemblies are not included and can't be downloaded anymore, you simply can't get the app to run.

Which version of DacCli are you using? The latest version (1.6) is available at

Please try the latest versions of both.

V1.6 is for the "DAC SQL Azure Import Export Service Client v 1.6"-tool, but I'm using the "DAC Import Export Client-side Tools V 1.4" -tool. Can't seem to find a release newer than 1.4.
I'm trying to import a bacpac (from azure, but locally stored) to my local sql server (dev-machine).

Thanks alot.

The Required Assemblies page ( has links to the older downloads but there are some broken links which I will work on fixing.
