#148 Failed to load driver SQLServerDriver

Face Mann

The command:
java -jar schemaSpy_5.0.0.jar -t mssql -host UUPDB -port 1433 -db updb -u facemann -p ******* -o Output -dp sqljdbc.jar
generates the error:
Failed to load driver 'com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver'

I am trying to connect to Server 2008. sqljdbc.jar is the latest Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver 3.0

Failed to load driver seems like an easy error to overcome but it is besting me.

    I too ran into a similar problem however of a different kind. I'm afraid the latest jdbc driver is currently 4.0 not 3. Please download and try it should help.(sqljdbc_4.0.2206.100_enu is the latest and has to be run with -db mssql05 option)
