MySQL 8 Compatibility
This should be a no-brainer, but nobody from Redgate is responding to the numerous topics and posts in the forum.
Everyone is getting the error "Unable to cast object of type "System.Byte" to type System.String"
Thank you from everyone who uses MySQL Compare
We now have comparison technology available for MySQL databases in Flyway Teams and Enterprise. Learn more - www.redgate.com/flyway
Hi - we're focused on building the next generation of DB DevOps tools from the ground up. Because we've started out with SQL Server, Oracle and PostgreSQL, we've not yet got round to MySQL. Because we'd rather focus engineering effort on building the next generation tools we've not been able to justify maintaining the MySQL comparison tools in their current form. We expect to have something early next year. Apologies for the delay.

Is there any workaround available? It otherwise renders MySQL Compare completely useless to me.
Interestingly, I got the exact same error when I was trying to use Syncfusion Grid control and byte type in C# for tinyint column. The work around I used was to declare column as short in C# instead of byte.
