I am getting following error while deploying (I am using sql server 2005 standard edition and .Net 2.0 installed)

D:\SQLSpat\MsSqlSpatial-0[1].1.1>msscmd -deploy -server=myserver -db=somedb

Unhandled Exception: System.ApplicationException: Exception occured executing script:

well well well

I should have read error message properly.

sql server is expecting that command is executing from the same box and then failing to find the dll at d:\xxxx which is in my workstation.

ANSWER/SOLUTION: "I moved all files to a folder withing the sql server box and deployed successfully"
