I have been working on SQL Server 2019 version and trying to setup a load test environment using SQL Server Distributed Reply Controller – Client, however I cannot find the DReplay.exe. I thought the it will be installed as part of the installation of Distributed Reply Controller, but it didnt. Some articles suggest that it will be installed as part Management Tools from the installation media for SQL Server but the Management Tools option has been removed from the installation option.
There is also no link online to suggest an alternative way to get the DReplay.exe installed. Running out of options now.
As a desperate measure, I did try to copy the the “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server0\Tools\Binn” folder content from an older server where it was installed to the new SQL Server 2019 which did not work, throwing error “Failed to load assembly….”
Any ideas any suggestions please?? Thank you.
