Scriptio Update - Actually uses the SQL Server account

Well that was a little embarressing. When you told Scriptio to use a SQL Server account it used it to get the list of objects but not to do the actual scripting. That's fixed (0.5.4). Scriptio Install Page And on a lighter note I'm writing this from Rome. I came over a few days early to visit a friend. Of course, he had travel issues and couldn't make it back from Milan. Grrrr. I very much dislike the weather some days. Update: Most recent install and source code:
